Re: C530 Upgrade GPU Card

Before I upgraded to RTX2070 I also used the PSU Calculator of Be Quiet website just to be sure. Mine is 450w bronze so i think it is possible up to 2080. Not sure on AMD gpus though, they require more power than Nvidias.

Re: C530 Upgrade GPU Card

I just upgraded my c530 with an rx 5700 xt. It looks and handles great. The only problem is that you have to upgrade your psu. I went with corsair sf600 platinum.

Re: C530 Upgrade GPU Card

Sick bro, How is the fan placement / power cable placement with the new PSU. Does it line up with the stock 3 pin hole?

No, it does not! There are other models that do.

Re: C530 Upgrade GPU Card

I noticed that you have tons of plug ins at the back... did you change your motherboard already? If so, what model did you choose and how did you cut the back panel of the case to insert the back panel cover of the board?

Re: C530 Upgrade GPU Card

I used a poor dremel. Any mini itx motherboard will work. I went for the z390i aorus pro wifi.

Re: C530 Upgrade GPU Card

I knew it! Planning on upgrading the board and cpu as well, but sometime soon after warranty expires. Did you upgrade your CPU as well? I use the same cpu cooler but added another fan for extra push. How's your temp on your gpu and cpu?

Re: C530 Upgrade GPU Card

Well, i did not replace the cpu. I will do it next year. For the moment the i5 8400 will be ok. I am leaning towards the 9700k, or the next gen i7, if it will pe compatible with the socket on the motherboard. The temps are ok. On the Cpu i could not pass 60° in gaming, and the gpu is cooler than i thought- around 70° C.  I did not overcloacked it yet. It is on default.
