Athlon 750k and Radeon 7870 on Corsair CX430?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

I'm currently building a new mini ITX rig, and I was wondering if a Corsair CX430 (430Watts) would be able to power an Athlon 750k and a Sapphire 7870?
Note, I also have 1 HDD, and a Cooler Master Sedion 120M (with the intention of doing an overclock)

I did the extreme PSU calculator, and got a "suggested PSU" of 400W

Am I good with the 430? or Should I bump up?

If I need to bump up, what would be a good option?

Thanks

Eric

No problem.I've run max overclocks on a 6 core Phenom II w/6790 GPU and 12 fans and 4 HDD's on a 450w XFX.As long as it's working properly.You're probably going to pull 250w at most.
