Could be your PSU on it's way out, although I've had instances in the past where Asus Probe has been very inaccurate / buggy..

Any chance you could get a Multimeter and measure the 3.3V output from your PSU?

Would love to but wouldnt have a clue how to so could just be Probe being wrong or as thought my PSU is going ...Is that sort of fluctuation a problem ?

That kind of fluctuation could cause issues..

It could be either Asus Probe being wrong or your PSU on its way out, one option would be to just continue using it - if you start getting random crashing or other problems (most likely to show up under a heavy load) then I would suspect the PSU.

And if you don't have any issues with your PC then just carry on using it.

Also perhaps you could look at borrowing a PSU and see if the problem reported by Asus Probe goes away?

Every thing seams all ok running fine at mo as long asits not going to damage any thing may as well keep useing it ...all my cables areso neatly dun and all cable tied at the back very neatly ( has to be to getthe side pannel on the cosmos 1100 sport case) would take ages to change over to try one

A low voltage shouldn't damage anything, if it were mine I would just keep using it and if you have any problems then start by looking at the PSU.

Irrelevant "measurements".... it doesn't matter what Asus Probe (or any other such tool) measure. To properly measure voltages/drops you will need a DMM. smile.gif

I wonder if ASUS motherboards have issues with monitoring voltages or something. I was just about to post a thread regarding my ASUS motherboard reporting my 3.3v rail at 3.52v. It even caused ASUS's "Anti-surge protection" motherboard feature to shut down my computer automatically. I went ahead and disabled that protection in BIOS, and everything seems fine now. All other voltages are great and I've had no instabilities.

I'm using a SilverStone ST55F-G 550w.

I have sometimes these alert logs with my Asus board. See my rig.

I have this same issue "Anti-surge protection" shutdown.
I keep this feature always disabled.

Every bios update I went to the bios to keep this feature disabled.

My PSU is a Thermaltake Smart Series 630W.

I've heard about this issue with a person that have an Asus board M5A88-V EVO with the latest bios and the psu Corsair TX750 V2.

Hi every one a Update to the about

I think my on going problem may of been sort of solved pleased read below and see if you come to the same conclusion

Four days ago I was started to receive warning messages from Asus probe 2. The Volts all seamed fine when just web browsing but as soon as I loaded up F1 2012 (racing game) I would get the warnings below

[03/11/2013 at 11:28 pm] +3.3V 2.960 Abnormal
[03/11/2013 at 11:28 pm] +3.3V 2.976 Normal
[03/11/2013 at 11:30 pm] +3.3V 2.960 Abnormal
[03/11/2013 at 11:30 pm] +3.3V 2.976 Normal
[03/11/2013 at 11:31 pm] +3.3V 2.960 Abnormal
[03/11/2013 at 11:31 pm] +3.3V 2.992 Normal


I brought a digital PSU tester and tested the PSU every thing seamed fine.

Then the computer would not turn on. If I turned the PSU off at the back then on the computer would go to power up but 4-5 seconds later would shut down.


I then considered the power on button on the case. I removed the Cooler master extension MB 24 pin cable (with the 3 wires to the I/O panel) and replaced it with a standard one pressed the power button on the mother board and she started up fine

I then ran Asus Probe 2 and the game that had brought up the warnings and NO warnings and Probe was telling me my Voltage was back to 3.312.

I then replaced the Cooler master 24 pin MB extension cable with a new one I have and again it would not start.

I then un clipped the three wires from the cable that run up to the I/O panel and pressed the power up on my Mother board and she started fine.

I then clipped back together and re connected the three wires on the CM extension cable but removed the two pin system power wires which come from the I/O panel on to the mother board....pressed the power button on the MB and starts fine.

Next I shut my system down and using the two pin power connector from the I/O panel if I touched these briefly on the two pins on the MB the computer starts up. If I hold it there the computer goes to start up but then shuts down.

The case touch sensitive power button is ultra sensitive and many times have shut my comp down by brushing my sleeve across it while accessing my top panel.

So I suspect the touch sensitive button on the case I/O panel has become stuck on or faulty in some way as when every thing is connected up the comp goes to start up and then shuts down like when you touch the button.
All so since that's not connected my +3.3V readings are fine.

Basicly from what I've said do people come to the same conclusion about the button ?

And has any one got a CM 1100 S I/O panel for sale lol or know where I can get one ?
