Default PSU advice

I have read some revies of OCZ PSU 700W Modular they've said that the cables are short.

I was wondering if the cables can be hide at the back plate of the Mobo thingy, I have HAF 932 Case.

Any other good PSU to suggest? please do.


Thank you

As its modular, the cables you don't need don't get plugged in.

There are only 3 hardwired cables, the power cables, so hiding is only 1 cable.

I read too the cpu is short, so just buy the 8" extendsion and not worry.

There aren't too many power supplies that tout being silent.

Mainly because keeping the power supply cool and ventilated is of primary concern.

I think your best bet would be finding one with an adjustable fan control, I think many Enermax ones have that.

At least my old 535 watt did.

for a gfx card; the 5770 supports dx11 but a 4890 is just better performance wise.
