PSU for I7 6700k and 1070

I wanna start building a new rig soon and i'm looking for a good PSU. I'm thinking about buying Seasonic S12 II 520W but im concerned that it's not gonna be enough. Any advice? I really wanna get a good PSU in range to like 90 euros (100$). If that's not enough i'm thinking of Seasonic M12 II 620W EVO (I know M is the modular variant, i cant find non-modular variant in my country :( ). I might overclock down the line.

  1. in some countries a XFX TS is way cheaper than a Seasonic.
    depending on your OC 520W can be enough.

    besides the Seasonic, the XFX TS & sometimes the Corsair Rmi series tends to be affordable.
  2. If your going to overclock go ahead and get the 620.
    A XFX TS, TXR or EVGA G2 series would also be good choices.

    The stores i'm looking at don't even have XFX PSUs :D .
  4. I'd buy something based on a more modern platform than the S12ii/TS. Main reason being that the minor rails do practically nothing nowadays meaning every modern day computer is constantly crossloading, meaning there is an uneven load distribution with a heavy load on the 12V rail. Non group-regulated power supplies are also compatible with the Skylake sleep states which induce a crossloading behavior where the 12V rail has barely any load.

    The Enermax Revolution X't II 550W is a good power supply I'd recommend http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817194122&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC-_-pla-_-Power+Supplies-_-N82E16817194122&gclid=Cj0KEQjwoau9BRDMvsnv5MCh24UBEiQAKOqcfdU6venY69mEJDa0Nu3_1q8_s5kHhJakw5AjiMEiuEQaAmLJ8P8HAQ&gclsrc=aw.ds

    The FSP Hydro X 450W is also a great choice http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817104229&cm_re=fsp_hydro_x_450-_-17-104-229-_-Product

    So is Seasonic PSU still an option or its a nono?
  6. You can get whatever you want but those are my recommendations. The Hydro X 450 is perfectly fine even with overclocking, as long as you're not overclocking to the empire state building the entire system should not go past 250W when gaming or with an overclocked system it should not go past 325W-350W while gaming.

    I like the Enermax for being semimodular though.

    it is an option but if you can find the ones turkey3_scratch listed, it'd be even better.

    Ok i'll try to find 'em.
  9. None of these PSUs are listed in my country. But from what i've read i can just disable those Skylake sleep states and be ok. I'll keep looking.

    the Skylake sleep state is not why he recommended those PSUs.
    it's about the build design and the load distribution inside the PSU

    if you can't find those he listed, a Seasonic or a XFX or an EVGA Supernova GS/G2 will do fine.

    I forgot to mention in description that its M12 II EVO not regular one. Does it make any difference?
  13. the EVO is just as good.
  14. If they're not available that's fine. S12ii/M12ii are still good.

    Yea i just wanna get something that's decent. I don't need excellent quality. All i need is a PSU that's not gonna take the rest of the components with it when something fails. I can disable those sleep modes or add a little fan, I don't really care about power all that much. I googled around reviews for given PSU and it seemed that it's decent.
