Hi guys, this problem has been driving me crazy for the past month. Built a new pc last month:
Asus P8H61-M-LE USB3
8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 RAM
Kingston SSD 64GB
320 GB WD Blue
Corsair HX620 PSU
All parts are new except: SSD, HDD, and PSU.
PC would reboot itself randomly and the event viewer says kernel-power event 41 task 63.
My biggest hunch is the PSU because there was one time just after I built the PC, it would not turn on when power button was pressed. MOBO status light was lit. Tried shorting out the actual power pins on the MOBO but still did not turn it on. It would also sometimes turn on then off then on again by itself.
Also whenever I'm in CMOS setup, the various voltages seem to be unstable, it would go up and down by +/- .002 or something like that.
Because of those two points plus the PSU is already used and old (was prev used in a server which ran 24/7) I reckon it's the PSU. But before I go buying a new PSU, I thought I'd get your opinions.
Thanks very much in advance. Sorry if I missed some information or if I sound really nooby. Cheers!
