Default What wattage do i need?

OK my current spex r in my siggy, but i'm also planning to put in 2 CC (UV), like 3 more fans, and a fan controller. I'm getting a new PSU/Case soon, and i was wondering what kinda range i will need for my PSU (like 300-400?). thanks guys.

PS please don't post PSU/Case Combos, i want only PSU's and UV reactive is better than not

The most seems to be 420-500W that you would need.

Thats a nice tool, but for those who mod their case and use things that the normal pc user does not use, this does not work with.

For instance I have hd coolers on my three drives. I have a front bay fan controler, and not enough places to enter all the fans one may have. But it is a nice tool.

Yeah, but some if not all powered mods come with needed wattage, and if not, then it's usually not more than 15W
