ASUS P8Z67-V LX USB3.0 Ports Die When Mining.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Okay.. I'm getting some weird problem...

My USB 3.0 ports are dying when I let my computer mine, but the USB 2.0 ports are fine. These are my temps.

First it was with my PCI USB 3.0 card. Now the motherboard's USB 3.0 ports are dead.

Do you mean that they seem to get disabled while mining? If so, then that's because there aren't enough PCI-E lanes.

I wasn't aware they could get disabled.

The PCI card got toasted completely though. Unless the computer turned it off even after I rebooted?

How can I turn it back on again?

No, I'm asking you a question...

 

Are you saying that the ports seem to be getting disabled? Is it like a temporary death? Or is it permanent?

Oooooh. I see.

Looks like it's disabled.

"Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

I also have a Code 10, but I think that's another issue.

For Code 43, I can't find anything other than driver issues. I'm not sure why mining would cause driver errors.

Could it be power supply related?

I am running a pretty old Antec 550W Neopower.

i7-2600k OC'd to 4.4 GHz
Sapphire 7950 (OC'd to 1100/1400)
2 7200 rpm HDDs
1 SSD
3 140mm fans

I used the PSU calculator and it says I only require like 430W.

Oh, so it's just a temporary death. It's being disabled. Again, that may be because this motherboard doesn't have enough PCI-E lanes.

 

Also, 430W is an extremely bloated calculation. If you want to get into why it's a bloated calculation, then I can help. What you would do is, run the calculator again but this time click its built-in Print button. Then, post a screenshot of the white printer-friendly page that it brings up (.PNG format is the best for this). I will be able to show you what settings made the estimate get so bloated. It's just an offer. It's not really that important.

Uhh. I'm not sure if I'm using the same calculator as you.

I am using eXtreme Outer Vision's calculator


or http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1842811/

I'm still a bit confused about not having enough PCI-E lanes. How does mining affect the motherboard's USB ports? Are those also via PCI-E, just soldered? (Sorry, I'm a nub, I just build. I don't know the hardware tech)

Thanks for the help!

The "High rpm SATA" selection is for hard drives that are 10,000 RPM and faster. If yours are 7200 RPM, then you have "Regular SATA"

 

What card do you have that's a PCI-E x1? Remove this from the calculator if you were entering this one for your video card.

 

In the USB devices, you have 4. Are you including the mouse and keyboard? Don't, because they're pre-calculated in this calculator.

 

Also, do all 4 USB devices draw power from the PSU?

 

System Load: set this to 75% for the most reasonably-accurate calculation. This is the biggest problem.

 

Now what does it say? Check it out:

 

SlvrDragon50PSU.png

 

259W minimum, 309W recommended. This is almost 100% accurate.

 

I used the Pro version of their calculator so that you can see the +12V capacity recommendation as well. It's 21.6A. This is 259.2W (or just 259W). You might notice that this is the minimum PSU wattage that they have listed. It's just a coincidence. Anyway, this means that any good quality-made 400W PSU would be more than enough. You could even use the 360W SeaSonic G Series because its +12V capacity is 360W.

 

The reason the +12V output is so important is because the vast majority of a computer runs on 12V power. Here's how it breaks down:

 

http://www.overclock.net/t/722251/on-psu-voltages

 

Here's proof about the accuracy of this calculation:

 

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/his_radeon_hd_7950_review,8.html

 

With one 7950 under full load in their system, their PSU pulled 300W from the wall outlet. Their CPU was idling, so I have to add 115W for the 2600K at 4.4 GHz using 1.2V (at least according to this PSU calculator). So, that makes the PSU pulling 415W from the wall outlet. This means that if the PSU is 85% efficient while pulling 415W from the wall outlet, then the computer would be pulling 353W from the PSU. However, your gaming power draw will be even lower, peaking at roughly 300-325W.

 

Anyway, so as you an see it's definitely not the PSU's fault.

I don't know how to answer this in my own words, so I have to do this:

Ah okay, so problem lies elsewhere.

So my computer just crushed (don't know why, no BSOD, just noise and then restart). Good news, MOBO USB ports work again. PCI-E USB card still doesn't work, I am pretty sure the card is toasted. I have a new one on the way.

I'm just not sure why the computer would shutdown the MOBO USB ports. I don't know if you can answer this, but do onboard USB ports count towards PCI-E lanes? I see now that the PCI-E x16 (VGA) shares bandwidth with the USB PCI-E card so I can see why the USB card failed. Just not sure why the onboard ports did.

I believe so. Look up information about ASUS's PLX technology. This will help explain exactly what's happening:

Unfortunately, now you'll lose some of your love for your motherboard because it doesn't have anything like this.
