  1. Base model of the new XPS 15 sounds like a good fit.
  2. Go for it, won't be a problem. Check the bios after to make sure all the modules are detected and running at 3200 speed. I always shut off the power supply as well to be extra precautious, don't really think it matters though.
  3. Could this be a symptom of a PSU getting too hot? The case I have it in doesn't seem to give the PSU very much breathing space, but that is only a guess.
  4. It is just a i5-9600k with no GPU. I've used a 450 Watt Corsair Unit and a 500 Watt EVGA unit. It happened with both PSU's and it also happened at my own house and my friend's home. I actually do have a lamp plugged into the same outlet and it works just fine. I really have no idea what the issue might be.
  5. Hello all, I have been troubleshooting for close to a month now on this issue and I can't seem to get it figured out, I'm ready to farm this out to people more competent. I have this new PC that was just built, everything is great about it except that it has this annoying tendency to just shut down and start back up again. Sometimes it just does it once and other times it will turn on and shut down multiple times in a row, very random. One pattern I did notice is it only shuts down when it gets to windows at some point. When it is in the middle of restarting
  6. Hello all, I just purchased an EVGA W1 500 watt power supply. It is in a system that has no dedicated GPU and only a 9600k, 8GB of 3200 RAM, and an SSD. PCPP is saying that the system consumes about 152 watts of power, i assume that is max? I know this psu isn't high up on the tier list, but the options at my local micro center were this unit or a unit twice the cost and that is about it. I just want to make sure it's safe for long term use. Is there a high risk of danger if there is a power outage or a potential power surge afterwards? JonnyGuru gave the unit a pretty good sc
  7. Thanks for the link jonny! It mentions on there that the system would get a blue screen of death (BSOD) when an error occurs and then restart, but I never got that blue screen however I did notice that windows was "Trying to repair" itself before it then abruptly restarted over and over again. Not sure if they are related. I mentioned that this restarting problem is not happening anymore, or at least has not happened since fiddling with the PSU but I am having a few other issues that I mentioned in my above post. Do you have any guess as to what the problems might be connected to? C
  8. Hello all, So i just put together a new build, it's just an office machine with no GPU. After I put it all together it was doing this strange thing where every time it got into Windows the PC would restart. Sometimes it was a couple seconds into logging in and sometimes it would not let me log in at all before restarting. Here's the kicker though, if I entered the BIOS and did not go into Windows then the PC would be completely fine and not restart no matter how long I stayed on the BIOS. As soon as I leave the BIOS it would try to load windows and restart. I thought it might have
  9. Have you considered the CORSAIR Obsidian Series 500D RGB SE? It's quite a bit more expensive than the H700, but already comes with a lot of the stuff you were going to buy anyways so the price evens out. Plus I assume all those corsair cables for the fans and what not will be organized and neat out of the box.
  10. If you have to go small, then the NUC is pretty fairly priced. Mini PCs seem overpriced because you're paying for the form factor.
  11. Would I need a 4 pin to 8 pin adapter or will it post with just a 4 pin connected to the board?
  12. Hey guys, So i'm planning out a tiny (Mac Mini) sized pc build with an i3 8100 and no gpu. Mostly doing to be used for surfing the web and word processing and such. The case I want to use come with a tiny 150W PSU that I need to power the system. My only concern is that the PSU only has a 4 pin cpu power plug and every motherboard im considering has an 8 pin power socket. Can I get away with just plugging the 4 pin into the 8 pin slot? I tried reading the manual for the msi b360i, which is a board i am considering, but there is no mention about the information i'm looking for.
  13. As far as I know, yes. I was just questioning whether it would be wise to buy components now instead of waiting for the ryzen chips to release and then buying everything at once.
  14. Unless you stumble upon an amazing deal, or you plan on getting ryzen 2 and then later upgrading to ryzen 3 given motherboard compatabilty, I dont see why you would buy any of the other components right now if you're going to be without a cpu.
  15. Still 1080p 144hz, maybe like a 24-25 inch monitor though because 1080p starts to look pretty bad at 27+. If you can get a 1440p 144hz monitor, even if your GPU can't push out that many frames at 1440p, then you should be set for a long while as it will outlive your graphics card.
