EVGA FTW3 takes 3 (sometimes 4) attempts to boot after system off for several hours.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
On cold start attempt #1 it doesn't even begin to boot and I get mobo code Fb

on the next attempt system begins to boot then hangs after driver load and I get mobo codes 36, 37, 38 and 39

3rd attempt same as #1 but mobo code is 25

4th attempt it boots in 30 seconds.

i7 920 @ 4.4 stable on LinX, OCCT, IBT, and p95
EVGA FTW3
Corsair H100
Corsair Vengeance 24gb DDR3

Any ideas?

Bent socket pin? Bad memory slot? That'd be my guess... Possible something shorting our the board....?

All of the memory slots used recognize all of the memory and I inspected the socket pins yesterday, thanks for the speedy reply.

Could it be my voltages? I'm stable, but with fairly high voltages.

Dropped the OC down to 4.2 and the voltages down but lost stability so I'll work on stability then make another attempt with the cold starts.

Dropped the OC down to 1.3v and 195x20 ... I think I'm beginning to narrow it down to a GPU issue
