Can my PSU handle my power hungry card?

Hi, 

 

I currently have thermaltake smart se 730watt, powering i7 4790, 16GB ram, 2 SSDs and sapphire nitro+ rx580 special edition overclocked to stable 1460mhz core and 2250mhz memory. More than that it will crash, my card sometimes draws 200-220 watts @1.25v max. 

 

Can my psu be causing crashes?

Can't be sure but all i can say is that the PSU in in tier 6 in the new PSU Tier List 3.0. Same goes for the old list etc.

In otherwords. Get a new one..........

 

Regardless if it is the reason it crashing or not

You could probably have a 450W PSU and be fine. If a 580 takes 700 watts then it would probably be on fire. Like actually lol. That's just how overclocking is. Chips are stable to a certain point, then they're not.

R.I.P. Asus X99-A motherboard, April 2016 - October 2018, may you rest in peace. 5820K, if I ever buy you a new board, it'll be a good one.
