yeah i only said something 850 or higher to allow for some headroom for upgrade-ability over a few years, aswell as cap aging
I have this CM PSU and did a lot of reading up on it before I bought. It is a very good PSU, unlike CM's older PSU's. I'm really surprised mine made it through my year in Honduras. The base is running on generator power, in the year I was there we had 4 of the 7 PC's in our shop blow PSU's.

Oh man generator power is way unstable, you guys ran power conditioners to protect the pc's?

That is just amazing that your psu lasted.. Guess it is a one up for Corsair.

Yes it is, and when on goes down, well lets just say it makes a brown out look like someone turned off a light switch. The work PC's run on UPS, but mine was just on a power strip.

Much better Only thing I really see now is the CPU power cable can go behind the MB, and try to find a better place for the fan cables.

well that was as long as the factory cable would reach.. i would need an extension to get it completely behind the mb.

as for those fan cables, they go to my window fans... which have really short cables, and are hard to plug in as it is!

I see there are a few new members and want to remind everyone that we have a CMSSC Steam group. http://steamcommunity.com/groups/cmssc/

Now I have my rig up and running again, we need to setup a game night. So now what game and when? I'd be open for the 15th of this month. As for games, well BF2, L4D2, Crysis 2, COD Black-Ops, Fear 3, TF2?
