Hight Watts in PSU = better OC?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi experts

Does high Watts in PSU = better OC?

my system :
i7 - 2600k
EVGA GTX 460 1gb SuperClock (dont plan to run SLI)
8G G skill ram PC1600
GIGABYTE GA-P67A-D3-B3 LGA or GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3-B3
1 kingston SSD drive
Hyper 212 plus

from http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp, even i oc the CPU to 4.7G, i will need about 390 Watts

Do i need at least 600W to get stable OC system or i need a high quality Asus P67 MB too?

Either of those 2 PSU seems give me good enough power?

No.



Higher quality PSU = maybe better OC.

Both of those PSUs are fine, a 550W (or even 500W) PSU will do great for that build as long as it's well-built.

For recommendations, I'd check here. But like I said, both of those PSUs will perform fine.

Also, take those system specs and put them into your system signature in your User CP. That way, you won't have to list them out every time you need help. And welcome to OCN!

Thanks you, Phaedrus2129 and 5outh

which PSU is better. OCZ Fatal1ty OCZ550FTY is on sale and got 30 more W. but Antec is a better brand?

The Antec is better built and a better performer, a SeaSonic S12II. The OCZ is an ok Sirfa unit.

To be honest you would do fine with the 400W version of the NeoECO.

Yeah that should do it, though it's almost the same thing. However, it's only really a good deal if you send in the rebate.
