I dont have acess to the BIOS..
Plus the cpu is cold on first boot
Why don't you have access to the bios??

From your specs.

Other Info This Computer was built from scratch
I have no idea why a computer built from scratch would block you from the bios.

I think he means that the PC does not stay on long enough to get into, or do anything with, the BIOS Jack.
I should have remembered that when I made the statement. That makes things more difficult to diagnose.

amoretan: Do you recall installing the CPU and heat sink?
Are you sure it was done properly? (Just a question!)
What did you use for thermal compound?

Hi...
I used the thermal compound that came with the Fan I bought which is a very good one, I spent like one year with the cpu stock fan , then I bought this one to lower temps a lot more, it was sucessfull, This mobo and cpu are exactly 2 years and eleven months old. It worked flawlessly until this isuue..I recently checked for cpu placement and it is all fine..

Thanks a lot

Do you still have the new power supply installed?

Another thing that I have only seen twice, is the power button or it's harness on the case. If their is a short it will reboot at times.

The last option I can think of is build the system outside the case.
You will have to use a small screw driver to jump the two pins to start the system.

Some of the new power supplies will cycle if for what ever reason the power supply senses a short any place in the system. It doesn't take much of a power to ground short.

Hello people... I did everything as suggested and nothing. Same boot loop. This motherboard is famous for having this booting loop issue. My mobo Rev. is 1.3. and I updated to Bios version F12 long time ago. Never had the issue.

I remember that I started this thread because I wanted to be informed in case the boot loop happened to me.
Advices to avoid the dreaded boot loop on GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3

Today I followed advices from that thread and nothing...

I cannot believe this.... I cannot even find the same mobo online...

Thanks

Your problem is probably the reason for that.

Couldn't you get an i5 compatible motherboard from another brand?
