Recommended power supply for 24GB RAM. - Page 2

post #11 of 46
If you are looking at like a % of wattage increase from 12GB to 24GB you won't find anything like that.

I will on the other hand tell you there increase in power at full load should technically not be much different than any six sticks of memory configuration.

I would love to suggest you this very reliable, and clean PSU from Corsair, currently on sale.

Its long lasting, great reviews, clean & ample power for now and your future upgrades (in case you attempt GTX 480 SLI.)

Or its slightly less powerful cousin which fits your budget better:

Yeah, what is this build for?

Depending on your situation, Sandy Bridge may or may not be better, but if you're willing to wait another 3-6 months you could get on the 2011 socket with quad-channel RAM.

P.S. Corsair (rebranded Seasonic) and Seasonic PSU's are awesome, I use the AX850 and it's cold to the touch.

My budget is around $1500. That's why I went with the ASUS and GTX480 because everything better would easily cost me twice as much.

I need the rig for high-end gaming and rendering (Maya). The the price for 24GB RAM sounded fairly reasonable to me, so why not use them?

*edit*
I chose the 970 over the 2600k for the same reason. I'll really need all 6 cores and 12 threads for rendering.

I would recommend the XFX Core Edition 650 watt. It is a SeaSonic platform and a great piece of work. You can get it modular or nonmodular and it should be cheaper than the Corsair 650 watt.

[Edit]
Just did a little more research and it's nearly exactly the same internally as the Corsair TX650 V2. The only difference lies in the amount of PCI adapters. Both are based on the new SeaSonic platform.

It depends on what the person will be using it for. A 970 can trump a 2600K when all six cores are used.

@OP RAM sticks use very little power so it isn't going to influence your power requirements.

Wow! Thanks for the quick replies.
So, then I'll go with the 1600 for RAM. The XFX XXX Edition 650 sounds like something I was looking for.

lol, 24GB of RAM? Do you work for Disney Pixar or something? What're you doing that's even exceeding 4GB? Are you running out of RAM on 4GB-8GB? No? Then what's the point of 24GB? RAM doesn't have some 'recommended' power supply requirements, either. And the only time you need to install more RAM, is if you're running out. So ask yourself this: "Hmm, was I running out on 4GB?" Are you thinking that 24GB would give you super l33t mega-fps in games? Newsflash: it won't. Games don't even utilize more than 2.5-3GB of RAM.

Go with 12 I have twelve and I've rarely even used 6 that's doing rendering Linux package compilation and encoding. I don't think you need 24 outside of certain professional applications.

Ah! I guess it's better to invest into a better motherboard (Rampage 3 Extreme) and less RAM for the same effect? I guess I'm good with 12 GB for the next 2 years and will upgrade later on.
