Guys, I think my board is dead. Debug code 0 flashes for a milisecond and then reboots. Tried with single channel ram, same thing. I remounted the cpu last nigh and I think I bent some pins, (there are at least 4 pins that look bent, or pressed down a bit out of line with the rest) I straightened one of them with a looking glass and a needle but the rest are to hard to re align. frown.gif
Will Gigabyte RMA my board like this?

Try to strait up the remaining pins on the cpu and test it again. Is not the mobo is the cpu i believe.

EDIT: so, fix the pins and should be all good.

Nope, it's impossible for me to straighten those mobo pins...I submitted an email form to GB, I hope I can get it repaired or get a replacement.
I'll be testing my cpu in another board too...

Yep, no cpu pins in the middle were damaged, I cleaned the contacts with isopropyl alcohol too...So I guess it's the board.
I'll know for sure once I test with my former z68 board (I sold it to a coworker)

Cheers people.

Del on bootup gets you to BIOS Setup & Q-Flash

End on bootup gets you to Q-Flash

F12 on bootup screen gets you to boot options/BIOS setup

Do you mean the backup BIOS chip with everything stock?

If you are talking about the second BIOS chip, you use the switch on the motherboard, not a key. CMOS reset just resets the BIOS settings, it doesn't make it back to BNIB settings with the default BIOS version.

This. Might have to try several times, and wireless KB's don't always get initialized in time to get the key sequences in. I keep a standby USB KB for that.
