Power Off/On During Boot

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Just finished building a new PC:

  • ASUS P8Z68-V PRO REV3
  • i7 2600K (not overclocked yet)
  • 16GB (4X4) Corsair Vengeance
  • EVGA GTX 580 Classified Ultra 3GB (Core Clock 900MHz, Shader Clock 1800MHz, Memory Clock 4212MHz)
  • Boot Drive: Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSD120GB
  • Storage Drive#1: WD Cavier Black 1 TB, SATA Rev 3 (6GB/S)
  • Storage Drive#2: Segate 500 GB (SATA (3GB/s)
  • Two Optical Drives: 1 DVD read/write, 1 DVD read-only
  • Internal USB Card Reader
  • OCZ ZX Series 1250W PSU (80-Plus Gold, Full Modular)
  • CM Storm Trooper Enclosure

It's been up and running for about a week and a half, but yesterday a boot issue developed that I've never seen before. After I press the power button, before I receive the POST Beep/Screen, the power goes completely dark for 2 to 3 seconds (seems like an hour), and then it powers back up again and completes the boot normally. It has never failed to finish booting, I just get the little power-down moment of intense terror and trauma. It happens frequently, but not every time (maybe 7 or 8 out of 10?).

I initially overclocked the CPU to 4.6GHz with core voltage set to 1.3V and it was stable (ran Prime95 for a little over an hour), but I was getting temperatures in the high 70's, and I received a pop-up notice from somewhere (?) telling me the motherboard was at 0V??). I had no idea what that meant, so I reset everything, and planned to try again another time.

The boot problem didn't start right away after this. It booted normally for 5 or 6 days afterward, and only started this problem yesterday.

Any ideas?

Someone else has this exact same issue a month ago.
