Corsair CX 500 80 plus bronze good enough for a galax gtx 1060 6gb?
Topic name, basically. Getting myself a H110, I5 6400 and the galax gtx 1060 6gb.
As i did not have enough money for a better PSU I ended up grabbing it...will that hinder me in any way? Can i expect it to last 2 years, at least? Should have I gone with the EVGA 600w plus bronze, instead? I should have asked here but the price of it was so good and I didn't have much time to ask.
I'm only staying with the cx 500 for 1-2 before grabbing a new one...thing is, most people around here hate the CX series, saying that it will cause problems on my pc, fry the motherboard, etc etc...that makes me afraid. I don't want to wait weeks and weeks to return it and buy another one
At the load you're running I honestly would not worry.
Performance on the older CX has never been an issue , ripple, stability, voltage regulation have ALWAYS been decent ,they used to be tier 3 , they were dropped to tier 4 unfairly IMO after reports of them dying prematurely after 2-3 years .
This mat be true but its normally when they've been pushed to heavy loads continuously under high temp conditions.
Personally I've never considered them to be dangerous to system components & never will.
Yes there are better units available but there are also far far worse ones.
