    Default New build - Lost idea

    I just had to register to solve my headache.
    Future build target specs below and am thinking what PSU to get. Got my eye on EVGA G2, but pursue me on other possibilities available if needed.

    Ryzen 7 OC around 3.8-3.9Ghz Vcore 1.3-1.35V
    x370 motherboard
    MSI 1080 Gaming X 8G 2Ghz for core with slight offset for voltage if needed
    WLAN PCI-E card
    6 120mm fans and pump for custom loop
    2 SSD
    2 HDD
    2-3 LED for case lighting
    etc. basic stuff

    Calculators suggest 650W psu, for total draw of around 560W. Don't mind having some headroom for passive cooling of the unit, but I suppose it won't let itself be heard over all those rad fans.
    750w seems overkill for this, as I do not have dual cards in mind for the future. I'd rather buy one good unit now (only upgrading from SuperFlower 500W platinum as I feel it would cut too tight) and have it run for the 5-10 year mark.

    More like ~450W peak power. So I wouldn't change the power supply.

    I would suspect they have been made U.S.A legal proof, so no one can sue the website if the power supply should happen to be underpowered or FizzzzPop for any reason that could lead back there.

    I will give the system a go with the 500w and check the draw from wall under load to check but should be ok. 400-450w system should only happen under Prime95+Furmark at the same time for example
