PSU need

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I have started to build a new rig. Here are the specs:

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: Asus Z87-WS ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Memory: G.Skill Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-2400 Memory
Storage: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 240GB 2.5" Solid State Disk x4
Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB 2.5" Solid State Disk x2
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive x2
Storage: Western Digital VelociRaptor 250GB 3.5" 10000RPM Internal Hard Drive x4
Storage: Western Digital VelociRaptor 300GB 3.5" 10000RPM Internal Hard Drive x4
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Hydro Copper Video Card (2-Way SLI)
Raid Card: Rocketraid 2720 SGL
Fans: Corsair SP120 HP x8
Cooler Master Sickleflow 120mm x10
Fan Cont: Lamptron FC-5 V3 and Lamptron Hummer
Pump: Swiftech mcp655
Sound card: Creative ZX

"Xtreme PSU Calculator" calculated my build as 1254w at peak load and capacitor aging %20.

My Question: I have Corsair HX100w in my hand. Is it enough or should I upgrade? I am going to do mild OC.

Thanks for your answers in advance.

Dont know what you entered into that calculator but you did something wrong

That system can be power by a 600 watts PSU

HX1000 is not bad but its old and a lot of them has been dying over the past year

Its also not a true 1000 watts its two 500 watts slapped together

If you get a modern 1000 watts PSU you got room for another video card and as much OC and overvolting as you want on those two video cards

more importantly, why are you still using raptors? biggrin.gif SSD beats it in every possible way these days smile.gif i bet it takes a long time for your bios to get past post biggrin.gif

And 8 of them daaaam

1 TB in 250´s and 1,2 TB in 300´s

Why not 2x 1 TB Samsung 840 Evo´s?

Found the problem you used capacitor aging

Unless its an el cheapo PSU from 1999 you dont need to use capacitor aging

I was about to say the exact same thing. What are you storing that you think you need 10K drives for?

That's the most squirrely collection of storage devices I've ever seen proposed on a modern build. I'd love to know the purpose of those 8 Raptors, and 6 medium sized SSDs.

Note to OP - the performance of the 2720SGL is pretty poor if you're going to use it for RAID 5, 6, or 50. If you're using it for RAID 0, 10, or JBOD it should be OK. There's no cache, and very weak parity calculation on that particular board.

Ditto. Pick up a good 3ware or LSI Logic board. Depending on what you're trying to store you probably don't even need all that 10K... Probably can get away with SSDS or WD Black/RE4 drives.

even more importantly, what case do you own that holds 16 drives?

To answer OP's question your HX1000 is more then enough, that system needs around 850w which will allow for overclocks comfortably too, As already pointed out the HX1000 is aging, and its put together like twin 500w units, i would not buy one today if you don't own it already.

Also pretty much every PSU calculator ive seen online, is in some way sponsored by a PSU manufacturer and greatly exaggerates power usage to sell more expensive units.

Thanks all for your answers. Most of you asked for the raptors, they are all from my old builds and I want to bring them together. For my question my psu is enough and I should not change it right?

1. You really want to use old HDDs in RAID which are expensive and bad choice of judgement to replace if you have a disk faliure?

2. You know that's not a very good RAID card right? There's no RAID cache on it so it's going to suck for certain RAID types.

3. Yes, that PSU is 'alright' but not great.

4. What case do you have?
