i have a 550w Chiefmax power supply, (im very happy with it too :) ) and i recently found out that my CPU Fan, the valcano 7+ Sux ass.so i had to take it off. now i have to wait ti'll my water cooling system get here, to be able to turn it back on. Anyway, ever sence that happen i've been adding quite a few thing to my computer:

x1 Floppy Drive
x1 CD-RW drive
x1 DVD-RW drive
x2 Hard drvies
And later my WCing system will count as one CD drive b/c it takes a HDD plugin.

so right now i have

x5 hard drives
x3 cd/dvd rom drives
x1 floppy
my gfx card (x1 Hdd plug)
and soon my WCing will need x1 Hdd plugin
:lol: and my mobo :)

How do i know if i need more power? and how much power will i need?
like a 650w?

Why don't you calculate your exact power needs by adding all of your components' power consumption ratings together?

HDD plug is called a molex plug. they have a PSU calculator. you may want to go to that site. it is linked on the forum.
