  1. many many thanks indeed for your detailed reply........ Specs of the PC.........(9 years old already) embarrassing to say the least.......a Single-Core AMD Athlon CPU.......1GB + 2GB RAM.......no graphic card.......had a 320GB HDD but ''upgraded'' to a 500GB SSD........ the CMOS battery has been dead for years.......LOL.......i only need to adjust the time + date every day so i didn't bother getting a new battery........ i only suspected the PSU like maybe the power cable for the SSD was broken......i tried it using the DVD-R
  2. hi, i'm getting a new budget desktop but just curious about what's at fault........my 9yo old Acer desktop just died...... it was fine when i shut it off for the night but when i tried to power it on in the morning, the light came on for a few seconds (after the beep) then went out..........same thing despite several tries...... i opened up the PC.......switched the SSD's SATA cable and used the DVD-ROM's power cable and still the same thing........ i then connected the old HDD using just the DVD-ROM's power cable and the CPU fan then started goi
  3. many thanks for your reply..... so the CoolerMaster MasterWatt isn't as good ?......any other suggestions as the Seasonic S12III was badly reviewed.....some said it is worse than S12II...... the B450m Pro4 is better than the Steel Legend ?.......why is that so since the Steel Legend has higher power chokes and high-end Japanese capacitors ?...... actually the ONLY reason i like the Steel Legend is becoz it's using 4 better audio capacitors while the Pro4 has 2 lower quality audio capacitors.......any difference when plugging earphones to the rear audio jack
  4. hi, i'm getting someone to build a really budget desktop for me and only recently realized that a lousy PSU can destroy the Motherboard & other parts........... my cheapo system will be a ASRock B450m Pro-4 or B450m Steel Legend (which one is better ?).....with 1pc of 8GB of RAM and a SSD..........Ryzen3 3200G with no graphic card at all.........i won't be over-clocking and i don't play games at all..... i was thinking of the below PSU choices since their pricing are quite close....... (from all the reviews i've read, seems all budget PSUs are junk) Thermaltake = Smart RGB
