Hi,

I know i have seen a bunch of similar threads, but it seemed like the most common answer was that the PSU was inherently crappy. In this case, i know i have a highly rated power supply; so i won't rule it out entirely but i am uncertain that it would start failing this quickly.

This problem just started happening. The computer will crash and then reboot, display the error message and then go into the BIOS.

The BIOS is showing that all the voltages are within the acceptable range and i have run windows mem diagnostic tool with no errors.

So, my question is: What else can I do to troubleshoot this? A Friend suggested testing the outlet i'm using, but i am using a surge protector, could the outlet still be the culprit.

I have seen similar threads where the suggestions were that the problem could be a tossup between the mobo and the psu. How could I narrow it down; i really hope i don't need RMA the mobo... :( 

Could the heat have anything to do with it? Its been pretty hot and my office is in the attic. Would it display that error, if it was the heat? My cpu temp has not gone past 40 deg. Celsius when I have checked it in the BIOS.


Here are my system specs:

CPU: i5 4670k
Mobo: Asus z87-Plus
PSU: Silent Pro 800w gold
