Tell me about this double boot issue, when, what happens?

Ok, now I don't get the double boot issue any more. WTH. Anyway, from what I've understood is that the computer seems to boot, where the keyboard works and so on but does not display anything on the screen, so you have to restart it to actually make it display something on the screen.
Or is that a completely separate issue?

So I'm not sure what to believe on my RAM speed.

CPUZ and bios both show my ram to be running DDR3 1600, but when I click the SPD tab on CPUZ, it shows my ram as having a max bandwidth of PC3-10700 (667mhz). Is this right?

The SPD tab in CPU-Z shows you the information stored on your memory. The memory tab shows you your current speeds.

ok, stupid question...

When overclocking the CPU, am I supposed to be looking at the "target CPU speed" in red?

If so, it is reading (if I remember as I am at work) 4824mhz with just the press of the extreme button.

It cannot be this simple... I haven't stressed it yet and I am still on stock air. I can't imagine this speed on stock cooling will be very stable at all.

Sandy Bridge overclocking is stupidly easy. Lots of them don't even need a VCore boost to hit 4.6 GHz. Mine only does ~4.8 GHz on 1.42v though

After restarting automatically, it will try to boot again, but again I will have absolutely nothing on my screen but this time I have to hold my power button to force a shut down. After that, I can turn it back on and it boots normally, but the whole process will repeat next time I try to boot.

Anyone have any suggestions?

On to some other things...
I disabled my Marvell SATA controller to avoid the whole "No Hard Disk Detected" double post junk, but I was still seeing the ASUS splash screen twice. The only way I have found around this is to also disable the JMB SATA controller, but I'm assuming this will kill my eSATA ports. It greatly improves my boot time and I don't have any eSATA devices currently connected, but it's a pet peeve of mine to have disabled ports because I will probably forget I did it later and wonder why my device isn't working. Has anyone else found a way around the second splash screen?

So, I've been reading a lot of threads here lately with my new build (first in about 10 years) and finally decided to register and start contributing. So here's my first post with some general info about what I've done and a couple questions.

I'm running the 2600k on the P8P67 Pro and using 2x4gb of G. Skill ripjaws 1600 RAM (1.6v CL7). My very first boot I had no issues, obviously, as it was stock setting and bios set the memory to 1333 by default. First thing I did was update bios to the beta 1053 version from a usb drive (quite easy, btw) and restart. I chose to manually OC the turbo to 4.5ghz and set manual cpu voltage to 1.275 to start out. I also bumped memory up to 1600mhz and set it at 1.6v. After a restart, it automatically set the timings correctly to 7-8-7-24.

I've disabled the Marvell controller as I only have 2x SATA 6gb/s drives (my crucial SSD & my WD storage HDD) and they're connected through the onboard intel SATA III controller. The optical is just hooked up to the standard SATA port. (This build, for the first one I've done in a long time, was very easy and pretty fun in the corsair 600t, by the way!)

Anyway... windows 7 was installed along with all the updated drivers and everything has been running pretty well. Now my questions:

1) I also have been having cold boot issues. The DRAM red light stays lit. Twice now I've just pressed the MemOK! button till restart and just gone into BIOS and changed the speed back to 1600mhz and rebooted fine. I've read the CMOS clearing procedure and people have said that this fixes it... I want to clarify though, were these people unable to boot at all (IE, they weren't using the MemOK! button) and they still can't set memory to 1600mhz without cold boot problems OR does the CMOS reset procedure actually allow me to set to 1600mhz and leave it there with no more cold boot problems?

2) I left my system running prime95 torture test last night (the blend one that says "produces max heat") running the specs I mentioned above (4.5ghz @ 1.275v). I haven't messed with any of the other voltage options. My system was still stable & running this morning. The temps as noted by Real Temp as well as HWMonitor were 60, 65, 62, 62 current. The MAX it hit was 68C on the second core and this was about 30m after I started running the test.
Does that seem high to you for only 1.275v? Ambient in the room was about 23C and this was with the Scythe Mugen 2 rev B (Not top of the line, but still pretty good... despite it's pain in the butt mounting design.) I used Arctic MX-4 instead of the included compound if that matters and the cooler is on there pretty tight as far as my limited experience can tell. I'm using the included fan set up with the heatpipes horizontally and the fan over the RAM blowing towards the back of the case. I also have the cpu fan set to run 100% all the time.

2b) Are there any voltage options that I should change that might bring temps down? I admit I haven't played with the bios much yet, but my goal was to get 4.8ghz for 24/7 use in the low 1.3v range and stay mid 60s max for temp, but if I'm already hitting 68c, I don't want to push it much further (until more solid safe data is out there!).

3) This is my first SSD. It's one of the newer Crucials (the c300 128gb SATA III) and from what I understand, that paired with Windows 7 should take care of itself for the most part. What other options should I enable / disable to max it's performance? I turned off indexing already and Windows already had it detected as an SSD and had not turned on defrag scheduler. I tried to do some searching, but most of what I found was for older SSDs and / or was contradicting.

Well, sorry for the long winded post, but this has been by far one of the most informative sites I've found and I just wanted add my bit and see if anyone had any more answers for me. Thanks guys!

I'm having an a an issue with this board not allowing my to setup my RAID 0. I have 2 1TB WD 6.0gbps blacks that are hooked up to the 2 6.0 gbps Sata ports on the board. I have RAID MODE set under SATA Configuration but when i boot and try to press <crtl> + <i> during POST it does nothing. Anyone else getting this? I have tried this with the Marvel Controller enabled and disabled.
