- The pull by those graphics cards is going to skyrocket once you overvolt (which, as enthusiasts, you know we do).



with those 3 points made, 700w = comfortable.

Out of your three points:

1) Completely correct.

2) Agreed. Our high-end lines tend to start at 750W and up, since few people buy high performance, low wattage parts, and 550W and 650W are considered mainstream to low wattage now.

3) True, but the load won't be significantly different - maybe an extra 20-50% depending on your overclock, and mostly it'll be a lot closer to 10-20%.

My point was this quote:

700w is usually what most people comfortably need for a single-card rig

Could lead a lot of people down the wrong road to spending way more on a PSU than they need to. Not everyone is as knowledgeable as you about these things, and all it takes is one quite taken out of context to confuse and miseducate an entire new generation of enthusiasts.

I think those of us who've been doing this a while owe it to the new guys to be as accurate as possible. After all, we were all noobs once. We all learned the same way - by building PCs and asking questions. At this point in my life I've built literally hundreds of gaming rigs for personal use and work stuff, and every time I build a system there's something new or interesting to find out about that specific board or graphics card or whatever.

What seems "obvious" to those of us with experience may not be obvious to those new guys.

PRO-TIP TO NEWBIES - Your power supply is pretty important, because aside from your motherboard, it's the only thing connected to almost ALL your components at once, so if it goes bad, it could conceivably kill a lot of different things. Spend a few bucks and get a reliable, decent PSU with a good warranty from a major brand.

AX650's were the best.

Too bad only you and a few hundred others guys a month agreed. :\

Guys my top filter cover from DEMCfilter came in for my 350.

Here is the actual filer;




Here is the top of my 350 case;




Here is the top of my 350 with the filter installed.




Overall it will do the job I think from keeping the dust reaching inside my case. I wish the magnet was more powerful because it moves very easily. I also would like it to be flush against the case but due to the screws from the radiator and air flow, you get those bulges.

I will let you know how I see it in a month if it catches any dust.

Here's a completed shot of my new rig. I was amazed at how well the wiring just seemed to "fit" with this case. Overall very happy and this thing runs noticeably faster than my old i7 build and I can just barely hear it running. Very satisfied!

I'm thinking of a mod, but can't currently get my case out of the box. Anyways what are the ont 5.25 covers measurements? (LxH) and I'm talking for the two of them, how good would a psp 1000 screen fit on there? I thought of cool way to monitor your stats...

Getting my Platinum 1KW PSU this week, so I can finally resume my build.

It's been on hold longer than a call to Telstra. Read: a long time - (fleet will understand)

I was to get back to you on this, so with the offset did it work?
Do you have any pictures?
What board are you using?

Thanks.
