PSU upgrade on lenovo c530 ; RTX 3000 series

2020-09-02, 8:27 AM

Hi,

 

I currently have a 450W PSU on my Lenovo C530. I've upgraded the CPU and GPU from the factory, added some RAM, and am now running close to 380-400W (i calculated it). I want to upgrade my GPU again in the near future and for that i need to replace the PSU. 

 

I really love the case design, and I'm someone who lives here for a month, there for a month, etc, for work so a compact gaming system is important for me. I wanna keep this case and future-proof the PSU, so im looking at a 850W-ish PSU upgrade so i dont have to upgrade every couple of years. I do know that there is no cutout on the back panel for a PSU on off-switch. 

 

  1. does anyone know a PSU in the 850W-1000W range (ideally a modular system; price is not really a factor) that fits into the C530 and has no on-off switch? Even if if there is a switch, it wouldnt be a huge issue, I do have have the necessary tools to cut a small portion of the back panel out, i would just prefer not to

 

 

Thanks a lot for your help!

 

 

PS : do you think the new RTX 3080 will fit into the case? Purely from a size perspective? Im pretty sure width-wise it's ok but length-wise the RTX 3080 is 285mm long, and I'm not sure it would fit.

Im going to try and upgrade to the RTX 3080. I back ordered a Fractal Design Ion+ 760P 80 PLUS Platinum. We'll see if it actually comes. Apparently this design will work with the c730 (I think the cases of the c530 and c730 are the same?). https://www.newegg.com/fractal-design-ion-fd-psu-ionp-760p-bk-760w/p/N82E16817580023 This thread shows someone who installed a similar PSU: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Gaming-Desktops/Lenovo-Legion-C730-Power-Supply-Unit-PSU-replacement/m-p/4560790?page=1 As far as the RTX 3080 fitting. I hope so lol. Seems like the length will fit if you remove the existing holder of your GPU. I have a 2080. Need about 2 cm since the 2080 is 267 mm.

Thanks for the advice! I'll try to mount a modular SFX PSU (with SFX to AFX bracket) that I have lying around, just to see if it fits. If it does, I'll order the upcoming coolermaster sfx 850W and if it doesnt, I'll go for the PSU you recommend! Also, absolutely let us know if tje RTX 3080 does fit!
