Hello,
I have been using a Thermaltek Litepower 550w PSU for about more than 3 years without an issu. Now i'm about to buy an XFX RX 580 *GB GTRS Crimson Edition. Will it run in this PSU without any issue?
Also, I wan t to know about the temperature performance of the GPU XFX RX 580 8GB Crimson Edition. Is this GPU has a noticable overheating issue?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forums my friend!

Yes it will be enough to run it.

However - the downfall is the Litepower series are very poor quality. So it's not a unit I would personally use with a newer GPU. So the "without issue" is the bit you can never guarantee, poor quality power supplies can cause all manner of problems once they start malfunctioning.

Is this GPU has a noticable overheating issue?
This is largely dependant on your local environment and system. It can easily sit around 70/75 degrees under heavier loads, depending on your ambient temps.

Regardless, the PSU is not good quality, and the last thing we'd want you to do is buy a new GPU and have your original PSU damage it or cause instability.

So you have manged to get lucky for 3 years, I wouldn't continue to press your luck and buy a decent PSU.

According to reviews that model does tend to run hot so make sure you have good airflow in the case.
If i buy a good case will it be okay? Suggest me a good casing under $30 please. :)
