Please buy a Corsair/Seasonic or similar quality PSU

My Asus BD drive was like $35 in December..
As per your advice, I've gone for a Corsair HX-850...for $50 more :/.

If you can link me to a place where I can get a cheap BDD, I'll be more than happy to get it.

What are the extra fans for? If you have a fan controller, just get a bunch of Yate Loons...

Why would I use Yate Loons over say CoolerMasters, or any other brands?

Do you HAVE to run wireless on this thing? Unless you have a really poor internet connection, running an actual cable to your router will always be faster and have a higher reliability. JM2C.
Yeah I do. I'm in another room which is away from the router and unless I want to run cables across the hallway, I'm going for wireless. Maybe one day I'll get it hardwired.
