I want to put an ATX PSU in the Micro ATX case I'm getting ready to buy because all of the power supplies on newegg for Micro ATX cases are 400 watt and under. I want a 650 so I can leave the doors open for SLI in the future.

The physical dimensions look good (PSU: 5.9" x 6.1" x 3.4" CASE: 16.80" x 7.70" x 16.90") but I wasn't sure if there was something else I needed to know before trying it out.

The fans cooling looks a little light for cross firing anything major , but more importantly that psu is junk and would struggle to make 650 watt peak
Its an olde inefficient and generally crappy psu that you just shouldn't use

but it would fit the case

suggestions?



without knowing your other components a suggestion would be a blind guess

so

1/ get a BRONZE or better rated PSU . These , and all other 80+ psu's have electronic monitoring of input and output voltages

2/ http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm

3/ Antec have some very good pricing , so do Corsair . Seasonic if you can find one cheap enough
