"The importance of a good PSU and its effect on reliable computer operation cannot be stressed enough. The PSU needs to maintain a constant voltage output within close tolerances whilst having sufficient current "beefiness" to cope with the computers widely changing demands as CPU load, disk drive activity etc. varies. This is no mean feat and failure to meet these requirements often results in random crashes and the danger of data corruption that brings. I am going to look at one such power supply that purports to be up to the job, the Enermax EG465P-VE PSU. This is a 431W low noise unit intended as an upgrade over the standard 250W/300W generic PSU...The cables on this thing are way too long for my liking so I'm going to shorten them. All the cables were shortened by 8" - 10". If you do this mod yourself you may want to shorten by different lengths, but remember to measure carefully before you cut the wires! After removing the PSU cover, the braiding on the ATX connector cables was trimmed back after snipping off the retaining cable tie and cutting away the excess braiding with sharp scissors."
