>buying more then a 550w for a single gpu setup
I overclock my i7-4790k and my two 980 Tis. I think I draw close to 1000Ws from the wall, probably around the mid 900W range. Y'all niggaz forget how much power the 980 Tis draw over the smaller Maxwells.
It degrades over time. If you draw close to the maximum rating of the PSU, you will degrade the components' lifespan significantly. That's why it's always better to have a PSU that's rated 150-175% higher than your actual need if you plan using the build for over 5 years. If you have a PSU that has an active fan profile and it's spinning up frequently, you might want to consider getting a better PSU or lower the voltage/clock on your CPU or GPU.
Yeah this is false. Look at my old friend Linus video to see how much power he draws FROM THE WALL with dual 570s. The same shit still applies today and if anything we have BETTER power consumption then back then.
That's only if you're planning to run it at load for extended periods of time.
Under normal use a PC should be using less than half of it's max power consumption ~70-80% of the time.
I dont think his point is that an AMD card will use that much, it was more, if that person is getting the power consumption he reports form a single card, it's probably AMD since AMD's high end 300 series with the exception of the nano use about 70-100 watts more than their maxwell equivalent under normal load.
Okay senpai. I'll just be sitting here enjoying the silence because the fan on my semi-passive 750W unit doesn't ever spin up.
Yeah, like I'm going to pay more for an inferior unit that offers no room for future expansion.
Shit, it's a 480W unit. My bad. It delivers up to 456W on 12V and I mixed it up.
>most likely untill it wont support new motherboards and such
Should be good for a decade or more. You can still use ancient PSUs perfectly fine with modern gear with a few adapters
what? it's called budgeting. some people manage money differently.
I could buy two cards now if I wanted. Or I could buy one, see if I'm happy with its performance on its own over a period (say 12 weeks) and then decide if I want to wait until the next sale to grab another.
>all these retards trying to justify there 1000w psu with there single 980ti setup
here op, get BTFO
cpu is at idle btw, i can make it go 850w if i load up prime at the same time
Let me guess, you did a bios unlock for your voltage to go higher then normal.
Also you're only pulling under 550W from your power supply you fucking moron. You have to factor in 90% efficiency from the wall.
Either way don't do a bios unlock for your voltage and you DON't need more then a 550w for single gpu's
>buying average-tier components that cant OC
i said above real world usage is around 200~300w gaming. that isn't the point though. at no point should your components be able draw more than what the psu can provide, normal use or not.
>Let me guess, you did a bios unlock for your voltage to go higher then normal.
it's the stock voltage lol. afterburner doesn't even support changing my cards voltage.
>Also you're only pulling under 550W from your power supply you fucking moron. You have to factor in 90% efficiency from the wall.
that's only the gpu. the cpu is idle.
>Either way don't do a bios unlock for your voltage and you DON't need more then a 550w for single gpu's
with all these conditions why don't you just spend an extra $20 and buy a 850w unit?
>with all these conditions why don't you just spend an extra $20 and buy a 850w unit?
because he is one of the retards that doesnt know that the PSU is one of the only components you can future-proof
Can confirm this.
Overclocked 5820k, Fury X, custom loop, few other things only got me this maximum gaymen on Witcher 3 @ 1440p
Planning to Tri-Fire soon on my AX1200i
heres the card at stock
heaven is worthless. run occt and report back.
my killawatt and ups reports the same usage. i can record them but it's too much work for just proving you wrong
I literally just followed what you did. DX11 wouldn't run..
you got the settings wrong. you need to change the shaders to 7 and enable error checking.
the last 290x i tested drew over 650w from the wall from that test so i'm guessing your fury x will hit either 700w or 800w or outright throttle.
Bought this 1200W on Ebay Australia to the equivalent of $280USD, just today. It will power an overclocked 4790K, and two overclocked 980 ti strix in SLI.
dont listen to your brother!
you would actually do fine even with a good 500w psu.
get a solid 650w one if you still want to be on the safe side.
gpus and hardware in general need less and less power with each new generation, so your 650w will be "future proof" for quite a while.
Implying those are accurate for loads which aren't purely resistive, or which have non sinusoidal waveforms LIKE FUCKING COMPUTER PSUs.
It is not on me to prove something which you claim.
replying from work atm and just dropping by to say I really don't give a shit if you think the software is accurate or not lol. I don't code it and jonny guru tested and found it to be extremely accurate within like .5%
If you're so smart why don't you educate us how accurate those meters are, hell I'm up for learning something
>buy a single r9 270x
>search psu requirements
>whole bunch of people say nothing less than 500w because AMD said so
>better to be safe than sorry :^)
>total system power consumption 260w
