hI,
I will asemble a system with Asus M4A785D-M EVO (785G/710), Phenom II X4 955, integrated GPU, 4gb DDR3, 2 HDD Sata, 2 DVD.
I want to use a iCute modular 500W PSU, model AP-500AS (http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=221195).
I couldn't find any review, Any advice will be apreciated.

That PSU is junk do not get it.. It only has 20Amps on the 12 volt rail its garbage.

Look for a Corsair or Antec even if its a 400 watt Model of one of those it will actually produce more power then that ICute.

Do you have a GPU picked out yet or you gonna use onboard graphics? This will effect your choice of PSU.

^+1. That PSU won't be cute when it blows up and takes the rest of your hardware with it. Get a quality PSU from Corsair, Antec, PC Power, OCZ, Seasonic or XFX.

Hi,
I will use onboard graphics.
In the box is writen

3.3V = 28A
+5V =28A
+12V1 = 20A
+12V2 = 20A
-12V = 0.8A
+5Vsb = 2.0A

Then mean it have 2 riel 20A each?
not enaught for my system?
Thanks so much for your help.

It will power it but it is a no name PSU the quality is unknown a bad PSU can damage your hardware so it is very important to get a quality unit.

Since you will be useing onboard graphics your system can be power on a lower wattage unit look for a corsair or Antec.

Thanks guys,
I will follow your advice returning iCute PSU,
Any way it can't fit in my Aerocool M40 case (made by www.icute.com.tw)
I need a PSU 140 mm deep maximum, non management or the conectors must be located in the half right of the cable/management area;
(Antec Signature have cables OK, but it's too long [16.26cm(D)].
I will buy Corsair CMPSU-550VXUK or Seasonic S12II-620 Bronze
I found many Corsair good review, but nothing about Seasonic S12II-620,
Any one have or tested S12II-620 PSU,
Thanks

You can run a system using onboard graphics on a 250 watt PSU.
