Guys, greetings from Bangladesh.
Let me share my current configuration first;
  • Motherboard: Z370 TUF Plus Gaming
  • Processor: 8600K @ 4.6~4.7 GHz
  • CPU Cooler: Cooler Master V8 GTS
  • RAM: 2x 8GB GSKILL Ripjaws V (2400MHz)
  • Storage: 1x 500 GB Micron SATA SSD and 2x 2TB WD Blue 7.2K RPM HDD
  • Graphics Card: Gigabyte G1 GTX 970
  • Case: Cooler Master H500P
  • Case Fan: 2x 200mm RGB Fan, 1x 140mm RGB Fan and 1x 140mm Non RGB Fan
  • Power Supply: Cooler Master MWE Gold 650W
Now I am planning to upgrade some parts;

  • CPU Cooler: I will replace it with an 240L or 280L AIO liquid cooler
  • Graphics Card: RTX 2070 Super (ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER O8G or AORUS GeForce® RTX 2070 SUPER™ 8G)
Now the big question is, can my PSU (650W) can handle these changes?

Please assist me, and accept my apology for bad English ☹

Minimum recommendation for an RTX2080 is 550w, the FE is 600w. There's no way a 2070, even the super version, will require more. You might add another 50-100w for OC and the uber duper OC version of the super, but even then, that's only 650w on a pc that'll pull only @ 400w or so gaming.

Many psu vendors will bump up wattage recommendations simply due to their knowledge that their psu isn't all that great, so a larger wattage is better off than what's necessarily needed.

Gpu vendors will recommend a higher wattage simply because of the sheer amount of junk psus readily available in ppl's pc's, and will probably need the higher wattage units just for the available connections. Psus are most definitely not created equal.

Yes, it's sufficiently large enough, a 550w would do.
Liquid cooler doesn't matter, only a few watts for pump, less than 12w.

Don't worry about apologies for bad English, or I'd feel shame for not even knowing any of your native language.
