After I upgraded my video card last year to a XFX 6950 I was concerned about total power draw from that power supply. I discovered that I was pulling (give or take) about 420w constantly from my system. I had been worried that that high of a draw off the PSU would put it into critical failure.

Finally, last Friday, Newegg has a shell shocker deal that I couldn't pass up. They had the SeaSonic M12II 750w powersupply on sale for $70 with a $20 rebate. At that price I couldn't pass that kind of a deal up so I ordered it and it was delivered yesterday.

Now I'm ready to do some overclocking now that I know my voltages are going to be steady if I put some heavy load on the system.

Anybody willing to point me in the right direction for overclocking AM3+ system with a Phenom II 945?
Maybe after I upgrade my system.
