Fix Available For Incompatibility Between Corsair AX760i/AX860i and GIGABYTE Z87X-OC (Force)

In a forum post over at OCAU, Dino from GIGABYTE has posted a fix for the incompatibility issues concerning Corsair PSUs AX760i/AX860i and GIGABYTE Z87X-OC/OC Force. The issue typically presents itself as failure to boot up properly, or in rare cases sudden shutdown. According to Dino, both power supplies and boards conform to Intel 8 series design specifications. It appears to be a signaling compatibility issue between the motherboard and power supply that is causing booting issues. GIGABYTE has provided information on a confirmed fix. The fix involves the removal of a resistor that controls the OC Ignition sensor for "PSU On signal". What's more, GIGABYTE offers a service to apply the fix via RMA.

Although the fix would imply the OC or OC Force motherboard is at fault here; it is still unclear which part is causing this issue. Neither Corsair nor GIGABYTE is officially commenting on the subject. This issue seems to occur only with the mainstream AX line-up; the Corsair AX1200i power supply is fully compatible with both motherboards. So far, there has been no report of other brands or product lines with similar incompatibility issues.

I wonder if this could be caused by the softwave on the new models?

This doesnt impact the AX1200 (non i) does it?

omg, I waste several weeks with this issue and my AX760i
I changed 3 motherboards - Asus Z87-Pro, ASRock Z87 Extreme 6 and only after with MSI Z87-G45 GAMING this issue happened too..I decide to check PSU. And with my old Enermax Modu 82+ all fine(without power off, restart, cycle restart with red led etc..)!!!

Something has changed in that time?
