I had exact same issue with my UD5 4-6 boot loops random. When it booted it worked perfect. It really drove me roun the bend. I had to return UD5 after 3 months lost plenty sleep aswell. The guys i bought the mobo from could not give me a refund but they offered me a credit note. So took plunge on i7 3770k. Also bought another psu which was never the issue. Luckily i jus sold my old psu today.

I wud deffo try a mates PSU if you can jus to rule out the psu.

Hey sin, thanks for replying.
 

I've tried F4, F8, F9 and F11beta (from 2012-09-03). I'll try the ones you suggested as a test and will report back. I uploaded the files you asked for here: http://bit.ly/NAD3iJ

 

if you're relaying anything to gigabyte, I think it's more important to relay my previous long message where I describe all those symptoms in detail. Also note that for this Mobo, CPU-Z reports vcore wrongly under load / overclocked (1.09v when in fact it's 1.35v or 1.47v). AIDA64 shows correct values.

 

I already tried increasing Vtt and IMC voltages. Asus applies 1.15v and 1.10v for those two when running at 2400 MHz, I tried lower, equal and higher voltages to no effect.

 

I've opened both a ticket and a forums thread at G.Skill about this issue: http://www.gskill.us/forum/showthread.php?t=11456

 

They answered both in the forums and via email in less than 12h, and they continued to communicate and suggested a few things. They also just tested the same kit on a UP5 and attached screenshots showing memory testing and SuperPi worked fine. I too can make it to Windows and when I do it all works fine (apart from occasional network issues), including memory, overclock, etc.

 

It's when I send it to sleep that I start noticing the nasty power on issues and boot loops. G.Skill said they will now test the sleep functionality from windows to try and reproduce my issues. I also asked them to try and disconnect everything from the PSU except the mobo and an ssd. I'll be posting the email communication with them on the forums soon if they are ok with that.

 

Cheers.

 

 

p.s. Gigabyte still ignores me ... thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif (a 3rd support ticket was raised more than 24h ago, the previous one is a week old). Gigabyte simply has no excuse for ignoring their paying customers for so long - a week without replying is unacceptable. Three weeks (my oldest ticket) is a resounding statement of disappointing behaviour.

 

"they might not have your exact setup" -- still not an excuse for not replying to at least suggest a few things or to tell me they're looking into it. They can at least try it with a setup close to mine (UP5, 3770K, 256 GB SSD, nothing else connected to the PSU).

 

Even Asus, who is famed for bad tech support, replied to all my support tickets in time, every time (weren't able to help, but at least they replied).

Thanks. I now have the UK phone number for Gigabyte support. I might try and call them. I sincerely hope I will get to speak to someone who has a clue.

 

In the mean time, I got an old PSU from work, a Delta Electronics GPS-350EB-100A, which is 350W ATX v2.0.

 

Powers on fine when only mobo and ssd connected. The PSU definitely makes a difference on this mobo.

 

I did have a boot loop and a 30 second delay in detecting the keyboard at boot time, which were apparently caused by a passive USB hub with a 1.5m extension -- removing that seems to have fixed the 30s delay and boot loop. I swear that this ****ing mobo is possessed or something!

 

Other than that, I did not have power on and boot loop issues but I need much more testing and also to add back all hdds, fans and pump and test away with xmp, overclocking and sleep states.

Hi Sin im lookin for another PSU i allways need spare for clients. Im lookin at Corsairs AX850 & HX850 one thing i really need to know quick before i order. When you start up does the PSU fan ramp up full speed for few seconds then go down to normal. I know this is normal on most corsair products (SELF TEST) ive asked corsair they takin lil long for response.

Also you wud be best guy to know this, i7 3770K OC'ed to 4.8ghz - 4.9ghz power consumption is it roun 400Watts ? then add gtx 680 another 200-220 watts. So 850W PSU shud be ample im guessin.

Thanx

power consumption on a 4.8-4.9ghz 3770K is under 200W. I use 1000W+ PSUs, but i just do that because that is all I have. A good 650W does the job very nicely.

I know that on the CPU fan it slows down when POST is done and control is under that of the SuperIO. But otherwise yea, no idea about PSu fan.

Sin from ur sig it shows corsair Ax1200 does it ramp up at full rpm when u start PC. I have Corsair H80 watercooler that does it. Also tried mates old Corsair HX800 Psu that also ramps up full rpm at start.

I just wanna make PC silent as poss, i even swapped out the H80 for Antec 620. H80 sounds like its takin off at start. (not mobo issue, its corsairs self test for fan)

ive seen this Silverstone Strider 1200W Modular '80 Plus Gold' Power Supply (not evolution model one before) £129.99 seems quite cheap for 1200w. If the Corsair AX series ramp PSU fan at start i rather not get it.

edit --- i done some diggin on youtube AX series fan doesnt even start until 300W of load. Now just gota find out how loud it is when under 500W of load.
Corsair warranty 7yrs seems to be the longest. Corsair or be quiet jus need to choose from the 2

Should we expect any of these without the TH ports? Those things just glare at me as something I'll never use.

Anyone else have any issues with this board with regards to memory? I have a set of 4 Crucial Tactical Tracer 1866MHz DIMMs. Whey I put any one of them in the board's diagnostic LED starts to flash various codes as it would when it would boot normally. But half way through the LED would turn off and then start over and would just continuously cycle like this.

Machine won't POST and even though the power is flowing and fans are spinning the keyboard and mouse never get any power.

If I pull all the DIMMs out I get a static diagnostic LED error (I think it's 53), which makes sense.

If I take some of my old OCZ 1600MHz DDR3 and put it in the new system, it works perfect. I can access the BIOS and the keyboard/mouse gains power as well as the diagnostic LED finishes it's tests.
