    Yeah you did and it sounds like you're one of the lucky ones. Basically there appears to be cold boot issues with many owners boards.

    1. On reboot after power has been switched off the bios resets itself, the latest bios is supposed to fix this but users are still reporting issues.
    2. On reboot after shutdown the board will not boot. To fix this you have to pull the psu and wait a while and thn plug back in and boot. (my X570 Aorus Pro suffers from this)
    3. PCIE 4 NVME compatability. Many NVME SSD drives are not detected in bios or just randomly disappear on reboot. Again latest bios supposed to fix but only 1 of my 3 drives is rock solidly detected every time.

    Hopefully more bios updates will fix all these issues but Gigabyte are very slow in resolving the issues and are being very silent in responding to complaints on their forums.

    crikus, sounds ungood! i haven`t had a twitch from mine. i have never touched the clocks or done anything else bar turning xmp on, tho i did update the bios to f11- i wasn`t having any problems before either but.
    this must be the `silicon lottery` i`ve heard about- hope i`m as lucky in this compo lol.
    rather than pulling the psu, does clearing cmos not work? sounds a bit radical.

    Ok quick update, swapped out my test psu (BeQuiet 650W) with the free Gigabyte G750H I got with motherboard and initially my cold boot issues appear to have gone!!!!

    Strawb would you mind stating what your PSU is and also the RAM??

    I'm still using a Sandy Bridge I5-2500K, an excellent chip, but it's about time for an upgrade. Here's hoping I win. Thanks for the opportunity to win such a nice prize.

    Thanks for that, I'm wondering if these issues I & others have experienced is down to using older spec PSU's as I've seen it mentioned elsewhere that changing the PSU fixed the issues. And it's interesting that when I changed to a modern PSU issues appear to have been resolved and obviously yours is a modern spec PSU etc. eitherway thanks for the info.

    So they found a vulnerability and Microsoft patched it. I don't understand what the issue is?

    Yeah can easily be - I've seen this before when there is a change in CPU/mobo power management, I think back in the sandy ridge days and possibly before as well back on X2 - the draw when booting wasn't enough to pull the PSU out of standby - overclocking actually fixed the problem! Newer PSUs have more sensitive standby levels.

    Seems to be an AGESA problem - It's all over Reddit and an issue with my Asus 570 as well
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    On Gigabyte boards bios F11 was supposed to sort that issue out, not sure how effective it was though. Eitherway on my board the upgrade on the PSU has sorted my issues.
