Enough power?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok, so i would like to overclock my CPU. it is the phenom x4 965 BE. I have a 750 watt PSU and i have a ATI radeon 6870. Would that leave me enough room to OC successfully or should i upgrade my PSU?

WHICH 750 PSU do you have? If it's a decent one (Antec, Corsair, Enermax, Seasonic) then you have plenty of power. If it's some junky coolmax, then no, you don't.

well this is embarrasing, i just opened it up, and its 700watt, not 750, and its a xion PSU.

Well, assuming that's the Power-Real 700w, then it will actually do the listed outputs, it's a superflower built unit. It'll run what you have, but the voltage regulation and ripple suppression is not the best, not by a long shot. You have the power to overclock, but that PSU may make your life un-necessarily difficult while doing so.

Look over this review right here from JonnyGuru to see all you need to know (and more) about your PSU.

It will work but the voltages will be up and down i recommend a TX-650w over that one much better PSU or a Antec TPN650
