ok, I'm smack dab in the middle of getting parts togeather for my sig rig update. and I'm stuck at the PSU part. After update's my sig rig will look somthing like this:

CPU: right now [email protected] untill BD gets the quirks worked out, then I want an 8 core BD chip with a fat 24/7 OC. if BD is a total fail I'll be looking into a 1090t @4.0
Mobo: Gigabyte 990FXA-Ud3 revision 1.0(I have already bought this)
Ram: looking at G.Skill 2x4 gig(8 total) kits, 1.5v...might have a minor OC if any at all.
Storage: Crucial M4 64 gig SSD for OS and 2x F3 1 TB drive's short stroked and in RAID0 along with my F4 2 TB drive untill my home server is built.
GPU: for now I plan to use my 1 gig 460 GTX, but I plan to jump to CF 6970's very soon...very soon. they will be OC'd.
cooling: Custom water loop. it will have 3 rad's(1xRS240, 1xRX240, 1x RX120) and both GPU's and the CPU will be under water, the mobo might be water cooled but I dont know at this time. the pump will be one of the two: mpc35x OR 655(both with the PWM hook up.) lastly I plan to use an Aquacomputer (the one without the display.)
Fan's: GEILD wing 12 blue PWM fans. a total of 9 minimum, maby as many as 16 If i go push pull.

I need a PSU that will handle all of that lol. to top it all off I can only use a PSU with a max length of 160mm. I was thinking of using the Corsair TX-850 watt. I know it will handle everything its the bulldozer chip that has me lost. would I be safe with BD and all that other crap hooked up to my sig rig? Thank you guys SOOO much in advance!

The TX850 would be fine and safe, yeah. Although, I'm personally hoping that you mean the TX850 "V2" because it's a superior unit.

Anyway, how much money can you spend on the PSU?

I will spend what ever I have to, but would like to keep it as cheap as possible while still getting a rock solid PSU. I know if a PSU fails it can take out what ever its plugged into, so I'll use what ever I have to, but it HAS to be 160mm or shorter, or it will conflict with the RX240 rad in the bottom of the case.

EDIT: yes i did mean to put the TX-850 V2 lol

Alright the TX850 will be fine. For BD though if you want to overclock the 8150 you're gonna want 1000+w. That alone can pull 425w from the PSU.

Even PSUs like the original TX850 are very safe:

However, I think that a quality 850W power supply is a bit overkill, so getting a quality 750W unit can allow you to spend a little less money.

If you're interested in doing that, then here are the 750W PSUs I recommend:

First off, "I love you man!" second off, you think a 750w will handle all that stuff, and give me enough head room for an OC'ed BD chip? they seem power hungry!

I don't know yet. So either I should wait for those who do, or I can compile a new 850W list...

You have given me enough info for the time being! Thank you for the offer of an 850 PSU list though, your assistance means alot to me. I guess I'll have to hold off one getting a PSU untill we know more about BD's power consumption, but it looks like it needs alot of juice to keep it going from what I can tell. Thank you so much TwoCables!

You're welcome!

If this is the case, then I'm going to do something that I don't like seeing other people do: I'm going to recommend an 850W "just in case", or "just to be safe". I prefer to know rather than guess, but I'll make an exception here and create a list of 850W power supplies that I know are safe. I just can't rest until I do this.


There were a couple I skipped because I don't know much about them yet.


Anyway, I can relax now.

Words can not express how amazing you are TwoCables! So +rep will have to do! I'm in the middle of staggering my upgrade's and I know I'm ordering new RAM and a new copy of windows7 tomorrow(my current is OEM locked to my sig rig board, the current board and win7 is getting passed to my wife's rig). So I might pick up the PSU tomorrow just for giggles! Thank you so much!

Nice! I'm glad to see you're not spending more for Pro or Ultimate.
