ASUS motherboard activating Anti-Surge Protection from the power supply
I just built my computer right around 6 months ago. It ran fine with no issues until just about a week ago. In one day the Anti-Surge kicked on 3 times. After the first incident i was watching my voltages in and there was no spike or sudden drop.
Just today it's activated twice already. It always seems to be when I'm doing something with a game. It's happened on games from my SSD and HDD, and I don't have anything overclocked.
I could turn off the surge protection but to just start out of the blue is pretty strange to me.
Any help would be wonderful.
(EDIT) Here's the bulid:

New motherboard windows not activated
I had windows 10 education from my college. I changed my mobo and now it's telling me to activate windows. Since I graduated in June and the online portal to get this windows edition has been decommissioned, not really an option to just get another key. I got my Microsoft account and the only device listed is THE ONE IM USING. Not really interested in shelling out $130 for windows, anyone knows of a fix?
Already contacted microsoft support and they basically told me to f myself
