Games seem to working good now.. :) The extra overclock on the AMP edition seems to have a difference of ~5 frames in games.
yeah interesting. Maybe it just needed proper reseat to apply correct pressure. Kind of looks like there wasn't enough TIM to begin with, but thats just me. Could have also dried up thus, not working how it should

And are you running just the stock CPU cooler at that OC speed?
That's stock speed for the i3 540...
According to EVGA and MSI you need 500w and 30-31 amps total system power for a 560 Ti. Your CX430 has only 28A, kinda pushing it on the PSU.
I agree that he should get a larger PSU in the near future, however the i3 doesn't draw a whole lot, I wouldn't be surprised if the rig uses 175-200 watts up to 250-watts max. Consider for a moment that my i7 3820 and both 6870s fully loaded (plus everything else in the box,) is about 450-watts off the wall and that is overclocked on both GPUs and the CPU.

Yeah I got the CPUs mixed up by looking at his sig. LOL

"Intel I7-2600K (@4.5Ghz)"

Yeah but I'd still go with a 500w of at least 30A, otherwise I'd be hesitant to want to OC the CPU and GPU much.

He doesn't have a 560Ti.



The 560 he has calls for a maximum card draw of 150w. As well as a 450w unit which his CX430 can quite easily put out since it is rated for 430w continuous.

Zotac includes the same rating for the power supply.

Yeah but I'd still go with a 500w of at least 30A, otherwise I'd be hesitant to want to OC the CPU and GPU much.
Why? What would you recommend for a system with a Xeon X3440@4.2ghz and a GTX 470? Even with a heavy OC and watercooling it runs on a FSP 450w with a single 36A 12V rail.

Yeah well I somehow thought it was a 560 Ti we were talking about. I'll bow out now. Too much on my mind to be chasing down who's said what right now.
