    and the lower left corner shows rev 1.1
    After my first post, I also checked the Gigabyte U.K. site and they only listed the rev 1.0 model of your motherboard.
    In many cases, the difference between a 1.0 and a 1.1 motherboard is a minor cosmetic change, such as a motherboard heatsink.

    Ha, I know, I have been scratching my head for a couple days on this. I appreciate all the help so far, got some good ideas of where to go and what to try. I'll update when I acquire the means to proceed and post how it all turns out.

    If I shorted my board somehow, would it be completely dead or would it be alright once I corrected the short or would it depend? I was a dum dum and didn't do an external build before I tried it in the case -- though i have since. Maybe it contacted the case in a day it wasn't supposed to? I didn't notice anything like that, but I guess it might've happened. Kind of a shot in the dark.

    Some problems magically disappear when a motherboard is tested outside of the computer case.
    This sometimes happens during a new build, especially when the motherboard is not tested prior to installing it in the case.
    I always build and test a new setup outside of the computer case, followed by installing the operating system along with all updates.
    Once I've installed all required updates and programs, I then perform extended stress tests.
    Once everything is okie-dokie I then install the motherboard in the case.

    A short circuit can be harmless or in a worst case scenario, it can kill the motherboard, power supply and/or attached hardware.
    A reboot loop can be caused by hardware incompatibility (e.g. power supply card or memory) or it might be related to a faulty memory module, graphics card or bios settings. I suspect that a new system that won't post or boot when it's first installed in the computer case might be due to a problem with the motherboard stand-offs or the rear I/O panel. Make sure that all of the motherboard stand-offs are properly aligned with your motherboard, and that there aren't any extra stand-offs installed.

    At this point you should test using a minimalist setup outside of the computer case; cpu, cpu cooler, one memory module, graphics card, and a keyboard. Your goal is to be able to boot into the bios. Disconnect all unneeded usb devices, ssd, add-in hardware cards, hard drives and optical drives.

    Never place the motherboard's anti-static bag underneath the motherboard.
    The outside of the bag is electrically conductive.

    Hi,

    I have a very similar build

    GA-Z77X-UD3H
    i7 3770k
    HD 7850
    8 gb Crucial ddr3 1600
    Crucial M4 128 gb ssd
    Corsair GS700
    coolermaster hyper 212 evo

    Built my computer on Saturday October 27, started right up loaded win 7 pro and drivers from provided cds.
    On Friday November 2 found that my computer would not turn on, power switch on the mobo was flashing.
    Went through all the trouble shooting techniques and then replaced psu. Power Switch stopped flashing,
    however now the system wont boot, i continue to get error code 15 then 51 constant beeping then shut down
    and attempts to reboot itself. I have tried everything but swapping the cpu, would really appreciate any advice.

    Make sure that all memory modules are fully seated.
    Page 115 in your motherboard user manual says codes 50~55 = Memory initialization error occurs.
    Try booting with only one memory module.

    Multiple short beeps = power error with older motherboards.

    Default Re: GA-z77x-ud3h won't boot on new build

    So far I've tried using only 1 mem stick, tried it out of the case with only 1 mem stick, tried it out of the case with only cpu, heatsink w/fan, and only 1 mem stick. Also tried clearing the CMOS. Everytime I try to reboot same thing happens 1 or 2 flashes of code 15 then code 51 with constant beeping, turns off and cycles through again. Should I take the board or cpu back to microcenter and try to get new ones?

    In post #14 you said that you replaced your power supply.
    What is the brand and model name for both power supplies?
    Is the replacement psu brand new?

    We can best help you after you create a detailed hardware list in the System Specs portion of your

    first psu was ocz 600w brand new, the one i just put in today is a corsair gs700 brand new. Thanks for all your help. BTW i live in NJ and i think sandy had something to do with my psu going bad cuz it ran fine for a week but then got some brown outs and quick power outages but power returned within 2 min each time.

    Can you test with another power supply?
    Double check that all psu cables are properly seated.
    It's possible that your brand new psu was defective out of the box.

    See if MicroCenter will check out your system for free.
    It's possible that that your power supply might have been damaged during the brown outs or due to voltage spikes.
    Using a high quality UPS with AVR (automatic voltage regulation) and line conditioning can prevent most electrical problems.
    A possible issue with some power supplies is when the UPS output is a modified step sine wave, instead of a pure sine wave. Some power supplies with active PFC will not keep your system running with a modified step sine wave UPS model when a power outage occurs. Nearly all newer power supplies have active PFC.

    Both of my Seasonic made power supplies have no problems with both of my UPS modified step sine wave units when there is a brief or extended power outage.
    A pure sine wave UPS will cost at least 20% more than the less expensive modified step sine wave units.
    Check out the CyberPower UPS models if you're interested. Their PFC models use the pure sine wave output.

    dont think its a problem with the psu i just bought, it is delivering power to the board while the old psu was not. but dont know if anything was damaged by the outages. have no real way to test the mem sticks or graphics card. but like i said when out of the case with only cpu, heatsink w/fan, and 1 mem stick the problem is still persisting.
