    Default Odd Issue with EP45-UD3R

    I have been having a problem with my board recently. If I power it on at least once a day everything is fine, however if I let it sit for more then a day it will reset all of my settings in M.I.T. due to boot failure. I just go into the BIOS and put the settings back and it boots just fine after that. I have run several stress tests and passed them all, including an Intel Burn Test (using 4GB memory at 15 passes), and OCCT for 2 hours (Medium data set, normal priority). My temps never get above 62C for either test. I just want to get some advice in case there is a setting that I should change that I'm not aware of. I don't want to push my clocks any higher with this stepping and temp. TIA.

    I dont know if its that odd:

    1.my memory has a 4-4-4-12 profile on it, initally it wasnt recocognised.
    now no matter what defaults i use I cant get the mb back as new..it will allways go for 4-4-4-12 as "standard".
    2.
    I rarely leave the pc off for a day.but when i did on an older f5 bios i would sometimes get the prob u describe.
    3.
    I would also get a load of "last good" bios settings that werent even that.like 500 fsb would be there,but memory etc would be all auto..the pc wouldnt boot.
    The f8 bios seems to have cured that,i suppose the main thing is dont panic,
    Current Systems:

    Just a guess but maybe the CMOS battery is going bad, maybe try a new one

    Yeah Could be the battery. Do you turn off the PSU or Power Point when you turn your PC off?

    I'll try putting in a new battery, never thought about that. @NimrodAUS- I leave the power switch on the PSU on. I have it plugged into a battery backup (1285VA).

    This happens to my PC too.

    If I unplug at the wall over night then switch on, it will boot loop. Once I've turned off the PSU switch for ~30 sec it will boot up, sometimes with my overclock, sometimes I'll just have to go back into MIT for the failed OC message then save and exit. The only thing that stops this is if I leave the PC powered on at the wall.

    As you have a UPS, it may be an odd quirk of the UPS or compatibility between the UPS and mobo/PSU causing it. You could try a new CMOS battery, but I don't think that's the issue. Worth a shot to trouble shoot though.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I bumped the MCH voltage to 1.28V just in case the extra RAM might be causing an issue. I read somewhere on here that if you use 8GB that the voltage should be 1.26-1.30V. I'm picking the battery up at work tomorrow as well. Here's hoping.

    In the mean time, I'd continue with the experementing to solve the issue. I'd bet alot of money on the |CMOS battery being just fine.

    Does the issue still occur when connected directly to the mains, rather than through the UPS? I have heard of certain UPS's not being compatible with certain PSU's etc, due to the type of sine wave used, though I admit I don't know enough about UPS's to comment further on that.

    Well, I replaced the battery, swapped UPS's, plugged the computer straight into the wall outlet and it still happens. Come to find out I have a DVD-RW that's failing. Getting a new one and going to see what happens from there.

    GeekGuy:
    That would be the first time I've heard of a failing ODD messing with a board setup. Without the drive installed, is the board still forgetting its settings?
    Hope you keep us updated. All I could think of is either a bad battery, which is unlikely given the relatively young age of the board, or loose contact in the battery socket, which could happen if the battery has been removed before. I've seen the latter, though rare, on older boards.
