    I applied the changes in bios suggested by psycho101 and Nimrod. For the moment crossing fingers, it's booting fine! Wait and see, I'll report back after a week. Thanks again.

    Great to hear. Hopefully it will be fine. Good work Psycho101 on your settings. I dont know why I though there was a normal in the Robust Graphics Thingy. Just ignore that bit. Fast seems the go.

    Hello all,
    as promised, here's an update after 10 days.
    Cold boot again this morning ....

    I went the usual road , removed cmos battery. I adjusted the BIOS settings to have them again as advised by Psycho01; but this time this wouldn't boot... Eventually after several reboots, I reached bios screen where I saw a warning explaining that the system didn't boot because of overclocking.
    I've just changed a few settings by putting on manual some settings which where on auto.
    But I also noticed something strange: the default auto settings changed at three places from what they were last week: (in red changes suggested by psycho101) (in blue changes I've done now) (in green the 3 default values which changed)

    Any ideas?
