Aside from the temp. problems I'm experiencing with the Ultra-D (see previous thread "Heat issues with new DFI" I have been experiencing other problems too. While in the BIOS my monitor all of a sudden went black. The fans were still spinning and the LED's on the board were still on, but there was no picture and my keyboard didn't respond. My first impression was an unstable OC, but while in the BIOS? I never experienced that before. I'm using the same components as before (they are in my system specs. below). I have already checked DFI Street to look for compatability issues with any of my stuff but have not found any answer yet. Any other DFI owners out there have any ideas. This is a very good board and would like to keep it, but if problems persist I may take it back to FRY's and get something else

Have you tried clearing the CMOS?

Yes. I also flashed to the most recent BIOS. The problem is still there but it happens so randomly that I can't figure out what is causing it.

you got all 4 power connectors plugged into the mobo? You update your bios to 704-2 or 623-2 yet?

I have all power connectors plugged and the most recent BIOS from DFI (dated 2005/11/14).

Edit: I think I just got a bad board. I had problems with the SATA 3 & 4 ports. I would constantly get "Error reading disk". Switched to SATA1 and that particular problem went away (I hope).

I unplugged and plugged back all the power conectors and have had no problems (I guess one of the molex plugs was loose). No random shutdowns anymore (so far). I still have temperature problems and I'm beginning to think my board has faulty sensors.
