i know it's a bit of an old question.
but, anyway, i'll try answering it.
problem obviously lies in power supply.
8rda+ mobos need at least 250watts to work (that's only mobo and maybe processor+mem)
don't forget that your power supply supplies everything inside the case.
probs with inability to boot for some time arises from lack of power.
so that is why i guess that is the problem.
i had similar probs with 8rda3+
i recommend quality power supply of at least 360W and up that can deliver at least 320W (u can calculate or even measure the power it delivers)
all depends on how many other devices are on that power supply
hope u have worked out your problems months ago :)
if not hope this will work for you. if not for you for others that come accross same prob :)
