Not enough power?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I had built a rig lately with a 430W PSU

However today it died and I am not sure of the problem. The computer would not start at all. No light indicating that its on or anything. So my question is this, with the parts below and the aforementioned PSU, am I lacking power?

MOBO-gigabyte micro atx
GPU - gtx460
CPU - i5 lynnfield
RAM-4gb
HDD-500gb 7200rpm
DVD drive

Not enough power is correct.

The 460 has a minimum recommended power requirement of 450 watts, which you're not providing.

Completely incorrect. It's not an absolute recommendation, and a GTX460 could run on a quality 350W PSU, if you don't overclock anything.

There are many things that could be wrong. Have you connected the power switch to the motherboard, did you use standoffs, is everything connected correctly? It could also be a dead motherboard or a dead PSU.

It's not lack of power.

OP: Your Galaxy is a Super OC version with a 810MHz core. As with most GTX460s, it needs two 6-pin PCIe connectors. However, your Antec EA-430D Green has only one native 6-pin PCIe connector.
So, how are you connecting to the 2nd PCIe connector in your card? With the 4-pin Molex to 6-pin PCIe adapter cable that came with the card?

And, do you mean your system has been working fine but just 'dies' today? Or, you build it and it never gets 'alive'?
