    well thats a motherboard issue?

    now that i have left my RAM on 1333 and cpu 4.4 as it was a default bios setting it is nor restarting anymore. So its down to some sort of oc and ram oc.

    I'm having practically the same issue.

    Gigabyte Z97X-SOC boot failure

    Thing is I've got high end cooling. Yet still it runs hot. I've not touched easytune as I usually don't install the crap bundled.

    I'll try a reseating my EK supreme HF. I honestly miss my i7 920.

    I got the same problem, the problem is not the temperature because it also happens on tasks that barely uses cpu power.

    I wanted to contact support of gigabyte, but it says mailbox is unavaliable. Damn.... Thinking about RMAíng this board, and switch it for another.

    Do it, mate. Don't waste your time!

    I've tried different ram, graphics cards, hard driver configurations, beta, alpha and official BIOS revisions, USB ports, bare essential start ups and all end the same.

    Gigabyte support were of very little help and I'm being my 28 days no quibble return.

    I'm at the point of buying another board, probably MSI and RMA this board to sell the return!

    Thanks for the tip, I will wait until monday. Do not want to be without a mobo in the weekend and I'm still waiting for a reply, it's a hassle to remove it, well, that is easy, but I got a katana 4 cooler on it, but damn, it's a freaky annoyance to mount it (lol).

    The board itself is beatiful, I hope they can solve the problem.

    I feel your pain, man. I'm on a custom waterxooles loop. That's the sole reason I've been stubborn and trying to troubleshoot the issue.

    Now its an even bigger headache! Honestly, this issue is so widespread its astonishing that Gigabyte seem ti be burying their head in the sand.

    "I've tried different ram, graphics cards, hard driver configurations, beta, alpha and official BIOS revisions".
    Please check on the Latest Beta BIOS thread to see if it fixes your problems
    I see you have F6 and I think the latest is F7b. Disregard this post if your tried it already.
    Keep submitting tickets to Gigabyte.
    Post in "Latest beta bios" thread next time (if not already done). Stasio forwards some comments to Gigabyte R&D.

    Yup, currently on F7B. Still the system will lock up on first boot > boot detection failure detected > enter BIOS > F10 - Alls good till the system is off for >1hour.

    I was pretty sure you did but keep posting and checking the "Latest beta BIOS" thread.
    Stasio forwards to Gigabyte R&D some comments.
    You use the latest drivers and fixes too?
    regards

    Yes, mate. I, like all good boys, never use the drivers supplied on the CD and head straight to the drivers & support page for the latest drivers.

    Ive re-opened my ticket with Gigabyte. Perhaps something will come of it. I did try toubleshooting with Stasio to begin with, and he was a star, but eventually he pointed me to Gigabyte Support.

    A quick search shows its not isolated:

    Z97X SOC Rev 1 (not force) cold boot issues

    My thread: Gigabyte Z97X-SOC boot failure

    Z97x-soc problems

    cold boot problem with Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SOC

    Thanks for the pointers. If you have anything else Id be glad to hear it, incase Ive overlooked anything.
