Have a Gigabyte GA Z68 XPUD4 and just cant get the bugs out of it. Have gone from the boot loop cycle problem to other problems and finally have it working half decent but its just not running right. To long a story to go through but from what I have heard the Z68 chipset is not that stable.

So have decided to get the Z77 chipset on a replacement motherboard , so I dont want to commit the same mistake and want a good motherboard that is stable , stable and even more stable.......


Suggestions


btw: i7 2700k cpu

have you updated your bios on the gigabyte board to the most current?

side note, my asrock z68 is rock solid even at 4.9ghz on the cpu. i leave my computer up for weeks without a reboot

well its the GA Z77X UD5H

and not boot problems and basically the only problems I got was when I used the Gigabyte utilities especially the overclocking one .. overclocking was a disaster and it was only a mild o.c and the temp was low

ended up removing it and not o/cing at all BUT I have updated the Bios to F5 which is suppose to fix some o/c problems BUT I dont intend to o/c anyway


One thing is it boots quick , very quick
