    So i just tried to push my fx-62 to 3.8 and my gtx to 700/1050 suddenly my comp got unstable so i unclocked the gtx and ran 3dmark pi aquamark and cpu burn in for 24 hrs no issues then tried the gtx again no luck so i under clocked the cpu again back to 3.4 and bumbed up the gtx and wouldnt you know everything was stable i checked my volts in speed fan and they say everything is cool but over the years ive learned to take speed fan with a grain of salt. now im runnin a 500w antec neo he and ive never had problems with it when i had both gtx in the same system i ran them off of it and it seemed fine but now im wondering if my system is undermpowered due to the overclocking of every last part does anyone have a total wattage usage tool? i have a wattage meter to tell me what the psu is suckin from the wall but nothin to tell me what the comp is sucking away

    I doubt your FX-62 can reach 3.8! That's way out of its normal range!
