Few of my favorites... id go with a 850watt if you plan to have head room if not a nice 650-750 watt be good. Get gold or platinum. These are just some options. Theres more good choices out there

firstly, if you don't plan on having overhead, don't bother with anything but 80 PLUS bronze. it's simply a waste of money. basically, most PSUs operate at peak efficiency between 40 and 60% load. so to get that 90% 80 PLUS gold efficiency, your system would only want to be drawing ~400W for a 850W power supply.

check here for your specific system wattage needs, this will get you in the ballpark: http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

if you don't care about efficiency (most people think they do, but usually not for good reason) add 20% to the number the calculator comes up with and that's approximately what wattage PSU you want.

if you do care about efficiency, or otherwise just want the absolute best power supply for your system, add 80%. adding 80% will give you ~69% load on your PSU, but chances are your system will only ever run at about 70-80% of what the calculator says so that would give you roughly 50% load on the PSU and peak efficiency.. hypothetical numbers below

500W <- system wattage based on calculator
400W <- calculator x 80% (actual avg. load)
720W <- approx. PSU wattage (actual + 80%)

750W PSU @ 400W load = 53% load (great efficiency) under avg. conditions, 80% system load
750W PSU @ 500W load = 67% load (good efficiency) under rare conditions, 100% system load

also note that the number the calculator will arrive at is based on 100% system load (literally every component at max operation), which will most likely never ever occur.

a 750-850W PSU should be perfect for a single GPU/i7 system like yours

personally, I've only used XFX and Corsair PSUs. I like Corsairs more. a power supply is not the place you want to skimp, if you are going to skimp somewhere. Invest in something quality, read reviews on both the model you're looking at as well as the manufacturer.

modular power supplies are another consideration, mainly just for the sake of convenience. I'm partially to the Corsair RM series for high-end systems and CX modular for lower-end.

I've installed about (5) XFX PSUs and they're alright, no problems but nothing special. I've also installed several Corsairs.. (1) CX series, (3) CX modular series, and (2) RM series and they're all fantastic!

Alright, after almost two years of ownership, it's finally time for me to join this club. 

 

Going to post a picture of what I'm working on with the case. To gin up some interest for my TROOPER mod. Check it out HERE.

Just installed everything today smile.gif this case does not look as old as it is, that is for sure. It was a breeze to install everything. A humongous upgrade from my z11 plus.

and on that note, efficiency does not matter at all unless you are going to be @ ~ 100% load all the time.
much more important is that you get a PSU with great ripple and power delivery !

for the record, I wasn't suggesting to buy a PSU based on only utilizing 50% of its rated load.. only if you're hell-bent on operating at maximum efficiency. I was just stating that PSUs operate at peak efficiency at 50% load. this is literally what 80 PLUS certifications mean (rated efficiency is achieved @ 50% load). of course, other criteria must be met but that 90% efficiency figure (for 80 PLUS gold) is rated at 50% wattage load.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/742
http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/181/9

that being said, efficiency really doesn't come into play in consumer systems. slightly more-so in 24/7 mining rigs where the goal is maximum hashing for minimum power used.

80 PLUS certifications should really only be of primary concern on much larger scales, such as data centers, where a 5% difference in efficiency could equate to $5000 +/- on your monthly electric bill.

Guys what kind of Noctua fans should I put in the front? The ones that come with the case have a strange hissing noise that's driving me absolutely bunkers.
My choice is between the NF-S12A FLX, NF-S12A ULN and NF-S12A PWM - No idea what to get for this case buttkick.gif

Oh and my motherboard is the M5A99X Evo R2.0 so it's got plenty of PWM fans, but the sensor stays at 27-28c at all times ..

Hi guys,

So i bought my stryker about 1 month ago but i just discovered this club now.
I didn't really do anything special to my stryker except from hooking my led strips up to
the case led switch.

What are you using for led's? Can you also explain how you hooked it up to your case led switch? Just curious. That last picture is playing with my eyes. It looks like the case is bent nerdsmiley.png
