Hi guys,
I am looking at getting a new PSU and have gotten mixed results on PSU calculators. My system is as follows:
ASRock X570 Taichi
Ryzen 3600XT
H105 Extreme Cooler on CPU
Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB 3600Mhz(2x16GB)
EVGA Black Edition GTX 1080ti @ 1982Mhz
Corsair Hydro X XD5 pump with RX240 Radiator on the GPU
1x BDROM Drive
3x NVMe SSD 500GB, 512GB, 1TB
1x SATA SSD 512GB
2x WD Black 7200RPM HDD
6x 120mm PWM Fans
2x 120mm PWM LED Fans
1x 140mm PWM LED Fan
Gaming Mouse
Standard Keyboard
5 speaker sound system from Logitech

MY current PSU is getting a bit old and I don't think I need it as it is a 1300w PSU. The PSU Calculators I have used have given me a range of 750w to 1000w PSU. Any Help would be great!

Your system can easily run on a high quality 650-750 watt PSU. Here's a few choice picks-

No. EVGA ended their partnership with Super Flower which gave us some of the best power supplies EVGA ever released. Luckily Super Flower are now available in the states as you can see by this link. It happens to be on sale right now for a great price.

Dang! My 1300w was an EVGA G2 which was great for its time. I have been having issues with random power losses to my system which is why I want to move on to a new PSU as I have checked all my hardware and have not found any issues. Hoping that the PSU is the culprit and a new one will stop the issues from persisting. Sad to see that the EVGA PSU's aren't as good any more..

No problem. Your biggest problem will be keeping it cool enough to reach that goal. Here's a short article on OC 3600XT.
https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/amd-ryzen-5-3600xt-review,27.html
With my current cooler, my CPU hits 65C when it clocks all cores to 4450 under stock conditions. I was just hoping to lock in that clock speed and keep it there. noticing that what HWMonitor lists as the "CPU Package" is getting up to 70C+ at times though. I don't feel like I really need to overclock anyway, I can just leave it where it is and be happy as long as it runs stable.

Exactly. That was the point made in the article I linked at Guru3D.

" Leave the processor at default we'd say as three cores already can reach 4630 Mhz all by themselves "

The G2 is a Super Flower made unit. One of the best around. Like anything they will eventually wear out.

If I RMA the PSU, do you think the replacement will still be SuperFlower? Or probably replaced with a newer PSU altogether? That G2 has a 10 year warranty and EVGA has always been good to me in the past.

If I am having intermittent power drops, what is the best way to test or check my PSU to see if that it the culprit? It seems like it would be hard to test unless I drop in a new PSU and see if the issue persists. Thanks for all the good info!
