    I think I give up, and I'll invest in a new motherboard. Any suggestions?

    I fixed my issue by unplugging the reset switch. Turns out I have a faulty switch.

    Perhaps this is something you could try?

    Good suggestion, it was worth a shot, unfortunately it did not help me. I did notice that the GFX card wasn't properly seated due to a front mounted USB cable running underneath it slightly raising it. Made adjustments to properly seat it, but no dice. Swapped the GFX card back to my GTS 250 in desperation (well, to rule the GFX card out), but this is a persistent ******* of a problem.

    • Went over all cables and components, checked for seating. Reseated 8-pin and 24-pin connectors
    • Bios:
      • Changed DRAM Voltage to 1.64V and QPI/Vtt voltage to 1.3V
      • Changed System Memory Multiplier (SPD) to 10.0 (1333 Mhz)
    • Tried a Cooler Master 550W PSU instead of my Corsair HX850W
    • Tried each memory module in a white RAM slot by itself
    • Detached Reset SW (and made sure the cables are where they are supposed to be)
    • Swapped back to GTS 250


    Things I tried before posting this thread:
    • Ran MemTest86
    • Swapped my old Club3D GTS 250 with a new Gigabyte GTX 670
    • Swapped my old VelociRaptor 150GB system disk with a new Intel SSD 520
    • Installed Windows 8 on new SSD, reinstalled when rebooting symptoms appeared

    Got this screenshot of SpeedFan. Those voltages doesn't look promising. What's the cause of this? And could that be the problem?

    The strange voltage readings are probably due to a bug in the program with the super I/O chip that your motherboard uses to report voltages.
    Go to http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...ity-tools.html and download CPUID HWmonitor, SIV-System Information Viewer 4.34, SIW 2011.1029s, HWiNFO64 4.11 or other monitoring programs to see what they report. You can also double check some voltages in your bios.

    Thanks for the reply. I've checked with all of the listed programs, however only SIV could monitor Voltages as far as I could tell. SIW 2011.1029s does not support WIN8. The same voltages differs in SIV64X as in SpeedFan, apart from PSU +5, which is at 5.053.

    I also downloaded HWMonitor that only outputs +12V at 11,52V, Core at +0,87V, Aux at +0,02V, the rest are grayed out with values set to +x,xxV.

    In BIOS (while accessing MB Intelligent Tweaker (M.I.T.)) I once again get this message, just as last time I changed the QPI/Vtt and DRAM Voltage:

    The system has experienced boot failures because of overclocking or changes of voltages.

    Last settings in this page may not coincide with current H/W states.
    The only voltage I can find that is relevant to the SpeedFan screenshot above is +5V (in PC Health Status) which reads 5.053V

    Edit: There might not be a problem with voltages at all?

    I was referring to checking the reported voltages in the bios PC Heath Status window.
    The SpeedFan voltages are so far out of line that your system wouldn't boot if they are accurate.
    A web search using: windows 8 voltage gadget might provide one or more gadgets that will report the correct voltages.

    This is a sample X58 bios voltage screen:

    Your reported bios voltages look good, but the 12 voltage isn't included.
    It looks like your power supply and motherboard voltage regulators are probably OK.
    You can borrow and test with another psu, but chances are your system will be the same.
    Can you borrow different memory to test with?

    You can download and install win7 on a different drive, skip the win7 activation and then verify voltages and see if your system still has stability problems.
    You can use the unactivated win7 o/s for up to 30 days.

    Wazza300 has a lot of X58 experience. You can send him a PM and ask for his help with bios settings.

    Yes, he tried to help me earlier in the thread to improve the stability, but with no luck. I'll load my old VelociRaptor (it has Win7 on it) and check the values there.
    I've tried another PSU and it had the same instability issue. Unfortunately I cannot get hold of any RAM modules so I haven't been able to fully rule out that option yet.

    I'll keep working on this system (as it is a decent system IMO), but I'll be looking to buy new equipment, so I will be hanging around in What Should I Buy? board.
