Sure this has been asked and answered already, but I'm in a rush and didn't see a way to search the thread...
Me and a friend are building new rigs...we each selected the 830 and foolishly ordered the PCPC 1kW without considering its massive size. I have not yet received my components but my friend has and he managed to install the 1kW by effectively making the blow hole incapable of accepting the intended 120mm fan (he bent the aluminum tab for the fan frame allowing him to slide the 1kW all the way in). As I was really looking forward to using the blow hole with a 120mm fan, I am not quick to "force" the 1kW into the enclosure. therefore i ordered the 510...but am now having second thoughts since i will be running dual ati x1900 and initially 2 500gb sataii drives with more to follow (after all, that is why i chose the stacker, to stack it full of hard drives).
so, anyone else here force the 1kW and care to provide any comments, justifications, reasoning, etc.? even if you haven't used the 1kW, or some other larger psu, i would be interested in hearing everyone's thoughts/opinions.
oh, what about the crossflow fan, i ordered it...anyone else install one?
