Not sure if I got a faulty unit. I built a PC with Ryzen 3900x and Gigabyte Rtx 2080 Super along with this PSU. And it failed me after 3 days. My PC shuts down whenever I login to windows and randomly when I open a exe file. After swapping new motherboard, new Ram, new graphics card, i found the problem is with PSU. And I use thermaltake 850W 80+ and now everything is good so far.

its not because of the psu, the psu is good, but it doesnt have enough volts to power that cpu and graphics, its like a mouse is pushing a steel cube, just doesnt work out.

A 750w PSU is more than enough for a 3900x which itself will never really get over 150w, and an RTX 2080 super, but back to the theme I have the ROG Thor 850w and it is the best PSU I ever had in my 25 years having a PC. Asus is not cheap in any facet of hardware but the quality of their components is some of the best out there.

Hi all! I just bought a bunch of ROG parts and got the THOR 850W PS. I've been seeing some similar builds out there and some say if you OC the CPU, it might get a little tight on wattage. Could you please share what you all think is a safe amount of overhead? I haven't decided on how far I want to go on overclocking yet. Here's the current list and estimated wattage...
