Seeking for a PSU, compatible with Intel i7-6700k and Asus Z170 Pro

Good day to all

 

The title says it all.

 

I am trying to find a compatible PSU in the 500~750 W range, compatible with the above CPU/Motherboard combination.

 

I have found the VS Series-650W CP-9020051-NA PSU, which "conforms to ATX12V v2.31 standard", as per its specs and at the same moment is quite affordable, but I am not sure if its specs are compatible with the above CPU/Mobo combination.

 

Any feedback will be highly appreciated.

Are you looking for fully modular PSU? How many GPU's will you be using?

 

You're components are pretty high end, so I would suggest at least a RMx.

Thanks, Henry, I will follow your advice.

 

BTW, I am going to use only one GPU, the XFX Radeon R9-380, 4GB one, but in connection with it there are some more add-in components, like four additional storage HDDs, a TV video capture card, etc.

Update

 

From this morning, I am the owner of a modular Corsair HX Series HX1050 Pro 80 Plus Gold PSU (EU Plug). I hope it will cover my demands.

-

 

I am updating this thread because today, after a long absence abroad, when I returned home, I tried to operate my PC and I observed that the main (side or top - it depends how the PSU is positioned in the PC case) fan of the HX1050 PSU does not turn at all.

 

However, the computer worked fine for several minutes, I managed to install the updates (quite a few, I can say) and after finishing this job I shut it down and I am now posting my observation.

 

I have never seen before a PSU supplying enough power to a PC for several minutes with its fan non operating. I wonder if there is a function in it to turn the fan on when it gets warm enough and turn it off again when it's cooled down.

 

If this function does not exist, is what I observed a malfunction?

And if yes, what can I do to save the PSU from getting destroyed?

 

Thanks

hi. your psu can work at zero rpm fan if the psu have to handle system load under 20%, you can see it there to TECH SPECS page ( http://www.corsair.com/en-eu/hx-series-hx1050-power-supply-1050-watt-80-plus-gold-certified-modular-psu-eu ). i assume when you only make those installs the watts load was very low. So you can try a heavy triple-A game title to see how the psu behave or a heavy stress test to your pc. i dont know if your psu can work with zero rpm fan speed under some temp to psu.

Thanks for your recommendation, mate (your nickname sounds "Greek" to me, am I right?).

 

I tried a stress test, the AIDA64 stability test, and it forced the PSU fan to start and keep operating. As soon as I stopped the test, the fan stopped. This is a very nice feature, I can say and it is a pleasant surprise for me.

 

Thank you again.
