    Hi guys!

    I'm trying to get a new computer to work. It is stuck in an endless reboot. I was watching the numbers of the boot process in the diagnostic led on the board and it reboots at random spots.

    I have managed to get it to boot into the BIOS long enough to turn on XMP Profile 1, but I can't seem to get anywhere beyond that.

    I have tried using 2 different (new) motherboards and have the same results.

    I have also tried stripping it to motherboard, cpu, memory, and keyboard, and it still continued.

    The BIOS is using the newest revision (F10).

    I have also tried to get it to boot with 1 stick at a time and I have tried each stick in each slot individually.

    I figure that the likelihood of me having 2 defective boards with the same defect is pretty small, and I would suspect that having 4 bad sticks of memory from the same kit is not very likely.

    I am suspecting that either this is a settings issue, or the cpu is defective. Any thoughts?

    Can you please show us what timings the MB tries to set with the XMP enabled? You can save screenshots to USB storage via F12 key.

    I cannot speak about that specific kit, but did test tons of kits on my Gigabyte Z97 mb and did never run into any issues unless i used very exoctic memory (like very old kits or very high frequency ones, then things got interesting^^).

        The timings look ok to me, nothing that looks really out of place

        You could try to set Memory Boot Mode -> Disable Fast Boot and see if that helps, but that is only a shot in the dark. Slightly raising Vdimm might also help, just don't go overboard with that.

          Thanks buddy!

          I gave it a shot and it didn't work. I submitted a ticket to tech support yesterday as well. Hopefully, I will hear back from them soon. I also initiated a RMA for the processor.

          I appreciate you taking the time to help me with this. I should just blame Microsoft for the joy in doing so. I know they had nothing to do with this, but it's... Microsoft.

            Each module caused the same problem when tested individually?

            May be a bad CPU at this point if problem persists.

              Thanks for the response!

              Yes, none of them seemed to work. I'm suspecting the cpu as well. The warranty replacement should be here tomorrow.

              I will let you know what I find

                Here's the follow up...

                Turns out the reset switch in the new case had an intermittent short in it. I removed the circuit, and everything is working perfectly.

                Thanks for the assistance guys! It is all very much appreciated!
