…yes dont change the psu only for overclocking…it has nothing to do with overclocking…i can oc my processor at 2.42ghz wid chinese psu…i put my friends coolermaster 460 watt psu for testing purpose and result was same again max i got was 2.42ghz…so there is no link b/w psu and overclocking…make sure whether ur board is overclocking freindly or not
Link between PSU and overclocking is present in a way which u r probably not seeing or known to you.
Basically what is overclocking? giving more voltage to the Processor which increases its multiplier for FSB and this the core clock. Voltage depends upon? Constant flow of electricity.
Saying that I placed 460Watt PSU in computer for testing and it showed no effect is actually not a technical line to say about overclocking. IF your motherboard isnt able to overclock beyond a certain limit, then even if u connect your PC directly to WAPDA and overclock, still results will remain same…
Purpose of PSU is to maintain constant supply, either its American or Chinese. WHen your oc anything either its graphics card, RAM or CPU, each one will demand more power and for this pupose u need a bigger power supply which can not only maintain OC rate but also ensure flawless power to hardisks and other components.
and for matter of general knowledge, putting a 800W or more power supply willnt increase your Bill either because if a PC needs 400W current, it will get 400W only out of 800W.
Thats why , I suggested him to use Motherboard RELATED overclocking tool and keep the power at constant rate IF he has low capacity power supply.Make sure to notice in my 1st post, I said to Maintain the Varaiation in Load, a handful amount of Watts are needed, NOT for overclocking
