    Hi all,

    I have a Maximus Gene VI which is overcloking my CPU (4770k) using CPU boost (the auto overclocking utility in the maximus) to 4.6GHz

    When I press the power button, the fans spin at 100% for 3 seconds, then stop for 2 seconds (and the computer is silent) then the computer boots normally automatically.

    Does anyone know why this is? It isn't causing a problem, but it is extremely weird. Has anyone experienced this before?

    Computer works fine otherwise.

    how high does that CPU boost Overclock your memory if any?

    All my machines do that, nothing too serious.
    In my system I have 4 HDD on one splitter lead, which is unavoidable in the 800D, so the starting torque current draw combined with the CPU and GPU current draw make the PSU unhappy.
    Once the drives are already spinning from the first power on, the second power on uses less power and boots normally.

    If I unplug 2 of 4 HDD it boots first time every time, so very certain it's that, in my case at least!

    Doesnt it usually do this when you use the bios auto Overclock tuning?

    My p67 Sabertooth used to do that. and sometimes it would then report that Overclock failed.

    I would think if you set the CPU to stock, your pc will boot straight into your OS.

    I dont think it overclocks the memory at all. I am using 1600mhz G.Skill Ripjaws.

    I am also using 2 SSD's so there shouldnt be much power draw there either. Might try setting CPU back to normal to see what happens. The GTX 690 also might be drawing a lot of powerat boot I assume.

    You should see what voltage the auto overclock is using to get 4.6 Ghz, the manually set it below that while maintaining stability. The auto overclock typically uses way more voltage than you need, which can degrade yoir cpu alot faster
