Jacob just announced that the FTW3 has a much higher power limit and will draw up to 373W. Who else might need a new PSU? Will 650W be enough?

    IMO no. If you are getting a FTW3 I imagine that you will be pushing the GPU and have O/Ced CPU too? You really ought to get a beefier PSU. But I suppose to can try and find out seeing as you already have the PSU.

    Think 1: EVGA X99 Micro2 ¦ i7-5820K ¦ Kingston DDR4 2400 MHz 13-13-13-35 ¦ EVGA GTX 980 Ti SC ACX 2.0+ ¦ Samsung SM951 256GB ¦ RM1000i ¦ Dell UP2715K ¦ Caselabs Mercury S5 ¦ Single custom watercooling loop with Hardware Labs GTS 360 and GTS 240 and twin D5 pumps
     
    Think 2: EVGA X299 Dark ¦ i7-7800X ¦ G.Skill DDR4 3200 MHz 14-14-14-34 ¦ EVGA RTX 2080 Ti XC Gaming ¦ 2x Samsung 970 Evo 2TB ¦ EVGA SuperNOVA P2 1200 ¦ Dell UP2715K ¦ Caselabs Magnum SMA8/A ¦ Twin custom water-cooling loops with Hardware Labs GTX 560 and GTS 480 with D5 pumps and Aquaero 6 XT control

    Nice!  Looking forward to seeing the OC's you guys picking up the FTW3 can achieve.

    EVGA is having a large sale of power supplies in the USA. I just looked at a 850 watt EVGA PSU and once placed into the checkout cart the price was 99 dollars.

    Specs: AMD Ryzen 9 3950X,  Corsair MP600 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero,  Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2080ti Black

    A semi-modular 1000 watt in the checkout cart was 119 dollars.

    Yeah I got a 1000w Corsair Modular about 5 years ago when I did my current build.
    Doing a new build here hopefully before end of year, and debating a new power supply.
    EVGA sale looks tempting.

    Don‘t worry guys. Even 600W is more than enough if its not from china.

    600W probably won't be enough if next-gen CPU is overclocked too.
    And all EVGA's power supplies are from China though.

    I've seen a few FE 2080Ti reviews where total (maximum) system power draw is between 500 - 600 Watts, this obviously depends on system to system. I think a 650W PSU would be enough, but only just, and would not be running anywhere near peak efficiency.

    What he means is a unheard of no-brand and or knock off PSU.  Stay away like the plague because I learned my lesson around 15 years ago when the cheap PSU I purchased for $20 on ebay started smoking while the PC was still running and than all of a sudden everything went blank.  Luckily I knew everything survived once I installed a quality PSU from a known brand.

    You know what I mean. 50$ 1000W PSU... I have a 550W with 8700K @ 5,2 GHz and 1080 @ 2 GHz drawing 450W peak. Don't think that the 2080Ti will need 200W more.

    Can we get a 2080Ti XC Ultra bios with a 140% power limit? The design looks like it can handle that no problem. In the old days I'd just mod the bios myself, but I don't know what the status of bios-modding current cards is. Still possible?


    The FTW3 has more vrms. Also EVGA is most likely also limited by Nvidia on what they are allowed to do with the reference pcb.
     
     
    Yeah I hope the 650W will do just fine. Manufacturer also states the 650W is able to perform at 720W at peaks.

    Best bet would be a 750 Watt Power Supply on a Non-Overclocked CPU/Memory/Motherboard and an 850 Watt Power Supply with an Overclocked CPU/Memory/Motherboard.
    720W at Peak = 30 milliseconds in real time before the Power Supply Starts Tripping.

    Hi,
    Anyone willing to pay 1350.+ tax... wouldn't be skimping on a psu at 650w
    850w minimum and depending on cpu might be best at 1000w
    These items are cheap compared

    My first build,
    Case 450D/ ASUS Sabertooth X99/ 5930k with EK mono block / Water loop EK 280p-GTX240 radiators with D5 pump res combo before rads and D5 top after / Trident-Z 3200C14 4x8gb/ EVGA 1000 P2/ EVGA 1080ti FTW3 with EK copper water block.
     
    2nd build,
    Case D450/ ASUS x299 Prime Deluxe/ i9-7900x delidded with EK mono block/ Trident-Z 3600C16 4x8gb/ Water loop EK-280p-GTX240 radiators with D5 pump-res combo before rads and D5 top after/ EVGA 1200 P2 / Titan Xp with EK water block.

    I would like to see the clocks on them. I got 1 preordered and from what I heard that they are shipping them starting next week. I wouldn't go with nothing less than a 850+Watt PSU.

    Though it's only one year old... I've seen a video where they ran 3x 1080 TI's and a I7-7820X of a 750W psu. So I propably will give it a try. In theory it should be right at the border.

    i have no issues buying a new PSU as well, but like you said Striker, my PSU is less than a year old, and id rather not buy another PSU for no reason.

    I got an EVGA G3 1000W for 99 bucks on Amazon just a couple weeks ago. It was a major sale, and I don't think my current 650W will be enough for the 9900k and 2080 Ti combo. Lol

    Looks like the FTW3 may turn out to the best 2080 Ti. Best air cooler and among the best power limit.
     
    Also, never use a power supply maxed out. Efficiency drops off and power regulation worsens maxed out. 40-60% load is where PSU's shine. For a OC'd 2080 Ti system, I'd buy at least a 1000w power supply. I use a EVGA 1600w!

    People greatly overstate PSU needs. A 650w would almost certainly be fine for this and an OC’ed CPU. Thing is, the difference between a 650 and 750 is typically like 20 bucks, so if you’re about to buy a new one it wouldn’t hurt to go higher. Doesn’t mean you need to replace your current unless you have a TON of other power draw from various devices.

    Thanks for the heads up. Gonna get a 1000w PSU for my next rig rather than the 850.

    Re: FTW3 max Power is 373W (150%) 2018/09/29 12:31:24 (permalink)
    FYI: the official Nvidia guidance on RTX 2080 Ti is 650W minimum recommended system power. If you are overclocking a FTW3 card and / or overclocking a HEDT CPU/Motherboard then you obviously need more power. And operating a PSU at full rated power is not smart. You want to operate the PSU at a point with headroom so that under normal system draw is at a point 50-70% up the draw limit where efficiency peaks. 
     
    Also I'd rather buy a 1000W once, rather than buy a 650W, then upgrade to a 850W to O/C then upgrade to a 1000W if I change my mind and decide to go SLI. If you are throwing $1500 at a FTW3 why would you even question spending an extra $50-100 to get a more capable PSU?
     
    I think you are doing the right thing going for 1000W personally speaking. This was my choice too.

    Think 1: EVGA X99 Micro2 ¦ i7-5820K ¦ Kingston DDR4 2400 MHz 13-13-13-35 ¦ EVGA GTX 980 Ti SC ACX 2.0+ ¦ Samsung SM951 256GB ¦ RM1000i ¦ Dell UP2715K ¦ Caselabs Mercury S5 ¦ Single custom watercooling loop with Hardware Labs GTS 360 and GTS 240 and twin D5 pumps
     
    Think 2: EVGA X299 Dark ¦ i7-7800X ¦ G.Skill DDR4 3200 MHz 14-14-14-34 ¦ EVGA RTX 2080 Ti XC Gaming ¦ 2x Samsung 970 Evo 2TB ¦ EVGA SuperNOVA P2 1200 ¦ Dell UP2715K ¦ Caselabs Magnum SMA8/A ¦ Twin custom water-cooling loops with Hardware Labs GTX 560 and GTS 480 with D5 pumps and Aquaero 6 XT control

    I don't plan to overclock, I just wanna spend the money now to have options later. I think it'll be worth it.

    Everyone needs to calm down with the PSU histeria.  lol 
     
    If you're only doing a CPU + GPU (single), you won't want to go above 650w-750w. 
     
    If you're going to SLI, 850w at a min.  That should give you more than enough room for high OCs, custom cooling, HDs, etc.
