AX650 good enough for this?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
M5A99X evo
EVGA GTX 670 FTW
FX-4170 (I am aware of the downsides, lets not discuss this)
8gb corsair vengeance

Would the AX650 be enough, and if so, would it leave me with some overclocking headroom? I know the FX-4170 can be a little power hungry

More than enough. The FX41xx are more efficient than the Phenoms, the 81xx are a bit on the hungry side. Go for it! smile.gif

More than enough. I've seen an i5 3570k clocked to 4.6 GHz with a GTX 670 with a 450W Silverstone PSU.

The PSU has enough juice to even warrant a 81xx overclock with your components. But I haven't seen much 41xx reach 5GHz, you got a good chip I guess. biggrin.gif

Alright, good to know.
Always boggles my mind how components can become more powerful and more energy efficient at the same time. PC parts use less power now than my rig did 5 years ago.. amazing

Damn right! It's awesome. Granted, running a setup like the one I described on a 450W power supplies implies the PSU is a very efficient, high-end unit. (tip: never skimp on a PSU anyway)

Yer, I would never skimp on a power supply. My 650TX started going faulty on whatever rail supplies molex, case fans stopped spinning or were spinning at very low RPMs. Swapped to my old Silverstone Olympia 650 (best psu I've ever owned) which has over 25,000 hours clocked on and still runs like a champ. Not sure what caused the corsair to fail, but I suspect it was the constant brown outs we get here. Moving in a week, so unless my O650 fails from brownouts in the next week, shouldn't be a problem!
