Fully Modular PSU with LED's

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
As the thread title suggests, i am looking for a fully modular power supply for a custom build I am doing for my kids. It is going in a Mini-ITX chassis, so minimal cabling is best. Color of LED doesn't matter that much, as I will adjust the theme as necessary... but blue or red would be best.

It doesn't need to be a powerhouse, as I am just going to use onboard graphics for the time being, so maybe 550W or so.

Thanks in advance.

Off the top of my head I don't think there is a PSU that fits all these requirements:
- Low-ish wattage (and therefore price)
- Fully modular
- LED
I don't even think there is a fully modular unit with LEDs, regardless of wattage. At least among good units.
I think you'll have to set priorities -- full modularity first, or LED first.
The Silverstone ST50F-P 500W is fully modular, but has no LED.
The OCZ Fatal1ty 550W has a red LED, but isn't fully modular.

I figured as much.

the only concern with a power supply that is "partially" modular is that I am instantly going to void the warranty by individually sleeving the cables, and most likely removing the wires I wont be using.

This is going to be a minimalist build in a tiny case, so I would like to have no wasted PSU cables. I know replacing the fan is an option, but I would rather start ommitting the unwanted passive components before screwing around with the active ones.

Just grab a PSU from a good company like Corsair, Antec, or XFX then strap on some cold cathods in the case.

Rice that **** out.

If both full modularity and LEDs are indeed a must, then go for a fully modular unit without LEDs and install LEDs or cathodes yourself.
If you want to keep the budget low, the Silverstone ST50F-P I mentioned earlier will do well.
If you're looking for something more high end, look at the SeaSonic X 400, 460 and 560.

I would just grab this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817256065

And just get some strips.

I had actually been looking at this one quite a bit, mainly because of it's small size and the reliability of Silverstone. who knows why they put a powder blue fan in there with no LED's.

Thanks for the advice all, hadn't really thought about the option of aftermarket lighting for this build, was gonna let the fans do all the work. This way, I can keep the PSU warranty intact and just get started modding the cables I need. Time for some 6-color rainbow paracord!
