Seasonic 650W, enough or not enough?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
PSU calculator tells me that an overclocked 1055T (not on the drop-down list so I just selected 965 C3 and set the clocks right) + GTS 250 + all the fans I run + HDD + SDD & everything in my system requires a ~650-700W PSU (with 20-30% capacitor aging at least).
I'm worried I may be at the strangling point when it comes to my system. My Seasonic SS-650HT is a great unit, one of the first with 80+ (88% to be exact) and a base for most Corsair units, but I'm worried it might not be enough especially when CPU and GPU folding. It could run my 965 140W overclocked + GTS 250 folding full-time but because there's a bigger gap in voltage requirements between stock frequency (1.325v) and overclocked frequency (~1.475v) with this processor (compared to 1.425 stock 1.475 OC'ed on my 965), it worries me a bit.
Opinions? I could probably use my extra RAM money to get a new power supply (then sell my current to recoup so that I can still buy new RAM)

I think it's an OEM version of the S12 650W. Solid midrange unit, no reason it shouldn't power what you've got, hell a quality 500W would be plenty.

Yeah it is.

ANd you shouldn't have a problem with that particular unit. For a comparison, the TX650/HX620 are built on the same design.

Should be enough, any decent 600 watt would be fine.

Excellent now that I think of it, I shouldn't be believing that my CPU consumes an entire 100 more watts overclocked (according to that site )
