How much power is the whole system consuming ?

How much power is my configuration consuming ?
I have a Corsair CX430. I was thinking if i could use an aftermarket cpu cooler with it.

my specs:-

AMD 3.6 GHz AM3+ FX4100 Processor OC'd to 4.3Ghz
ASUS M5A78L-M LX Motherboard
Asus NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 4 GB
Asus DRW-24B3ST Internal Optical Drive
Cooler Master 90 CFM LED Cooler
WD Caviar Blue 500 GB HDD
and a stock chassis cooler.

I need 95w.

    Using eXtreme PSU calculator, your system (with fans, 10% capacitor aging, and an OC that stays at 1.3 vcore) is consuming AT MOST 348W. Meaning recommended is 398. You could add in an aftermarket CPU cooler... it won't change the wattage because it doesn't consume much more than the stock cooler.
  2. For some reason, the page isn't loading for me. However, I think it may mean that the PSU needs to be at least 95W. That's a LOT of wattage for a CPU cooler! Keep in mind that all a CPU cooler is is one-two fans and a heatsink (that doesn't use any power). You're literally just powering two fans. I don't think it'll use 95W...

    could u tell if this is compatible with my cpu and mobo ?
  4. Should be fine. Why not CM Hyper Evo? That looks fine, though.
  5. hyper evo is really expensive for me.....
  6. as i ve already spent 600$ on this pc

    They'll have that stuffed up. Power = Voltage x Current, which according to their specs equals 12 x 0.19, which is 2.28W.

    If you can save up for the Hyper Evo you'll have yourself a very good cooler for the price.
