Hey all, have lurked these forums occasionally and finally decided to join.
tl;dr - watch the video
Built my new rig roughly 3 months ago, runs absolutely great. I have one small problem though, one that does not hinder performance but is more of an annoyance if anything.
Occasionally, my PC fails to pass the POST. Here is a video.
This does not happen daily, sometimes doesn’t happen all week but if I had to put a time on it, I’d say it occurs roughly once or twice every two weeks. I’ve tested RAM, PSU, all seems okay. Temps are all good when gaming and so are my voltages and everything runs flawlessly. So I’m rather stumped and have singled out the motherboard.
As you can see there are no beeps, it just restarts, starts back up, then passes it’s POST. BIOS setting or motherboard maybe? Now I can game for hours on end and try to get the problem to replicate itself and it doesn’t. To be quite honest, the BIOS on this particular board is over my head. Possibly a RAM setting? BIOS is currently set to optimized defaults. Any help here is appreciated, am willing to take pictures of all the BIOS settings if anyone can help in any way. Here are the specs.
Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD3 Ultra BIOS Version F4
i7-6700k not OC’d
Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 1070
16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2133 PC4 17000
