GTX 580 on Silent Pro M600?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hello guys, I'm getting a M600 from a close friend of mine...

So planning on GTX580/570 for my rig(in signature)

If it can handle a GTX 580, i'll get the 580.. Else i'll stick to 570...

Need ur valuable suggestions..

P.S : Not going to overclock any components..

You will be fine with a single 580 the power consumption between a 570 and 580 is actually quite small.

You can run a 580 off a quality 550, even with both the CPU and the GPU overclocked (I did with no problems).

Agreed. The problem here is that the Silent Pro M600 is a mislabeled 500W PSU. Check the label:



So it can only provide 480W on the 12V rail, so it might be a little tight. If you just game and don't overclock everything to death I'm sure you'd be fine with a 580. However, I would avoid running LinX+Furmark type maximum stress on the PSU tests. Having said that I think the worst that could happen in that situation is that the PSU will just shut off.

PSU rating is total not just the 12V rails.

Actually in modern systems the rating pretty much is just the 12V. Nearly all the components draw on 12V so a 600W PSU should be able to provide nearly all of that on the 12V rail (or rails). You will find the rating for decent PSUs on the recommended PSU list can all provide nearly all their rated wattage on their 12V rail(s).

I realize that some PSUs are rated by just their 12v but that doesn't mean the Silent Pro 600M is mislabeled. Regardless 480w of 12v power is more than enough for what he has.

Thanks for ur reply guys..

So w/o OCing CPU n GPU also w/o any stress testing, 2500k+GTX 580 are fine on a M600.. Right?

On a 550W PSU you ran a OCed CPU+580 ??

Which PSU is that? VX550?
