Best PSUs for AMD Ryzen 9 3900X Windows Central 2020
AMD’s Ryzen 9 3900X requires considerable amounts of power, so too does the rest of a PC build. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite power supply units (PSU) that offer great value and reliability.
Choosing the right PSU is important
As aforementioned, you should never save too much money on your PSU. It’s what supplies stable power to the entire PC. If you pick up an unreliable unit from an unknown brand, you run the risk of it failing and (worst-case scenario) taking a few components — like your valuable Ryzen 9 3900X — with it.
This is why we recommend only tried and tested PSUs, like the 650W EVGA SuperNOVA P2, which may be a little on the expensive side, but you get a killer PSU that will last years and has enough capacity for a single GPU enthusiast build. This PSU also comes with a 7-year warranty.
If you’re after a smarter PSU, the E500 from NZXT and Seasonic is a solid choice for those who prefer to check statistics and make sure everything is running within desired parameters. All you need is a free USB 2.0 internal header on your motherboard. A 10-year warranty comes with this PSU.
