Comment reply on Forum Topic "is putting a 1000 watt psu in my pc bad for it"

1000W is overkill for a single-GPU build, even with your i9-9900k. Unless you're planning on adding another graphics card in the future or really can't find a less expensive unit in stock, there's no reason to go that high.

PSU efficiency varies with load, but higher 80+ standards for efficiency also impose requirements at low loads (relative to the max output of the PSU). These days, it's not a huge deal if you go too big. Sometimes fan curves will also be more aggressive with the high-power models, but that depends on the particular line of PSUs you go with.

1000W is more than you probably need.

If you're strictly buying unused products, Nvidia has been very good at working with its partners to ensure remaining supply of previous-generation cards is low by the time the next generation is released.

I wouldn't expect any huge savings.

I would not be surprised if this is something the Liberals are going to force in there if we let them stay here for any longer. Globalism (read: communism) is on a rise in our nation. I can't imagine what goes on elsewhere in the world.

We're at war with the globalists, who admit they're trying to establish a corporate world government, that's tax-exempt, that admits it wants to destroy the family, and private property, and even single-family dwellings.

For what it's worth, even outside of helping to save capacity for food & other essentials, I think you're doing PCPP users a bigger favor than they may realize.

Even if retailers are already prioritizing the essentials, you're saving users from getting stuck with delayed orders. My colleagues and I have orders for monitors and such that were placed with Amazon over 3 weeks ago. The items haven't shipped yet and we keep getting notifications pushing the delivery date. If people don't care about what doesn't affect them, then this gives them something to think about.

Theory: We all have Covid-19, its just some of us have severe symptoms and stand out more that others. If not all, most people.

That would require current tests to have a pretty ridiculous false-negative rate.

Many of the shortages are artificial in nature. At this point, it would appear that more people are hoarding products because they don't want to be left with nothing after other people buy them up. Initial concerns may have been more strongly related to people thinking they should stock up on everything they may need in order to reduce potential for exposure by not leaving their homes for regular groceries. Now, it's less about the virus itself and more about making sure you're not cut off from supplies because so many other people are hoarding more than they actually need.

Retailers (save for the workers on the ground) aren't as upset about this as you might think. Now they get to increase profits without huge increases to their unit costs (they may be paying more for expedited delivery and scaling production, but the latter has a limited impact on unit cost as time goes on), and places like eBay and Amazon are banning small-time entrepreneurs attempting to compete by reselling. (Don't get me wrong, I don't support smalltime scalpers selling sanitary products at absurd prices, but it's quite apparent that those at small and large scales are taking advantage of the situation for financial gain.)

Of course, if they do jack up prices, people may be less inclined to hoard obscene amounts of the stuff.

Factor out (-1) from some negative number. The cube root of that number is given by the product of the cube root of (-1) and the cube root of the absolute value of that negative number.

The same can be generalized for the nth root. In your question, the square root.

The difference lies in the fact that the cube root of -1 yields -1, which remains real. The square root of negative 1 is i.

Hey guys, shortly before joining this site my friend told me that a user by the name of BattoV2 was making inappropriate comments.

If this is the case, then they were most likely banned. (With their content, including those inappropriate comments, deleted.)

Google currently has some cached results for a "Batto2" on this site, but that's about it.

In principle, yes, but not without heavy modifications to get all the voltages you need. May as well just use a legit 20/24 pin connector on an actual PSU, since you'd just be going back there anyways.

(There are some exceptions, including certain SFF systems using mini-STX motherboards.)

It can be tempting to assign disproportionate value to a downvote or two. With any system with voting like this, my advice is to treat one or two upvotes or downvotes as nothing more than noise. You'll never know why a random drive-by downvote occurs. A lot of times at person could simply be having a bad day, or they didn't like the way you phrased something or spelled a word.

There are a lot of arbitrary reasons to vote, and if there (sic) only one or two, it shouldn't hold much more importance than noise.
