Test Rig:

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
Asus P5K64 WS
Kingston HyperX PC3-13000 2 gig kit
2 x Apollo Radeon HD 3850 in Crossfire
Thermaltake M9 mid tower

I had a tough time deciding whether to put the Real Power Pro in my full tower rig to show that the cables are long enough, or my mid tower rig to show that the PSU will easily fit in a mid tower. I went for the latter.

My two HD 3850s are a poor excuse for the extreme SLI rig that the Real Power Pro is designed to power. Actually, the motherboard will support four cards, but I only have a pair. My intentions are to show that if my cards won't budge the voltage, that two or three big cards should be well powered.

Place the power supply in the case. Determine which cables you will need and which ones you will hide. Connect the necessary power connectors, and hide the remaining wires. Simple as that.
