The PC P&C unit that he linked in the other link is a great one. That would be my choice out of the ones linked here. Fullmetalx June 16, 2012 11:28:20 PM Okay cool I think I'll go with the PC P&C one. Its 500W. Should it be able to hand me potentially unlocking the 6950 to a 6970 and maybe over locking my CPU a bit? DJDeCiBeL a c 76 ) Power supply a b À AMD June 16, 2012 11:33:19 PM If you do both and OC to the hilt on both, it would be cutting a bit too close for me, but it should work just fine for just a CPU OC and the 6950 as it is. Not sure you'll be able to unlock anyway (I think I remember reading somewhere that the newer 6950's CAN'T be unlocked), so that may not even be an issue. Fullmetalx June 16, 2012 11:36:07 PM Alright then, thanks for the help! Ordering now. rolli59 a c 493 ) Power supply a c 170 À AMD June 16, 2012 11:46:49 PM Read through the reviews and some of the bad ones should not even be there. I trust jonnyguru's reviews better than user reviews on Newegg http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=... PC P&C is currently an OCZ company.
