Oh, I see now...
So just sell everything but the power supply. Or shove a different one in.

Im not a big fan of multi railed power supplies. Especially a 600 watt with four 12V rails.

Still a good power supply, but I would always reccomend a single 12V silverstone over one of thier quad railed ones.

honestly 1 rail ftw

thats why you don't add the rail amperage (because of loss of efficiency)

i still think it deserves honorable mention for bang for yoru buck considering its 99.99 at most places, and modular at that.
