My little input would be to think really well about PSU and if 500W will be enough at the end of the day. Some parts actually requires more power than their manufacturers declares ( sometimes they write down power usage on minimal strain while on load they require way more ) .
I had first hand experience with this with my last PC. It had 500W PSU and after a month or so it burned down my GTX970 which was 500euros at the time, i was lucky it was under warranty and PSU wasnt my choice so they had to replace it and i also had to get 700W PSU to feed that beast.
PSU is really one of those part most people tend to cheap out and well it’s literally most important thing in a PC.
At 24/7 usage 90% TDP, it tips in at 448 W needed. I already mentioned would recommend using 650w or more. Not sure if it got switched out. The 500W was initially in there because I had tried adding a GTX 1660 and that would probably work if on a tighter budget. Tbh, that was mostly my bad for not properly checking the RX 580. That being said, I did catch it eventually and mention it.
Remove about 100w and it’s correct. PSU calculators for some reason always report way too much, not sure why…
Take 200 for the RX 580, R5 2600 really doesn’t use a lot but lets be generous and say 80. Then you’re left with the other components which use… nothing really. You’re looking at like 300w, if you really push the system maybe towards 350 or something.
I’d recommend a decent 550w psu, or maybe 650w, so there is plenty of headroom for upgrading to more power hungry components.
Probably Capacitor aging. want to take that into account as well. We’re looking at 5+ years replacement time on most things except maybe the CPU and Graphics card. And things for @Danacscott are cost prohibitive. Add about 34% AFTER TAX compared to US pricing.
354W. add in capacitor aging of 20% and we are looking at 443W. Trying to get close to the 50-75% efficiency peak nets in the 650W to 750W range without going over budget.
Can of pressurized air will be your best friend . While you can try and clean fans with some piece of cloth or tissue you wont get much done because your fingers just wont fit anywhere and i strongly advice against cleaning any CPU,MOBO or GPU parts with any kind of cloth ( it’s best not to touch them at all ) .
