    yes easily
  3. are you sure?about that its only 550w and amps is 44
  4. xfx 550w is a great unit(rebranded seasonic).it is more than enough to feed a system with 2500k OC and hd 6850 without any problems.hd 6850 needs no more than a quality 450w-

    but you have a good psu and i am damn sure it will run flawlessly.44 amps are more than enough.don't worry just enjoy ;)
  5. i will overclock i5 2500k till 4.2 ghz and hd 6850 till 975mhz core clock and 1200mhz memory clock will it be fine are you sure?
  6. yes sir! and all the best with your overclocking :)
  7. well sunnk sir has tell me that core clock settings and memory clock settings its the best setting for hd 6850?he also tell me that my hd 6850 oced one will beat any stock hd 6870.
  8. ^yes.

    well yes at that core clock and memory clock yes and you 550w psu is good one its better then that cx 600w psu mostly the wattage doesnt matter amps on 12v rail is what matters xfx 550w psu has 44amps and that cx one has i think about 40 amps or one or two more amps.the xfx one has more true power supplying continuos it has an easy rail tec also so be happy with your upgrade and goodluck but dont try to cf.:)
