Ah, okay. Should turbo be safe to use or should I just keep it disabled?the i7-7700 is but a 65W TDP CPU...and per Nvidia, the 1060 (6 GB) is a 120 watt peak card...(Nvidia recommends minimum 400 watt PSU)
As you have a discrete GPU in the GTX1060 class, a 500-600 watt is more than fine...(I like having PSUs running at only 50-60% of rated capacity, truth be told)
https://www.tomshardware.com/news/seasonic-focus-plus-psu-compatibility-issues,38105.htmlIf you are wanting a new PSU the Seasonic Focus Plus Gold or Focus Gold at 550W would be a very good choice.
This.Now, a better PSU might potentially handle failure better, and could possibly reduce the chances other hardware getting damaged in the event of the unit failing, but it shouldn't be a requirement as far as running these components to their full potential is concerned.
We say so because the last thing we would want is for you to pay this money anyway, for it to damage other components, getting a good quality PSU means you can rest knowing the PSU should work for the next few years without issue. And it really does pay to save and get a good quality unit. It's your system we care about, it seems irritating I know and I hope this is read with the sincerity I intend, I just would never want you to suffer damaging your own system, as we see it all too often“Despite whatever money you save on a cheap PSU now, it will cost you more when it fails later”
He's asking if there's a way to know if the OEM is Great Wall or CWT by looking at an internet listing of the PSU (as opposed to looking at the PSU itself).Yes that's the correct 2017 version Corsair CX model.
There is, but not before purchasing. One reason I'm not as high on the CX as some. I like to know what I am getting.i was just going to order some cx series 450w , i can see this is made by two different manufacturers. Any way to tell them apart ? sorry for hijacking
