Annoying problems with the Rampage V Extreme

Hello guys,

I have just not so long ago built my new computer system with a Intel i7 5960X and Rampage V Extreme board
and one very annoying thing I have noticed the board dose is when the board crashes or stalls due to
overclocking instability or failure in which have to manually turn the power off and back on again or if
the board automatically shuts off by itself due to these reasons or any reason, I have noticed the board
will refuse to power up again unless you leave it for a few minutes.

I have noticed it does the exact same thing if the system has been powered up for quite a while and you
shut the system down ether by the normal windows shut down way or by the system power switch.
If you try to turn the system back on again or within a short time of it just been powered off, it will also
refuse to turn on unless you leave it for a few minutes. This is very annoying and frustrating having to
wait patiently for the system to let you to power it back up again.

I was wondering if this is a normal thing on this board, a protection feature perhaps built in or is it not
supposed to do that and it means there could be something wrong with the board.

Does anybody know if it is a normal thing or an issue with the board and if it is normal, is there any way
to get the board to power up a lot quicker when it does this?

If it is normal and it is a protection feature, then it would be great if you could somehow turn it off.

By the way, I am using the latest 0901 system BIOS on the board.

Thank you in advance for your help and feedback on my inquiry.

My MSI GTX980 has no backplate so I could just put a duct tape in between on the side of the DH15. It is a air tight fit but at least it fits somehow.

That is god damn tight man.

On a side note, I find that by design the 1st slot is too damn close to the CPU/RAM area, quite a chore to release the top GPU - quite difficult to reach the Q slot lock thing to release the lock.

when your system failed to boot,
you can see on your motherboard below the right USB socket. (not the digital LED), but the 4 lights LED,
it will show where the failing process at, on cpu, dram, or vga.
you can start tinkering after you know which part causes it.

also, on 0901 BIOS, my OC panel is screwing up, so I had to take it off

I gave 500 euros for Rampage V Extreme in order to pray to God every morning that would boot system without manual restarts.
As you can use fast RAM that you purchased at 3000MHz, or take recommendations from forums better stay on the speed of 2133MHz it is certified, certainly you will still have problems with starting the computer every few days. Option Fast Boot with 3 or more automatic restarting without booting, so called "training", that is very funny fast booting.
