My PSU question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So i currently have a HX850 PSU.. currently running an old i7 920 OC, gtx 480 and fully custom water cooled. had this set up for about 5-6 years. no issues.

I am in the process of gathering parts for a new PC build.
I7 4790
GTX 980
2x inel SSD
1x storage
corsair H100
blur ray drive
in a corsair obsidian 250.



i like the new form factors compared to my custom antec 1200

my question is since im throwing away this system. can i at least salvage the PSU. I know the wattage is plenty but is the age questionable? or should i buy a new HX750?

such a waste to not be able to reuse something from this old MONSTER.

I dont even think i can sell the antec 1200 with the water cooling. garbage man gonna be happy.

Keep the HX850 for the new build.

It'll only be stressed at half capacity with the new parts. Kind of like being semi-retired!tongue.gif
