Digital multimeter is all you need. Please wear proper safety gear when testing. PSU can kill more than components, it can kill people.

Did the test since I have a 1,000watt PSU... i7 7700k OC to 4.9ghz, 16gb RAM and GTX1080 (Both CPU and GPU watercooled with their own pumps and fans) and Im barely breaking 480 watts... Total overkill... Def going 600watt and modular next build.

So I need some help. I have a laptop that's out of warranty that refuses to turn on. I don't plan on saving the laptop, but saving the data. The problem is it has two SSD's and they're in raid 0 for the OS, how would I retrieve the data for something like that?

Case fan power splitters are a good thing. Especially on smaller boards.

I prefer more wattage incase I want to upgrade.

1 day ago

I tried running an AIO with an fx-8300 and Vega 64 (progressive upgrade). The 750W was insufficient and after moving the Vega to an old 500W PSU and the system booted. I've since upgraded my PSU.

No, sorry I can't agree on this, buying a high wattage power supply isn't going to hurt running significantly below max load, and it means you're not going to have to buy twice if you decide to add a second graphics card or other hardware.

This vid is giving bad long term advice.

tested all the power supply calculators here is the results
System:

CPU: 2600x
GPU:sapphire pulse vega 56
RAM: 2x8GB 3200 DDR4
Storage: NVME M.2 500GB
Fans: 2x140mm, 1x120mm, and 1 amd wraith spire


calculator results:
seasonic: 1060 W minimum
MSI: 326 W
bequiet: 384 W with overclocking 338 W without overclocking
outer vision: 578 W with overclocking
Real world: my PC never draws more than 400 W measured from the wall I have a 650 W evga g2 80+ gold so that's 360 W but don't go that low buy 50 watts more than what you need just to have that peace of mind
recommended: outer vision calculator.

What about when you want to get twice the wattage that you actually need for optimal power efficiency?

From experience helping another guy with a faulty boot, AIO cooling can be plugged into the wrong pin header resulting in a pump running uneven speeds, triggering overheating, or the pump to die, leaving the AIO as just a very fancy water bottle.

On the same system a faulty PSU ended up damaging the Motherboard, and my mistake was to focus on the overheating cpu issue, resulting in the death of the motherboard, the lesson is that if you have an issue with power, always make sure your PSU is discharged, if it is faulty and down discharge or you dont have ground plugged into the PSU from the wall, any capacitors in the the PSU can discharge to the components reorienting components, which can cause lasting damage, as the only ground connection is you, your own fingers can cause shorts that will carry the discharge, even if it is small enough that you dont feel it, it can still pass through more delicate components. Safest thing to do is simply to use a ground pin on the psu, power down the system turn off the PSU on the back, then disconnect it from the socket in the wall and ground yourself. Although not common to get static shock issues, these are the kind of trouble shoots that leads to multiple component troubleshooting, which is much more difficult to diagnose, and can leave you barking up the wrong tree for a very long time!
