They're engineered and tested in Japan IIRC
Maybe the power supplies are so damn inefficient (5% efficiency? :O) that they have to protect people from their power bill.
I know how, put 4 290's in a top mounted PSU case with an opteron 64 core!
Best you can probably do is a thin foam sheet attached to the anansi by tape.
Mine is the REVERSE, My fingers are so heavy that the impact from the short travel distance on chiclets give me RSI after a while.
But seeing the other W1-B1-G1 units it probably has cheap capacitors- it's best to go with the G2 B2 P2 series.
Looks like I'm recommending Hydro G and XFX XTR from now on.
Gaterons are actually pretty good- they come lubed from the factory unlike cherries which a lot of people really like.
The knucker's a great board for 40 bucks, if you're okay with chinese Gaote/Outemu switches then the Qisan boards are worth a shot for 40 bucks aswell.
G100s and the non backlit qisan boards?
Do SS capacitors even exist? Pretty sure they're usually CapXon
And the XT line uses CS capacitors which are pretty bad- the unit seems to be made to compete with the lines of the CX units. Even then the S12II is available for nearly the same price and is usually more reliable.
Consider either the S12II 620W bronze or the G2 550w if you fancy something modular.
Well to be honest skylake is needlessly more expensive while offering only around 10-15% better performance, personal preference really.
No telling for sure, but seeing as the i5 2500 is still pretty strong I'd say it'd be a long time. (If CPU's still advance at the rate it is advancing right now, which can likely change with AMD's Zen)
Not exactly, but there are solutions around this here
If this still concerns you feel free to switch to the 960, which is about only 10% slower than the 380x at a lower price tag.
Performance troubles are usually only in the first 2 weeks of a game release by Nvidia, after then the game is patched to optimize AMD cards. Whether or not it is okay with you is up to you, but the 380X after game patches is more powerful than a comparable 960.
Glad to be of assistance :)
Here we have real evidence, thanks for reaching out.
750 with OS, should run any game at 720p at High-Ultra settings without sweating, don't really know anything about Mouse and Keyboards but the CM Devastator seems like a good combo.

Weird, try posting in the Operating System forums to see if they can do anything about it
It really all depends on the units, the CX series PSU's tend to last 3 years but units like Seasonic's S12II series and many of Super Flower's units like the EVGA G2/B2/P2 units will last 5-10 years or even more.
I dub thee sir gifman
450W is with overclocks, without OC the card will run in the 350-400 range with an i7 4790K@stock
NCIX has a $50 build fee, and you can choose whatever parts you want to include as long as it's from them.
Xeon 1231 v3 and an R9 fury
Best value for your budget, should render pretty well and run games like minecraft and CS:GO with the sliders at max.

My god that's hilarious. Thanks for making my day!
Thanks for your understanding.
As I said, it was a misjudgement by me and I apologize for that. (It's been somewhat of a rough day for me, so that might be rubbing off on my attitude when reading posts)
Well it should do the job, good quality but your upgrade path is a tad limited. Best you can upgrade to sadely is a 960 on that unit, a 970 is pushing it but without any component overclocks but it -might- work. (Do at your own risk)
Eh, took it the wrong way. My apologies.
The G2 is the better unit, has much better ripple.
Not really, this unit has high quality and will do for your build for the fraction of the cost of the CS unit
EDIT: Overlooked the AU tag in the link, disregard post.
The Seasonic S12II 620W is another option.
What PSU do you have?
Some units have a feature where the fan doesn't spin at low loads to keep the noise to a minimum, and if so, your problem likely isn't something that is related to the PSU at all.
The gaming M5 is much better than the PC Mate, compared to the PC mate the M5 has much better VRM's and will overclock much better to boot.
Try not to judge motherboard viability by form factor.
The truepower is honestly worth going over budget for, has much better capacitors and will likely last you a long time compared to the EVGA unit.
High quality capacitors, good ripple and voltage regulation.
Judging a PSU by it's efficiency is terrible, don't do it.
Great unit for cheap, 55 bucks should be more than enough to power your system
Raidmax PSU's make for great paperweights, door stoppers, tire stoppers, toasters and fireworks 10/10
It's a low end unit but should fit your needs. (Your rig will only pull 250W at stock MAX, so you should have some wiggle room to OC in)
Any seasonic units you can buy there?
It should be enough (But the PSU you bought is absolutely terrible for the price you paid for it, no offense)
Contact XFX support and see if they can help you troubleshoot your problem.
Take a picture of the sticker on your PSU so I can check whether or not the unit has enough amperage to run the card.
Great bang for buck at your budget
While I can understand where you're at with this you have to understand that the PSU is the single MOST important part of the system, and if you have your crappy PSU blow out on you and damage your components then all your money you spent on the system will go DOWN THE DRAIN
Save up and invest in a good quality PSU that will last you 10 years, you won't regret doing so.
This thing comes with a proper stock cooler with heatpipes, similar to the FX line, so that's something,
Just $10 more than the A6, has nearly twice the IPC of the a6 and upgradability is better in the long run.
Out of the box performance is better with the A6+6450 crossfire though, But still not entirely that good.
All Seasonic OEM PSU's have Japcaps.
And XFX relies on seasonic solely for their PSU's
Made a huge mistake on my part,
A $350 with an R270 and a JapCap PSU is not feasable, My apologies :I
