    I left the clear Cmos jumper on all day and still no good, tried the power button tip several times, no change.

    Tried a new cmos battery as well.

    I'll have to check to see when I bought the board and how long the gurantee is, may be able to RMA.

    Might upgrade to an i7 either way, but I won't be getting another Gigabyte board, couldn't bare the thought of the dredded rebbot cylcle coming back, seen many posts on here complaining about it.

    Mind you other boards may well do it.

    I'm going to see if I can get an RMA on this motherboard, it was bought new in July 2008 so should still be under warranty.

    I wish I could get an i7 system for $500, just priced 920 DO + Corsair 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz XMS3 + Asus P6T SE and it came to 475 ($778)!

    I've had a email from Gigabyte that says they have found no faults with my motherboard and it worked perfectly during testing, so I now await it's return.

    Hopefully I'll find the same when I test it, I'll run it up on the bench first.

    Since you originally posted this thread, I've encountered a reboot cycle that I couldn't break out of. It occurred when I tried to set my memory timings too tight. I thought after so many failed attempts to start up the BIOS would automatically switch back to default settings, but I guess not. I had to clear my CMOS.

    You're not getting far enough to mess with timings, but have you tried with just one stick of RAM? I know you took out two, but maybe just try one stick at a time, try a couple of different sticks?

    Also, have you tried swapping out the memory for this one from your other PC? I don't recognize the brand in the desktop, and 5-5-5-15 are pretty aggressive timings. Sounds like it worked at one point, but maybe the memory has just gone bad.

    Things to try when you get the board back.

    Hi Sngbrdb, you don't recognise Cellshock memory

    I once had to clear the Cmos when I was setting up the memory, but since then it's been fine and benched/stress tested fine, only time I had a problem was if I used the reset switch or on occasion if I altered a setting in the Bios.


    If it don't work when I get it back then I will try the components out my other PC, just didn't want to disturb that one.

    i have this same board and i hate it..lol ive run into the same problem your haveing. to fix my issue i had to replace my memory. i had 1 stick that was faulty. run memtest on your mem at bootup and see how it does. try one stick at a time to make sure your getting the right one.

    I do hope it's not faulty memory, it was quite expensive memory and I did have 4GB running reliably at 1100Mhz @ 5,5,5,15.

    Personally I think it was just going into the Bios that upset it, as it failed immediatly after I'd gone into the Bios.

    Will have to see when I get the board back.

    is it a 2x2gb kit or 4x1gb?im sure you told gigabyte your hard ware you are useing. i know they asked for mine when i rma'd my board back. they will put the same stuff you have on the board and test it. if they didnt have any issue's it could just be the mem being faulty. once you get it back run memtest on each stick. id do them 1 at a time so you can see if each stick is working ok.
