#2630 PC Build Thread in Hardware

My budget is approx INR 90,000-110,000. I'm considering the unlocked CPU combo for future-proofing if I overclock later, but that's where I'm confused; on whether or not that will be necessary. Also, I've been a bit behind the times on the latest hardware; by Zen do you mean Ryzen? I'm mainly avoiding AMD because I want to leave myself the option of a hassle free Hackintosh dual boot.

I'm a freelance designer/editor/digital artist and this is basically going to be my main workstation, so if it's worth the money I don't mind spending.

#2627 PC Build Thread in Hardware

So I very quickly made a part list, but it's difficult to find accurate prices for stuff because online prices are nonsense, and retail rates are a good deal lower.

Part list

From a little research, I found I will probably need an M.2 drive for active projects, especially if I want to work real time on 4K video. The reason for the NVIDIA card is the fact that CUDA support within 3D and rendering applications is far better than OpenCL. Beyond that, 16GB of RAM in two 8GB modules because I can't really see myself requiring anything more than 32GB, and having two modules means if one fails I can still at the very least use my computer while getting the other replaced. Still not sure about overclocking, but I'm considering it now. Completely clueless about cooler, and for the cabinet I'm looking for something that's not too big, and something that might have filters on the fan exhausts. Issue with the cabinet again is availability.

#2609 PC Build Thread in Hardware

So I need to build a new PC to replace the nearly 5 year old one I'm currently using. My budget is around $1100, but some components here are a good deal more expensive than they are in Europe or NA.

I'd like to be able to comfortably edit/render 4K video and 3D scenes on this build, in addition to being able to play games(mostly TF2, Quake Champions) at good framerates. I also want to be able to go Hackintosh dual boot with minimal fuss, but that's a secondary consideration. I feel like I won't need to/don't want to overclock even 2-3 years down the line, plus I imagine that will reduce my build cost by a decent amount.

As for components from my old build, I have two 120GB SSDs(Samsung 850 and an Intel 330) and a 2TB WD storage drive. While I don't really want to buy a new SSD, if working on my video clips off the disk drive may be a bottleneck while editing I would consider purchasing a new SSD maybe to work on active projects.

EDIT: I was looking at something like a coffee lake i7, Z370 Gigabyte board, 16GB of Gskill RAM, GTX 1060 and a Seasonic PSU.

#22 PC shuts off 2 seconds after boot in Hardware

Really late, I know, but I eventually gave up and dropped it at a repair shop. Turns out the motherboard, PSU and even the processor had problems. Luckily everything was under warranty and the repair place charges a very minimal service fee.

#20 PC shuts off 2 seconds after boot in Hardware

So, it's apparently not the PSU either. I brought it home, connected the CPU and 24-pin connectors to my board, and the PC immediately boots(into BIOS) and even stays on, whereas with my friend's PC it won't even start up any more.

I'm completely fucking stumped at this point.

Thanks, I'll try to get the PSU to my house and connect it up here asap.

#17 PC shuts off 2 seconds after boot in Hardware

So an update. The day before I took the motherboard in nothing would come on, not even for a second, but when I checked the PSU separately the fan would start up. I took the mobo to the service center, they checked it, cleaned it, replaced some part of it and it booted and reached the BIOS with their PSU/CPU/RAM setup.

I brought it back, reseated the CPU, thoroughly cleaned the CPU fan, re-applied thermal paste, connected the CPU fan, one stick of RAM and booted. So it booted up(unlike before I took the mobo in) but only for 10 seconds(nothing on the display) before powering down and then and endless cycle of the same powering on and off. I re-checked the standoffs, checked all the cables again, moved the PSU out as far as the cables would allow me and cleaned it, and it finally booted, both with OS X and Windows. So then I put in the 2nd stick of RAM, put in the GPU and try again; once again, it boots both into OS X and Windows with no issue.
Finally, I re-connect the side panel fans(and may have potentially brushed some other cable with my hand), put the panel back, press the power button, and am just about to clean up, when I realise it's doing the 10 second endless boot cycle shit again. I rebooted after disconnecting all the case fans, and it still refuses to get out of the boot loop.

I'm really lost at this point. Should I take the PSU home and check it with my setup, or could it have anything to do with the cabinet fans?

Think I'll send the motherboard in after I check the PSU. Thanks for the help everyone

#14 PC shuts off 2 seconds after boot in Hardware

Well, like I said, on the 16th I reset the CMOS battery, checked the MOBO/CPU power connectors, re-seated the RAM(and tried one stick), shorted the power button pins on the motherboard with a screwdriver. Today I cleaned and re-seated the GPU, tried connecting the monitor to the GPU DVI port, and then to the motherboard DVI port(without GPU connected)

I'll try the paperclip test tomorrow or day after when I get a chance to go there.

Tried onboard graphics earlier, but that didn't help. How would the paperclip test help now that it's actually staying on?

#9 PC shuts off 2 seconds after boot in Hardware

Ok, so I tried removing, cleaning and re-seating the GPU and it powered on and stayed on after that. Only problem is now the display refuses to turn on and the monitor immediately enters sleep mode, both with and without the GPU installed. No beeps, doesn't even reach the BIOS. Really hoping it's not a motherboard issue.

Any suggestions on what to try next? I don't want to send in the motherboard without actually being sure it's the issue.

Thanks, I'll give that a shot. Any recommendations on good PSUs in case I need to buy a new one?

#1 PC shuts off 2 seconds after boot in Hardware

So the work machine I assembled for a friend of mine two years ago is now refusing to boot. If I press the power button, the lights and fans come on for a couple of seconds, and it then powers off with no beeps. Pressing the power button for some minutes after that doesn't even turn anything on. After a good 10 minutes maybe, it will turn on for 2 seconds again(leading me to believe it might be a capacitor in the PSU?).

I've reset the CMOS battery, checked the MOBO/CPU power connectors, re-seated the RAM(and tried one stick), checked the power button pins on the motherboard. I didn't have a screwdriver at the time to try booting without the GPU.
Some background history; we moved this PC to my friend's house 6 months ago, and he stays literally 20 metres from the sea, and the PC is right near the window as well, so it gets pretty dusty. I also made the ridiculously stupid mistake of buying an Antec Lanboy Air for the cabinet on my friend's insistence, so the damn thing is literally a complete dust/humidity magnet.
I can't afford to take the PSU out and test it at my place at the moment since I don't have time, but I'd just like some opinions on what the issue could be.

Specs:
GA-Z87M-D3H
i7 4770k
2 x 4GB Kingston HyperX
2 x 120GB Samsung 850
AMD HD 6850
Windows/OS X dual boot
Corsair VS 650
