Rosewill Hive 650W and the CM Storm Stryker case

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I want to start by saying that I know that I shouldn't buy a cheap PSU to save money when it will be low quality. I came across this deal to get a Rosewill Hive 650W modular PSU for close to $50. I was skeptical at first, but after reading the reviews it looks like a good unit.

I have saved up some money and I'm looking to finally get my first self-built computer in the next couple of weeks. I have my heart set on the Cooler Master Storm Stryker full-tower case, but a lot of reviews on Newegg for the Hive 650 mention the wires being to short for some systems.

I wanted to ask for advice before making any purchases so I don't get stuck in a bad situation. First off, will wire length be a problem when using this full-tower case with the Rosewill Hive 650W? Also, if the wires are not long enough, is there an affordable and simple way to extend them? I don't want to do any splicing or soldering (I don't really know what I'm talking about with this topic) because I have no knowledge of how to do such things, but is it possible to buy extenders? I guess if there is a problem it will be routing the cables through the right side of the case and back to the motherboard.

Basically, is there any way I can make this work without spending too much money or doing anything too complicated? I really want to use this case, and the Hive 650 seems like a great deal for a high-quality product.

The sale for this PSU ends on 5/20/2013, so the sooner anybody could help me, the better. I'm making this post before going to bed for the night, but I'd like to be able to know if I should order the PSU or not tomorrow, Saturday the 19th. Thanks!

You could buy cable extensions like the Bitfenix Alchemy they are the best of those

I have a HAF X even the AX1200 does not have a long enough 8 pin EPS cable that can reach around the back of the motherboard and come out the top

So i was forced to buy an extension cable for that

Thanks for the recommendation! I'll get the Hive 650 and whichever extenders I end up needing, probably from Bitfenix!
