Default Will the Seasonic X-460 be enough?

Welcome to Seasonic USA

I want to get a fanless PSU. Will the Seasonic X-460 be enough to power an Intel Core i5 2500K, Z68, 16GB of RAM, 120GB SSD, and a AMD Radeon 6850?

Under a full load with a ridiculous overclock you wouldn't even be able to pull more than 400W with that system. Not to mention the Seasonic X-Series units (especially the fanless models) are built to take abuse and enjoy it like masochistic maniacs.

Under realistic real world conditions you'd still be under half that unit's potential load capacity.

Might get a little hot under heavy loads with an overclock but you'll be fine.

My initial thought was "pushing it" but then I remembered that the amazing 2500K draws similar juice to the E8400. Awesome.

That PSU can handle a 2500k + 1 PCI-E connector graphics card easily. That's mainly due to the 2500k's efficiency as YukonTrooper mentioned. If you swap to a power hogging CPU like what AMD just released you'll be in trouble.
