    Dont think 750 is enough for a gaming pc.Many of the z87 mothervoards eat up a lot of Ampers- up to 350w + 350w for the GPU + 100w processor + Ram + Hdd's and youre out of power.
    I got the 1300w G2 ,why not ! the price difference is not so big 30-50 euros and it will be silent .
    Flat cables ? maybe shorter i had to compress them in front of a 140mm fan,thinking about cutting them short later,when ill have time,dont have the will to solder 50 wires at Once.

    750W not enough? You can run a 780TI on a 500W system quite comfortably, 750W will give plenty of room for overclocking. I would only go above 750W for multiple GPUs now (I used to have a dual GPU in my system before getting the GTX680).

    Agreed, most people i know run overclockered sytems of 650w psu's. Only real reason to go beyond this is if you have an awful lot of power hungry parts or dual gfx cards.

    Put a watt meter on my PC an ran 3d mark firestrike, peak consumption was 540 watts.

    Components:
    4770k @4.6 ghz
    Asus z87 pro mobo
    7970 GHz edition in crossfire X2
    1 ssd & 1 HDD
    6 case fans on a 20 watt controller.
    Corsair tx 850 power supply

    This shows that anything over 650 watts is unnessisary.

    This shows that anything over 650 watts is unnecessary.
    Completely agree especially as PSUs are more efficient above 20% load. Buying an overkill PSU actually lowers the efficiency of the rig. Much better to spend extra money on a 80 PLUS Platinum than a higher watt PSU.

    Flat cables would have been preferable
    If you're going to comment on the cables, wouldn't make sense to show them in one of the photographs?

    Whilst I agree that MOST people don't need anything greater than 650 watts these days, it's flat wrong to suggest that higher capacity PSUs are unnecessary.

    Your GPU setup is hardly the zenith of graphics performance, especially considering the arrival of 4K screens and the ever increasing demands of modern graphics engines.

    650w or 850w isn't going to make a difference with a power draw of 500w anyway. This PSU will still have around 90% efficiency. So yes it would be better to go with 850w for future upgrades

    Well that assumes a couple things. One that they will upgrade, two that the cost of this PSU vs a smaller one now is marginal and that the margin is such that at the point of future upgrade the cost of a new PSU would be prohibitive. The thing is saying buy it to be future proof is only worth it if you are ever going to buy a second gfx card. And you will do so sooner rather than later as after all even the best of them lose efficiency in time.

    The new R-7 - R9 GPU series use half the power and my Z87 motherboard with haswell and the new haswell series use also less power as previous CPU's

    I hate flat cables, much rather have nice flexible braided ones. The flat cables with my Corsair HX850 are horrible to route tidily. My Sli 680 i5 750 clocked at 4Ghz runs quite happily on my 850 watt supply, newer hardware will easily run off a 750 watt supply.

    Looks a good model, if I was in the market for a new one I would consider this.

    As with others my 750w PSU runs my heavily clocked machine with 4 optical drives and 3 hard drives.
