Is my PSU sufficient for my current rig ?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
The reason I am asking this is because now when I press the Power button on my cabinet, the PC takes more than 10 seconds to power on completely. After that everything runs smoothly & I havent noticed any issues while gaming either. This issue started few weeks ago only & didnt happen at all when I was using AMD. I am using Corsair 650TX which I bought in January 2011 when I was using AMD Phenom II X4 965.

Right now I am using Intel Core i5 2500k overclocked to 4.5Ghz at 1.45v (I have a bad chip frown.gif ). I bought this November last year.
I have a googled a lot & the replies indicated a bad psu or going bad soon. I have tried resetting CMOS but that didnt work. I havent tried using the onboard graphics card instead of GTX 570 since I dont have a DVI-HDMI cable. I will remove the cpu overclock tonight & see what happens. The PSU wattage calculater that I used online indicated that I use a PSU providing atleast 692W of power but the reviews of 650TX say that it provides more than 700W output on load.

Below is my config:

CPU already mentioned
Palit GTX 570 sonic platinum (uses 8 + 6 pin) -> not overclocked
2 HDDs: Seagate 500GB + WD Caviar Black 1TB
Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD4 Rev 1.3
Corsair 8GB RAM
Cooler Master V10.
No external drives being used

Yep more than enough. The 10 seconds is just the motherboard's bios initializing and just takes longer than yor old motherboard.

that psu is enough for u a 550 watts is minimum you require redface.gif so your psu is not a problem
try the following thing first :
  1. try replacing the battery which is on the motherboard
  2. try refitting your ram
  3. go the BIOS and select "PEG" as first display
hope that works redface.gif

Is it bcos of the overclock that its taking a long time to initialize or is it just the habit of almost every Z68 board (probably Gigabyte's) ? I have noticed that sometimes after powering on the board boots thrice as if the overclock is unstable but on the POST screen my overclock stays intact.

I am currently running the Rig in my sig off of a Corsair TX650 and have not seen any problems ... Bare in mind that I am running @4.8ghz and my GPU is factory overclocked from 822mhz to 950mhz core and I am pushing it to 1000mhz core ...


U should use the rig builder and add your Rig to your Sig .... it would also make things easier for the people helping u ... thumb.gif

Not sure about that. My new Rampage IV takes alot longer for the bios to initialize compared ot my Rampage III. Try updating the board's bios to the latest if you haven't already.

no way youd be using 700w, not even with two gtx 570s. your psu, barring any malfunction or damage, is plenty to support yourself. ie, 650w is more than enough

Ahaa. I just checked again my board's downloads page & this is what I got:

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3977#bios

Apparently the latest bios F6G improves (they still didnt write 'fixed') the power on issue.

I could have sworn you had a Gigabyte MoBo before opening the thread... it's a motherboard issue and not a PSU issue.

Wouldn't 2x 570's need more than a 650w ?? ...
