    Still no joy with this - I think I've now tried every combination of NB Voltage, DDR Voltage and tRFC with no improvement. I've avoided the +0.3 voltages as everything I've read seems to suggest this shouldn't be needed.

    The weird thing with all of this is that with almost every configuration (had trouble with tRFC at 327) I've tried, after a few reboots and/or opening the bios, saving (with no changes) I'm able to get my OS booting. Once its booting ok I have no further problems until I let the thing cool down. Is this normal? Given that I'm not trying to over-clock shouldn't I be able to use the auto settings?

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Just a thought? "CheckSum Error" Did you check the motherboard battery. Is the PC time clock correct?

    Could just be a BIOS Bug, have you tried all the older ones that still support your CPU? if not I would give a few of them a shot and see if things are any better.

    artdrivers - good thought but I've never noticed any issues with the clock or the cmos losing its settings. The board is about 8 months old and the issue has existed for that long - its only recently that I've been annoyed with it enough to work on it and get confident that its not the OS.

    lsdmeasap - I'm on F8a and had the same issue with F5 which was on the board when I bought it. I'll try F7 if Gigabyte still have it available.

    “The file is possibly corrupt. The file header checksum does not match the computed checksum.”
    Do not run a SATA/RAID and a SATA/IDE on the same SATA controllers

    KingdomM you said you suspected it was the SATA-II controller? Well you are right. Did you replace the SATA-II cables? Do you have Redundant Array of Independent Disks? You should not run a RAID and IDE on the same SATA-II controller. You will have a problem if the drives are RAID with a 1 x DVD RW Sata drive = (which is in native ide), and any other SATA HD's or DISK Drives that are formatted to be run in IDE on that RAID configured controller. Try removing your 1 x DVD RW Sata drive and any other SATA Drives that are formatted to be run in IDE. or Remove the RAID drives depending on what you want to leave. Which ever has your OS you presently want to use. (Windows 2008/WindowsXP/ect.) It should cold boot now. You can later hook them up to another SATA or SATAII controller pci/pcie card that has support if needed for native IDE mode. What I mean here is you got a choice of which SATA controller you use for your SATA/RAID or SATA/IDE

    Thanks artdrivers - In my original configuration (when I first set this rig up) I did have IDE and SATA 2 drives. Since then I've replaced the IDE and have purely SATA based disks.

    I've encountered this problem with both the old IDE setup and the new Sata setup.

    I've never used the RAID capabilities of this mb as a mirror or stripe don't match up with my current drive needs.

    You suggest replacing the Sata cables? I'm going to try unplugging all devices except my system drive and see if that makes any difference. I'll also try a different sata cable just to be sure.

    If that does not work I've had a response from Gigabyte tech support who suggest flashing to latest bios (done), resetting to fail-safe settings (done) and not trying any over-clocking settings (done). That all seems like sound advice but I've already tested as suggested previously so I think I'll follow their next piece of advice and take it back to my retailer.

    Spare a thought for me trying to convince them my intermittent fault exists :-)

    Thanks to everyone who has contributed!
