Apologies its set to XMP Profile1, timing 9,9,9,24 1600Mhz 1.5V as per the BIOS.

The settings seem to get 'lost' when the boot loop occours when I check CPU-Z. However when I do a normal windows restart then go back into the BIOS I get the warning screen saying that the system recovered from an OC (which I havent even OC yet) and I check the RAM settings and there all still the same. Reload windows then CPU-Z shows the correct timings. Very frustrating.

I had to rma a p55-usb3 because of a boot loop. Apparently my overclock failed causing the board to revert to backup bios, but somehow the backup bios was corrupted. Nothing I did would stop the board from cycling on or off. Contacted gigabyte and got an rma. They sent the board back in perfect working order and no problems since.

Only reason I ask is i'm running f7 bios and the minute I installed touchbio on restart I went into never ending boot loop. Had pull the power plug and cmos battery and hit power button,hit cmos reset.

Went right in to window uninstalled touchbios never had the problem again.

I had failed overclock for least 7-8 hours trying to get 5 ghz stable never once did I get a boot loop either or had to reset cmos. I hope I got it stable now lol.

But for me it was touchbio.

It does not POST, it makes it to the 'checking memory' stage then keeps rebooting just like everyone else here.

The first time I turn it on in the morning or afternoon it seems to load the backup BIOS which is version F5. The PC will continue to boot loop indefinetly until I unplug it from the wall. I have to wait about 5 seconds before reconnecting then turn it on and then it boots up fine using the latest F7 BIOS.

Current specs:
Intel Core i7 2600K
Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD4-B3
G.Skill Ripjaws X F3-12800CL9Q-16GBXL (4x4GB) DDR3
OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD
Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB WD2002FAEX
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 580 Super Overclock
Corsair AX850 Gold Power Supply

Initially when I first installed all of the components everything startup up fine. I first put the BIOS into 'Load Failsafe Defaults' so it can find everything, rebooted manually set the RAM to XMP Profile1 and checked timings all ok, reboot fine. Installed Windows all good.

However every time I turn the PC off (ie shut down) then turn it back on again it goes into the boot loop. If I restart the PC (within windows restart) it boots up fine.

I have tried to disable Legacy USB storage and even disconnected my case reset switch as per that thread to no avail.

I know within Windows everything works perfectly as I have done Prime95 stress testing and also been able to play Battlefield Bad Company with no crashing so I know its not a cooling problem.

Are people here still having the same issue where its doing the boot loop?
That's exactly what was happening with my UD4 both Z68X and Z68XP.

Cold boot resulting in boot loop, if I leave the computer on or just restart from Windows, it's fine, but once I shut it off and turn it back on a few minutes later, boot loop.

BTW you want to load optimized defaults not fail-safe.

can i ask you what you have your RAM set at?
Problem is, there is no newer BIOS that fixes the problem. There is only one BIOS for his board.
Shhhhh!

That is exactly my point there aren't more BIOSes yet for that board.
There are more than 1 tho.


Anyways try not to use XMP, manually set the settings, or set it to auto and see what happens.

Sweet will give that a try. Sent over an email to the place I got eh board from and requested to swap it over for an Asus board and they said no problem, so will exchange the board this weekend. Very unhappy I have been a loyal GB customer I cant believe that they would release a board and not test it properly. Somthing serious as this I would think they would want this issue sorted out quickly looks like Asus are going to have my money now.

so i read pages 1-15....couldn't go any further...

anyway, i just built my rig last week. Did the turbo boost on gigabyte's Easy Tune6 to 4.1gzh. It ran perfectly fine with stock cooler. Did prime for 9+ hrs with no errors.

Sunday i decided to buy the corsair H50 that's on sale at Best buy to lower my temps.
after installing the H50 my comp went into the loop. Never booted back up.

Had no problems before this. except when i fooled with touch bios to do some OC, it would only do one loop then right into a full boot. Now its just endless loop.

Help
my build was going so well...i tried removin the PSU cables and removing the battery then putting it back and it still goes into the loop.

Does it eventually boot up?
