Default Suggestions on Reg sized Modular PSU.

I Need some suggestions for a reg sized Modular PSU that is capable of Tri Sli whether it's with 6pin to molex & 4 six pins already what have you. Must be regular sized as I don't have the room for a long psu.

This one should cover all your bases on doing a 3 way SLI config.
Lifetime warranty is also a good bonus as well.
I use the 750WLSP and will be upgrading to this very one myself (Mid-Tower + Mountain of cables = Messy as hell case).

Ahh okay, I didn't know exactally the rest of your system spec's so I opted for the lower end 800W unit to show you.
Ultra, although technically a 'store' brand for Tiger uses a really good P/S. Mine is dead silent, and very stable considering all the crap I have hooked into it.
I'll be hitting up that 800 come December, so I'll post some Before/After of what my case looks like with it in.
The 750LSP is great, just tooooooooooo many cables for my poor Apollo.

Glad this helped, just remember if you buy it to register it on Ultra's site for your Lifetime Warranty. They are really good at honouring that.

Regards,
ST

You might consider the Silverstone OP1000. 150mm long, has 6 PCI-E connectors, decent price for its output, and it seemed to hold its own when [H] tested it.

That said, I can vouch for the Ultra X3 1000, aside from the fact that it only has 4 PCI-E connectors.

MpG that psu is 220mm D 150mm W it's to long but thx.

I like the fact the Ultra is completely modular though to. Plus the wires are all slimline for easy hiding.

The X3 Is good that way. It comes from their First Line X2 (which thank GOD they don't sell anymore) and in the end we get better P/S from it.

If you end up getting it, post some pics. Like I said I'll be going with the 800-850w Modular come this month because I have a heart attack everytime I look into my case.

ST

Is it for your H2GO?

The Corsair HX1000 will fit and is mainly modular except for the 24-pin and one set of PCIE.

Yes it is Jack. The Coolermaster is beefy but it just has Way to many wires & won't be able to hide them nearly as well as I could a modular. I'll look at the Corsair for sure thx dude.

That is a nice psu but it's set up for 8pins instead of 6pins though dude.
