Description

Ongoing build, simply upgrading parts over time as and when my meager budget allows.

Case has been upgraded to Zalman Z11 plus. 6 fans installed.

Next on the list for the future = MoBo and CPU upgrade.

Ignore the prices on this site they are grossly inflated compared to the prices I paid lol.

Maybe don't worry about the Mobo and CPU for now, go for a case upgrade.

You must be wanting to add a lot of upgrades by buying a 1000W PSU.

that psu isnt really high quality i would change it to a evga 1500w(the prices are similar). 400$ on A 256GB SSD IS CRAZY. -Upgrade to a intel i7 5790k this fall and a z97 mobo this fall.

The Corsair RM1000 is a very good Power Supply. I've used it in builds myself and it's probably the best power supply I, personally, have worked with. The modular cables are very flexible, allowing for much better cable management, and it just looks sleek.

not the highest quality its whats on the inside not the look the parts in it suck.

Well, they say that due to capacitor aging, the PSU loses its maximum capacity over time.

I certainly don't NEED a 1KW supply and I doubt most people who have one need it either. I simply prefer an PSU that is rated at at double the likely max wattage my system is likely to pull, purely because it should hopefully be less stressed, produce less heat and be more likely to last longer.
