Installing the EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 T2 Power Supply
What power supply should I get? This was one of the easier decisions for me to make. This build deserves the biggest, baddest, power supply I can get!
Could I get by with a smaller power supply? Probably, but if I decide to run three or four graphics cards, I'll still have enough power. Plus I've been the guy that buys three power supplies for the same computer... every time I'd upgrade, I'd have to buy another bigger power supply too. That's not happening here, so the EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 T2 is the obvious choice for me.
Of course it comes in a nice bag
A whole bunch of cables I'll probably never use.
The grey striping around the fan opening and on the label match the interior of the case pretty good too
Nine total VGA and five Sata - Peripherals. Plenty of power here!
Mounted in the case. The fan does not even turn on until it is drawing over 600 watts!
I would really like to take this power supply apart, take the fan apart and paint the fan blade red to match the rest of the fans! The fan is not a standard fan and not easy to remove from what I read on the Thermal Bench
Plus having a ten year warranty is pretty nice to have. So for now I'm leaving the power supply stock.
Here's how it looks with the outer panels on.
Now I can start making some power cables. I need power to the Aquaeros, the Farbwerk, the Splittys to power the fans, and the SSD hot swap bay to start with.
