Hey guys! New member, First gaming rig!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys, just joined.

Building my first dedicated gaming rig this weekend (previously just light upgrades to pre-assembled systems). I'll either be posting in a blaze of glory or just in a blaze this Saturday.

Got all my parts laid out and ready to rock!

Intel i5 4690k, 8Gb 2400Mhz CAS11 Memory, ASUS R9 290 Direct CUII OC, MSI Gaming 5 Mobo, Corsair CX750 PSU, Corsair H80i water loop and Corsair 230T Orange Case, remote controlled LED strips I also got a Oculus Rift DK1!

I'll probably post here with more questions than answers, thanks in advance!!

Welcome. Looks like a pretty good setup.
Be sure to ask if you have any questions about putting it all together.

Dang looks like it will be a great system! I'm a little jealous having a budget build... Hope all goes well thumb.gif

Well the inevitable has happened I cheaped out and bought a factory refurbished corsair CX 750. The system was running fine all Saturday, come Sunday it won't turn on. I reset the PSU then I get a flicker from the motherboard leds and a couple fans and anything else plugged into the power then it cuts out.

Sometimes it fully boots and then without warning and without any intense activity (gpu and cpu temps around 30-40°c) it cuts out, not even shutdown, just complete powerloss.

I'm 90% sure its the PSU, everything is seated properly the mobo has good clearance and all connectors are securely in place but I'm gonna breadboard tonight to be sure.

Build sounds solid, welcome to the forums Id advise if investing in a little bit better AIO CPU cooler or at least buying a better fan for the H80 just my thought though it will run great even with a H80.
