Re: new problems with new built computer
It should only do it when it's booting from a cold start. It shouldn't do it if your restarting the computer. I have two EVGA X58 mobo's that do it everytime the system is started, not restared. The Asus P8P67 Pro mobo I'm using now only does it in the morning when the ambient temperture is cool and the PC has been off all night.
While you say your not overclocking, you are, but it's just not in the manner most people think of when overclocking is mentioned. The memory controller, that's built into your cpu, has a default speed of 1333 MHz. When your memory is set to run at 1600 MHz you are overclocking the memory controller. And your also overclocking the memory itself. I also have 8GB of DDR3 1600 Corsair Vengeance, the modules are actually DDR3 1333 that has been handpicked and tested to run at an overclocked speed.
The mobo does the start, shutdown, restart routine for system stability during startup. With my EVGA mobo's it was a feature introduced with a bios update and it did take me by surprise. But they are suppose to do it. With the Asus mobo I'm really just assuming it's the same thing, though it may only do it in overclocking conditions. I know my P8P67 Pro does it and I'm not concerned, it won't hurt anything.
