I already own the CX600 and would like to save some money by using it on this build. I am opting for the i7 CPU to get the higher guaranteed processor speed without having to overclock an i5-4690k because I felt the i7 would be more future proof, have more upgrade potential, and relieved by nervousness about overclocking.
I received feedback that I should replace the PSU when I had presented the build with the i5 and planned overclocking, is that still true with an i7 and no overclocking?
If yes please propose some replacements. I know that there are specific PSUs that have come to be known as the best/most stable, and that not all EVGA or Thermaltake PSUs are created equally.
