    I should say that we aren't exactly dealing with a windows7/BSOD issue per se, but really much rather a BIOS and hardware problem.. along the lines of voltage etc that you have described earlier..

    I feel bad for placing this 'curse' but I'm pretty sure you'll run chunks of errors on a coldboot memtest

    this guy here. another sufferer
    Cold Boot = BSOD (Windows XP SP2) - TechSpot OpenBoards

    and so is this guy
    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/27...problems-build

    the BSOD is just a manifest of the issues we are having. some get BlackSOD, some BlueSOD, some don't even boot and just restart.. mine is a grey screen after desktop. LOL.
    In all cases, the computer runs just fine after some warm up.

    Ahh, OK!

    Well first off you need to keep in mind these boards are brand new, and so the BIOSes may not be mature for quite some time yet. So it could just be due to immature BIOSes or settings still need adjustments

    If you think it could be settings, please give me your full specs and settings in a template from the link in my signature. I'll have a look and see if anything looks "off"

    I'm caught whether to return the current setup to the shop and get them to find me a good configuration (another brand etc) or wait it out and 'hope' that gigabyte comes with a BIOS that solves this problem.

    flashing BIOS too often isnt a good thing either (i've already flashed once from f3 to f5)

    the shop might not be able to provide a setup that works also, since it requires a cold boot to try :(

    i'll get to template when i get home in about 3 hours.. sucks to have to work and have so little time to service your computer.

    Other brands would be the same. Gigabyte will get the BIOS kinks worked out, this is just what always happens with all new hardware. X58 was the same a year ago.

    I flash BIOSes 5-10 times a week, sometimes more. And I do this often, likely 100+ Flashes on the board I am typing on now. So you are fine to flash anytime you want, as long as you follow proper flashing guidelines you will be fine

    Ya, get me your settings when you get time, likely may just need some minor adjustments.

    There does seem to be a few cold boot issues floating around - let's hope it's something gigabyte can get fixed. In the meantime though, obviously, I'll keep trying!

    Here are my full specs. My RAM is rated at 1.65V, 1600MHz, CL7-7-7-21
    I run a Intel i5 750 2.66GHz
    and GA-P55M-UD2
    and CoolerMaster 500W Extreme Power Plus.

    I've tried a previous setting where RAM Voltage was 1.5V [Auto], and clocked at CL9-9-9-24
    Just to let you know that also didn't work

    found another guy with the same problem
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/rand...91/index3.html
    he didn't exactly diagnose it as coldboot related, but i'm damn right sure his is, he just didn't know.

    Try these for 1600Mhz, your issues in the settings above look only to be with possibly PCH, and for sure QPI/Vtt

    should i just flash my bios from f5 to f6 provided on tweaktown just for good measure?

    also if all else fails, i'm planning to get one part replaced at the shop to try out on my own. which would you guess? the ram or the PSU?

    Yes, I would!

    Hmm, what memory kit do you have? Model # or link please.

    Same, link for PSU if you can please.

    in the 'requirements' tab my mobo isn't listed :(
    it does say a command rate of 2T so should i use that?

    and this is my PSU
