run some tests on your memory and hard disks.

Usually blinking red lights is a bad thing. Your motherboard manual will have information on what those red lights mean, you may want to look at that.

Well if i were you, I'll change the order of the DDR3 memory. I had a pair of DDR2 memory in past and they work in one order, don't work in reverse order. Also you can get an exact information by using a POST test card.

I'm surprised there's no beeps from the board when the red lights are on.

When the OP said "rease" the BIOS, I'm assuming he meant "cleared".

I have quite the same problem here

ASUS SABERTOOTH X58, Socket-1366
Intel Core™ i7 Quad Processor i7-950
Seasonic X-650
G.Skill RL Series RipJaws 12 Go DDR3-SDRAM PC3-10666

I' m trying to test with my old corsair 500w power supply, and for now no crash anymore. (few houres)

but i don't know yet if my power supply is the problem, or Compatibility problem with the mother board with the "Pull" technolology of the power supply.


Did you resolved your problem?

I'll tell you if i found a solution

Finally it was one of the cable of the power supply that wasn't prefectly plug in, and making loose contact.

Hope this is a clue for your problem.
