    Default PSU or HDD issue? Recomendation

    Greetings everyone, first i really appreciate what you are doing here.

    Specs :
    Pentium G4560
    GTX 1050
    Gigabyte H110M-H
    1 SSD
    2 HDD
    Tagan Stonerock 500

    So i have question regarding my pc :
    1. Sometimes my pc just freeze themself, so my troubleshooting procedure is to remove one part at a time to find the suspect. I came to conclusion my old Tagan is failing because when i remove the power of both HDD everything seems fine. I try another option (different HDD, different SATA) but anything more than 1 drive (either SSD or HDD) my pc freeze. Can someone confirm this is a PSU issue?

    2. If yes, what would you recommend for new PSU?
    what I'm looking for:
    -reasonably quiet
    -decent reliability
    -max budget 1.200.000 (in Rp)
    -please list more than 3 option if possible
    -store :
    http://enterkomputer.com/psu.php
    http://www.nanokomputer.com/index.ph...8&y=7&cPath=32

    3. I know you should'nt cheap out in PSU, but i really want to know what cheapest PSU in that store that doesn't blowup my pc?

    Thanks.

    Were those drive always connected to the relevant SATA ports (while you were doing your tests/checks)?

    Your english seems rather bad, sorry, and given mine is not that good also, I guess you have to rephrase, please.

    You said: "...when i remove the power of both HDD everything seems fine" - but also that: "...anything more than 1 drive (either SSD or HDD) my pc freeze".

    What should I understand from those phrases? That your rig can't have two HDD both powered by the PSU AND both connected to the mobo? Or that your PSU can't power two hdd EVEN IF those two are actually NOT connected to the mobo? You can easily check this second scenario with a paper clip test.

    Alternatively - if you enabled SATA hot swap in your BIOS - you might boot without any SATA drive powered/connected, and then power/connect both them after booting (when in BIOS or in a USB-based 'nix environment).

    I wrote all that because AFAIK you didn't rule out the mobo ATM.

    Well, if you have another PSU available, you should swap the PSU, instead to ask here (if you don't want to disrupt your roommate PC cabling, then place your mobo and drives on a cardboard next to the other case).

    what i mean is this, sorry to make you confuse. In the end, i rip apart my pc and swap/check every component with my roomate and found same symptom when my old psu powering her rig. otoh my pc work just fine when using her PSU. So the culprit is definitely the PSU.

    Well, in this case your call for advice were moot: you already checked twice the issue.

    Apparently, on enterkomputer the best performance/price ratio historically belongs to the Muscle Power Xanthos 400W (a Seasonic X 400 for the price of a Corsair CXM).
    TBH, I don't know indonesian market, so I can't say whether the Xantos actually worths the praise.

    Next to it (as performance/price ratio) there's the Antec NeoECO II 450W, and probably the Fractal Newton 650W (if it were the R3 version) and the Segotep GP-600T 500W.

    Other interesting options (but with a more or less worse performance/price ratio IMHO) in the 600.000-1.200.000 range are:

    1. Segotep GP-600P 500W
    2. Segotep GP-600G 500W
    3. Corsair CXM Series 450W
    4. Super Flower Platinum King 550W - SF-550P14PE
    5. Seasonic G-450 450W
    6. Antec True Power 550W - TP-550C
    7. Super Flower Leadex Silver 550W - SF-550F14MT
    8. be quiet! STRAIGHT POWER 10 500W CM

    There may be further ones as well, but I guess I can stop here.
    Best, Luca

    Thanks quest of silence tbh this is more than I expected, thanks to you.
    I think i go for either Corsair or Seasonic, based on widely available and aftersales.

    I am curious about Segotep, is it really decent? i have hesitation because they been known here for cheap(thin) gaming case.

    Yes, their high-end lines (G/P) made by Fortech are pretty decent, and their Titanium line should be better too.
