I bought a 7950 Vapor X, but I can't close side panel. Fans make ugly noise. Don't fit frown.gif

So I'm in the process of building my Prodigy but the PSU I had from my last build is wayy too big. I found these 2 140mm ones, can anyone recommend one over the other?

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009FU2A40

http://www.amazon.com/Antec-Energy-Certified-Supply-TP-650G/dp/B0091Q516C

I also can't quite fit my HDDs in there, probably going to go with external enclosures or audit my data and try to get it on to another SSD.

Thanks! Hopefully I'll be in this club soon...

EDIT: I'll be running a i5-2500k and GTX 780, both watercooled. I think the 550W should be enough, right?

Took me a little trial and error, as it was my first build also. I have it mostly up and running. Played a little Skyrim and GTA IV. I love this case!!

Just realized the bitfenix spectre pro led fans are 3 pin and the asus mobo fan headers are all 4 pin

That means they run at 100% instead of me being able to control them, ***fff!

You are mistaken about asus headers. All asus motherboards come with 4pin headers, but in reality the only true PWM header is the CPU_FAN, all the CHA_FAN headers are voltage controlled (3pin).

On the cpu_fan header you can still use 3pin fan, you just need to enter the bios, go into fan control and change Q_FAN from AUTO (pwm control) to ADVANCED (voltage controlled).

So you should be fine using the Bitfinix fans, and controlling them with Asus FanXpert.

Yep I learned this the hard way. Bought all PWM fans and later was pretty disappointed.
