Really why is that? Ive had my blue leds in my sig rig for about 7 months now and love em still...

Okay why is that?

Here is a comparison between the 2600k and the 970:

I'll let you decide what you think about it (The 2600k slaps the 970 around quite a bit). You also need to take into consideration that Intel will be releasing more SB CPUs with more cores in the near future. It sounds like it might be a bit until you upgrade, so you might as well wait for those because they will be undoubtedly better. As for the LEDs, there really isn't that many top notch PSUs with them.

There is however, the Kingwin Lazer Gold which has a blue LED:

I would consider that if you ARE REALLY GOING TO GO WITH 3 CARDS, IF NOT IT IS A WASTE. (This PSU was approved by Phaedrus and JonnyGuru so it is awesome)

Check out this site:

http://www.mushkin.com/Power-Supplie...ule-1200W.aspx

If this site is right and is actually the price listed then it is worth it to get this psu if not then i will get something else...

I'd see what Phaedrus has to say about it, I couldn't find any reviews on it. Also, once again, 1200w is really overkill unless you have 4 GTX580s and then its probably still overkill!

Okay thanks, but this thread is and was not about what sized powersupply or what parts etc but if it will fit into my cm elite310 case! i dont care if it is "overkill" as it has all the features i like/want is plenty of power and is only $100 on mushkins site. And many other psu's are more expensive.. while some 1200w psu's are less expensive they are bad quality.

So "WILL IT FIT?" Is all i care about...

Most PSU's will fit in most cases. Get the dimension's of the PSU, measure the space inside your case from back to CD rom bays and go from there. If that's all you are concerned with, you didn't need to come here and ask.

Newegg is your friend. Dimensions are 10" x 7.25" x 7" Its likely that its not 10 inches long. Its probably 7.25" in length, 7" wide and has 10" cables.

okay i found that the same time as you posted it, the 10" is cables? Thats better i thought it was the length... the case is 7.5" wide so it should fit hopefully, thank you!
