    I have given you my full settings bar the ram timings which ive also said.

    Im not running standard in windows at all, im running my overclocked specs from the BIOS, ist ONLY on boot up when the issue occurs. Also, as im stable in prime i havent raised my voltage as i dont believe that to be the issue.

    What other settings would you like?

    Edit: Also i can restart fine without the warning screen, its only on cold boots in the morning when the issue will occur. (generally its on within the day)

    Today i managed to bootup without any warnings whatsoever :S

    Im convinced this is a BIOS bug and not my system... though am very grateful for the help given so far as if it wasnt for you i would have still been stuck at 1.30000v vcore so dont get me wrong, i am very grateful :)

    just keep your eye on it,you could try reflahing a few times with the latest bios as it might not have fully accepted it when it was giving warnings,maybe its working propperly now.

    As id said earlier in this thread MY BIOS is still on F2, my flatmate is now on F6 Test, neither make a difference, both have the same bootups, which generally means in the morning we'll both get an overclock failure screen... re-booting for the rest of the day is fine with no warnings... however this morning i didnt get the warning screen though am sure i will do tomorrow.......

    youll find things will improve as newer bios's are released,there was alot of problems with the ud5 mainly sleep resume but alls well now and alot of memory improvements,the ud7 is still a new board its to be expected

    I know its a new board but its a rather annoying "feature" which ive read about loads by googling it but cant find a resolution :(

    Otherwise im happy with the setup

    I have never seen the warning myself without unstable settings. I do know what you mean about "Morning" or "Cold" boots though, this often causes a triple boot or failure to boot without a restart on some boards, but the red warning is not associated with this issue, nor caused by it.

    You may think so though, and I could see why, but it is only caused by unstable settings. Since this is happening to you only at those times it means you are likely very close to where you need to be, but still just far enough off for it to cause a failure.

    I do recommend you update to at least F6a, F6x, or F6 Test 1. F2 is a very old BIOS and does not have many of the added enhancements and fixes that the newer BIOSes offer.

    Is that where it powers up, powers down, then powers back up again? If so i get that problem when the red warning screen is going to show

    As i have 2 machines here one with F2, and one with F6, i dont see how updating "mine" to F6 is going to resolve anything?

    Edit: Well i cant believe im saying this but ive just had a BSOD for the first time on current settings... didnt get to see the info quick enough on the BSOD but windows shows this...

    "Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.768.3
    Locale ID: 2057

    Additional information about the problem:
    BCCode: a
    BCP1: FFFFFA803624F000
    BCP2: 000000000000000D
    BCP3: 0000000000000001
    BCP4: FFFFF80002C90E33
    OS Version: 6_1_7600
    Service Pack: 0_0
    Product: 768_1

    Any ideas?

    For now have upped vcore voltage one notch though i believe the cause to have been the graphics card on that occasion as all my settings had reverted to standard. (There is a 2d issue with some 5970 setups)

    Yes, partial bootup. C1 is shown 2-3 times during this process on the onboard diagnostic LED. This is normal process, especially when cold. It should not mean the red warning will appear, thas only happens with incorrect settings.

    This happens with all X58 boards I have, and I never see a red warning.

    Not sure about your BSOD that would be 0x0000000a though, often this can be memory related.

    BIOS may or may not help, but using an older one is not going to help you diagnose anything. Update them both to the same BIOS so you are all up to date, then we know an old BIOS is not to blame for anything related or unrelated.

    So do you not know what that BSOD code means? Thats the kind of code i normally get, and when it occurs dont get time to see much else...

    Ok, time to flash BIOS then (not that i think it will make a difference) any suggestions on which one to use out of the many varations of F6?
