I just purchased this machine which has the RTX 2080 graphics installed. It’s equipped with a 500 watt ps which superficially seems inadequate since the cpu and GPUs maximally consume 315 watts and of course that figure excludes power drawn from the motherboard, SDD, HDD, wireless and the power supply itself.
Before I open the carton and commit to it I’d to know from those with experience whether:
a) the power supply will be sufficient?
b) the system fan noise, including both case and GPUs fans, is excessive (I’m assuming that the fans will work longer and harder to compensate in part for the extra heat stress of an overworked power supply)
