Various problems with the motherboard

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My motherboard is a:
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4153#bios GA-Z77X-UD3H (rev. 1.0)


1) Random boot loop - will go to windows.

The computer turn on/off multiple times (most of the time it is 3) then boot to windows. Sometimes it takes a good 10+ on/off before booting to windows.

2) Random boot loop - will go to BIOS (reset the settings)

Sometimes I have to load back the setting for the system to boot to windows. Once it goes to the BIOS and I load the settings it failed to boot with, it will directly boot to windows...!

It was very annoying so I put back the settings to default and the problem disappeared.

I just want to say this problem is OLD, I tried so many thing to solve it. The motherboard doesn`t behave consistently, with the GTX 770 (it was recently replace by a 7950), it wouldn`t fail to boot too much and it would only be 3 times reboot before going to windows. With the 7950, IT IS TERRIBLE, it does it every time and goes to bios so that`s why I put the settings back to default. With the integrated graphics, I can`t say there is a trend.
I doubt the graphic card is the cause but it`s still weird that I was able to notice a difference. I didn`t try to do a fresh bios flash but the problem seemed to vanish with the integrated GPU and would comes back sometimes after slowly and inconsistent.

Obviously, it seems to be a setting I am missing in the BIOS. I tested the overclock and it is fine... Lynx is stable 3+hours. Overclock is only 4.2GHz and I didn`t bother testing it more because I wasn`t able to get the voltage lower than 1.21v (which is too much at that speed). The cpu don`t need more voltage. The memory? Well it does that no matter the frequency/voltage.

Today, I got a red screen (it was red with black noise) just before windows boot (default settings bios).

I am at the point I want to upgrade just to get rid of that fracking motherboard... I had a C2D, i5-750 & i7-870 always overclocked and never had such a strange behavior.

Honest, I would like to believe the overclocking is the problem but it seems that none of the voltage settings are doing a difference (I tried them all, overvolting nearly everything).
I am about to sell this mobo/cpu if this can`t get fixed...
