Tags: Overclocking Last response: December 31, 2010 2:22 PM in Overclocking Share rambostyrer December 30, 2010 4:53:27 PM I'm considering overclocking my athlon II x3 435 and try to unlock the fourth core, together with my HD 4850 gpu, Was wondering if my PSU is powerfull enough to handle this. my psu is a Corsair vx 450 the rest of my system is a follows: Mobo Asrock 890fx deluxe3 4 (2+2) gb kingston hyperx ddr3 1333 ram harddrive: spinpoint 1gb stock cooler on cpu unknown case, but it is crap! Benchmark and stress tests: primne 95 furmark pc wizrd 2010 and finally, what temperatures is recomended for my cpu and gpu, before it gets too hot?

Overclocking doesn't add all that much to the power load, and you have a good quality PSU so you should be just fine.
