    Default CM 690 - what's a good PSU?

    Hi guys

    I recently got a CM 690 case and was putting it together in the weekend. I ran into some problems when trying to connect my PSU to the CPU 12v socket on the mother board. The lead of my existing PSU wasn't long enough.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a modular PSU that has long cabling?

    I figure the Cooler Master PSUs will probably suit (eg CM Real Power Pro) but would value any recommendations.

    Cheers

    All the Silverstone PSU's have 550mm cables......are you trying to go around the MB, or straight up to the CPU?..

    PS: I have a brand new Silverstone Olympia 650w if you are interested...!

    Ideally I'd like to go around the MB and avoid cutting across.
    Thanks for the offer, will keep it in mind!

    For anyone interested I ended up with a Silverstone Strider ST75F. It works fine, though the 12v ATX 4-pin has to go over the GPU, won't fit around, and it won't fit under with the supplied cable.
