You can overlock that mobo securely with some heatsinks on the VRM's cause of the 4+1 Power Design. I'd recommend getting a bit more wattage PSU, like 600 W, because it CAN go above 500W I think. Try out an online test for how much W you need. Also consider an AMD video card instead as it's cheaper for performance and works a little better with the AMD chipset on the mobo than the Nvidia card does. m 0 l zuesters August 1, 2012 10:02:01 PM ty, Calced it on neweggs its 458 psu usage heres the link, confirm me thanks http://images10.newegg.com/BizIntell/tool/psucalc/index... m 0 l Related resources New Build.Need Help - Forum Need help with new build not booting - Forum Is this Build decent, may need help - Forum Need help! wanting to build a gaming pc for all sims 3 and 4 games - Forum Need help picking a graphics card New Build - Forum Can't find your answer ?
