95 watts on the processor is the max power that the cpu will use to run. The 125 watts on the cooler is the amount of power, dissipated through the cpu as heat, that the cooler can handle. The cooler doesn't use 125 watts, but it can cool a processor that does.

I'm seeing that GPU takes 25 watts.

95 watts sounds reasonable for a CPU.

125 watts sounds very high to me for a stock cooler......but even if it was 125 watts......I still think it will run.

Where are you getting 530 watts from?
soryy i thought the gpu takes 300 watts as it said in power requirements thanks for replying :) just want to know if athlon x4 880k has any problems cause its on its way for delivery i don't want to upgrade to like other motherboard or cpu
