Well, good luck. Hopefully you can get something sorted out.

Did you follow the directions I posted in this thread a few pages back?
Page 44.

This was the only way I was able to get out of my boot loop.

Without knowing if you already tried this, did you try one of the other two recovery methods?

I think the first one was to make sure the board is hard powered off, with the power supply switch turned off, and then hold down the case button, and then flip the PSU switch on in the back. Then, before the board has a chance to boot loop, release the case button and quickly flip off the power supply switch again. Then power on the board and it should do a bios recovery. Make SURE you are using 1 stick of RAM when doing this.

There was another method that I can't remember, but it involved shorting two BIOS pins from either the primary or backup BIOS, which will force it to boot directly from one of the two bioses. I don't remember which pins, but they were either pins 4 and 5 or pins 5 and 6 it's pins 6 and 7 along the primary BIOS to make it boot from the backup. No idea what shorting pins 6 and 7 on the backup will do. (These are the pins across from the "1" pin). I know another poster who could not recover from the boot loop, DID recover after shorting the pins, and was able to reflash the bioses.

Wow. I've had my GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD4 for a couple weeks or so and despite my 4.8Ghz stable overclock on the 2600K it appears I'm not the only one getting raped by these boot loops and *****ing about bad overclocks.

Like some others, I turn off the PSU- wait 30 seconds, turn it back on, and I'm golden.
But it's really frustrating.

I have the most recent BIOs as well.
It's a shame after 49 pages there is nothing to help.

Perhaps I'll just never turn it off.

i just got a 2500k combo with the gigabye z68 ud3h board. I oc'd to a stable 4.2ghz and just read about this boot cycle issue. For me it usually boot cycles in 3-4 loops until the computer will start. from seeing this thread is there any resolution for this? i know im better off than someone who cant boot at all but its annoying listening to my computer cycle multiple times until it boots....

I have not had any problems with boot loops.

It looks like you only have one kit of RAM. Someone on New Egg said the following:

"Make sure you are using one (1) kit of RAM if you plan on using XMP. You will likely not get it to work if you try to install 2 separate kits."

XMP has been extremely broken for me on this board.

I'll admit I didn't real ALL 49 pages, but seems like my problem is pretty much in line with everybody else's:

- Enabling PLL overvoltage causes a mini reboot loop at startup - it takes pc 4 or 5 tries before booting up from cold.

If I disable PLLOV, problem solved (sometimes only 1 loop before booting properly). However, here's my problem: Anything over 48x multi, without PLLOV, I fail to boot and the board goes into the dreaded infinite loop.

After recovering the bios multiple times, I give in, and I'm currently on the following setting: 98.2 bclk, 49x multi, 4.808ghz, 1.404 vcore, PLL OV.

This ensures a stable system, but required a couple mini reboots before my pc would fire up from cold. I'm on the latest F6 bios for my P67A-UD4-B3 board, and so far no solutions I guess?

I've tried everything... and nothing is working - Like I turn it on and within a second it's off and rebooting constantly. And I still haven't heard back from Gigabyte about my ticket............. Such a pain in my ass. It's been in a constant loop for the past 5 minutes - this is getting ridiculous.
