Are you sure the Cooler Master V550S will be enough for me to run such card ; and enough should I plan to overclock both the GPU and CPU on air in the future ?

Its not required

They are talking about peak rated power supplies and not continuous rated

Well, if you say it's fine, and I will be able to overclock both cpu as well as gpu on air, then I will get the Cooler Master V550S for sure and cross it off my worried mind ! Done.

Last order of business, the GPU. Maybe I should buy it in France, and have a friend ship it to me.

Sapphire 7950 Dual-X OC : 1819 dkk or (180 euros in France so 1332dkk)
Sapphire R9 280X OC : 2100 dkk or (228 euros in France so 1687dkk)
Sapphire R9 280X Toxic : 2345 dkk
Sapphire R9 280X Vapor : 2242 dkk (260 euros in France so 1924dkk)

Edit :

I'm being told that the Cooler Master V550S is not worth 91 €. That yes it is Gold efficient, but the Bronze efficient XFX 550W unit is probably better built (the OEM is Seasonic instead of Enhance), and costs 35 € less! That you'll never bridge that price gap with just a few percent higher efficiency... that you might save a few euros per year if you use the PC very actively.

Also have another friend telling me to get the Sea Sonic S12II-620Bronze instead. what do you think, Sea Sonic S12II-620 or Cooler Master VS Series V550S or XFX 550W ? doh.gif

When they make those recommendations, they have to account for the fact that not all 750W "rated" PSUs are created equal. Some have less than 600W available on the 12V rails, and would never be able to sustain even those levels without overheating.

for example: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817190028 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817148046

A well made high efficiency 550W PSU can deliver more clean power, for longer than either of those, with less risk to the system.


The 280X, has a TDP rating of 250W. 3rd party testing reveals that this is pretty close to accurate under worst case conditions (some tests suggest up to ~265W at "stock" clocks while bit-mining etc). Overclocked on the stock heatsink you're probably not going to be able to go much over 300W before running into stability/thermal problems anyway.

The i5-4670K at stock clocks will dissipate up to ~80W when used with a discrete GPU, and up to ~120-130W when overclocked pretty hard. After factoring in VRM losses, that's about 150W...

The CPU and GPU account for the majority of the dissipated power in a machine, so worst case scenario, if you overclock both your CPU/GPU to a practical level, they will never use more than ~450W combined under a stress test, unless you have a motherboard with very low efficiency VRMs or something. So then, you just need enough additional power for the remainder of the system components like the RAM, southbridge, ethernet controller, hard disk, SSD, fans, leds, optical drive, sound, etc. Most of those are a few watts each, so 550W is a great PSU size for this build if the PSU selected is of exceptional quality. (Which is what is being recommended to you). Exceptional PSUs have overhead, poor quality PSUs can't even run at their rated power. An exceptional 450W PSU could technically power this rig, overclocked, and under a stress test, but I think most would agree it's not worth pushing it that tight.


I'm a firm believer in analyzing a system build carefully to estimate maximum theoretical power consumption under a stress test, and then sizing the PSU to be able to deliver this "worst case scenario" within the label rating. I believe that 550W is right on target for this build, but you may have viable options in the 500-800+W range worth considering. Sometimes, a really nice 750W PSU goes on sale for less than the 550W. In a performance class machine like this, there is no downside to selecting the higher wattage PSU if it is of equal or better quality to the lower wattage unit at a similar or lower price. While a larger than necessary PSU will sometimes translate to a lower conversion efficiency at idle for the computer, the real world effect of this is not typically significant or meaningful.

Build quality is not everything and OEM is even less

Sounds like a Seasonic fanboy told you the Core Edition was better

Voltage regulation and ripple as well as build quality fan used and last price is how you find whats best for the money

The last piece of the puzzle is to find a graphic card.

I can see the R9 280X disappearing from online stores everyday. Seems like there is none left in Denmark, for a reasonable price at least. Out of stock everywhere, or way too expensive in other places :'(

kokorochin,

If it helps you any, spending less than 10% of the build budget on the V550S is a very good allocation of resources.


I've been resorting to recommending the GTX770 4GB primarily as an alternative to the 280X, since the 280X is sold out everywhere, and is suffering from price increases related to the supply/demand situation going on. Perhaps as a helpful "tipping" point for consideration. The GTX770 has support for 4K video decoding, while the 280X doesn't. This may influence the long-term usefulness of the GPU in a HTPC application.

The PSU recommendations are simply for peak-rated PSUs. A typical 750W peak-rated PSU would have a +12V capacity of about 540W, which is the same +12V capacity of some very good 550W PSUs. The V550S is one of them.

 

The PSU recommendations made by NVIDIA and AMD (and many professional reviews) mean nothing else.

 

See this, though:

 

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/asus_radeon_r9_280x_top_review,8.html

 

With one 280X under full load in their system, their PSU pulled 352W from the wall outlet. This is the power draw of the entire system as measured at the wall outlet during an extremely demanding video game simulation. So, their CPU wasn't working very hard. This means I still have to add some wattage for the CPU. Let's say that your CPU would be pulling 150W from the wall under full load while overclocked. If so, then that would make the PSU pulling 502W from the wall outlet. This means that if your PSU were 90% efficient while pulling 502W from the wall outlet, then your computer is pulling 451W from the PSU. Your actual power draw will be lower, peaking at around 400-425W.

 

So, again, you could technically use a good 450W PSU if you really wanted to make it interesting. However, a good 550W PSU is recommended because your gaming power draw will always be a little bit close to a good 450W PSU's total continuous capacity.

Hello guys,

I just wanted to thank every person that took the time to help and advise me. Just know I really appreciate it. I took each and every advice into consideration, as well as spending countless hours reading dozens and dozens of reviews for each component. In the end, I made my own choices and I am proud to announce that I have ordered all the parts. I went a bit over budget, but heck.

For those interested, here is the final list of the parts :

Board : MSI Z87-G43
CPU : Intel Core i5-4670K
GPU : Sapphire R9 280X Toxic Edition OC 3GB
RAM : Gskill RipjawsX F3-14900CL8D-8GBXM
SSD : Samsung 840 Evo 120gb
Fan : Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
PSU : Cooler Master V550S
CASE : 500R
Dvd : LG GH24NSB0
HDD : WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB

Once again, big thanks to everyone involved in my decision process.

Take care, and see you around smile.gif
