  1. Not the best PSU, but it will do the job.
  2. CM eXtreme Power Plus 700W has the right technical specifications for running your hardware.
    But as uther39 points out it's not well respected.

    Bottom line? You should be 'OK'.
  3. Here is a technical review of a 600W PSU in that same eXtreme Power Plus family.

    It explains why those models of PSU are not well respected. In the end, the review mentions he feels that the 600W model should have been labels as a 450W PSU.

  4. The CM Extreme power plus 600W was only able to deliver 450W: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Cooler-Master-eXtreme-Power-Plus-600-W-Power-Supply-Review/1034/1
    The extreme power series of PSUs are absolutely craptastic. It may work because your CPU/GPU aren't power hungry, but I wouldn't put it near my $475 CPU/GPU.

    Your new parts on order are great choices and are very high quality items.

    Unfortunately, your PSU doesn't come close to matching the quality of your other parts.

    Hey man,

    What do you think about this PSU??/

    I can chop of the H100 and pick up a H60. And pick up this PSU.

    What do you think??? Will it be enough for a healthy proccessor, card OC???
  7. I had actually picked up my older PSU at a dirt cheap price from a colleague at work.
    And I read the review @ Rugger.
    It looks pretty bad. Thanks for pulling that up.

    Corsair GS600 is a solid option. A true 600W PSU.
    A better match for your parts and your overclocking goals.

  10. Thanks a lot guys!!!!
  11. I have an H80. If you value quiet, then I would go for a good quality air cooler over the H60 unless you want to invest in some better fans and a fan controller. Your ears will thank you.
