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 need help with my gaming build - Forum Need help with my gaming build - Forum Looking to go SLI on an existing build, need help - Forum Need help with first build. - Forum I need help with my $600 pc build - Forum Can't find your answer ?
