asus strix gtx 970

dont worry then, 650w is more than enough and corsair is a good brand
2016-04-17 20:31
Wattage isn't the only thing you want to look at in a PSU. Some of Corsair's higher end PSU's are fine, yeah, but that's the RMi series or above. The VS series is the entry-level PSU's from Corsair, and they just aren't made for GTX 970's and overclocking i7 4790k's - "VS Series PSUs are a great choice if you’re building a home or office system with lower power demands"
2016-04-17 20:48
still, his psu is good enough even tho its basically the cheapest corsair psu the quality is enough to oc a little bit. Its not that hes going to try to break oc records with his pc anyways
2016-04-17 20:53
The PSU isn't even made for his system when not overclocking.
2016-04-17 21:01
alright m8 im not even going to bother anymore since you probably think if you dont have a $600 80+ titanium psu you cant overclock not even a bit
2016-04-17 21:11
Sure you can with a proper PSU. But overclocking a 330€-ish CPU with a PSU made for basic office use is just plain retarded.
2016-04-17 21:15
650W is more then enough to overclock your 4790K, unless you have a crossfire/ SLI setup but im guessing thats not the case. Don't expect increase while overclocking a 4790K, most of them are pretty close to their limit on the turbo modus.

yeah but it isnt gold,bronze or anything like that.. its the cheapest 650w that i could find
2016-04-17 20:22
Ah okay, but i still wouldn't worry about it. Your setup withouth overclocking would maybe use 250-350W max, if you overclock you take some more Watts but not enough to push the PSU to any sort of limit.
2016-04-17 20:25
i just hope that the psu will not explode
2016-04-17 20:26
If at all possible, replace the PSU before you overclock that system. That PSU isn't made for what you're using it for (and certainly not what you intend to use it for).
2016-04-17 20:50
maybe ill just run the 4.4ghz turbo
2016-04-17 21:12
Just don't. It is already running at 4,4ghz and that is way more than enough. You don't get much out of the overclock either.

it's a good psu, don't worrie about it failing. just make sure it's enough for your overclocking.
2016-04-17 20:45
It's a shit PSU for what he wants to use it for.
2016-04-17 21:03
Iceland fatboislim 
what do you mean?
2016-04-17 21:06
That the Corsair VS series is not made for overclocking a higher end system. It's made for basic home/office use. Of all the PSU's he could pick, he should probably be most worried about this exact PSU failing.
2016-04-17 21:07

you kidding right? do you even know what you're talking about?
2016-04-17 21:08
he doesn't
2016-04-17 21:09
Yes. Anyone with half a clue about building will say the same. Lower end Corsair PSU's are not made for systems with 970's and i7 4790K's. Even Corsair themselves agree (LOL), so I must ask you: do YOU know what you're talking about?
2016-04-17 21:10

Riiiight, explain why and link for the corsair statement. You seem to have a clue so let's hear it.
2016-04-17 21:14 ??? Did you even bother reading what the manufacturer says about their own units before spreading misinformation? As I told fnatic fanboy, overclocking a 330€ CPU with a PSU made for basic office use is not a great idea. Even you should be able to see that.

where does it say it's not good for the op's rig? rofl and i use the common sense and some knowledge. the 970 requires 28amp on the +12v rail and that psu delivers 50amps. Also i calculated op's rig with worse case scenario options and that psu is an overkill for his rig. And also his pc is a HOME pc. Now tell my why you think it's a bad psu.
2016-04-17 21:25
A home PC in this regard is a PC used for browsing, e-mails, Word, light Excel etc. Even though it's a 650w PSU, the build quality is so awful that around 300-350w load, the voltage will roam around 11.5-12.5, which will be a threat to your hardware or cause random shutdowns. Read any proper review of the VS series and you'll see why it's bad. Even the CX line isn't recommended for a system like OP's, and that's a far better line than the VS. With OP's system in mind, having a PSU from the worst tier on the market is just crazy. So much €€€ hardware depending on an ultralow quality unit.
