PSU for overclock 600w enough?

The online calculators tend to exagerate a bit i guess, so i might as well ask here. (before i start i should say i live in brazil so options are limited and prices are way higher).

My FX-8320e is overclocked @4.2, 1,36v (Push/Pull 212x)
4x 2gb ddr3 1333 1,5v @ 1600 1,65v
1 HD 5400
1 HD 7200
GTX 970 itx 4gb (@1366core and 7500mem +0,037mv)
1 dvd drive
9 (120mm coolers)
1 (80mm cooler)
on a 40 LED tv.

Currently i was using a corsair cx500w but sometimes i was getting blue errors, tv blinking, or overclock error on boot. So i noticed the 3.3v rail line was below the 5% tolerance. So i disconected the dvd drive and the 5400rpm HD and got it up to 3.177v. The problems stopped, but to be safe took the GPU oc offline aswell.

So... Im in need of a new PSU i guess, and thought to buy an EVGA 600b (here after converting is something around 100 us$). So cant go much higher and only if 600w isnt really enough... So i need advice.

My question is: To get all the parts and oc back online, is 600W enough?

Thx all!

  1. 600w is enough bit the EVGA 600B is a poor choice quality wise.

  3. SR-71, but as i've read the corsair CX series is worse or equal to evga. Isnt it true? Namely the CX as tier 4 and EVGA as tier 3 (source: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html)

    Old CX series - the tier list hasn't been updated. The newer one upgrades the capacitors and generates the minor rails, for better performance and has a longer warranty to reflect the increased reliability. You'll know you have a new one when it's just black and white and gray, with no green like the older, harder-to-recommend CX series.
