Bindibadgi; do you guys have an ETA on that? I need to buy a PSU rather sharpish really, but since it's Enermax, I am willing to wait a while :p

[QUOTE=biebiep
I see

But then my question is this: we (=my grandpa and me) are kind of working on a super-silent-wooden-watercooled-custom-case
What kilowatt PSU would you recommend then(In terms of efficiency,sound&cable length) for a 70% load on it (lots of lights, cupple of pomps and fully automatic drive-bay lifts (yeah, its going to be a little bit over the top there)

PS: Not the Coolermaster Ultimate 900 plz (Belgium is slow to take on new hardware apparently and I can't find that one anywhere)[/QUOTE]

I WOULD NOT run even a small DC motor in with my components. depending on its load they can have a tremendous start up amperage. A little windshield wiping motor of 5 running amps spikes at 40 on start according to my amp meter. (I know this because I have turned the motor into a dc generator) along with the heavy start load they will also send electrical noise through the wiring in your system. Not something I want to have fed into my gfx card, ram or processor.

:D Something in the back of my mind knew there was a problem with it.

Appreciate the confirmation.

That's the minor dilemma I had, 1000W and modular? Or would a HX620 do? What would modular really do for me?

I found that I'd only have one of the strings of modular cables unplugged anyway, so plumped for the TX750. I may have to rma it soon as I think the fan's catching on the plastic guard. It makes a very minor noise, but my previous Hiper 530w by comparison is quiet!

Mo_;

oooh, sounds interesting. Problem is, I need the new rig going by the end of September. A month is a fairly long time to not have a PC in Uni. Are there any details out about the new range yet? It's hard to know whether to just buy this, or wait out the new Enermax, when even a google search only comes up with 2 hits and no information on it!

1250w and that seems like standard sized!

6 rails?! Christ!

Do we have any idea how much it is going to cost?

I can't really say at the moment.
Skiddywinks 29th August 2008, 23:20 Quote
Not even a little clue? I'm expecting more than this PSU, but how much more I don't know...

Anyway, thanks for the info thus far. I think i might still just have to buy the HX1000W =/

It will be very, very crap quality.

In fact, all those extra's look exceedingly poor.

So does that mean it will like, simply not work, or will it mess up my components, I dont know! Im not very tech savvy, the case i chose comes with a 650w psu if that makes a diff.
