Input on a 1100ish general gaming build - Page 3

post #21 of 39
I would pass on the HIVE PSU. The efficiency isn't as good as alternatives around the same price, and the 650W sizing is incorrect for what could become a dual 7950 system with overclocking. If you think you will be CFXing the 7950 ever, then a 750W is the correct size, otherwise, if you absolutely know you'll stick to a single GPU, the Capstone 550W is available for $70 right now and is superior to the HIVE in build quality and efficiency. To give an idea of how good the capstone is by comparison, have a look at the 550W capstone 12V rail rating compared to the 650W hive smile.gif

The Hive is based on the same internals as many popular PSUs from OCZ in years passed. They have been eclipsed by more modern designs that run cooler and last longer.

just keep in mind that the extreme4 can sometimes look wack with cases that have a large enough cpu cut out because it isnt standard atx

Thankfully i found out about this issue before i bought it

The NZXT fans are pretty decent in my experience, I would just add to them if you feel like you aren't getting enough airflow.
