    I tried a couple of different BIOS with the following results. Seems F12e is much better but SLi doesn't work!

    F11:
    No mouse (Logitech G9X or G700) in BIOS
    30seconds - 2 minutes of spin up/down before BIOS screen.
    Sli working (2 x GTX 670)

    F12D:
    Mouse in BIOS, yay!
    30seconds - 2 minutes of spin up/down before BIOS screen.
    SLi working

    F12D:
    Mouse in BIOS, yay!
    only 1 -2 spinups before bios screen, much better
    SLi NOT working - second card is not seen in OS although fans are spinning :(

    Will try RAM and memory testing now.

    I tried the motherboard with only one stick of ram at a time. Out of the 4 sticks only one would boot straight to BIOS screen without the spin up/down thing. So it must be the RAM and this board, I have tested the RAM with MEMTEST when it was in the ASUS and all was good.

    Maybe those sticks (all 4) are not XMP 1.3 compilant..

    What happens if you underclock them?
    Maybe you're not selecting the correct voltage for all 4 channels (A, B, C and D)..

    At default they run at 1333mhz at 1.5v
    XMP1 = 2133mhz at 1.65v
    XMP2 = 1866mhz at 1.65v

    All exhibit the same behaviour at startup.

    I am pretty sure mine is the same RAM as yours but at 4x4GB 2133MhZ

    I'll try removing a video card as well as it might not like them either.

    What BIOS are you using SnakeHaveYou?

    Boot issue seems to have settled down.
    I am running the Ram at XMP1 = 2133mhz at 1.65v. From a cold boot the system goes straight through but on a warm boot I still get the spin up/down scenario.

    Confirmed that the NIC on this motherboard is a piece of crap:
    Embedded E2100 jumbo frames support

    One thing in this motherboards favour though, it is uses a lot less power than the Asus P9X79 Pro. At the desktop my system runs around 140-150watts for system power (measured at wall) whereas the Asus was 200-250watts. Gaming the Gigabyte is using 450ish and the Asus 550-600+.
    Not sure what the Asus was doing with all that juice.
    The only difference in the systems is the Gigabyte is running Win8 RTM x64 and the Asus was on Win 7 X64, I can't see that making much difference though.

    Not exactly..

    My RAMs are XMP 1.2 compilant.. The X79 (or LGA2011) are only 1.3 compilant. Maybe this means that XMP is not backwards compatible (at least on Intel's boards), so i can't force them to work at 2000MHz (the native speed), so the only thing i can do is to force to work at 1866MHz, 1.65v and a little faster latencies..

    We have different RAM models :P



    I've used F8, F11, F12c, F12d and now i'm using F12e..



    I don't think that W8 vs W7 make a difference, because your PC reboots BEFORE Windows Boot secuence..



    First of all: Check the back Motherboard buttons (next to the PS/2 connector)..

    Check that the O.C. button is not activated (not pressed)
    Check that the M_Bios is selected (Main Bios) (There's two colours, blue and red, i don't remember which one is the Main Bios Sorry!!)


    After that, turn off the computer and press with a clip the CLR CMOS button in the back of the Motherboard..


    Check if still reboot or take a lot to boot up..

    I tried a CMOS clear but there is still the spin up/down on a warm boot. Cold boot is fine.

    I am using the main BIOS and OC button is off.

    F12e was slightly better for booting but as I said SLi didn't work. The OS didn't see my second video card.
    Is your system working with SLi and F12e?

    I have SLI working now.

    It worked with every BIOS i've tested (F8, F11, F12c, F12d and F12e)


    I've two questions.. Are you uising the big SLI connector? (this http://techreport.com/r.x/3-way-sli/connector.jpg)
    And, are you using the 1st and 3rd PCIE slots?
