I'm thinking of picking the mobo up soon, but I want to make sure that it'll fit. I heard the little cover over the the ports in the back might get in the way of the 120mm fan at the rear.
Yep it fits great! Astr627 has one as well as myself.

Thank you for taking the time to look into it!!!

First I don't know if you looked up the right PSU (v2.31) Which has gotten very good reviews, here are some links.

This PSU has won awards, also remember that I am getting it in a Combo Deal with my Storm Scout. I really hope we are talking about two different PSU's as I would really like at least a 750watt for future upgrades.

http://www.bjorn3d.com/read.php?cID=1782

Thank you also for your help with the Thermal Paste, I had been going off of these recommendations

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/artic...il-2011/1246/5

I will defiantly be looking into what you recommended though and thanks for the input.

Nope, it's the exact same psu in the JonnyGuru review. Part number RS750-ACAAE3-US v2.31. Awards are only as good as the place or person handing them out. A Newegg Award is mostly based on SALES of the unit or on PRESS reviews, not on actual testing done by a qualified reviewer with the proper equipment.

NONE of those review sites have the equipment to do a proper test of the PSU and/or don't use them do a proper test. Read the review I linked to from JonnyGuru where they actually tested it using the proper test equipment to measure ripple and electrical noise. That is something none of the reviews you listed have the capability of being able to measure and the people posting the review probably wouldn't know how to use if they did. Tweaktown's review is especially bad in this respect in that they claim to have the equipment, but then don't actually do the tests (or at least don't report them). It's bogus reviews like that that make it difficult for people to know who to trust. You can go with that piece of garbage if you want. but the chances are you will regret it when it fails on your or you start having stability problems down the road. It will probably work okay for a month or two, then it will start breaking down. You've been warned.

If you don't believe me go to the PSU forum here and check with them. Although some of the people posting there wouldn't know their butts from a hole in the ground, there are some people like Phaedrus, Tator Tot, and a few others who really know their stuff and can point you in the right direction. I would specifically ask for Tator and Phaedrus' opinion on that PSU. If you do insist on a 750 watter then refer to the Recommended PSU List to find a good one. Notice how that psu isn't listed. There is a reason for that and you would be wise to heed that.

Remember that the PSU is the HEART of your system. If you don't have a GOOD psu you will never have a good computer. Scrimp somewhere else if you have to, but get a good psu. That's what powers all of the componants in the system.

Hey thanks for replying!

I was not talking about newegg awards though, I was referring to the tech and OC sites that test these things. I use newegg for the reviews of the people who actually own it, and they were positive(any complaining was mostly because it was not modular).

Here is a link to a site that reviewed it and used some of the tests you were talking about and then gave it their silver award.

http://www.bjorn3d.com/read.php?cID=1782&pageID=8392

I went to your link and it was informative, but it was kind of dated, he was using a pre-production test unit. Even with that said, he still gave it good marks at the end, just not top teir, which is not that important to me.

All of the review sites that I have read have given it good marks (not stellar, think B student) and that was about 8 of them, along with the newegg reviews (4eggs, would be 5 but not modular) I am just not convinced its that bad. I do like the way Jonny phrases things though LOL.

If you have any suggestions on a 750 watt PSU, along the same price point of the Combo deal (or even SLIGHTLY more expensive than that) I would be grateful if you shared it, I am not married to this PSU by any means.

Thank you for your insight on this.

The xfx black 750w is one of the best 750w psu's out there. Also semi-modular and $99 after rebate.
