I have an issue with my MVE motherboard. (or might be my PSU, not sure yet)
system specs: ASUS Maximus V Extreme, Intel i7 3770K, 8GB(2x4GB) Corsair Dominator Platinum (1866mhz), ASUS GTX680 DC2T. Nothing is OCed, even the memory is running at 1333mhz. Corsair AX1200 PSU (I know its oversized "a bit", I'm aiming for SLI later)
OS: Win7 Ultimate x64
My problem is that my pc occasionally powers down all of a sudden, and when it comes back on a few seconds later I get the message:
"Power supply surges detected during the previous power on.
ASUS Anti-Surge was triggered to protect system from unstable power supply unit!"
This happens during games sometimes but usually just web browsing not even during watching 1080p+ streams or playing flash games or anything that would cause even a slight load on this system. It happened once browsing facebook.....
I've set up Aida to monitor and log voltages, but I havent find anything interesting in the logs. (Aida might have just missed it since the whole system just shuts down in the blink of an eye and it didn't have time to log or something)
As I remember there was a time when I got a message from the Ai Suite that one of the voltages +3.3 +5 or +12 is higher than is should be. Can't remember which one (might be +3.3 but not entirely sure) and how much higher it was but I've seen it only once and even then the system went on just fine and by the time I got to the Ai Suite voltage monitor everything was back at normal. (This was the time I set up the Aida voltage monitoring)
The problem is that I can't reproduce the issue, it just happens once in a while.
I've tried stress testing with the latest 3D Mark yesterday with the Fire Strike test on extreme setting looped. It went for 2 hrs and nothing happened, so I guess its not related to system load.
Does anyone have any idea what might be causing the issue or how to find out for sure what is causing it exactly?
Oh and one other thing: The system should be surge protected from the power outlet by this: http://www.apc.com/resource/include/...sku=pf8vnt3-gr
Also last time's logs:
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks guys. Even for just reading it... I know its long, but I wanted to give all the details.
