I have power before plugging in my GPU then nothing after I do Tags: Build Systems Last response: September 30, 2011 1:57 AM in Systems Share askysoblue September 29, 2011 11:26:56 PM Hello all, long time lurker. I have a problem with my first build. I plug in my CPU and everything seems to power up as normal but when I put the graphics card in the mix I get a half spin from the fans then the system stops. PSU; ANTEC Green 650W GPU; MSI Gforce GTX 560 If any more information is needed let me know. Im pretty new to this and would really like to complete a semi-successful build myself. Thanks!

Heres a link to my amazon wishlist if you care to look it over. It has all the parts excluding a Tseries biostar mobo. Ill be back in about an hour.

Get the answer askysoblue September 30, 2011 1:57:39 AM Okay, Ive realized there must be something wrong with the PSU. Im only hooking up the mobo, CPU and GPU to the Power supply and it gets power only with the CPU and mobo plugged in. My specs are intel i5 CPU LGA 1155 Sandybridge MSI Gforce GTX560 Biostar Tseries ATX Elixir 4GB RAM x2 Other than that Im not entirely sure. Im not home atm but am considering taking it to a shop. Although, since I am living in Japan that may be quite a chore. Any ideas? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
