hi, i was wondering if i could overclock my fx8120 around 3.6 or 3.8 with my CM hyper 412 cooler and a regular (B-move) 500w..
along with these specs
16gb (2x8) kingston hyper x
2 500GB 7200rpm HD
should i upgrade the power supply? i'm planning to buy the NOX Urano VX 650W this week, is it enough? i don't have cash to spend more so i'm looking for cheaper but a better fit to my specs to overclock..and btw what do you mean by "the motherboard is barely acceptable"? sorry for being noobs..
It's not so much a matter of "enough", it's a matter of quality. I don't know that Nox Urano VX, but I doubt it's of acceptable quality. A Corsair CX500 or similar is probably the cheapest I would recommend.
The motherboard doesn't have the most robust voltage regulators, so for a power-hungry CPU like the 8120 you wouldn't want to overclock too much.
