That's actually a pretty decent calculator...I was real close on my numbers..based on the system spec Sniper and I were discussing, recommends a minimum of 294W and a 344W PSU...(or a 350W biggrin.gif )

If you are running a 7970 as mentioned earlier, I would probably add a 120mm to the top as an intake.

If you post your specs or put your system in your signature, we can help a lot more...thumb.gif

EDIT:
Don't ever buy into what the shops or mfr suggested PSU recommend...here's a chart with real world power draw...

My bad. Here is my build:

I'm glad it's actually fairly accurate, I have used it with every customer computer I've built (around 30 now).

and... ADD ME please...

Seeing as LRT thinks the PSU Calc I linked is pretty accurate, I guess I can suggest you use that, and then ask around as to what power supply manufacturers are good for you. I think you should also probably look for a modular or full modular PSU.

So what is your specific cooling issue?...as to whether it would hurt your temps running an intake fan in the top of the case, it certainly won't hurt anything...Also, I would put your system specs in the signature, that way people don't have to ask every time they answer a question.

Just did. My cooling issue isn't really an issue anymore because I removed the glass from my Prodigy's side window. Sort of a bummer that I had to do it, but with the glass on, my GPU was nearing 80+C under load.

I was just hoping there would be a way to better configure my fans so that I could keep the glass window on there.

I just bought a 200mm radiator for the front and I'm waiting for it to get here so I can start my custom loop. My set up will be a 120mm rad in the rear with fan blowing out, and 2x 120 fans in the top for intake. Should i have the fan on the 200mm rad in the front set up as intake or exhaust? I'm worried I wont have enough intake but don't want to mess anything up by blowing hot air into the case.

Ok think i have got the basis of what i want now, what do you guys (and girls) think of this build (purely for gaming)

Case: bitfenix prodigy ck anniversary edition (comes with mesh front and window panel) = £69
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k = £165
Mobo: Asrock z77e-itx = £114
PSU: Seasonic ss-650rm (took me ages to decide on this.. Please say it will fit lol) = £84
GPU: xfx Radeon HD7950 = £239
Cooler: Corsair h100i = £85 (see question below)
RAM: 2x 4GB G.skill ares orange DDR3 1600 = £45
Storage:
1TB Seagate HDD (data)
128GB samsung 840 SSD (os)

Fans:
Not sure yet

Question time please, sorry guys i know i have asked alot. But this is my first build and sold my macbook air to build this so i need to get this right
i am thinking of going with the h100i cooler for my cpu, not that confident putting a full blown water cooler in yet, anyway now i dont like the stock fans and saw this pic (on here not sure of the guy who built it)

Could i replace the stock fans so it looks like the above? Or would i have problems with cooling the radiator?
