Hello, looking for some advice on a power supply to get for my system as the one I have at the moment is too loud and the 24 pin and 8 pin cables aren't long enough to be hidden sufficiently.
Intel Core i5-3570k
WD black 1TB HDD
8GB corsair vengeance
NZXT Phantom full tower
I need a power supply that can obviously power all this (I think I was recommended a 600w), budget of £100 and I would prefer it to be fully or semi-modular and have cables long enough to make use of the cable management of that case.
NZXT Hale90 650W (£95 @ OCUK / £100 @ Ebuyer) http://skinflint.co.uk/557338
Noise rating of 16-18.5dBA. Reviews of the 750W version show that the fan doesn't go above 1000RPM, even on full load. Normal Dual Ball bearing.
Based on the measurements for the 750W version, the cables on the NZXT Hale90 are: 20+4pin, PCIe, SATA and peripheral (to the first connector) are 55cm, 4+4pin is 75cm.
Agree that a 550W PSU is more than enough, even if you CF in the future: be quiet! Dark Power Pro P10 550W (£95 @ AriaPC) http://skinflint.co.uk/790408
11.7-12.9dBA, max fan speed of 1500RPM, but reviews show the 750W version reaching 1000RPM on full load. SilentWings 2, FDB.
