Exclamation Voltage Warnings

I just dropped a bundle on a ground up new build, and I have been seeing warnings at least once a day about one voltage or another being off, usually too low, sometimes seriously low.

This is making me extremely nervous and I am switching to my old system and plan to replace the power supply.

Am I on the right track or should I be looking elsewhere?

Hardware :

ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2
FX - 8350
XFX R9 290A EDFD
G-Skill 16GB 4*4 2133
ADATA 256GB SSD / WD 500GB HDD
EVGA 75OW SUPERNOVA
SAMSUNG ODD

No overclocking the first few day it was up but warnings started on 2nd day of use.

Re: Voltage Warnings

I thought you were OCing it? Have you been getting these warnings @stock?

Thumbs up Re: Voltage Warnings

I was getting minor warnings and would use the ASUS AI Suite to see what message was and check the existing conditions and everything would be back to normal.

At first I shrugged it off, rather foolish in hindsight, and the system never had any real issues.

I slowly started with the tweaking as I gained more experience with the bios and the AI Suite, my first Asus motherbord and UEFI Bios. The occasional warnings continued so as I said, I pulled the plug.

The system has a new Corsair 850W PSU and also a H110i and is error free and running cool and whisper quiet.

I upgraded the cooler as someone mentioned I would be able to OC easier and farther, (habibjp ). I guess it's time to see what this thing can do

Yes, I had OCed it at various levels as I said in our direct messages. I don't know why I had not mentioned the voltage problems, probably cause I was more interested in bragging about my new toy.

The warnings occurred at random regardless of system settings or current activity.

Updadate on errors and more info.

The error messages returned to dismay. Not only voltage errors but temp and fan speed warnings. But they are all false errors. Multiple times fan speeds of 0 or 2 RPM were reported and I can see them turning at what appears to be normal speed. Motherboard temps of 120 and 119 C. get reported and seconds later when I check the temp in the AI Suite or Corsair Link they are normal. I worked in commercial HVAC and a temp change of 90 C. in that short time is impossible in this situation.

I contacted Asus, they initially suggested flashing the BIOS, been there done that, several times. No change.

I suggested, and the rep agreed, to my surprise, the AI Suite may be the culprit. He advised to uninstall it and gave a link to download a "clean" copy. I uninstalled it but have yet to re-install the AI Suite.

Without the ability to easily monitor the system I have abstained from any serious tweaking except for the memory and hyper transport, they are set at full designed capacity and the CPU @ 4.2 GHz.

Re: Voltage Warnings

You can use Speedfan or Speccy to monitor temps. Speedfan will find every available sensor in your system, often resulting in an overabundance of temp/voltage readouts with which it isn't always clear what's what. Speccy gives you extensive hardware info with temps on GPU, CPU, HDDs, etc.

Have you read an OC guide specifically for your CPU? Maxing the RAM and HT alone doesn't sound very safe. Standard OC procedure: CPU first, then RAM, then everything else. All at the lowest voltages possible w/o the system becoming unstable.
