18 March 2017 - 01:10 PM

Aloha from Hawaii ,

Been away for a while but posting again.


I built a new Rig again because I had extra parts laying around:

I got another ...Thermaltake GT-10  case for free.   I ordered a .... MSI 970 MoBo and another


Only had some ...PNY 1333  Memory but is at ..... 16 GB ....to use but they worked ok.

 A new .... 850 Watt PU and it is going great.

The new on look just like the other one and built similar also.

This case also has a broken front panel so I am ordering a new one

I also tried a older .....Nvidia Video card but it wont post so I will be getting a higher grade one

Going to install another MoBo and CPU

Aloha ,

Well I decided to do another case and Mobo installation to the spare case I have here.

The case is a .... Coolermaster ...HAF , and the Mobo is a ......  MSI 970A-G46.

Got the MoBo free and it is working from another guy here but no CPU in it.

Using a Corsair ...TX750 Power Unit and have .... 1333 Memory on hand.


Need to know what CPU's will be OK with this one if possible please.

Would a .... AMD Phenom CPU fit this MoBo and would it work OK , and also which one would do it

or another AMD ?

Aloha  LongBike

I need to know if I can use one of these in my Mobo and will it work OK ?

Any help / advice would be much appreciated. I do not do gaming yet just basic use for this P.C.

The Case is a ... Thermlatake LEVEL10 and Mobo is MSI like stated above.

Got a New Mobo and PCU but problem to hook up MoBo to PCU

01 July 2016 - 09:18 PM

Aloha from Honolulu, Hawaii Folks, few months time away been busy too.


Well I got  NEW MOBO and PCU from a friend. It works and he got a Big Boy now so he gave me his old one.

( The MoBo is a good working  ... MSI 970A-G43  / AM3+ / AMD 970 + SB850 SATA / USB 3.0 / ATX / AMD Mother Board )


It was a working and good Board but he got a Big Boy now a Gigabyte .


OK,  I have this ....Corsair TX850W .... in a box here and went to install it in my case here which is a .....

Thermaltake HIGH LEVEL GT10  .... I un-expectedly got for free from another friend also.

He was transferring to California with the Army so he was not taking it with him he said.

Almost brand new about maybe .... 4 months old complete Black case.


I just needed to find out is there a .... ( ADAPTER to use to PLUG IN ) ... too the MoBo to get it to power

from the 850 PSU harness ?


I usually just plug the ... 4 -  Prong Connectors for most .... PCU's.

This PCU has about ....6 Pcie harness wires on it.

I was wondering what one would I use to get the MoBo powered ?

Can some one reply back on this please and it is very much appreciated.

Aloha and thanks for looking into this.
