hx750: 4 pin cpu cord

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I am looking at getting the hx650 or hx750 to upgrade my computer away from all the dell b.s.

I have ordered a Cooler Master Storm Scout mid tower and a sapphire 6870.

I have read on reviews that corsairs 4 pin cpu cord is arranged in this order:
1 2 3 4

my motherboard requires the 4 pin to be arranged in this order:
1 2
3 4

can anyone tell me if this is true or have any experience on the topic. this is my first build and want to make sure everything will hook up before ordering.

thanks

great. i figured it wouldnt be something to worry about, but since i saw a couple reviews for it i thought i would double check.

I have a feeling the 650 would be enough for my system. I dont plan on crossfiring, but will probably add a couple more hdd's and do some overclocking. I want this psu to last for a long time so i might get the 750 just to be safe.

is corsair the only psu i should be looking at? or are there comparable modular psu's (in both longevity and quality) that i should be looking at?

any thoughts or recommendations would be great.

I don't know if you're planning on upgrading anything in there, but your system as it is would run great on a 300W PSU, you certainly don't need 650W, let alone 750.

He's also getting a 6870, so a 500-600w is needed.

Core i7 and 6870 will run on a quality 400-450W. The 6870 is a relatively low power card.

True.

with overclocking, a couple hard drives in raid, a new video card (maybe 2 down the road) a H50, and possibly a blue-ray drive?

i just want some room to spare for future upgrades. i think i might go with the 750.

An H50 and a Blu-Ray drive are pretty much irrelevant in terms of power consumption, but for a 2nd video card, yes, you'll want something a bit more powerful than 400-450W
Shoot for a good 650W unit like the XFX 650W, Antec TruePower New TP-650, SeaSonic X650 or NZXT Hale90 650W.

alright, just wanted to check with everyone to see if this looked alright. wasnt quite sure about the thermal paste.

Im going to wait a little while for the motherboard until i have some more funds, but what do you think of the upgrade thus far? oh, btw, i just picked up a cooler master storm scout mid tower for $60. thank you craigslist!!
