I assembled a new system for myself and on the second day the Corsair TX 650 V2 started giving problems. My system would restart all of a sudden until I realized that the 12V rail voltage was dropping below 10V due to which the system was restarting. I got the PSU changed and was given a new TX 650 V2. It worked fine and did not have any issues for 7 days. On the 8th day while surfing the Internet, my system shut down and would not start up again. After self diagnosis I realised that the PSU fan was not working. I tried the PSU test as recommended by Corsair to identity the problem. Being a fan of Corsair products, this is the first time I am dissapointed with the TX650 V2 PSU. My older system has the older version of TX 650 and is still working like a charm. As I experienced problem with TX 650V2 and due to limited stock availability of HX 550 PSUs, I ended up getting myself a Seasonic SS-750 JS PSU which is an OEM product. Has anyone faced this issue with this board???

you should put this in the PSU section, BUT are you measuring voltages on the 12v rail with software or with digital multimeter? i recommend you goto radioshack and buy one for 10 bucks.

Anyways yes i hear the V2 uses a different maker, so it is a bit different. Maybe just buy a seasonic? or the non-TX version?

the M4Gz is a good board i have one, have you tried maybe updating your BIOS? make sure the BIOS chip is secure?

I meansured the 12V voltage using the Asus Probe software. Maybe the V2 has some issues. I have read in some forums that some Corsair PSUs have issues with Asus Mobo. Its been 2 days now using Seasonic and no issues so far. I am using the latest BIOS which came with the mobo.
