  1. It starts fine. Sometimes it hangs on bios startup but maybe once out of 5 start ups. And only started having these problems with this psu. The 980ti is fine.
  2. And these are problems I've only noticed using a lower wattage psu. The last 2 years I've been using my setup with a 750w psu I've never had any problems.
  3. Yeah it's going back for sure. Under normal conditions it's fine. Once I start a raid in escape from Tarkov (best example) as soon as the raid starts, PC shuts off. While in the menus or character screen, it's ok. World of Tanks/Warships also ok.
  4. I also found out what my problem is with this PSU. My GTX 980ti is too power hungry. Listed on Palit my 980ti pulls alone 280W and they recommend at least a 600w. my 4690k OC'd to 4.2 pulls 180W. upon install I had a lot of problems with the 550. I did a cmos clear and that helped the contant hanging and no start up issues. I still have moments where it will freeze at the loading screen (Where you can enter Bios) and now I put my GTX 970 gaming back in since they are rated at 148w. I will try a test to see if it crashes again. I still do not think 550w is ok for my setup.
  5. I'm having problems with the Xilence 550w that I never had with my Sharkoon Silentstorm Icewind edition. I also swapped it out for another PSU with higher wattage and no problem. I just think either I got a bad one or the 550w is not enough (I'm also overclocking) So i will return the xilence and buy the Corsair. they even have a 10 year warranty, the Xilence does not and the seller even states only 1 year. It's also obvious that the Corsair is way better. I'd rather have too high Wattage and than dance on the limit. Plus from my Sharkoon that I sent back I'll get 83€ back (I bought it used on ebay for 40€ but the seller gave me his bill of sale and said I am allowed to return it) and I will use that to buy the corsair.
  6. How can I tell if a Corsair RMx series is the 2015 or 2018? I am specifically looking at a Corsair RM750x 80 Plus Gold on Amazon.de for about 114€ Link to PSU on Amazon.de
  7. Ok. I only posted it here since I was recommended this PSU in here. I will post it there then.
  8. Hello again I have another question about my Xperience perf X 550 watt PSU. For 2 days now whenever I'm playing a game the computer will randomly shut off completely and restart. Even on my failing 750w sharkoon it never did that. I was recommended 550 Watts for my setup is that maybe still too low? I am running an I5 4690k overclocked to 4.2ghz, Asrock H87 Performance Fatal1ty, 16gb ddr3 1600, GTX 980ti, 3 HDDs, 1 ssd, 3 case fans and a CM 212 hyper led. Half the usb ports are used.
  9. So, I bought the Xilence perf-x 550 you recommended, brand new. My pc booted once fully into windows and I had to change a few settings so I rebooted. (Also CPU was not running at the normal 3.9ghz, instead just 3.7 but I figured it would be fine.) And now my pc is trying to start but instead keeps restarting over and over. I dont even see the motherboards boot screen. Just on them off about 10 times now. When I manually shut it down and wait about 15 seconds and then turn it on, It boots up fine.
  10. the BQ was just meant to be a placeholder till I got a better one. It's also not in my PC because of a few missing cables.
  11. yeah true. I keep forgetting most companies for PSUs and cooling are German.
  12. Wow, Thanks! That is good to know. I just found one new for 50€ Thanks again for your help.
  13. I bought a BQ! Dark Power Pro 8 new at a great deal (Display Model) but it was missing a few of the cables (PSI Express power and so) (I didn't know until i got it in the mail) and the p10 an p11 model cables won't fit so I'm out there on 45€
  14. Right now I am running a n i5 4690k OCd at 4.2 16gb ddr3 gtx 980ti (Palit super jetstream) 3 HDDs (500, 1000, 2000gb) 1 SSD 256gb 5 120mm fans, 2 of them are on the CPU a small strip of 5v leds running off a PCI usb card RGB headphones usb powered usb powered speakers (Logitech Z120) 1080p Webcam (C920 Pro) 3 Monitors (2x 1080p, 1x 1366 x 768) Standard gaming mouse and keyboard with some LEDs and a Gaming mousepad (Single color led) on a non Powered USB Hub Bluetooth 5.0 dongle (USB 3.0) That is everything connected to my PC the plan is that I will upgrade to an i7 7700k with the gtx 980ti and 32gb of ram a 2TB M.2 drive and a 2 TB SSD plus my 2 HHDs (1TB and 2TB) with maybe a BQ Dark rock Pro 3 or an AIO. I used multiple PSU calculators online and MY current setup was recommended a 750w and the future build an 850w
  15. I don't really have the budget for a brand new one for my OCd PC. I just need to last long enough till I get my current one replaced. I have one on warranty but I need something quick so I can swap it and send mine in. I am saving up for a brand new Corsair 850w for my new build. PCUs in Germany are a lot more expensive than the US or so.
