    PSU for Narwhal build

    I would like to get something fully modular because I am not the greatest at clean cable management, and I saw this SS psu on sale on Newegg. Would it be worth getting this over the Corsair 650tx?

    There's also HX650 for the same price for a limited time, it's also an excellent choice.

    I have a full size case, will I have any issues with the lengths of the cables?

    Possibly. The 4+4 pin extra CPU cable is what usually is too short for full size case. Review says the cables are 22" (56cm) so go wild with a measuring tape to see if there's any chance or if you need to buy extension cable too.


    cheap extension cable http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16812198024

    If youy need something fancier, get the EPS 8-pin extension cable from here. No clue if any of the big online stores is retailer, Newegg isn't.
