You are ignoring the fact that the unit I have is of very good quality, recommended in these forums by OCN's extremely knowledgeable PSU expert.

It has a design in limit that will only allow so much amperage to the cpu, has nothing to do with quality, nothing to do with wattage rating , it is simply what it is designed to be.

I looked up the Etasis and it does seem to be a pretty good quality unit.

Although it certainly looks to have a design flaw, as pretty much any other quality 750w unit will easily dish out the amperage you need.

But to answer the OP's question; yes, 650W will be plenty.

People in this forum are really hard on MSI's AMD motherboards, because of problems they have had with the power delivery system, vrm's in particular. I am amazed by this, I've used close to 50 MSI boards in the last 10 years or so , overclocked the beans out of these rigs and never damaged a single MSI board by doing so. Lucky? perhaps but I think it has a lot to do with my choice in power supplies.
At any rate, it's just my opinion smile.gif

That's because many of MSI's AMD motherboards came with terrible VRMs and were nowhere near capable of decent overclocks or running next-gen high wattage processors.

While I also firmly believe in always using a high quality PSU, the VRMs on those boards would have still blown up even if you'd have used a Platinum Seasonic unit.

Factor in another 200w for the 670 at stock, it would be ok. Add an moderate GPU overclock, and you would be close.

If you limit your 8350 to~4.6ghz or so, youll be fine.

another 200W for the 670 at stock MINUS the idle power draw of the GTX 690 in their test setup, you mean?

It's a great psu in a suitable application. I was just making sure that people weren't misinformed by stige's saying that any 650 watt psu would be fine.
As for your statement about MSI boards, I have used only the top AMD boards they make and have gotten great overclocks from cpu's ranging from the 2500 barton to the FX 8350. 990FXA GD-80V2 - 5.5 ghz 8 cores on the vishera, 790FX -gd 70's with 1500 to 1800 mhz overclocks on 960T's as x4's or x6's also even the locked multiplier 1045 T and 840 x4's have seen the high side of 4600 mhz , great fsb on those boards , 4567 mhz on a x 4, 960T on the NF980 - G-65.
If you look at my profile on HWBOT almost all of my subs are on MSI boards, and the most exotic cooling i've used is watercooling.
The 840 X4 is probably my favorite, I got all the cpu hardware cups with it on a stock 965 be cooler. http://hwbot.org/submission/2319460_

I've had great luck with MSI boards smile.gif

I'm glad we live in a world where an average 800mhz OC (though many are capable of 5ghz) is suddenlty 'mediocre' at best.

Look at it this way, the 8320 will hit about 4.8-5.0ghz as well with decent cooling, and it's clocked at 3.5ghz stock. 1.5ghz OC sounds pretty impressive to me for an 8 core thumb.gif

At stock you'll be fine, but just be careful when overclocking.


People read the threads?

So yes, its ok, dont worry thumb.gif

My configuration pulls from the wall about 200W with CPU @ 4.0Ghz 1.28v in Dirt Showdown. CPU alone at 4.5Ghz @1.425v in Cinebench pulls about 210W from the wall, and 160w with 4.0Ghz @1.28v !! 4.8Ghz and overvolted ( to get better picture for power consumptio rise ) to 1.48v in cinebench it pulls 260w. All ofcourse is the HOLE system. So, Vishera octa core does not require 1000W PSU for overclokcing !!! I had FX 8120, and this new FX 8320 is much better both power consumption and temperature wise. I noticed that it does not go so rapidly north with power consumption when one rises voltage and clocks as buldozer did. So for GTX 670 and Vishera overclocked, good 650W PSU is more then capable. I reckon in gaming scenario such system will draw about 300w to 350w ( 400W top ). With 650w u r good to go smile.gif,

I need some help with overclocking redface.gif. What should I turn off in the bios and what setting should I use trying to get 4.5ghz. I am using the GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 motherboard. thumb.gif
post #48 of 75
I dont know your specs, but in general, u should get voltage to about 1.4v give or take for 4.5Ghz 24/7 stable.
post #49 of 75
Set voltage to 1.425v and multiplier to 22.5x for 4.5GHz. Watch your temp. If you can do that and stay cool enough, then put bus at 210 and give a little more volts for 4.75GHz. I managed to do that, but my cooling isn't sufficient to safely run that.
