Temp Old PSU with i5 2500k?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I am building a new PC with an i5 2500k.
I will only have:
i5 2500k
8gb ddr3 1600
sata 500gb HDD
DVD Drive

Look here for all the specs

So I have a HEC-300AR-T. I know it is VERY old and very little power. I am going to be buying a Rosewill HIVE 750w soon. I am just wondering if I could use this older power supply to install Windows 7 and such on the new computer. I wont be having a GPU in there as I am using the intel HD 3000 built in. I will take out the DVD Drive as soon as I am done installing windows 7. I am pretty sure it wouldn't work that well, but I thought maybe there is a chance? No I don't want to risk my setup.

Underclock and undervolt the CPU and you could run that system on a 300w for a little while. How long do you plan to run it for?

Best bet would be to just wait for a new PSU.

I only plan to use it for about 1 week max. I just want to install windows 7 to have everything done once the new PSU comes in. I am impatient.
