I'm looking into buying a psu for my next build, which will look something like this:
4gb pc6400 ram
2 sata hard -drives
2 optical drives
quad core ( probably q6600 )
Its a bit vague, but thats because I'm having to buy a new PSU as my old one just went, and i dont have the money for all of the above just yet and as such not decided on it all.
Anyway I've been looking at the Corsair TX 750, and read fairly good things about it, but i need some advice. Will it be able to power the above system with an overclock on the q6600 lets say to 3.6 and be able to power another 4870 should i later decide to crossfire?
Also to any current owners of it, how noisy is it, and have any of you removed the plastic covering half the fan, if so did it have any effect on temp/noise
I believe it will power it or i'm in troubles because i have this psu with an e8400 and plan on getting another 4870 I read alot before i bought and they recommend 650 watts so a 750 watts corsair (very good brand btw) should be fine.
Sounds like thats my choice, like i said, it seemed odd that corsair went to the trouble of putting in a big fan only to cover half of it up, but if it works i should really know not to question it! Thanks guys
As the other guy said, the fan noise is not a problem. The only (and I mean only) problem is the amount of cables in there. I have one DVD drive at the bottom of 4 bays, and everything from the drive to the top of the case is filled with excess cabling.
hey sorry for the delay in this follow up post, went on away on holiday! Do any of you guys who own this PSU have it mounted at the top of your case? I read that it's really heavy, so am a bit worried having it mounted on only four screws. Btw cheers itadakimasu for the info, but i live in the UK Thanks guys, sorry for dragging this out!
