Found a PC in the trash, it didnt boot but, after a trip to best buy I picked up some ram, thermal paste and a psu, I reapplied the thermal paste with some quality MX-4, put in the power supply and put in the ram.....AND It didn't boot.

So them I tried with one stick AND IT BOOTED right into someone elses account. I reset the pc and then inserted the other stick of ram. So that's my success story.

 

SPECS:

i5 6400

MSI 950 2GD5 OCV2

ASROCK Z170 Extreme4

Samsung 950 Pro 512gb

Corsair H60 AIO

Thermaltake X31 RGB

EVGA 450W BR

Why am I never this lucky? "I found a gaming PC in the trash and took the few simple steps required to make it work, and basically made a few hundred bucks from the garbage"

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.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed 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 mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Also, this is the most awkward PC ever. A 6400 in a z170 board, and water-cooled? And no graphics card, but still RGB fan? Bizarre

I agree. Overclockable board with a locked cpu???? And why a watercooler when there are no overclocking abilities??? I think this is a prebuilt though, there is an iBuypower sticker in the back.
