    Default Z68X-UD3H-B3 reboots using onboard graphics

    I recently upgraded my system. New components are
    - Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 (ver. 1.3, BIOS version F9 or F10, optimized defaults
    - i5 2400
    - 2 sticks of Kingston KVR1333D3N9 /4G (2x4GB) 1333MHz DDR3
    - DVD LG GH22NS70 SATA
    I also included:
    - HDD Western Digital 640GB Caviar Black SATAII
    - PSU Thermaltake W0151 QFan 500W

    The problem is that the system reboots suddenly.

    During windows clean installation (win7 64 ultimate sp1), the computer reboots during the "completing installation" stage, and I have to reinstall from the start.

    When the installation succeeds, reboots happen rarely without the VGA driver.
    I tried installing only Intel chipset driver ver. 1030, or all other drivers except VGA; in both cases, after Intel VGA driver installation (latest version 2559 from Intel, 2509 from Gigabyte and 2219 that I found somewhere in the web) the system becomes completely unstable. It reboots in 2' max using windows (even if the system is idle).
    No blue screens at all (automatic reboot is disabled), and event logs write about power loss.

    I already replaced the motherboard with a new one (same model), but the problem persists.
    I checked the RAM modules, one at a time in socket DDR3_1, using memtest86+ 4.20 (12 passes each, no errors).
    I tried:
    - Another RAM module (Kingston KVR1333D3N9K3 2GB), and another PSU (Coolermaster 450W).
    - Using another HDD (Seagate 500GB).
    - Downgrading the memory speed in BIOS setting, to 800MHz.
    - Another Keyboard and mouse.
    - Build the system outside the case.
    NOTHING - NO DIFFERENCE AT ALL.

    Disabling C3/C6 processor state in BIOS makes system more stable, meaning that it reboots, but not immediately.

    If an expansion VGA card is installed, I can use the processor graphics with no reboots at all (connecting the monitor cable in the onboard DVI or D-Sub Port, and disabling the expansion VGA via the Windows Device Manager).
    No reboots using the expansion VGA too.

    Is there anything else that I can try, to use the onboard graphics without an expansion VGA? Maybe a setting in BIOS?
    I don't have another CPU to try.
    What else do you suggest to do?

    Thank you very much in advance, and excuse me for the very long (and maybe confusing) post.

    you have windows installed now? if not try with only one ram stick installed,what dram,qpi/vtt and igpu voltages are you or auto is using? set dram to whats printed on your ram module,either 1.5 or 1.66v,then try with 1.15v qpi/vtt and try with one/two/three clicks more igpu voltage and test

    Yes, windows run now with expansion vga.
    I have tried to install with only one stick; sometimes succeeded, sometimes not.
    I'm using auto in every setting.
    DRAM is 1.5V (1.425V - 1.575V) http://www.valueram.com/datasheets/KVR1333D3N9_4G.pdf
    What setting is "igpu voltage"? Maybe "Graphics core" voltage?

    By now I have:
    DRAM: Normal 1.500, Current [Auto]
    qpi/vtt: Normal 1.050, Current [Auto]
    Graphics core: Normal 0.000, Current [Auto] if "Onboard VGA" set to "enable if no ext PEG" (disabled, as it is now)
    Normal 1.050, Current [Auto] if "Onboard VGA" set to "always"
    Normal 1.045, Current [Auto] if "Onboard VGA" set to "auto"

    So you suggest: qpi/vtt -> 1.15 AND
    Graphics core -> 1.060 / 1.070 / 1.080 ?

    thanks for the very quick reply !!

    Try with 1.10 qpi,and 1.70v graphics core,try with dram voltage one click more than 1.5v,then remove graphic card and test the built in gpu

    I tried 2 clean installations:
    1) 1.08 qpi, 1.060v graphics core, dram 1.505v -> reboot at "completing installation"
    2) 1.10 qpi, 1.070v graphics core, dram 1.505v -> reboot at "starting services"

    I believe that it should work with the default values (with the exception that some RAM modules require higher voltage (this is not my case).
    Thanks anyway

    Problem solved.

    I tried one more test, using 2 PSU's working together (my old PSU Thermaltake 500W and a Coolermaster 460W). The system worked fine when using the Coolermaster's 2x18A rails (one for the 24pin main power connector, and the 2nd for the 8pin 12V connector), and one 18A rail from the Thermaltake's PSU for the hard disk drive and the DVD.

    So the problem was the insufficient Thermaltake's 3rd 12V rail (only 16A), which powered the motherboard's 24pin main power connector, the hard disk drive and the DVD (HDD and DVD need 0,5A+2,0A=2,5A).

    Thank you for your assistance. :)
    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everybody !!
