Y710 Cube - PSU upgrade and cable management

Whoever has a y710 can agree that the cabling is a mess.

 

I am looking to change the PSU to a modular one so i can make a bit of order in the cabling inside.

i was looking at:

- Corsair CP-9020091-uk RM650x

- EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G2. 80+ Gold 650W

 

 

Has anybody upgraded their PSU and does it fit? I am under the impression that the PSU used is a Lenovo proprietary 450W one and i dont want to buy a new one to discover it doesnt fit.


Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi.
I was able to install Enermax Revolution XT II. I had problems with modular wiring but finally everything fits.
I had to remove plastic frame for one of the 3.5-inch hdd drives.

After prolonged use, I think a better solution would be a smaller power supply SFX format because standard ATX power supplies with a fan at the top have too low air flow. The side panel covers the fan.

I know that it's been a long time but maybe it will help someone. It is reasonable to buy a strong power supply with the gold standard. The 550W PSU turned out to be too weak for the new graphics card. Currently, I would buy a 750W SFX power supply.
