Something wrong with my new build

Go to solution Solved by Ashley MLP Fangirl,

you could mark the thread solved. you can use the ckeckmark thing on the bottom of the most helpful reply. that way others won't come here for no reason. 

So a few days ago i finally finished my new build with a 3570k, gigabye GA-Z77-D3H mobo, 16gb 4x4 crucial memory and a 980ti. was working fine until this morning when i tried to run the superposition benchmark. windows blue screened and restarted. tried again and same thing. reset my modest gpu overclock and restarted the pc. then it would crash before i could log on. after trying to reinstall windows i gave up and removed the gpu, drives and left 1 dimm in. now it just keeps boot looping with it showing me a GIGABYTE, UEFI DUAL BIOS screen before restarting again. cant open bios or anything. also cleared cmos as well

try with each dimm at a time, use the igpu on the cpu as an output, it sounds like a ram issue if it boot loops and blue screens before windows

i assume 4 dimm slots, try each of them to rule out certain parts, it might be tedious but if none of the dimms work in any of the slots then you know its either ram or mobo, if anyone you know has a spare stick of ram try that, or buy some cheap ddr3 and test with that

i didn't know older platforms lived for so long you could still buy the boards 3 years after the cpu's came out... you might have a chance then.
