    It would have been enough, but...
    I need for the Zotac 8+8 and for the M7 8+4 pin, and the above PSU doesn't have enough(and it's the "best" the offer

    Or am I seeing something wrong?

    In a pinch you could use two PCIe cables for two 8 pins, you probably got at least 3 of them. For +4pin on MB an adapter from Molex/SATA could be used.

    Really, I can do that?
    Cool thanks Mike!

    The more you overclock and the more hardware you stick in the computer, the bigger the PSU needed.

    All components add to the total. Don't just stare blindly at one component. Never go for the minimum recommended, you most likely end up blowing up your computer eventually if your PSU is too small.

    The calculator @AddRAM provided is really good. Also his recommendation on at least a 850W PSU is very reasonable. A 1KW is not that far fetched either. It all depends on what else you put in the box.

    All power comes from same place (and regulators) on the PSU board, multiple cable outputs are just for convenience so you don't have to use cables not needed and avoid the mess.

    In the FWIW department. Just my opinion and the way I look at things.

    Cliff you are spending a lot of money for a new board. But, you are spending a lot of money for a dead chipset. It's EOL. There is no upgrade path. Why would you not spend the money on a current chipset where you could upgrade in a couple of years if you wanted to?

    No matter how good you think your CPU is, it is not as good as a 7700K, which is already a generation old. You would be hard pressed to find a 7700K that won't do 5 GHz on all cores, most will do more, depending on the cooling. The current chip is the 8700K which has 2 more cores and almost all of them will do 5 GHz on all 6 cores. Although it hasn't been confirmed, it is reasonable to expect the Z370 board to be upgradable to the next generation of CPUs. At least that is typical for Intel.

    Now, into the rumor and speculation dept. Mostly confirmed rumor is that Intel is coming out with a Z390 chipset in the near future which is a replacement for the Z370. The supposed specs on that board are it is capable of running an 8 core chip. That leads to the speculation Dept. It is speculated that Intel is coming out with an 8 core successor to the 8700K. To me, what makes that possible is that it is very unusual for Intel to release an new board without a new CPU to go along with it.

    IF Intel were to come out with an 8 core consumer CPU that will do 5 GHz like the 8700K, everyone would be selling a kidney to get one. But, that is speculation. But why, in the mostly confirmed rumor about the Z390 board, would the list in the specs that the board can run an 8 core CPU?

    I list no sources for the rumors because I don't remember. It has been mentioned by several reviewers on You Tube and a couple of articles I have read.

    Because I can afford the 261€ for the board easily, any month
    I don't own a car, so all those kind of expenses are $$$in my pocket each month(gas, insurance, upkeep and so on).
    I don't ever go out any more, more $$$ saved.

    Seriously, when I upgrade to another CPU and another board(it's the CPU I'll need to save for, I want a GOOD one), I will find me the best case, with the best air flow, I can get over here too, because the newest front I/O's will also be needed Then just put this one back together like it is now, and sell it.
