    Default Help me to choose psu

    Hello, my current system is:
    AMD ryzen1600; b450motherboard; 2x8gb ddr4 3200; AMD r9 270(will upgrade to 1660super/1070/1070ti); 1xSSD; 1xHDD; 1xdvd drive; 3x140mm case fans. GPU is overclocked, CPU is on stock settings, after gpu upgrade i will try to overclock the cpu to 3.6-3.8GHz and might add another ssd.

    My current psu is EVGA 500 W1, 80+ WHITE 500W and i think to upgrade it.

    I have 2deals:
    1.Segotep GP600G, 500W, Active PFC, 80+ Gold, 120mm fan, non-modular, ATX 12V 2.31, 3y warranty; 50usd (i read it is Platimax D.F inside)
    2.LC power LC1200 V2.4 - Platinum Series , 1200W, 80platinum, 135mm fan, ATX 12V 2.4, no warranty, only 30days money back, the power supply is new,not used. 70usd (i read it is Andryson R1200 inside)

    Please help me what to choose or suggest me another one in 50-100usd price range. I dont care if it is modular, semi or not, because i use all sata cables for hdd bottom and for dvd on top.

    And sorry for my bad english.

    The Segotep GP600G is a logical choice for a PC like that in Romania. But you only say Europe, so if you life in another country there could be a better choice. So if you want more options we need to no what's available for which price.

    The Segotep GP600G is a good mainstream option for 50 USD and the Bitfenix Formula Gold 450W is a good high-end option for 75 USD.

    Not very much high-end when it trips with RTX2080 Ti. I'd say LC Power LC1200 would be good high-end choice if for this price as it's really Andyson R1200, with probably only SF Leadex III being an upgrade from it. But for this current build, Segotep GP600G would be ideal choice.

    That's supposed to happen if you're trying to overload the PSU. And I also don't think that he is upgrading to a RTX 2080 Ti anytime soon.

    No, it's not overload problem as in total power rating overload but single GPU rail (on 450&550W SKUs) OCP overload, it can be fixed by hard modding in additional cable on second rail which is still present on the PCB.

    I know how it works, I also know the power consumption of a RTX 2080 Ti. That's why I wouldn't recommend it anyway.

    Hi again. My pc case is with bottom psu mounting with ventilation holes and dust filter and sits on carpet. I didnt think about it, but my psu fan is facing downwards the carpet and i think this is bad. Is ti better to make some standoff to raise the pc about 2inch or just turn psu fan facing inside the case-towards gpu? Also i am using normal mode, fan always works.

    In this case just mount the PSU with fan facing up.
