C 530 GPU Upgrade

2020-07-20, 0:42 AM

I have asked this question before but haven't received enough answers. I have a C530 with RX 570 and a 450 W power supply, but I'm looking to upgrade my GPU to a RTX 2060 super. I found one that is a blower style so that I can have better ventilation in the case(I've put the link below). The current RX 570 uses a 6 pin connector and the RTX one will need an 8 pin. The current PSU cable has both 8 pin and  6 pin connectors. Will I be able to use that 8 pin to power the RTX 2060 super? If not, will I be able to use a 6 pin to 8 pin adapter to power it.

8 pin should work fine. Blower model is smart since heat swirling will throttle you down. Seems it may be popluar here for folks to upgrade power supply but if you calcualte it out it's really not needed. Opened up my case after some months expecting to see dust but its very clean inside.

Yea, in a case that small a blower style GPU is almost necessary.

So I wouldn't need to change the PSU and it should be fine right?
