Its a WIP. It honestly may never get to where I want it to be so just deal with the grammatical errors:P
I am not very good at writing nor am I super creative so I'll just cut to the chase, if you ever want some help or advice feel free to message me. I'll get back to you as soon as possible which might mean immediately or the next few days and anything in between. If I haven't got back to in a few days just remessage me.
I also noticed I have forgot about some people when they PM/Reply, I don't do this on purpose. I am just often mutli tasking or busy with life. If you want to make sure I reply just ask me to comment on your thread since I am likely to keep that open in a new tab until I help where as with the PM's I just put them off until later and sometimes I forgot about them. Just reply/message me again again if its been like a week or so since if its been that long I likely forgot.
I am 20 years old. I am a male if you didn't figure that out. I'm a CS major. I love helping people out and I love to tinker with things and see how they work and push things to the limit. This is how I got into PC's in case you was wondering I am a pretty open minded person. Also I am a ISTP which does explain a lot about who I am. Yes English is my first language. I just make a lot of typos and don't proof read what I type which is why it seems like I have the writing skills of a 5 year old.
Avoid PSU tier lists!!! Why you may ask? Here is why you should avoid the ones at Toms and the same goes for the PCMR one since it similar but much older and hasn't been updated in almost 3 years iirc. The LTT isn't as bad but you are using someone else thoughts of someone else thoughts on a PSU, information can easily get jumbled up. Just cut the middle main out and go to a professional review.
Make sure everything is plugged in all the way, double check. Remove all of the varaibles possible to your problem. If it is fine without all of the variables start reintroducting them one at a time to see what is causing your problem. If that fails post on the trouble shooting section
PSU - Power Supply Warning: Technical terms.
CPU - Central processing unit
RAM - Random Access Memory
OS - Operating system
HDD- Hard Disk Drive
SSD- Solid State Drive
GPU/Video Card - Graphical Processing Unit
Any CPU can bottleneck any GPU. Just depends on your performance vs visual quality expectations and the types of applications or games being run and the conditions they are being run in. - Allan_M_Systems
Popular units to avoid for the most part unless budget and/or price of the unit dictates otherwise.
Corsair CX(The older ones without the white logo) series - Basically mediocre performance with they usually being overpriced.
Evga NexG aka G1/NexB aka B1Nex series - the NexG has not so good voltage regulation and is group regulated and has some build quality blunders. It is all around average which is not a bad thing but it is usually priced with units that are out of its leauge.
The NexB is based on a platform that has minimal information out on it, it is a totally blind purchased.
Evga B1 series - same as CX.
Evga W1 series- Same as the CX and B1 but they are usually the cheapest you ever want to go on a psu and are usually the cheapest psu that isn't a pile of junk.
The Evga 400 watt nothing - This review sums it up good - the main issue is it being rated at 25C which will give it a short life.

Seagate is unreliable. That is based on a fairly old study, used OEM drives so not your average consumer drives, and is in a enterprise environment. Current Blackblaze data suggest Seagate is right behind Hitachi for relativity.
