Was wondering if you guys could shed some light on a problem im having, my brother asked me to upgrade his rig.
I got him a new motherboard, new case, new ram and new cpu, he is still using the same hard drive,GPU and PSU.
the problem is that after the bios, windows 7 in starting to load up, then blue screens for half a second and the computer restarts.
Case: crosair carbide 400r
motherboard: Asus Z87 pro
CPU: intel core i5 4670 6mb
GPU: evga nvidia gtx 670
Ram: x2 4gb ddr3 kingston
Hard drive: Hitachi 640gb sata 3.0
PSU: dynex DX PS500w
the hard drive is not broken, it works on other computers, so I'm thinking its the power supply, the z87 pro has an 8pin atx 12v, while the PSU has a 4pin atx 12v, i was reading around and people said that you can use the 4pin on the 8pin, but im thinking its not getting enough power.
