It has plenty of power for a 2070 super build assuming you don't have some insanely power hungry CPU, it's just not a very high quality unit. Personally I wouldn't have a problem powering it short term with that PSU.

Should hint as well, seeing your current psu is semi modular. Any modular cable used to power components will have to be replaced with Corsair's own cables.

Modular cables seem convenient and wish they were but sadly not and many people have fried parts because of it. The industry isn't uniformed and power/ground wires and how they're connected aren't always positioned the same so best keep to the original cables psu's come with.

Remove old cables. Only use cables the Corsair psu comes with. Cables powering drives, gpu, motherboard and cpu, any cable you physically plug into the psu (modular), replace those with the new cables.
Ill replace everything of course my only problem was if i could put the gpu with my old thermaltake psu until the new one comes.Thnx for the help

You're welcome.

Yeah, as said previously, your current psu will do the job. Was just giving extra advice is all. You'd be surprised how many people make the mistake mixing psu cables and destroying their computer. Didn't want that happening to you so thought to mention it before the new psu arrives.
