Yes, thats my concern and thats actually whats bothering me. It runs smoothly after a few restarts(blank screen). What exactly happened this morning: I turned on the AVR, turned on the monitor, turned on the PC, pc runs, after 10 seconds, it will turn off on its own, after 3 seconds, it will turn back on, will report Overclock fail press F1. I pressed F1, everything is normal, exit BIOS, load Windows, checked the voltages, everything is normal. The OC config was still on. I restarted the pc via windows, loaded normally after that. I shut it down, turned it back on, it loads fine. BUT when I turn everything off, pull every plug, waited for say 10 mins. Plugged in every wire, turned on the pc, then the OC fail message happens again, and If i do the exact same thing i mentioned above, it will all be replicated.

So in short. Cold boot up screws my pc.

Your computer is restarting itself because it detects a fault with the BIOS settings & is tryign to correct it. I think F1 loads stock settings. You could do re-do the overclock with Asus Auto Tuning & check it to be sure. Also, your power options in the BIOS might be off.

EDIT: Is quick boot or some crap enabled on your BIOS? If so, turn it off. Oh, & you are plugged into a surge protector right?


Thank you for your effort, I really appreciate it. I dont think its my mobo because this is brand new, the PSU is not however. When I press F1, im not sure if it loads the stock settings, but the OC settings are still there. Ill give it a shot later and have the BIOS on and turn off quick boot, i still need more details on how to fix this. Yes im using an AVR/surge protector on all my pc equipments.

So I got it working now. I defaulted everything back and manually OCed it. I got up to 4.312ghz and everything is rock solid, the cold boot up problem went away. All the voltages are reading right and the temps are smooth. I could probably hit the 4.5ghz mark easily but for now, this is fine with me.

I guess everyone is right saying that the Asus AI Suite II auto tune is a piece of crap.

There are so many "brand new" been broken already.
It's called faulty manufacturing process, damage on shipping, etc.
It happens a lot than you think...

Glad to hear it. See, I told you that Auto-tuning, whether for overclocking or for singing is absolute crap.
