P5B - Power On, Power Off, Power On Again Theory - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I lost about a second or less, can't really remember but I'd tell you, I like to see my system up and running the second I turn it on. Rather than seeing that pause which also my heart stops for a sec thinking.......will this biatch re-reboot again?

One time I turned on and I swear, I thought it took forever for that 2nd reboot to come on, I thought: schit! I'm screwed.....but it re-rebooted again. I told her: Don't do that again biatch! Scaring me like that.......what is wrong with you?

One second less but everything is silky smooth.

You know the other way to solve the boot, re-boot problem?






Ready?






Never turn it off....let it fold 24/7.

Good answer Thumper....

Well I ran accross another post on xtreme systems and found the answer I think....Here is a quote from that thread:


Quote:
Get use to the board auto shutting down on exiting bios, memtest or windows and automatically booting up again at speeds other than default 266fsb. Seems it's like Intel D975XBX Badaxe when changing boot straps. It's the boards way of ensuring the bios settings are properly set for booting. Can be quite annoying when rebooting windows when doing benchmark sessions. Actually, I got a reply from an Asus contact about the auto power down:


Quote:
This behaviour is caused by system's limitation. For over-clocking, the
internal PLL of NB would not lock on the high clock right away, so that means
system could not hold on the clock frequency immediately after reset. That's
why we add a auto-power down scheme to fix this issue. Of course, this
behaviour only occurs at over-clocking scenario.
Makes Sense....Right?
