    Default GA-P67A-UD3-B3 Reset and power button issue even after bios upgrade

    Hi all!

    So I have a new build using the GA-P67A-UD3-B3 board and an I7 2600k cpu. I have 2 x 4gb Corsair XMS 1600 sticks, radeon HD 3450 video card and a Corsair HX 650 power supply.

    The problem I'm having is that whenever I push reboot, the system turns off, waits 3-4 seconds, turns back on, get to the splash screen then turns off again, waits and THEN loads up normally. Sometimes, turning on the power for the first time has the same effect but this doesn't happen all the time.

    Now, it was much worse but I read I had to a bios upgrade to F3 which I did. So, I'm left wondering what to do. So far, this issue hasn't affected anything else. No issues working in BIOS. Everything boots fine and all soft reboots aren't affected by the same issue. I was able to do a small overclock and run a stress test with no issue.

    I tested the ram, used a different PSU, even used a reset button from a different case. I cleared the CMOS as per the instructions in another thread here (hold power button for a minute, remove battery and put jumper on the board for 20 minutes).

    Is this still a bios issue? Should I be RMAing my board? I JUST got it? Overall, it's more a minor annoyance than anything and I left my system on for the most part anyways.

    So, I'm open to suggestions :)

    Thanks!

    Have you applied any settings in M.I.T? Is the memory running at 1600 and timings as it's specs?
    With this amount of memory maybe you need a bit higher than default QPI/VTT, try up to 1.2v.

    EDIT: sorry VCCIO for P67, shouldn't need much as 1.2v, raise gradually, but not more that 1.2v.

    I've read on the asus section that reboots are normal to reset the power phases that sandybridge uses and that their will be a bios fix,I don't know if its the same situation for gigabyte but remember that gigabyte has a dual bios and I remember my mb double booting on early bios's but now its fine

    I have it set to use the XMS profile settings in MIT which brought the ram up to the right speed (it was running at 1333) and the timings are correct for the specs. I haven't tried playing with the voltage but I certainly can try and see what comes of it :)

    With XMP on DRAM Voltage should be set correctly but you may want to check PC Health (or wherever it is with this boad).
    VCCIO default is 1.05, so above that and up to 1.2v(some CPUs don't like it too high) but probably need much less.

    Mwave was correct, you should setup a RMA swap for a B3 board (using B2 can kill your hard drives - Literally)

    Is this official or a rumor? If this is true they should have recalled the motherboards not RMA them.
    This is BTW a B3 board.... at least accorting to the thread title.

    A user over at XS forum said he had a WD black drive on a B2 board it started with random disk errors to partitions disappearing to the drive stopped working. RMAed both the the board for a B3 and a new drive.

    Edit did you update to latest bios?

    Wouldn't be the first drive to die, they don't need a particular board for that.
    It is difficult to understand from Intel if the degredation is of the drives or just the chipset performance.

    Same issue here. Same Corsair XMS3 CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 memory. I havent had the cold boot restart for 3 days now since I have disabled the XMP memory profile , dropped the performance enhance settings from turbo to standard. I also dropped the memory to 1333 @ 1.5V.
    I was occasionally getting the cold boot restarts. But now using the above settings it has held either standard stock clocks and when I felt daring upping the multiplier to 45 with a slight increase of vcore on my 2500K.

    After the next bios revision I will monkey with the memory settings. Bios still needs tweaking. Hopefully they will have fix soon.

    PS. Memory has tested fine, Power Supply fine too...just the board is flakey
