Upgrade Precision T3600 Power Supply Kit
If you have a 425W Power supply you can upgrade by ordering these 2 parts:
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. :)
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 😆

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!
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.
