I've been to about 3 different forums and there are tons of people experiencing this type of problem with asus boards. If you know of another good brand, I would suggest using that.

Good luck,


I've assembled 4 P4C800 based systems now - and no evidence of the cold-boot problem you described......maybe the channels I go through to get my boards didn't get any of the lot(s) that were effected by this problem - all are working flawlessly :thumb:
