Your current PSU + Your DX10 Card + Dedicated GPU PSU = WIN - Page 2

Well it was just a suggestion to some as you may go spending lots of money...When you dont actually HAVE to.

These PSUs sit in the 5.5" drive bays though, right? So, are they sucking in air from the outside of the case and therefore pumping heated air into the case, or are they sucking heated air out of the case?

Unfortunately im not sure. However i do beleive they put hot air in the case..However apparently its minimal. But im not sure which way it goes.

Yea I think it is the other way around. They pump out hot air from the front and suck from the inside of the case, I imagine. The other way is a little pointless.

Well im hoping this is the case as it makes more sense.

I like this concept alot. However, anyone with enough cash to splash out on an SLI setup or high end GPU isnt goig to be overly fussed about 40-80quids saving on a PSU. They will probably go far a 1kW PSU and one of these GPU PSU's on top of that. Why? Money to burn I guess! Still, for the budget builder, a good idea!

Hmmm... Well, I do agree that is it more cost efficient to spend £25.00 on a GPU PSU and then £35.00 on a system PSU than it is to get a high quality system PSU for all components. A decent single system PSU could easily be £100.00 or more, so going with the two PSUs will definitely save money. Also, it would be even better value for money if you already have a system PSU, to just get a GPU PSU instead of upgrading to an high quality system PSU.

I may well invest in one of these GPU PSUs in the near future, depending on if I get the X1950XT I plan to and if my existing system PSU can handle the extra load well or not. Hopefully the GPU PSU will exhaust air from inside the case, rather than add warm air to it, but as you say, either way it's likely to be minimal at worst. After all, the kind of fan that'll fit into a single 5.5" drive bay wont move much air. Hopefully the fans on these things aren't too noisy though... I'd hate to have a couple of little screamers in the front of my case .

Nice finds btw .

Good point mate. Well I got this mainly for future cards....Such as dx10

The FSP Has a little more power so may be a better buy but is nearly double the price of the thermaltake..
