  • I have been keeping an eye out for a 635 watt PSU after missing out on an ebay deal and today the ebay gods threw me a bone in the form of a 635w NVC7F for $50! Assuming it works I just need the aux cable. Based on the link provided above does this cable appear to be compatible? If so I can save a couple more bucks. :)

    • Dustin Shropshire That's a great price!  Dell PN: D92C9 is what you need.

  • Not sure of hand which model of the 635w PSU I have installed, however, I have two 6 pin. 

    I have a Powercolour RX580 Red Devil installed that has a 6 pin and a 8 pin (300w). I'll list below the cable I used to convert. I've had no issues with the power draw and haven't had any higher than around 190w with GPU running at 100%.

    Now when I tested the Vega 64 (two 8 pin) is a different story...... Just fits and boots fine, but as expected the PSU shut down once I tried to load it up 😆

    • Hans Mattsson Hello, Hans,

      From what I understand of the Vega 64, it requires a minimum of a 550 watt power supply, plus the addition of your CPU's 190w draw. I don't know if you factored your HDD/SDDs, RAM and accessories (both PCIe and USB). But I personally think you are running over your PSU's limit and may need to go to a higher one for your VEGA 64 support. For my system, I went straight for a 1000 watt power supply so that I have some extra room to grow.

    • stormson weathers Sorry I misspoke. For some reason I was thinking of the T3500/5500/7500 series and not their updated contemporaries. But the power draw info still applies.

      stormson weathers stormson weathers lol yes of course. I just needed to see that the card booted and was working properly (2nd hand card). As long as it was idle, no problem. I've got a Corsair AX1600i 1600W Titanium for the build I'm putting together ;-)

  • Hi guys, (new here) I got a T3610 about a week ago...32GB Ram, Geforce GTX 1060, 1TB SSD and 2TB 7200RPM HDD. I know I saw somewhere that it's best to have the larger PSU as I have the 425W. I called BestBuy and they have a PSU at the store they said will work that's 600W....Although, there chart they had me fill out to figure out what kind of PSU I needed was still around 400-430W. 

     

    I'm wondering how that's possible? I feel like I'm pulling a lot of power. Should I run and try to make it to BestBuy by closing time or am I just fine with what I have? ^_^

     

    Thank you guys!

    • Michael Glovik very nice setup!  You should get the 635W Power Supply.  Are you located in the lower 48 states?

    • Jbigticket23 Thank you! Yes, I just moved to the midwest. I wish there was a way to see how much power I'm currently using via bios or something. 😅

    • Michael Glovik The best deals on the 635W Power Supplies appear to be on ebay.  Search pn 1K45H or NVC7F.  If you get one under $100 you are doing a great job.

  • PSU showed up today, a day early. :) Install was very simple and everything plugged right in. Before install I un-installed the AMD drivers and powered down. Swapped the PSU and GPU and fired it up. Unfortunately it did not boot properly until I figured out the GPU wasn't clipped in 100%. After I ensured it was clipped in it fired right up! Very happy. Now if that wasn't enough i'm going to start searching for a cpu upgrade, after I get rid of that pesky case cover bracket.
