    Random Restarts Solution!

    Hi guys,

    So I have been having random reboot problems for quite a while now, PC would just randomly cut out and restart by itself, no matter what load it was under or what I was doing on it, it was completely random when it would happen. I have a 5820k processor, all of the 3*** series bios's would not fix the issue, also I've been told that 5*** series processors run terrible on 3*** series bios's.

    I tried 0044 for a while and had a few unrelated problems elsewhere with this BETA bios, so I reverted back to the 2101 bios after reading people's experiences with this issue, which I've found to be incredibly solid. I've been running the machine for two weeks and haven't had a single reboot, everything is the way it should be. However I decided to test out the the 3501 to see if the problem would be fixed and while getting the added benefits of having the latest 3*** bios. So far so good, the boot times are noticebly faster and everything is running the way it should. I mean it's been a few hours and seems to be running solid without any restarts. If I find issued down the line I will update you guys.

    So in short and from my experience over the past few months:

    If you have Intel 5*** series processor and random reboot issues USE 2101.

    Or update to 3501 (Latest), it seems pretty solid and noticebly faster boot times, will update as I test over the coming days.

    Or if 2101 isn't an option for you try 0044 BETA.

    If you have any issues or questions please post below, I'll try to help. Thanks!

    Greetings A1337,

    I was also suffering from that very annoying random restart issue! So far the latest bios (3501) seems to have cured that problem. I can finally push my R5E on descent OC speeds and not have the computer restart every couple of hours!!!!

    That's good to hear, i haven't had a single restart either since updating and it seems a lot of people are having luck with this bios version. It took them this long but I guess we can't complain now.
