So here is my potential system
Intel i7-8700k (would like the capability to slightly overclock and turbo to near 5ghz) Corsair H80iGT Gigabyte z370N Wifi mini ITX motherboard 2 16GB sticks of DDR4 1 HHD 7200rpm 1 SSD around 250GB Geforce GTX 1080 GB Superclocked, core clock 1708MHz, boost clock 1847 Mhz, Memory clock 10,000 MHz normal peripherals, gaming keyboard and mouse, maybe an external hard drive for video sometimes
The power supply I am considering is the COrsair SF 600W 80+ gold
The reason I need to go the SFX route is because my case is quite small so I need a thin PSU. There is a more powerful SFX-L by silverstone, but the corsair has just gotten amazing reviews. When I use outervision.com it puts my load wattage at about 485W and Recommends a PSU wattage of 533. In theory my 600W option should work right? I am worried because a lot of people say you should go 40% to 50% over what your system maxes at. I would love to just get a 700W, but then I get into space issues etc. Do you all think I will be okay with the 600W option for this setup?
Thanks for your help!!
