I was wondering if you guys think my new powersupply will help my OC, It is in the mail currently . It is a FSP 400W, several people here recomended it and it was a good deal. I had an older PSU before this (both are crappy ones that came with cases) and I got around 2.4GHz from 2.0 stock. With the other I couldnt get past 2.2Ghz. I am really hoping this new PSU will do it for me. What do you think?
Think it will help at all with my video card overclock? Thanks, I am excited.

it will only help if you were experiencing unstability caused by the PSU... if there were problems with something else, a new PSU will not fix it...lol

but it is a great deal, good luck with it!

Thanks, it is a win - win situation. I hope it gives me better OCs, but I wont be dissapointed if it doesn't because I was very nervous of the crappy raidmax one that came with the case. Anyway, it is atleast a step in the right direction!

I know it is either the PSU or the MOBO that caused the sudden change in overclockability. (Mobo was repaired by manufactorer at the same time I got the new case and along with it the new powersupply)
