I bought a 500W BeQuiet Straight Power 10 for my home server, thinking of lobbing in my spare 1060 and 1050Ti but is that 500W enough to run the cards at 24/7 folding levels and 8+ drives as well as 7 fans? The rest is a i5-6400 Skylake, 1 stick of El-Cheapo 8GB Corsair RAM, an Intel M.2 SSD and a H170 Gigabyte board. No overclocking, all stock.

Video cards owned:
1x Titan XP (2016)
1x GTX 1080
1x GTX 1070
1x GTX 1060
1x GTA 1050Ti
2x GTX 980Ti Strix
1x GTX 780Ti

Yes, my 3770k with 1070/970 is pulling 420W from my UPS. Those smaller, more efficient cards/CPU should be fine.
