    My PC randomly shuts off when idle (solved)

    Should anyone come along this thread in the future the problem has been resolved. It was a faulty power supply which Seasonic has replaced. The system is rock solid now.

    My PC randomly shuts off when idle (solved)

    Thanks for the suggestion. I did check this already. I plugged directly into the outlet and the problem persisted.

    Unfortunately it's practically impossible to test if minor incremental changes effect the issue because it takes days for the problem to occur. If the problem were easily reproducible I'm sure I would have solved it by now.

    My PC randomly shuts off when idle (solved)

    Actually it was a known issue with early Ryzen builds that PSUs had trouble with the low power states. BIOSes added an option to mitigate the issue called "Power Supply Idle Control" with two options: normal and "typical" or "typical current". The second option would fix the problem. I checked...

    My PC randomly shuts off when idle (solved)

    I have disabled c-state c6 which is known to be the most problematic. Unfortunately that did not help. I have not tried disabling c-states entirely and that is not a very desirable solution. I will be trying a PSU swap soon.

    My PC randomly shuts off when idle (solved)

    Well it doesn't fix the issue but it's also not an option. I work on this machine. It performs an automated nightly backup and I need to be able to access it remotely when I am away.

    My PC randomly shuts off when idle (solved)

    I am having this problem and I'm scratching my head trying to figure it out. I run Linux on my computer. It runs without issue for days at a time. I can game, work which involves large compiles, run VMs, anything. Then I'll leave my PC and return later to find it has shut off. USB peripherals...

    After Market Cooler Triggers Fan Warning

    This mobo has the 3D UEFI BIOS. I went into advanced mode and looked through all of the options afaik. The only thing I could find related to the fan warning was a setting to completely disable it. For whatever reason that did not work. I did not see any option to set the warning threshold. If...

    After Market Cooler Triggers Fan Warning

    I installed a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo on my Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H. Obviously the fan is bigger than the stock fan and spins slower at low temps. When my desktop comes up the fan drops to about 650 RPM and my PC speaker starts beeping continuously. If I run something that utilizes the CPU and...

    Need a triple-head monitor recommendation.

    I currently have a triple-head configuration (the one on the left is connected to a Mac and the center+right are connected to my Linux desktop. The middle monitor is a Samsung 206BW which is a 20" 1680x1050 2ms display I have been quite happy with. The two on the edges are Dell 1704FPT 1280x1024...
