How old is that Cooler master Extreme Power PSU?
And is that the full & correct model name?

Then the model I listed is probably the one you have.
It's data plate lists 52Amps +12V power which should do nicely.


But some CM PSUs are known to have trouble living up to the data plate specs.
Here is one reason we're concerned.

Centre Com for Gamers spec sheet for that PSU is wrong.
Efficiency is 80% and it has a single 12V 'rail'.

It's not just having 2x PCI-e power connectors. There are ways around that shortage.
I just have concerns that PSU might not be able to output its full rated power in all conditions, like the 600W model.

I'll look around for a decent PSU on that site.
Have you ever worked with the pccasegear.com website?

Everyone IS a 'merican of course. ;) 

XFX ProSeries 650W Core Edition
53Amp +12V power and 2 x 6-Pin, 2 x 6+2-Pin power connectors.
right amount of power and right amount of connectors.

i would say no your psu needs more grunt... and more 6 pin connectors...
the above cosair unit is nice but i prefer a little more headroom so i would get a 750w model...

Well thanks for the help, my current psu is *** for cable managment and its just not good enough so im gonna look for a good quality 750 wat or even ill just go complete overkill and get like 1000W so i dont have to worry if have enough power later on because i upgrade regulary. Im gonna buy that next month because im buying an ssd on friday
