    Check the voltgae requirement of your RAM and adjust the BIOS to match that it may help

    I recently purchased the following to upgrade the guts of my computer...
    Intel Core i7 930 Nehalem CPU 2.8 Ghz 4 Cores 8 Hyperthread LGA1366
    Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R i7 LGA1366 X58 MB DDR3 Triple USB3 Crossfire Heatpipe
    OCZ VERTEX 2 60GB SSD 285/275 R/W/MB# [OCZSSD2-2VTXE60G]
    6Gb Triple DDR3 1600 Memory Patriot PSD36G1600KH for i7 Triple Kit


    My graphics card is a Sapphire Radeon HD 4890 1Gb and my PSU is a Gigabyte 720W.

    Here is my fault finding techniques and results....
    So I plugged all my comp parts together, booted up onto Windows7 disc, installed Windows7 onto new SSD, it does a reboot as part of the installation, after booting the BIOS it tries to resume the Windows7 install and BAM, reboots, then after booting the BIOS and trying to resume the Windows7 install, BAM, reboots again and then gets stuck on an infinite reboot cycle.
    I tried unplugging everything except the bare essentials (eg unplug the extra HDDs, 2nd dvdrom, floppy drive, front end USB adaptors) so I just had the SSD and dvdrom and blew away the previous Windows7 install and started again, same rebooting problem happens (reboots when the 4 orbs combine to make the Windows7 logo).
    I tried installing Windows7 32bit and WinXP, same problem (though WinXP gave a blue screen rather then rebooting).
    I tried unplugging the SSD, plugging in the HDD, and installing Windows7 onto my HDD (using same sata port and cables) and everything works fine *strange, sounds like SSD, right?*
    I took the SSD over to my friend's place and he was able to install Windows7 fine on the SSD with his system and had no rebooting problem.
    I took the SSD back to my place (with fully installed Windows7) and I was able to boot all the way to Windows7 desktop but then it rebooted while Windows7 was reconfiguring itself to my hardware. I got back into Windows7 and installed the manufacturer's mainboard drivers and they installed fine, I checked the system info in Windows and it picked up my 6GB ram, I was able to reboot and get back into Windows7 no problem, tried rebooting again, still all good, tried shutting down and left it for 5mins then tried booting back up and BAM, I get the constant rebooting issue while loading Windows7 (again when the 4 orbs combine to make the Windows7 logo).
    I was thinking my system may be drawing too much power (I got 720W) or CPU overheating (my CPU ranges between 46 and 49 degrees and Mainboard ranges between 49 and 52 degrees) but using Windows7 on my HDD I was able to play Starcraft2 against 7 hard AIs (which I won) and that worked fine.

    So in the end, I'm not too sure what the problem is, you think it might be that the parts are just simply not compatible with each other? Or maybe there is a problem with the Mainboard, CPU or RAM?

    Thanks for any help anyone can provide :)
    have you flashed to the latest bios with q-flash first??? also disable any floppy drives in the bios drive A and boot order,disable intel turbo boost and see if it stops boot looping,but first thing is to update the bios

    I agree, it may be due to using an older BIOS what BIOS are you using?

    I'd go ahead and update to the latest, here they are

    Please use Qflash to update, DO NOT USE @BIOS, here is a guide
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...ash-guide.html

    OS Drive connected to the first Intel port, SATAII_0? If not please do, and connect your CD drive to the last SATAII_4 or 5.

    For windows 7 set BIOS to AHCI and install, no drivers needed but you can load the Intel 9.6 AHCI ones if you want

    Hi all,

    Thanks for the replies. I'm at work at the moment so I'll have to wait until I am at home to try them out.
    My current BIOS is FA. I haven't flashed it but looking on the Gigabyte website, the FA BIOS appears to be the latest. I looked at the website LSDME linked and it showed two other BIOS versions but I'm not sure if they are older or newer then my FA BIOS. The linked ones are F6p and FB18. Should I replace FA with one of those?

    My OS is using Sata drive 0. I tried other sata ports but that didn't help. My dvdrom is using IDE (not sata).

    I'll post again once I've tried some more tests.

    BIOS FB18 is linked above, I'd use that if you have Revision 2.0 board which I assume you do since you are using FA now. Revision 2 boards always have F then letter format (FG2), Revision one boards always have F then number format (F12)

    You should check your board PCB for the revision # to be sure, it's printed on the PCB, but I'm pretty sure you have 2.0.

    It may be an issue caused by the IDE DVD rom then, if possible test without this connected or with a SATA CD/DVD drive if you can. As for your IDE CD drive now, be sure it's the only thing on the cable and set the jumper to master or CS and place the drive on the end of the ribbon cable.

    I have the same board and I had this problem in my initial setup. I think what changed to fix it for me was changing your performance enhance settings for your memory to standard in your bios. Also, try manually setting your memory timings.

    I did some more tests but it just got all too confusing for me. I couldn't even say for sure which component was causing the problem. I suspect it is the MB but I was told it could end up being the SSD even though the SSD worked ok in my friend's computer. Personally I think it is a compatibility issue and my computer parts are just not getting along with each other.

    I ended up giving up and giving the whole desktop to the company who sold me the parts. Once I get my computer back I'll let everyone know their conclusions.

    Thanks everyone for the help though, I appreciate it. Will post again soon.

    Sorry to hear things couldn't be narrowed down, let us know what they find out for you.

    Finally got my comp back!

    The tech people told me my CPU overheated but after replacing the CPU with a new CPU of the same type (i7 930) it had same problem. So they replaced the SSD with a new SSD of same type, same problem. So they replaced the Mainboard with a new MB of the same type, similar problem but instead of the boot loop, it just went real real slow.

    So they took out the Gigabyte MB and put in an ASUS MB of similar specs and presto, all works perfectly!

    Must have been a compatibility issue, which is strange because I've had Gigabyte mainboards in the past and have had no problems with them.

    I may have been able to fix the problem with tweeking settings but I was concerned about damaging components or even worse, stressing the components out and the components dieing just outside of the warrenty period.

    Thanks for the assistance everyone, pity I couldn't find out precisely which 2 (or more) components were conflicting with each other.
