Go HERE for a PSU wattage calculator: http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp . Be as specific as you can. Use the following settings in there:

Motherboard: High End Desktop
CPU TDP - 90%
System Load - 90%
Capacitor Aging - Leave blank as "Select"

My sig rig uses 550W and I have a 750W PSU which I bought partially because I want to have 2 working PSUs in case one fails. Both my 550W and 750W work equally fine as tested through stressing and benching and gaming.

That said, please tell us what the BSOD code is (the first one at the bottom, usually looks like 0x0000000124 or something like that, and is not within parantheses). You'll need to set options in Windows so that the computer doesn't automatically reboot after the memory dump, because that often makes it realyl hard to see what the error code is in time. You can also go to Control Panel -> Event Viewer -> Administrative Events and check the Error message there. I think it says Kernel-power or something along that line.

Finally, do not use the auto tune function. If you want to OC you should research a little bit about the CPU but really its not very hard. Getting to 4.5ghz is a piece of cake but there's still a few things you need to know before getting started. We can help you a lot better once you know the basics.


There is no such thing as an overkill PSU. Anything you get that is rated over what you have is just being future proof.

Your Seasonic 620w will run circles around that rig, hell a quality 550w would run it, it's more than enough and anyone who tells you it's not is badly misinformed.
you said 700w is not enough for his rig and all im saying is that 700w is more than enough for a single card. anymore than what I mentioned above is not future proofing, it's wasting money, however, if he did decide to go for SLI he would need a 850w PSU, if he wanted to go for TRI SLI, he would need to change his mobo and his PSU to a 1200w, so where do you draw the line to this 'future proofing', meh no such thing.

I sometimes recommend getting a PSU that can allow for atleast one more major upgrade like going from a single card to SLI but sometimes people don't want that and they are fine with one card, but that doesn't mean that it will need a 700w+ PSU. All single cards with the exception of dual gpu cards can be run on a quality 550w with headroom.

Exactly future proofing.

your not getting it! future proofing for what? has the OP indicated that he wants SLI or TRI SLI? no, but you said:

your wrong, a quality 500w PSU would do it fine.

You also missed the part where I said "where do you draw the line on this future proofing?"

Agreed that his psu is more than enough for his current setup.

How do you know the OP will never upgrade to a heavier rig? This is OCN the Pursuit of Performance is never enough.

I think the point is that you told him he needed more, when in fact he doesn't to run his current setup. Not sure when future proofing entered the conversation, but I really don't see how it's helpful given the questions the OP is asking.

Its not like I said get a 1000W or anything. All I said was just go to a 700W or higher. The future proofing part came in when it was mentioned. I was simply thinking of the long run.

there was no need to and you mentioned that it wasn't enough for his current rig, there is a big difference between that and thinking future proofing.

Yeah, but what you said was that his current one wasn't enough, which is not true. Not trying to argue with you man, just making a point. The guy didn't ask about future proofing, and I didn't want to confuse the issue for him. He has enough on his plate with his first overclock.
