Hi,

I'm having sort of a 'problem' with my system. Not really a problem because it is working very well, but basically something that worries me.

When I do a cold boot (system powered off -and switched off- for over 12 hours) and push the power button, I get this:
1) System powers on, fans start spinning...for 1 second
2) Then system powers off...for about 3 seconds
3) Systems powers on again and works fine from then on

Why is my system doing this on cold boot? Is it something to worry about?

I'm running a 3930K CPU @ 4.4GHz.

greetings,
Dries

that is a basic thing tha tasus motherboards do and some other types of mobo's do, if it is not giving you any problems(no post) then dont worry about it its perfectly normal
