Hi pc:
12900K with NZXT KRAKEN X73
RTX 3090 Ti Gigabyte Gaming
Aorus Z690 Elite DDR4 bios F5
Seasonic Px 1300W Platinum Prime

I went from Aorus Z490 and 10850K to 12900K and Aorus Z690 Elite DDR4. Windows 10 is installed on SSD from 10850K build.When new pc booted i enabled in GEAR 1 XMP ( 3600 mhz ). Then i rebooted to UEFI again without issues.

Then i reboot pc again and when windows 10 was loading first time ,pc shutts off ( heard psu click ) and turns back on again. And second time it booted to Windows 10 normally.
Is my pc fine?

Why pc shuts off ( OFF heard psu click) and turns back again ,when windows 10 was configuring first time on new platform ? Pc shuts down and boot itself up. Not typical reboot.
It happened before Windows 10 boot <%>Getting devices ready.

But why it shutdown ( i heard a click from psu ) and then reboot itself?comes back automatically

Windows 10 working now normally no issues , but just asking about that. Thank you so much my friends.

Someone on geforce.com said that i must rma psu. I am worried. So what now?



"its the psu buddy, i told you it'd start to behave like this ages ago. your psu cannot handle the startup currents without registering an overload event."

What is registered overload event?

Can you replicate the event without the GPU? If you can, it is unlikely to the PSU power, but can be PSU compatibility (that too seems unlikely as this is a relatively new PSU).
Also if it is, as suggested a power rush issue, would it also not affect when starting a 3D intensive game? (if you've tried one)

When i moved from 9700k to 12700k i couldnt get my AX860 to work (even without discrete GPU which is a 3090).

Windows does reboot itself several times during the initial installation process. (updating drivers, updating/reconfiguring windows, etc) You may have just witnessed/heard one.
Hey guys sorry for late reply,was working. I tested few games,windows 10 desktop no shutdowns or something. I will test more but now i think its fine. If during game i will be have reboot i will rma for sure.
Did you get a reliable UPS like I told you to in your last thread?

I mean you were having power surges in your shanty.
You guys always keep falling into the same trap. Seriously, even a duma has learnt by now.
