I like this build very much. My only concern is, will the Seasonic PSU be enough for this build if I ever plan to overclock the CPU and 7950? This PSU seems to have great reviews so I would prefer to buy this one.

Initially I bought the Corsair TX650. The fan turns on when the system starts but stops spinning few seconds later. I read that the fan speed is thermally controlled so I put my rig under heavy load by running Prime95 and Heaven Benchmark at the same time. CPU and GPU temp gets to around low 60's C but the fan still is not spinning ! Maybe the unit is defective?
