I have overclocked my CPU (Q6600) to 3.0GHz and set the vcore to 1.31 which was the lowest I could get without errors in prime95.

I have set the memory ratio to 1:1

Nothing else has been changed.

When i come to boot up the computer, it runs for a couple of seconds then shuts down for another couple of seconds only to boot up without any problem moments later.

Is this a problem?

This only occurs on a fresh boot. Restarting and general running of my computer has no faults whatsoever

Made a mistake, the memory is 2x2GB not 2x4GB

usually they (p5q)restart if your oc fail. so look into your oc settings. may be ram settings.

The overclock is still active when the computer finally boots, this has happened with the memory set to auto and me entering the specific details. Plus with everything on auto bar a 100MHz overclock to the CPU

You are on manual overclocking mode?

I set the Ai Overclock Tuner to manual

At the moment it is pretty much a case of entering any overclock at all causes a restart at bootup.

OK, so I have been doing some reading and if what I have read is correct the double boot I am getting is normal. It only happens after I have turned the power off at the plug, the motherboard needs constant power even when it is not on to keep certain voltage settings etc.

That would pretty much explain why the boot doesn't fail completely, and the overclock is kept.
