Thread Starter 
But I am not OCing the video cards at all, just OCing the CPU right? Not changing voltages atm as I dont know enough.

How can I tell if the PSU is too small? Is there a test I can run on my system to find out? Thing is, I have not noticed anything at all that makes me think something is not right. I am able to run huge 3dmark06 scores and just want to understand more, I have always gone by the saying that if its not broke, dont fix it. As it will cost me at least £150 to fix this, I really want to know if I have to, not just cos they say 750w min. Also, if they say 750w min, 700w is not far off, surely if they say you need 750w, they are allowing for 2 Optical Drives, Floppy Drives, Up to 4 Memory Sticks, Ect. So if I am running GPU @ stock, CPU @ stock voltages but higher FSB/Multi, 1 Optical, No Floppy that 700w will be enough?

I know I seem like I am going over this enough, but I would like to know what are the signs that the PSU is too small?

Thanks

Use this, Power Supply Calculator

Your power supply should not be loaded to 100% of its capacity, and you could run the risk of damaging hardware.
