QUESTION: I have an evga supernova 650W platinum, is this enough? processor is a 6700k overclocked to 4500Mhz, 32gb of ram overclocked to 3000Mhz.




You should be ok with it tbh but I wouldn't go hard on OCing with it. 
 
Will you have a boat load of things connected to the PC like multiple HDs, SSDs, M.2s, fans up the wazoo, RGBs everywhere, custom liquid cooling, etc?  If not, I still think 650w will be ok but you're cutting it close for OCing headroom in case you do some benchmarking and stuff when you completely forget you have a 650w PSU.  If you're not into all of that, you should be fine with your current PSU and a 2080 Ti FTW3.  Plus, most reputed PSU companies have protections in place so the worst thing that can happen is the PC shutting down, not to mention it's a EVGA PSU you have at your presence so you're good no matter what. 




thanks for your reply. my system is very simple compared to what I see online, I do not really care about the rgb, etc.
 
I have:
 
- Intel i7 6700K overclocked to 4500MHz @ 1.27V (it goes higher but it makes noise so I kept it like that. never seen it consume more than 100W according to HWInfo software)
- Noctua NH-D15 cooler for the processor, stock fan curve
- Asus Z170-A motherboard
- 32 Gb Corsair Vengeance overclocked to 3000 MHz
- 2 Samsung SSD's (1 850Evo 120Gb + 1 860Evo 1Tb)
- 1 Western Digital 1Tb HDD Caviar Blue
- 1 Fractal Define R5 case with 2 fans (stock fan curve)
- 1 Pioneer BDR209DBK blu ray drive
- 2 Noctua NF-S14A ULN fans (stock fan curve)
- 1 Noctua NF-S14A FLX (stock fan curve)
- 1 USB bluetooth (like a pen drive)
- 1 USB receiver for my wireless keyboard and mouse
- 1 USB receiver for my Steam controller
- other USB's are used to connect my fanatec wheel and pedals, charge phone, etc etc).
- 1 EVGA SuperNova P2 650W Platinum
 
Maybe I should buy one of those little devices that measure the draw from the wall? how to these are called?
 
 




I knew I left something out from my last post but yes, you should grab those Kill-A-Watt as I have one for each of my two systems with just the PSU plugged into them.  That should give you an idea how close you are and how much headroom you have.  
 
Overall tbh, your system looks fine for a 650w.  If you get the meter and you seem to be close in your biggest loads, than yes try going with something higher.   Many recommend higher because a lot of folks here game and bench hard so some can easily surpass 650w with flying colors. lol




thanks, will do. it is like you say, I test my system to see how much it really draws from the wall, if needed I can always upgrade the psu! and this little device comes in handy to check other electronics also. cheers!

these issues seems to appear online on a daily basis. 
 
is the root cause for these problems figured out to this date? I have been waiting for a long time for a 2080 ti or a 2080 card and I am getting out of patience already but would like to know for sure before committing to a purchase. one thing is certain, will be a ftw 3.


It has nothing to do with the memory, if that’s what you’re getting at. Even when they were first publicized as failing, Gamers Nexus found that the memory had no impact on whether or not the card would fail. It’s some kind of PCB defect and the percentage of failure is way lower than it might seem.

Personally I believe that many of them are due to user error. Not using an adequate power supply, etc.

But who knows.


Edit: a PCB defect that eventually causes the memory to degrade and fail.

What I've been told from a developer I trust, has to do with the PCB's memory VRM traces. They told me that the founder's edition cooler applies excessive pressure to the memory VRM and during thermal cycles it causes the PCB to flex, resulting in the traces cracking over time.

I see, so this was an engineering/design problem on nvidia..

I've had the RTX 2080ti for a short time and no issues so far. Gaming seems very good. The RTX 2080ti has a high price but it does have the best performance.

Of course they work out of the box, the issue is, will it last longer than 9 months? I haven't seen a single person claim to have had a 2080ti survive that long.

I originally got my 2080 Ti XC Ultra six months ago, and it worked incredibly until this month.  Now artifacts and hard-crashes.  I've RMA'd it once, and the replacement card does the same thing.  I don't know what the deal with this specific GPU is, but it seems to have some sort of compatibility issue.  The PSU is 850W and the rail the GPU uses is fine, and is currently running my backup 1660 Ti.  No OC was ever applied, just straight out-of-the-box.
 
Not fun to troubleshoot.  I really just feel like I'm out $1200.

I had initial problems with my GTX 2080TI Black (had 2 RMA's) but thank goodness I chose EVGA. They stood up to the plate and I now have an EXCELLENT gpu that has been problem free.

I've had mine since ...last October? Early November?

I've had zero issues.
 
and even if I do, I have the 10 year warranty. I'm not concerned.
 
Stop worrying about it....most people who have the cards don't have an issue....you ONLY hear about the bad things..there are FAR more out there with zero issues than you'll ever hear about.

I got mine when they released last October and it's still going strong. EVGA 2080 Ti FTW3 ultra with Micron memory.

It's reassuring to at least hear one person say their's has survived.

You are horribly biased by individuals that had bad experiences then.

Mine died well under 9 months of use, 7 months to be exact. And I have been very easy with my card and run it at 100% fan when gaming.
 
I bought this card in when it first released last year but did not install and use it until after CES when they released the z390dark board.

Btw, how many people  have you talked to? How many have purchased the card? I'm betting you've talked to 100 tops...and THOUSANDS of cards were sold. so yeah...your sample is sucky.
