Quality case and quality PSU. Voted hot!

This should get hot as that is a cracking price.

Heat added

Im after just a PSU that will run a Nvidia Gforce 460 any one know of a good one?

Any of these would be more than enough

ebuyer.com/pro…514
ebuyer.com/pro…491

or for a modular one

ebuyer.com/pro…920

after using a few cheap cases i got this one. wow. i will never buy a cheap case again!

i think i paid around this for the case alone, so HOT!

Thank you for your help

I like the look of the ebuyer.com/pro…514 one

But what is a modular one? whats the difference?

With a normal PSU all of the cables are connected directly into the PSU and if you dont use some of them you have to find somewhere to hide them in the case.

With a modular PSU usually only the 24 pin and 4/8 pin are connected directly into the PSU and then the other cables, molex, sata, PCI-e etc are included as loose cables that you connect to sockets on the PSU, this means you only have to attach the cables you are actually going to use and thus can cut down on the amount of unused cables in the case.

Thanks for clearing that up, ive got a modular one at the mo then which is quite new but only 450w so that wont run the GForce 460 will it as think i need 650w like you have said.

you can use this to calculate what psu you should need
extreme.outervision.com/PSU…ine
.....think 500W should be enough tbh..i'm running a gforce 260 fine with that..unless you're thinking of sli then u need a bigger psu

Technically a 450W PSU should be enough as a PC with a 460 in probably actually uses under 300W when under load - but 650w PSUs seems to be at a good price point at the moment, they offer good upgrade ability and mean that you will not be using the PSU at close to its max, so it should run cooler and quieter (also many PSUs have their best efficiency at about the 50% usage mark).

Ive got an Intel Quad Core, 8GB Ram, 2 DVD drives and 2 hard drives and an Nvidia 8600GT running at the mo from the 450w so dont think i should risk getting the Geforce 460 graphics card without upgrading the PSU?

Hackintosh by any chance?

According to the website this case is Lite version. Any idea what's the difference between lite and normal?

For peace of mind I would agree. Which 450W model do you have as you could probably recoup £30odd back on that by selling it.

I thought it's all to do with the 12V rail, i.e. the 470 GTX requires 38A along the 12V rail as a minimum I think.

Palit suggest that you have a PSU capable of outputting about 24A (or 288W) on the 12v rail for their 460.

Most if not all good PSUs will be able to do that, even my CX400 outputs a maximum of 31A (372W) on the 12v rail.

Just bought this combo from scan at a similar price on their TO deals.

Excellent case, really can't fault it for the price, so much better finished than the Antecs at the same price point.

PSU is more than adequate for running a high-end single VGA card setup, bit skimpy on the number of 4 pin molex connectors though, only 3 I think, so if you've still got a lot of devices that need them you'll need some power splitters. 2 SATAx3 cables, so 6 in all. 2xPCI-E 6+2, so SLI 460s ok but not anything involving cards that require 2 power connectors each (reallistically you'll want a higher spec psu than this anyway). This doesn't actually get very good reviews in comparison with some of the pricier mid-range supplies in this class but at this price it's pretty good value imo.

With the advanced version you get an extra top-mounted fan, fan filters, and 2.5 to 3.5" SDD adaptor. Main feature missing on the lite is the external top-mounted SATA power/data connectors that allow you to plug an external drive straight in without need for a caddy - very handy if you want a quick and easy backup solution. The lite does, however, have a external top-mounted E-SATA connector, so an externally powered drive will connect without a problem.

[Edit] The antec modular 650w chrisvenn linked to in #4 is probably the best modular psu in this class and available on scan TO for just over £61 atm, although they did send me a completely dead one last week, hence went for the CM GX650 whilst it was so cheap.

I have this case and I'm absolutely delighted with it, it has excellent cooling and ample room, the PSU on the other hand is distinctively average, see the review below:

hardocp.com/art…w/9

I bought a CoolerMaster Centurion 5 II Black Mid Tower bundled with one of theirs PSU. Very disappointed with the case due to the vibration noise from the chassis. I have always used CoolerMaster for my pc build. But this time round it has let me down in terms of build quality. Hope the CM690 II is better.

These are good cases and including a decent power supply makes this a good deal

case only for £45 here if you want a better psu

You can get the advanced white version for 71.48 pounds at box.co.uk with free post
