    Default SF450 platinum and new build

    Hello I am going to be building my second gaming rig in a few days. It will have a ryzen 2600 non-OC a rx 5700 red dragon from powercolor a msi b450i gaming plus itx MB 4 fans a 3 SSDs in a q300l case.
    My question is will the SF450 platinum be enough and safe for long term use?? as I'm pretty sure the max the system will draw is between 300-350w it might be less than 300w for all I know as I'm no expert. Thanks in advance.

    Yes it's enough and yes that estimation should be close.

    Thanks for the quick response. What wall watt meter do you recommend? I've seen quite a few on Amazon.

    If a SFX power supply has benefits over an ATX power supply, then the Corsair SF Platinum 450W is the best choice. Corsair SF series are the best SFX power supply series in my opinion. 450W is more then enough. And the Platinum version comes with an ATX bracket. Which makes the Corsair SF450 Platinum the most logical choice.

    By the way, make sure the 8 pins EPS cable is long enough.

    ITX mobo in mATX case. EPS12V should be long enough.

    Thanks good catch just checked 24pin should have a 1+ of slack eps12v is plenty long I'll post pick after I get the GPU and psu. Worst case scenario I do have a core 500 its case. Side not just spent 3hrs building it lol tried to get the nh-l12s to fit with the exhaust fan in the rear sadly it would no matter what orientation I installed it in. Also very glad I bought thermal grizzly carbonaught pad. I'm getting PSU and GPU tomorrow after work. Hopefully everything works. I wore a static band as I always do.
