Here's the goods:

( Quick explaination...applies to this case as well )
"A lot of people with a CUSL2 series motherboard suffer from what is generally known as "The Cold Boot Problem". The Cold Boot Problem comes into play when you have a processor that needs more than its default voltage to POST (initial Power On Self Test) at a certain speed.

Although you can select voltages up to 0.3V higher than the default in BIOS, the CUSL2 series does not apply the selected voltage until after the computer has POSTed. This means that your computer will hang during POST because your processor does not receive the required voltage. "
