    Zenith Extreme Hard Shutdown

    my Zenith Extreme (not alpha) has hard shutdown issue exactly like this:

    https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...-Hard-Shutdown

    I haven't installed any Aura, RGB softwares. May be Bios issue (my bios is 1701 version). I hope next Bios version can solve it.

    Is it a Zenith Extreme or Extreme Alpha, I've got the Alpha I went to the 1901 bios from the installed 0207 it came with to the 1901 and within 1/2 an hour had my first problem, I was just sitting there and about to click on Firefox and the whole system just went CLICK and shutdown, it also would not power on from the power switch, I had to pull the power plug wait a few seconds and then plug it back in.
    This happened multiple times and windows was reporting
    Error "The previous system shutdown at <time> on <date> was unexpected"
    Error "Description for event ID 56 from source Application Popup" can not be found
    Critical "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first ....."

    I went back to BIOS 0207 and the problem has not re occurred since ; however I will have to try the 1901 bios again as although I thought I had all the latest software from the ASUS site for the Zenith Extreme Alpha it appears I had one version previous to the current version and this may somehow make a difference - my thinking is that it wont however and that 1901 for the Alpha maybe a bit bjorked. You might want to revert to an earlier version for your board and see if the problem continues.

    Good luck, I know how teething problems can be.

    Mine is original Zenith Extreme and bios 1701. In bios setting I just select optimize all fans and set 1 fan run in slient mode.
    Now I still don't know the cause of the issue. I heard people complain about bios 1901 so I have not upgraded. Waiting for next bios version.

    Keep an eye on your CPU fans too.

    Keep an eye on your fans too as I said although I had the previous version of AISuite installed in the middle of a benching run it showed the CPU as being -128, the fans had stopped and the heatsink was egg frying material. None of these problems since I went back to the first bios but I will have to try again now that I have the correct version of AISuite installed and see if weirdness still ensues but if your CPU suffered the same as what mine did it may have done a thermal shutdown.
