But, when i shut down computer and i wait for a couple of hours to cool down...it won't post...so my mobo resets all the setting, and then i have to go into BIOS to put the settings back. It same happens with stock settings. I heard about thing called cold bugged CPU? What is it mean? When i fire up my computer CPU is about 28-30C. This doesn't happen if i play games, then i shut down and then i decide to fire up machine again in like 20 minutes. Only if it was off for longer period of time. It really sucks. Is there any solution for it, or i have to live with it. I have a feeling this CPU can go up o 3.0Ghz with no problem. Default voltage is 1.35, i have it on 1.375 to be safe. As I said it's running right now at 2.75Ghz
Cold-bugged only refers to people who put their systems under phase-change cooling. You don't have to worry about that.
The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is that your CMOS battery might be dead.
