I have just bought a brand new PC with the following specs:
Intel Core i5 2500K (3,30GHz)
ASUS P8H77M-LE USB3
2x 4GB DDR3 PC1333
Nvidia GTX560Ti 1GB HDMI DirectX11
650 Watt 14cm FAN Silent
Cooltek CTK 2 Rev C
I also bought the following SSD which I installed myself:
Corsair CSSD-F120GB3-BK 120GB SSD
The problem is that after I installed everything and tried out Battlefield 3, the computer would restart automatically after a few minutes with the following error:
"Power Supply Surges detected during the previous power on.
ASUS Anti-Surge was triggered to protect system from unstable power supply unit! "
The problem only occurs after a few seconds of running Battlefield 3.
Should the PSU I have (650W) be enough for these specs? Is there a possibility that I installed the SSD incorrectly and if so would this make a difference in the overall power consumption of my PC?
Thanks for the reply.. I already tried once yesterday disabling the ASUS anti surge from bios but the pc still restarted after a few seconds of running the game. I will try again this afternoon. In the meantime I will also find out the exact model of the PSU...
Easiest way to see whats going on would be to use a program that can moniter the CPU voltages, and see if the voltages are stable or not. Could be a really shoddy PSU that simply can't function at or near its maximum capacity.
This issue has been solved. The problem was with the power supply. I had to upgrade the power supply to 750W because the graphics card was taking too much power. I still had to switch off the anti-surge setting from bios though.
I had that same problem with my newly built PC, my PC would not shut down without holding the power button, When it did power up I got the same message, "Power supply surge detected during previous power on, Asus anti surge was triggered to protect system from unstable power supply". At first i thought that my 650W PS was ustable during my previous overclock, but i corrected the problem by Resetting the CMOS (moving the jumper, or removing the battery on the Mother board)resetting the CMOS back to factory default. You can call ASUS and ask them to walk you thru resetting the CMOS procedure. My system is working normal, no messages, I overclocked it back up again, so far no problems.
