I'd love a Seasonic X modular, but it's rather expensive at the moment.

It does run a lot more expensive, but it's worth every bit. Always look up the real reviews for the psu, places like jonnyguru show the power ratings at different loads and temps, while also showing fan volume at different loads/temps. It's always nice to know what you're getting so you don't go back and forth with different products.

Here's my new "mobile" gaming rig, not much room for wire management, but when the graphic card comes in it's all hidden smile.gif

From what I know the PSU's that are 160mm long should fit, but does that leave room for modular cables or am I still going to have trouble?

Your good to go with a 160mm PSU, since my Corsair AX 850W Gold fully modular, also 160mm, fits just fine!

Some people don't like the position of the power plugs on the reference GTX 670 but in the Prodigy it made the cable management easier for me. What I did not realize when reading reviews about the EVGA GTX 670 is that the cooler is not black and white but black and a very light silver. It is still a good match for the Prodigy in arctic white.

Question for builders like the two on this page with long video cards. Does a card this long block the upper hard drive cage no matter what? Do we know the length limit to keep the hard drive cage in place?

Lizard-Brain, you have your heatsink fans out of the normal configuration, how are your temps? Do you have an overclock? I assume a third fan wouldn't fit between the heatsink and the optical bay?
post #1210 of 11736
The HDD cages and the stock fans were the first that flew right out of the case when I started working on it. So can't give you a definite answer.

Yes, the CPU fans are slightly out of the normal configuration. Instead of 2x push I went for push on center and the rear case fan pulls. Another CPU fan towards the ODD bay would not fit. However the Spectre Pro 230 in the front is pushing pretty well and the GPU is only adding some minor heat dissipating through the SLI connector. I am wondering if an additional case fan in the top would help dissipate that portion. Right now the rear case fan most likely pulls any heat from the SLI connector through the CPU cooler out of the case.

Anyway my core i5-2500K is overclocked to 4.7 GHz @ 1.416 - 1.432 V. This passes 24 h Prime95 and hours of Civilization V which I found to be a very good test for medium loads. It's important to test stability for medium loads because finding the right voltage for full load is just one thing.

Idle temperatures are around 35°C and maximum load temperatures under the Prime95 Blend Stress Test are fluctuating between 70°C and 75°C depending on which test is being performed. Playing Civilization V results in about 55°C.
