    I would get a better quality power supply, and with better qualtiy, and with that quality, you can use less power watts rating, so get the same price.

    Why not just use identical case intake/exhaust fans?

    slo0pyj0e wants a blue LED in the front for color effect. I have an 80mm blue LED in the front of my case

    So you don't want a blue LED fan in front?

    na...dont care that much about the led...the ps has blue leds in it....


    btw...i know a lot of you guys like the ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 but i read several reviews on it and the load temp as well as the idle temp are fairly high...the one i have chosen is going to be the best as fair as price and quality goes...

    it has lower temps all around....

    I think you will be disappointed by an early failure in the RaidMax... we sure see a lot of them come to the shop dead... but I don't know the percentage.

    First off, your video card is actually a motherboard model. Please clarify that. Also, everything else looks fine except the PSU. It is absolute rubbish. I'd go with this one instead. It's more reliable and provides more power on the +12V rail as well.

    It's that way in both your posts. Please correct it. And I recommend the FSP PSU over both those PSUs. As raybay said, they're not worth their price.

    thanks for the feedback...

    i ordered the psu already so i guess i should have waited a bit long on feed back. i read some reviews on it and what i found was that is was surprisingly good. i guess i let you guys know how it all turns out...thanks guys

    What video card are you getting? Also, whether or not the PSU lasts depends on how much power you pull from it.

    Antec or not, it is not likely that a 500 Watt power supply for $39.99 is going to be worth much or to last very long. Antec has been having lots of failures lately.

    It should be okay, since his PC's probably not going to pull more than 250-300W from it. But yes, I wouldn't go with the BP500UB, since it's B-stock. The FSP PSU I recommended before is much better.
