    Crosshair V Formula Z USB ports keep going off and on?

    I've had this motherboard for a few weeks, and just recently the USB ports have been going off and on. I don't know if the motherboard isn't getting enough power for everything, or it's just being weird.

    Specs:

    Asus ROG Crosshair V Formula-Z
    8GB DDR3-2133 G.Skill Sniper Series
    AMD FX-8350 8 core
    AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB Ghz Edition (Gigabyte)
    500W Corsair PSU
    120GB Samsung SSD 840 Series
    Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD 7200RPM (came from my old setup, I traded someone a mac mini for a older gaming pc, I wouldn't have chose Seagate if it was my choice in the matter)
    Sony Blu-ray drive (SATA)

    Things plugged into USB:

    Razer Deathadder
    Razer Blackwidow Ultimate+the port extention for the keyboard.
    Logitech USB headset
    sometimes a 4GB flash drive
    and sometimes my micro usb charger for my phone.
    And a Belkin USB Wireless-N Wifi adapter.

    I have no idea why its doing this, it does it randomly every other hour or so, most of the time while music is playing on Spotify.

    Did you have another Power supply?
    maybe you can help replace the power supply for test again

    I thought I accidently fried my 700W, but it seems it was actually the motherboard surging from it hitting one of the grounds that was in the wrong place, luckily the motherboard is still fine, everything works and the 700W PSU has solved the problem.

    EDIT: Spoke too soon. I woke up this morning with the message on my screen that a new audio device and been plugged in. it only does that when a new USB audio device is plugged in, and there was countless messages of it. It's not the power supply. :/

    Bump, Apparently one of the USB ports might be faulty? It hasn't done it much since then, apparently only my USB wireless adapter where I had it plugged in was doing it. I changed ports and it hasnt done it since.
