Yes, Tom. I didn't write that, but the HX and AX series of Corsair PSUs are great. I should know, I've owned probably 6 or 7 of them in the past 3 years. Never had a single problem with any of them. I have an Ax 850 in this rig now. Consider this a recommendation from me. The HX is semi modular, the 24 pin and the 8 pin cables are permanently attached, all the other cables are modular. The AX PSUs are fully Modular (Corsair's top of the line) including the 24/8 pin.

If there are only a few dollars difference, I'd recommend to my friend to get the full modular Corsair AX series, or the SeaSonic X Gold series. I was sold on full modular PSU's when I opened the box to mine. It makes any kind of maintenance 100% easier in my opinion. The semi-modular design is a good value though, especially when you catch one on sale.

The best part about the fully modular ones is that if they do go out, just unplug everything, RMA it, when you get the new one, sit it in there and plug the cables back in. Beats rewiring the whole thing.

But it is your budget mate but from past experience I always wished afterwards I had gone the extra mile with the gear (especially the case) when building the Sandy.
Thanks for the recommendations This build is for a mate so I'll have a few words and see what we can do about the budget. I know exactly what you mean about going the extra mile - I've been kicking myself for not getting a modular PSU in my Desktop here. Just to confirm, you did mean the HX650, as in the Corsair HX650? G is right next to H so I'd rather ask than be unsure.

Tom
Sorry Tom typing too fast again the Corsair HX 650 0r the Corsair HX 750 (semi modulars) the 750 is a tad more expensive and personally I like the semi mods myself as the fixed cabling is easily hidden away in that HAF XM I mentioned - behind the motherboard there is a large cavity

Thanks again guys. I'll have a look at the HXs then because semi-modular sounds ideal really. I can't see myself needing to remove the 24 pin

Good move Tom and just to give you an idea of the space in the HAF XM this is mine.

The HAF XM is a mid tower, but has plenty of space behind it and enough space inside for almost any component. This is mine. It will hold a Noctua NH-D14 and an 11" graphics card with room to spare.

Most of the time. I bought the Corsair HX750 I have in the rig I'm building a while back before deciding to put the project on hold and get some more use out of my XP rig (I'm glad I did; I just wasn't ready yet). Since then, Corsair changed the arrangement of the sockets. If the PSU ever died, either in or out of warranty, I would wind up with the newer style and would have had to redo my cables, something that rates on my dread scale slightly higher than a root canal without Novocaine. Instead, I found a new older style HX750 on Amazon and glommed onto that one for a spare (it also came in handy for bench testing). Even that one had slightly different cables. My first PSU had SATA power cables that were designed for top mounting of the PSU (although it would have been easy to reverse the three punch down connectors and twist the end connector around to allow for bottom mounting. All of the cables were ribbon cables. The newer PSU, even though the sockets are the same arrangement, has some slightly different cablees. The SATA power cables were redesigned for bottom PSU mounting. The PCIe power cables are nice looking sleeved cables instead ribbon cables (being the lazy, old bi...broad I am, I used one of them for my build). There were some other minor changes but nothing that wouldn't make them interchangeable.

Yep mate and if you compare it with say the Storm Trooper the only difference is the depth (25mm) and frankly it has less the feature that the XM has and less fans The only one that I can see that beats it for size is that that Cosmos II Ultra and it does not appeal to me because I don't reckon it has the "extra" stuff that the XM has and at well over double the price just ridiculous.

The only thing that puts me off a bit is that doesn't have a removable PSU filter that doesn't require removing the PSU. So I have modified mine with an external filter held on with Velcro and done away with that useless little filter they give with the case anyway - you could get golf balls through that.

Because I like mine up away from the floor I also modified the power and Hard drive lights to the front with blue LEDS (didn't like the red ones) so that I can see them without having to stand up (5'3" dripping wet LOL!!)

Nope this case is perfect ad if I ever do a build again (likely) I would get the same thing only with a window this time perhaps.

You can order the window side panel through Cooler Master store, but then you would have no side fan. That's what I've been thinking I'd do with mine and it still has the handle latch.

It's not quite so obvious unless you have both like me, but the HAF X has much more space inside it than the XM. Although I've never measured or tried it, I'm not so sure the HAF X wouldn't fit a server board. I've never found a component yet that wouldn't fit a HAF X, except the very large reservoir I bought. And it would fit the case, just not with the big Graphics card I have. Personally, I like the HAF X better, but then again, I like full tower cases over mid tower ones. More room to work on them.
