    G'Day Crew, once again THANK YOU for your time and replies :)

    I appreciate the 2600K is a Gen.2 CPU and if I knew that buying a 3730K etc will definitely fix the problem, I would buy it immediately. I may do this, 1. To eliminate the problem 2. Upgrade it anyway

    I have noticed the POST codes, but not noticed if it was or stops at DB before rebooting, sorry. Will confirm shortly.

    I have noticed that the XMP profile sets exactly the correct voltage and timings for the Corsair Vengeance memory. I also set them manually to see if that would help. It did not. I also tried a single stick x 4 and it did not help either.
    I actually have used another set of identical ram (from sons PC) and it has not helped. Also tried no Primary graphics installed, same same.

    I thought that my Corsair AX750 might not have enough power for the system, but have read AND confirmed with Corsair that it should be sufficient for the components installed.

    If I have to buy a new board, so be it. Will probably just have to pony up the $$$$ as sending it back to the retailer is ALWAYS a pain, they will test it and find no fault as usual................

    Hi mate im also getting these exact same cold boot issues. I thought I was done with em but obviously not just happen to me now. I also have a 2600K this is my 2nd one now. This issue is totally random im on F13a bios. Mobo powers ON n OFF few times eventually powers on & retains overclock. I wish GB would get this sorted.

    Be sure to include brand names and model numbers.
    its best to put your full system in signature. This way it helps to see if its certain hardware which causes this issue. Im currently trying memory with XMP disabled with same timing 10 11 10 28 1t and instead of auto voltage which is just under 1.6v ive bumped it up a lil to 1.62v. Does anyone know which ME firmware is built in to bios F13a. The cold boot for me is random usually it will boot no probs and run sweet at 4.8ghz

    I think ive sussed the cold boot issue. Ive disabled XMP. setup memory timings manually upped DRAM voltage to 1.62v. My backup bios is F11 and main bios is what im using F13a. So far not had the cold boot issue. Ive tried ON n OFF plenty times. I hope this cures it for good:)

    Thought id report back its been months now.. no more cold boots..ive updated to latest bios F12j on both bioses...the problem lies with XMP for some reason..no biggy cos once disabled everything works fine infact works better with tighter timings. (10 11 10 28 1T) instead of 11 11 11 30 2T

    Fast boot & Ultra fast boot workin (Ultra is too quick no way of getting back into bios without reset cmos)
