I need some help here ,from someone that uses and knows very well the Sabertooth 990FX R2.0

Bought as new as i have upgraded my main rig.Along with it i have bought a FX 6300.
The rest of the configuration is as it was with the 890GPA-UD3h ,same HDD same RAM ,same video card ,same power supply and so on.
The performance is ok is smoother in games than my older P2 X4975BE at least FC 3 runs much better.

The problem is that after Memtest ,when the ESC button is pressed so the PC to restart ,the motherboard would turn itself off 90% of the cases and in some other cases the motherboard seems to be reinitializing itself from cold.In this last case it is turning off and then restarting similar to what happens in making important changes in the BIOS.
I haven o idea what the problem is The temperatures never go over 60 Celsius in any area the board is ok at finger touch ,nothing excessive.

Happened with stock 1708 BIOS and with the newer one.
It seems to be shuting-off almost for sure after some hours of MEMTEST ,i mean after 3 hours it will shut off for sure instaad of restart.No errors will show up in Memtest also and Windows will work just fine as well afterwards.
It s like the ESC key in Mmetest 4.10/4.2 is some kind of shut down button smile.gif


This shut off also happened once after i have run for maybe 40 minutes a full Checkdisk under Windows 7.I mean i made the check ,then tried to restart ,the OS somehow closed strange ,something hanged ,but W7 managed to turn itself off ok ,then at restart it simply shut down instead of reinitializing.

So what is the problem.Stock settings or overclocked or some current and thermal features relaxed it still happens.

Should i send it back or it s a known bug of some sort with some workaround.
