Seasonic 620w modular unit from newegg.com. 69 bucks I think. They make the best on the market. I use them in the workstations I sell because they are super reliable and stable under load, quiet too. They cost a bit more, but its worth it.

Yes as long as you use aftermarket cooler, the overclock is different with all chips.
