A good quality system but I would expect a more powerful Cpu Cooler, Say a H100 and a PSU of at least 750 watts

actuallythe 650 is more than enough to power the given parts. It doesn't allow for much headroom but for a pre-built system this looks to be very very decent.

The CPU cooler is plenty powerful enough even with this big overclock. Equally the power draw of the GTX680 is so low that 650W is also more than you need.

Sure you couldn't go SLI without the upgrade, but if you're planning on that then you can configure it before purchase.

The cable management on the back is amazing but the cables on the front could be put round the back for a tighter look IMO; however, compared to most pre-built systems I have seen, this is one of the best for cable management.

I know 650watts is adequate chaps, what I'm saying is for the price I would wish for some headroom

I saw a recommendation on the NewEgg details list for one of the 680 cards that said 500w psu.

Officially I don't know if that's correct, but obviously they'd be thinking of stock running rigs.

guys this gpu core was meant to be the 660 core and as such is only a low draw part so it doesnt need a monster psu, unlike the gk110 core which is coming later in the year, hat will dull the lights in the house

VB 10/10 for presentation?

really?

cables all tied down on the front equals a perfect score on presentation?

sorry dude but no.



"The Obsidian 650D definitely helps as there are so many places to tuck cables away, but even still we just can't get over how neat and tidy everything is."

so why no tuck those away?

8/10 in any rate my build thread for that alone.
