H80 power consumption

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just a quick, random question: how much power does the H80 draw? I'm calculating how much power i'll need from my next PSU, and was wondering if any additional wattage needs to be accounted for since its a water pump and all.

A 750 should be plenty for you even if you SLI. I would get an 850w but thats because I like the overkill smile.gif

Edit: The power draw cant be over 25w seeing as the mcp655 pump is 25w.

Insignificant from a PSU calculator standpoint.

Rule of thumb I use is to add the load temps from your CPU, GPU(s), and add another 100W or so to get a rough idea.

For example the system in your sig could easily be run on a 650W PSU, but you might want to go to 750 or 850 if you plan on going 2 or 3-way SLI.

Thanks for the info! Every major hardware camp should have someone on OCN cool.gif

I do plan on getting a second 570, so that's why I'm asking. Just making sure there's no unknown variables that I missed.
