The system will not post with the ram in slots 1,3,5 but it will post with the ram in slots 2,4,6. I've been experiencing this issue since I purchased this motherboard.

Any temp under 65C should be fine. I say this because the capacitors are usually rated at 65C.
Overclocked systems will spontaneously reboot because of timing issues. This happens a lot with games because they usually run the computer at 100% load regardless of clock speed.
I think this is because of banked RAM and terminating connections. So the 6 slots are divided into 3 banks. Slots 1-2, 3-4, 5-6. To electrically terminate each bank, there has to be RAM in the second slot of a bank. So if there is an odd number of RAM sticks, that's slots 2, 4, 6. Or maybe 1, 2, 4.
Any more RAM would go into slots 1, 3, 5. Or maybe you would use slots 1, 2, 3, 4. Many mb are really made like this.
As you have implied, the only way to find out about this is to read the mb manual and experiment.
We had a brand of computer with 80% failure rate of the DVD burners. The computers would just turn themselves off. Replacing the burners stopped the unexpected shutdowns and reboots.
Also look for power interruptions, do your lights flicker often?
My guess is it's a RAM compatibility issue.
