Solved OC PSU Tags: Intel i5 Overclocking Last response: August 25, 2012 8:27 PM in Overclocking Share R3alityzzzzz August 25, 2012 2:15:58 PM Hello Lads, A simple question: do You need a better PSU for OC needs? I want to OC my i5-3570K and ASUS DCII GTX 670. I have a THERMALTAKE SMART PSU 630W 12CM 80+WHITE. Is that enough for OC? Thanks in advance!

Thermaltake is not the most recommended OEM but some of their PSUs are decent. The Toughpower lineup is okay but I'm not sure about the Smart lineup. m 0 l Best solution k1114 a b K Overclocking August 25, 2012 3:27:16 PM http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermaltake-Smar...
