    Exclamation GA-X58A-UD3R Endless Boot

    Hi everyone,

    Having a hair-pulling problem here: the endless loop. The issue is actually two-parts.

    Part 1 - A few weeks ago

    Installed new graphics card (replaced eVGA GTX 460 with Gigabyte GTX 470), 4 more GB of RAM (same brand and model as the stuff I had in there) for a total of 8 GB. Worked GREAT for a week. Leave it on all the time so it goes into sleep mode over night.

    One morning, came to wake it up and computer reboots. I hear the fans spin up for a second and then die. A second later it repeats. I open the case, and try it again to see what's going on: the LEDs on the motherboard blink to life and fans come on for a second before they switch off and repeat the process. I cannot turn off the computer unless I switch the PSU off and/or unplug it.

    I then read this: Fixing Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R Endless Reboot Issue Adam's R&R and try clearing the CMOS using the button on the back. It works (though I never see the CMOS screen)! Turns on and am able to use my PC once again.

    Part 2 - Today

    In the middle of a particularly excellent game of Left 4 Dead 2, the computer just reboots. This time it goes all the way to the loading Windows screen before everything shuts off and it begins to boot again.

    Tried resetting the CMOS using the button on the back like before - no difference (except the screen shows up - no matter what I choose it's always the same result).

    I am pulling my hair out here! This is incredibly frustrating. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    So nothing shows up at the mo? No bios screen?There is no cmos screen btw,you can try removing the mb battery for 30 mins to clear cmos longer,then set your qpi/vtt voltage to around 1.35v,maybe more with 8gb of ram,this should cure the random reboots ect

    So it was fine before upgrading the ram and GPU?

    and how are you running 8GB of ram? are you just running Dual channel? Heard of this but personally never seen anyone do it. I'd guess the 3rd pair of slots are not populated?

    What is the RAM voltage and timings set to?

    Also what Bios version are you running? have you done any updates since buying the board?

    Please try with one stick of memory and see if you can get into the BIOS.

    If you do then wait for more help with your settings, it sounds like you are not very stable.
