    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?

    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.

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

    In 550W they are totally better - because Cosair doesn't have two PCIE connectors on the PSU side for GPUs, only two 8pin of wich you need one for the CPU...

    Bitfenix Formua is cheap and soldered, so no Problems with PSU side burned Connectors....
    Whisper M and Straight Power also come with enough connectors and no PCIe-Y Cables for the GPU (= you can use higher power Cards).

    Where you have to send the PSU if its broken is something you might want to look at...

    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?
