Description

I built this system for the purpose of gaming and streaming at the same time on the same machine sometimes from the Elgato from my Xbox one everything has worked flawlessly. It's my first build. I was super nervous about building it and was on a budget. I was so surprised it booted without a single problem!

Be very careful not to draw more than 450W on the PSU.

In the end, it may not matter because the 450 B3 has other, more serious problems. It looks like Super Flower made a huge mistake in its design, which poses a major safety risk. We noticed that the over-power protection triggering point is set way too high. Even under normal operating temperatures, one of the primary FETs in our store-bought sample, along with some other components, blew up. Either SF should set its OPP point much lower or use components able to handle higher amperage. We were also disturbed by the fact that, after the primary side shorted out, the PSU's fuse didn't blow. Every time we applied power, we saw sparks. Obviously, that's a fire hazard.

I was aware of this and am running it not even close to 450W but thanks for the concern!

Could easily save money selling some unnecessary items.

It's my streaming and gaming build. I didn't ask for your input money wise.

Could have save and spent money on something else if you didn't get windows and gotten a $20 key
