ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe G3 inconsistent boots

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey forums!

Got some strange stability problems with this rig.
When it's been turned off for a while, let's say the night over, it will almost always take 2-3 attempts to get it going.
Once it's up and running, it'll stay rock solid forever. Runs Prime95 and Linx for hours on end!

Sometimes it'll turn on, stay on for 10-15seconds, no post. Then turn itself off, then ON again and post.
It'll reach the Win7 loading screen, then freeze up.
At this point I can usually keep the power button pressed to turn it off (reset button is unresponsive), then turn it back on again and it will boot!

All these "hard" crashes seem to affect the intel onboard RAID controller aswell, at it almost certainly starts rebuilding my RAID1 array on two 1TB discs, which takes forever frown.gif

Any ideas?

Nothing?

I have the same board, and the same thing happens to me. It'll restart like 3 times before it finally posts, but mine never restarts when it reached the Windows loading screen. Sometimes I'll get an error saying that my overclock failed, but when the computer boots up everything is stable.

Ah well, atleast I'm not the only one then..
Updated the BIOS a few days ago, that certainly did not help either, if anything it's become unstable at 5GHz now frown.gif

Sounds unstable. I have the same board, and when I had an unstable OC it would do that. Other than that I disabled the OPROM prompts for the SATA controller and LAN, and that got rid of the double boot problems and sped up post times.
