    a stable 350-400W is enough. the power doesnt really matter because if the 520W psu's voltages are below what it should be, its not gonna power up anything.

    I only have 6 molex connectors, I had to purchase a spliter so that I would enough leads to plug everything in.How much does placement of the molex on the chain effect the power going to each device?I have all my fans chained together at the end of one of the strainds.
