You can sure get much neater case wiring with this :D Even though I have heard that Modular PSU's add resistance, and are generally not as efficient as straight-through wire... Interesting concept though:

Looks like a good idea. I could definitely use one with my computer (although, I haven't had any problems with my Antec other than a rat's nest of cables).

Anyway you slice it, thermaltake PSUs aren't that great... stick with OCZ/ENERMAX/ANTEC/PC POWER&COOLING/SUPERFLOWER/etc and make sure they have a minimum of 24a on the +12v line needed for todays systems.

I beg to differ. I had the 560W TT PSU running an SLI system 24/7 without a single problem.

I have an antec 430w True Power thats alot more [/B]stable[B] than my thermaltake 480w silent pure power psu... so you see, its not all about the wattage. At the moment i don't run SLI and i don't ever plan too, running two video cards is a waste of money IMO. Btw, i forgot to add, a minimum of 24a/+12v for single video card systems and a minimum of 30a/+12v for SLI systems, read more about it HERE (http://forums.extremeoverclocking.com/showthread.php?t=136602) . All though your 560w maybe doing its job, humor me here, test your 3.3v/5v/12v rails using this guide HERE (http://forums.extremeoverclocking.com/showthread.php?t=137886)

Ps- In no way am i knocking your psu indirectly, i just think you could do better. ;)

Ya, but did you ever attempt to heavily overclock your system, meaning OC the cpu, memory, and video card? I've seen supposed "powerful" enermax noisetaker 485w. power supplies die out when being OC'd, just because of their weak Amps, go PC Power & cooling! :D

Hello! Just had Thermaltake 500 TWV die out on me over the weekend :thumbdwn: . Reseaching new psu for SLI and seems like everyone leans towards the pc power 510. I think I'm going to drop 2 bills for it but before I do does anyone have any suggestions? I don't want to loose another PSU so I'm willing to spend the extra cash.

Total system was overclocked about 20%, including CPU, video card and memory.

SnilloC... to make your decision alittle easier, i would highly recomend reading what i have already posted HERE (http://forums.extremeoverclocking.com/showthread.php?t=136602)

Ps- If i was going SLI, i would get the OCZ 520w psu with 5yr warranty and adjustable +3.3/+5/+12 rails.

I've got a TT680w running full load for 4 days straight without a rest either playing games or when browsing the web, folding in the background you get very stable rails their older PSU's wern't so great but their newer ones are excellent.

I'll stick with Seasonic and put up with the rat's nest. They make very quiet, very efficient powersupplies.

my dual 12V at 19A a piece will suffice for me.
