I made some tweaks to my old build and for some reason my wattage has spiked. I used to have around 350 watts, now im at 450 watts. wondering what part is making the big difference: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/rPGN8Y

also wondering how many watts would my psu have to be able produce with this build if im looking to overclock
