Hi guys.
I am planning to build a pc and I really dont know which psu I should pick:
CoolerMaster G650M or the Seasonic M12II 520 Bronze?
I'm planning to overclock my Gigabyte RX 470 G1 Gaming, so which one would be better?

Thanks in advance!

This doesn't apply to all power supplies.

When a GPU manufacturer designs a card, they have to consider that some people have atrocious power supplies. In which case, they must overestimate the total wattage. Since the M12ii Bronze EVO Edition series is able to deliver almost all of its total wattage to the 12V rail (used by the CPU and GPU), 520W is plenty.

A reference RX 470 consumes up to 120 watts. An add-in board partner version like the G1 Gaming may draw up to 150, and that card isn't known for having a very high power limit to begin with. You'll be fine.

Can I overclock my RX 470 with it?
 


Absolutely. You'll hit the card's limits before the power supply even breaks a sweat.

Are you really sure of it? The recommended psu is 500w for rx 470.
