Rough power supply estimate

Posted 18 June 2013 - 05:24 PM

My 25$ hercules 600w PSU recently "exploded" in a shower of sparks and smoke. I got a new 600w Thermaltake psu for ~70$, should this one be able to handle my hardware? The night my psu failed i was playing crysis, most likely on an overclocked cpu. Here is what i have: gtx 670 ftw edition, amd fx 6300 6 core 3.5 ghz, 8 gigs of g skill rip jaws ram at 1333 mhz, 500 gig HDD, 1 disk drive. Should my parts be safe after that recent meltdown?

... you don't know if you overclocked your CPU or not? Ah, what?

Start looking up the parts and reading the required power needs.

gtx 670 ftw edition

Quote

System Requirements Minimum of a 500 Watt power supply. (Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 30 Amps.)


AMD FX-6300 Vishera 3.5GHz

Quote

Thermal Design Power 95W


RAM is negligible.. hard drives as well.

So yeah it should work. The key takeaway being don't buy ultracheap power supplies.

I have no idea what the melt down did to them.. so they may be okay.. may not..
