Hi
Just a question that's been bothering me. If you are ever in a build situation where you don't have enough power

1) What are the symptoms?
and
2) What is the worse case scenario? ie can mobo, CPU or GPU be damaged?

It will power off abruptly, typically. It can cause instability if the voltage are right in the edge due to being driven too hard.

What set up do you have and psu?

Are you experiencing issues with your system that led you to believe you might not have sufficient power?
