If they don't return, this list will get outdated eventually. PSU tier list 3.0?

How about something crowdsourced, like I've started to make here?

Hello everyone, this is my first time posting here on the forums. I live in Egypt and many PC parts here have all sorts of weird prices (so i will import parts from amazon). My current PC is kind of dead, the hd 7770 card took a dive in the land of not working. The i3 2120 served me well and i think it is time for it to retire. While still debating whether i should get a used 3rd gen i5 , or build a new Ryzen rig. I want to know what would be a great PSU to replace the 460 w Thermaltake that came with the case. System specs may change depending on amazon prices and black Friday : Ryzen 5 1600 / 8gb ddr4 ram / 2 x 3 tb WD hdd / 1060 6gb or rx 580 8gb / any cheap Asus mobo. What is the best PSU all things considered ? if you suggest something more expensive that may last 7 years or more, I could save a bit  extra and get it. Thanks a lot for all the help.

Thanks a lot. I found the RM550x on Amazon for 92 us dollars, what is the difference between it and the Evga supernova 750 g2, or any other PSU from other well-known brands?

I am asking because I want to know more about PSUs, as the last time I built a pc was in 2011.

Different platforms, G2 is noisier. Practically not much although 750w is totally unnecessary, get a 550w instead. Also IMO dont buy 8GB of RAM, save a little longer and get 16

550W Bitfenix Whisper M is only 79 Dollars on Newegg.

 

The difference between PSU are that they are developed by different engineers with different goals in mind. So they look completely different...

Some are louder than others, some are better than others...

But right now there is something for everyone...

I have been debating for the past 24h between those two PSU's, I need help to decide lol.

 

EVGA Supernova G3 650w

http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story6&reid=500

 

Seasonic Focus Plus 650w

http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story6&reid=524

 

I am still using my PC built in 2011 with a 2500k, 550w PSU but upgraded my GPU 2 years ago for a R9 390 Strix.

 

I am having a LOT of coil whine when gaming and I have had shutdowns while gaming in the past, I think its time to upgrade my powersupply.

 

Both are priced similar

EVGA 109.99 CAD

Seasonic 112.98 CAD

https://www.amazon.ca/Seasonic-SSR-650FX-ATX12V-Modular-Compact/dp/B073H33X7R/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1540302293&sr=8-1&keywords=seasonic+focus+plus+650&dpID=417ZCoM9ODL&preST=_SX300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch 

 

What do you guys think?

Yeah I think that's a good idea.

However its not because the PSU is too weak its because its too old, so you'd be fine with another 550W though in better quality...

 

As for the PSU, how much is a be quiet Straight Power 11, bitfenix Whisper M?

Google docs *do* work, but not when you list every damn model, it gets WAY too long far too quickly.

It's only Tier 1.

Intel Core i7-8700K, 16 GB DDR4-3000, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080, Microsoft Windows 10. More.

Yeah I think that's a good idea.

However its not because the PSU is too weak its because its too old, so you'd be fine with another 550W though in better quality...

 

As for the PSU, how much is a be quiet Straight Power 11, bitfenix Whisper M?

I ended up looking at my PSU because clearly I had no idea what I had.

 

Picture attached but still :

Thermaltake TR2-500 420w/25A on 12v, 500 total, pretty sure the R9-390 needs 30A minimum on the 12v.

 

All the recommendations you guys made are 110/120, pretty much the same. Never heard of those brands tho lol.

 

 

Edit : annnnd it's in tier 7, o/.

Edit 2 : https://outervision.com/b/KAu49X It says it recommands 544w, could probably go for 650 for good measure, being 5-10$ more only.

That PSU is just garbage. 

PSU calculators are a waste of space

A proper PSU only measures it's wattage by what it can output on the 12V rails

A PC with an Extreme Edition and a R9 290 (basically the same as a R9 390) only draws about 380W from the wall in load, so about 350W 12V DC.

 

I don't know what you mean by 110/120. Do you mean 120V, meaning that's what you need? If so, really every PSU (except for the really stupidly high wattage models - 1800W and so on, and garbage), support 120V and 240V. If you mean you need 240V, I've never seen a PC PSU that cannot accept 240V, (that said, I guess my sample size is baised, since I live in a 240V only country).

You just need a good 400W PSU, and you'll be fine.

That PSU “calculator” is bogus. But we can still make use of it.

 

Plug in your GPU and storage devices to the calculator. Take the 12V rating only, and add measured average CPU power consumption + 20w.

In your case that’s 380W which is roughly inline with your systems max power consumption.

 

Absolutely no need for 650W unless you intend to overclock alot and/orupgrade to top-tier hardware.

Urgh, kill it with fire.

And PLS DO NOT USE THE PC WITH THAT PSU!

The Current Requirement are arbitary and not for the Card but the whole system and they don't calculate with good quality PSUs but with crappier, System Integrator level ones....

You heard of Xilence? LC-Power?? Kolink?

Be quiet? :)

Or newton power?

There are a couple of companys that are more on the regional side of things...

a) And probably deservingly so.

b) Outervision is crap.

Calculate the following:
i7-3930K

RX480 (1330MHz, Power Color Red Devil)

4x or 8x DDR-3 SDRAM (2 and 4 GiB Sticks)

7200rpm 3,5" Drive

S-ATA Drive

4 Fans

 

And now look at what Outervision puts out.

 

My load on Prime + Heaven is around 350W. And I've used that system with a 400W PSU.

Outervision claims something like 550W or so and recommends a crappy 700W PSU...

No, only GPU.

Storage is calculated with Peak Consumption - when the Drive starts, wich is something like 2A on +12V for 3,5" Desktop drives.

So they calculate with 25-50W - wich is bullshit.

In reality they are in the area of 10W Primary (with PSU Losses and so on), the specification is usually something like 0,5A (+250mA) for +5V and +12V Rails.

I haven't seen a 3,5" SATA Drive that uses 3,3V (yet)..

In your case that’s 380W which is roughly inline with your systems max power consumption.

You could also use the CPU + GPU TDP and assume 80% Efficiency for the CPU VRM and use that.

That's also not too bad.

Or you assume like 25W for the Board. (50W or more was back in the day of the nForce shitset that were rather unreliable and specified for 45-50W TDP IIRC, at least the 590 was)

Agreed.

 

That is something you'd want on the higher end of things or with two GPUs.

And also two CPU Sockets - wich most 650W don't come with anyway (yet)...

110/120 is 110 to 120$ shipped to my address, sorry for the confusion.

 

I am still baffled by how much power consumption went down with the years, it's been 7+ years since I really put my nose into computer hardware specifics, the more you learn! I am glad I posted here and will look at PSU between 450/550w.

 

Lastly regarding my current PSU, should I realllly order one ASAP or it's already been 7 years, it can handle a couple months? I don't have tenant insurance o/

You mentioned you're getting shut downs and coil whine, so I would recommend upgrading as soon as possible.  Those noises and symptoms would indicate that something in your PSU is failing.  It might last a couple months, or it could blow out tomorrow.

Outvision calculates 9W on the 12V rail per SATA 7.2k HDD.
