Hello,

I was wondering what powersupply will fit the Lian Li PC-V351. I was checking out the Corsair HX750 and Seasonic X750. Will this powersupplies fit the Lian Li PC-V351. Also, I will be getting 2x Gtx 460 1gb SC EE edition of EVGA will this fit inside the case and is it possible to power the system with a 650W instead of a 750W? My rig will be an i5 750 oc'd to 3.2-3.3ghz and the 2 gtx 460 1gb ssc.

Thanks

(1) That case will fit any standard ATX Power Supply

(2) I doubt you'd find anyone here who would encourage you to cheap out on your PSU.

Well, I am not trying to cheap out on the PSU. I was wondering if a 650W is sufficient to power 2x gtx 460 1gb ssc evga and an oc'd i5 750 to 3.3Ghz. I will still buy Seasonic or Corsair as manufacturer. But yeah, thanks for the reply about the PSU fitting the lian li

I think 650 W quality PSU will be sufficient but personally I would go with 750W... Just to have some reserve

I spent some time considering a build using a V351 or V352.
Here are some of my thoughts:

1) almost any length video card will fit, including the 5970 if you relocate one of the front fans.
The GTX460 is not a long card, 8.5" which will easily fit.
2) The case takes a standard atx psu. Because it is small, I was looking at the modular XFX650w unit which will opwer your two GTX460's just fine. The 750w unit is silver certified and only $20 more.
3) You have to be careful with your cpu cooler. The best one that will fit is the noctua NH U9B.

The PC-V351 has space for huge graphics cards, but power supply space is a little tight with oversized units. At 7.1” installation depth, our 850W unit is about 1/2” too long to install easily.

Hello guys,

I was planning to get the seasonic 750W Gold certified since its only 6ish". Also for the CPU cooler, I've bought the NH-C12P. I know that will fit in the case.

Thanks for your replies.
