Hi!
Googling I found that some users have experienced a sort of incompatibility between Corsair PSUs and gigabyte ga-z77x-up5 th.
I don't know what's the reason, maybe the motherboard bios.

Please can you suggest me a modular, silent 600W rock solid PSU for this motherboard?
I'm considering to buy a Seasonic M12II-620 Bronze - 620 Watt
Thanks in advance


I was not aware of this as an issue. Seasonic make good power supplies, I think that they might even make these particular Corsair models. You can check more information from here:

Any of the 'quality' brand names would normally be enough advice - but you may wish to probe a little deaper.
Have you seen if there was a solution from Corsair regarding this issue?

Power is power, regardless of the PSU. The motherboard has no idea what PSU your using. Unless the PSU is defective I would highly doubt any sort if incompatibility.

Most likely it's something simple that your missing. Start with the obvious things... Did you remember the CPU power header? What does the debug LED say? You have to be more specific about what exactly is happening if you want a better answer.

Thank you Adrian.
I am not deep into this issue, I just read about it yesterday. As far as I read googling, this issue is well known, and sometimes causes a "corrupted bios" error. I don't know how to fix it, but there are many useful informations about it among the youtube comments.
Apparently the culprit is the motherboard,and in my opinion it happens with the PSU over 700W. I copy and paste from the comments
"chronofusion
Have you heard anything back from gigabyte on your problem yet? did you decide to rma the board? so far my list is this" working psu's with this board= SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W SeaSonic Platinum 1000 psu xfx and Seasonic psu's Coolermaster M2 850W COOLER MASTER Silent Pro Gold Series RS800-80GAD3-US Pc Power And Cooling Silencer mk ii 950w PSU Corsair HX750 Corsair ax850 and all of which are single 12v "
hope it helps.

This is the reason I decided to ask here, because there are hundreds of working builds and I want to buy a safe alternative to the Corsair PSU
