Sounds like I need to hook up supply directly to psu but user guide offers no guidance.
Anyone give me any advice on this?
Frankly it's really a driver issue. I've only got that Sentinel message with 62.2X and 61.77. No other driver set has ever complained. Try Switching drivers.

Also, I'm not sure that you the molex connector connected. Make sure you do.
