Gigabyte P67/Z68 boot cycling problem - Page 45

post #441 of 810
I'm sorry to say that the F5 BIOS did not resolve the boot cycling issue on my Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD5 frown.gif

A very interesting point I noticed while the F5 BIOS was only on my primary BIOS (not backup BIOS) is that the motherboard reverts to the backup BIOS when the cycling issue occurs ... which is what forced me to also update my backup BIOS. Unfortunately, I still reproduced the issue after that.

Finally, I just did a CMOS reset so I'll test a bit more after that and see if it helped at all.

Hope everyone else has more success than me.

No good after the CMOS reset on my board guys.

Also a little question if I may. I have a 2600k and notice with the newer firmware that it is now clocking to Turbo at 3.5 GHz (instead of the stock standard 3.4 GHz). Since I'm using the stock cooler, I really don't want to go above the standard speed 3.4 GHz for now, does anyone know how I can turn turbo off to avoid the minor overclock?

Thanks heaps!

Just in case anyone was after the procedure for disabling Turbo mode (which overclocks a 2600k to 3.5 GHz by default on the newer firmwares), just go to the advanced CPU options and you'll find the option there.

Happy to provide a screenie in case anyone needs it

So they still haven't fixed it? That's laughable, I doubt I'll ever overclock on this motherboard as it seems they're never going to fix the issue and I don't want to have to deal with it.

You dont.need to overclock to see the issue actually, Im running at stock speeds with the same issue

This thread makes me Here I am, after a month with this Gigabyte Z68X-UD4, still using bios f5 and I still have not experienced this boot-loop. I have OC'ed the hell out my 2500k over the weekend (manually), and there has been nothin'...absolutely no boot-loops. Guess, I'm just lucky, huh?

I actually disconnected my reset button after finding this thread. While my boot loop wasn't linked to it, I'm not going to run the risk of causing unnecessary boot loops.

Not sure why you would really need to disconnect it, I just don't use it. Nobody else uses my PC whilst I'm not there really, so it's not like it could happen by accident.

Yeah but I don't have it and it's never happened to me, I don't want it to start doing it if I try overclocking.
