Yes it is necessary, the machine won't boot without it. Nvidia cards often have a speaker in them and make a lot of noise when the power leads are not connected. I don't know about ATI cards.

What a mess the OP has put together and left the cables like that. It's just a random-whack-it-all-in-there, even a tiny bit of effort at cable management would have produced a better job than that.

I put together my first build several weeks ago. ...I can't begin to tell you how nervous I was. At first it looked like his did. Then I took a moment and tried it all again.

I did my best hide to the cables in the HAF X...which has many holes in which cables could be hidden in the side door. That was one of the reasons why I bought it. My PSU is a Corsair AX so I only put plugged in the cables I needed... which was nice at first but I ended up putting in all of them and they are thick and have little give.

Anyway, I thought I did a cruddy job. But then after it was done...I said "That ain't half bad!". And not just for a first build either. I know I could make it a little better but it's great. I used twisty-ties and no zip-ties. Once I'm sure of it in there I'll put the zip-ties on.

And after looking at those pictures above...I know I did a great job! Of course, I have a Silver Arrow so that means less cables. LOL I should get some pictures up with my crappy phone.

To OP: Just take some time and try to manage your cables a little better. Less cables means more airflow! Show us your pictures when you do. Great system! Not so sure about the PSU, though.

Though I mean there isn't much room in that case for Cable management, which is the nice thing about Full Size cases.

You can always push them cables inside the DVD/CD cage, cable management solved!

Wait, isn't that PSU modular?
