can i overclock?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
so dumbly i bought a pre-made pc that is junk and now that i have figured that out im upgrading to a new case and stuff. the cpu is nice i have a 6300. im getting a radeon hd 7950 for my gpu and im wondering if i can overclock the radeon hd 7950 and fx 6300 with a corsair cx500. i know id need fans and a new cpu cooler which i have. my friend thats helping says he has a 750w silence mkii but he is not sure about the cx 500 so im asking here. thanks!

500W would be more than enough at stock, so you should be able to get a decent OC, just not a crazy one. So I think you would be fine with your CX500, especially since upgrading it wouldn't be worth it at all.

the 6300 with a decent cooler can hit 4.3ghz easy, but i would not recommend pushing much higher unless you have a good cooler and can keep the temps down. i have my 6300 at 4.5ghz, i can go higher but have no need. as for the new gpu i have nothing to offer as i do not have one or know someone who has one. sorry.
