    I am experiencing the same exact issue as: https://forums.techguy.org/threads/boot-loop-error-32-gigabyte-z97x-gaming-7.1206669/

    I recently acquired a GA-Z97X-SOC and i7 4790k combo to upgrade my existing setup and regardless of overclock settings; if I leave the PC off for about 15 minutes I have to reseat (e.g take one stick out, boot, place stick back) the memory in order to be able to boot back up without the aforementioned error code.

    My memory is 16GB (4x4) Geil DDR3 1333Mhz, same power supply and RAM as my previous build which was working perfectly.

    Can @Santori9 perhaps give an update? I would post a reply but his thread seems to be locked.

    You might need to run Memtest 86 http://www.memtest86.com/technical.htm
    You have to extract it and burn it as an ISO "
    The have an option to use it on a bootable USB stick also
    That ram might not be compatible with your new build, not all DDR3 works in any motherboard.
    Recommend to run Memtest overnight unless you start getting errors.

    Thanks for the reply, I do agree that it's probably a RAM compatibility problem (annoyingly), I am about to get my hands on some different modules so I'll give that a try.

    This "cheap" upgrade may get more expensive soon :(
