I've recently upgrade my pc. I have an 8 pin connector on my MB. My PSU, also has an 8 pin, but cause I have a full tower, it won't reach, no matter what. I've connected the 4 pin connector to the 8, and my PC booted. However, when running games that require use of the GFX card (games, windows experience index), my PC auto reboots itself.
Another issue. My old HDD doesn't show up, anywhere after installing my new ssd. Bios, Computer Management, nothing. Should it be plugged into a sata 6.0 gb, or a sata 3.0 gb? or is that even the issue?
500 gb HDD
120 GB SSD
550 Rosewill Powersupply.
8gb 1600 ram
3570k 3.4 ghz processor
EVGA 660 FTW video card
1: should I buy an extention and get full use of all 8 pins?
2: Could the HDD be too old and need to be upgrade? Also, should HDD be in 3.0/s Sata connection?
3: do I need to replace my Power supply cause it's too weak for my build?
Thanks ahead of time for the answers.
