How much power do I need for this build? Need a short PSU for BitFenix Prodigy.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm going to be cramming an i7 4770k, Asus Maximus VI Impact, Gigabyte HD7990(newer ones with the Malta cores and only 2 8-pin connectors as opposed to 3 8-pins), about 4 fans, a fan controller, 2 1TB hard drives, and 1 solid state drive in a BitFenix Prodigy mini-ITX case.

The issue I have is I need a power supply that can adequately power these components with overclocking headroom for the CPU, RAM, and GPU. I was looking at the 850W XFX Pro PSU but being fully modular and 160mm means it would be a tight fit if it would even fit due to it being fully modular. The max Bitfenix recommends for the PSU length is 160mm but I believe that if your PSU is modular then it needs to be partially modular at that length due to the main power cables.

So if you guys have any recommendations on what I can get that will give me the OC headroom I want, and is around 160mm(but not more)and is partially modular, or something shorter that is fully modular, I would sincerely appreciate it.

SilverStone Strider Gold Evolution is about as small as you can get

A 650 watts should be enough

Im looking at this one:

http://www.amazon.com/Silverstone-Tek-Strider-Modular-ST75F-GS/dp/B00FZHCPR4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1384536980&sr=8-1&keywords=ST75F-GS

It's a great price and has that premium cable sleeving(flat cabling or whatever it's called, Flex-something), but only a 1 year warranty? Comparable Corsairs, while longer, have 5 and 7 year warranties typically. Same with SeaSonics. I'm just not sure if that really screams confidence in their product. I want to be able to overclock my CPU and GPU, will 750W provide the stability?

Yes you dont need more

There are other good options as well but how many of those will fit i have no idea
