You can most def secure it from underneath if you are careful. Be warned that the tabs on the HDD cage will most likely need to be crammed under the case lip though.

Thanks!

Yeah, the CPU power is another reason I was considering a new PSU. Although, depending on the length of the cables I think even a new PSU may need an extension. I've not taken any new pics, but I have since tucked it behind the GPU and ran up the left hand side of the motherboard. Still not ideal, but better than it was! Once I get the cabling sorted I do plan on running it all behind. I do love the cable management on this case!

Think I may go PSU shopping this weekend then... Would love to pickup one of the Corsair AXi series but damn are they expensive!

Just go with the HX series. The true benefit is the AX is just so you can swap out a few cables but for practicality, there really is no need to go beyond semi-modular. If you have extra money to blow, then by all means, the AX will keep it the cleanest and allows you to get a full sleeved cable kit. If you are going to sleeve it yourself, just stick with HX.

Actually, they have an AX for just 10$ more

It's up to you. I think 750 is all you really need for peak efficiency with (if you do get another) 7870. I think its about 40 amps on the 12v rail and the hx 750 provides 62amps.

I happen to have a new black 8 pin cpu extension I have never used and won't because I bought red sleeved and will just send it to you for a temp fix if you wish. Also I would go with the AX if you want Corsair because I like the Seasonic and the HX 750 is made by Channel Well. It might be a great PSU but I trust Seasonic. You could also try the Seasonic X 750 or even better the SS 760 XP from them. I have the SS 660 XP2 and it is solid with plenty of room for upgrades. The 660 has had some folks complain about coil whine but I haven't heard it and the 760 or 860 don't seem to have it.

If you want the cable just PM me.

Cheers for the advice! For the small difference I'm tempted by that AX. I'm in the UK so I'll have a look about and see what I can get here. Reckon 750 is plenty of headroom for a possible crossfire and water pump or two then? Want to make sure I keep future proofed enough so I don't need to buy another PSU for a while smile.gif

Thanks for the offer, unfortunately I'm in the UK so probably cost more to ship than the price of an extension, but the offer is very much appreciated! Really nice to see such a friendly community.

If you're looking at getting an AX series it's probably worth checking out the current prices for the AX850/860 as well. A few weeks back I ended up getting an AX860 because for some reason it was ~£10 cheaper than either the AX750 or AX760.
