Recommend a PSU for my Rig

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So far all the PSU I've used dont work on my rig so far I used coolmax ZU and a corsair gs 600 2013 edition and both were 600 watts now when I said didnt work they didnt provide power unless I had just the mobo ram and gpu but as soon as I attach fans ssd optical drive etc no power is received I'm asking for help I've made tons of forums and I haven't received the help I needed so please someone help me I'm about to shop for a PSU tomorrow afterwork I need a recommendation that will allow me to be gaming tomorrow night. Here is my rig specs:

My Rig without PSU:

CPU
i7 2600k
RAM
Cruial Ballisx
OS
Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64bit

Motherboard
Asrock z77 Extreme 4
Optical Drive
Samsung write/read

Graphics
EVGA GeForce GTX 660
Cooling
Corsair H50 Liquid cooling
Case
Rosewill Blackhawk Mid Tower

Ps: when I tried powering my rig with everything hooked up the power led and the fan led for the two front fans came on then when off in milliseconds i don't know if that means I need more than 600 watts or I just have crappy PSU choices some tell me because I double checked everything on my connections and everything is right but my PSU

You certainly don't need more than 600 watts for that rig, that's for sure.

Coolmax is a garbage PSU brand, however Corsair's "GS" line isn't bad and should have worked just fine for you. I wonder if it's something else in your system that's having problems, such as your motherboard...

I tested the mobo this is the 3rd one it came on and everything when nothing else was like the fans were connected so it's not it it's the PSU the corsair didnt even power on or show the blue led heck the coolmax at least powered my system with out fan ssd and other case parts
