    Default Please help with power supply for gamer PC

    Hey guys. I'm new here but I heard you might be nice enough to take a look at my build and help me with an appropriate power supply. I'm thinking of overclocking a little (and at most 4.6GHz which should be around 1.35v).

    NZXT Manta Mini ITX Case for PC - Black by NZXT (£108.97)

    Gigabyte GA-Z170N-Gamin​g 5 Motherboard (LGA 1151, Intel Z170, HDMI SATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.1/USB 3.0, Mini ITX) (¬£149.99)

    Intel Core i7 6700K Processor (4 GHz, 4 Core, 8 Threads, 8 MB cache, LGA1151 Socket Box) (£327.89)

    EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 SC Gaming 8 GB ACX 3.0 Graphic Card - Black by EVGA (£436.07)

    NZXT X61 Kraken Watercooler by NZXT (£116.99)

    Samsung 750 EVO 500 GB 2.5 inch Solid State Drive - Black by Samsung (£119.99)

    Viper Elite Series DDR4 16GB (2 x 8GB) 3000MHz Kit (Red) PVE416G300C6KRD by Patriot Memory (£75.99)

    I thought of this 600 W power supply from EVGA:

    EVGA 600 W 80+ PC Power Supply Unit - White by EVGA (£48.95)

    I don't know if it's enough or even good for my build but tell me what you think.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    Poor choice. But you need to be willing to up your budget. Well you should up your budget a bit. All you need is a good 450W PSU. Reach inside, look into your heart. Abd give the PSU a little love.

    A good 400W power supply is already enough for that. Is the Corsair Vengeance 400W available in Denmark? It's a much better choice then that EVGA PSU which is a really poor choice.

    I know you like those units but, they are 7 years old and really not that good for a modern PC.

    I dont like them that much. But when compared to EVGA W1...they are far better

    In fact, i would rather buy Antec VPF or CXM.

    Oh no, by all means hang that hardware on a subpar PSU... Who gives a crap about those boring things anyway, amirite?
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    McSteel: Not everyone can see your font, nor do they necessarily know that you're being sarcastic. So to a new-comer, your post can come across as rude.

    To the OP: It is rather silly to build with such nice parts and then power it with one of the worst (best of the worst? Worst of the best?) PSUs out there.

    Or 99kr more if a modular cabling (to the OP: the higher capacity isn't important with reference to your expected power draw) may come handy: https://www.proshop.dk/Stroemforsyni...iceret/2552152
