BIOS didn't seem to fix it, but I flipped the TPU switch on the motherboard and now Windows uses all 8 gb.... I really have no idea what the problem is there.

I also am still getting the issue where when I turn on the computer it starts, the turns off, then starts back up a few seconds later. Alternatively, it will turn on then sit there pre-BIOS without loading.... This happened 4 times this morning.

I am wondering if my power supply is going or something, as this happened with my last parts too.

Honestly it might be a BIOS issue. That's the one bad thing about new tech - the growing pains. I would spend lots of time at Asus forums posting and learning about that board. I did this when I got my Gigabyte board as I had to learn its quirks and whatnots. I do this anytime I get new hardware, that's me.

I'm sure you're not the only one experiencing issues with the board. Not saying it's a bad board, just a new socket design.

Aside from that, yeah it doesn't hurt to double-check the other components (including power supply) just to be sure.

Good luck.

This is the same issue I had with the old hardware though.

Well..... perhaps it's time to look at those items common to both systems. PS?

According the Spec sheet 1.5V is safe for the SandyBridge CPUs.

Think Id play it safe with the voltage limits of 1.36V we all know as well.

At least untill more testing has been done.

If Intel is listing that than it's safe. However the lower the volts the better the temps. In short - use as little as you can get away with (aka run stable).

Also I'm sure anyone pushing 1.5 is seriously overclocking the chip.

That's what I am wondering, but I don't know how to test it.

Really the only way is to start removing one item at a time and see how the system responds.

If you seriously feel like its the power supply you could buy a tester - Newegg.com - power supply tester to check it out. Quick, Easy, Cheap.

Or you could try the manual part as stated here - Power Supply Test - How Do I Test the Power Supply in My Computer? - PSU Test. Of course you'll have to feel comfortable with troubleshooting electrical parts.

If its acting the same, and the only part that was re-used was the PSU, it would certainly be my suspicion.
