Thread Starter

MOBO: ASUS P8P67 Pro rev 3.0
CPU: i5 2500k
RAM: g.skill sniper F3-10666CL9D-8GBSR
Case: NZXT Phantom White
CPU Cooler: Antec Kuhler 620
PSU: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W
Vid: MSI 560 GTX Ti Twin Frozr II

You only need a 650Watt PSU for SLI

XFX Core Edition PRO650W (P1-650S-NLB9) 650W ATX12V 2.2 & ESP12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire
(XFX like Corsair use Seasonic as the OEM so its a quaily powersupply)

$59 after rebate.


So maybe spent that extra money on a D14?

I added for expandability, in case I want to add 4 2TB drives for RAID later. I'm a little leary with power supplies as I've only ever used OCZ Fatal1ty series. Is corsair a good PSU manufacturer?

EDIT, I just reread the OP and that you ordered it so its not really worth canceling the order.

You will still be fine on the 650Watt unit, 600Watt would be fine even so theres no worries about the HDDs.

I would say that Corsair are one of the best manufacturer, but thats down to the seasonic parts that they use on most of their PSUs.

I would consider OCZ to be one of the worst, they are basicly just time bombs.

I would say it will run every game going at High/Max settings 2xAA with a decent frame rate, it will easily run BF3 and Skyrim etc..

I say good call on that PSU, you'll have plenty of room for expanding, and it's a good investment for maybe even a future build after this one!

For future I would: SLi

I wasnt asking for suggestions, my request was to look at the hardware I've compiled and offer thoughts on how well it will work for things like gaming, virtual machines and potentially openwebspider as well as potential issues with anything I've bought.

I have the Antec Kuhler 620 and it's a bit disappointing. It gets a little too warm for my liking at 4.6GHz+.

Thanks for the heads up. Would you say it gets at or above 70c?
post #10 of 10
It idles well, i'm sitting at the high 30's at idle. At 4.7GHz 1.38v it gets well above 70, at full load it sits around 77-79, with momentary spikes up to 80-82.
