When people say F9 they are probably referring to Z68X-UD4-B3 not the Z68XP-UD4 that you and I have.

Please let us know if F5 fixes the issue. I run OS X for work on this and updating the BIOS is major pita (there is no DSDT for F5 yet). I don't want to go through that unless it fixes the issue.

I have left my rig on for over 3 days, let it go to sleep, have logged off, have done numerous push-button shut downs and not a single boot-loop (knock on wood). I'm using bios f5 and have not bothered to flash to a current bios.

This weekend I will spend some time and do some OC'ing (for the 1st time with this mobo) & I'll report back if I have any boot-loops.

You're using the Z68X-UD4-B3 though right? The newest BIOS for that board is F9, the newest BIOS for Z68XP-UD4 is F5 which is what he was asking about. I've never had the loop thing either on my Z68X-UD4-B3 but I've never tried overclocking, maybe if I did I'd end up with it, so I'd like to be using a BIOS that fixes the issue before ever trying. You could try overclocking on your old F5 BIOS and then if you get it the boot looping, flash it to F9 and see if it fixes it.

After reassembling, unplugging and plugging for 3 hours I gave up and just RMA'd it and the CPU just to be safe.
I have this problem exactly. Would this be caused by faulty mobo or bad RAM? I tried each individual RAM stick when booting, but to no avail. Probably going to RMA the mobo unless someone thinks it's something else.

I have the same problem guys. It is a ram issue. Go to the mb home website and look at the compatable ram list. If your ram isn't on there the mb goes crazy.

It's not always a ram issue with these boot loop problems. If so, I would be having boot-loop problems since my ram is not listed on their website for my Gigabyte mobo. There are reasons for having boot-loops.

Does anybody take the time to listen to OR talk to Sin0822 about these problems? The guy knows Gigabyte mobos like it's a 2nd language.

It's not a RAM issue, I used a ton of memory that is not on the list and it still boots.

You might want to actually read through the thread before drawing your own conclusions.

My original RAM Kingston KHX1600C9D3K3 IS ON THE RECOMMENDED LIST. Thats why I got it, it had the same issue. I've changed the RAM to Mushkin Blackline, same ****, I still have the issue.

Hey guys. Found this thread via Google while researching a problem that just happened this morning.
I have a Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3, bought a couple weeks ago from Newegg. I had the board set up for a 4.5ghz overclock on the latest BIOS, 1600mghz ram. I had been stable for a solid week, but I decided to try and lower my voltage a bit to see if I could remain stable with a bit lower voltage. I BSOD'ed the system probably a dozen or so times while messing with the voltage.
On the last BSOD the system boot looped. The system currently:
-Fans spin up, no video
-Shuts off
-Powers up on its own, see video (BIOS splash) but can't do anything for a couple seconds max
-Shuts off
-Powers up on its own, no video
-Shuts off
-Powers up with video again for a few seconds
-Shuts off

Then it continues doing this forever. I can't get in to the BIOS when I see the splash screen, and none of the other startup keys are doing anything either.

After reading the majority of this thread, my belief is the BIOS is getting corrupted.

My system is unable to boot AT ALL at this point. I have shorted the BIOS jumper, I have pulled power and battery for various lengths of time, and the system refuses to boot.

I am absolutely disgusted with myself at this point. I should have left well enough alone since I had a stable overclock. But from reading this thread, this seems like a horrible Gigabyte flaw, and while the system crashing because of my tweaking was technically my fault, the BIOS should never ever corrupt like it has here.

It looks like I will be sending the Gigabyte back. I can't decided if I want to do an exchange or refund and get a different brand. From what I am seeing here, it seems like switching brands would be the best idea at this point.

I just wanted to shared my experience.
