Asus P8Z68-V Pro Double Boot?

Hey guys this is my first real powerful system I have put together. I have an odd problem though, Let me list my basic parts first.

Asus P8z68-V Pro
XFX 850 Limited Editon Single Rail PSU
Intel 2500k
Hyper 212 Plus CPU Cooler
16gb Corsair Vengeance 1.5V 1600 MHZ Ram

Basically what happens is when I turn on my pc, it immediately shuts off after all the fans and lights spin up for half a second, sits there for 3 seconds, then decides to turn back on and boot up to windows. If I try to remedy the situation through the bios and click save changes and reboot, after it leaves the bios it shuts off for 4 seconds then turns on again and starts running?

I believe it has something to do with my overclock settings as I have not manually set my CPU voltage as its left on auto.
My settings look something like this,

When I was running the bios version of 0706 it would only cause this problem if I internally set the CPU to 4500 MHZ in the bios, so I decided to leave it at 4400 and set it to 4500 via profile with AI Suite II and get the 4500 results stable 24 hour with prime 95. After I updated to bios 1101 it turns itself off after cold boots and even after restarts it shuts off and back on?

Is this causing damage to my pc? Do I have a setting wrong?

It will not cause damage to your system. I am sorry for not having time to go through the screenshots at the moment but why don't you go back to the bios revision which was working for you?

Well it claims that the newest is the most stable. So I thought I would try to find a work around.

It turns out that it is not what they claim to be :) )

Apologies for the double post. I am confused with the AI Suite profile. Just try to set the voltage manually first. Check which voltage is stabile for the 4500 clock and than if you would like to use offset voltage, just adjust it by measuring and estimating how much offset is required. Offset set to + auto should not cause this problem but the bios may be giving low voltage on this setting. Check which red light diode is on when your mobo is trying to restart and consult the manual to verify where the problem lies.

Sorry for reviving an old post - just finished building my system.

When exiting the BIOS after saving with changes it can spin up and then spin down up to 3 times.

Did anyone ever resolve this?
