    vs 650w corsair has the power to run your specs. dont worry.it isnt the best unit corsair can offer but it is surely enough. just go easy on overclocking, if you decide to do so.!
  2. @chris987 thanks mate..... Here lies the problem I need to overclock CPU atleast upto 4.2ghz ... So will vs650w able to handle it.... Iam planning on getting hyper 212 evo

    ''go easy on overclocking'' includes a boost at 4.2ghz. just keep it there. the same applies to your gpu, just dont try to squeeze every possible Mhz out of it.!
  4. So can I go upto 4.2ghz with this PSU.... No plan on overclocking gpu....
  5. Hi Avionblues
    The GeForce GTX 780 requires 42A on the +12v rail and a 600W PSU minimum
    check the power conumption for your CPU - i5 4670k when overclocked

    unfortunately it doesn't show 4.2ghz OC but i would inmagine it would be up around 160 watts under load
    you may be pushing it
    The corsair VS has low grade capacitors and no the best of PSU's
    I would suggest for peace of mind and some headroom get a 750watt or thereabouts PSU from seasonix/xfx or any psu
    form corsair's TX,HX or AX range of PSU's or any psu from coolermasters Vseries or any psu from the EVGA supernova series
    all of these have high grade japanese capacitors

    Intel Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition 4.60 GHz on all cores / GeForce GTX 780
    System Wattage with GPU in FULL Stress ~ 350W

    your VS 650 has an 600w capable 12v rail, so you arent actually stressing it to the limit. you are within a safe zone. it isnt such quality psu but that isnt a reason to buy a new one.
  7. yep, it is capable and no need for an upgrade as of yet.
  8. So it is basically safe to overclock it at 4.2 GHz with vs650......
  9. yes, enjoy!
  10. For overclocking CPU at 4.2ghz and my case being elite 311 ..... Is hyper 212 EVO good option
  11. yes, that'll keep that CPU at great temps when overclocking that CPU. There is no reason why it shouldn't fit either.
  12. The hyper 212 evo should work fine for you , your case supports coolers tp to 160mm in height , the 212 evo is 159mm so its a just fit
  13. Thanks guys You all helped me very generously.....
    U all actually solved my various issues.... Thanks to each and everyone
  14. you are most welcome , hope it all goes well for you , all the best
  15. glad i've been of assistance! you are welcome!
  16. Just one last query I reach around 65-75 c temps on all cores while playing game(majorily black flag,watch dogs,bf4)...safe or not ??.. Its said hasswell could handle temps upto 90+ and then will throttle ..... But still is it decent temp?

    well 75c is a bit high but still safe for 24/7 . higher than 80c is really acceptable only under stress test. stock cooler arent that good. ensure you have sufficient tower airflow. also you could reapply a better thermal paste but thats really not needed if you are getting a cm 212 evo
  18. Yeah I think ill be getting 212 EVO....
    What should be the safe temp,stable temp and concerning temps for cpu while gaming and idle?(at stock cooler and EVO also)
  19. idle below 40 degrees, gaming below 70 degrees and you should be fine, these are an average, leverage for temps is ok in either direction.
