Corsair HX650w psu enough for...please help.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

These are my specs for my secondary pc (later on i will purchase a haswell system)

EVGA X58 SLI LE Mb
EVGA GTX570 Superclocked
Intel Core i7-920 (do) STOCK SPEED
Intel SSD 60gb
WD 500gb HDD
4 case fans
5 fans for radiator (water cooling)
(a total of 9 fans)
Aquastream XT pump (5watt)
Corsair AX850 psu

I want to use the AX850 for my haswell build and i still got a Corsair HX650w psu. Will the 650w psu handle all the above at stock speeds and still have some headroom not for OC but for stability i dont want my pc to operate at almost max....

I did check my power consumption which is approx 375w during gaming (crysis 2) and approx 170w idle. This should handle it but im concerned with 9 fans due to "enough" amps..?

Thanks in advance.

If you can get your I7 920 to 5Ghz and your GTX 570 to 1Ghz, the HX650 will still ask for more. So yes, you're fine with the 650w unit on the said build.
