Raidmax Hybrid 730w - Page 2

Well, I will have a 2500K, CFX 6850's, and probably 7-9 Fans on the PSU. Will a 650w support all of that?

Looks pretty solid. What monitor are you using? If you aren't using 1920x1200 or above then the money spent on that second 6850 could be better spent elsewhere.

I haven't upgraded my monitor yet. It and the 2nd 6850 should be bought by Early-Mid February.

i would also advise skipping the corsair coolers. they are way overpriced for how they perform. get an air cooler and save yourself the money.

i just recently upgrade from a noctua nh d-14(one the best most expensive air coolers) to a full water loop and only saw 5c drops in load temps.

just goes to show you how good the top end air coolers really are.

Thanks, trust me I have done far too much research on coolers. lol That's why I bought the Archon to begin with.

However, I really don't want the massive air coolers on my board or taking up most of the space inside my case. I don't plan on doing any outrageous overclocking and with either an H50 or H70 in Push/Pull with nice fans, I'm sure it will be just fine. It just gives the case a much cleaner look and is much easier to work around. Thank You for the suggestion!

I know this isn't the Memory Section, but is that nice memory to use? The P67 boards actually don't support 2000 Mhz Memory (wish I would have read about this b4 I ordered) so it will downclock it to 1866 Mhz. Will that be satisfactory performance-wise or is there better 2133 Mhz or 1866 Mhz RAM in the same price range? Thanks!

Because a great number of power supply resellers are liars. Raidmax power supplies aren't the absolute worst, but they do like to take mediocre, out-dated Andyson made units and arbitrarily add 20-30% to the labeled wattage. So when you pay $60 for a Raidmax "730W" you're actually paying $60 for a mediocre 450W. Doesn't seem like such a good deal in hindsight.

Good news is that you system will run on a mediocre 450W. So you aren't in any immediate danger or anything. But yes, you have been had by deceptive labeling and lack of research.
