I have been trying to conceptualize the power consumption needs of this build. I have input these components to both ASUS' and eXtreme Recommended Power Supply calculator.
eXtreme Power Supply: 463 to 518W
Under these calculations, would a 600W be ideal or could I get away with a 500W PSU? I'm thinking corsair will be a good brand to buy from. Any other considerations for these PSU requirements?
Looks great! I'm sure the credibility of seasonic is solid. And the 550W should be ideal. Only thing is and this of course goes with the territory of a mITX build, because it is non-modular do you think with proper cable management the PSU will keep its longevity?
I'm still a little unsure of this one in particular because of the difficult time I'll have using a non-modular PSU for a small case/mITX build.
