PSU and Case recommendation

pitoki
 Share

Hello guys, so I am building a new pc and I almost know all parts, that I want to connect.

I am still unclear what case and what powersupply to get. These are the parts i picked so far: 

  1. AMD Ryzen 7 2700X: 310,47€ (https://geizhals.at/amd-ryzen-7-2700x-yd270xbgafbox-a1804456.html?hloc=at)
  2. Gigabyte B450 Aorus Pro: 114€ (https://geizhals.at/gigabyte-b450-aorus-pro-a1858848.html?hloc=at)
  3. G.Skill RipJaws V DDR4 16 GB: 135,03€ (https://geizhals.at/g-skill-ripjaws-v-schwarz-dimm-kit-16gb-f4-3200c16d-16gvkb-a1327025.html?hloc=at)
  4. Scythe Mugen 5 PCGH-Edition: 49,52€ (https://geizhals.at/scythe-mugen-5-pcgh-edition-scmg-5pcgh-a1603022.html#offerlist)
  5. MSI RTX2070 Gaming 8GB : 519€ (already bought it)
  6. Samsung SSD 970 EVO 500GB, M.2: 121,92€ (https://geizhals.at/samsung-ssd-970-evo-500gb-mz-v7e500bw-a1809116.html?hloc=at)

I would still use a SDD and 2 HDD from my old computer. So at the moment it would cost 1294,94€ with taxes and shipping.

I would like to overclock this build but I am still a newby, but I foundt out that the Ryzen 7 2700X is easily overclockable to 4.3 Ghz with a Voltage of 1.3.

And the graphicscard should also be quite easy to overclock. To find out what kind of powersupply is should buy I used https://outervision.com/power-supply-calculator

But with all my components and an overclock on the cpu it says Load Wattage: 557W and Recommended PSU Wattage 607W.

However, when i try to tweek the graphics card in the calculator: It can go up to Load Wattage: 906W and Recommended PSU Wattage 956W.

 

Can you please tell my what kind of Powersupply I should need, if I would to overclock my CPU, RAM  and GPU.

Also can you recommend any good case with sound dampening and a fan controller (no side glas needed). How many case fans should I get for a good airflow which is quiet.

 

Please ask anything, if I wrote something unclear.

Define R6 and be quiet! Silent Base 601. (Both come with solid side panel options) The 601 will be quieter than the R6, but the R6 will have better airflow. I would persoanlly get the R6

As a lot of times are the recommendations from @TVwazhereright again. As for the psu, that system isn't going to pull more then 600 for sure. Take a look at the tier list and select a tier 3+ psu of your choise and budget.

I recommend not wasting time doing that. The 2070 is a 175W card, so the system should draw under 300W at load at stock. So a good 450-550W PSU is plenty for overclocking. 

For the cheapest options, there's the Focus and Formula for €65.

https://geizhals.at/seasonic-focus-gold-450w-atx-2-4-ssr-450fm-a1749604.html?hloc=at&v=e

Then, for €80, you have the Focus Plus Platinum and Whisper M 450W. Odd price for the Focus Plus Platinum, seems oddly low.

And for €90-95, you have the Straight Power 11 and Whisper M.

 okay awesome - thanks for that info. Then I could reuse my power supply, which is 550 W. I didn't think it would be enough so I was looking for a new one.

Does the R6 has a fan controller, which I can controll by myself - like the switch on the be quiet601

What model is it? If it's a low end one, it still might be a good idea to replace it.

It's one you plug into your motherboard, so you control it by software. You can control three 4 pin and six 3 pin fans

What software would work with that? Could I control it over Windows 10?

That's most definitely low end. You should replace it.

Any software that controls fan speed. UEFI/Bios's on motherboards sometimes also have this feature.
