Is a TR2 600w thermal take power supply good enough for over clocking intel i7 4770k and powering radeon r9 270x graphics card

I was just wondering if a TR2 600w thermal take power supply is good enough for over clocking intel i7 4770k and powering a radeon r9 270x graphics card. If you have any suggestions of upgrading my power supply or graphics card, please let me know. My motherboard is a gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD5H and my cpu cooler is going to be a corsair h100i dual 120mm fan. Another question I have is if I should replace the stock fans that come with that cpu cooler.

    THi and welcome to Tom's forum.

    I am using a similar model for run a 1090T @ 3.8GHz plus a GTX 680 Lightning, so, I would thing that you have enough power for run the rig BUT I would recommend look for a better brand. Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, XFX are excellent brand and try to go a little more higher 750W or better.
  2. Made by the best SEASONIC.

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    Power Supply: XFX 650W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($64.99 @ NCIX US)
    Total: $64.99

    What about the graphics card? Do you think it's good enough for streaming with the overclocked cpu?
  4. Well, personally I would go with a i7-3770k + r9-280x. The difference in performance between 3770k and 4770k isn't big for spend a little more in your CPU and motherboard.
