Built a new PC with following components:
ASRock 990FX Extreme 4 BIOS P2.00
Gigabyte GTX760 2GB OC Rev 1.0
Crucial BLS2CP4G3D1609DS1S00CEU Sport 8GB Kit
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB
Seagate Barracuda 3.5 inch 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB 6GB/S
When you cold boot the PC, the computer begins to boot up but stops reporting code 36 on the motherboard LCD. Nothing is output to the attached monitors (either HDMI or DisplayPort) and the USB devices don't appear to get powered.
If you power off the PC (by holding the case power button) then power it on again the PC boots fine, displaying the boot screen and loads into Windows without issue. From that point on it all works fine without a problem.
It only seems to be an issue if the PC is left off for more than say 10 minutes.
I've tried moving and removing the RAM sticks and moving the PCIE graphics cards to different slots to no avail. I've also tried different RAM and different RAM slot combinations.
ASRock support have suggested I flash the BIOS to a Beta release but previous experience of this makes me very wary of doing so.
Hoping someone has had the same problem and has resolved it.
Thanks in advance.

I was just experiencing an intermittent reboot hang with error 60. I was experimenting with a new Raid card equipped with its own memory. Removed the card and bingo no more hanging. Would you happen to have any controllers with memory on board?
