Thank you for this. Needed to know if my current PSU would do 1080's SLI.

Re: Find what EVGA PSU is best for you! 2018/02/22 17:50:54 (permalink)
would be a good tool if it would work.  i just went through multiple configs and out of 3 attempts it gave pnly 1 recommendation which was the 1300w for 329.99. how on earth could a single gtx560Ti, and a core i7 980x (stock) with 4 spinning hard drives need a 1300w PSU ( another evga fail that is how).
 
talk about yet another EVGA FAIL, would be nice if evga hadnt lost pride in what they do but these days i find cs lacking, products lacking, and stuff like this "power meter" thing are a joke i mean really 1300 watt PSU needed for a single 560ti, a stock clocked 980x and 4 HDD's you have got to be kidding me especially with a 329.99 price tag.
 
personally my current PSU is more than 1300w but it is way overkill for my rig even when i was tri-slied ( no longer tri-slied due to evga manipulating my product page and failing customer service and becuase of not being to rma  (sarcasm: thanks evga) im on sigle gpu till i can find a new gpu from a DIFFERENT manufacture at a realistic price sorry evga but you failed me and without lifetime warranty i have no reason to remain brand loyal to you). 
 
with that said instead of wasting 329.99 on an evga 1300w ( for a single gpu stock clocked rig with 4 hard drive (could even go 6 HDD on less wattage) power supply i recommend instead the Lepa G1600, 1600 watt fully modular gold certified and made by enermax for only 349.99.  My Lepa G1600 has been running since  6/15/2012 and has had 0 issues

i am offended by your sig so you need to remove it.

do 500W+ psu ever go on deep discount? I am looking to upgrade to a 1080ti, but I can wait till a killer deal comes my way. I doubt I am going to find a 1080ti anytime soon. is black friday a good time to look or are sales kind of random?

Only if it is defective. Warranty does not cover damage by the customer.

Is it 4 years and few months long time for one PSU?
How long I should stay on EVGA 1200 P2 before I replace him. 5-6-7 years?
When I say he worked 4 years, that mean 4 years, she didn't sleep over night.
In rear situations on few hours.

I'm using a 1300, and I have a 1600 spare. I just will wait until the PSU starts going bad before replacing. In your situation, I know your asking a different question. So I would say 8 to 10 years for yours. Unless it fails before then.

That's probably best, to wait few more years.
I think something... If PSU Case is same size, than best to use highest power.
But difference between 750 T2 and 1000 T2 is not small.

Well at the end there is not a lot of difference with the 850 and 1000 except the connector . You guys think it worth it from 850 to 1000 ??

is the 650W P2 superflower of seasonic?
 
asked this in other topic but maybe here it fits best
 
I am looking into buying a 2080ti with my 650W P2, do you think I should be worried?
 
the system has :
 
- intel 6700K
- pioneer blu ray optical drive
- 32gb of ram
- 1 ssd
- 1 hdd
- 4 noctua fans
- plus the fans from my define r5 case
 
and I am also looking into getting the nu audio card.
 
I do not trust the only simulators that much...

650W P2 is a Super Flower. The CPU and GPU will pull around 100W and 300W (depending on the card) respectively under full load. I'd say you'd be fine with 650W, especially such a high-quality PSU.

(Didn't realize I replied to an upped necro thread).
 
Please change the color of the top info bar to green, at first glance I thought the tool returned an error until I read the message.

Thanks for this info.  I've been going overkill on my custom PCs by just going with the standard 850w or higher.

 Just because they may look the same, doesn't mean that they are the same, that's why I'm asking.

As long as they are not using proprietary plugs, should be compatible but with Dell, you never know.

I built JDM_WAAT's NAS Killer 1.0 2019 and unfortunately the site posted in the original post didn't have the chipset (Intel 3400). I submitted a request, so hopefully I get a response. I bought a B-Stock EVGA 750 watt (that didn't work and is being RMA'd) but I'm starting to think 750 watts is overkill for this UnRAID server.

Is it 4 years and few months long time for one PSU?
How long I should stay on EVGA 1200 P2 before I replace him. 5-6-7 years?
When I say he worked 4 years, that mean 4 years, she didn't sleep over night.
In rear situations on few hours.


I know you asked this a while ago, but it's still a worthwhile question that should have an answer.
 
One of my first power supplies was a SilverStone, which lasted 8+ years before I decided to swap it out. I used it in 2 or 3 different builds and had no issues.  It probably still works fine today, if I test it.
 
My current 1600 T2 is still working fine after medium work loads over the last 4 years.  It still has plenty of juice left in it.  That could change overnight, but you can't assume that the product will fail without warning, otherwise none of us would ever buy electronics.
 
Most power supplies are built extremely well because they have to be.  Many national and international regulations require various components to be within specific ranges, have certain tolerances, and other specs that force them to be built that way.  Higher efficiency ratings (i.e. Gold, Platinum, Titanium) also require higher quality components and better electrical designs to ensure reliability and efficiency.  No, that doesn't mean you can assume that a Platinum is built better than some Gold units, but it takes a fair amount of work to get it rated to Platinum in the first place.  This is one of the reasons that many power supplies have anywhere from 5 to 10 years of warranty.  Remember, brands aren't going out of their way to offer warranties that assume a product will fail multiple times during the length of its warranty.  There's a reason they expect them to last at least that long.
 
We are in a golden age (pun not intended) of power supplies right now in terms of choices among many solid, well-built, and affordable power supplies compared to the market even 10 years ago.  Many good brands exist now, nearly all mid- to high-end power supplies have some level of Japanese capacitors, and even mid- to low-end power supply lines have efficient designs with low ripple and noise. 
 
The only real known issue with age is that the power supply will likely become less efficient as it ages.  The degree to which it will lose efficiency will depend on the specific unit.  With that said, that doesn't mean the power supply is headed towards failure.  Just like a car will lose some gas mileage over its lifespan, it doesn't mean you run out to replace it if it's running fine otherwise. 
 
I wouldn't replace your power supply anytime soon.  Unless you have an issue, or you decide to build another system, there's no real benefit to trying to guess when the unit might fail.  After all, you could just end up replacing it with a power supply that does have problems, which will require an RMA.  Otherwise, the PSU is expected to last at least another 5-6 years.  That doesn't mean it will, of course, but there's also no reason to assume it won't.

It might not be clear to people, but we add wattage based on the processor used (since the motherboard only adds a small amount), and add the chipset used at the same time.  I found the build thread, which is using a Xeon X3470, so I'll try to get that added later today.  It's a 95W CPU, so you could run the Power Meter with an i9-9900K CPU via the Z390 motherboard and achieve the same result until I get the X3470 up on the Power Meter.
