    Default X58A-UD3R r2 Needs several attempts to start

    I’ve been running my X58A-UD3R rev.2 machine, a daily worker, for 2 years or so.
    It sleeps each night and wakes each morning with a mouse click.
    Just recently, it will not respond, so I push the main power button, the red light flickers and no start.
    It simply flickers on, goes off, and will not even flicker again until I flip the PSU switch off for a bit.
    After repeated attempts, it eventually starts normal.
    I do note some yellow and green lights in the DDR voltage bank when it is dead, these do turn off once the system finally boots.
    No software errors are showing up.
    Is this simply a case of bad Power Supply? It never misses a beat under use conditions.
    I’m sure this is a duplicate post, but I couldn’t find a similar thread.

    can you see how much auto is using for qpi/vtt? it will be in the bios or look in easytune/tuner/voltage 1

    you might need anywhere from 1.35-1.58v qpi/vtt with 12gb,may need even more

    well last time it was running (yesterday) voltage readouts looked fine. Can't get it to power up today.
    I've tried several things:
    different wall plug
    reset bios
    checked RAM with memtest
    re-seated RAM, vido and power to mb
    tried to boot with all power unplugged except mb, c:

    When it was running, it was flawless, I may just go pick-up another psu

    it could be psu,if it was running fine before and not now then somethings a miss,i just though it might be unstable due to low qpi/vtt voltage but you said it was running fine before

    did you try clearing the cmos? this will reset the bios/oc settings to default

    yes, it has a little button on the back to reset bios.

    Now it is acting different, it turns on for a second, then off, then repeats 4 seconds later, continuosly
