post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
hello i wanted to build a new black and white themed rig but my psu is non modular, it is 850w but i think it may be an overkill
my specs:
i5 2500k @ 4.3ghz 24/7
radeon 7970 ghz edition
1 x 8gb 1600mhz ram
asus p8p67 evo
7200rpm 500gb hdd
cooler master storm trooper

so i am searching for a good psu that is fully modular and fits my computers wattage better. and the cheapest if possible
i live in finland

NZXT Hale90 v2 850w is a white and black fully modular PSU, and it would be plenty for a setup with a SB and 7970 in CFX

Edit: It would be helpful if you post some links to the place where you can buy from, so we can know what is available to you.

NZXT HALE 90 V2 or OCZ ZX

its a shame the lower wattage Antec High Current Pro Platinum units are not out yet those are fully modular

Last stay away from the EVGA NEX750B and NEX750G

Edit why do you want fully modular it limits your choices

You can only buy sleeved replacement cables for the Cosair units

All other branded units you have to sleeve yourself or buy extension cables for

Those BitFenix cables are extension cable, that connects to the cable of the PSU. It doesn't matter if you have a semi-modular, fully-modular, or a non-modular PSU, it will still work.

Basically, you would route the original non-sleeve cable of the PSU on the back of the mobo tray, where the sleeve extension will pop out from the back and plug into your components.

Those cables you are looking at are cables you use on the end of the cables already on the PSU you use then on the cables not the PSU

As i said they work on ALL PSU´s does not matter if they are non modular semi modular or fully modular you use them on the cables not the PSU
