Been building my own rigs since I was 11. First one was a 386, and man, was it badass. I'll tell you, nothing quite like graduating from a Commodore 64 and Sega Genesis to a PC game.

Just built a new rig earlier this year. Can't recall the specs, I'll add them later, but here it is: http://www.imgur.com/uweUI7E.jpeg

EDIT: Whoops! Almost forgot to post specs.



Top Case Fan




Gaming SSD


My OS is on an older SSD from an older build, but it's still fine. I also have a Seagate 1 TB and a Western Digital Black 1 TB for secondary storage. Most of that is my Steam library.

u/ak74907 · 3 pointsr/buildapc

I bought this corsair......man I'm getting nervous. Hope this thing comes together =)



u/chivas604 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I got off it of Amazon. Though I was surprised that my PSU came in the color that it did, but it doesn't matter since my PSU hidden by my case.

u/rKyute · 2 pointsr/PUBATTLEGROUNDS

Never had any other problems in any other games, I get 100+ frames in Lol CSGO Overwatch WoW with no drops. Dxdiag is wrong it is 2g

Here is my Card and PSU, No I cannot borrow another PSU.



u/irishguy42 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

In regards to the PSU, I was thinking going with this, which is semi-modular. Not sure what you went with. 750 is a great size for expanding in the future. Do it.

u/madbr3991 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

This one is $70.

u/313miker · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Looking to build the "exterminator" from the builds list. It says to get Corsair CXM 550W power supply. Now in Canada the Corsair CX 750W is on sale for the same price. Would it be better to just go for the 750? Links to both below

u/Nannou101 · 2 pointsr/techsupport

The NVidia GTX 970 is a very fast card at a very reasonable price.

An Antec 620W modular or Corsair 750W modular PSU would probably do the trick.

This would keep you inside your $500 range (just barely). I only suggest the higher-range power supplies because too often problems emerge with PCs that are caused by dodgy power.

u/scswift · 2 pointsr/oculus

Your upgrade looks like it will be way cheaper than mine was.

I got the Rift on sale for $350, but my PC was like 10 years old with only a new SSD in it.

Ended up getting an i5-9600K + MSI Z390 Gaming Edge for $470, 16 GB of RAM, Cooler Master 212 EVO which turned out to be huge and a huge pain in the ass to install (I recommend watching the video on that page that I didn't notice until after I installed the thing with only it's Ikea-like instructions.), but that big fan means it's far quieter than the tiny stock fans processors usually come with. The i5-9600K does not come with a fan either, so I had no choice and this was the most popular one on NewEgg.

Also got myself an MSI Gaming X GTX 1070 used on Ebay for $270. And because it only has one HDMI port, I decided to use that for the RIFT because it was less risky, and got a Displayport to HDMI cable which supports audio for my monitor which has the speakers built in and does not have a Displayport connector. Only afterward while taking my PC apart however did I realize I had the HMDI cable plugged into my old card with a DVI adapter, and the Gaming X has a DVI port as well, so I could have saved the money on the cable. :(

Also at the last minute I had to run out and grab a Corsair 750W power supply because my perfectly good Coolermaster 750W power supply did not have an 8 pin connector for my CPU. Of course, when I got it home it did not have the 4 pin connector and the motherboard has both a 4 pin and 8 pin and I assumed both would be needed, but I gave it a shot and just having the 8 pin was fine. But now I wonder if just having the 4 pin would also have been fine. The damn manual doesn't have a thing to say about it being okay to just use one of them, but being an electrical engineer I have to assume they're both tied to the same rail on the board, so I'm just gaining a bit more copper to lower the voltage drop if I were to connect a 4 pin as well, and the system seems perfectly stable, so perhaps they included the second connector to help with overclocking. I dunno.

Anyway, final tally including the Rift without a third sensor was $1,339.

And if you're wondering why I didn't go with AMD, well, I could have but when I priced it out, I wasn't actually going to save that much. And the Intel seemed like it would perform better with both games and applications and would just be less likely to have any issues like the Vive and its wireless solution do with AMD processors.

Part of the reason the AMD was not much cheaper is the same MSI motherboard would have been more expensive as an AMD variant and while the AMD included a cooler, the Cooler Master one was only $30 and had a bigger fan which meant it would likely be quieter. Though the AMD does run at a lower wattage, so it could be a toss up. All I know is my old PC sounded like a jet engine when I started doing any heavy lifting with 3D graphics, and it was still kinda noisy otherwise, but now its super quiet and even when running 3D apps that MSI card which I specifically chose because it's one of the quietest, was indeed really quiet.

Speaking of the 1070, my god that is a monster of a card! I barely fit it in my case. And my case is a full size tower. But it has extra 3.5" bays down the bottom where I have my hard drives installed and I had to move them down some more to get it to fit and it only barely slid in behind the metal frame of the drive bay.

Only other thing to mention is while I had no problem fitting my two ram sticks on the motherboard, that Cooler Master cooler's fan would probably collide with one of the ram sticks if I were to install four in there. I think the fan can slide up and down on the cooler though, so perhaps as long as you have low profile ram, you could slide it up a smidge or two to make it fit. Something to consider if you think you may eventually want 32 or 64GB of ram.

u/subcake · 2 pointsr/DataHoarder

to be honest, it might be a little more expensive, but worthwhile to get a PSU that has more SATA connectors.

I got mine on a sale, but its still a reasonable price on amazon right now Corsair 750W PSU, and this one comes standard with 8 sata connectors, on top of being modular, you can add more sata cables in the future if need be

u/straightupd · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Thank you for responding everyone. I think the conclusion is a new power supply instead of risking it.
This is what I was planning on getting. Thoughts?

u/twitchy_taco · 1 pointr/buildapc

My husband lost the power cord to my brother's PC's PSU that I build him a few years ago. He moved across state lines and my husband forgot to put it in the box. Pretty sure our roommate is using it on his coffee maker.

What should I look for in a replacement power cord? the PSU was this one.

u/celestial_turtle · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace


This is the PSU I have now.... I don't know if I trust it I cheaped out when I first bought it. To be safe I got this new http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ALK3KEM?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00

750 W Corsair PSU for a good price. Worst case scenario if I didn't need it I have a better power supply, and enough spare wattage to upgrade comfortably in the future.

u/docb30tn · 1 pointr/buildapc

Ok. The one 24 pin one is attached so I won't need that one. Isn't there some company or whatever that sells replacements like that? I know the make/model of my PSU.

u/draginator · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

Yeah, I just got this corsair 750w one, but that was only because I upgraded to a 1080ti.

u/1stGenRex · 1 pointr/dogemining

Here's the version I'm using (just set it up a few minutes ago)

Here's the PSU I'm using

And I replaced the stock fan with this one Although it's not exactly an easy swap because the plugs are different, I just connected the fan directly to the PSU. Once I clean everything up in the next day or so, I'll post pics.

I planned on using the Zenminer Controller, but I still haven't gotten it yet.

u/DrDankmaymays · 1 pointr/techsupport

Second one

This is good too 750w if you wanna spend less

u/Ludus22 · 1 pointr/techsupport

That's a common occurrence. It was fighting, but, 400watts probably couldn't power that computer for a long time.:p i had a 430 watt power supply when i was younger in a PC with a GTX 660. Fried my motherboard, thank GOD the 660 was okay. If you want to future proof your power supply, honestly, a 750 watt is the way to go.

It's a bit more money, about 30 bucks more. For your case, i'd go modular. Here's a perfect example:

u/gamegod7 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

you need more power

look at this one its pretty good i think

EDIT: might be a bit overkill actually

try something like an evga 600b? its what I have

u/BadAtMakingIDs · 1 pointr/OkCupid

I'd say grab this. Return the one you bought to Best Buy when this shows up later this week (yay Prime shipping). You should drop down to their 650, but you only say $7 so I'd stick with the 750.

u/AceSu · 1 pointr/Monitors

Most people wouldn't go for 1TB of SSD, hence sdd is really expensive. You probably only need 250 GB for your windows files and a few games and programs, use HDD to store your other files :/ you will get more for your money.

Power supply need to be able to produce enough juice for your system. But anything above 600 should be fine. I did recommend this one.


EDIT : The other parts looks alright to me. Also use https://pcpartpicker.com/ which allow you to incert your parts and stuff, it also check for compatibility and allow you to copy and paste the build on subreddit like /r/buildapc easier.

u/G0rbash · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

That's just how it's labeled on Amazon [here](Corsair CX Series 750 Watt 80 Plus Bronze Certified Modular Power Supply (CP-9020061-NA) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ALK3KEM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_kSgOAbRBHFGN2). Everywhere else labeled it CX-M.

u/corruptsoul98 · 1 pointr/buildapc

With Alien Isolation, the clock speed was still shooting around 500 and 600 and only going up to 976 sparingly.

That is indeed my card! I am on the 14.11.2 Beta drivers after downgrading from 14.12 due to suffering from random BSODs. I used DDU to uninstall those old drivers and install these older ones.

I have this power supply

And after running the Unigine benchmark, this is my result. The GPU stayed at 976Mhz and also never dropped below 70% usage. So there's finally an improvement.

And here's the MSI graph of Unigine That FPS spike at the end is when I alt tabbed to pause the MSI monitor.

u/_Kaj · 1 pointr/techsupport

Appreciate all of the help. truly, thank you. Just ordered a new PSU, and 16 GB of ram (from amazon, all in one pack.) I'm sure that will resolve all my issues!



p.s I'm so happy I dont have to put more thermal paste on my cpu hehe


pp.s is this a good wattage for the 1070 + 4 fans?

u/SupaStaVince · 1 pointr/buildapc

My PSU is killing my system and I need a new one 650w or higher. Is this a good one? If not, what would you guys recommend?


u/akhilsukh01 · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

Your psu price is actually more expensive than a brand new one on amazon

u/__pathfinder__ · 1 pointr/ObeliskHQ

I just got a SC1 Batch 2, which has 1 hashing board requiring 3 6-pin PCIe connectors.

The board pulls 500W, so I started using this PSU:

Rated to 750W, quiet as a mouse with modular cables and decent efficiency. Works like a charm.

u/fathobo · 1 pointr/dayz

I built you computer that I think will last you quite sometime. It's a bit over your budget but if you can get some more money it will be worth it in the long run.



Power supply (don't know what your wattage is, but this is a safe choice)






Total: $430 - A lot of these products are on sale right now so it could be more or less come buying the parts.

Like I said this is a build on the higher price point but it will work well for you for another 7-10 years.

u/Type_9 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Of course! Here's one on Amazon so you know what to look for: Corsair CX Series 750 Watt 80 Plus Bronze Certified Modular Power Supply (CP-9020061-NA) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ALK3KEM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_h4sYCbQGN9ZN0

u/zaphodi · 1 pointr/techsupport

none of those are particularly high temperatures? the psu does not affect those temps in any way.


if you need some sort of recomendation:

personally partial to corsair series of psus, seem to be high quality and priced ok.

for example:


u/Evinreud · 1 pointr/buildapc


Is this a good PSU? Need SLI 970s with an i5 2500k

u/Androiduser148 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Is this one better? It is rated highly on this site.

u/Harlodchiang · 1 pointr/buildapc

The Corsair CXM is around the same price and semi modular, and the Corsair RMx is $35USD more and is fully modular.

I'd go with the modular for easier cable management in your (planned, Reddit history) H200.

u/VikzGravity · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

This is the one. I may be dumb, but my ram is 32gb of the rgb vengeance.

u/jlipnice · 1 pointr/buildapc

Thank you very much for the suggestion! Went with the Corsair, based upon the suggestion. Much appreciated!


u/Jamolas · 1 pointr/buildapc

I would aim for a 600W, 750W if you ever want to crossfire.
I'm UK based, so pricing is VERY different over here. I currently have a corsair CX750 and have had no problems with it at all. I'm running a 4670K and SLI GTX 760s.

u/TheIrishDin · 1 pointr/techsupport

Well I mean, this seemed to fit my criteria pretty well Corsair CX Series 750 Watt ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Bronze ATX12V/EPS12V 744 Power Supply CX750M https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ALK3KEM/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_1mIdub0KKRJST

u/phancdp · 1 pointr/buildapc



I see 2 corsair 750's for $80 and $70 respectively. What's the difference? I have to admit they are a nice price considering I paid $55 for the Bronze 600B 600 W by EVGA, but do you feel getting it would be overkill for my PC. good deal doesn't matter to me if it's overkill for my pc know what I mean?

u/iHardscopedJFK · 1 pointr/buildapc

It's definitely not bad at all. So many power supplies out there are made by Channel Well Technology. They make certain PSUs for everyone ranging from Antec to Zalman. This includes this Corsair series. The price for the power is a great deal. An 80+ Bronze is more than fine. Sure you can go for an 80+ Gold but I have yet to notice an extreme difference at high loads. It's also an extremely quiet PSU. All in all it's up to you. Also, I noticed it's cheaper on Amazon and still free shipping and no waiting for rebate.

u/Berzerkerwar · 1 pointr/buildapc

They're good parts, but you could exchange them for something else. I would get [This Corsair PSU] (http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Modular-Bronze-ATX12V-EPS12V/dp/B00ALK3KEM/ref=lp_1161760_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1408080018&sr=1-1) which is great for the price and reliable. The [Noctura Silent CPU Cooler] (http://www.amazon.com/Noctua-Silent-Cooling-NH-U9B-SE2/dp/B0065SFEE8/ref=sr_1_9?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1408080045&sr=1-9&keywords=noctua) is very good but it is pricier than the 212, but having the 212 I can tell you that it can really get loud when the RPM's get going. Case is up to you, it's the part you will always be looking at, so get one that you will love for years to come.

u/SharkSpider · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

I have a Corsair CX750M for sale. It's only semi-modular in that the 24-pin ATX and 8-pin CPU cables are built in, though. Asking 55 plus shipping, I can give a shipped price if you PM me a zip code.

u/Sumguy121 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I was considering B150 Motherboard @ $119.18. What do you think about this Mobo? Better suited? I had picked the Z170 chipset initially to keep things open in case I decide to upgrade in a 2 years or so...

As for PSU, the cheapest I could find with the gray sticker is $145 @ 700W. More than twice the price... Do you think it is worth it... I figured I could loose a bit on power savings to save on the upfront cost.

u/chewymammoth · 1 pointr/buildapc

The card was actually a gift and it would be pretty difficult to get it returned so I'm probably just gonna roll with the new PSU. Do you think I'd be ok with the modular version of this one? As far as I can tell it'd be ok but just looking for 3rd party confirmation heh.

u/perroviolador · -2 pointsr/buildapc

I would trade that PSU for something like this www.amazon.com/Corsair-Series-Modular-Bronze-ATX12V/dp/B00ALK3KEM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1417941062&sr=8-2&keywords=corsair+m+psu
