I'm building a new PC and the case i'm using is the NZXT Phantom. Because it's a full tower case, i heard people saying that they have difficulty wiring their PC up because the cables of the PSU are too short to reach all the way across (behind) the case.
I wanted to know if anyone can suggest a good PSU that can go well with Phantom or any other full tower case. The GPU i'm using is the Radeon 7950 so i need at least a 500W PSU with 2 6pin connectors. I really dont intend on crossfiring to be honest but i will likely OC the card.
60cm long on the PC Power & Cooling Silencer MK II 750W.
The two 8pin cables on the Seasonic M12II Bronze 620 are 55cm long, so the least suitable out of the units suggested so far.
The hardwired 4+4pin connectors on the NZXT Hale82 units are 70cm long. ATM I can't think of any other units which have 'CPU cables' as long as that or even some other options with 'CPU cables' that reach 65cm.
Yes, 750 W is overKill.
1) With a 7950, or a 7970, your Powere consumption under Load will be less than 350 Watts.
2) With a 750 W PSU idle power will probably put you below the 20% of PSU. Myself I prefer a Idle ratio of 20% and a Max load of <80%.
