I miss my Rampage Extreme (775)

1. Cold Boot Issue

Irrelevant of memory, powersupply or videocard. The ongoing thread is not very responsive on what seems to be a systematic problem with the Asus P6T line of motherboards. Surely, I'm not the only one at that has not encountered a similar situation.

I can run 20, 21 x 200 8,8,8,24 without a problem : games, prime all work fine. The problem is when trying to start the computer after a long shut-off period of time, there is no boot sequence - no post. Tried another powersupply, the card is new, memory passes without a problem. Solution, press the reset button or leave the computer on 24/7.

Bios 0301
Bios 0904

2. On occasion, the bios will completely reset to factory settings during a cold boot sequence as well.

3. I've noticed a high pitch sound as well coming for the case...I'm going to try and isolate it but it sounds like it's coming from the board as well.

Anyone who has anyone or a combination of the above, please reply.

Can anyone say...Recall?

I can confirm what Ulrich said about Video cards screaming. This normally means one of the external power connectors is not plugged in or not making proper contact in the video card.

Hi T...

This is my first thought, also.  My 8800GTS would scream when I forgot to connect the PCI-express power connectors.
