I already told him not to use the power supply that comes with the case.

The only good Raidmax power supplies are of the Topower/Tagan models and those aren't sold with cases.

450 Watt FSP Fortron minimum.
Newegg.com - FSP Group SAGA+ 450R ATX12V 450W Power Supply 100 - 240 V NEMKO, TUV, CSA, IEC, UL, CE - Retail
There have been other power supplies suggested in this thread.

ya and another thing on one of the reviews this guys said this

"Pros: Looks Good, Strong and sturdy construction, very easy access to interior from both sides, fans well placed

Cons: Hopefully just a freak occurence, but the Power supply (my main reason for buying this unit) was DOA. Ruined my day.

Other Thoughts: This probably would have received a five egg rating if the PSU worked.." thats just kinda scared me....

and this is the supply

38 amps is too low you need a psu with a higher amps rating

Once again do not read reviews off the seller page. Read them from review websites..

And once again, DO NOT USE the power supply that comes with that raidmax case.

*tomorrow* , i can't stand u spelling it so wrong again.

Case: NCIX.com - Buy Coolermaster CM 690 Mid Tower Black ATX Case 5X5.25 5X3.5INT No PS Front USB Sound Firewire & eSATA - RC-690-KKN1 In Canada.

PSU: NCIX.com - Buy Coolermaster Extreme Power 500W ATX 12V V2.01 Silent Power Supply 20/24PIN 120MM Fan - RP-500-PCAR In Canada.

im not sure if that is in your price range but its the cheapest (not half bad) stuff i could find. I would spend more on the psu if possible though.
