Buying a new pay for my new gaming rig

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys,

I'm new here, hope one of you could help.

Recently built a new gaming rig, most of the hardware is brand new, but some components are older, such as the PSU.

Lately I have been experiencing some power malfunctions with the fans, like when the pc is under load, 1 or 2 of the case fan suddenly turn off...

This led me to have toasty temps of around 50c inside the case and CPU temp in the high 90's under Load.

 

Here are the specs-

 

Mobo- Gigabyte z270x aorus gaming 7

 

Cpu- Intel i7-7700 not K (stock cooler, planning on upgrading to a aio water cooler)

 

Gpu- Gtx 1070 founders edition

 

Storage-1tb hdd 7200 rpm

Corsair mp500 480gb nvme m.2

 

Memory- 1 stick of ddr4 16gb kingston 

 

Case- Corsair spec alpha with 4 case fans

 

Psu- huntkey hk-700 650w 

 

Not planning  (nor can) on OCing anytime, pc is also connected to a RGB 5050 led strip.

 

Lives in Israel(can find almost every kind of top-tier hardware here), budget of 300$.

 

Thanks!

Eek, Huntkey. Never heard of them, but from reviews (several blown up), they look pretty dodgy. I suggest a corsair, evga, seasonic, thermaltake, antec, or coolermaster psu. 650W is also a bit more than you need, 550W would be fine.

the one review of it, or well one blurb on thw is that its shit and you should replace it 


Monitor Poll |

i7 3770k @ 1.28v 4.4GHz | 4x8GB CAS9 1600MHz | GTX 760 | ASUS P8Z77-V LE | 6TB WD Gold (128MB Cache, 2017)

Samsung 850 EVO 240 GB 

 

 

Legacy:

 

Spoiler

pc -> preamp -> splitter -> my 'crossover' (equalizer set to +12db on 35-200hz, twice since its a stereo one and im using it as mono), my amp

'crossover' -> amp (cheapo ebay board) -> subwoofer

Equalizer: Pioneer SG-60

eBay amp: Generic 100w with terrible traits 

 

PC -> 3.5mm to RCA -> L = Speaker Set3, R = Pre Amp -> Amp -> Speaker Set1/2

Speaker Set3 = Subwoofer (Altec Lansing VS4121 subwoofer, the amp is using the built in amp with that sub)

Speaker Set1 = 'Tweeters' (2x Panasonic SB-FS900 Surround Speakers)

Speaker Set2 = 'Mid Ranged' (Center speaker from Panasonic SB-FS900, Generic 'JS Hi-Fi Speakers'

Total: 1 subwoofer, 2 midranged, 2 tweeters

Pre Amp: Onkyo P-308

Amp: Onkyo M-508

Speaker Set2 is set to -5db using my Amp, quieter because I don't like my mids to be as loud as my highs/lows

 no more 'no buzz', it's hearable with the subwoofer. 

 

 

 

 

138 is a good number.

You expected a easter egg? No.

Depend, not all thermaltake and antec and corsair and evga are good

One, don't put an AIO on a locked i7. Get a Cryorig M9i instead.

 

Two, your PSU is bad, replace it. Check the PSU tier list in my signature and get something at least tier 3.

Well, when I say EVGA and Antec, I don't mean every single one is good. However, they have better products on average than some dodgy chinese company and I assume that someone with an i7 7700 and a GTX 1070 isn't going to buy the cheapest PSU they can find. I trust in Jankrap's ability to at least read reviews for PSUs before he buys them.
