    Default GA-P55A-UD4P Warm boot issues.

    First off System specs to get that outta the way first.
    Mobo: GA-p55a-UD4P
    CPU: I7 860 w/ Corsair H50
    PSU: Seasonic M12D 850 Watt
    Ram: 2 sticks of G.Skill ripjaws (1600)
    Video: Radeon 5870

    The Mobo, CPU, Ram are all brand new. The PSU and Video card I've had for months without an issue.

    Here the problem now:
    The computer starts up without a problem on a cold boot and runs perfectly fine. But if I shut down the system I can't get it to start up again after that. What happens when I turn it back on again is the system starts up, then turns itself off a half a second later. Sometimes it tries to start up again a few seconds later just to fail and turn off again.
    When I can get it to post on a warm boot it resets the bios settings and gives the warning screen about recovering from a bad overclock. Now this system is running on default settings with no overclocking. I've also had the backup bios recovery program kick in twice for no reason as well on a warm boot.

    Now these are things I've tried to see if it would fix it without any luck so far:
    Taken the board out of the case to see if it was a grounding issue.
    Reseating the CPU. Tried 2 different Heatsinks as well. Also checked to make sure the heatsink wasn't screwed in too tight as well.
    Memtest86 the ram for a couple cycles. No errors, memory is fine.
    Tried each stick of ram by itself in Slot 1.
    More voltage to the ram.
    No USB or SATA drives connected.
    Different PSU used.
    Complete CMOS reset without a battery in it for awhile.
    Flashed Bios F6 and the beta F7 with Q-flash in the BIOS menu.

    If someone has an idea what could be causing it i'm all ears. Altho I'm ready to chalk this one up to being a bad board and RMA it.

    its probably a case of auto voltages,see other post on random freezes same cpu as you and board,set ram voltage to your rams spec in the bios,set cpu voltage to "normal" setting in bios,set qpi to 1.2000v and set system performance enhance to standard,then see if it does it

    Figured it out. Looks like it was a PSU problem after all. Replaced the Seasonic M12D with a Corsair TX850 and the problem went away.

    Just curious as to what was wrong with the Seasonic as it is a very capable psu? How old was the psu? Were the voltage rails weak? Just curious.

    Only thing I can think of is my unit's 8-pin 12v line is bad. Since the M12D's 8 & 4 pin 12v cords are 2 completely separate cords I never needed to use the 8-pin with my old motherboard. I guess next time i'm on newegg ordering parts I'll pick up a cheap 4-pin to 8-pin converter to see if my theory is correct.
    Unit is less than a year old and the voltages looked spot on last time I checked.
