Default Re: GTX260 PSU and Hear Concerns

IMHO I think 550w is a little low tbh and you might encounter problems. I also have good airflow in the case and additional fans and it all runs very cool. My GTX260 gets into the 70's under load and that includes an overclocked Q6600.

Hope this helps.


Yeah I ordered the 750W , I'll be doing some slight CPU OCing.
Can you link me to some guide that can provide me with some info on OCing my Q6600. I'm sure google can give me many but I prefer one that you trust. I don't want to push it too much. I'm looking for something around 2.8Ghz or so.

My CPU is idling at around 38-40 degrees on my Thermaltake Cooler.

Thanks for your help.

I am not sure how valid those can be because Nvidia recommends at least 36A on the 12V rails.
