  1. Hello resetovs1;
    Your OEM Phenom II X3 720BE CPU is missing a CPU cooler. COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus is a good option if you plan to overclock.
  2. I had to double check your PSU. Some Cooler Master PSUs aren't that great.
    But the Silent Pro M 600W seems to be the 'real deal' as this Hardware Secrets review shows.
  3. thanks!
    i see it's a bit cheaper on overstock and provantage...

    do you think 600w is enough? someone was telling me to go at least 650w to be safe
  4. Yes I think it's plenty. In fact it's more than enough for 2x 5770 in CF, easily. Lots of capacity to add stuff in the case, extra HDDs, a SSD, Blu-Ray drive, etc.
