I think they are morons who don't know their product. Most of the time asking gigabyte a question is a complete excersize in futility.

The situation that you describe is normal for the DS3 that I have. When you turn on the power supply and then hit the power button, the cpu or system fan will spin and then stop for 2 seconds. The board does not power off as you describe it durying that time. It is continuing to post. I can hear my water pump continue to run and the drives start to spin up. They seem to have some issues with fan control. That is what the actual issue is. The board does not power off and then back on.

Now to address another situation that should not be confused with this one. If you set a bios option in an attempt to overclock and the post test doesn't like the option, it will SOMETIMES turn the system off and back on about 3 times to reload the default or previous bios settings. Sometimes after it does that it will continue and post at default speeds and sometimes you need to turn off the power supply and then back on to get the system to post. That can be nervewracking but it is not something that will happen during normal operations. They think they are saving us from ourselves by doing that instead of us having to use the clear cmos jumper.

Hope this helps.

But I see that the LED of status of power is go ON,OFF 1 sec and ON again.Are you sure it all about the CPU's fan? NOT the power?

Yes that is exactly what mine does. It probably has something to do with the Gigabyte bios recovery routines. Gigabyte does a lot of things under the covers to make sure you always have a good bios to post with. Maybe that is the delay to back it up. Just a guess.

One thing you can be sure of..........Gigabyte won't tell you what it is.
