    Default GA-X58A-UD3R Reboot loop issue

    Upon pressing the power button, computer starts up for appx. 4seconds, then immediately shuts down again. It sits for another 3 or 4 seconds, then starts back up, then shuts down, etc etc. This will continue for seemingly forever. To get it to stop I've got to flip the switch on the PSU.

    I've tried removing various components, unplugging and replugging in cables, different # of RAM sticks, clearing CMOS, etc. Nothing seems to get the computer to stay on for more than 5 seconds.

    I've read some reviews on newegg and plenty of other sites saying that this is a somewhat common issue, and to RMA the board IMMEDIATELY, as there seems to be no solution to the problem. If this is the case, please tell me right away that more than likely this issue isn't going to go away, so I can begin the RMA process right away, and get another GIGABYTE board.

    My system:

    GA-X58A-UD3R
    i7 920
    6gb corsair DDR
    600w OCZ PSU
    XFX GTS250 1gb
    1 sata HD. 1 IDE DVD drive and 1 IDE HD.

    Thanks to anyone with any thoughts!

    Is this a new build, or had you been using it for some time already?

    If this is a brand new build please try clearing the CMOS fully by removing the battery and unplugging the PSU, then press and hold the case power switch for a minute. Then let it sit for about 5 minutes, then put the battery back, plug it in and see if it will start then or not.

    Be sure you have the memory in the correct slots, they must be in the white slots labeled 1, 3, 5 (2, 4, 6 Physical from the CPU)

    Sorry, have to ask, you do have the 24pin and the 8pin power cables connected to the board correct? Can you list your exact PSU model or link to it please?

    If the full CMOS clear does not help, you have the memory in the correct channels, all cables connected to the board properly, then I would think it could be three things. One would be the PSU is not compatible or not good enough for the board, you have a short somewhere, or you have bent CPU Socket pins.

    Have you tried yet with the system out of the case, and OFF the motherboard tray? You may need to try this next, do so with ONLY the CPU/heatink, memory and GFX card, nothing else.

    If you check the CPU socket for bent pins use a bright light and be VERY careful. Take pics and post them here if you are unsure

    Thanks so much for the quick reply!

    To answer your questions.

    - Brand new build. The power supply arrived yesterday.

    - I have tried clearing the CMOS by holding down the CMOS button on the rear, removing the mobo battery, holding down the power switch, waiting appx. 1hour, putting battery back in, plugging PSU back in. No luck.

    - Memory is installed in the proper slots. I've tried 1+3+5, 1+3, and just 1. None of these configurations produce a boot.

    - 24pin and 8pin cables from the PSU are firmly connected. My PSU is an OCZ 600w found here: Newegg.ca - OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ600MXSP 600W ATX12V V2.2 / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply compatible with core i7 - Power Supplies

    - I haven't yet checked for bent CPU socket pins, but I'll do that next. Also, I will dissect setup and run out of case, on cardboard.

    Thanks again for your quick reply.

    Just to be sure, you are using the white memory slots correct? Sorry to ask, but with the change of memory slot configurations from the norm with 775 to 1366/1156 some people still get confused on this.

    Did you also try with only one stick of memory, use any white slot and try all three if one does not work? If not please try that, with no hard drives connected.

    Several issues with that model/lineup of PSU's on X58 here. Do you have a larger or different model PSU you could test with, just in case this is the issue?

    But I would check your pins next if the above memory suggestion does not help, please post pics if you can and or are unsure if pins are bent.

    Unfortunately, I don't think there are any larger PSU's in my home... I always wondered a bit if 600w was enough to run this system, but I figured it had to be... Maybe I'm wrong on this one.

    I'll make sure to check for bent pins tomorrow, and barring that try the whole thing out on cardboard.

    It may be ok, wattage wise, but maybe not. I was more concerned with computability, but wattage could be part of the issue as well.

    So if you have another 500-600W, just a different brand or model go ahead and try that if you do have one just in case.

    One memory stick trick with no drives (HDD or DVD/CD) not work, or did you not try yet?

    No problem!

    I fully understand! Was just asking, talking out loud for things you could check when your sanity permits
