New Build - PSU and FX-8320 Question - Page 3

post #21 of 23
The Corsair CX430 isn't very good when considering overclocking. I burnt one up by overclocking my 965 on 1.5v on the CPU and 1.3v on the CPU-NB. How many watts that was consuming? I don't know. The total system load shouldn't have been over 300w (I think.... don't know since I wan't using a kill-a-watt to give me a good guess). The only thing I had was the bare bones you need to log into W7 (MB, CPU, PSU, close loop water cooling/H80i & SSD). I would love it for stock purposes and I would buy one again. I just wouldn't use it for overclocking.

If you want the CX line get the 600w version for $50. Of course, you most likely could find better for that price.

You need to do some research. This is at the wall. 202 watts and subtract the 80% efficiency PSU. Which equal around 180 watts.
