Rosewill PSU differences

There are different models, arc, glacier, and give? Is there a certain one that is better or newer? The ones I am looking at (500w to 550w) are all relatively the same cost with similar wattages and semi modular.

None of those are that great. What is your budget?

The BQ 500w isn't good either unfortunately. But the Seasonic S12II 520w is a good unit.

You could also go for the Corsair CX450M which is a great unit if it's a comfortable wattage for your build.

Would the Corsair CX450M work ok with this build? I do want to overclock a bit.

Says it's roughly 413w.

Yea that's a little too close IMO, go for the Seasonic 520w to be safe.

You have plenty of wattage to overclock, PCPP power estimate is not accurate.
