The NX-6000 is 125mm in depth though. I wonder if that difference would matter in the GD06 since 140mm is the max it can accommodate already. Thanks for the info though appreciate it.

The Green Series from Rosewill uses a low speed golf fan which is why it's so quiet. The golf fans have a very smooth ball bearing in them.

Read the review linked in the OP. If [H]ard|OCP couldn't destroy the unit, then the other guys were idiots or doing it wrong.

Yes, but MUCH better fan & fan profile.

Hey
Current rig (relevant power suckers):
asus p8p67
i5 2500k
msi lightning gtx 580


Currently I have an OCZ fatality 750W supply.

Thinking about going SLI with the msi lightnings... would this supply be adequate? I usually have the CPU overclocked & the GPU stock, but i'd like to have the headroom to overclock the GPU(s) if I decide to...

I was thinking about getting an AX850, but if my current PSU will do (with the CPU overclock, and without the GPU overclock) then i'll save the money for now and pick up something down the road.

thanks for the help

As long as you don't both (1) push the voltages on the GTX 580s to overclock hard and (2) run synthetic tests to max out power consumption, you should be good to go.

Your unit is fine, even if you dropped in another GTX 580.

 

If you planned to use Furmark & Prime95 all day on your system, then that PSU would be taxed. Though, the unit has more than enough 12v power for your system and an SLi setup.

Seasonic X-Series 850w one of the best PSU's on the market.
post #1626 of 6751
I have a slightly different question, I'm looking for a specific size of PSU, as in physical size. I have an AX850 which is the perfect physical size, but the fully modular cables prevent me from bending them the way I need to in my case, as space is very tight where the cables attach. Is there anything comparable that is the same dimensions but semi-modular? I literally can not use a PSU that goes over 165mm or around 6 1/4", and it has to be a decent unit to power my 590, i5 2500k, D5 pump and a ton of fans.

The Lepa G700-MA or G900-MA would work.

 

You only need the 700w model, but the 900w is just another option available.

 

The Thortech Thunderbolt Plus 1000w would be another option as well, that gives you a fairly accurate power meter to use with the unit.

 

Do note, that the 900w or 1000w units suggested would only be needed if you went SLi with that guy.

I had a similar scenario with my build. I went with the NX-6000. It would be just enough for a GTX 590 and while not being modular it has just the right amount of connections for a single card setup. I don't think there'd be any extra cables (ok may be just one). It's only 125mm in depth. I hope this helps smile.gif

I just looked it up, very nice and the colors match my build. I'm thinking if swapping my 590 our for a 580 because most of my games only use one core anyhow. Thanks a ton for the suggestion, that would give me a LOT of room!
