It all went smoothly. My cable management isn't fantastic, but it runs games great!
Are you sure 450w is enough :o?
Yes, I am sure. It works fine. I don't have much wattage to get many more components, but this PSU work fine for the time being.
You know, for $3 extra you can get a fully modular 80+ gold psu from evga and at 650 watts.
I was gonna ask the same as Tommo. Can you computer still run smooth and stable with only that much Power? Sorry if I sound nooby, but I'm new when it comes to power supplies.
It works fine. I don't have room for many more components though.
I like the compact small size of this build/case, but I'm concerned about a GTX970 and the 450W Pwer Supply even tho is 80+ Gold, get an estimated calculation here -=-> http://www.coolermaster.outervision.com/ there are many tools around to test how much Wattage you really need.
He should be fine.
It works fine. I checked with many people to make sure it would be enough before ordering.
Nice build but i am concerned about your CPU does it bottleneck the GTX 970 in any of the New titles like Assassin's creed unity and so on ?
A bit more than a better i5, maybe i loose a few frames here or there, but this was going up against my budget and it was the best i could get
I know you've gotten a lot of PSU/GPU questions, but did the GPU require 1 or 2 PCIE power inputs? I'm running the same PSU with a MSI Gtx 970, and it requires two 6-pin PCIE inputs. Unfortunately the PSU only came with one 6/8 pin PCI connector (I'm using a SATA cable and a PCI/SATA adapter for now for the second 6-pin slot). Did you encounter this at all?
