A good 550 - 600 watt PSU would be more than adequate. I estimate total PSU load at around 300 watts. CPU cooler is overkill. For a non-OC'd system, the stock cooler would be more than adequate. Non-OC'd system does not need 6 case fans and a fan controller. As a budget system, I'd rate it as a 5 or 6. As a system with expansion potential, I'd rate it about an 8. Keep in mind that I am from the U. S. and I am unfamilar with SA prices. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer gary1 April 29, 2012 5:44:37 PM I think the PSU comes with the case. CPU is overkill, I just assumed he already had this system. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumIntel i5 proccessor with CoolerMaster V8 ?
