Hi guys this is my first post so I'm hoping that I have put this post in the right category.

Anyways, I had a quick hardware question that I needed some peoples opinion on.

I was looking for a nice looking PSU, around 900 to 1000 Watts for my PC.

I need the cables to the fully sleeved in black and preferrably a red LED fan inside too.

Do any of you know where i can find a PSU that fits this description

Also I don't mind if the PSU is modular so i can choose what cables to Put in, In fact that could be better too.
So just say what ever you think looks nice and has a reasonable price tag.
Thanks
Max

Usually only cheap crappy PSU's will have any lights in them at all, the Corsair GS series lights up blue though and they're not bad. What are you running that makes you think you need a whole 1000w? It's good to have some extra power but not to much or it doesn't run as efficently.

Yeh, I know but I have a 7970 6gb sapphire gfx card and I am thinking of getting another, plus most 1000 W PSU's just look nicer with the 1000 on the side xD

the lights aren't a must but i would like to have atleast a red color scheme

The most important part for me is the wires must be entirely sleeved, or all black/red or something

Most quality PSU's will have sleeves on them, I'm not sure how much more power the 6 Gig cards use, but if I suppose if you wanted to crossfire two 7970's, 1000w is a good amount.

These are great units: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Depending on how much you have to spend these are my two dream units, it really doesn't get better than these two: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

These ones are bad either, but, if your looking for something with so much power, I would just shell out tons of money on one that will last forever: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Yeah, I like the seasonic platinum one. Thats pretty nice looking too. Only problem is the price. I have the money there to spend its just thats alot for a PSU, also is i dont xfire them then, which I probably wont then I could go down to an 800W right? You know any nice in the 800 range?
Red color scheme, maybe red lights. Sleek looking. and sleeved cables
Also you can always see the cable wires like the yellow red black at the tips of the socket. do you know a good way to remove that? like maybe painting it or something. Some kind of other sleeving?
Or maybe even something that is already sleeved to the top

Thanks for the fast replys btw

Yeah. thanks. I was thinking of getting an XFX PSU they seem nice looking and have some nice reviews too.
That'll probably be my choice then. Thanks

Yea the XFX PSU's are great, they're made by SeaSonic, and they have really tight voltage regulation. The only downside they have is that they are just barely able to pull out a 80+ Bronze efficentcy. Mine runs really cool even with my filter on the bottom of it and I usually won't hear it at all.

Hi - consider this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 850w gold - nets to $140
I have the 650w version of this PSU and it works great is very quiet, and modular
