Power Supply Recommendation?

mis7akes

1 month ago

Can anyone recommend what wattage PSU i SHOULD have ?

Current Build:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1700 CPU Cooler: Arctic Esports duo fan cooler GPU: Asus RX570 Motherboard: Gigabyte B450M Memory: 32GB DDR4 Corsair Vengeance Storage: 250GB SSD & 1TB HDD SATA Fans: 4 RGB ThermalTake fans with controller hub Also hooked up to 2 24” monitors

I currently have a 550W PSU just am unsure if that is enough to run my build effeciantly, also have been hearing a slight buzzing sound from it which i may think its overworking possibly?

Any advice would help!

make a parts list here, you can then get an idea of the watts the system will run at

your completed build will say: XXX watts

A well-built 450w supply is more than enough to run your build. Unless your power supply doesn't match up to its specs, then it shouldn't be anywhere near stressing.

What model PSU do you have currently?

550w should be more than enough, and it should not overwork the PSU at all. You may be hearing "coil whine", which is annoying but not indicative of a problem. What model is the PSU?
