Description

After originally looking in laptops for my gaming needs I soon released that a laptop of this spec would cost around 2000€. The build itself took around 30 minutes with little to no hassle, the case provides little to no cable management so i was left stuffing the remaining cables in the space beside the power supply. I was surprised with how easy it was to build inside such a small case. The real hassle started when i attempted to install windows 7 (I know outdated), every time i attempted to start the process to install windows the program would tell me that it was missing some drivers but wouldn't tell me which ones. After a couple of hours of trying to install via USB stick , using different disks and installing it via a different computer i stumbled upon this tutorial Youtube tutorial. In total the installation took around 12 hours.

Benchmarks: Unigine heaven: *ultra preset , full HD * Average:64.3 FPS Low:7.6 FPS High:134.2 FPS GTA 5 : Ultra settings: 58 FPS , Smooth 60FPS with a slight overclock Cities Skyline: 60 FPS ultra settings 1080P

You aren't actually using a 300w power supply are you?

That is pretty ballsy of you with that 300W PSU. Anyway, love people whos acutally pushing their PSU's, seems way more planned out instead of buying something waaaay overkill just to be sure. Super nice build!

thanks , the only thing that could happen if i had too small of a psu is the system wouldn't run , had the rig for around 3 weeks and it runs perfectly

I think you're fine man. youre propably pushing the psu 80-90% which isn't the best, but it works, and its a quality unit, so i think you're good :)

Nice one!

I call it stupid, not ballsy. When for the exact same amount of money you can put a 130w-200w fail safe on your equipment. I know for 9 series cards Nvidia specifically recommended 500w+. I know the 1060 is a bit better on tdp but I can't imagine they would recommend under a 400w, and that is from the manufacturer of the most expensive part in this build.

I recommend u change the PSU with a EVGA Supernova 550 G2 PSU. Its a very good PSU and its good for ur rig

I'm about to make a build for a living room pc as a console killer. My build is almost the same! Exact same cpu, motherboard, memory, video card and case! The differences are that I'm going for a full terabyte ssd and I'm going for a 500 W 80+ gold SFX-L Silverstone PS. In addition to being able to handle the peak power, the long form factor PS accommodates a larger fan that will not have to run as loud.

People don't tend to include peripheals, like a monitor, in their completed build, because it's not important to include.

For anyone wondering why i have such a small psu , unfortunately a little bit of budgeting had to be done , the psu was kinda bumped down to stay in budget , The psu is only temporary and ill probably upgrade in the near future

Hi! I am new to building computers, but am making to build this winter with the help of a few friends :) Do you think this set-up is capable of streaming games at a solid framerate and ping? ~thanks

as far as streaming goes im not sure , it definitely holds up against most triple A titles

The PSU is fine. Don't spread FUD.

People don't understand this. They see the estimated wattage in the parts list and think its fine... it doesn't account for max power usage. You could sneeze on your keyboard and overclock your gpu enough to trip that psu in a heartbeat.

I don't know why are you being downvoted. Probably by the people who are patting their backs and cheaping out on a low wattage psu

  • 37 months ago

Umm, the wattage number listed is the estimated max draw.

That's all fine and good, but most people will say a psu is only good for 80-85% its rating and lose the rest in heat. Good for him if this lasts but I personally wouldn't trust it.

You're mistaking the efficiency of the conversion for headroom. Two different things.

I agree there should be headroom. This is a 300W PSU with a build estimating max draw around 220W. 73% of the rated wattage.

The 80% and wasted heat involves taking power from the mains and converting to the rated wattage. In that case, it's delivering its rated power, but what it is drawing from the wall socket is 25% more (1/.8).

So it's fine if you think he should change his PSU. But it's important to not be mixing up facts while trying to bolster your argument.

Then someone can say that instead of saying "you're wrong" or "I'm a professional". Thanks for explaining that, more people should do that instead of whining and giving 0 info.
