Gigabyte GA-X79-UD3 and i7 4930K issues?

Hello all
Earlier today a friend and I built my new PC. When we finally turned it on, it started turning off and on again every two-three seconds. Did we do anything wrong or is it because the M/B doesn't recognize the i7? We read somewhere that we should first install an older lga2011 cpu and update the bios in order for the i74930K to work.
Any thoughts?
Thank you for your time.

P.S. Since I'm still waiting on my g.skill ram, we put 2x4gb corsair xms ddr3 to test the PC.

And here's what's included:
COOLERMASTER RC-912P-KKN1 HAF 912 PLUS BLACK, CORSAIR CX SERIES MODULAR CX600M ATX POWER SUPPLY - 600W 80 PLUS, INTEL CORE I7-4930K 3.40GHZ LGA2011, GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD3 M/B, G.SKILL F3-1866C10Q-32GAB 32GB (4X8GB) DDR3 PC3-14900 1866MHZ ARES QUAD CHANNEL KIT, GIGABYTE GEFORCE GTX650 TI BOOST GV-N65TBOC-2GD 2GB GDDR5 PCI-E, SAMSUNG DVD-RW SH-224DB/BEBE SATA, SAMSUNG MZ-7TE250BW 840 EVO SERIES SSD 250GB, WESTERN DIGITAL WD1002FAEX 1TB CAVIAR BLACK SATA3

Hi,
It needs the F16 BIOS version, released September 2013.
Check the board manufacture date (first 4 digits after M in the serial).

Where's the manufacture date located? Is it on the top side of the mobo? So, is that the problem at a 99.9% chance or should I worry about anything else? Oh and by the way, the only way I could update the bios ver. is by installing an older 2011 cpu and update and then replace it with the 4930K?

The serial is located on the board's box. First 4 digits after SN (not M).
For example "SN082540084966" represents the 25th week of 2008.
What revision is the board, 1.0 or 1.1 (on the bottom left corner of the board)?

It's rev1.1,
I sent GB support a mail describing the whole case of events and I'm waiting....I hope they give me back something....

P.S. Is providing the S/N crucial? I left the box in my car. I shall check it out asap

No. If 1.1, the CPU is supported. Try starting the board outside the case, single RAM stick installed, both 24 and 8 pin power cables connected, graphics card, DVD drive, keyboard and mouse. Leave only the power button wires connected to the motherboard (remove the reset, led etc)

I just found a gigabyte forum entry where somebody encountered the same issue as myself. The exact same things occured! He also mentions that his 3930k and 3960x cpus worked fine. So I should find someone who's eager to lending me a 3930k for half an hour or so..... Pure disappointment!

Which means in my case the system should work as it is... Isn't it what you are suggesting?

It seems so.
OK, then, what are the 4 digits after SN?

Then the BIOS has to be updated.

Update your BIOS and all of your other hardware for your motherboard. People tend to negate all of the drivers for things like USB and BIOS and other firmware for your MOBOS.
