New PSU for R5 2600+1060 6GB - overclocked

Hi,

looking to swap my current Corsair CX600W PSU (is a quite aged and probably holding back my overclocked GPU https://www.overclock.net/forum/10-a...erclocked.html )

What wattage rating should I look for, and which make / model will you recommend?? Modular cables is not a must. Price limit some €75 Excl. VAT.
What about FSP (Fortron) PSUs?? Looks good and are cheaper than Seasonic, Corsair..

Detailed specs:

R5 2600(4.1 @ 1.35),
GTX 1060 6GB(+200, +500Mhz),
SATA SSD, SATA HDD, DVD, 6x120 fan, LED strip, card reader...
Power connected through 700VA BackUPS,

Thanks!

A good 450 watt could power that system but those are overpriced and a good 550 watt is often the same price
The Seasonic Focus and Focus Plus are a good option, as for FSP some of the Hydro series are pretty good

Give a link to site you want to order from and i will take a look and see what they have for what prices

Tomshardware has thorough PSU reviews. You can't go wrong with their recommendations. That said, I'd get at least a 550 Watt rating. Under gaming loads and CPU stress testing you'll probably pull somewhere in the 300 Watt range. If you run a CPU stress test and a GPU stress test, you'll be pulling nearly 500 watts... but that's not a realistic gaming load.

Most PSUs are most efficient around their 40-50% power rating anyways.

Keep in mind that upgrading from a mid-range GPU to a high-end GPU can easily add 100 watts to your power consumption.

A 2600 and GTX 1060 is not going to draw 500 watts even when overclocked and pushed to full load that over exaggerated

Site is https://www.alza.sk/EN/pc-power-supplies/18849164.htm

Current power draw is max at 370W(prime95+furmark - measured with cheap energy monitor), gaming max 325W.

Did you take rated the efficiency of your PSU off that number
If not the number is actually lower

Found a Hexa 85+ which from what i have seen is not terrible and its one of only two units under 75 euros that where not terrible
https://www.alza.sk/EN/fortron-hexa-85-650-d5508518.htm

The other was a HEC made Cooler Master branded unit for 5 euros more
https://www.alza.sk/EN/cooler-master...n-d5517453.htm

Edit: they also have a Seasonic M12II Evo which is old and quite loud but not bad at all
https://www.alza.sk/EN/seasonic-m12i...67083.htm?o=15

But you are much better off buying something better

Thanks,

how much will be efficiency difference, do you have some knowledge?? Old PSU is 80Plus.

If speaking of more expensive PSUs, what about Hydro GE 650? https://www.alza.sk/EN/fortron-hyper...0-d5508523.htm (theres a mistake on that site, its Hydro GE not Hyper)

The Hydro GE is not all that great from the info i found

As for your question about efficiency thats not what makes a PSU better and has nothing to do with quality and you can find junk that are rated as high as 80 plus Titanium
Those units i linked to have better voltage regulation and ripple suppression than your old CX which had mediocre voltage regulation and ripple suppression which is why it not all that good

Buying a unit with better voltage regulation and ripple suppression will give you better overclocking results and efficiency has nothing to do with that
Efficiency is just the amount of power lost when converted from power coming out of wall to power the PC uses

The old CX are uses something called group regulation which treats the 12v the 5v and 3,3v rail as one big group and that results in poor voltage regulation
Only the cheapest budget units uses group regulation in this day and age and its outdated and obsolete

Even the newest CX no longer uses it

Edit: found an EVGA B3 550 watt but the B3 series had some serious problems when it came out

I ve been asking if old PSU is taking 370W, new Plus Gold unit have to draw less power from power socket with same setup/overclock?

Will be 650W sufficient in next years for budget/mainstream gaming PC?? Like for that Seasonic with 10year warranty, if I would keep it for that long..

Some Corsair units stocking now, what about that??

Yes a PSU with higher efficiency will draw slightly less power as less is wasted, and yes a 650 watt is more than enough power for a system with a single GPU
As for the CX650M its better than what you have now but still not great and the semi modular Seasonic Focus 650 watt is only 8 euros more and thats much better
