UPS (PSU) It may causes PC to turn off ?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi Everybody,

I just bought and installed the following components: mobo GIGABYTE for Intel LGA 1151 mAlX GA-Z170M-D3H, RSDDR4, HDMI, HD AUDIO, SATA Express, M.2, SATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.0, memo sticks Kingston HyperX FURY 1668 (4x4GB) 2133Mhz DDR4 CL14 RS Black Series - HX421C14FBK4/16 and Processador Intel Core 15-6600 Skylake, Cache 6MB, 3,3GHZ (3.9Ghz RS Max Turbo), LGA1151, Intel HD Graphics 530 BX80662156600. I also installed 2 HD, one with 250 GB for system and one with 2 TB capacity for keeping files. It has also a DVD-RW, one 120mm fan and two 80mm fan.

The problem is that this mobo has ATX 2x4 (or 8 pins) and the UPS only 4 pins. I was told that i could connect only the 4 the UPS had and that would be fine. Well, so far so bad, because the PC crash anytime i turn it on. I mean, it start to boot for 3 seconds and turn off and keep doing this in a "ethernal" loop.

This PC is used only for office and doesn't have any video card offboard, this way i used an old 500W OCZ UPS with 2 rails +12 - 18a. Would be possible that the UPS could be the source problem?

Thanks for the help.

You have to run an 8 pin power cable to the 8 pin cpu power connector on that main board.
And you should never put together a new system with a old power supply unit. thats just asking for trouble.

Edit: what exact model of OCZ psu do you have? so far every OCZ psu I have googled has a 4 pin and a 8 pin cpu power connector

This is from the manual for the board you have.

Lol, that's a pretty extreme rule you've set there. Perhaps it'd be better to say "use your best judgement when it comes to using older psu's in new builds".

I see, it must be very old as I cannot find it in my Google search.
Well my advice would be to buy a new psu as it is the cause of your issue. smile.gif

Sound as a good advice. Lol. I thought about buying this one here: Corsair CX-750W 80 Plus Bronze - CP-9020015. It's a single +12V - 62A rail, Do you think it will deliver the power i need ? The good thing is that it's not expensive. Lol

Thanks for the help

Wow. That's a serious matter. Well, this PC was used in a warehouse office for storing requisitions and excel tables and etc. and it will return doing the same job as soon as it's been upgraded. I'll take your advice into consideration. Probably, i'll buy another brand. I don't have much knowledge when concerning PSUs and my major problem besides finding something with some quality (make things work better) and safety (one product that doesn't f* things up), is to find the right amount o power, i mean, 650W? 750W?

Thanks for the help

That amount of wattage is only if you are going to be doing a SLI setup with two high end video cards
All you really need for your system even if you want to add a bigger video card is a good 550 watt PSU

If you are not going to add a bigger video card as little as a 350 watt PSU could power that system.
