Gigabyte P67/Z68 boot cycling problem - Page 38

post #371 of 810
I think it means waiting for ME ready....to boot loop.

On a more serious note I don't think it's a RAM problem. What kind of RAM are you using? It would help if you posted your specs.

Just checking in. My UD4 had this horribly. So bad, I was barely able to flashthe BIOS, but once I flashed to F3 bios, I've NEVER had a single boot loop (aside from the normal BCLK setting boot loop). Not ONE problem again since flashing, whereas before it wouldn't turn on for anything, one lucky CMOS clear was able to get me into QuickFlash.

Yeah its difficult to google that

Its not the ram however I tried another fix and it seems stable now. Hopefully it will stay like this.

ME= management engine (firmware). Not sure what's going on there...sounds like it needs to update the ME driver. But it shouldn't do that if the backup and main bioses are identical.

For some odd reason when I uplugged my minidisplayport and used DVI or VGA that error never came back, well so far anyway.

Just loaded f8 seems to be a noticeable upgrade.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I did eventually RMA my z68xp-ud3 board for a replacement and this one seems to be running fine. No boot loop issues (although I'm staying away from the reset button as some others have suggested) and I'm happy it's smooth again.

Thanks for the help and if you buy a board with this problem return it! I think a lot of people are convinced they are stuck with it because it's a Gigabyte problem across the whole line but I'm here to say that's not always true. Just return it or send it in for warranty and get a replacement.

Good luck everyone.

And remember that if you see any dick moves... laugh, vent, and vote about them on http://dkmvs.com.

And once you get a good flash in with incompatible RAM (what the issue was) then it's a good idea to flash it a second time because that initial flash can be corrupted in the flashing process. It's a much better solution to use working DIMMs for the flash then place screwy ones in with the new BIOS. Either way if I got a good flash into the EEPROM with screwy RAM I'd do it a second time just to be certain it took properly. You could also just dump it and do a CRC on it.

If you read my first and second posts I have built a little more than 30+ builds just for myself in dealing with this issue with MSI gigabyte Asus AsRock boards and everyone of them have one issue or another related something to this. Some of the issues for sure are memory compatibility, some are the uefi bios or bios' in general not working properly but seriously when you use the best of the best components in the world and you can't get a stable NON-OVERCLOCKED rig because of the motherboard you have to start looking NOT at the manufacturer and start asking questions of the implementation, it simply just can't be pointed at gigabyte or any one manufacturer. The fact that you state you have had problems with gigabyte NOT on p67/z68 is completely irrelevant, so have i, I Have with EVERY manufacturer in every chipset before this.

Ever hear of a 780i fiasco called evga, one of the best manufacturers as far as warranty and support is concerned hands down IMO but still problems can occur anywhere that wasn't their fault that chipset was fast and HOT as heck, too hot.

I mean p67/z68 is the MAINSTREAM bro, we aren't even on the enthusiast chipset and all these problems, this just makes me cringe.

I will note however that I have NOT tried a direct INtel skull board with p67/z68 which if my now current maximus gene z board gives me ANY grief I will do that next.

FYI Current setup:

Asus Maximus Z, Corsair Dominator 2000 @ 1333 ( highest stable I can get ) completely subpar and ridiculous, 2600k, Gtx 580 x 3 tri-sli 3gb, NO oc

any adjustment to ram results in blue screen ( third set of sticks, started with vengeance ) 1333 seems stable but every so often black screen video lockup.

NO infinite boot loop yet ( YAY ????? )


The stuff is junk now man thats all there is too it, you shouldnt need to spend 5k AND diagnose your entire rig from start BEFORE you start OC'ing.

I think most of the problems you are having is due to ram. Ram overclocking is a bit more tricky with sandy bridge. I havent owned that many p67 boards, but I have not had a single problem with any of the ones I have, especially asus.

You say my past experience with reboot loop on previous gen chipset boards is irrelevant, but I dont believe it is. Gigabyte has had a multiple problems with all there double bios boards (infinte reboot loop). However, not every single board is effected by this, it seems to be hit or miss.

All Im saying is the boards I have used, none of them have had this problem. Not a single one. (p67 that is. dont currently own any z68 boards). Its always possible that im wrong, but I truly dont believe this is a chipset problem. If you can come up with some evidence pointing to chipset I would reconsider. No offense, but your obviously not the most qualified to determine whether or not the chipset is at fault or something else (neither am I for that matter). This all speculation.

The fact that you cant get your ram past 1333 isnt the chipsets fault. I can understand being upset about the reboot loop, but not being able to overclock your ram isnt the chipset. Especially when the p67 chipset doesn't officially support anything above 1333mhz anyway.

You really have done 30+ builds just for yourself? Im curious, what are you doing with that many computers? Or do you mean, build 1 then sell it, build another, sell it, etc. etc.

AliceInChains I agree 100%

You Intel users have no idea... AMD has been a ***** to set memory for some time... I've only just moved back to Intel from a ten year hiatus and I can tell you that getting higher clocked RAM on AMD requires manual settings, trial and error and a REAL understanding of what the settings do/mean. Sure you can get boards that read XMP profiles but it's hard to find RAM with XMP profiles specifically for AMD and then you also have to have a mobo that supports that XMP profile properly. A lot of AMD boards I purchased in those years didn't even have XMP support so in order to run higher clocked RAM you have to set it all manually anyway...

With SB Intel users are now experiencing a more "finicky" memory controller than older Intel SKUs. It's much more sensitive and a lot like the AMD memory controller were you have to set RAM manually when running high clocked RAM. And I'm not just talking x-x-x-xT I'm talking ALL the settings... or MOST anyway... LOL
