    Cpu is stuck at minimum power

    Have you checked the temps? The cpu will bottleneck itself if its overheating, this includes lowering its voltage

    Computer decides to shutdown/restart out of a sudden

    Power supplies are a tricky thing, they are usually the first thing to die in a system and for some reason is one of the components that OEMs decided to cheap out on. Probably because when it blows, they can sell you a new system.

    Computer decides to shutdown/restart out of a sudden

    It said the theoretical max would be 387, thats assuming you were hitting it with 100% for a LONG time. The life of a prebuilt power supply isnt great. I would say move over to the Antec power supply. But I would also suggest thinking of moving to something like a 430 or even better a 500W psu. just so he has the ability to upgrade in the future without worrying about overcurrent protection

    So I would suggest checking what dimentions the PSU is, and purchasing either a higher wattage PSU or move to another case and getting a higher wattage psu.

    According to the Seasonic website, the pc will be taking in an average of 337W and a average max load of 387W, which is more than that PSU can supply, so its an overcurrent protection issue

    How many drives?
  7. There could be an NDA so we wont know till that lifts. For testing, they will probably get them a couple days to a week prior, but untill the NDA drops, we wont know anything

    Do you have the exact specs, because it would be worth using an online calculator. With a power supply that small it's very likely you are using too much wattage. Prebuilds usually cheap out on parts and a psu from that long ago could definitely be the issue

    Audio Technica AT2020 is what I use, itsnt too expensive plus with a decent mixer, it sounds great

    Using laptop charger as power supply

    Note before I say this: As an engineer myself, I wouldn't suggest this, playing with sensitive electronics ESPECIALLY ones that involve mains power should not be messed around with early on. A lot can go wrong, and depending on how much it goes wrong, can be fatal. Do this at your own risk. Please provide the model number of the charger so we know what we are dealing with.
  11. I would suggest getting a WD Red drive, they are a little bit more than a standard blue drive but they are designed for nas use.

    How do i get it to light up?

    http://www.deepcool.com/product/dcoolingaccessory/2016-03/12_4803.shtml You will need this

    Why can't I find my gpu in device manager?

    You could flash the 550ti bios, that might work
  14. Its a shot in the dark honestly when it comes to server chips
  15. It seems to be a normal lga 1155 chip but i would suggest getting a motherboard with ECC support as you never know if ecc will work on a standard board. The rest should be fine.
