    um n00bish mistake :p its a corsair 400w, and i chose it to go with the budget he had, although i was going to pick the stealthxtreme and then wait for everyone to shout corsair at me haha

    well done mate i did offer him my unused stock e7200 cooler for free but thats even better :toast:

    Read the quote above yours. That is done with a Corsair HX620. I know what I'm talking about. n00b?:rolleyes::slap: Yes, the Corsair 400w is a fine PSU indeed, and sure it may handle a bit over 400w, but it's deffinitely not going to be enough.

    i wasnt calling you a n00b or say u didnt know what you were talking about, you got me in the wrong context totally :eek:

    just stating it was a n00bish mistake mistaking the corsair for a coolermaser, but yes i didnt see wasleys coolermaster link above you were actually referring to so i was a bit hessitant or n00bish soome might say haha so my bad :p we all skim read now n again and jump to conclusions lol :toast:

    however the corsair would power a e7300 and one hd 4850 with ease any day of the week.
    erocker says thanks.

    Not a problem bud! :) And to be honest, if I never hooked my system up to an AmWatt (basically a Kill A Watt), I would of thunk the 400W Corsiar to work fine. The highest amount of wattage I've pulled out of the rig has been 467 watts with Ocing the card to 675/1050 and a modest 3.4ghz on the E7200. If I'm not mistaken the cx400 is capable of around 490 Watts of peak power which would still work, though I'd be held back to overclock any more. I love corsair's psu's, if my HX620 had two more pci-e connectors it could run my 4870 crossfire system no problem!

    Cheaper and I won't be needing 640Gb. I know its not alot more money, but i'm trying to save money. My budget was £300 and i've managed to spend £400 with case & CPU.

    ok np, the newer seagates are fast anyway, its a good drive :toast:.

    but thats what budgets are for, so they can be blown to shit when you actually decide to stick to one :laugh:

    congrats on purchase ,it should do you very well :) a very good upgrade for the price imo.

    Yes - but in the future. I don't want to half the life of the CPU.

    as long as you're sensible it won't 'halve', but ofc it won't last as long as it would otherwise.
    I doubt you'd be using this in 10 years though, so y'know, not so relevant..
  18. kyle2020 Guest

    im guessing the life expectancy of most chips is 3 years with overclocking, but i doubt anyone on here (Im talking enthusiast level) will keep a processor for more than a year or so anyway :ohwell:

    Ahhh - Well, I'm not sure If I will be or not. I usally start overclocking when my system starts to lack power for games.

    Congrats Wasley! Did you take my advice from yesterday?

    No offense but whats a checkpoint?
  23. kyle2020 Guest

    Checkpoints like the deliveries head quarters - say fedex came to your house with a package, but you werent in, they take it back to their checkpoint to be collected later :toast:
