Default psu

hey i was just wondering wat would be better out of a st75f or a st75z silverstone psu?

im goin to be running
e6600 oc to 3.4
8800 gtx sli
x-fi gamer pro
g skill 2gb pc 6400 800mhz 5-5-3-4
735 bigwater watercooling
320 gb seagate hdd 7,200 rpm
evga 680i mb
coolermaster elite 330 case

i know the st75z is sli cert. but the st75f has a larger fan and its modular. does modular make a diff? and is it better?

thanks in advance

Default Re: psu

modular is useful. it means unused power cables can be physically disconnected from the psu to remove useless clutter. you do know that if you are going to be using 2 8800GTXs you will be needing 4 PCI-E power connectors as each one takes two? i also wouldn't be counting on overclocking your e6600 to 3.4GHz. sure it can probably be done but you can't count on it. finally i'm not a big fan of any of the TT BigWater products. they are not great performers.
