That's because you haven't read it thorough enough.

This thread has already given exact details on how and when the boot loop happens and I have eliminated the possibility of it being a memory problem. If you have anything constructive to contribute towards a work around or the possibility of eliminating the problem we be more than happen to hear from you.
Shhhhh!

So instead of taking the time to easily address our question... you decide to dodge around it saying it's been answered before? That's real helpful there AzO, you'd make a great politician... Forgive us for not remembering the exact model number for both brands of memory you tried in this 22 page thread.

Regardless of whether you have dismissed it as a memory issue, we have not. Why won't you just answer the question? Would it not be useful knowing that someone out there has the exact same setup as you - bios and all - and is not facing the issues? Or, is stating your ram just too much to ask for?

And golly.. Heaven forbid that there could be TWO brands of ram that are causing problems... That would probably be impossible. Most definitely inconceivable.

Nice to see someone with a bit of common sense.

Plus rep for you mate.

Although several had admitted they have the boot-loop problems while at the same time some had admitted that they are no longer having these problems. You're the only one still complaining at this point If you ask for constructive advice, then you need to start giving us more concrete info. So it would be nice to know specifically the brand of memory. In your 1st post, you've stated that 6 clients had this problem. Did all of these clients have P67/Z68 mobos?

You're trying to find out what is causing this boot-loop. You've used 2 different brands on Giga's QVL and the boot-loop still continued. This is why xDezor and I are asking for the specific brand of memory that was used. Did you even try Googling just to see if this problem had occurred when using this ram, even with different SB mobos? Researching for the possible reasons can be vast.

Azo,
You have done all of these?:
#1 tried older BIOS or latest beta BIOS
#2 Flashed backup BIOS to the same as the Main BIOS
#3 Disabled Legacy USB support

Regarding to the above, AzO, you were using the Z68X-UD4, right?

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?
Need some confirmation...Are all of these 6 clients using Gigabyte P67/Z68 mobos?

Disappointed that Gigabyte still hasn't gone full UEFI yet.

Dual CPU fan headers for push-pull, very well thoughtout Asus!

No more boot loop problem. Unless Gigabyte gets their act together they're gonna lose a lot more loyal customers in the future.
So all the problems you were still having between post #119 & post #178 was with your Gigabyte X58-UD3R since you had RMA'ed the Z68-UD4, or was it a client's Gigabyte P67/Z68?

Are these 2 mobos Gigabyte P67 or Z68?

Allow me to reiterate, this is a brand new system being booted up for the first time. This system will not be overclocked, it is a general use system. The BIOS is F2 which is the latest BIOS. Reset button was never used.
Is this on of the client's rig?

Don't know about the others who've been trying to follow this thread but I need come clarity.

1) F2 BIOS is the only BIOS for Z68XP-UD4 & Z68XP-UD5
2) Yes
3) Yes

The 6 motherboards I've been talking about are:

2x P67A-UD3R (Intel recalled, one exhibited boot loop)

2x P67A-UD3R-B3 (boot loop problem on both)

2x Z68XP-UD4 (same boot loop problem on both boards)

These builds are casual client builds, no overclocking, other than disabling splash screen and enabling AHCI all BIOS settings are on default. Have tried all recommended BIOS tweaks mentioned in previous posts, boot loop still persists.

RMA'ed one Z68XP-UD4 for a ASUS P8Z68-V PRO, and kept the remaining Z68XP-UD4 to find a solution for the boot loop problem before my RMA time expires.

I have also built two budget builds using H67MA-USB3-B3 which also exhibited the boot loop problem but after a BIOS update (flashing new BIOS to backup BIOS) the problem "seemed" to have gone away.

All boards use G.Skill 4GB DDR3 1333. I have a spare set Corsair XMS3 4GB DDR3 1333 for troubleshooting purposes.
Shhhhh!

try a hard clear of the CMOS, pull the 24 pin out, and then pull the battery out, and then short the battery pins to discharge the capacitors and then clear the CMOS.

Did you try re-flashing the BIOS, b/c here is my question, i don't see people with the boot loops when they are at stock everything. If it was that huge of an issues on all those boards you posted, GB wouldn't be selling any boards. IDk you are getting to so often with so many board, it must be your settings somewhere.

BTW do you make sure to after EVERy BIOS FLASH, to load optimized defaults, save and restart and then change things? B/C there have been very weird problems when ppl do not do that.
