Gotcha, but honestly, don't worry too much. Go for mild overclocks at first an study what the hardware can support. I5's for example shouldn't get voltage higher than 1.5 ever, and I don't like anything over 1.4 on air. Also watch the temps, 95c is tj max, but I don't like anything much over the mid 70's.

Other than that, you really can't mess anything up. Just remember that bsod' s and lockups are a part of the deal when trying to get a stable

*edit
Forgot to mention, a mild overclock to me would be anything 4.5 and below. Usually with the i5 you can just set the multi to 40-42 without changing anything else and be stable. Try that and run a prime blend for a couple hours and see how it goes.

Remember BSODs are good. I'm being truthful too about this.

Yup, all information is good. Learn to read the error codes and their probable meanings as well. Good call!

Check this thread for recommendations. Also, perhaps look at this one first to see how much power you need.

Also, the Seasonic you have now ought to work fine.

700W anything Corsair I would always trust them.

As far as PSU's are concerned you can't really go wrong with Corsair, Seasonic, or nice Antec's.

might go for the Corsair AX850. As long as its not noisy. And not sure if you guys know about the OCZ vertex 3 issues, not to change the topic but, i notice that everyday when i turn on my PC, i get a BSOD like at least 10 - 20 minutes the first time i turn it on, this happens everyday. After that, i never get a BSOD again until i use it the next day. When im finished with the comp for the day, i shutdown my PC and then cut the power from the power board. I started to think about it, because it was always the same pattern, everytime i turn off the power board, and turn it on again the next day, i would get a BSOD from the 1st time i turn it on. Then it would reboot and wouldn't happen anymore. Could this be because of my power supply? that it doesn't produce enough power to power my PC the first time i turn it on? like warming up of a car engine analogy for e.g.
