Corsair GS PSU's don't explode(who the hell told you that?). Look OP, the Corsair GS series is OK. HX and TX are better. Whatever one you get will overclock fine. Thes guys here arguing and ranting are guys who plain just don't get laid and think they know everything.... so they are biter individuals...... Pick your poison and buy it. The top end rated PSU's will be better for high overclocks and extreme overclocking. For your needs GS will work....... Pick your PSU and cooling, buy it, set it up and then come back. The guys(most of them) here will guide you through the overclocking process. If not, give me a PM, I'll be your wingman if you need it.
