post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am in the middle of putting together my first computer, but i am stuck. For the top power cables, it is an 8 pin and a 4 pin. The only cable i have is a 4+4 pin, so how would i go about hooking it up? is the 4 pin optional? THanks for any help

Sin, why am i experiencing some sort of boot loop, board powers on and off on for a second off, again and again??? It was working last night. So frustrated, i tried clearing cmos, i have the 4x4 cpu power in.

Are you overcloking? what do you mean boot loops? does it not post? please be descriptive as there are no know boot loops. only time a board will loop is for a few things. Bclk training is what allows 110+ base clock on air it requires many loops depending on your CPU and BIOS. ud3h for instance wont loop when you set bclk but its also limited to 103-5 like the majority of other boards. When i say bclk I don't mean the dividers.

please try to als enable single bios mode switch i always use it to disable dual bios. also on a cold boot it is okay for the board to try multiple times to start when its overclocked, however if. it doesnt start then your oc isnt good.

mine was doing a power loop too when i was getting errors 15 and 19, it would turn on, flash the error codes, then turn off after about 10 seconds. then it would turn on again after about 5 sconds and repeat it. I think i need to RMA it, but i am going to call Gigabyte tomorrow and see what they say
