I own the Aurora R2 (P55). I am looking to upgrade the power supply from the 525W stock, to something that can handle 2 medium quality graphics cards. I saw that there is an 875W upgrade that's guaranteed compatible with the harness (so that I don't have to replug and rewire the case, I just plug and play), but I saw a lot of people putting the 1000W-1100W PSU's from the Area-51 series into the Aurora-R2s. To do this would I have to replace the harness as well? It looks compatible but I wasn't sure if the pins lined up the same way at the connector. Anyone know about this?
Yes the Aurora 525w and 875w use the same harness.
I think a "single card solution" works better in the Aurora. Better cooling and no CFx or SLI problems to worry about.
Thanks for the prompt replies, Installing the new PSU looks like it would be a breeze if I went with the W299G (875w), Can anyone confirm if the wire harness for the R622G (the 1100W T7500 PSU) is the same for the W299G (875w).
If I went with the "single card solution" I would be fine with the 875w by far, but If I could keep the 2 cards cool, I would like to have them (especially since they come with Crisis 3/Bioshock) hence my considering the t7500 from the Area-51 series.
