Is CX600M sufficient for GTX 1080 Ti & 6600k overclocked?

 Share

Go to solution Solved by STRMfrmXMN,

600W is plenty, the CX600M is the borderline minimum quality of PSU I'd pair with a 1080 Ti

Hi Guys, 

In my desktop I have
- Aorus 1080 Ti overclocked to 1950 MHz (it is not stable beyond that)
- 6600k Overclocked to 4.8 GHz at 1.4V
- NZXT Kraken X62
- G.Skill Trident 32 GB @3000 Mhz
- MSI Z170A Gaming Pro Carbon Mobo
- 3 Be Quiet Silent Wings 3 case Fans
- 1x 500GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD & 1 Firecuda 2TB drive

All these are powered by Corsair CX 600M. The system runs fine most of the time but recently it froze while playing Company of Heroes 2, other games like Overwatch and Ghost Recon seem to run fine. 

But this made me wonder if my power supply is sufficient for this build? Can I get higher overclock on my GPU with a bigger PSU? 

Any comments are much appreciated, thanks!

What about the SeaSonic S12II 620W?

Thanks for the reply.

 

I guess my 1080 Ti overclocking is not limited by the PSU, I tried to overclock it to 2 GHz but it's very unstable.

My question here is at 1440p, how much difference is there in FPS of games between 1910 MHz & at 2000 MHz. Is it worth the hassle or it's just for bragging rights? :)

overclocking is iffy, most pascal cards can hit 2000+, a few can't and a few can hit 2100+, all up to the silicon lottery. as for how much difference 2k would make, not much, maybe a frame or two sometimes, you honestly would never notice
