I wouldn’t be setting my CPU voltage 1.5 to 2,that would kill it fast,you mean 1.2 stock,1.3 to 1.4 overclocked with a decent air cooler or watercooled….Iron cores LOL….

Definitely agree PSU (Power Supply Unit) is 1 of those components you should get a good quality one with plenty of voltage/watts for future proofing.

I suggest getting something like the EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 T2.
Total Watts: 1600 Watts
100% Modular
Energy Rating: 80 Plus Titanium

I think at the very least you should go for a modular PSU with an energy rating of 80 Plus Gold…at least.

And I agree that it’s better to invest a bit more on 1 computer to last 5+ years than to get a cheap one every 1 or 3 years.
