Question for XFX XXX owners

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am thinking of getting one, but I have read in a couple reviews that the CPU cable is a little short. I have a mid tower with a bottom mounted PS but would like to route it behind the board to hide it. I have looked everywhere and can't seem to find a measurement for it. Can someone tell me roughly how long the cable is?

Thanks in advance.

First off, I'm sure you wouldn't have a problem with length in a mid-tower. Complaints have likely only come from people with full-tower cases with bottom-mounted PSUs trying to run the cables behind the board.

Secondly, why XFX XXX? There are much better PSUs out there :O

I have the 650W XXX XFX PSU, and I have it installed in a 690II, the CPU cable fits behind my tray and isn't even tight..

^Awesome. Thanks.

^^It just seems to fit the mold that I need: modular(semi at least), 80+Bronze, <$100, 4x6pin connections.
The reviews seemed good on it......
Any other suggestions then?
