X570 e gaming On/Off at cold boot Overclocked RAM

So I installed a pack of x4 32GB sticks and overclocked them to 3600 using DOCP. I'm getting an on, off then normal boot. I read this was normal with asus boards? I read here someone saying turn off ErP, it was off anyway. Anyway to stop this, or is it just the system testing the overclock before booting? I have upgraded to BIOS 5003 (latest as of this post). Some research seems to suggest this is normal, with a few people saying it is not - however most confirming this to be normal with some boards. (I had previously been using x2 packs of the same but ram that wasn't designed to play together - previously I have x2 packs of 2x32gb ram to make up 128 - still the same ram etc. Now I have a 4x32 set)

I think it's fine, these things have been employed by vendors to circumvent certain behaviour for decades now. Cycling the board in this way is not going to have any impact on a devices usable lifespan.

Hi @primeshooter,

Yes, the behaviour is normal depending on the board and configuration. Some controllers on the board may require a power cycle, or the CPU may require one depending on the changed parameters or memory configuration.

Ok thank you for that. It's strange that it's not done that before though, could it be bios version depending also? It also does it on a restart, in that it restarts fine but it does the on off thing too in those instances. Also hoping this won't affect longevity of my M.2 drives and ssds by being cycled like this. What do you think?

That's great, thank you

Meant to ask, worth updating my chipset drivers from asus website? I think mine are an older version?
