Question Coolmaster: Standard or Modular

Hi,

What is the difference between a Standard and Modular PSU?

In the case of the Coolmaster 1KW they offer both, which one are you recommending and why?

Real Power M1000 RS-A00-ESBA

Real Power Pro 1000W RS-A00-EMBA
http://www.coolermaster.com/products...ate=22&id=2519

Thank you,

Chess Gator

One is standard and the other is modular.

Modular is when the cables are removable from the PSU housing. Standard simply means the cables are not modular.

Question Will CoolMaster PSU fit in my pedestal case??

Hello

Will the CoolMaster Real Power M1000 http://www.coolermaster.com/products...ate=22&id=2532 PSU fit in a Silverstone Temjin TJ10 http://www.silverstonetek.com/produc...pno=tj10&area= pedestal case ??

How do I confirm it will fit in the case? Silverstone does not return my emails

Thank you,

Chess Gator

Try calling Silverstone up, they usually answer pretty quick... in a thick Taiwanese accent.

That PSU will fit fine in the TJ10. Here is a picture of a standard size PSU in it. I believe the Coolermaster is only 1-2in longer.

How is that PSU being held in place at the bottom of that case, is there some type of screw down plate?

Its mounted in the back with four screws like any other PSU/case.

With the CoolMaster PSU, I believe the FAN is on the bottom. If it goes in the bottom of the Silverstone case the FAN will be laid facing the bottom of the case. What would be your suggestion for this issue?

If you look at the picture DuckieHo posted, you will see that the psu in that case is a regular psu and just mounted upside down compared to the way it's mounted in a conventional (top psu mounted) case.

Okay, I did not realize is was acceptable to place a PSU upside down in a pedestal case!

As long as there's enough space for the air to get into the PSU, it doesn't really matter. Most like the PSU facing into the build so it can aid in exhausting heat from the case.
