1. Another concern is the PSU. The standard PSU is only 460W. The load on the PSU as a percentage of the total power rating would be quite high, degrading the components in the PSU and causing premature failure.

2. Does anyone think that I am overly conservative in this respect

3. should I spring for the 850W unit with liquid cooling

 


1. Exactly. Not many people understand this. I tell everyone that asks before hand to get the 850w Power Supply. If it only ever runs at 50% utilization, that is excellent.

2. No

3. Yes.
