Re: NEW.. Any and all concerns about the new XPS 435/8000/9000
For those interested, I managed to successfully install a Corsair TX-650 power supply and an ATI 5770 video-card inside my Studio XPS 8000 (Core i7-860, 8GB RAM, 1TB HD).
Both units seem to be operating fine. The 5770 has been overclocked to 960 core and 1325 memory on stock cooling. It managed a 3dMark Vantage score of P10914.
The big fan on the Corsair certainly helps with internal case cooling although all the cables attached to it do take up space and are a challenge to store away inside. Installation of both the video card and the power supply were easy and straight-forward enough.
