    Wazza300, yes by PDU I mean: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi..._protector.jpg (I didn't know its english name)

    Lsdmeasap, thank you for your comprehensive response.
    1) Today morning I switched computer on (yesterday I switched it off by system "shut down"). I had my surge protector off.
    During cold boot I noticed 1 "restart" (fans started, stopped and started again).

    2) I'll try to sell this memory and I'll buy 1.65V ones as you suggest. For now I changed DRAM settings as follow:

    Ch-C Address VRef. ................. 0.750v [AUTO]
    3) In my AC Back Function I have:
    - Soft-off
    - Full-On
    - Memory
    I have there "Soft off" all the time.
    To be sure - "Instant off" is the same as "Soft off", am I right? :)

    4) I used hard-power-off becouse I hadn't got system installed yet (I'm unable to install Win7x64 - I'm still looking for solution for (probably) SATA drivers problem. Yesterday I installed Win7x86 for testing purpouse).

    I've just noticed that if I use system-shut-down - "clear cmos" led-button turns off immediately. If I use hard-power-off - "clear cmos" led-button stay hightlighted (and I have boot problems then).
    Is it OK?

    Should I be able to boot without problems after hard-power-off/"power loss"?
    I've simmulated "power loss" by switching my PSU off. Now I'm unable to start my computer (led-button stay hightlighted when PSU is on, regardless of whether the computer is turned on).

    if the pc is still plugged into the power socket/wall and its turned on at the wall but not on the pc,then the blue cmos light will stay on,this is normal and when you press front panel power switch it should start and boot up,only when you unplug the pc at the wall the blue cmos light will go out

    Do you have memory multiplier x10 set, and x24 uncore set?

    If so please lower your uncore to 20-22, it will be more stable for you (x20 Uncore would be the norm for x10 memory multi).

    Soft-Off by PWR-BTTN:
    Instant-Off - Press the power button and then the system will be turned off instantly. (Default)
    Delay 4 Sec. - Press and hold the power button for 4 seconds to turn off the system. If the power button is pressed for less than 4 seconds, the system will enter suspend mode.

    I think you will be fine, once you have a system installed and stop using your power strip to shut off the computer.

    Today I replaced this motherboard (rev 1.0) - I got new one (rev 2.0).

    Now I have worse problem - I can't even turn on the computer. It's rebooting, rebooting, rebooting...
    I've tried clearing BIOS - without success. I've checked all connections.

    Could you give me some advice?

    My config:
    - intel core i7 950 3,06 Ghz
    - GA-X58A-UD3R rev 1
    - Patriot DDR3 2x2GB 1600 PGS34G1600ELK
    - Gigabyte GTX460 1GB
    - Samsung 1TB
    - be quiet Straight Power 680W

    Lsdmeasap, No bent CPU socket pins - I'm looking at it right now.

    Wazza300, ram is in white slots, all power cables checked, mb battery checked and put back in. I haven't got any other psu, but mine was working with previous mobo.

    edit: It's just started! First try - rebooting loop, second - everything seems to be OK. Tomorrow I'm going to replace memories (I'm going to take Kingstone - model from supported momories list). I'll raport results :)

    Can you post pics of the socket just to be sure? If you do please use no flash, macro setting, in a well lit room with pics from several angles.

    We know it's not CPU compatibility as the initial BIOS is compatible with 950, so it's not that for sure.

    Have you tried an extended Clear CMOS for 10+ minutes with PSU Drained and not plugged in, battery removed, and then started the system with only one stick of memory?

    Also get the board out of your case, and OFF the motherboard tray, just to be sure there are no shorts.

    Hi @Lsdmeasap,
    You might remember me from another thread?? Got replacement UD3r Rev 1.0 Mobo from Gigabyte and had much the same problems with reboots and hanging apps but now have back onboard LAN and KB during boot! Decided to change timings/voltage for RAM cos post reports CPU correct freq but RAM 1066Mhz instead of 1600Mhz. When I went to MIT tweaker I found that CPU was 3.2Gbz (24X) instead of the reported (Win and post) 3.06Gbz (23X)? So I reset CPU to 23X and the RAM to 12X (1600Mhz). and rebooted! Lo and behold first perfect boot on replacement board. Only tried this once so far so not confirmed as a problem fixer.
    When I do chance reboot I will be resetting the RAM timing and voltages as I think it reported voltage as 1.5V instead of specification voltage 1.65V. That info I saw in previous posts.
    If you could tell me (screen shots maybe) exactly which settings to adjust in MIT tweaker I would appreciate it.
    Items in question are
    Intel i7 950 CPU
    Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600 Mhz (KNX1600C9D3K2/4GX) 9-9-9-27 1.65V
    Thanks

    Question Re: GA-X58A-UD3R boot problem

    Can I also add that my CPU & socket only has pads not pins. So what can you bend?
    Can I also ask why the BIOS (F6) only reports true Freq of CPU in MIT tweaker?
    Cheers
