Currently, I have a Corsair SF600. Do you think this will be enough for a 3080 along with my 10700 (non-K)? My initial thoughts are that it should be seeing as the card shouldn't draw more than 350W and the CPU never more than 150W or so. The only other things I have in the setup are a M.2 drive and a tower HSF.

Realistically, the only other option right now is the Silverstone 700W SFX platinum. The Corsair SF750 is about as hard to find at MSRP as a 3080.

It's not the average full power that is the problem, but massive spikes. If it's in good condition, it'll probably do fine. If you're on the edge, you can probably underclock/undervolt a bit with an unnoticeable reduction of FPS.

It's practically brand new. I just picked it up over the summer. I'll probably roll with it unless I have issues. No need to spend $175 for no reason.

I'm in the same boat as you. Been looking for an SF750 for months.

Thankfully, the results with the SF600 look promising:

If you haven't seen it, Hardware Canucks used our SX700-PT (700W 80 PLUS Platinum) for a SFF build
Awesome, didn't realize Silverstone had SFX PSUs now. I assumed they were still SFX-L. Will have to check the SX700-PT out.

Sad to hear this, that means our marketing is doing a poor job! SilverStone has more SFX PSU models in its lineup than any other brand in the world!

Could just be my subconscious since my last Silverstone PSU was a SFX-L model. Currently in the market for something with a little more power to replace my SF600. SF750 is sold out everywhere and I wasn't aware of the SX-700-PT, which looks like a nice little unit. FPS Review seems to think highly of it also.
