Hey guys,


So I'm starting to notice that the PSU on my SG08 case is starting to fail (not powering on, randomly cutting off power, etc.) I've checked to make sure using the paperclip trick and although it turns on most of the time, the fact that it WON'T turn on sometimes bothers me. I don't really think I'm stressing the PSU at all, since I my components are pretty Low-Mid Range: 2500K @ 4.2GHz, GTX 650 Ti, Samsung 830 256GB SSD...


I'm thinking I'd rather just replace the PSU instead of RMA-ing it. Being PSU-less for more than a week would be too much of a hassle. But if nothing works out, this would be my only option.


Anyway, I'm just wondering if any of you have had any experience with this PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256087


From the looks of it, it appears to be around the same size as the PSU currently installed in the SG08. Final question: would this be a reasonable purchase for an upgrade/replacement? I know they're both 600W, but the modular feature would really help cut down on wasted space. Plus, I've been looking into sleeving the cables on my PSU in order to make it as awesome as possible for myself; the modular cables would really be great. Also, this one has piqued my interest: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256085.
Would either of these fit?


Thanks in advance!
