Will this 2500K system be able to run, or is it even possible? - Page 4

post #31 of 34
If it's a Corsair 450W unit it's either the VX 450 or the HX 450, both solid Seasonic made units... it's highly unlikely you'll need a new PSU(all dependent on the VGA you settle with).

It's a Corsair VX btw. I am now done installing the OS and my system works just fine thumb.gif So do you guys think i can do some overclock or not? Should be fine?

Should be perfectly fine!

You could take it slow if you're new in overclocking... biggrin.gif

Maybe so, but electronic circuits don't last forever. One thing that can contribute to component wear is line noise. No one has 100% Clean power anywhere. That's why power filters exist. Plus if everyone had super clean and stable power there would be no need for power conditioners or battery backups. (in a perfect world)

I've had high quality power supplies crap out after being close to their max wattage (both workstation PSU's and redundant server PSU's) after a year or two of continuous use.

The power supply I'm currently running has had zero issues so far, but I know it won't last forever. I do keep all my toys connected to battery backups.

And don't ever say "Stop posting this" when this is the first time I've posted that, anywhere. Don't troll me.

Br professional, thanks.
