Ugg, this cold bootup windows splash screen freeze bug is driving me crazy haha. No one else has ever experienced this? I can get around it by entering the bios on cold boot and just restarting, then everything works fine. Or I can just press pause during POST, CTR-ALT-DEL for restard and it starts fine. So weird.
Boot up voltages are fine, overclock is 100% fine in Windows, warm boots 100%. Must be one of those combination of things that are so hard to track down. Dang variables! Using BIOS 3504 now but with the ROG modified RAID OROM. Hope that isn't it.
