  • Spec me a nice psu

    Got my parts on order just stuck on what psu you to get

    I should mention it does not have to be moduler believe me I'm a pro at hiding cables (OCD and to much time on my hands)

    I'm just running a i7 (none k)╣
    7870 (no crossfire of sli ever)
    Air coolers only
    1 pci being used for wireless card

    I was looking at the be quite none moduler 700watt psu on aria for the price it seems like a steel and iv used there psu before mostly the dark power range

    I will be adding a extra ssd and hdd to the build for my Linux side of things

    ╣because I spent no money on a case the money saved allowed me to go to an i7...Due to my past I did run a lot of vm ware and being a tattooist and graphic designer I thought the extra boost in cpu power the i7 would be better than a i5 for graphical based software and 3d rendering

    * swapped my ps3 for a raven rs03 XD Dam sexy case only thing missing from case is 1 of the rear hdd caddys and the top 120mm still nothing that effects the case performance

    700W seems way overkill to me.... nice PSU but too much power.

    The XFX 550W would be plenty, but I'd probably grab one of these Seasonics which are a bargain atm :
    Fractal R4 (shhh!) 3570k, z77x-d3h, 16gb, R9-270X, 240gb SSD, 2tb mirror w/ 60gb cache drive

      4770k @ 4.6, XSPC Raystorm, Avexir 4x4GB 2400MHz, ASUS Z87 Maximus Hero VI, Tri-fire 290x/290x/290 Reference EK 290X CSQ Full Nickel Blocks, Alphacool 240 ST-30, Alphacool 360 ST-30, Asus Xonar, Alphacool D5, Corsair AX 1200i, Carbide 540

            Yeah as above, I seem to remember you said something about liking cabling well that modular one will make that a whole lot easier.
