How bad are these ?

So I found out that the BSOD named Kernel Power Event 43 could be a faulty PSU. Altho my PSU is a high quality 90+ 600W with Jappanese Cappacitors Nippon Chemi-Con, Cool MOS transistors, 50A on the +12V single rail... all nice and good. But the results I got are looking weird for me, since I don't know what I should see. Help is required for sure. I posted this on the Overclocking section because I guess you guys would know something about a good PSU values.
So yeah... please tell me they're not so bad. I don't feel like having problems with the PSU right now...

  1. Your 12 volt supply is a little lower than it should be. It's still within the ATX specification so it shouldn't cause problems, just keep an eye on it.

    The droop on the Vcore though is a bit higher than I would expect. It's dropping approximately .1 volt under load with the peak-to-peak swing almost .3 volts, that's pretty high. This may indicate a problem with the voltage regulators on the motherboard. They may be low quality, or are showing signs of age.
  2. The motherboard is pretty much ~5 months old, so I guess bad quality, atlho most people said this was the best choise for the money. Builded the computer in around February, and I only started to get this BSODs in late June. Well, F* me.

    Asus makes great motherboards but even they have the odd lemon.

    If you haven't done so already, update the motherboard firmware (BIOS/UEFI) to the latest revision. Also, increase the load line calibration in the system settings if your motherboard supports it.

    I have the latest UEFI... For now I'll look into the Load Line Calibration thingy if I find it. Later after I'm done with exams, I'll send the motherboard back in waranty, if I can't solve the problem until.

    Check out the Asus forums as well. Their engineers are known to address questions like this from time to time.
  6. I did the "tweaks" you said and... well, the V-core voltage got way more stable. And it didn't BSOD anymore, for now at least. So you were right, it's something from there. +overheat... expected with stock CPU in summer. I'll change it one day. I did a topic on the Asus forums and they didn't answer yet. I feel like it's a problem that could rather be more easy to answer if you see and test it, not by some pictures over the internet. So it's hard for people to help me but I appreciate it.

    That is much better than before. Increasing LLC will cause it to run a bit warmer due to an increase in the average voltage over the same logical load but if it stops the BSoDs who cares right?
