lol easily,

I was running the HX650 with my [email protected] + GTX570 +GTX275 6 case fans, my H50 and 6 gb of memory.

It's an epic PSU and you'll be fine

The only reason I replaced it is because I wasn't sure if it would cope with SLi 570's + GTX275 physx and a custom water loop with a 6 push/pull fan setup on the rad.

... um, no.

The 650 is suitable for Sli GTX570's at stock.

I say it would work no oc on gpus most likely. All I would do is try it. And test it non oc'd with "occt" power supply test. If it can do that for 10 mins without rebooting I would say your good.

If the OP has a UPS with software, or watt meter, they can measure how much the system pulls from the wall. I'm going to say the 650 will handle the setup in question just fine. Really.

As an example, look in my profile, you'll see a system called "Tricorder." That's powered by a TX650V2, and pulls a little over 300 watts in a usual encoding spurt, or game. That is from the wall. If I slapped in another 5850 I'd be around the same power use, and have no doubts the 650 will hold it...yet it isn't the HX (which is supposed to be better).

I don't know if he made a typo or not but either way it would be correct, a 650W is fine for a pair of 570s.

Actually the TX650V2 is a better unit than the HX650, with the obvious downside that it's not modular.

It wasn't a typo and yes whilst a 650w PSU can handle SLi, I wouldn't make a habit of it. Since the HX650 is such a high quality PSU it would manage it, if you were talking about a generic peice of crap then probably not.

Matter of opinion there. I much prefer hard-wired connections; less chance for heat, resistance, or electrical noise.

No, really, the TX650V2 is a better unit than the HX650. Different guts, too.

I get what you're saying, but really the amount of resistance added by the modularity is tiny, and with all the awesome modular units available with extremely low ripple, I think that's also a non-issue

I think this is what you guys are talking about.

Quote:


TX series (stop-gap)
Enthusiast mid-range units, fixed cables, rated at 40C, Japanese caps, 80+, 5 year warranty. These power supplies replaced the original TX line in approx. Q3 2010. They perform slightly better, but there are questions about build quality.

TX650-C - CWT PSHII
TX750-C - CWT PSHII
TX850-C - CWT PSHII

(Some reports of alternate variations, unconfirmed)

TX v2 series
Upper-mid-range enthusiast units, fixed cables, rated at 50C, 80+ Bronze, 5 year warranty

TXv2 650W - SeaSonic
TXv2 750W - SeaSonic
TXv2 850W - SeaSonic
