    I amm getting this power supply: http://www.directron.com/eg351pve.html . Now my question is: Does it have enough power connectors for all the stuff im getting. Here's a list:

    CD-ROM Drive
    CD-RW Drive
    Floppy Drive
    Hard Drive
    Volcano 7+
    Last but not at all least: 5 Case fans

    Now will have have enough power connectors for this much stuff? If not how could I solve this problem? Thanks,

    You wont have a problem with power from that PSU. I use the 431W WhisperQuiet model.

    You will have 8 power connectors.. that should be 3 separate strands.. The first two strands should have 2 standard molex and one floppy connector per strand. The third strand should have 4 standard molex connectors. More than you should need! Also consider buying some Molex y-splitters from Directron.com if you think you wont have enough connectors.

    It has 8 of the larger plugs, so you'll be using them all.

    I use a 300w AOpen PSU in my No.2 PC with all that and it's fine. ;)

    That is plenty for that setup. I have a 350W antec powering more than that and about 9 case fans and its more than enough

    Ok thanks guys. I forgot to mention that the TT-900 Hard drive cooler has one of those pass through connectors.

    The TT-900 isnt really a harddrive cooler, more a system cooler, i used to have one. A note of warning, mine fried themselves after 4 months of continuos use, pretty dodgy, i found that it was useless anyway, since it exhausts air from the front end of the case which is stupid since all the heat is generated from the peripherals at the back.

    Hmmmm, Thanks. I may have to rethink my HDD cooler.

    As a HDD cooler, i use a Justcooler tornado, its just an 80x10 fan that clips onto the bottom of the harddrive, and it works very well. There are many different variations of this available, and they are much more effective than the 3x40MM fans that mount in the 5.25" bay, since 40mm fans only move about 5CFM each, but this 80mm moves about 25.
