Need some help and review! THANKS!

Thread Starter 
Hey everyone!

Currently my rig is as below:

i5-3570K 4.2 Ghz (trying to hit 4.5 Ghz) + Corsair H80
MSI Z77A-GD65
1 x MSI 6870 Twin Frozr II/OC edition + 1 x Sapphire 6870 (Crossfire)
4 x 4 GB Corsair Vengance 1600 Mhz
OCZ ModXtreme 700W 80+
1TB WD Black HDD
500GB Hitachi HDD
Corsair Carbide 400R (Total 8 fans mounted)


Do i need a bigger PSU in order to push my OC higher? Or im able to hit 4.5 Ghz with the current setting.
Kindly do review about my build.

Still kinda new to OCN.

No, that PSU is plenty of power for what you have listed.

Yep, you'll be fine.

The most important thing is to have good cooling, which you do thumb.gif

Guys! If i plan to add on an 256GB SSD PLEXTOR, is it still working just fine?

Yea it should work, but if you do, it is recommended to do a clean install of your OS to prevent any problems (like I had)
