Well i'm glad i changed my mind on this.

I ordered an ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 from Newegg (expedited shipping) got it here, installed & working before gigabyte even responded to my RMA request. (which they still have not)

One of the things i like about this board is the D-Sub/HDMI/DVI

Edit: Gigabyte RMA response came in about 10min after writing this post hah

Welp, now mine boots, powers down within a matter of seconds and then reboots, continuing the cycle. I cant even get it to the bios screen before it restarts. I have had enough. RMAing for full refund and purchasing another brand.

Good times, right? What a massive inconvenience. Between this thread and the now 20 1-egg reviews on Newegg you would think Gigabyte would have addressed the problem. Now I need to find another MB.

It was tempting to ship their board back in the ASRock box.

Did you guys happen to try this? Seems like a long shot, but yeah. I fixed mine by pulling all ram but one stick. Others have pulled the cmos battery. I do agree with you guys though: It's pretty pathetic how big and widespread of an issue this is, and Gig has not fixed the problem.

SOLUTION:
Disconnect the reset cable power pins from the motherboard. This will solve all your problems, the only downside is you can't use the reset button...but I never used it in the first place so this is a great solution. This worked for me and many others...Good luck.

I believe I've tried every instance. I was able to finally get it to boot and stop at the BIOS. However, neither my USB or spare PS/2 keyboard could be initialized to run any commands at the prompt. This lead me to do a manual restart which re-triggers the boot loop. I then have to go through the process again of unplugging PSU, reset CMOS jumper, pull CMOS battery, press and hold power button, and then repeat the order. I also tried pulling the reset switch power cable to the front of the case, which didn't solve my problem either.stitchfacesmiley.png

i5 2500k,
8gb Kingston Hyper X (2x4gb)
ga-z68xp-ud4 revision 1.3
Built the machine about a month ago, immediately setup a small overlclock and been fine until now.
Just randomly started boot looping - removing one of the 4gb DIMMs fixes the problem, then I boot into windows, shutdown reinstall the 4gb DIMM, boots to windows and runs just fine. Then after a shutdown it does the exact same thing, starts bootlooping. - both DIMMs work fine by themselves in all slots, and I get the same issue if I populate any combination of slots with both the DIMMs. I've even reverted the bios to all factory settings, flashed the bios - no joy. Perhaps it is just a RAM issue and I should try a different pair of DIMMs. - not so easy just where I am now however. Turning it off at the wall etc makes no difference, once it fails to boot with both sticks of RAM installed nothing short of removing one will get it booting again. I should also mention that it only starts boot looping when I shut the PC down, using restart is fine.

Have you tried the updated beta BIOSes?
