Is this PSU worth buying for overclocking purposes?

I intend to overclock CPU, GPU and RAM. The PSU I already have should be enough, right? Or is it worth spending 10$ more on a black friday deal Corsair HX1000i 80+ Platinum?

HX is a very good power supply. It's more or less considered a high end PSU.

Also, please ditch the Razer products, They're terrible for the price. Almost anything is better.

I ditched them already, all the peripherals have been changed. Okay, I will stick to the HX, thanks for the help :D

Yes, the Corsair HX 850 Platinum is plenty for your rig to overclock everything. If you're already bought this, you don't need another power supply.

If you haven't bought it yet, here are some other high quality PSUs you could choose and save yourself some money in the process: https://se.pcpartpicker.com/products/power-supply/#A=650000000000,2000000000000&e=6,5,4&p=1&sort=price&m=11,71&X=0,180900

You could get the RMi650 for cheaper.

But you ordered the HX850 anyway, so... :)
