Is my 600w power supply enough to overclock my fx-8120?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Take a look at my current rig.

I'm planning on getting a water cooler on my cpu to get it at least 4.5 stable. I'm wondering with the way I have both my cpu and gpu overclocked if I'm reaching a power limit now, or if I will with my proposed overclock. Currently everything runs fantastic BUT I also haven't encountered a program that maxes my cpu and gpu at the same time, so I can't very well test if I'm losing performance.

Anyways, is my power supply strong enough? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated smile.gif
