  1. this cpu cannot oc it
  2. what do you mean oc ?
  3. i have read some topic , you can't oc but you can squeeze few mhz right ?
  4. i know this is off topic but you dont need an 800 watt psu
  5. You can only overclock by raising the BClock, which also regulates the clocks for PCI express and IO hubs. Not really worth it IMHO. With 800 Watts you could get like a USB toaster or hairdryer.

    hahahah... thnx guys , can someone tell me what psu should i buy? for my pc ?
  7. You can raise it to around 103-105 max on the base clock for a very small overclock but that is all.
  8. 800w is overkill. You can probably get away with 400-500w PSU. i3 can only OC the integrated GPU not the CPU. I put together a 'business' use system for my brother using the same CPU and using a 400w PSU.
