Corsair CX550 for i7 6700 and 1070?

Amazon has one for $55 for Prime members and am wondering if this will be enough if I end up OC'ing in the future.

Wattage and quality are fine. But this unit is known to not outlast its warranty so you may see yourself RMAing it after a few years. If you are fine with that, its a great deal.

Look at professional reviews. On this unit, corsair cheaped out on the fan (sleeve bearing), making it wear out very quickly when the PSU fan mounted horizontally. The PSU is still good but its just that fan.

I ended up going with the 650 gq for $70.
