    Default Corsair RM Series RM650 80+ Gold (modular) best psu for 74 euros?

    Hello everyone. As some of you might remember, i was looking for psu for 5700xt+9600k(everything oc and etc). So ppl said there are not many good deals in russia. But my friend is going to buy some stuff from https://www.computeruniverse.net , so now i have a chance to look for some other suggestions. He also need a psu for 9600k/9700k + 2080 super/2070 super (he didnt decided yet, but will purchase a psu at first). So are there any better options that corsair rm 650 for both of us in this price range (about 74 euros exluding vat)?

    This is a pretty good review: https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews...pply,6187.html

    Any concerns?

    Yeah, no doubt, its reliable PSU. What about Bitfenix Formula, Whisper M, be quiet Straight Power 11? Are they better?

    1) 9600/9700 are bad CPUs, look at "the other side", you get more/better suff there. For example less susceptible to Sidechannel Attacks (and the need for mitigations, wich cost performance. And popp up every couple of months)
    2) Bitfenix Formula, Whisper M, be quiet Straight Power 11
    3) 550W should be enough

    Personally I'd go half Bitfenix Formula, half be quiet Straight Power 11 or one of each.

    They're not bad CPUs, just expensive. Stefan is right, though, to steer you to an AMD this generation. But the NVIDIA GPUs generally run cooler (use less power?) than AMD graphics cards. Best bet: save money on CPU, put that money on a high-quality PSU.

    Okay, it seems like u wonder why did i choose intel over amd. In russia they sell asus maximus hero viii z170 for a very low price (lower than cheapest z370/z390). So, we have b450+3600 and modded z170+9600k at the same price. Moreover, i dont play games that need a lot of cores. Finally, even if i go with amd, i will still need to change mobo, when ddr5 comes out. My question is: corsair rm is not high quality psu?

    I only recommend PSU with independant voltage regulation

    That's not true.
    Or rather that is only true in the last couple of years, with Fermi vs. Terascale, AMD was more efficient.
    Anyway with Navi (5700 series) its not that bad.
    But it also looks that nVidia Cards "lose performance" against the AMD Cards when they get older.
    That might simply be because of some "secret sauce" nVidia uses -> Driver optimization.
    And they just stop doing that when the Card gets older and thus you can argue that we then see the "real performance".

    And here the GK104 drops to Pitcairn levels in many cases and Tahiti battles with GK110 (GTX780) in many cases...

    So you can get the ASUS Maximus Hero for 100?? I doubt that.
    Since B450 isn't compatible, you have to look for the Ryzen 3000 ready sticker or get an older CPU that works on B450 (=Zen1 or so, for example Athlon 200GE) or get a Board that works out of the Box -> Sticker or special Version (MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX).
    The Cheapest Board that I'd use would be:
    MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX
    MSI B450-A PRO MAX
    MSI B450M PRO VDH Max

    In that order.
    The first one is around 100, the PRO MAX around 90 or so and the VDH around 80.

    So to me Its a no brainer:
    Get a decent quality mainstream B450 for 100-125 or so.
    At around 160 the X570 Boards start wich are guaranteed to work with Zen2 CPUs and are more likely to get an update for Zen3 once it comes out later next year.
