Hey guys!

I've been looking into things alot recently(first post! Though long time reader :pt1cable: ) and will post more very soon, no doubt... but I wanted to ask...

Would the Seasonic S12II-520 520W be enough power for either an Amd6300, or the 8320? But, not only at stock, but at being Oc'ed aswell?(hoping it will be enough with the quality of the Psu...) Anyhows thanks for any advice and replies!

Well it depends on the rest of your system (mainly the GPU) but if you aren't overclocking that should be enough power. And Seasonic is a great choice anyway!

Hey! Yea, I wanted to ask mainly If my options were open to being able Oc the 6300/8320 much with it. I'm currently trying to put together a rig. I was looking into the Asus m5a97 Evo R2.0 possibly... just on a bit of a budget at the minute, and trying my best to put something together.

So the seasonic will be fine to Oc even the 8320, with a high powered gpu? I was worried it might be on the border, and hoping it would be fine. :p 


It's 3.30 a.m here, going to have to pass out, I shall return tomorrow! Thanks for the replies so far though guys!

Because of its quality it will be fine here is an example overclocked I7 4960X computer total system load with R9 280X (7970GHz) Total system load under stress test less than 400watts http://www.anandtech.com/show/7400/the-radeon-r9-280x-r...

Hey rolli!, that's good to know. I was worried the 520w version wouldn't have enough juice to Oc the 8320 (with the 125tdp+oc) and the next seasonic up (620) I couldn't reach when trying to build this, with a small budget. So this would be the choice of psu then (was looking at XFX too, but wanted to try for seasonic).

The XFX 550watt is made by Seasonic so if that saves you money it is a good choice as well.

Hey! Yea I first went for the XFX 550, but started reading about not great RMA/customer service&found the Seasonic 520 at £60 (£10 more) So thought I'd try for that with such a small increase in cost, thank you for all this advice rolli!
