Hello I am. Making a new build with a I3 9100f and a z390 motherboard(I buy a z390for future update) and I have some left over psus that I belive are totally bad so I have 2 fsps bluestorm 500wat they only have a 4pin cpu while the msi z390 a pro have 8pin. I Olso have a Corsair 430cx I belive its most safe but low watt. I Olso have a Inter tech coba nitro xchange 500watt 80 plus....i fear this one...... What do you thing should I go? For?
 
honestly, that's - depending on local pricing - not the best of ideas. Intel especially in the lower price brackets can't really compete with AMD and the next CPU line by Intel won't be compatible with Z390 most likely.

Imho you're better of with a Ryzen 2600 and a B450 board with the option to upgrade to up to a 3900X/4900X

430W is actually plenty depending on your GPU. given the age of the unit it's questionable though.
 
CX430s were medeocre when they came out nearly a decade ago, Dont use that.

FSP makes some good PSUs, but im unsure about that model.

The innertech model is questionable, dont use that.

What GPU are you using? The 9100f has no igpu.

Just a Nvidia 8600 for screen until I decide what to buy. Btw I installed the fsp Pc runs fine. of course I didnt stress it... Etc.. Should I leve it and make some tests or get rid of it in the first chance?
