Description

Everything went together flawlessly. Unfortunately Microcenter took about a week to even place my order but made up for it with next day shipping. This is my very first build and as you can see I ordered a sound card even though the mother board has a better one right on it. I will be doing some gaming but built this mainly for school work and autodesk inventor 2015 work, so 3d modeling and running intense analysis's on welded parts. It ran the program like butter until I went to do an actual stress analysis and this takes A LOT of gpu and cpu to complete. Fellow classmates have waited 20 min with i7 quad cored laptops (I know there not the best thing for this but still decent processors), my analysis was done in 3 min. I went to download the report and boooom blue screen. 0xa000001. Issue was fixed from a setting in the inventor software.

Thank you everyone for your support the CX750 PSU did the trick. No more BSOD!!!

I have that case too, getting ready to paint it candy red. Here's some advice: Flip your psu over, run the 8 pin cpu connector behind the mobo, and remove any hard drive cages you aren't using.

Already have the extra cages out. Thats a good idea for the 8 pin though!! Candy red would be sick!!!!

Thanks You, MUCH APPRECIATED!! I am about to order a EVGA 750W PSU though, I have done the research and my PSU is under powered for this build.

should not be though, i hope everything works out :)

Usually, most psu's round their amount of power they actually use. It is recommended to get up to ~80% power used at max utilization.

That PSU should be enough. most of the time a 750w Is over kill unless you plan on crossfiring/SLI. Sweet build BTW +1

500W is plenty I have a 270x as well except it is the 2gb version and a 6350 instead of the 6300 which is an overclocked version of the 6300 and I'm running fine with a 650W psu and I have enough headroom for 2way crossfire

probably with a good psu but im pretty sure the CX series wont if overclocking...

Ya, that's why I went the CS.

The asus r9 270x right on the box says it requires a minimum of 500W/12v/24A the cx500W only puts out around 456W/12V... When running this graphics card at full speed it is overclocked out of the box and can draw a lot of power. Using the gpu monitor the card comes with I can straight see a power surge during the stress analysis I need to run then boom, blue screen.

But how often does the card reach full load except in stress tests.... probably very rarely.

True but my I am in college and due to my major I will be using them all the time.

Does your 650w have 4 pci-e power connectors then to hook up another gpu? What brand do you have?

  • 65 months ago
  • 1 point

It is a Corsair CS650, it has 2 pci-e connectors for the modular cables which split into 2 6+2 pin connectors to the GPU, so I can sli/ crossfire up two 2 cards each having 2 8pin (wouldn't want to do that though, but I will be crossfireing 2 270Xs

  • 65 months ago

Each 270x has 2 6 pin power connectors. (sorry for the questions but like the description says im a noobie) how would you split 2 6 pins into 4? I might be not understanding fully how crossfire/sli works also. Thanks for the information!

Yes, get a new PSU. Get at least 650W so you can upgrade and overclock that CPU. fyi, you can get a good overclock with a decent aftermarket air cooler since you have a good mobo.

Hey man i was wondering if uoi could check out my build (http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/M6sTt6) and tell me your opinion

Your build looks really solid man! I would insure that your case doesnt come with fans first, I believe my case had no information about case fans untill I checked out the actual brands website. Looking to overclock at all because personally I think the cpu cooler that comes with the amd 6300 is plenty as long as you arent overclocking. I havent reached anything above around 43°C and that was under a constant clock speed of 3.7. The 6300 comes out of the box unlocked and turboed. Great choice for the money I would say.

Haha, so similar to my build im planning. Hows that GPU working out? I ordered a AMD 8350k for 130$ (on sale). Just need to figure what GPU I want.

  • 65 months ago

GPU is absolutely amazing. I know mine craft is more cpu intensive but on fancy everything and even running a 64 bit resource pack im around 180-230 FPS depending on map rendering.

Play any GPU intensive gameS?

  • 65 months ago
  • 1 point

Not really. The most GPU intensive thing I do is 3D cad drawing in autodesk inventor and when I do that its still giving me a BSOD when trying to collect the report from a Stress Analysis.

I have virtually the same build as you, and Autodesk 2015 works just fine for me.

  • 65 months ago

Are you running FEA analysis? it only happens when I run a stress analysis on a fully welded part. Autodesk 2015 runs great if im just drawing and doing 3d stuff but once I run an analysis it fails.

Really solid part choices. Looks like you will get a lot of bang for your buck with this build! Great looking build for your first time as well! +1

I actually ended up not buying that and just found an Ethernet cable laying around. Sorry about that. :(

I actually dont know. I never ended up using it, I still have it brand new in the box. I use the ASUS on board and it sounds great!
