Hi, I've recently built a new computer with the following specs:
MB: Maximus Formula
CPU:E6850
RAM:2 gig corsair ddr2 800
VIDEO: ASUS 8800GT
HD: 500 gig SATA2 and 80 gig EIDE
SOUND: SupremeFX2
CASE: Antec 900 running with 5 fans
PSU:850 WATT OCZ Gamestream
Comp temperatures: CPU 23 to 27c, MB 22 to 26c, NB 30 to 24c, SB 28 to 32c, Videocard 40 to 45c.

Problem: When PC was built, had bad RAM, exchanged them and everything was working fine. Then about 1 hour ago, booting my machine and got the following message at boot; Chassis intruded: Fatal error...system halted. Restarted my PC and it booted to Windows with no problem. So decided to restart/reboot and still no problem. After reading a few posts where people are completly stuck at the boot start and no where else to go, why was I able to reboot and not have the message again. :??: :??: :??: Is this bad where I should consider RMA my mobo? Could this could of been just a flook?
Hope I can get good news. Thanks.

Will try tonight to disable it tonight, thx for the quick response. I guess it;s not a very important feature that you need if you disable it. Why have it in the first place.

Hi, I haven't had the message re-appear for 2 days now so it seems everything is aok. Will continue to monitor, but most likely (i hope) this was just a 1 time thing.

I have the exact same problem with my p5k-e(no wifi), every time I try to install different ram or overclock it gives me the chassis intruded error then I have to reset the cmos and I can boot to windows with stock(more degraded than stock) settings. I'll keep trying to fix it and report my findings
