With your old board you should have read through the threads over at XS as they go through all the BIOSes and find one that helps solve the problem. Its also a problem that comes and goes, as i got a new chip to see how high itd clock then ima sell it like tomorrow and i was OCing all night for the past two nights and I didn't have the issues on the Z68 board.

You also have to realize asus is a MUCH larger company and has much large fan base than any other manufacturer, that is how its been for ages, no company has been able to come close. Asus is also worth 10x what gigabyte is worth and gigabyte is the second largest manufacturer. They literally have endless resources, while other companies do not.
It does not matter Gigabyte has had these issues at least since the Intel P35 chipset. It is a problem. And as long as they still have this same Issue it would be wrong of you and me to recommend their boards over ASUS or other brands who do not have these issues.

Of course, all brands has it's issues, but most can be fixed via a couple of bios settings or upgrading bios.

No matter how you twist and turn this subject, Gigabyte has had this ongoing problem for years. So in my personal opinion it would be wrong to recommend their boards to anyone asking what board they should get. Because there is a very good chance they get these problems with Gigabyte boards.

This is my personal opinion. And as it is now, and have been the last years I will not recommend Gigabyte boards. And as I've said, appart from this issue they are great boards.

um as far as i know this issue has only been present on this chipset, maybe a different variety of it back then, but now they are using a different BIOS company all together. I own many of this X58 boards and none of this problem.

yes i agree gigabyte sucked before X48, but since then they have come a far way. Just take a look at their market share since then, and look at it now, they are still growing very quickly. Honestly with X58 gigabyte had the best boards, and with P67 they aren't doing too bad. This issue is one issue, other companies have their own BIOS issues, that you can just go over to the main screen and look at, or goto hardforums and they are there too. Asus isn't without their own issues.

I am not going to fight fan boys becuase there is no sense in it, these boards are solid, and that is why people buy them, and OC with them and have no problems. A few people have these types of problems and they post, but just think about the thousands who don't/

I have a ton of GIGABYTE boards, and only with the Z68X-UD7 do i have this problem, so I wouldn't say its that common, and BTW many ppl on these boards have GB P67/Z68 boards and dont have this problem. Just count how many do and they will be in this thread, or over int he GB P67/Z68 thread.

I dont compare GB from back in P45/X48 era, becuase back then they were ****, but since then they have really shaped up.

I'd still recommend Gigabyte boards, had quite a few GB boards & never did see any boot issues until the p67-ud4, which was fixed with a bios update pretty quickly.
I've tried boards from many of the manufacturers, Gigabyte is the brand that just works best for me. I've had Asus, Evga, MSI & foxconn as well, yet almost all my records & personal best overclocks & scores are done with GB.

When reading this thread, it is the excact same problems they had back in the Intel P35 days. It may not be as common anymore, but still there are people coming in reporting the same issues. Even on the Later Z68 boards.

Strange... I've been surfing the net for years and years, and I remember the boot loop issues on all these popular Gigabyte boards and every chipset since Intel P35. I own a Gigabyte P35 myself. I was lucky to fix the issue with a bios setting. Had a friend with that same board who was not so lucky.

Excact same issue and symptoms has been going on for years.

Even after copying the new BIOS to the backup BIOS boot cycling still continues. I end up flipping the PSU switch and unplugging the power cable and waiting for a few seconds before the board would boot past POST screen.

Has anyone else encounter this with their new Gigabyte P67/Z68 boards?

I've had 3 builds with other makers, 2x MSI and 1x Asus and those board did not exhibit this problem, both boards are P67 boards.

After I pull the plug it will always boot up without any issues but I'll get the message telling me it automatically reset my OC.

It has happened on bios versions F6 and beta bios F7d.
It seems Gigabyte have these issues in different ways, one way or another.

Just want to report that aside from a few issues with booting from the integrated and dedicated (switching back and forth, expected from new tech), I've experienced ZERO boot loop issues beyond 1 loop while stable and that only happened once. I've booted into Win7 consistently since then.

Let me get this straight, we're talking about when the PC turns on with fans spinning etc and shuts off in 5 sec or so and then does it over and over again right? Never reaching bios or show any indication of life on the screen?? Cause I haven't experienced that, my Z68XP has been good to me.
