ASUS North America - ASUS Z170 Motherboards Q&A Thread - Page 196

post #1951 of 5772
BIOS 1102 for the Hero seems OK so I tried re-enabling Anti-Surge support and it rebooted after clicking on an email link.
Not sure what's going on...the psu is a new RMA from SeaSonic, gpu is new.
If I understood better how the Anti Surge works maybe it would be helpful?

But I only know two kinds of fans: the PWM fans with 4 pins and the DC fans with 3pins.
What are these two chassis fan connectors ?

All headers are true PWM capable. The image is misleading as it shows what happens when DC mode is set. Have asked HQ to revise the image to avoid confusion in the future.

Anti-Surge relies on SIO polling to detect rail voltages. If one has a number of polling tools on the system, erroneous readings may occur which can trigger a shutdown. Otherwise the shutdown will only occur if the PSU rail/s is/are outside ATX spec (some PSUs are).

Interesting. I do have AIDA64 running on startup, it feeds data to Aquasuite for display on the desktop, along with other data from my Aquaero's.

As for the psu itself, I guess anything is possible, although it is a brand new SeaSonic platinum 1000.

Thanks for the explanation!

Any Asus software running?

No. I can't even install most of it, only MemTweakIt.

Is on the ASUS z170i gaming pro ITX motherboard the casing of the Wi-Fi module removable? I ask this because it stands in the way of the Alpenföhn ATLAS cooler and according to photos of the back of the motherboard it seems possible.

no answer...

I GIVE UP! i buying MSI z170i

Asus = zero support

If voltage rails check out okay, then the combination of AIDA, the Aquaero, and Aquasuite polling is the cause.

Are these issues occurring with stock settings or only when OCing? Can you grab another SSD and create a minimal "test" Windows installation for troubleshooting, stress testing etc.? All those BSODs, freezes, spontaneous reboots etc. can corrupt Windows even if scan disk says nothing is wrong. Once that happens your troubleshooting integrity is going to be in a catch22 status.

Yep. Although I think the psu is OK, at this point I don't know what else it could be. So I think I'll disconnect everything and get the meter out.

No problems except when the Anti Surge is engaged in BIOS. Not going to create another Win install. thumb.gif
