You seem very inexperienced with computers in general. Please do your hardware a favor and abstain from overclocking until you have a better heatsink, better overclocking knowledge, AND a better power supply. If you want that 8120 at 4.5GHz, you will need at least a quality 650 to 750W PSU as you have a chip that ramps up to about 400 Watts overclocked, and have a Crossfire system.

Not to be an ass but at best buy it's 10 dollars less :D
They dont have the HX750 GOLD revision PSU at bestbuy. The one your looking at is either the TX or GS series. Not all Corsair 750w PSUs are the same. Thats why there are series like CX, TX, GS, HX, AX, AXi. For $10 more at newegg you get a 80 Plus Gold efficiency PSU, with better voltage regulation, more stable power. AGAIN NOT ALL CORSAIR 750w PSUs ARE THE SAME. YOU ARE MISTAKING A TX OR GS SERIES PSU FOR AND HX. :shadedshu

You're using logic. stop it. that's not in the OP's vocabulary.

If the OP wants to waste money on a crappy PSU (i am very sure its a GS line PSU) that is his buisness.

Really? I hate to bug you but could you make a list for me? I was thinking about getting this and letting the radiator hang out the case. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/1...it_w_Free_Dead-Water.html?tl=g30c83s137#blank I had a idea of getting a mini ice maker and putting the radiator in there for better temps :p
If you ever do get the better psu, fans, tim, and remounting, NEVER EVER put a radiator into the fridge. You will break the fridge. Fridges are designed to make an item(not producing heat) cold, not cool an actively heat producing object. Doing so will overload the compressor.

if you bought it from best-buy already go get your money back because you just payed about 50% more then its worth

If that were the case, you might as well invest in a proper chiller. Either way, mini fridges are not designed for a constant heat producing load.

Is there really that much of a difference between the one at bestbuy and newegg? If I go with bestbuy would I not get much out of it as I would with new egg? If so explain, just so I can learn a little more along the way. If this helps I'm finishing my build for editing videos. Not gaming.

You didn't even tell us what series Best Buy is offering. How should we know? Newegg has better prices and selection. The most likely scenario is the one offered at Newegg has better efficiency, ripple, and voltage regulation.

Its a better overall power supply. The one at bestbuy probably isnt even 80 plus silver in terms of efficiency. Not as good of voltage regulation, etc. Basically more stable power. Itll be more efficient too, won't have to pull as much power from the wall to sustain the power requirements of the whole system. No offense but it would be very stupid to not get the HX750 GOLD from newegg. $129 its a no brainer because thats all you would pay since there would be no tax if you dont live in california, and its free 3 day shipping. If you went to best buy it would be over $129 because of sales tax, and usually best buy's online prices dont match in store.

I had my FX -8120 @ 4.40GHz with 1.375v set in the bios running all 8-Cores. Another 100MHz Would have forced me to up the volts past 1.4v.

Start slow and up the multi one step at a time. Then up the voltage 0.1v at a time when you run into stability issues. Look for the AMD FX OC'ing thread inherent.

In very simple forms if the corsair your talking about at best buy is a TX or GS line The maker of the actual PSU is pretty much the same as the one you have now NOT VERY GOOD The one at best buy is most likely the GS model as Best Buys carries the cheapest of pretty much everything but charges you the price of top of the line items

Ya i know it sucks haveing to wait for it to be shipped and paying that extra 10 bucks but trust me you will love it and your PC with love you for it you will get better more stable clean voltage/power in to your PC and you can be rest assured and relax knowing that your Power supply won't blow up at any second takeing possibly your whole system with it. Trust me and what everyone else has said spend a little bit more now and not having to possibly spend alot alot more later
