I'm surprised this isn't getting any attention, considering the new CX-M line has scored pretty favorably by JonnyGuru [jonnyguru.com]

With the new power efficient cards from AMD and Nvidia, 550W is just the right amount for a single GPU setup, especially combined with the semi-modularity that is most welcome in ITX/SFF builds.

In for one. Gone are the sales that used to crop up regularly for the CX430M and CS450M in the past.

Sorry for sounding like a noob but i want to kinda future-proof my computer, i currently have an 1150 socket MB with an i3-4360 (plan on upgrading this year to an i7 4790K and the GPU to the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070, will this do? accodring to outervision(dot)com my estimated consumption is 482W but that seems low to me, but then again im not doing anything extreme really... any input is appreciated

For some reason that estimate sounds high to me. But either way 550 is plenty unless you plan on going with multiple gpu's and/or a bunch hd's, fans, water cooling pumps, etc. Last time I checked, my i7 4770k, and 760GTX could get by with less than 450 watts.

That estimate is too high.

For reference, power consumption by reviewers of the 1070 for the entire system have ranged from mid 200W to a little over 300 under full load:

There's a reason why even Nvidia recommends [geforce.com] that you only need a 500W PSU on their specs sheet -- the 1070 is extremely power efficient.

thanks repped
haha np. For reference I myself am sporting a i7 4790k with 1 HDD, 1 SSD, an H60 cooler, a few fans, and an Asus Turbo GTX 1070 on an EVGA 500W 80+ Gold PSU and it's been rock solid.

Use the calculator http://outervision.com/power-supply-calculator. Bear in mind it will calculate base on assumption you running CPU and GPU 100% which is quite rare unless you like playing multiple benchmarks simultaneously. Your CPU GPU combination is going to draw only 300W at full load. They recommend 350W. Add in all other components so add another 50W. 400W should be fine, again this is 100% full load on both CPU and GPU.

Calculator is pretty accurate even adjust for overclock speed and voltage. I run OC i5-2500k @ 1.4v 4.9G with OC RX 470 1325/1825 with only 420W perfectly fine.
