    I'm having the same problem with the power, but the only way I can get it to power back on is by removing the graphics cards, then starting and shutting down the system then replacing the graphics.

    I have updated to the latest bios and the memory timings and voltage for my 12GB Corsair Dominator PC3-12800 are correct.

    I'm thinking bad board!!

    And you changed to these CPU settings after updating the bios?

    in the bios sellect MIT menu.
    CPU Features,
    Disable CPU Enhanced halt C1e
    Disable C3/C6/C7 State Support
    Disable Cpu EIST function.

    put one dim in the 2nd slot from the cpu. Boot up the board. If it doesn't work try each of the dimms. If they dont work then you need to go to staples and buy a cheapo DD3 that you will later take back.

    Put it in the 2nd slot from the cpu boot up going to the memory timings and set them to that of the OCZ ram.... Insert the ram and away you go.

    Well, this is ongoing. After I got back from work last night, the comp was locked up from within Vista. It did the double boot thing again.

    I read on another forum that HPET should be enabled to keep the voltage stable for the cpu's memory controller. I did that, and it booted back into Vista again.

    I can't send it to shutdown without needing to unplug it for about a minute to get it to boot again(seems to be taking longer now, used to be about 20 seconds).

    Is there a new bios on it's way soon for this board? I'm back to thinking it's a bad board or bad bios.

    I've been digging around on the Extreme Systems board and found this thread where they are having issues with certain settings in the current bios as well.

    Gigabyte EX58-UD5/Extreme Discussion Thread - XtremeSystems Forums

    It looks like the S3 suspend setting might be broken in this bios version.
    It looks like there might be some new stability issues in the Turbo mode.

    There are some suggestions about raising the QPI/VTT voltage to get it stable. Since this OCZ memory is the low voltage version, that might be part of my headaches. I need to do a bit more research before I try cranking voltages to stabilize the memory as it sounds like too much of a voltage gap between the QPI & the Vdimm can trash the CPU.

    Mine seems stable for a while too, but occasionally when I shut it down or reboot, it does that "hard" shutdown where I have to unplug it for a minute before it will respond.

    The bootups after that can be a mixture of double-boot, infinite loop boot, or doing a hard shutdown during bootup causing the whole process to repeat again. Then I'll get the safe-mode prompt when Vista loads.

    When it can boot into Vista, everything is fast & happy.
