MSI R9 390X and Corsair RM550

Do you think 550w would be enough for that GPU?, my current rig has an i5 4590, 8gb ram, 1 ssd and 1 hdd. I also plan on updating my system later maybe a r5 1400/1600, would it be still enough?


According to what i've seen the power draw at load should be around 400-450w but i'm not sure if the PSU will handle it.

My mods:
Corsair 300R Brushed Metal [MOD]
WoodBox [Scratch Build]
Dell Optiplex 170L 2.0 [MOD]

Don't go lower than R5 1600, else it's lost performance. For i5 4690k @4.8GHz 1.36V and 290X @1150/1625 1.289V I had to buy a 650W else my previous Chieftec GPS-550 (I think it was this unit) kept shutting down when explosions happened in MGS V . Not sure if it was because of power spikes (290X can take around 350-380W in power spike) or actually a bad PSU. You should be fine but once you start overclocking you can get past 500W with Ryzen 1600.

You wont get past 500watts of power draw with any of the ryzen chips. MAYBE on threadripper and fancy cooling.


OP, I would recommend a single rail power supply that can do at least 650 watts. You always want some headroom.


You also want a BETTER power supply.


That corsair only allows you EITHER 4+4 cpu power and a single 6+2 PCIE power, or 2x PCIE 6+2 plugs with no cpu power. It is also rated for its power ONLY at 40*C, which means you would need to keep airflow around that PSU to keep it healthy with a high load.


Find a newer corsair or EVGA power supply that can support dual CPU power plugs (lots of motherboards have 8+4 pin cpu power anyways) and should ALSO support 2x or 4x PCIE 6+2 power.




That RM550 would be good for a low power single PCIE power plug video card and minimal cpu overclocking.




My older EVGA 850watt Supernova G2 would be a great choice, you can still find them brand new online, and it has ran my power hungry computer very well for quite some time.

Over 500W as a whole platform. Sorry I thought it's obvious what I meant...

My mistake. That makes a lot more sense.


But even my 1080TI plus FX9590 OC'd rig barely makes it over the 500watt mark.


Ryzen chips will use less than 150 for the cpu itself at 4ghz or so, the big power draw will be from his 390X
