I bought my new computer, built it all, but I'm afraid to even turn it on now. I used a website to find my optimal PSU power, but now looking to the future (and at my LED fans), I think I should be on the safe side and just replace the bloody thing.
* Asus P8Z68-V PRO GEN3
* Intel quad-core Core i5 processor i5-2500K - 3.30GHz/LGA 1155/6MB three cache / 95W
* EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP
* Kingston HYPERX x2 4G DDR3 1600
* Intel 128G SSD
* Some Samsung 500G HDD (7200 RPM)
* Razer Naga
* Asus 515 Chassis (has a fan in it as well)
* Cheap Asus DVD/R
* Massive Coolmaster CPU cooler (looks like the Hyper TX3 RR-910-HTX3-G1)
I initially purchased an ANTEC 550W CP PSU, but I think it's too small risky, especially with my fans + an already OC'ed GPU. My question for yous is this: what size should I be upgrading to? My hope is to OC my CPU to 4.0ghz at some point. I might also add a third LED fan if I need more air circulation as well.
Question 2: air flow. This is my case, the Asus 515. Red indicates intake fans, yellow is my PSU (yes, it's at the bottom left) and purple is my exit fan typically where the PSU is. Is this enough air flow? I know I don't have a top intake fan (I opted for the side fan to blow on my GPU instead of in top) , but will this hold me over for now, and possibly later on when I try and OC my CPU a bit?
I could add another FAN on top sucking air out... but maybe that's overkill?
