Hello everyone!

I'm running a new system I built, and so far, I've gotten great performance. I am tempted to push it and see if I can squeeze a little more out of the GPU, but I'm not sure if my PSU is strong enough to comfortably overclock. I've checked a couple of PSU calculators; I'm not sure I want to trust my expensive rig to it though. Here's my specs

Asus M5A97
HIS ATI HD7970
AMD FX-8120 125w Black edition
7200 2tb Sata HDD
CD-DVD-RW drives (2)
Stock coolers
Three case fans
6 usb 2.0 devices
3 1080p monitors
Basic stereo speakers from the 3.5mm jack

I have an 850w PSU. Will it work?

Thanks,
Nick

What brand and model number is your ps? 12v rail rating should also be listed or a link please.

Azza isn't a tier one ps, but you can try overclocking; just don't go too high with the amd stock cooler.

This. You're not going to be limited by your PSU at the moment.

Just curious--I was aware that Azza wasn't the best of PSUs available--where would you rank Azza?

Thanks for all your help!
