i am on i5-2500k with the Asus P8P67 Pro board.

Concern is, when i boot the computer up it will run for 2 seconds..then cuts off then turns back on and everything runs fine, It started to do this recently.. does anyone else have this problem?

It's probably the motherboard not liking your memory. I would manually set the memory to 1333Mhz and put in the timings for whatever your sticks are rated at. I know MSI boards had this problem, but I haven't seen it on Asus boards. You can also make sure your command rate is set to 2T instead of Auto.

ninja.gif edit: IIRC the fix (after finding it was a memory timing/speed issue) was to set the memory to XMP values (in your case 1600 most likely) and also manually setting the timings.

i see, well it isnt a very good idea for an SSD to get into sleep mode anyway, due the huge amount of bites it has to write away with everytime sleep, so that should be disabled, besides giving garbage collection (for RIAD modes) the chance to do its work in idle time (and TRIM for non RAID's). Also, prefetch/superfetch, pagefile (if enough RAM onboard), search indexing, defrag, sys restore: ALL disable; just automate one or two daily system images with backup on an external HD and you're safe, btw enable write caching and turn off write cache buffer flushing, and live a happy/speedy SSD life *wink*

I absolutely agree with you, but there are many users out there that like the power savings of using sleep/hibernate/hybrid sleep modes. You would be amazed how many people out there still defrag SSD's. wink.gif

I personally cannot wait for SSD prices to come down even more (dollar per GB) so I can have a nice big game drive. Most folks say that there isn't a noticeable difference between having a game on your SSD or a physical drive, but I love the difference in load times/drawing times in the games I play. biggrin.gif

most of the problems with SSDs are sandforce based. most major manufacturers have released firmware updates to mitigate most problems at this point.

Drop outs, poor performance, BSODS, hitching, and temporary Freezes are the most common complaints.

sleep on cougar point is just a mess, even if your using simple hardware the turbo 2.0 and PLL overvolt cause all kinds of issues.

Hotplug isn't limited to SSDs, it works on any type of SATA drives, mechanical too.

There's a random "[/LIST]" in the P8P67 Deluxe section.

I've been too lazy to update anything. Still on 12xx BIOS and release drivers.

The fix for this behavior on my P67 Sabertooth was to enable "power on by pcie" in the bios power management settings....

since the Intel sata 3G ports are faulty, i have the cdrom on a Marvel 6G port,
i think i read somewhere it shouldnt work, but thats nonsens.

Have you had any problem with your CD drive on the marvel, as in.. it has a mind of its own? I had a DVD-RW drive attached at one point to the marvel controller. If I opened the disk... it would immediately close itself. You had to be quick to get a disk in. Once in, everything worked fine. Also, it couldn't be used for recording, as the optical drive always showed as busy, even when empty.

Moved by backup HDD to the marvel, and the DVD-RW onto Intel. No more problems with the drive.

Right, but we were talking about SSD technology, so I left mechanical drives out of the equation. smile.gif
