Hey guys,

I fell in love with this case and the only issue I have with it is that I can't find the specs to tell me if the power supply I've also been eyeing is compatible.

COOLER MASTER Storm Sniper SGC-6000-KXN1-GP Black Steel, ABS Plastic, Mesh bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX850 V2 850W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=17-139-...

Give me your thoughts on what I should do, if it is not compatible, point out a power supply that is.

Thanks for the time and consideration,


Ducky

Those reviews on that Corsair are scary! Go for a 750 W version if you don't need all that power!

Well I should be getting my Corsair Enthusiast Series TX750. I don't think that you would have any problems with it.

Scary reviews on Corsairs?

According to jonnyguru, this is also based on a wonderful seasonic platform and has identical internals to its XFX counterpart.

OP. It is a great power supply and is indeed compatible with your computer.

Just based on the many DOA reviews on newegg.

looking at newegg for guidance? Blasphemy.


You look at reputable sites such as jonnyguru and hardwaresecrets for reviews. DOA's happen to everyone, but it is those that get one that is the most vocal. Nearly veryone else that is satisfied would be using the unit and doing whatever, not going to newegg and say "yes great great".

Newegg is good for a general view of the unit, not its quality.

Thats a concerning number of DOA reports even for newegg reviews. While newegg reviews arent very helpful in general high DOA rates are one of the things they are very good at spotting.

Exactly. Reviews there serve that sole purpose to me. I know Corsair makes great PSUs (I just bought one) but they are all centralized at one reseller spells trouble
