    Exclamation NOT POSTING! Gigabyte UD3R Rev2, new build.

    Before i start, i have tried searching EVERYWHERE for a solution. Nothing has worked. Some people have extremely similar issues to what i am having e.g

    First of all, here are my exact hardware specs. I'll elaborate on what i've tried afterwards.
    Intel Core i7 960
    Thermaltake ToughPower XT 875W
    Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R Motherboard Rev2
    Lite-On iHBS212 12x Blu-Ray Disc Writer with LightScribe
    Corsair CMP12GX3M3A1600C9 12GB (3x4GB) Dominator
    Seagate Barracuda 500GB ST3500413AS
    Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB Super Overclock.


    WELL...
    As soon as i press power, it powers up but i dont get any display on my monitor (Screen works, tried it on my laptop before).
    Weird thing is, i had to remove the 12v 8pin ATX cable (located top left of CPU) because when i had it plugged in, i would power on the system and it would reset every 2 or so seconds. Once i removed it, it no longer kept restarting. Now when i switch on it just hangs. Ive tried both PCIx16 slots, no avail. Every fan works. I plugged in a speaker but there is nothing to indicate a hadware failure (bleeps). I have not installed an OS yet (intend to install 64bit win7 pro but obviously cant). I have no USB plugged in, only the HD (Sata3) and i cant see that being an issue although here is where i think my issue may. My PHASE LED is showing (2 green, 2 yellow, 2 red) and my NB PHASE LED [or DDR Voltage] which shows (2 green, 2 yellow). So i'm guessing an overvoltage issue (since they are overvoltage led's)?
    I only have 1 DDR3 in the 3_3 slot (tried 3_1 slot).
    All screws have been fastend in the mobo in the right places, i dont believe its an earthing issue...
    This is not my first build, im not a techy by any standard (actually landscaper) but i've utterly hit a brick-f'n-wall.
    If you have any more questions/answers (i think i've covered everything) please say so.

    Just to be clear i HAVE NOT installed any operating system yet, happend on first boot.

    as you can see in this photo is where the LED's are lit up. sorry for poor quality, was taken with iphone.

    You need the 8pin cpu power plug plugged in or it won't work,unplugging it won't prove anything as the cpu won't be getting any power,you say you've tried booting with just one stick in first white slot from cpu socket? If not try that,next try fully clearing the cmos by removing mb battery for 30mins,if still no joy I would carefully remove cpu and carefully inspect the socket for any bent cpu pins but please take care when checking as they are easily damaged,post pics of the whole socket if you can

    Is it a quad or six core chip? If six core you might need a quadcore chip to enable you to update the bios to one that supports a 6core chip

    Sure thing the CPU cannot work without power, plug the ATX_12Vx8 back.
    Best is to take the MB out the case and bench test it on a cardboard or wood table.
    Try to clear the CMOS for 30 minutes, battery out and CLR_CMOS jumped, all when dsconnected from power of course and discharged.
    If all this don't help try to find damage to the PCB and finally you may need to remove the CPU and look for bent pins.

    Alright well, put it back in and same thing happens (also re attached the 12v atx)
    Although this time i held in the blue clr CMOS button , and it stopped the system from restarting (when i let go it again did the reboot after 2 second thing) but did nothing to the display.

    Any more ideas now?

    It is quadcore, also with the ram i can only have it in 3_1 and 3_3 unless of course i have a triple channel in which case its in 3_1, 3_3 & 3_5 but im only running the one stick to be safe.

    The mb will boot with one stick in any white ram slot,have you tried with another gpu? Or without just to see if mb lights go out? Try that if no luck I would inspect cpu socket

    1. Disassemble the entire system! Make sure that the current CPU is supported by the current installed BIOS version of the MB!

    2. Make sure that the following components are working properly: VGA, one RAM module, CPU, PSU. You should test all of them on another system in order to be 100% sure.

    3. Place the MB to a wooden plate! Connect the VGA, RAM, CPU, and PSU(all the psu connectors, consult the MB's manual accordingly) to the MB. Make sure to connect the additional power connectors required by the VGA! Make sure that nothing is going to move the components from their place while the system it's running. Do not connect the SATA or the IDE devices! They are useless and they are going to complicate things. Reset the BIOS by removing and putting back in the li-ion battery!
    Connect the monitor to the VGA. Connect the PSU to the power outlet!
    Start the system!

    Repeat 3 by changing the slot of the RAM module. Try moving the RAM module to all the available slots!

    IF, but only if you followed 1-2-3 accordingly and you've got no image on the LCD screen, then it means that you've got a dead mobo.
    Next step: RMA the motherboard!

    *MB's led lights do not matter. I've seen many MB's malfunctioning with their led lights on/off. They're just an old and inefficient diagnose system. Debugging the issue by this readings it's a big pain in the a**. They mislead you most of the time.

    Thank you blue_sun, i shall try that now.
    Sort of off topic but i posted this same question on the TechArena forums in their Hardware section and they banned me without a reason. I just like to say thanks for taking time to answer my questions.
    I'll get back to you soon and let you know how i go.

    I have not tried with another gpu, but i disconnected the gfx card to see if it made any different to the lights, as well as rom drives & HD but yeah, nothing. I'll just do a good old barebones benchmark now :)
    I have a feeling that maybe it is either a dead mobo or even the cpu's thermal paste/pins i just dont want to believe it lol.
