    Tier S are bequiet , both would of been in the Tier 1 off the older class scale, but as with new techs, models,oem/vendors entering in the market they added more tiers

    Vii seems to consume the same power as the 64 or slightl less . all new Vega design was a power hog! plus AMD bios, navi is the design that should save power , specially at 7nm

    Ah right, that's the more expensive Dark Power Pro lineup.

    ah silly me, was getting mixed up . yep your right , units are the same tier . apologies. need to grab some coffee in work i think !

    this is handy , shows power load for components

    not sure if Corsair has one but must vendors/oem do like seasonic

    I reckon the be quiet! PSU might be the better choice and possibly quieter under load, so overall the better one to pick. Updated basket:

    My basket at Overclockers UK:
    Total: £532.81 (includes shipping: £0.00) ​

    @davidmt83

    heads up with B550... its Q3 , pretty sure late Q3 ( i delete roadmaps after viewing ) - so might have to wait longer . Budget entry X570 should do the trick though . Cant remember if more PCIe lanes have been assigned to X570 to further compete with Intel ( ability to house more nvme drives on z390/b360 but x299 has been less then thread ripper- until now)

    OH OH OH on deal! bit overkill but cheaper ! and just incase you need the extra power or have less load so lower RPM

    Thinking about it more I think I'll get the RMx 750w, increased power gives more headroom before the 40% load is reached. Can't get more silent than 0RPM :D

    Vega 56 uses roughly 250w by its self

    https://www.kitguru.net/components/...idia-rtx-2060-founders-edition-6gb-review/15/

    Good testing from kit guru as able to isolate GPU draw accurately by its self .

    Ryzen overclock or intel overclocked on all cores can draw a lot of tdp, normally 150w . Tatsed tdp on the box are base speed/turbo etc
