    Exclamation GA-X58-UD3R reboot cycle, no POST

    Hi! This is my second system, built by me(in late dec 2009). You can see my specs in my signature. All but hdd and dvd rw were new when I built the system. A few days ago when I started my computer it didn't POST and went in a reboot cycle.
    I tried to find a solution reading similar threads but I haven't found one.

    So until now I've tried some things with no success:

    -I reconnected: front panel cables(pwr, reset, hdd led, ...), CPU, Graphics card,
    memory modules, all PSU cables. I don't see any bent pins on CPU socket
    -the graphics card works (I checked it at my office), monitor works too(used with laptop and external stand alone TV tuner)

    -I tried to see if computer will post with reset button disconnected
    -I mounted the graphics card in the other PCIe slot
    -I tried to boot with only CPU, one memory module in every white sockets, with every module
    - I cleared CMOS (with screwdriver on CMOS jumper pins for several seconds; I took out the battery for over an hour and I kept pressed the power button for 2 minutes)
    -I got out of case the motherboard and tried to boot(again, only with graphics card, memory module, and cpu mounted)

    When computer powers up all the coolers are spinning. Also the phase LEDs are all lit.
    I tried to boot with one memory module in the blue slot. It didn't go in boot cycle but still no POST

    I don't have a spare PSU, CPU or other memory set to try.
    I don't know what bios do I have(I never did, never want to update bios)

    I didn't change any voltage settings in bios, no overclocking.
    First I thought it was the PSU, but now I don't know what to think.

    In games my system was stable, but I remember that sometimes when booting, before post, it restarted, just like now, but only once.

    Maybe I should have done some settings in bios to memory; maybe these memories (with stock settings) stressed the slots ?
    I don't see any damage on the motherboard.

    I am really lost with this one. I don't know what else to try.

    Thanks for your patience! :)

    it wont work with ram in the blue slots it must be in the white only unless you have more than 6gb of ram,tried with just one stick of ram in first white slot from cpu socket?? test all ram slots this way and all ram modules one stick/slot at a time,tried with another psu????

    I tested all memory modules with every slot, one at a time. still rebooting
    Unfortunately I don't have another PSU, and I don't know anyone with new computers and powerful PSU's.

    But, if the PSU is what causing this, it is because it's a faulty one, or because it isn't compatible?
    I did an online power supply calculator test and these are the results(I don't know how accurate this is; used 90% system load and 25% capacitor aging ):



    and the specs from Antec web page for this PSU are:




    I don't know how to read this table, don't understand those amps

    I might try a local service place, just for diagnose. I will make some calls these days to see what the offerings are.
    Now I have to go to sleep, long day :D
    Thanks again! :)

    was the computer working before?? has just suddenly stopped booting up??those voltages look fine to me on the 12v rails,650w psu is fine powerwise its just finding the brand that will work,i know ocz and zalman psu's dont like gigabyte boards but i cant say 100% that your psu is faulty,mines only a cheapo brand off ebay an alphapower 1050w but it works flawlessly

    the computer was working before.
    I just shut it down in an evening, and the next day it didn't start. I didn't kick the case by mistake or something like that, and it stays on stable ground.

    Without access to another X58 board you can never be sure what it might be, since you can't test all the hardware on another working board.

    I can show you how to short the MAIN BIOS chip and see if this corrects things if you want, otherwise you will need to RMA it sounds like since you have thoroughly tested everything properly.

    Hey, when you tested outside of the case did you take it OFF the motherboard tray? Just checking

    Also, can you test your hard drives, PSU, and GFX card in another system to verify they are not the cause?

    Hi, me again. I thought I could bring you updated news.

    So, here's what I've done until now:

    I took the computer to a local service. They said that it was a faulty MoBo. They said that they checked everything (everything but the CPU). And they also said maybe it was a chipset problem, an overheat or something like that. I didn't trust them.

    Anyway, I decided to send the MoBo for RMA. I got it back yesterday with the answer that the board was ok. So my next option was to send the CPU.
    But, I mounted the board and all the components. The main reason was that I got a speaker, and I thought that I could check the beep/beeps made at start up.

    I powered on the system-> one short beep->windows booted normally. Now, this is like twilight zone for me.

    The system appears to run just fine. The only thing that bothers me is that it takes a wile for the post screen to appear when I start the system(several seconds).

    I will read tomorrow some threads for optimizing, cause I don't know what to check, what tool I should use. I want to be sure that this is not the calm before the storm(reloaded).

    PS: I checked in bios DRAM frequency and it was 1066(instead of 1600), and timings: 8-8-8-20 (instead of 8-8-8-24);

    bye, for now

    you can set your ram freq and timings yourself by adjusting ram multiplier to give you 1600mhz and type in your ram timings,maybe they updated the bios without telling you????

    Great to hear all is working now!

    Ya, maybe they updated the BIOS and then it worked now with your memory? Otherwise, if it is the same board (Did you mark it or check serial # with the one you got back), only thing I can think of would be they updated the BIOS or you had a short or something before?

    Anyway, glad to hear you got it going, post back if you need anymore help with anything

    You're right about the BIOS. Now I know that I have FI version, and according to gigabyte web page this version was released in march 2010. I bought this board in octomber 2009. Mystery solved :D

    And yes, it's the same board.
