5600XT on a 500W PSU

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi All,

I bought a 5600 XT as an upgrade for my 4yo+ PC without thinking about it too much. (which wasn't so smart)

I have an ASUS h97m plus mobo + haswell i7 4790, running on a 500W PSU.

after installing the GPU, the PC does not post. After removing it, there's no problem.

 

I assume this is due to an under powered PSU. is there any way i can verify this is the case before buying a new PSU?

 

if the PSU is indeed to blame, would 650W be sufficient?

 

Thanks for any help!

The whole system consumes less than 350 watts

 

What is the specific model of the PSU?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

That sounds wrong - the 5600 XT runs fine on decent 400W units. Are you sure the card is okay? Did you install it correctly? Did you remove old drivers with DDU before installing it?

thanks for the help!

The PSU is a 500W enermax enp500ast

I think I put the GPU in correctly. It was firmly stuck in place and I connected the 8 pin power connector. I've now removed it so I can use the computer...

 

I didn't install any drivers prior to installation and there aren't any "old" drivers as I've been using the onboard card up to this point.

That's a pretty crappy power supply sooo, might not be wattage but quality rather that's causing the issue
