MSI P6N SLI-FI Cold boot

So I have this MSI p6n SLI motherboard, and I run a Pentium D 805 o/c'ed to 3333mhz, 2x Evga 8800GTS 640mb cards. Here's my question.. when I first fire up the system, it just sits there.. after about 5 or 6 minutes (I let it "warm up"), I shut it off, and turn it on again, and *POOF* runs fine. Has anyone ever heard of any motherboard having to "warm up" before it will boot?? I thought I had fried it before, overclocking a Core2Duo, so I let it sit for almost a year, then I get the idea to check with MSI for an RMA. Sure enough, even over 2 years old, they replaced it, but the replacement board does the exact same thing! It's nothing that will keep me from using the machine from time to time, but I wonder who else has ever seen anything like this.

I forgot to mention, the board does the same even with the CPU at stock speeds.
After you hit the power button, try hitting the reset button.
Nah, that doesn't do anything. After I hit the power button, I let it sit for about 5 minutes, hold the power button down, then turn it on again, and it will POST. It really seems like it has to "warm up".. maybe inferior capacitors or something? It's been replaced, but the replacement does the same thing as the original. I tried swapping out the Pentium D with a core2duo and I get the same thing. Just weird...
