    If you don't hear from him by tonight PM me and remind me, and I will send him a PM myself to see if he will come help you.

    This is normally just caused by incorrect settings. For now be sure you are setting your own Memory voltage to spec, set performance enhance to standard, and raise your NB VID voltage a bit.

    He will give you more direct advice on settings, I am just unfamiliar with AMD so I can't really help much.

    Hi damtoofast
    Please remove your cmos battery. Let it sit overnight and test it. You wont always get a warning message when the battery starts to get week. That or just drop a new one in there. I just want to eliminate this possibility.
    Then we should check to be sure the Bios settings are correct, but if they are changing every 4 to 6 hours they will go back to the backup bios settings again. Lets just do the battery first. Then we would like a picture of your bios settings. You can use these templates. Just print them and go into your bios and write your bios values down on these templates. Please write them all down. Change the ones on the templates so we don't get confused. Come back here and post them for us. We then can assist you on the correct changes to make in your Bios. We should start with pc health statues when you do this let it run for a little to allow the readings to level out.

    While searching your memory module I stumbled on this. Although here is 2 different MB. They do have the same memory, chipset, and restart issue.

    Anytime! We are here to help!

    I see he found you before I sent a PM, so he must have saw your post or got a PM from you before I could PM him.

    thanks for the link
    i have seen your post above for specs but before i go further i will do the following
    i have read the link you provided ( i googled for hours but i know it depends on the structure of words to get the right result) and found some interesting and familiar results.
    i have tried the single stick test and so far seems to be the same result - 1 stick gives post bios reboot cycle where as the other seemed to boot straight up. i will again try this in the morning and see how it goes. i have some kingston ram on its way and will also test this and compare results.
    i will post back with the results and hopefully with good news. i know this doesnt fix the issue with the current ram but at the end of the day i would like something that works out of the box not something you have to spend hours tweaking to get to work. if i have to ever hash total sytem and reload from scratch out of the box is alot easier on the hole process.
    failing all the above i will post results as requested and go further from there
    thanks so far lsdmeasap and artdrivers for all your assistance and will definitely post ongoing results for your info as well as others

    Hmmmm I have seen a very similar issue to this caused by a bad bios update thru @bios and antivirus was not disabled....Did you flash your bios using @bios?

    @bios is no problem provided:

    1) you do not overclock
    2) download the bios file first and flash from hdd

    I never had any issues...
