I'm just using stock cooling (heatsink on the CPU and memory with fan). It is odd because before I OC it, the board was running at one point 80 degrees C. Now, it's much cooler running in the 60's. I'm using the Nvidia display properties to read the video temps so it's not lying to me.

I would shoot for no less than 450, but try to go around 500watts.
