You're gonna get right connectors with the AX 650 too tho, for one.
Even if the computer can draw 600W under 100% load (which it will never be running at), most of the time it will be idling around 80W, can't imagine it needing more than 400 when gaming.

Since we're a bit on PSU topic right now....
I currently have a TX750w, (that I got for free 4 years ago with my old PC) non modular... lots of extra wires clogging up space and stuff... corsair really put LOTS of connectors on this one...
I don't really care for price.. Need something FULLY modular (because it obviously looks better finished ;D).. and I was looking directly at corsair website for an AX750 and individual sleeved cables...
I plan on o/c'ing my cpu as much as I can (hopefully up to the 5.0 club ;D), so should I get a smaller PSU, stick with a 750 or what? (probably by next summer, SLI setup)
Stop complaining about PSU's being overkill, sometimes they come in at a good price point, on more than one occasion i have seen the AX850 on sale for the same price as the 750, and there is nothing wrong with tons of overkill, 750/850 may be overkill for a quadcore/670, but it's not overkill for a quadcore/sli, there is nothing more upsetting than to get a new GPU or second GPU only to find out after it arrives that you are a few amps short on your PSU
nor can you point to efficiency loss, if you really care about those 50 or so watts you are wasting by not being in the optimal power range, shut off a light somewhere

It is not the count of your posts, but the quality of your posts that matter... luckily, I have both. ^_<
Like, if you buy a larger PSU won't that just cover you pretty much forever no matter how power hungry a system you make in the future? Seems like it would be economical. Or does it cost significantly more on your electricity bill to run a larger PSU?
I could understand suggesting that a 10,000TB hard drive might be overkill, but it seems like the go-to critique is suggesting a 650 watt PSU instead of a 700 watt PSU.

Alright, so following up from previously, the Corsair C70 really does shine and look so much better with an 'actual' side window, imo It looks even nicer now.

Just got my case today and just got it almost finished. Just need to tie down the cables in the back and make sure there's no way I can hide the other cables or just sleeve them all white, I haven't decided yet.
Next upgrade on my list is to upgrade these two crappy ass 22" monitors to 24" or bigger and to replace all the fans with white led fans just need to wait for my paycheck to buy those next week. Other than that I think it's fine. Once I'm completely finished, cables will be tied off in the back and it'll move to the desk on the left. And this case is so damn heavy, I pulled a muscle in my shoulder lifting it. I know, I know, I need to exercise more
Oh and, I WANT A GTX670 IN SLIT NAO!
