I'm powering a Phenom II X4 955 and a Powercolor 6850, so the psu has to be at least 550w and the case at least an ATX mid tower. Great airflow would also be desirable. My main gripe with the setup above is that the Rosewill is lacking in aesthetics, but anything that looks better has crap reviews or is beyond my budget. Two other cases I was looking at are
that Antec unit is NOT mediocre nor do Antec ask for the lowest bidder. Antec GOES to the OEM and tells them what THEY want and what PRICE they want.Also the antec is of good quality and stability for the price it asks. Most major companies have their power supplies made by a few oem, be it delta, seasonic, or cwt. Where do you think Corsair gets their AX units? lowest bidder? Nope. They go to seasonic and tells them what they want and they make it for corsair.
Right now tbh the Seasonic S12II units are on sale and is $30 off from their original price.
Outside of the combos, I think the Seasonic 650w is the best in consideration to price and the facts mentioned, but the concern remains. Apparently two fans are Molex, and the other is a three-pin. I have no clue what the difference is between the two. Are Peripheral cables 3 or 4 pins?
Yeah, I think I'm going to go with the link I quoted in my last post; it's 650 watts and has one good review compared to the one bad on the 550. If anything is incompatible I could always yell at rosewill cust. support.
