Looking for a new psu

So i currently have an 750watt CM MWE Gold and it cant handle the powerspikes my 3080 is having.

Im looking to buy an seasonic powersupply with like 850watt.

Now my question was, How well do the seasonic and 3080 work together, can the seasonic unit handle the spikes the 3080 creates?

 

Does anyone have experience with it?

Hi there,

 

NVidia recommends 750W for the power supply but depending on your CPU, fans, RAM, storage and all other power consumers you can get away with even less.

I would recommend anything that's at least 800W Gold Certified for wiggle room and safety.

The RM850 from Corsair is a great choice imho, but if you're not into Corsair, try anything that's got 80 PLUS Gold and 800W.

Do you think 850W is enough? Looking at the latest Gamers Nexus video, I feel like 1000w is the minimum one should go for if the powerspikes are as bad as they say.

Seasonic is pretty bad ngl. Corsair much better. Seasonic prime has issues with the 3080, and New focus seems to be fixed, old one was not, also they are only rated at 40C.

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

Ask me anything :)

It's not about the brand only. Any brand has units that you don't want to use with a 3080.

Recommended units:

Adata XPG Core Reactor

Cooler Master V-series Gold V2

Corsair RMx/HX

Enermax Revolution D.F.

EVGA Supernova G6

Fractal Design ION+ Platinum 

Super Flower Leadex III Gold

Thermaltake GF1 PE
