I wonder why Gigabyte hasn't fixed such a crucial problem. It's a show stopper problem afterall.
Shhhhh!

I got the same problem, planning to switch to Asus. There is no way you can fix it.

Strange, I've had 4 GB mobos, and I've never even heard of this problem until 2 minutes ago.

I never saw it until the GB p67 board, but a bios update fixed it all up.

yea i just noticed trying to set up SSD caching and didn't have the problem anymore and i kept using the restart button and OCed to 4.5ghz. it comes and goes i guess, or maybe has to do with my OCing. but when you are affected i found that all i need to do is unplug the 24 pin connector while its cycling and then replug in 10 secs and everything recovered.

It is really annoying though. Especially if you don't know the cause of the boot loop, you won't know when it's going to happen again. So the p67 boot loop had been fixed by their new bios?

I'm using the Z68X-UD4 w/ F6 bios and also getting this issue. BIOS settings make no difference, overclocked or defaults. I've tried disabling PLL Overvoltage and the C1 state thing as well. Using memory F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM which I've also tried at 1333. Like many people I have tried so many different things it really just seems like a glitchy BIOS or faulty board. The restart button doesn't always cause it. A cold boot after the PC has been off for some time (1 hr.+) always does. But if it's only been 5-10 min. it doesn't do it.

Interestingly though, it will always boot. It may start and shutdown up to 6 times but does eventually boot to windows. I don't think there's any need to unplug the 24-pin connector. And when it occurs it seems to only reset the CPU multiplier. My XMP setting of Profile1, for example, doesn't change. Nor do any other settings. Seems the board thinks the settings are unstable, even if they're default.

I've contacted Gigabyte about this, even pointed them to this thread. I'm waiting for a reply.

if it eventually boots its not a problem. The cycling we are talking about is when the board starts up and then shuts down over and over in an inifinite loop. If its just doing a cycle 3-5 times its checknig to make suyre the system is stable nough to finish through the POST. When this happens and you plug in a POST CODE card or you have a UD7 you can see the POST codes don't even show up, not even the first code C1. What you are refering too does show a code C1 over and over and then finnally catches and goes through the rest of the POST.

My situation is worse, eventually it doesn't even turn on until i unplug the 24pins
All we can do is wait for a bios fix?
