    could be your hdd is fuxx0r'd from all the crashes etc.. did you try unplugging it?
    (if you do so please don't leave any cables sticking in only the controller ports)

    there's other stuff in Bioses than only processor compatibility, i'd go for F11
    2.2v is quite lot overvoltage no? standard is 1.85v
    how's everything running under 'regular' settings?

    i'm running my corsair at the high defaults (which state 2.1v together with the 4-4-4-12) but i didn't have to increase the voltage;
    it's on auto resulting in something between 1.87~1.89v

    Thanks

    *EDIT*

    Found it, thanks
    Ahh, well it seems that isnt the cool thing to do, or not the way he wants to be contacted. I mailed yesterday and no answer by today.

    I know it is only a day, but it is not like I am asking for assistance troubleshooting or anything, just a link and some info.

    Well, I wait more before I get concerned I suppose. If you see this Janus, Please Pm me or see my email

    Thanks

    Tried unplugging my hard disc, makes no difference (thanks anyway).

    ive noticed that its only when I oc, by any amount I have an E2180 which I bought specifically to oc and i bought this board because i read about how well it ocs. I can get the CPU to 2.8 easily, havnt tried any higher yet because of this problem. Runs extremely stable at any overclock ive tried so far, while its running. I have ocz platinum rev2 800mhz 6400, an ocz stealthxstream 600watt (could this be the problem). The problem just seems to happen when i switch off the mains and leave it for about half an hour after its shut down, will not post goes into the cycle and randomly boots after reverting to stock settings. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    So when everything is at std then all is well.

    My father in law had a very similar problem that I helped him resolve by swapping his Crucial memory with my Geil, to test it out. Having resolved it he then bought some Geil memory like mine and all is well. His system was not overclocked though when the problem, like yours, was happening.

    Strange thing was the Crucial memory tested out fine in another motherboard but just did not work (regardless of voltage or timings) in his.

    When you have written The problem just seems to happen when i switch off the mains why do you do that and not just switch off at the power button on your case..?

    From reading your post it could suggest that your settings are causing or contributing to the problem when you are overclocking.

    Mine will only revert to std settings when I have set something beyond what the hardware can support, a sort of safety feature.

    Like many P35-DS4 owners I followed this thread as a lurker, thanking my lucky stars that my board works perfectly ---- until yesterday. Yesterday, with absolutely no changes, my board began to reboot and lose it's settings. It simply would not boot at the settings that it had been using for 2 months. Some extensive Googling led me to a proposed fix. By changing the (G)MCH voltage from "Normal" to "+.1", I got my board to work again. I hope this might also help some of you!! YMMV

    Let us all hope that the F12 bios will put an end to the problem for good!!

    Okay just to post an update, I ended up seind the board back to newegg (since it was less than a month old) and they shipped me out a shiny new ga-p35-ds4 Rev 2.1 MB. I installed it yesterday and everthing is going good (for now).

    I do however have a BIOS question? Problem? Statement?

    My board is a Rev 2.1 (says so on the PCB and the box) but…the BIOS it came with is F8. According to Gigabyte’s website F10 is the first release for the rev 2.1

    I want to update to atleaset F10 to take advantage of the Dynamic Energy Saver technology but im thinking their might be a reason that it shipped with F8 maybe that is the most stable BIOS? I don’t know, maybe ill get some feedback here.

    See attached cpuZ image

    BTW cpuZ reports my Rev as “A2”

    I got my DS4 2.1 at newegg a few weeks ago, shipped with F* or 9 I dont remember, but I quickly installed F11 as it has the new loadline calibrations and the older bios's do not.

    I assume they ship with older bios's because that was the only bios made when they actually left the giga factory

    No worries, 2.1 is very close to 2.0; the F11 is the same for both i'm pretty sure that goes for F8 and below too.

    I RMAed it to Gigabyte. It should get there tomorrow. I just wondering if my
    EVGA 256-P2-N765-AR GeForce 8600GTS Superclocked 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card is somehow the problem. Its already superclocked and there is not way in bios of the p35board to turn off the "pci boost" or whatever its called. Plus the PCI card is DDR3 not DDR2 if that makes any difference.
