Is a 500w PSU enough for overclocking a 3770k?

So, recently I resurrected my old pc with a 3770s paired with a gtx 1070. I got a good deal for the 3770s, and I didn't think it would bottleneck my gtx 1070, but I noticed it does in some games. Now, I'm looking at upgrading to a 3770k and I was wondering if a 500w psu would be sufficient.

My Cheap But Good Rig: I7-3770s, Intel Motherboard (actually made by intel), 16gb DDR3, Nvidia Gtx 1070, 250gb Samsung 850 EVO SSD, 750gb HDD, Evga 500 BR power supply

You should be good to go. You can check with an online PSU calculator just to be on the safe side. I was able to overclock my primary build to 4.0 GHz without any issues and a EVGA 500w PSU.

Intel Core i7 9700F / Cooler Master 212 Evo / GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER / 16 GB G.SKILL RAM @ 2666MHz / GA-B365M-DS3H / EVGA 500w PSU

HP Pavilion Gaming 15 / Ryzen 5 4600H / GeForce GTX 1050 / 8 GB @ 3200MHz
