G1 980ti with CS750M?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I currently have an x79 rig with a G1 980ti at my place but its huge and the other half wouldnt let me have it at hers so i bought a new rig with a 390 and a cs750m but i feel my ti is getting wasted so i was wondering would a cs750m be okay for it?

It will be housed with a 6700k, gigabyte z170sli mobo, 1hdd, 1 ssd and 16gb ram.

I currently have it oced but wouldnt bother as i dont want to put too much pressure on the psu as i have read mixed things about it.

Thank you.

Yea, I wouldn't see why it wouldn't work? Just make sure you uninstall the AMD drivers first, then pull AMD card, then NVidia in board, hook'er up and install the driver and you'll be good. Don't see an issue at all. plenty of power

from what i read the power was fine, it was because it was a tier 3 psu which arent designed for high end systems

Interesting. I hadn't heard that one lol. I mean PSU is GOLD certed and a 980Ti gets great performance. Ive had my 850w PSU for a way long time, pushing it to death and never had any issues, older than yours lol, you should be perfectly fine smile.gif

Yes, that power supply will be okay as you will be drawing around half or less than 750w. That being said, this is an entry-level PSU and reflects that in its build quality - it is poor. It should not be trusted to pull its rated wattage for any amount of time; it's ripple (which can affect overclocks and general component lifetime) is very poor; its hold-up time fails ATX specification, meaning that if you have a power-outage you are significantly more likely to lose data than with a better PSU; finally it uses cheap capacitors that will reduce the lifespan of the PSU.

Info was found from this review: https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Corsair/CS650M/1.html

Treat this as a temporary PSU, and when you have the money to spare, buy a better PSU, like the EVGA G2 750 or 850W, or a higher model of corsair PSU, or really a large quantity of PSUs out there. @shilka has many good suggestions for PSUs, go check out his threads for more info.

cheers everybody. I have a hx1050 in my main rig but dont wanna rip it apart to swap psus cause itll be a pain. i noticed the rm series are higher rated but im sure i read they were crap when getting a psu but must of read wrong and my dad had an evga that was faulty so went with a cs750m and slightly regret it now. i was about to pull the trigger on an ax860 but was double the price at the time, knew i should have.

PSUs are one of the trickiest components to get right. As an example, I used to have the AX 860 model you say you nearly bought. It is a very good PSU from all technical viewpoints, but every unit I tried (I went through several via replacements) had very loud coil whine (a buzzing noise at a different pitch to other computer noises) that I could hear constantly, even when my computer was idling.

The noise was loud enough for me to replace my PSU with a different model because of it. So you can see how even a completely solid PSU can have issues that render it unusable to certain people. I do not know how quiet you like your computer to be/how perceptible to high pitch noises you are, but I would actually recommend against that power supply.

As for RM series PSUs, take a look at this thread: http://www.overclock.net/t/1455892/why-you-might-not-want-to-buy-a-corsair-rm-psu

EDIT

Just in case you're wondering if there's anything bad with the HX1050 - not to my knowledge tongue.gif that one is okay as far as I know!

If you were to buy the AX 860 you would actually be following in my first steps of PSU buying exactly. I bought the CS750M, then replaced it with the AX860. After not being able to get over the coil whine, I ended up getting the G2 850w, which is the best PSU I have ever used. Would still be using it if it wasn't too big for my current rig. If you listen to this advice now, it might save you at least one unnecessary PSU purchase. Learn from my mistakes biggrin.gif

ah i see, thank you. That is actually a thread i read (so i did read right) when looking at the rm series. I believe the evgas are made by superflower which is the best of the best isnt it? Will have to look into one of those. My main rig is like a jet engine so deosnt bother me but the one at my gfs does cause she moans about it lol.
