    yes move your ram votage to 1.64 it will need that to run at 1600
    and set QPI to 1.255
    if you plan on overclocking you will also need to raise the vcore
    if its booting ok then i would change one more thing
    Performance Enhance = [torbo] or Extreme i have mine set to extreme
    what that does is tighten up timming on the ram

    Hi, I'm a long time reader first time poster.

    I've just built a new system and i'm having some serious issues...i'll try and explain

    System specs:

    GA-X58A-UD7
    I7 980x
    HIS 5970
    Corsair 1866C7 Dominator GT
    Gskill falcon 2 128gb
    Samsung 1tb
    Corsair HX1000

    When powered on the system starts rebooting in a loop pre-post with various error codes like:

    Power on
    c1
    c1
    08
    6f
    c1
    68 (was getting this code before the bios was flashed to f6 to support the 980x)
    Hang

    Manual reboot
    Repeated the above sequence
    Manual reboot

    c1
    Some other codes that are too fast to see
    88
    Auto reboot

    c1
    Some other codes that are too fast to see
    88
    Auto reboot (sometimes it will get stuck in this loop, other times it will do it 4 or5 times and then boot)

    c1
    c1
    08
    6f
    c1
    68

    It's a bit hit and miss but if i pull the power and leave it unplugged for a minute sometimes it will restart and boot into windows fine but most of the time it will just repeat a combination of the above.

    I've re-seated the CPU and swapped the ram into different slots with not effect, re-seated the GPU and checked all power connections.
    I've also tried flashing a few different bios versions (f4, f5, f6)...nothing seems to help.

    I have tested each stick of ram seperatly in slot 2 and run memtest86+ for 4 hours on each stick.
    I have also tested with a different graphics card.
    The CPU can run 12 threads of prime95 for 12 hours without errors.

    I have also tested the motherboard not installed in a case.


    I've requested an RMA but i just wanted to check if there is anything i've missed or not tried.


    Thanks for your help :)

    Give us your full settings in a template from my signature, it could just be your settings.

    Of course you need to use the latest BIOS since you have 980x, that will solve the 68/6b POST Code freeze.

    If you are not setting your own QPI/Vtt, Uncore multi, and Memory voltages this may be the only thing you need to do, auto generally is not going to be correct for all of those.

    So if you had been using auto for everything you might want to hold off on RMA for a bit until we can look at your settings and give you some to try

    did you test each ram stick one at a time in each white slot one at a time?? it will boot with one stick in any white slot if the ram/slot is working

    Just did a Dry Ice session last night.

    I didn't buy enough ice though (Store only had 10 pounds left), so ran out too quickly before I get get in to many benchmarks though. Spent more than half that messing with max Bclk, only to get the same as I could on water!

    Seems there is a 8.8Ghz QPI wall, and QPI Slow mode is not working properly I dont think, not sure. I am talking with GIGABYTE Taiwan about that right now.

    Anyhow, best I could do with the time and Ice I had on hand

    Hi Lsdmeasap,

    Thanks for the reply, much appreciated!

    I was puzzled by the 68/6b error because it first appeared when i was running a bios that didn't support the 980x BUT the sequence i posted above with the 68/6b was ocouring while running f6 and f7h

    Hi wazza300,

    Thanks for replying as well!

    I have tried the 3 sticks of ram separately in slot 2 (first white slot) and was able to run memtest86+ for 4 hours on each stick and 4 hours with all 3 slots populated.
    I'll give it a shot in slot 4 and 6...it's worth a try but i think the cpu and ram are fine.

    yes sorry if its booting into windows with one stick then its ok, try with loading optimized defaults , it will wipe any bios settings so make a note before you do it,and then clear cmos and try with all your ram settings left on auto

    Hi wazza300,

    I should have stated in my first post that after each bios flash i set optimized defaults and cleared cmos data. I also tried fail-safe defaults and cleared the cmos as well.

    Cheers,
    i cant think of what else it could be,have you inspected the cpu socket for any even slightly bent cpu pins? or any hairs or lint in the socket? be carefull not to damage anything when checking and dont let the cpu clamp shut when theres no chip installed as you might get thermal paste on the pins

    I've checked for bent pins and dust/lint/hairs...i guess the last thing to try is bios settings
