Silverstone TJ08-E Owners Club. - Page 52

post #511 of 7172
If the 2 power supplies are close to the same cost, I would go with the higher wattage. At 450 you dont have enough juice to run everything you are planning. Optimal for overclocking is a single rail PSU, but I dont know the cost where you are, so i leave that up to you (I still recomend higher than a 450.

A single 580 at max can draw some 250watts, core i5 draws 95Watts, 4dimms draws about 8Watts (1.6 ~=2x4 ~=8) 1 hdd ~10 watts. SSD ~5watts. dvd ~5watts. fans are about 5 watts each. Just keep that in mind, IMHO get a good motherboard, power supply, and case (you got that down). You can always upgrade if you have the right motherboard PSU and case ^__^

I would try to stay with a z68 because they are ivy-bridge compatible, work well with SSDs, and mATX layout they are pretty good. I am staying out of the power supply department but to help you make up your mind, There are POWER SUPPLY CALCULATORS that you can use to guesstimate the wattage you actually need for your build. (just check your video cards and see what they recommend for amperage/wattage).

I'm pretty sure all the components, except the GPU PSU, will be a proper match.

Regarding the PSU for the lovely Silverstone TJ08B-E case, the recommended PSU wattage differs per online calculator.

From high to low:
Asus calculator: 450 Watt
Newegg calculator: 448 Watt
Extreme Powervision calculator: 406 Watt
Cooler Master calculator: 336 Watt.

All with i5 2500K CPU and capacitator aging of 30% (Extreme calculator only).
Extreme calculator has the most options and used them all applicable to my use (USB devices, etc.). Recommended is 406 Watt.

Pff, confusing a bit.


edit:meant to say PSU instead of GPU. Soz.

well looks like most are above 400w, so just go with atleast a 600watt and be safe

Thank you sir, That is a nice way to end an argument. If you want to SLI your videocards, larger PSU. if you dont. a 450 should be just about right.

I hope it answers more questions than brings up

Too bad Silverstone doesn't make an ATX mobo capable version of this case.

 

Does anyone know if it's in their plans?

What do you mean by that? I think the Gene-Z is a perfect mobo for this case.

I don't think you understood me.  I wasn't commenting on someones build I was inquiring/commenting that too bad Silverstone doesn't make an ATX mobo capable version of this case - as you already know this current version can only take up to a mATX sized mobo.

 

Otherwise, it's one nice case.

LOL my bad..... I didn't think about it. I just assumed you met MATX. Why would you want a ATX, just curious.
