Oh, I follow. Well, since I have the 400cx sitting here, is there any harm in doing that setup? I'd just jump the hx650 and flip the power switch on the PSU right before powering up the system.

I am near microcenter, but it might make up for the price difference between that and the silverstone in gas. Plus I haven't heard anything about that psu, I'd rather stick to well known quality PSU's.

Any answer on the single rail vs double rail (or 6 rail in that microcenter one's case lol)

Silverstone Power supply's are good. The Strider -P series have capacitors on the pci-e wires so if your sleeving in the future it may complicate things.

There is a good read about single vs multiple rail psu's.

It's not that either one is exactly better, just you have more safety with a multi rail psu if it's quality.
Ah I posted too early, thank you. Will read later. I need to stop procrastinating on my paper

In the case of the HX1000 the situation is a bit different though. It's basically two single rail PSUs put together, and because it's got two 12V sources, it's kind of a pain to manage. But it doesn't have the advantages of most multi-rail PSUs.

Ah, now I see them since you've pointed that out. I wanted modular 24 pin specifically for sleeving...but I could probably just sleeve from both sides of the capacitor. Mini sleeve right between capacitor and gpu plug, longer sleeve between other side of capacitor and psu.

Pain, but now that I've sleeved once I learned some stuff.

the word pain coupled with manage already makes me want to back off. For ~$30 more I get a brand new, virgin psu with modular 24 pin like I want. It's more money than I want to spend (or have lol) but I'll go with the Silverstone I posted. Unless anyone has any other suggestions that fit my criteria?

The Corsair HX1000 is overpriced, and it's not that good as far as 1000W units go anyway. Bad purchase.
Here's another suggestion for you: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817256068

Right, that's due to the platform it's based on. I don't think anyone will argue about it being dated and better options floating around at or near that price point.

For $50 more I get an 80 Gold Cert. and a rated 83a 12v compared to 80a rated 12v? Is there more that I am missing besides those two obvious things. What does the -G stand for?

It's pretty above my budget, but if it is really that much better of a PSU than the -P I can consider it.
