Need Help Choosing a PSU

This is what my main components will look like:

Mobo - Asus Maximus Gene V (micro atx)
GPU - EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC
Processor - i7 3770k
(not sure on cooling unit yet any help on that would be much appreciated)

As for PSU I'm thinking Apevia Iceberg atx 680W but not sure if this is a good fit for my build. If anyone has some recommendations that would be awesome.

**Also my case is the Silverstone FT03, so hes going to be a squeeze :)

    The Hale is OK. Not the best.
    The Silverstone is just bad.
    The Antec is fine. I'd probably get this.

    I hear ya on that! I think there's a Rosewill almost identical the the "blue led"
  5. Im almost positive Im getting the Nzxt Hale82 750W if, and it's a big if, it would fit in the designated PSU area in the FT03. The only information about that spot on Silverstones website is the depth which is 180mm which is 7.0 inches. Anyone have any info
  6. Scratch that idea, that is the American version of newegg.ca and there is no NZXT Hale82s in Canada. Any other ideas

    $75 but $14 shipping (wtf), modular 750w

    It's actually pretty decent. My friend runs an i5 @ 5GHz and 660 Ti SLI with it.
  8. Thank you all for the input. I ended up doing a little more research and went with the SeaSonic M12. Going with the FT03 I figured that modular is pretty key since I;m going to be tight for space as it is. I;m going to want as much air flow as possible. But thanks again guys for all the input, I read ever review and all the customer feedback on each one that was recommended lol.

    Cheers

    Thanks again for all your research sir. I haven't clicked the cash out button as of yet because I'm watching one more video on the XFX Core Edition Pro550W. Depending on how in detail this guy goes and after a tit more research I will decide if modular is as important as overall quality.

  12. Well modular is needed only if u have tons of cables (850W +)

    And that XFX has cable but you can easily managa them(I have TX 750W tooooooons of cables but my case can handle them)

    Both are made by seasonic you cant go wrong.Take the cheapest one
