650w PSU too low? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
HDD and SSD consume negligible power, I guarantee you it's not the power supply (unless there's some funky short or something going on). It is 100% definitely no question not because of insufficient wattage.

Update: the PC just crashed and shut down. Can't boot anymore. This was under STOCK settings.

A second hard drive will draw a whopping 7-10w at MOST. A SSD takes about 1w. That's absolutely NOTHING to your PSU.
The fact that its really finicky really makes me believe its a motherboard at fault. I've got that same exact board (P8P67 Pro) out for RMA right now because it got damaged SOMEHOW by me just simply swapping processors out one day for a benchmark run (between my i5 and my i3, then back again). Nothing at all is damaged, it just randomly quit working when the top PCIe slot is used.....which has nothing to do with a CPU swap.
RMA the board, I'll bet your problems go away when you get the replacement back.

Thanks. I'll RMA the board later. Just a question: what would happen if it was a CPU issue instead?

Nope. The 3gb/s SATAII ports are bugged / dead. There was a bug with the early motherboards that the 3gb SATAII ports will degrade over time so quickly. My motherboard is one of the early ones. frown.gif This is another good reason to RMA the board!

Then add things one by one, (adding the graphics card first).
But yes, you could have static'd it, it's a nice Corsair unit so 650W should be fine.. Know anyone with a 750W+ PSU though?

Is it really worth it to do that? I mean, if it was a graphic card, wouldn't the PC boot and beep (graphic card error) ? If it was a HDD, the PC would boot and get that error message "No Master Record found" or something like that.

Can you explain "crashed and shutdown"? Does it BSOD? If so, what's the BSOD code? Does it just shut straight off?

There's many MANY forms of crashing. You need to be a little more specific.

However I'm honestly leaning towards a motherboard issue. It is 110% without a doubt NOT your PSU unless you somehow killed it, which you shouldn't have been able to do.

Maybe you missed a motherboard riser, and when you went to add the new components, something shorted out. Smells like the motherboard to me...possibly a south-bridge issue.
