    Upgrade fail, what to do

    As above, I started changing my pc from my llano stuff to my new SB and new case etc.

    Was going ok (really don't like the V351 for working in though) until I found out the power supply doesn't fit with the cables I need....

    So, do I get a new case or new PSU?

    Case is a V351, PSU is a 750W NZXT modular thingy.

    Computer as it is now due to the issue:



    I've looked at the Design Mini, which seems to be a safe bet, has everything I need (space for 4 full size hdds, can take a longish psu (180mm), long gpu) and it looks good

    Any thoughts?

    Putting all of what you see in the picture.
    (board, gpu, 4 hdds, ssd, H70)

    And the psu is too long, doesn't fit with the modular cables in the v351

    Change the case to the define mini it, sounds like it fits your needs, rather than change the psu.

    Re: Upgrade fail, what to do

    Just ordered a Define Mini, since I just want to get this upgrade done before I go back to uni (next weekend)

    Anyone have any experience with it? Any other recommendations?

    Not got any experience with it, but the company has a good reputation as a case designer/maker and comes highly recommended on these forums. Hope you get it all sorted for your return to uni.
