Memory Voltage not in recommended range?

I installed two fans into my tower today: a Cooler Master 200mm silent fan and a Corsair 120mm fan that comes with the H100i, everything had been running fine up until about an hour later.

My 200mm fan stops running, while the 120mm is still working and my Corsair link software indicates an error of "Memory Voltage out of Recommended Range 0.300v". Is this saying that my PSU does not support the additional fans on top of my current setup?

i7-3770k
Intel DZ77GA
6gb Ram
Asus GeForce 550ti OC
H100i cooling system

and I have a HAF XB case, so 2 120mm fans pulling air into the radiator, and a 200mm fan at the top of the case, and an additional 120mm fan at the back of the case.

All of this is on a Enermax 500W PSU.

Do I need a new PSU immediately?

This is probably a bug with the Corsair Link software. If the memory voltage was out of range by that much, your PC would freeze up or shut off

How would I go about fixing this? Or turning my fan back on for that matter? Restarting the PC?

My intel desktop utilities shows my Memory Voltage as 0.730v.

That's definitely not right. See if there's a firmware update for your motherboard.

I just updated my mobo to the latest.

There was no change and in addition the fan no longer turns on.

The memory voltage however, did go up to 0.750v.

As it stands, my voltages are :
+12.0v = 12.160v,
+5.0v = 5.160v,
+3.3v = 3.400 v,
Memory Voltage 0.750v,
Processor Core Voltage = 0.880,
PCH Core Voltage 1.040v,
+3.3v standby = 3.310v

New PSU?

No your PSU is fine. This is a problem with the reporting on your motherboard
