Cable Length - ATX Connectors

The ideal length for power supply harnesses of course depends on the intended use. Someone using a full-size tower will have very different requirements than a user with a micro ATX chassis. As such, we won't provide any commentary on whether the cable lengths are "good" or "bad" in the next four pages. Just try to select a power supply that has cable lengths that are appropriate for your case.

    That is a heck of a lot of work for this article and we appreciate it immensely! Between this article and the upcoming mid-range builders guide (I'm begging...please get it out asap) you have reaffirmed for me this is the #1 site.

    Thanks again.

    The breakdown of the cable connectors and the build quality descriptions were helpful. The power noise charts look useful as well. Reply

    Copy that, one of the best PSU roundups around. Reply

    We definitely appreciate the roundup. It addresses our needs as consumers. I wish you'd add more info about the Antec Earthwatts 430 though... it's one of the most popular PSUs on the forums here and always shows up for cheap in the hot deals section, often bundled with an Antec case. Wish you'd give us more details on its efficiency, ripple, and your overall take. I don't think you actually said anything about its performance at all. Thanks! Reply

    Isn't there a Delta made version of the 430 as well? Reply

    Yes which we didn't have. Reply

    Here's the original review from a year ago. Even though I didn't mention it in the conclusion I think you have a great comparison with the respective graphics towards the end. :)

    Thanks for this article. I am one of those who does modest OCing and no SLI, and this article was pertinent for me. Reply

    No temperatures at load? I would think that temps at 100% load for each unit shouldn't be too much. Just as a worst-case thing. Reply
