The PSU is about a month old and worked flawlessly in a p67 system. I haven't disable probe 2 yet but i am close. It throws up all kinds of crap like vcores of 0.5v which would crash the system. I can also see stats in Aida64 which do not correlate with asus suite. Its nuts.
It has different readings for the 5v and 12 v (slightly).
I'll check nothing is sorting the case/motherboard - but other than that this is some sort of screwy bios that needs sorting.
The Anti-Surge protection on the board is also shutting down the PC and rebooting.
This is with the pc running on a strip with surge protection and straight from the wall.
I find it hard to believe that my PSU is acting up after flawless performance at same setting on a P67 board. Is there a compatibility issue with Corsair and Asus? I have a digimeter handy so could check some readings.
I had a very similar problem with the P8Z77-V (stock settings, 3570k, new EarthWatts 430W, surge-protected, running for 2 days now). While running AIDA64 Stability Test, AI Suite has given two popup error messages
- Claimed the CPU fan was at 0 RPM (it wasn't, verified by inspection and the AIDA graph)
- Claimed the +5V supply was at 0 V (AIDA showed it has been rock stable).
In both cases all fans went to max speed after the 'error'. Restart restored to normal.
My Kill-a-watt meter reports all of 100W from the wall during Aida (no video card installed yet), so the 430W PS is not exactly being taxed.
Prime95 ran just fine for 8 hours. I'm guessing AIDA was interfering with AI Suite when both tried to query the system data?
I've uninstalled all of the AI Suite and running AIDA now... 2.5 hours in and so far ok.
I also had 1 reboot due to the Asus Anti-Surge protection. Not sure what's up there, but given your experience and others, I'm suspecting Asus. Google shows many reports of this issue; some have solved it by replacing the PS, others have asked Asus, who told them to disable the anti-surge. Especially see posts 18 and 19:
Is anyone else with an Asus Z77 having these issues?Edited by david82282 - 5/13/12 at 12:00pm
