    Default Should I upgrade my PSU?

    Hey guys, 2 years ago I upgraded my PC and also bought a nice little psu, the Corsair Vengeance 400. Now it's time for a new upgrade. I just sold my i3-6100/H110 combo and bought on the cheap a used Ryzen 5 1600 and (about to) a used MSI B350 board. A couple months ago I also swapped my 1050Ti for an RX570 4GB Nitro+ which requires an 8pin and a 6pin PCI-e connector. The V400 proved to be solid as a rock even when I overclocked that gpu. MSI Afterburner showed a peak GPU power consumption of 175W for the GPU (for the CPU - the 6100- it was 30W I think). I'm planning to oc the Ryzen cpu at 3.7GHz (1.27v-1.3v I hope) or minimum at 3.6GHz and the RAM as high as it can go (I will use the same RipjawsV 2133MHz kit I bought 2 years ago) but I will not go beyond 1.40V on DRAM voltage. Also it would be nice to use at times the same oveclocking profile for the RX570.
    So what do you think? Should I also swap my psu for a 500W+ or would I be ok? It still has 3 years left of its warranty.

    400W should still be fine.

    The Corsair Vengeance 400W is enough for those light overclocks.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks, that's good to know. Most recommend over 500W for similar builds, for the headroom I suppose.
