PSU Noob: Thermaltake Smart SE 730w & RX580?

Hi, 

 

I have Thermaltake Smart SE 730w PSU which is i know its not good psu, but can it power my rig? am having black screens momentary when trying to overclock the gpu. 

 

I dont understant required Amps needed, or single or double rail.. The guide says that the 12v rail will provide 57amps, is this enough? 

 

My cpu i7 4790 draws around 50watts, my gpu draws around 200 watts and sometimes reaching 230 watts. 

 

Is the psu enough.? I dont want to damage any components. 

 

Thanks,

That power supply should have plenty of for that system unless it is failing which could be a possibility. Are you sure you are not just pushing your gpu clocks too high? Typically when a gpu is clocked too high you get a black screen as the driver tries to recover.

Yeah it's plenty. The black screens is just from the OC being unstable and the GPU resetting.

Watt ain't issue, a good 400W PSU would be fine.
You don't have a good PSU; so I'd not use it.
