Try booting with one stick and see if that helps. Just curious when you installed the Hyper 212 did you remove the old cooler and clean the CPU heat shield? I doubt it's an overheating issue but could be possible because the chip has a thermal shutdown when you hit 99c.

Um, when I installed the Hyper I cleaned all the old thermal past etc off both the CPU and I also cleaned the HSF (after removing the protective sticker). For this I used my 99.9% isopropyl alcohol.

This is my first time with Intel, so you'll have to bare with me, but whats this heat shield your refering to? Regardless in testing the chip maxed out at 57 degrees, (which is down alot from the 76 degrees the stock cooler managed under Prime).

In regards to the ram, the only settings I changed for the ram in BIOS was, setting 1600mhz and setting 1.5v (which is both stock for the ram).

But this boot loop you refer to, do you know where I could read up on that, cause the problem is very very clock work like I said, it does the same two things exactly over and over again, which does sound like a loop.

I will fuly try the ram when I get home from work, just want to arm myself with as many ideas to try as possible.

Cheers

Um stock, I believe its F10, I havent gotten that far yet (only brought it a few days ago)

I did reset the CMOS using the jumpers, but I have yet to remove the battery, would that be another plan of attack? Or does the jumpers do the same thing?

i like removing the battery because then i know that it will reset instead of do i think it will or not. but about the ram being bad are you sure that both sticks are inserted all the way?

Well I havent touched the ram, and it was running for a few days so??? lol.

I just read up on that boot loop issue, it sounds almost exactly like what Im getting, so at least now I know its not really my bad haha, Ill try a few things suggested there, but if it doesnt work then Ill just be returning it.

you can also remove the battery and start the computer up. for my motherboard this flashes the stock bios over from the backup bios and then i the computer down and reinsert the battery and it boots up fine. now ive only done this once and im not entirely sure it would work on your board as well but it could be worth a try but i wouldnt do that very often as flashing the bios can sometimes messup

I have similar problems before. You need to be patient and isolate the rogue variable. Have a friend that also build pcs? Bring him over with what ever compatible parts he owns. And swap them out one at a time. The will help u narrow down to the specific part with the problem.

1. You should take everthing out of the case.
2. Set the mobo on the mobo box and test everthing from there.
3. Reset all settings on the mobo.
4. Use only 1 stick of ram. Alternate them see if they both fail to do the same. And make sure ram areplugged in firmly
5. Reset cmos.
6. Reset anythin u can possiblely reset.
7. If u can go to ur local best buy buya newset of ram and pluginto the computer. (return it later)

it sounds like its a ram problem though good luck:thumb:

Thanks for the ideas. That boot loop issue sounds identical so Im going to try those fixes first, but I will most certainly be trying all this if nothing else works.

Especially the boot without CMOS battery idea, that sounds good. I will pull everything out tonight if these fail.

Hi all.

Tried all the above, but sadly couldnt fix it, returned it to my shop (they are awesome) who tested it immediately gave me a replacement right there so I was happy.

However got a few other random questions now...

Firstly - There was a faint whine when the CPU is at Idle on the new board, now I googled this and found that it randomly happens on many boards, and the fix was to disable C6, which I have done and its gone so yeah. However is there any other fixes for this as I kinda like the C6 features and it leads onto my next question.

Secondly - Somethings a bit weird with the BIOS on this new board, in BIOS the multi is set to 33, which comes out at 3.3ghz stock right, ok thats no problem. However in CPUZ and even in BIOS it shows the CPU as at 3.7ghz which I found is the turbo setting, which is also odd cause on the old board the turbo setting was 3.4.

Any idea whats going on here? Like not that I dont like 3.7 getting an extra 400mhz for free isnt bad lol, just like i havent set that and its not whats set in the BIOS, and with C6 off its sitting at 3.7 all the time, I havent stress tested it yet (since I just got it back together), but yeah is that healthy? How does the BIOS decide the turbo frequency? And I thought it only went to turbo when it was in use? With C6 shouldnt it just sit at 3.3 and then when in use turbo up?

Thanks in advance.

Edit I also noted that the Vcore in CPUZ is sitting at 1.32v, which is miles above the 1.2 stock.

well your first question ive never heard of that happening before so i cant help you there and for the second question i noticed the same thing when i was rebuilding my rig and building my stepdads rig that my coretemp widget would say its always at 3.7 but cpuid would show it fluctuating so im not terribly worried about it. for the vcore you may be looking at the vid. if you really want to spend the time throw it down a notch and see if itll pass a quick stability test or you and just throw the multiplier up a level until it wont boot properly or pass prime95
