Started building a pc 1 year ago ish, for my birthday got the last part, the gpu.
I intentionally planned on a
b360g mobo
i5 8500
1060 6gb
500w psu
Budget said go look used 570/580, so i found a 580 sapphire nitro+, but i already had everything else, it took a 8+6 pin, i had only 8, worked for about 2 weeks then started slowly dying, motherboard had some issues, i suspect north bridge died(cant be 100% sure, warranty report said it had a scratch (which shouldnt affect it)), whatevs, im getting a new mobo right this day, some people told me failure could occur again, and get another psu, currently a xilence xp 500w.
Yes, i know, i Removed up in terms of psu.
surprise surprise, first time building a pc
no oc doing for me

Can't really help it, just waited too
so long to play
We already know you need a new PSU. How much longer would it take you to wait if you need to also buy a new GPU, CPU, motherboard, or some combination of all of these, after you destroy them with a dangerous PSU?

"OK, so my brakes on the car don't work. Can I still drive the car as long as I drive slowly and then slowly coast to a stop?"

You made a very poor purchase with this PSU. Why are you so determined to double-down on your mistake? Just wait until you have the proper safety equipment.
