MBd(s): Asus Crossblade Ranger, A88X-Pro
Video Card: evga 9800 GT GeForce 1GB DDR3 (Req's 450 W PSU)
CPU: Athlon X4 860K; I'd like to get the 760K as well. Likely to go with a newer Athlon X4 too.
DDR3 RAM: 1600 MHz (not purchased yet)
Mid Tower Case: I'll start with a used one here at the house. I do not know if it will have adequate airflow. If not, I'll modify it or buy one that does.

Edit - Initially, I am only concerned with overclocking the CPU. The EVGA SuperNova G2 650 is a more than I need but, Shilka likes it

https://www.overclock.net/t/1575991/600-650-watts-comparison-thread-fully-modular

It might be nice to spend less but, this is clearly quality!


To date, I have been referred to Seasonic and the Rosewill Capstone units. My primary concern is sizing the PSU for overclocking. Quiet fan(s) and modular are desirable.

 

PSU requirements are always made for what the +12V capacity would be (the 12-volt output capacity). These requirements are also made for peak-rated PSUs, and so the typical 450W peak-rated PSU would have a +12V capacity of about 324W, or 27A. ;)

 

A good quality-made 450W PSU (which would also be a continuous-rated PSU) would have a +12V capacity of 444W, or 37A. So yeah, you might be getting the idea here that the advertised capacity of a PSU is only a small part of the picture.

 

What store(s) can you order from. Like, can I find some PSUs to recommend using PCPartPicker.com?

I migrated my activity here:

https://www.overclock.net/t/1552710/best-500-550w-psu

as it is more sensible for me to consider smaller PSU thoroughly.


I may end up ordering that EVGA SuperNova G2 650 but, I should be exhaustive in my effort to disprove my ability to use something smaller. I do not see myself becoming a gamer needing two high-end video cards. I am interested in coding in gpgpu/CUDA for technical reasons. It is too early to tell at this time what the end result will be but, I do not mind giving consideration to a "slightly" oversized PSU for the next video card I buy but, qualitative planning does not get more vague than this! I just need to ensure I start well.

I can buy anywhere since, I do not mind mail order. I am even willing to buy used. Mail order can be quite convenient. There is a Micro Center within 1 h of my home.

But that's not your thread. The PSU Calc Final Release isn't your thread either, but at least it's more acceptable to use a thread like this as though it's a mini forum.

 

A 650W G2 would not be "slightly" overkill. It's major overkill.

Does shilka have a 500W-550W comparison thread?

Sig's kind of broke a little. It's okay, I needed to update it anyway XD

How come PSU Calc isn't a thing anymore?

I think the people behind it are way too busy for things like this.

That's quite unfortunate. It was the only useful PSU calculator I've ever seen. Too bad OCN wouldn't be interested in buying the IP and maintaining the tool. That would really improve exposure, traffic, and birth indirect and direct revenue to the site,
