So, i ordered an RX570 Sapphire Nitro+ 4GB version then i noticed my PSU which is Xilence 500w only has an 6PCIe connector so i decided to order an 6 to 8 pin adapter, Will it run my Xilence 500w for a couple of months until i buy a new one? currently on a tight budget (sry for bad english aswell.) can anyone help me?

It should be alright, as the card only is rated to draw 150W. You can get 75W from the slot and 75W from a 6-pin connector, so it shouldn't be pushed that hard. If you are concerned, I'd recommend reducing the power limit of the RX 570. If you are up for it, you could also undervolt the card to make it draw less power.

500W is the minimum recommended for this card.  You can try it, but if you start running into issues, it would be your first troubleshooting step.

500W is nowhere near the amount of power the RX 570 can draw. OP should be fine with their PSU - the 570 isn't a very power hungry card. I know it's recommended, but it's not required.

Yes It will be alright 😉

RX570 is not that power consuming card so you will be fine ")

I'm just going by Sapphire's own spec sheet:

SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RADEON RX 570 4GB (sapphiretech.com)

 

500w is the minimum recommended PSU.  Number 1 rule of PSU sourcing is ALWAYS go bigger than the minimum recommended.  

 

Yes, you *can* get away with it, but there's always a gamble, especially no knowing how many other components the system will be running.  What processor is the system running?  Is it overclocked? etc.

Yes, I realize that 500W is the recommended amount. However, the 570 isn't a power hungry card by default. I've got two of them, and I used to run one of them in a system paired with a Ryzen 7 2700 and a 450W PSU. You can also reduce the power consumption if needed. 

 

Besides, the OP indicated that they're only going to be using their current PSU for a couple months until they can get a new one. It'll be fine if they limit the power consumption.

Is it this 10 years old fake 500W doorstop that you have.

the issue here is that you're going to be pulling potentially up to 150w over a connector and cable only rated for 75.

 

you might see excess voltage droop, you might see the connector getting toasty, you might see instability, you might bump into OCP on the power supply.

 

i'm assuming you arent going to actually smoke something in the psu, it'll probably work, but this is very much a 'do not recommend'.

Is that a label misprint or are they really trying to pass off a 350W power supply as a 500W?
