New Asus Sabertooth Z77 build.

Hi all, built a new system this past holiday. Ever since having it finished I get a random shut down with a few seconds of the rig being off then it boots up on it's own. Turns fully off then restarts its self. I spend most of my time while on this computer playing Warcraft. Only time when it will have this issue as far as I know. Can a game cause that or have others had this kinda issue with the Sabertooth?

No, I did not install it. I have no need to overclock...not sure what causes it to happen randomly. Happens once or twice a day.

You could check in the Event Viewer if it gives you a code of the problem...

I have done some searches on Google regarding your specific issue with the random shutdowns on your Sabertooth Z77. It turns out that different solutions worked for different people however the 1 that turned out to be more common and kept popping up was RAM causing the issue. So I suggest you remove your RAM and start your system up with just 1 stick of RAM. Keep the 1 in there for at least a day so see if the issue re occur. If not add another stick and so on just to see if it is in fact some compatibility or timings on your RAM that is causing it

Please do let me know what the outcome is as it would be interesting to know because on my CROSSHAIR my system is fine under the T2 RAM setting in bios, T1 would not boot and if I'm lucky enough to get it to boot it randomly shutdown and auto restart. It may be worth it for you to check if your bios also have a similar setting.

So far a ran Memetest86 with no errors. I did go in and set my bios memory settings to 1600 ram and not on auto. I will have to play WOW to see if there is an issue still. I am leaning more towards there being an issue with World of Warcraft due to many people having the same issue while playing it. I will keep you posted though.

so I checked the memory settings and set it to manual and set the timming to 2. Has not screwed up yet.
