Hello,
I just bought the new corsair tx750m modular power supply, will it be able to run a
Intel i7 2600
Gigabyte z68 ud3h b3 mobo
12gb of corsair xms3
Evga 550ti
2tb caviar green
120gb agility3 ssd
Nzxt phantom with another 140mm intake fan
Coolermaster hyper 212 plus
I mainly will use this computer for video editin and light gaming. I do plan on overclocking to 4ghz. Also is it bottlenecking to get this psu with my cpu and gpu? Thanks a lot,

That PSU is MORE than powerfull enough for your settup. (you wont even be using half of its rated power) that psu will last you ages and allow you to upgrade your hardware in the future without any problems.

More than enough. It's actually enough for a healthy OC i5-2500k + gtx 570 in sli .

Good choice too!

BTW

You can't overclock a i7-2600. You need the i7-2600 K model with the unlocked multiplier to overclock. Just sayin'

750w is enough for 560ti x2 OC. What you have would be fine on a 450w. A psu cannot bottleneck anything. And I also noticed you have a triple channel ram kit, you want dual channel (2 or 4 sticks).

You can overclock non-k but only 400mhz over the turbo.

correct me if i'm wrong but you said you bought a modular PSU? afaik the hx series or ax would be modular, you listed the tx which is not a modular PSU.

they are half modular. they have the most common cables coming out then extra room for addition cables as required. so you can buy tx modular PSU

the TXM is like the XFX Pro.

Theyre both semi modular meaning the main connectors such as the 20=4 pin, is hardwired because... well... every motherboard needs it no matter what. The rest of the connectors are like a modular psu.

Hence why its semi-modular

interesting marketing strategy. for a few bucks more can have a fully modular hx...
