I wasn't looking but I should have been. I bought my SeaSonic S12 Energy Plus SS-550HT 80 Plus certified power supply in 2008 for $89.99. It has a 5 year warranty. I have been running it 24/7 for 12 years! Great brand. I'm going to be proactive and buy this one for $109.99 and it seems like a great deal. I have not owned a modular PS before, so it should be interesting. I don't like stuffing the cords into a wad at the top of the case.

Thanks again OP!!!

Edit: I didn't notice the post about the Amazon Phanteks being essentially the same PSUs with the same 10 year warranty (please correct me if I"m wrong!). I may change my order and get the Amazon Phantek 750 for the same price as the Seasonic 650.

Edit 2: I should add I have been running my SS-550HT 80 Plus with several upgrades including 125W CPU's and up to 11 hard drives (mostly 3.5in internal type) over the last 12 years - and it still works! But with around 105,000 hours - I'm concerned for its safety and mine.

Is this going to be plenty for the upcoming 3 series NVidia card paired with new Ryzen cpus?

The extra 5 years on the warranty is worth the extra $10 for the Seasonic imo, but that's good to know. Thanks.

Definite maybe. The new 3080 is supposed to draw ~45 more watts than a 2080 Ti, and a 2080 Ti recommends 650w. 750w might be safer.

Should be adequate, but a bit more wiggle room would be nice for 100% confidence.

2080Ti draws 277w at peak, round it to 300w for safety. If the 3080 draws 45 more watts, we'll round to 350w for safety.

https://www.tomshardware.com/revi...214-3.html
Ryzen 9 3900x with Precision Boost Overdrive draws 168w at peak, rounded to 170w for safety. I can't imagine the new generation of Ryzen CPUs drawing much more, possibly less.

So you're looking at 350w + 170w = 520w for the CPU & GPU alone, leaving a bit of headroom for other components.

All I would add is M.2 SSD and ram no other components and itx case with 1 fan. So this should be enough? They do make quality product, owned one and evga among best ones I have seen.

Oh yeah, you should be fine with this PSU. These power draw numbers are assuming almost 100% utilization which is rarely achieved by normal use. You'll have 130w to play with and a motherboard, cpu fan, case fans, drives and memory combined would draw at max 25-30w (probably much less).

Warranty is the same, which is 10 years for both phanteks amp and seasonic gx


just my experience on seasonic PSU durablity and quality,
I bought 2 seasonic X https://seasonic.com/x-series (in 2009 or 2010) , having been running >=10 years without issue om my customized workstation work SOHO, one is running 24/7. had been on 2 iterations replacing "better/new" mobo/cpu. ram, and ssd since 2009.

I bought Phanteks AMP 550W , it was $80. going to see, if AMP is still holding seasonic durablilty and quality...

Thanks for the info! I was looking to get this Seasonic but went with the Phanteks 650w instead. Looking at the pics they sure do look identical minus the graphics.

There's an odd discrepancy. The Amazon listing doesn't mention the warranty, but Newegg lists the warranty as 5 years under the warranty tab, then as 10 years elsewhere on the site.

Looks like you're correct on the 10 years, but the mid-july and August estimated in stock has me a little worried the boat from China may not show depending on how the trade war is going at that point.

Both options are cheaper than anything else available.

Ah crap i ordered the 550w version, and just saw this post but it's already gone. I assume 550w is a definite no Frown

Unfortunately this is one of the worst times to buy a PSU. I wouldn't buy one unless I absolutely needed it atm. Prices will come back down. Ofc there are always the super deals, where the price might be right, but this isn't it. This should be a $90 PSU normally.

Based on my understanding. This should be $100 not $90 for regulat price.
750 was $110
