I have my eye on the Seasonic 1250, but I can't quite commit to it. It's either a mental thing, my wallet crying "Uncle!" or something.
The Platimax 1200 was the other PSU I was looking at, but it had mixed reviews. It's about $100 more, but I swear they added a Vegas Trio fan into package just to jack the price up. If it had solid ratings of praise, I probably would've bought it already
I'm secretly hoping SeaSonic has a a secret Platinum 1200W PSU stashed somewhere they are planning to launch soon lol. And if they do have it, I hope they will have 8 6+2 PCI-E cables instead of the 6 that the Platinum 1000W only has.

I have the PSU on top and it defently isent long enough for the GPUs. But they probly would have been if the PSU was in the bottom.
It would also look cooler to have a 560 in top and bottom so the PC looks completly filled!
The stock cables can connect to everything except the top 2 4-pin and 8-pin slots on the motherboard. If I get additional extenders, I am going to make sure they all match for looks and aesthetics. But the whole cable managment and aesthetics issues are going to be the last thing I do. Getting this system up and running is going to be my main focus and quite frankly I'm tired of how long it took to even get this far lol.
But yeah it's going in the bottom chamber, behind the 560 that faces out with the motheboard window side.
