Boot Problems with GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I got my new case and mobo in the mail today and hooked everything up over the course of the day, i didn't notice any bent pins and everything went off without a hitch, i have my crossfire up and running fine, most of my drivers (not the chipset drivers) are up to date.

Keyboard/USB/Mouse/Audio/Video/CPU all works, however i have 2 small flaws both of which are extremely annoying.

1st problem: Every time i power my rig on, all the fans start, power turns on, case gets lit up, then it shuts off. 2 seconds later it turns itself back on and boots normally and runs without any problems. Sometimes it reboots more than once and it gets irritating.

2nd problem: My old bios was super easy to overclock my cpu and i could get it to 3.8 Ghz no problem, however now i'm struggling to get it past 3.2. I can't figure out the bios worth anything, is there anywhere i can find guides to the bios?

In most cases when a system powers up and powers down on boot it means it's trying to configure changes made in the bios. I recommend running default (If you are already disreguard) settings. If that fails reset your Cmos and make sure your MOBO isn't touching your case. Reseat all Ram and GPU's and try try again.

If it changes anything it's only when i either cold boot, or change a bios setting. I can restart to my hearts content and it will be fine, so i'm sure you guys are right. I'm just a lil nervous about flashing it
