    Default Looking to upgrade PSU

    Hello,

    I've currently got a CXM 450W PSU in my PC. I'm not too worried about the voltage as from what I've heard, 450W is more than enough but I would like to get something of better quality. Overclocking wise, my Ryzen 5 1400 is currently overclocked to 3.8 GHz with 1.325v. GPU also has an overclock of +85 MHz to the core clock and +310 MHz to the memory clock with no change in the core voltage. Regarding power supply's, I've been looking at the TXM 550W/650W (which ever one is cheaper as sometimes the 650W matches the price or is only a couple of £ more).

    Future upgrades will probably be to Ryzen 3000 if that helps.

    Retailers I can buy from are pretty much anywhere on PCPartPickers list of retailers in the UK except for Amazon which I can't use.

    EDIT: Whilst I'd be happy with a Corsair TXM, I'm trying to see if there's anything cheaper than that unit that doesn't sacrifice on the quality. I'm good with semi-modularity if that widens the scope.

    I would keep PSU as is, a CXm is (probably) still in warranty so there’s really no reason to swap it out...
    Just some nerd from 'Straya

    Alright, just checking. The CXM 450W is still a good unit for a reasonably high end system right? Just don't want to end up with a dead computer.
