Hello, there.

I really need some support from you guys!
I'm considering putting yet another HD 5850 in my machine for crossfire, and OC my CPU.

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.40 GHz (Black Edition)
GFX: HD 5850 (OC from start)
PSU: Cougar 700 W
RAM: 12 GB DDR3 1333MHZ KINGSTON RAM

As I wrote I wanna hear you guys out if it is possible to throw in another HD 5850 and OC my PSU.

Thank you in advance.

Try a brand like Corsair, Antec or Seasonic, they make good PSUs.

Based on that review it's not something I would go out and buy, but it's not something that I would go out and replace if I already had it, unless you are having specific problems with it.

Obviously the voltage regulation could be better but it is in spec.

It certainly has enough power for a system with two 5850s. The distribution of the 12V rails doesn't look like it's a problem either.

I agree with Silvune your psu should be fine to power another 5850.

Cougar actually have about 7/8 different 700W PSUs, so it would be helpful to know which model Mokkalokka has.

Thanks for the replies. Well, the thing is that I bought my computer as a final product - so I do not know the specific details about the PSU, other than the ones I wrote. How would I be able to check what model I have in my machine? :)

You would have to open the case up and try to find the label on the PSU.
