  1. That CCFL already has the inverter built in so you just need to plug it into a Molex (4pin) connector. Raidmax aren't exactly high quality PSU and you don't need 1000W for that build.

    This XFX 550W (Tier 1 Seasonic) will work just fine.

    If you really want a 1000W pick this EVGA (Tier 1 Superflower)

    You don't want to purchase a Raidmax , they were used in this video.

    The XFX 550 posted above isn;t Haswell Certified.

    Here's a good deal; on a SEASONIC made supply.
