The first thing you need to do if you are going to overclock, or even if you are not, is get rid of that TR2 power supply. That is, traditionally, one of the worst PSU lines from any well known brand, ever. It might say 850w, but it would be extremely surprising if that unit could even sustain 450w for very long given the poor quality nature of that power supply.

Thermaltake really only offers ONE series of power supply that is worthwhile, and it is usually overpriced considering the competition, and that is the Toughpower grand series of PSUs. The TR2 and Smart series units, even the newer TR2 units which aren't AS bad as the older ones, pretty much are ticking time bombs.

I would definitely not be overclocking with one.


If you decide to change it or feel like you're going to do it anyhow, then I'd suggest you read this.
