Your issue is pretty odd. GB has OC failure prevention, if the board is looping as int he video let is keep doing it, it will come out of it, and if it says OC failed then most likely your OC failed due to memory or something else.
I will report these issues immediately and see what the BIOS guys say. I use 3770K all the time and never had anything like that happen. The 96 post code thing going back and forth just looks like OC recovery, sometimes it takes a few loops as it tests the stability and ability for your motherboard to boot.
The thing is, when the loop happens, i shut down the computer either by unplugging the cord or just holding 5 seconds the power button, after that i hit the power button again, the computer boots and sometimes the OC failure prevention message pops or some other times it just boot directly into windows with my current OC.
Really weird stuff.
I've tried also to leave Memtest86 running for a couple of hours just in case its my memory failing but i had no errors.
The sticks are rated for 1600Mhz @ 1.25v, maybe the low voltage causes some troubles with the first boot because the system is 100% stable (50 LinX runs, 12 hours prime95 27.7).
I'll try to force the error again and provide a better recording.Edited by leoxtxt - 6/1/12 at 5:51am
