It fixed itself when I switched bioses over and flashed the backup to main. Now the backup bios is having the issue but the main bios isn't? This is so weird.

Sweet glad that worked for you. That trick didn't work for me I couldn't even get it that far in the boot cycle. On a good note my CPU should be here Tuesday so I'm hoping to be back up and running sometime that afternoon.

Problem is back again.... After leaving my computer off for a few hours. I think I'll just use sleep mode for now.

I had the same issue even attempting to use sleep mode. I would let the computer go to sleep, I would try to wake it up, it would just sit there doing nothing, I would turn it off, upon turning back on it would go to bootloop for 3+ hours. Only way I could get it to boot was letting it sit for a few hours and then trying again. Then after 3 weeks of trouble shooting the problem I RMAed my PSU and motherboard, Turned out the PSU had a short, and that short killed the socket on my motherboard. Got new PSU and motherboard. set everything up on test bench(the motherboard box) and tried again. This resulted in the same problem. I tested the RAM in another PC and it tested FINE. I then called intel and explained my problem they told me to send the CPU in. I sent it to them, they got it friday today they sent me a new one it should be here by the third. They have already told me by the discoloration on the bottom of the chip that the memory controller had burned up. It seems to be a problem in the design of the i5-4690K, I have been told by intel if this one goes out for a small fee they will upgrade me to the i7-4790K.

Wish I had thought ahead and waited to do my build after skylake had come out :facepalm:

Okay, I have switched ram slots to the other 2x dimm channel. Looks like it's working fine for now. I have a feeling that either A1 / A2 (Dimm 1 / Dimm 3) slot is faulty or my CPU is faulty in a way that the two slots do not work but the other two do.

Honestly, I can't really be bothered to RMA if that's the case. I can deal with two dimm slots working.

it might be the same problem I had. Do you overclock your CPU? if so intel says the first thing to burn out is the mem controller which sucks. intel is good with RMA they are sending my new CPU to me 2 day air through UPS since i sent them mine insured 2 day through USPS.

Yeah, I did overclock my i7 4790K, went up to 4.8 GHz, I usually run it on 4.7 GHz @ 1.3v Vcore, 1.200 Ring voltage, 1.78 VRIN with 1866 or 2400 MHz at 1.5v or 1.65/1.68v.

If I do need to RMA, I'll get a Pentium G3258 as an alternative.

that could spank you if your temps got a little high. mine never got above 65C and it still died due to the overclock but I was pushing a little more voltage 1.34 I think it was the only way to get 4.7 stable lol. Only ran it like that for a while then back down to 4.4 but it was long enough it cause damage.

what are acceptable on air temp for 24/7 on a high oc.
post #2290 of 2500
And the problem with the bootloop is back again. It keeps happening after I shutdown my computer and leave it off then turn it on every single time. This is so frustrating.

When I switch the bios around, it can boot. This is so weird..

Acceptable temperatures for 24/7 on a high OC is no higher than 85C.

If this happens again one more time, I'm going to contact Gigabyte for an motherboard RMA.
