  1. You are good to go buddy BUT if you want to save money then downgrade on the power supply wattage. There is no way I can see that build utilize 750 watts.

    Edit: Perhaps a power supply like this would be enough

  2. thanks
  3. Anyone else think there are faults
  4. Will a 620w antec of the same type be OK. Also Can you plug fans into the Power supply or only the mobo since i only have 1 chassis connector on Mobo and i have three fans will it be ok
  5. So are you going to downgrade on the power supply?....
    Technically, the 750 watt power supply will work but it is a waste of money since your build will not draw anywhere near 750 watts.

    I just realized the stores you listed are Australian so let me change that power supply to this:

    or you can even settle with this:

    The HD 7870 GHZ edition recommend a 500 watt power supply or greater, though this an overestimation. In truth, the amps is what matters and the 7870 needs around 27 amps on a COMBINED 12v rail. The Neo 520 has 40 amps on a combined 12v rail and the Antec High current gamer 620 has 48 amps.

    Edit: Yes you can connect fans to the power supply by a molex adapter, though you will not be able to control fan speeds and it will run at 100% .
  6. You will also need 3 to 4 pin adapter for the 120mm case fan.. But they are very cheaply avaliable
  7. So I will be able to use all three fans and if so how . I think the fans used come with and adpater
    cirrect me if wrong

    I am not sure about the fan that comes with it though will it be able to be used too
  8. would it be better to buy this as a motherboard

    you have the 2 coolermasters which have 3 to 4 pin adapters and a 140mm factory case fan already with 4 pin so you just need 1 more 3 to 4 pin adapter for the 120mm fan
  10. This topic has been moved from the section CPU & Components to section Systems by Mousemonkey
  11. There are actually 4 fans 2 that come with case and 2 that is bein gbought that would mean that you would have three fans running full blare
