Your system only has a mild OC on the processor....taking a look at the site you linked a great PSu for around the same price is the Superflower Golden Green 550W: http://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/info/p688894... or the Seasonic S12II-520: http://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/info/p640838... That Superflower is a great PSU and would be my preference. It's 80+ Gold and well reviewed by many reputable sites. The 45A on the 12V rail is more than enough for your build and significant OCs on the CPU and GPU. | Report abuse delluser1 Power supply Master May 22, 2012 8:48:46 PM +1 Those higher wattage Raspberries are cheaper for a reason | Report abuse jwk3 Power supply Expert May 22, 2012 10:46:59 PM Bofink said: Which one of these PSUs should I buy?

The options that Rugger said are much better options. | Report abuse Related ressources URGENT SMPS selection 650w vs 750w - Forum XFX XXX 650W vs .

Any company that uses HEC/Compucase as the OEM for their power supplies suffers from that same stigma. | Report abuse Bofink May 23, 2012 4:08:28 PM Alright, going for the SuperFlower Thanks Rugger for the good post | Report abuse Bofink May 23, 2012 4:08:53 PM Best answer selected by Bofink. | Report abuse Rugger Power supply Master May 23, 2012 8:36:20 PM Glad I could help - ty for the BA. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>PSU: 650W 80+ VS 750W> Related ressources: Forumhttp://www.tomshardware.com/forum/ [...] ended-psus Forumhttp://www.tomshardware.com/forum/ [...] lies-guide Forumhttp://www.tomshardware.com/forum/ [...] ended-psus Forumhttp://www.tomshardware.com/forum/ [...] lies-guide Forum650W or 750W Seasonic Forum250W cheap PSU vs 750W 80 + ForumXFX Pro 850w CE vs Sea Sonic JS 750w Forum750W Showdown: HCG-750 vs TruePower TP-750 vs .
