well, I thought that the annoying cold boot issues would be solved with the p8z77-v - which initially seemed to work just fine - but it has started yet again. not so bad like with my previous P8P67, but still not the way it should be.
currently the latest beta bios is installed (ver 1050), but it did the same with 0906.
2500k @ 4.7 (offset +0.035), load vcore 1.4V (cooling: TRU120E, highest temps under load don´t reach 70°C)
mushkin redline 1600 MHz 2x2 GB 6-8-6-24 @ 1.65V
PLL set to 1.7V
internal PLL auto (will try enabled)
the system is stable (prime, occt, no random bsods or alike)
