Believe it or not I'm still on BIOS 1.4. I can take it all the way to 2700, and it seems to boot just fine. After a drained board & PSU, however, I do have to push the power button twice. It seems the first time I push it, it's charging the caps. It does take a while for the caps to become fully discharged though. You have to push and hold the power button for like 2 minutes.
Here's what I get: on a cold boot, when the board gets below 18C, it loads all the way to windows and as it's loading the startup stuff it freezes up. Restart, no problem after that; I've left this thing on for several days and not once did it lock up again.
It seems pretty consistent that it happens on a cold boot. Although, it hasn't done it lately
. Probably because it has been warmer.
