Need help with my gaming rig (PSU) (PLZ FAAST!!)

Hello Guys..

Im planning to build a new gaming rig that can last me some years, but i need help finding a good psu for it.

Specs are:
i5-4670k (definitely overclocking)
Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H
Corsair (1x8GB) 1600MHz Vengeance RAM
Cooler Master HAF-912
Gigabyte GTX770
Corsair H100i Liquid Cooler

(Would appreciate any advice!!)

Thanks in advance...

  1. First of all , replace that 1 x 8gb stick with 2 x 4gb sticks as it's easier on the memory controller and will work more efficiently.

    As for the PSU, anything 80+ Bronze or over from Corsair (apart from the CX series), XFX, Antec or Seasonic will be great. I'd go for this one:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207014
  2. Get a 650w unit from Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic.
  3. forgot to include, i may add another gtx 770 to the rig :)
  4. Get a 750w PSU in that case. You could go to 850w but that would be borderline overkill.

    Then a 750w bronze or better PSU from the manufacturers already listed by previous posters is what you are looking at.

    +1 on the 4 x 2 ram as well.


    I have the same mobo + cpu, you are going to like it. =)

    Same price as 650w after rebates on Newegg anyway!

    If you want a modular PSU, here's one:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139030&Tpk=tx750m&IsVirtualParent=1
    A little more expensive, though. With only 750w I wouldn't bother with modular, anyway.

    300R, 400R, 500R are good cases, Phantom 410, Tempest 410, Antec 300/900, Fractal Design Define R4, Zalman Z11 (Plus). Usually hard to find low priced cases that can fit the H100i.
