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


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


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
