    1000W psu needed for fx 9370?


      Is a 1000w psu needed for fx 9370?


      I have found this quote in online communities:

      "Your choices for the 9000 series:

      ASRock 990FX Extreme9
      Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z
      Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0
      Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0
      Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
      Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5
      Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7
      MSI 990FXA-GD80V2


      Warning: This power draw of this CPU is almost twice that of the average CPU. Due to this, AMD recommends using at minimum a 1000W power supply. For cooling, AMD recommends using either either closed loop liquid cooling or full system liquid cooling."


      But I dont find the source for it on AMD.com


      Is this a official requirement?


      I bought a package with cx750w psu and fx 9370 cpu and after Reading this I Think my parts may not be compatible and I want to change the parts but the store dont want to give me full refund because they say 750w is fine with this cpu
