post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
lol yeah, my setup is quite low on the power end and i'm not planning on overclocking a tremendous amount. at the most i'll push my xp2500+ to xp3200+ @ ~1.800v and i was able to do this with my generic 300W PSU. so! i should be in good shape.

Yah I absolutly dispise mine. I got the X-Connect 500watt UV Blue version, looks nice but worthless.

The whole modular cable thing that is suspost to make cable manament easier. The cables are like freggin trees to cable manage with the don't have good flex so they are a pain. my 24-pin connector is looped around in my 5.25 drive bays because its to thick to loop around any other way and they made it like 25ft long to reach a distance of 6".

The UV Cathode thing that was inside the PSU on the fan, PIECE OF CRAP! Mine exploded and shorted out the entire PSU and computer wouldn't even turn on or anything. Then I got a piece of the element from the CCFL in my finger which HURT!

The PSU is basically a 100$ letdown in a fancy box.

PS-> anyone want to buy mine?
