    Default GA-X58A-UD3R - SSD + HDD - cold boot issues

    1st cold boot - everything looked good, boot into windows, no BSOD, but as soon as I clicked the mouse to start Google Chrome the entire computer shutdown, as though someone pulled the power cord out of the wall.

    2nd cold boot - disconnected the 1 TB storage drive and everything worked perfect.

    Cyberpower
    i7 950
    GA-X58A-UD3R rev.2 - FC1 bios
    A-DATA DDR3-1600G, CL: 9-9-9-24, Voltage 1.55v~1.75V, AX3U1600GB2G9-BG (3x2GB)
    Corsair TX750W
    ATI 5770
    Corsair F80 - 80gb Force SSD - Windows 7 Pro 64bit
    WD 1TB - WD1002FAEX - Storage drive

    Once the computer is warm everything works perfect. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    David

    FYI: Here is a thread detailing the steps leading up to the current condition: Windows 7, A-DATA ram, Gigabyte board - performance question - Memory - Motherboards-Memory

    Okay, further testing has shown on the first cold boot the computer will crash like someone pulled the power cord with the 1 TB HDD plugged in or unplugged.
    I can open my computer and resource monitor fine, but when I click on Google Chrome it instantly dies.
    2nd boot the computer works perfect.

    Away from computer until Monday morning. I know it is on IDE. The SATA 3 ports are connected to the external hard drive dock station on top of the coolermaster case only.

    In gainesville, Florida

    Will post a complete breakdown on connections on Monday at the latest.

    ^^^ this doesnt look right even for stock clocks imo,whats the ram voltage rated at? 1.5? or 1.65? if dram is 1.65 set to 1.66 in the bios and qpi/vtt looks too low aswell id set that to atleast 1.30000v,it might helps fix the lock ups when its cold

    sorry im confused about 1.55v-1.75v 1.75v for dram is way too much,1.66v is the limit

    The 1.55-1.75V is printed on sticker attached to each stick of RAM. The bios optimized defaults I started at were 1.5V settings, today I was running 1.66V. Although I did not change the qpi/vtt, that could also be worth a try.

    check the qpi/vtt voltage,if its less than 1.3v then i would set it to that and see if it improves anything,but you will get random lock ups like you discribe if its too low

    The qpi/vtt voltage is stock setting running optimized defaults in fc1 bios, which I think was 1.175 volts from memory. Will give a setting above 1.3v a try on monday morning. Thanks

    Intel controller
    SATA2_0 - SSD drive (Windows 7 Pro 64bit)
    SATA2_1 - Sony DVD
    SATA2_2 - Empty
    SATA2_3 - Empty
    SATA2_4 - Empty
    SATA2_5 - Empty

    Marvell controller
    SATA3_6 - WD 1TB storage drive SATA3, 6 GB/s, 7200rpm
    SATA3_7 - Empty
    SATA3_8 - eSATA port on top of CM case
    SATA3_9 - eSATA port on top of CM case

    IDE config, although I would like to change to AHCI config because I think the SSD drive would perform better
