Is this PSU enough?

OPSJono

So as some of you seen my previous post here: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/511099-brand-new-power-supply-blew-up/

 

I had a 450w SFX PSU blow up after 10 hours of use.

 

I'm sure it was just a faulty unit or something, but in reality a 450w doesn't give me any room to upgrade my GPU.

 

I'm considering upgrading to something like a 980ti, given that my 670 died when the PSU blew.

 

So what's the thoughts on 550w for:

Core i7 6700k; stock speeds; Noctua L9i cooler
32GB DDR4 RAM
EVGA Stinger Mini ITX motherboard
Samsung 256GB 840 Pro SSD
Crucial 500GB SSD
2x Noctua NF-F12's

GTX 980ti?

 

This is the PSU I would buy: http://www.silverstonetek.com/legacy.php?area=en&model=ST55F-G%20(v1.x)&tno=2

Unless you guys have a better suggestion?

 

Thanks! :)

I wouldn't mind more watts, but is there a good SFX one?

 

Limited to an SFX form factor due to my Node 202 case. :)

Silverstone has a 600W SFX unit. That would fit in your Node 202.

INTEL CORE i5-7600K | ASUS ROG STRIX B250i GAMING | CRUCIAL BALLISTIX SPORT LT 16GB | EVGA GTX 970 SC | EVGA B3 550W

The Silverstone SX600-G is a good SFX unit.

Ah, thanks guys! I didn't know (or even think to check) if Silverstone did a 600w SFX.
