    I oc my I52500k to 4.5ghz at 1.29v and everything is stable, I ran Prime 95 but when I turn on the pc, after about 5 seconds it turns off, then after another 5 seconds it turns on again and its booting normally. This is very strange and I assume it has to do something oc. Anyone experienced this?

    I have Asus sabretooth p67 however before oc it started without this issue. So should I rather get back to stock or is this ok? Prime95 is stable for one hour. Temps are fine.

    As mentioned before, it's nothing to worry about. Some boards do this.
