First Gaming Build NEED HELP!!!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I posted something like this before, but I'm posting again because I'm going to overclock my CPU, and I'm not sure how much Watts I need for the PSU. So here's the part list (the reason I didn't use PCPartPicker is because I'm currently in Singapore, not U.S.):

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4Ghz
CPU Cooler: N/A
Motherboard: MSi Z87-G43 Gaming
GPU: MSi GTX 770 Twin Frozer OC Edition
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws.X 2133Mhz (2X4GB)
Storage: WD Caviar Black 1TB 64MB Cache
Case: Zalman Z9 U3
ODD: Samsung 24X SuperWriteMaster
Others: Aerocool Shark 120mm Red Edition X 2
Aerocool Shark 140mm Red Edition

I won't be overclocking soon, but when I do I'm planning to overclock it to at least 4.0Ghz. Now, I wasn't sure how many watts I need for the build with a Overclocked CPU, so I'm in quite a trouble.

Any suggestions for the PSU? Also, if possible any suggestions for a good CPU cooler (for the future)?

Thanks in Advance biggrin.gif

4.0Ghz on the 4670k is very do-able and not a nightmare to achieve.
The GTX 770 requirements : " 600 watt or greater power supply with a minimum of 42 amps on the +12 volt rail ". Since you are not in the US, I do not think I would be able to know what is the reasonable price range of the power supplies at where you are able to get them. I would recommend a power supply with around 600 watts. my brother is running a very similar system specs as yours with a 650w power supply.

Regarding CPU coolers... i am guessing you want to get an air cooler... the CM Hyper 212 evo is a decent place to start since its a decent budget cooler... but there are many other choices that can be better but obviously more costly. again i am not sure what type of inventory is available at your country.

I hope this is useful information and gives you an idea of what you should be looking for.

Do you think Corsair RM650 is a good PSU? Its USD135 here (converted it).

From the looks of it, yes its a decent power supply [ BUT ] after reading THIS THREAD the RM series might not be the one to buy. you can read through the thread i linked to see why its not the one to buy.
