And I just don't value closed loop liquid coolers. A Hyper EVO will be just as good for less hassle; probably quieter too. m 0 l turbodsm96x July 5, 2012 4:48:30 PM Very well. What PSU would be ideal? m 0 l FinneousPJ a b B Homebuilt system July 5, 2012 4:55:19 PM Given that the 480 is rather power hungry I would go for a quality 500W or more unit like this for example http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004RJ8EKI/?tag=pcpapi-20 or Corsair 500W here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
