Hello everyone!

I'm planning on building a new PC and was wondering how much can I save on the PSU. I'm thinking of OC'ing the CPU a lot, maybe 4,6-5 Ghz. Please add some suggestions on the PSU models.

One last thing, regarding OC, do you think a NH-D14 will be enough for cooling the chip as I am thinking of the CM HAF 912 case.

Thanks in advance for any feedback/advice/recommendations on this!

Yes to the cooler . Any good brand PSU with 500 or more watts should do fine , I like a bit of overhead , I use the Antec HCG 620M on my fx 8358 7850 computer . Picked it up on sale for 65.00 . Look around for sales on Corsair , Antec , XFC ans Seasonic .
And the last place to "cheap out " is the PSU . You want good stable clean power , especially if you're going to OC
