    Cold double booting or posting isnt confined to Gigabyte /asus on p67 z68 (very similar ) asrock has it too.

    Its been alleviated to a large extent by a newer bios there but some people still get it.

    As Waz was saying it could be component situational.Its not ideal whatever way you look at it.

    For me the only way to remove it totally is to reset cmos load and save the default settings and leave them that way,ie no overclocking at all,which isnt really practical for me.
    The problem was present in both my b2 and b3 boards.

    For me it doesnt wipe settings or anything,its just if the settings are changed from default it will double boot.
    Try the bioses again maybe ,some with pll overide some not /or perhaps those with max cpu vlts extended above 1.52?

    I believe for asrock p67 extreme 6 the latest bios is much better, I havent gotten around to trying it,still on release 1.50.

    As per the original Post:

    My Ram is Corsair CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 - 2 4gb modules, matched pair.
    I've also tried, Kingston, ADATA, and Crucial modules. These other modules are all verified known, good, working modules via Metest.

    My board: Z68X-UD3H-B3
    Chipset rev 09
    Southbridge rev B3

    Latest Bios - I've also tried pretty much every other BIOS for the board.

    460GTX SLI (also happens with integrated, or single PCIE GPU)
    760Watt PCP&Cooling PSU (I've also tried 2 other 600+ Watt PSU's (same problem))

    2 WD Raptors in Raid Array
    2 500GB WD Blacks in Raid Array

    CPU - I5 2500k. I've also tried my i3 2100 same problems...
    also tried with a single intel SSD - same problems.

    Guess what is always the constant - this gigabyte motherboard.
    Hope that helps.

    you still might need to wait for bios's to mature and fix it,they are always slow in fixing things with drivers and bios's,was the same for my x58 ud5 with sleep resume,but it did get fixed with a bios update,and no doubt its the board/bios but not every gigabyte p67/z68 is suffering with it

    Good news
    for me anyway the latest Asrock non beta bios 1.80(sep 2011) cures my double boot problem ,even with my usual overclock settings.I just never got round to it before.

    My 1155 system isnt too dissimilar to yours.Sli/non sli 460gtx the problem was there.The psu is like 1 month old ,the prob was there before and up until today.

    I dont have a Gigabyte 1155 system as in sig ,mainly cos I wanted the extra sata ports while waiting for my b3 swop and also cos gigabyte were a bit slow going for the newer uefi.
    Now they have both I think so np there.

    One thing with updating bios ,on older gigabyte(775) boards at least .Allways reset to optimised defaults and save and boot before bios flashing.
    Allways flash using the non os utility , flash thru bios updater.
    I mention this cos a couple of flashes didnt take properly on my ep 45 and I had to redo them.
    Whether this was due to the dual/backup bios needing all vatriables reset to standard before flashing or what I dont know.

    Anyway in my case a revised bios has cured the problem ,altho its not listed as "double boot fix" ,just revised cpu code and revised raid rom.
    One other thing Stasio has allways looked after the gigabyte bioses expecially beta ones : making sure they get posted on p67/z68 sites etc,might be worth sending a pm to see which bios will cure the problem,if its out yet.

    I'm glad yours is working. Unfortunately, I am not that patient with the manufacturer. My personal machine is down, and I have a client with a PC I assembled using the same setup as mine, with all of my problems. As a system builder, I can't have my clients having non-working or problematic machines. I can't just tell a customer, "hey its no big deal - just unplug it for a while" or "don't worry, it'll be fixed in a future bios update". My expectation is that the product works out of the box, with every processor they've advertised it'll work with - NO EXCEPTIONS.

    If they don't work, I'd like Gigabyte to either recall the product, provide me with another board of equal or higher specification that WILL work, or refund my $ on any and all boards found to be problematic and not working as advertised.

    Try testing with a different brand/model power supply.
    It's a long shot, but sometimes there are incompatibility issues, even if a psu works fine in a different system.

    As mentioned in the first post, I've tried this. The problem is the board - nothing else. I've tested it with entirely different components (ATi cards, SSD HD, 3 or 4 diff PSU's, diff RAM, etc).

    I'm not ebaying a $170 motherboard to take a huge loss on it for hardware issues the Manufacturer needs to address. What do I tell my customer? eBay it? I'm already going to have to replace the customer's board with another working board.
