It's fine the way it is, functionality-wise. It's not like the connector is gonna fall out, well, at least if you don't tug on it.

You could perhaps heat up the motherboard-side connector with a...

I myself prefer a more sleek look, and for the cost of the 780T would probably go with either Enthoo Luxe (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811854006) or the H630...

The 1kW EVGA G2 is a bit overkill, but if you wanna supersize for whatever reason, it has some great value.

The 750W G2 is more than enough power even for 970 OC SLI. Amazon...

That's a pretty good post: Specific question and clear emphasis on your wants and needs, you even told us the intended budget.

Too bad we don't know where you're buying from. :p

The (HX) versions have CapXons instead of NCCs. The layout is exactly the same. Gold efficiency and stable, low-ripple platform should mean those CapXons won't be under too much stress, so it should...

In a machine that will barely pull 50-60W under full load, any of the PSUs from the list should last 5+ years without trouble (provided they're properly cleaned/dusted at least once a year).

For sheer build quality and longevity, I'd say SS-430GB, though if you can find the 380W version cheaper, even better. Though paying $70 for a PSU in a $450 machine is a bit much, I have to say.

Recipe for success.

Though I don't think Rosewill's giving up SF that easily. Possibly SF is unable to meet the demand in a time frame acceptable to NewEgg... Plus they (NE) don't want to put all...

The 12V is regulated directly from the LLC primary. This is actually somewhere between indy and dc-dc, since all that's coming off of the main transformer is 12V, but it's dual mag-amp'd into 5V and...

Ugh that name. I know it's shallow thinking, but I'd never buy anything branded Edison, knowing it specifically means Thomas Edison the inventor thief.

Also, AXi has, in my opinion, enough of a build quality advantage to warrant the extra $25.

BeQuiet and FSP have a long-standing special relationship; I'm pretty sure our friend meant FSP's retail versions, and not modified OEM partner versions. :)

But yeah, it's worth a mention I...

Coil whine usually doesn't affect either the PSU's or the components' operation, at least not to a measurable degree, since the resonant frequencies are typically...

No, I meant the whole primary stage of the PSU, meaning the part after APFC (the primary caps are actually APFC caps) and before the main transformer.

That's a ceramic disk capacitor, though the marking is kind of odd. It would suggest an 18 pF (picoFarad) cap with a +/- 5% tolerance. I've only seen multipliers 10, 15 and 22 (of those near to 18),...

Any real voltage source will drop it's output voltage when asked for a lot of current, this is because of it's internal resistance. There indeed is some (considerable, actually) "cushioning" in the...
