Then put in two former high-end cards under stress of gaming and you sure come close to the limit with it all. What exactly is a good buffer to have ? It seems like this is not taken into account.

I hear the Rosewill power supply's have been getting some good rep lately so yeah, the hive series are a-ok thumb.gif
Here is a rock solid choice.. just stinks that its not painted

Thats actually a fairly mediocre unit. The HIVE would be better. Just b/c it says antec/corsair on the side does not guarantee its the best thing since sliced bread.

Noting to get confused about, you're working with benching numbers which even though important, are not relevant for this scenario.... as far as I understand the thread, he's not going for HWbot rankings with this setup, he's using it for games.. and 650W is plenty for that.

As far as benching goes, he would be smart to avoid running synthetics for the CPU and VGAs simultaneously for extended periods of time(for that would indeed stress the PSU too much).

In regards to buffer, ~10% for mainstream units(like the one mentioned here, none for high ends(Seasonic X, Rosewill Capstone, Kingwin Lazer Gold/Platinum and the likes) and at least 20% for poor units(those that can't do full power without massive regulation issue or poor output quality)

Makes sense to me. I guess I always steer on the more conservative side of things just to be sure. I knew he wasn't going to stress it but like to be safe. smile.gif

I agree that is a mediocre unit power wise. I wasn't bashing the Hive series by recommending an antec. Its just a good unit thats modular, 80+ cert, and can handle mid range cards in xfire. I'd go with the Hive too.. its 650/750 vs 550.

Good call then, theres plenty of misinformation on the subject. I actually have a BP550+ (see sig), its solid, and was a good choice for me when i bought it years ago.

I've used it before and read all the stickies. I just like to know why when something is said not just take it at face value. What's the fun in that ?
