ASUS P67 Pro +3.3 voltage spikes

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So after stress testing my system I came back and while I was browsing the web I got a pop-up alert from my ASUS monitor saying that my +3.3 voltage was abnormal, so I looked in my alert log and saw this:

[01/27/2011 at 12:22 am] +3.3V 4.080 Abnormal
[01/27/2011 at 12:23 am] +3.3V 3.376 Normal
[01/27/2011 at 12:43 am] +3.3V 4.080 Abnormal
[01/27/2011 at 12:44 am] +3.3V 3.424 Normal

So on a few occasions it spiked up to over 4v, but doesn't look like it lasted more than a few seconds. The most it could have lasted for is a minute, but when I was sitting at the computer I saw the second one at 12:43 and I just barely got to read the alert before it went away, so I know it didn't last a full minute like the log says.

Could this just be a bug in the monitoring software? I would think that if one of my voltages spiked that far above normal that the PC would shut down automatically to prevent damage...

and your trusting a free software that runs on a motherboard that costs less to make than my fluke digital multimeter to tell you this voltage? kookoo.gif

It's a bug with the monitoring software or the sensors. I'm thinking more of a software issue. I had the same issue a few times ( http://www.overclock.net/12144186-post746.html ). It alerts me then right away it goes back to normal.

A new BIOS was release for the Pro boards today http://www.overclock.net/12163239-post793.html
