[I did not read the all the article but in case this might help it is also possible the the motherboard only uses DD2 and not DD3 I think the maximum it supports is pc-9600 1200 MHZ. Try changing the Memory.]About 6 months ago I purchased and built a new machine parts included:
Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066
BFG Tech BFGEGTX260896OCE GeForce GTX 260
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 Yorkfield 2.5GHz
Antec Basiq BP500U 500W PSU
and Gigabye GA-EP43-UD3L
The system has been great for the past few months then all of a sudden last week I woke up to the machine continually restarting. Now when I turn it on, it will post and sometimes start up windows. After less than 5 minutes it will automatically restart and continually restart without posting. (the fans will stop, the "phase leds" will turn off, then everything turns back on and the process repeats)
I have played with removing the memory and re inserting it. I have dusted and cleaned the system. I have also reset the BIOS and removed the CPU and videocard just to see if reinserting hardware would fix it.
It will sometimes post and let me get into the BIOS for a few seconds if I let it sit for approx. 30 mins.
I am pretty sure there must be something wrong with the motherboard, but I wanted to see what you guys though before I tried to RMA it.[/QUOTE]
