Will 500W be enough ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello !

I would like to know your opinion about PSU. Will 500W PSU be enough for this build, if I will overclock it to 4.0 GHZ. I'm asking because some say that 600W would be more suited, other that even 500W will be overkill.

Thanks.

A QUALITY 400w would be enough for that build easy .

Yes, easily but make sure you get a good one.

Ask here before you buy it.

Just for a heads up, the voltage for the RAM is bit high (it should be 1.5V). IDK if it will be a real issue but just check out if you can get a lower voltage.

Thanks for advice, I also was thinking about 1.5v so these will fit better

However maybe you could give a link to some good tutorial/ explanation for voltage. Bcz I don't really get the idea about voltage.

Thanks.

He was saying use a kit with lower voltage because Sandy Bridge is rated for ram that runs at 1.5 volts not 1.65. It wouldn't be a bad idea to get ram that runs at 1.5 but you can still use 1.65 kits too. The voltage is the power that is being pumped into the ram (well more specifically it is the pressure at which the power is going into the ram).
