    I have a problem with either my mobo or my cpu... not sure. Please help

    I have a gigabyte x58a ud3r rev2 and a xeon x5670 cpu. they worked flaulesly for about 2 years. I then upgraded to a new case and rebuild everything into that(Lian Li A71).

    But now the system wont start up at all... It just powers and immediately powers off then on again then off again and so the cycle continues. I've stripped the pc completely and have tried to "boot" with the motherboad on an open table to make sure there are no "shorts".
    The board still contiues to do exactly the same... At this point I've given up and I think the mobo is dead...

    I've gone and purchased a Gigabyte x58a UD7 rev1 and 920 cpu and new memory(corsair vengence 12gb 1600mhz. I then tried to use the 920 in the ud3r but the same issue continues... So i then proceeded to try and used my xeon x5670 in the UD7... The Pc powers on correctly but does not post... the LED poster on the motherboard displays "C1".

    The manual says that C1 is a memory issue, however I know that the ram I've used is working properly. I've run the UD7 with the 920 and had how porblems with it with Kingston hyperx, Ocz platiniums, corsair vengence etc memory with no problems. This "C1" error only occurs when I put my xeon x5670 in the board.
    I'm now starting to think that my ud3r and xeon cpu are dead :(... is this possible?
    Both motherboards have been flashed to the latest bios's(obviously the ud3r was flashed a couple of weeks ago and it was working fine up untill rebuilding my case).

    Does the C1 led code indicate a faulty processor?

    I'll be RMA'ing the UD3R next week, but I do not know how rma the cpu as I'm not sure if its Boxed or OEM... it was bought second hand.

    Don't know what to say other than you will have more luck being seen if you start a new thread...this one is about a different problem...a loss of function after a BIOS upgrade...your hardware is different and so is your problem so it's probably best to start a new thread.

    I have a couple of suggestions remove cpu check for faulty, bent, or broken pins. This requires a good light source and specs or a magnification. Clear CMOS

    This can be done by overclocking the cpu to allow the memory to reach its full speed. Unless you are running some really memory intensive program in daily use you wont see any benefit going from lets say 1600 - 2000.

    Also higher ram speed = higher qpi/vtt voltage. More physical ram will require more qpi/vtt.

    This also could limit your overclock. Even if you had 6gb of 2000mhz ram your overclock might be limited to around 3.6-4.0ghz to run ram at full speed, depending on your cooling.

    That being said alot of users have found slower ram (ram rated at 1333 or 1600) that will overclock to either 1600, 1800, 2000, or beyond.

    Thumbs up Re: Welcome to GIGABYTE Technical Support!

    Hi everybody, first time posting.

    I need some advice on a bad bios flash on a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Rev. 2.0, I flashed it with the F9 bios using a floppy disk, according to q-flash utility it all went smooth. On restart all it did was go to a black screen, i get no video nothing except spinning fans. I did the bios flash in haste(I know stupid), should of researched more but I was really frustrated with the damn computer. I was getting lockups in video games and I thought updating the bios might help the problem, but I already figured out that it wasn't the motherboard but the video card, it was overheating, even though the temperatures read normal.

    I read the thread "A How to ~ Q Flash Guide" by Lsdmeasap, after bricking the motherboard unfortunately, I noticed that flashing the bios in these boards is more involved than just flashing with floppy disk and restarting the computer. The guide has a section about trying to recover from a bad flash but i'm not sure it applies to my board because it talks about an award bios file and I don't see no award bios file on the download from the gigabyte website.

    I have tried clearing the cmos, removing cmos battery for a whole day and it's still dead. I tried a blind flash but it didn't work, i don't think i was doing it right anyway.

    So what are my options guys. Thanks

    only lsdmeasap knows the correct way to unbrick a mb bios,trouble is i dont know when he'll be back,i wouldnt mess yourself as if you touch the wrong pins it can wreck the bios chip perminantly,i would try pm'ing lsdme and wait till hes back but have no idea when that will be,if your mb is still in warranty you could rma for new bios chips to be soldered onto the mb

    i wish they would make the bios chips pop out like asus do,then you could just buy some pre flashed chips and pop them in

    The unbrick motherboard procedure can only be tried when you have two separate bios chips on your motherboard.
    Your P35-DS3L board only has a single bios chip (1 x 8 Mbit flash).

    We might be able to help you if you create your own thread in the Gigabyte forum.
    This thread is not a good place for this type of procedure for a single motherboard model.

    Was thinking of buying of buying a GA-P67-DS3-B3 but see there's a rev. 2.0 available as well, does anybody know what was fixed and if I'm better off to stay away from the rev. 1.0 version?

    And what's the difference between a GA-P67-_DS_3-B3 and say GA-P67_A_-_UD_3-B3?

    The GA-P67-DS3-B3 isn't represented in the BIOS topic, no _DS_ boards are.

    Right now I have a EP45-DS3 that I'm happy with so it doesn't feel like the DS versions are bad boards.

    And the RAID, is that Intel RAID on the 6GB/s ports?

    Is there any difference between the Realtek ALC889 that the GA-P67-DS3-B3 has and the Realtek ALC 889_A_ that my EP45-DS3 has?
