Hello, and welcome to my thread. After an thread where I asked how I can gain the best performance we came to the conclusion that I needed to overclock my cpu. now I'm reading Darkbreeze's overclocking guide and he says you need good specs on your powersupply. I don't know how you can spec out a Bequiet powersupply(or even a PSU in general) so that's why my question is. is the powersupply that I have NOW good enough for a 4.8ghz MAX overclock on an i5 9600k.

CPU - Intel Core i5-9600K
MOBO - Gigabyte Z390 GAMING X
GPU - MSI GeForce GTX 1660 TI GAMING X 6G
PSU - Be quiet! System Power 9 600W
RAM - Corsair Vengeance LPX 16Gb (dual sticks)
Case:
Cooler Master MasterCase MC500 - Midtowermodel

Cooling:
Noctua NH-D15 - CPU Cooler
Fractal Design Dynamic GP-14 2x - Fans

Storage :
1tb Seagate barracuda hdd
500gb kingston A1000 m.2 ssd

Keyboard: hyperx alloy fps rgb
mouse: Gpro wireless
monitor: 1. AOC27G2U (144hz 1ms)
2. old philips thing

headset: Logitech G933 or G430
 
A very nice setup.
The psu requirements are largely gated by the graphics card you will use.
The GTX1660ti is a relatively efficient card so your psu would be sufficient.
Here is a chart for other cards:

Overclocking does add some to power requirements, but really not that much .
There will be a limit as to how much voltage you want to allow the processor to use.

Thanks for the compliment. I've worked 3years for this setup and im always happy when I hear this. thanks for the information now i can overclock my cpu without being scared of my powersupply exploding.
