More about : power ct1615 a c 165 ) Power supply July 10, 2010 5:23:47 PM at stock the Seasonic 520w will handle it but with all that OC, i would grab the 620w version just for the added head room. Antec also sells a single rail 520/620w PSU made by seasonic. I think its $5-10 if money is an issue. raif89 July 10, 2010 6:24:18 PM i can get a 620w from seasonic thats also modular for about 10$ more just a q, how bad is cable management with a psu that isnt modular?

Also depends on the case. I have Antec 900 cases. I drill a few extra holes in the bottom of the case under the lower drive cage and tie the unused cables down. raif89 July 16, 2010 9:37:42 AM well ill be using a haf922 so im guessing theres good cable management jsc a c 144 ) Power supply July 16, 2010 4:59:00 PM The HAF is a good choice. raif89 August 6, 2010 4:26:09 PM ok now will a 620w psu handle a second directCu also overclocked, or will i need a bigger psu?
