    I will not use it.

    But I must say it's strange to have a button but not be able to use it. I can agree to some extent, not using it to shutdown windows. But not be able to shut it down during the post is really strange to me. Of all the hundreds of PCs I have worked with, this have never been the case.

    I will not use the button for a month or so... Then I will test again.

    Thanks!

    The button can be used to turn on the machine no problem, but anytime you forcefully something to shut down before it's done doing what it needs you are going to have problems.

    During post it can cause issues because the BIOS is being read and compared, and stopping that midway through can cause corruption, so that's why it can give you hassles then too. You can shut down in the BIOS with it no problem, but when it's in the middle of doing things it sometimes can cause corruption.

    Ok, hopefully it will not shut down anymore. So there will not be an issue in the future. Knock on wood. :)

    Thanks for all your help!

    It happened again.

    The computer shuts down. When I try to start it again it won't start, I have to remove the power, wait for a while, pray and hopefully it will start.

    When it do start it says CMOS checksum error and default me to the last known good.

    I have changed the PSU and the memory and it make no difference. I CPU temp is 30-50 degrees, mostly around 30. The integrated GPU temp is 40-50 degrees.

    What should I do? Is it the motherboard who is broken?

    Best regards

    Do you have another CMOS battery you can switch out with? If so do that and see if it helps, battery might be bad.

    Ok. I have struggled for a while.

    There must me some overheating issue. But the CPU never ever gets hotter than 50 degrees, typically between 30-40 degrees. The integrated GPU is always about 40 degrees. I have had to install the motherload of fans to have it work at all. I have to nail it down, otherwise it will fly away. The first two month the computer never shut down. Now it does. Doesn't matter what load. And it never ever gets hot. But still it will overheat?

    I have changed every part except the CPU and the mobo. I think it feels like the mobo is broken somehow. What do you guys think?

    I have also changed the mobo battery.

    Best regards

    Sorry to hear, yes maybe something is wrong with the board, I'd go ahead and RMA the board before the CPU if you think it's one of those two.

    How is the SB/ICH Temps, that's not overheating is it?
