Any part category can be a geek's candy store if you really get into the details of them - including things like optical drives. lol

LOL...uhm, yeah I am already there. If I decide to stick the bluray reader in, I am already pondering how to mask the manufacturer markings.

I appreciate your recommendations and they are my top 2 picks too (makes mental note that Overclock.net people seem to have telepathic powers..,or something). So, will be monitoring those two price-wise for next few weeks and go from there; both are very close in price currently.

I wish I had just bought the 1500w.

Just my experience... biggrin.gif

Uhm, yeah:) You just have too much power there and methinks it would be pertinent to just, erm, donate one of those hydro coppers to a good cause *raises hand*.

So under 1000w from the PSU if it's 90% efficient

That's right, just under 1000w, which is what I almost bought.

P2 1200 Evga or SuperFlower Leadex platinum 1200 are noisy under high load but great units.

Do not get Seasonic X series or Platinum, it has very aggressive fan profile and loud fan.

Also Cooler Master V1200 Platinum is a great PSU , pretty silent and internally and it has 135mm FDB fan (SeaSonic X or Platinum units have 120mm ball bearing fan.)

CHEERS..

The 5960X pulls a lot more power than the 5820K when they're overclocked.

Yeah, an OC'd 5960x pulls 130 more watts than OC'd 5820k. Wow.
