Power Supply for this build?


I'm looking for a modular power supply for this build within £70 (buying from the UK). I would prefer if it's sold by Amazon as I need this for Monday (building it with a bunch of friends and have Amazon prime)

The current PSU says 2-3 weeks to dispatch. Here is the build:
If you have any other suggestions for the build please let me know, but everything has been bought other than SSD and PSU.

unfortunately modularity makes thing expensive

bequiet (not modular)

Fractal (semi modular)

Corsair (semi modular)

that EVGA psu is your best bet, a shame the shipping is so slow

Don't buy a low profile cooler for a full tower. Even Noctuas have limits. The Hyper 212 is a better option here and probably cheaper.
Also don't buy a founders 1060 for a full size case. It makes no sense to deal with a blower style cooler when you don't have to.

The Arctic Freezer Xtreme is a nice cooler.

I agree. I just wanted to stay in the same price range. Noctuas NH-L9i and the Hyper 212 are listed at about £30,-. The U12S is 50,-.

Thanks for all the responses.

I just wanted to say that sadly I have bought all the parts other than the SSD, I already mentioned this in my original post.

I ended up going for the Seasonic G450 450W 80+ Gold Semi Modular PSU.

For the cooler I went for it because of the combination of price, brand and reviews. As for the GTX 1060 Founder's Edition it's hard to find any other GTX 1060's in stock. The only other ones are the Zotac mini 1060's for £240, which are not even sold by Amazon therefore I cannot buy via Amazon prime.

It's all out of stock everywhere else, and I needed the parts by Monday, so I had already placed the orders for those parts before posting.

Sorry, and thank you for the help everyone. Someone once told me Seasonic makes the best PSU's so I went with that and matching it in the Power Supply Tier List v2

Edit: Yeah I wanted to stay away from the Hyper 212 EVO, this build is actually for a friend and I had to get my dad to help me install the hyper 212 evo, worst mounting system ever as someone said.
