    Spec me a PSU!

    Hi there, I'm currently looking at investing in a modular power supply for my new ITX build!

    I think that with a 2500k and a 780 (Both mildly overclocked) a good 650w PSU will be plenty?

    Don't really want to pay an astonishing amount of money

    Ordered, went with the XFX 650W on account of it being a tad smaller.

    Every inch is vital in the cooler master

    XFX, BQ, or upper Corsair range are all good

    I'll have a lookie around, does it impact on compatibility of anything else?

    Yeah modular is the reason I'm changing PSU's. Can't be dealing with them cables any more

    Ah bummer, is the RM longer than standard then?

    Not sure how much clocking you'll get away with in the 130 mind
    Well I've got the lovely ACX cooler, but I tend to leave that at default clocks because of how nice the factory overclock is anyway. And I'm planning on keeping my water cooler on my i5 whilst it's in the case, so I'll see how temps are

    In terms of brands what would you recommend?

    I'm kind of choosing between a RM 650W or a BeQuiet 630W, both on Aria.

    How are BeQuiet in terms of warranty?

    I think I read somewhere that there's a 5 year warranty on the RM 650W? I guess the extra 15 has to be worth it just for the peace of mind
