    Default Board Fresh From RMA

    Won't POST. It will not let me into BIOS/CMOS setup or anything. When I bought this board it did this. I sent it back to Gigabyte, they repaired it or whatever and sent it back. S/N's match so I know it's the same board. I cannot make it run, it's stuck in a vicious cycle of trying to boot for about 2 seconds each time, but fails each time.
    What do I try now???

    Mobo is Gigabyte X58 UD4P Rev 1.0
    CPU - i7 920 D0
    3Gb DDR3 1600 < Corsair Dominator TR3X3G1600C8D G
    9800GTX Superclocked
    Water - have also tried air..
    PSU is PC Power & Cooling 910W Silencer

    I'm not the guy to help you, but I can tell you that without more information I doubt that any one here can. Information as to your motherboard model would be a major asset. You should also include your power supply information as well as CPU, RAM, and video card info. Good luck!

    Edit: I do see that you have a long running thread that probably contains all of the relevant information somewhere in it. You should still list your specs here as most people are not going to search for the information required. A signature with your specs may come in handy if you are only currently concerned with the system at hand.

    If you just recieved it back from RMA, unless gigabyte were negligent, you can't really say the board is known bad. If they tested it and had it working then the oposite is true.

    Regardless of the PSU and RAM being known to work on another board, they may very well be incompatible with your UD4P.

    The only way to really confirm the board as faulty and get another RMA is to swap out as many components as you can. It may be difficult to get hold of another COU to test, but RAM and a PSU should be relatively easy.

    Also try booting with just a single stick and no disk drives connected.

    Step by step testing like this is the only real way to find out for sure. Otherwise you may assume it's the board and keep RMAing it and having the same issue until you get tired and potentially waste money on another brand/model.

    I know it's anoying, but step by step testing is the only way to go. After you do that, if it still doesn't work, I'd really complain VERY strongly to the place it was RMA'd to, as in this case they obviously messed up if all the testing draws a blank.

    I had 2 boards exactly the same. PSU, RAM and CPU, vid cards all worked on the 2nd board (took it up to 4.2Ghz) but not on this board.
    I'm going to complain very loudly, yes indeed.

    Well, I sent this motherboard back to Gigabyte again and just received an email from them. They claim it's physically damaged and the warranty is void. Included a picture of the screw hole next to the Front Panel Connectors that is supposedly damaged. Now then, I only had this board in a case once, and I'm not famous for torquing down screws on mobo's so that it does damage.

    I consider this bacically the "shaft" and replied that I will never buy another Gigabyte product, ever.

    'Nuff said!!!
