...and I went and got the Corsair 650tx. It has one +12 @ 52amps. That should be enough power for a short time.

But hell, there sure is alot of cables and they are LONG.

nice I was looking at the 750tx that ended on ebay for $85 brand new still in plastic. Long cables are great. better long than to short. You can always hide them.

Ya long might be better but what is the limit. These are really LONG

atx = 24"
8pin 24"
2x 6+2 pin 24"
2 sata (four powers) 40"
2 4x molex 40"

but included were 1/6 dozen ties so that is ok. I got 3 sata drives and 4 fans so one each pwr cables I got folded and I'll just tape them to the bottom of the case. I think I'll have to move my bottom drive up one in the bay but that ain't a problem with my a900, just a quick disconnect and a few thumb screws. I'll have to work a bit at the cables that I will be using. My mobo power is almost right under my video card and with this coolmaster it was easy to slip the wires under the card but with the new 650 I'll have to go up and over the top of the pwr box, along the edge of the case slots and over and down the side of the video card. That might work out ok.

Or I can just bite the bullet and get myself a dremel and goto work on the case...I think I'll do that some day but not right away, I'll save that for a cold winter day when I am bored. This case is pretty cool running them front fans at medium speed and the hdd's are about 28C. And I thought that my case as is was heavy, well adding this pwr will up that by about 1/4 again, no lan partys for me

Yeah long is always better than too short. The limit will be your cabling skills. Biting the bullet and cutting a few holes will prolly produce the best results. Just make sure to file the holes and use some type of coating on the metal where you cut it to prevent chafing of the wires. I just tucked em up under the bottom for now. I have not bit the bullet yet either. As far as LAN party. They make little suitcase carriers with wheels. Just an idea. Limit your self only to what you really want to do and not what you think you can't do!

Well I haven't been to any lanpartys and I don't really intend to. I like to play fps'rs well enough but I am not a fanatic.

And I am not posting any more in that "Rate My Cable" thread. I like to have a neat looking case with wires/cables as nice as possible but to cut three holes just so that I can post a pretty picture for others to rate is really not what I need to do. I need my build to run good and work for me. So far I am happy and that is what matters to me.

But changing pwr boxes is a major change so I thought that I might try a bit better management. At first I though hell this is going to be pretty ugly but after folding and tying the lengths that I would not be using and using the two slots in this case it turned out better than with the Coolmaster. The 650tx was another $120 to add to the total but I do get $20 back with a rebate.

Hiding cables a bit was worth it I think and my temps are pretty good even folding with the cpu & gpu versions. The cpu is running about 45c and the gpu is stable @ about 53c. I do got it oc'd more than evga oc'd it, 75+ on both the clock and memory with the shader at 1860. Rivatuner is doing all the work for me.

And here is the result...

looks good. I'm gonna mod the shoot out of mine some day. the one thing I wish Antec would have done is put a hole in the bottom of the chassis where the power supply goes. this way I could have the power supply intake and vent seperate from the rest of the system. This would help keep my psu cooler.

its not that easy to hide the long cables! My Corsair 750TX is very hard to hide the cables even in a Antec 1200!
