Bothersome MB alarm during render

PostSun Mar 19, 2017 8:11 pm

Hey all. Having an annoyance wuth a frankenstein build. When I render a file my alarm beeps during the entire render. My temperatures look good and the cpu isn't over clocked. Where should I be looking to see what's triggering the alarm. The renders are short DNXHR 444 tests and come out fine.

Likely an overall brownout pulling down the computer's power supply. When Resolve commits to a render, all resources come on line, all drives spin. If you had an external UPS battery backup, it would be chirping, too. I often see draws that would trip the service breaker on a household mains supply.

That's probably it. I have a 1000w PSU. I'll replace it and test. The UPS was fine, but a 1200w may test that.
