Wattage Conerns with (first) Custom Loop

  • 40 months ago

Hello everyone, and thank you for your time. So I am working on a slightly overkill build and will be doing my first custom loop (cpu only). My conern is that the build is already sitting at 600w estimated draw and it is not accounting for overclocking (looking for 4.0-4.4ghz), the water pump (1), rgb/controlling units, and my plans to add the EVGA hybrid water cooler to the Titan. I already purchased the PSU however and am just looking for an estimate on power draw from the other components. I'd like atleast a 50w overhead so will exchange/upgrade if need to.

750 watts will be more then enough. In typical load you will rarely be going over 450 watts, stress tests few peaks into possibly high 500's if your happening to be doing a heavy AVX synthetic stress test with the GPU being hammered in another stress test. For that setup a 750 watts will have plenty of headroom.

600 watts estimate sounds extremely high calculation for the components you have chosen without overclocking.

I didn't even think about it that way. For my tasks the computer will never be pegged full usage so thats perfect. Thank you
