Yeah, then again. Its a different PSU that I used compared to this post. I unfortunately had a bad experience with it, im not saying everyone will have the same experience. Far as I know, this could be better than my one, but we'll see :)
Thanks for all this! I actually bit the bullet on the one I linked a couple of comments back and so far so good. Very, very quiet but I guess only time will tell how well it holds up, also got a 10 year warranty so should be sorted in that regard. I've got a 100w buffer over the recommended anyway so we'll see! :D
I have, unfortunately I didn't really like it. i had the Gigabyte B700H and the issue that made me want to return it was a high pitch noise that came from the power supply. Before that, I was using a Corsair VS550 which was a lot quieter and everytime the PC switched on the power supply fan ramped up to full speed for a couple seconds and went back to normal. but mainly i returned it because of that high pitch noise which i was able to hear through my headphones. I personally would suggest the one I am using right now; Corsair RM750x, 10 year warranty, 100% Japanese capacitors and almost slient operation. I wouldn't neccesairly say its due to bias but I think you should really go for Corsair power supplys, they have done me good for a long time, and £30 corsair power supply has lasted for more than 3 years. IMO, its not really worth saving a few quid for this, I'd rather go for a company that is good for power supplies which is Corsair, I know people may have different experiences and I am not speaking on behalf of everyone, But i'm telling you my experiences with it and my opinion. As this is different to the one I had, it could be a lot different to the one I had, but its hard to tell.
Loads of people on PCPartPicker are running 3700x with 3080's (non FE) on 650w, so the 3070 should do fine on 650. The whole 'recommended power' thing got blown out of proportion for the 3000 cards imo. I've been running a overclocked 3700x and overclocked RTX 2080 super on a 500w XFX power supply for over a year now, and I bought that PSU back in 2012 lol
I use a Ryzen 3700x and a 3090 FE on a Corsair RM750 Watt. I think you would be fine with this PSU in honesty.
