Power Supply - SILVERSTONE Strider Essential series ST60F-ES 600W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready
Is this an ok power supply for my system and what im running? It is a brand new PS.
Yeah im going to upgrade to 8GB of RAM soon. I just had the 4GB's brand new that I haven't used so I thought id see how they do. Whats wrong with my heatsink fan though?
Yes what you have is great for now, but when I mentioned the psu, you have to take into account you have a hdd or 2, video card and mobo running off of it.
If you push it abit too hard, it will be a very sad week for you if you kill that cpu and other hardware.
If you really want to push it, try to attempt it at 4.6ghz when you have a better heatsink fan and effiecent memory to do so.
Even when I have 6gb's now of DDR3 kingston ram at 1066, it will clock up to 4.5ghz, scream and shut itself down.
Reason being, too much heat from oc and sorry heatsink fan many people told me earlier in feburary not to use it for oc'ing!
Good luck and becarefull with that pc of yours.
