Can new OEM head studs handle 12psi?

Assuming all other things are properly addressed, are new, OEM, coated steel head studs going to be the weak link on a supercharged engine seeing up to 12 psi? I had 3 of the old studs break and already have a new-in-bag set from our sponsor. I thought I recalled hearing no problems with the straight steel items but search on this forum under "steel studs" comes up zip.
