New build bootlooping problem - Page 2

post #11 of 15
The RMA service I sent my motherboard to in Taiwan tested my motherboard and found no issues. So yes they do test the motherboard to see if it works or not. They sent me a report with the system specs used to test it and if any problems were found.

I was just about to take my skylake system apart, so I could test the cpu, when I remembered considering that the memory might not be compatible with this motherboard. The reason I ruled out ram problems before, was because I used a stick of 3200 mhz (might also not be compatible) from my system and I tested the different memory slots. I just finished googling and found a thread (in dutch) from a guy having the exact same problem using the exact same mobo and ram. He basically went through the same troubleshooting steps and eventually bought ram that was on the compatibility list for the mobo and it solved his problem... So, that seems to be the most obvious next thing to test. I am not sure what if I should return the current ram sticks first because it takes time (webshop) and it might not solve this problem after all.

I promised to report back, so here it goes. The board did boot with the 2133mhz ram. After that I was able to flash the latest bios (F3), which had only one release note: "Improve DDR XMP compatibility"... redface.gif. After that I was able to boot with the original ram sticks. Sadly the mobo didn't came with the latest bios (release date 7th of March) and Gigabyte did not flash the mobo with the latest bios revision when I send it back for repair. It seems weird to me that if the release a new bios revision probably to help with these kind of issues, that they don't think that my issue was related. Anyway, I am happy that the system is working now, because I spend far to much time trying to fix it. Maybe someone with the same problem reads this thread I can solve it much quicker than I could.

I tried different slots and sadly it was still bootlooping.

Not sure what you mean.
