    Default Which cases will fit this psu?

    HI,
    As this is my first post here can I say to all members and admin a warm (you must be joking its 5c !!) thanks for having me onboard.
    It,s always a daunting task posting a first post to a new forum but i do require an opinion or two from the well versed forumites that hang around on here .
    Well here-goes, this morning I travelled over to Halifax to see a Polish enthusiast friend of mine.
    He has a w/c,d rig in a Lian-LI pc 7077 case,he,s taken out the psu and its up for sale- its nearly new it,s one of the well respected Pcpower and cooling T1kwsr "brutes" which is longer than atx spec.
    My question is :- what cases will this drop into bearing in mind I live in the UK, and Lian-LI may just be out of my price range,
    Can I leave it up to you to come up with a few suggestions so that i can then grab some prices and read up a few reviews.
    In the USA this as you probably know sells at $430 which is near as dammit 260 plus shipping to the UK so at 125 which is what he,ll take off me I,m thinking would be a good buy for my next and perhaps final build for now!
    By the way you may be wondering what psu he,s got in the case now ,it,s another of his 3 x pc power &cooling 510,s.
    thanks

    Hi oshimaida and welcome to pureoverclock

    The Only question that really needs to be adressed is what else are you going to put in your case?

    What I'm saying is...if you intend to fit a lot of hard drives for example and the drive bays are opposite the psu mounting then maybe you will have a problem.

    I've had the 1K SR in an Antec 900 with no problems but the bays behind it were empty except for fans. Now to be sure there are better/bigger cases out there so perhaps you should look at which cases you like....whether you like bling or prefer function over form etc.

    There have been some good reviews of cases here at PureOC http://www.pureoverclock.com/review.php?cat=6 maybe have a read through those or alternatively give us a price you are willing to pay and an idea of whether you intend to upgrade (maybe to watercooling?) etc so we can help and advise

    Thanks Gumpydaddy for those wise words of wisdom and forethought. yes i came from Halifax hyped that I had the oportunity to buy into something good and cheaply,I really gave no thought to the points you raised.
    I may go onto watercooling at some stage but funds will be tight for now so It looks like air only but I can still dream even at my age.
    I suppose as most of my spare gear is 775 based then I will be forced to stick with "wot I,ve got"
    BUT you,ve got me thinking with your comment of it fitting your 900 case - should fit my 902 then, if I lift the bottom hd cage up higher! to allow for the extra room required.
    I,ll keep you posted on that one and thanks for the response and seriously the comments you made -I do appreciate them .
    thanks

    At your age? I had to look, thought you were in school still or something

    Age is no barrier here my friend, nor experience, there are a few of us "over fifties" ...all have something to offer

    If you discount the "486" days I've really only been actively building for around two years

    Edit: if you do get that psu then get the purchase details too. there is a seven year manufacturers warranty that would be good to have access to

    Apart from the fact that you know the guy you may find other psu's more modern for sale either cheaper or modular (there are a whole lotta cables to find a home for on that one)

    There's a 1k sr on ebay just now and for around 150 you could buy an 850watt top of the line quality psu new that will easily handle what you want to throw at it

    Just as an example the 910 from pcp&c is very close on performance and more efficient, the anteq signature 850 seasonic 850 and even the xfx are very similar are about as good as it gets you just need to look for the deals

    Welcome to Pure OC ! As far as the warranty, if something were to happen to this unit, you would have to have your friend return it, seeing as the sales receipt is in his name. If you want me to, I can ask my contact at OCZ about this, they now own PC Power and Cooling. Let me know and I'll find out for you.

    Yes thanks Skyguy and Doctor Death for the warm welcome.
    I dont believe that Grumpydaddy is grumpy after all he,s been most charming with me!

    To answer grumpydaddy about the psu on Ebay it is the same one, he told me he had it on with a 150 reserve- I just don,t think he,ll get that or more for it.

    To answer Doctor Death,s point over the warranty issue it was very kind of you to offer but I,m going along with Grumpy daddy on this now- there are plenty of good psu,s out there, i,ve a few myself in boxes awaiting builds.I really don,t think I need it now but I was tempted.

    The Antec Truepower 850 I,m using now reviewed well I think, although this had to be rma,d to Holland for a new one recently,
    and 2 of my 4 Be Quiet 650,s jacked in also they went back to Germany for new returns Oh and I ve still got a Coolermaster real power m700 with no output also to rma yet.
    I,m a bit unlucky to say the least with psu,s hence my interest with the Turbo cool 1kwsr which started my post, so you can,t really blame me for looking for Mr Reliable in the psu world can you.

    I think that among certain manufcturers and then only certain models you can get a product that "should" be reliable but it will still be luck of the draw.

    So, antec for example, not historically known for great psu's but have a gem in their Signature series

    Seasonic ...well regarded generally, and a new series is on the cards. the current M(modular) series 850 will be in the same ballpark as the Signature

    Do my comments preclude the purchase of other makes? No of course not but the subject is as big and at times as important as buying a new motherboard

    I think you would be on the right track if you run a psu that under load is in the 50-70% of rated output range

    I had an antec TPQ 850 that had to be rma'd too ...it seems to take a while whichever manufacturer here in UK.

    I think your friend will be lucky to get 100. You might want to watch prices there and if you have psu's to rma consider putting the refurbished unit on to help fund your newer bigger better model

    .....and to clear up one last matter...... Grumpy is just the opinion of my kids

    I noticed that your thinking about adding the Scythe Mugan cooler, are you sure you will have enough of room in the 902 once the Mugan is installed on your motherboard ?

    Yes thats a seriously good point!

    I,ll try to explain why I wanted to TRY to go down that route if it was possible.
    I,ve 2 mugans and 1 infinity which are the same hsf- in the stock cupboard and when I first built the 902 /680i rig I did try it on my open platform first and the reason I removed it was that in the "normal "orientation east/west this hsf leant very heavily against the nb heatsink so much so that I was concerned that it was not allowing it to seat squarely or at least reducing the contact pressure on that side I do use the scythe 775 cpu cooler stabilizers not the black plastic push pins and as you know Q6600,s when jacked up to 3.4-3.6 ghz put out a lot of heat and I didn,t want to go down the route of stripping it out when in the case when eventually going up to 3.4 /3.6ghz
    But before I thought to try it north/south on the open platform,that would be when in the case -fans facing up to the big boy in the roof I took it off the mobo.

    Then as I,ve also the OCZ vanquisher & the AKASA ak965 spare and at the time the evo blue, I went with the evo -I just thought that as the fins appeared more denser and was in my engineers eyes better engineered- be a bit more thermally efficient(if that makes sense)also the round copper base was beautifully polished too and "it emits a nice blue light" it would be the better one of the three( I stand to be corrected on this).

    Looking at the set up now in the 902 case there really isn,t a lot of room above the evo to take the extra size of the mugan/infinity hsf,s and again I agree you,re right on that one -I hadn,t thought that one out had I.

    So where do I go from here,the evo isn,t quiet as it is,(I don,t have the variable speed controller) and the reviews to it aren,t too kind also but then I don,t game apart from the odd fps I put on it sometimes , my interest is basically building and component technology I suppose thats the engineer in me.!! I,m only running at 334@1.3v so heats not a problem at present.
    I could source up some quieter fans or replace it altogether-what do you recommend ? Thermalright 120 maybe?OR I,ve just remembered that I ,ve got a Cool It domino a.l.c still in the box perhaps that?

    What I will say though is that if you can offer a good argument for a recommendation I WILL act upon it when I come to rip everything out of this rig.
    But first comes my next build- Antec 193/ Antec cp 850 psu,Abit ip35 pro xe c/w e5200 overclocked up to 3.4/3.6 again,Evga yes evga this time not xfx 8800gts gpu.
    This will no doubt throw up more problems for me to ponder upon and ask advice here. OH!! wonder if one of the Scythes will fit in this case with the Abit mobo.!!!?

    Thanks again Doctor Death for the point you raised --yes you see I am the impulsive type or am I the compulsive type Hmmm! got me thinking on that one,spent a lot of cash up to now Ah well you,re only here this way but once.

    Antec 900 case will fit a TRUE but, at least in one orientation, the side fan if fitted needs modding or omitting...the mugen is the same height....now all you need to do is check dimensions of the 193 against those of the 900

    The 1K SR reached 46 ...which surprised even me ...I expected maybe 75
