Hi all,

I was playing Fallout 4 on my 5930K, GTX980 Ti SLI running on a Corsair AX860i and a Asus X99 Deluxe motherboard.

 

At some point PC shutted down, at the next boot I get this error from the BIOS.

 

Power supply surges detected during the previous power on.

ASUS Anti-surge was triggered to protect system from unstable power supply unit.

 

What's this?

What's happened to my computer?

 

It worked well for a year now.

There are other people with same hardware and heavier overclock that does not have problem

 

Other people not having this problem does not mean you can't have it. Asus antisurge is known for being a broken mess, so the best you can do is disable it.

Yes I know, "But why do I have an issue now and not 1 year ago?" :brick:

just for reference, I swapped my PSU and the problem vanished.

it seems that my AX860i lasted 1.5 years, too few for a quality PSU, this is what they say it is.

 

Too many complaints on the net about the same problem, there should be some design issue.
