What's the preferred way to flash the BIOS? @BIOS, QFlash, or something else?

QFlash is much preferred for reliability. Make sure that the USB stick is FAT or FAT32 formatted and just put the BIOS file on it.
I have had some difficulty making QFlash "see" my USB stick - If you have problems try different USB sockets.

I have also used @BIOS at a push, and never had problems myself, but apparently it is more likely to brick your BIOS.

The official BIOS version F7 fixed up my Z77X-UD5H woes. I'm running BIOS default settings and all is good. Except, I notice at stock settings my I5-3570 only turbos up to 36 multiplier with 1 Prime95 worker.

When I was fooling around trying what you guys suggested disabling C3/C6 brought stability in F6 and turbo only went to 36. I suspect F7 disables C3/C6 because when I change it from Auto to Enabled the turbo goes up to 38 mult.

No I did that and I entered the bios and tried it there and I also hit the end button to bring it up at the flash screen nothing .....

I've been working on my RAM overclock on my UD5H, and I am curious what this setting does:
447
It is explained in the manual like this
111
It might as well just say that it does "stuff." I'd really like to know what this setting actually does, and if there's any performance or stability to be had from it.

I have a question about the dual BIOS. Lets say you brick your 1st BIOS, now you switch to your secondary. Is it possible to fix your 1st BIOS from the secondary?

Don't worry, haven't broke anything yet biggrin.gif although I did overclock to the point where the bios would lock up as soon as I entered it so I was forced to clear the CMOS.

Here is a thread for performance enhance. Its old, but Gigabyte doesn't change often .... ahem.... uefi...ahem tongue.gif

No Idea, but I would hope boot and switch would work if a borked one needed to be reflashed.

Ditto! love the board, it's been rock solid "knock on wood." As soon as I took it out the box and felt the weight, touched the PCB and saw the components I knew it was going to be a quality product. smile.gif

I've had great success with my OC as well and i'm sure the UD5H has a hand in that. thumb.gif

QFlash is the best, format your thumb drive in FAT32 and then put the BIOS ROM on there, and then go into the BIOS, go into advanced mode and press F8.

After resetting CMOS a couple times, it eventually booted and I got F7 on it. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to help things. I also tried the secondary BIOS, and it similarly fails to boot.

I started stripping the box back down to basics, and found that if I remove both the graphics card (Sapphire 7950) and SSD (OCZ Vertex 4), it reliably starts up and politely asks for something to boot off of. wink.gif Adding either back causes it to hang during boot again (typically w/ A6 or AE).

Appreciate any thoughts!

I have the Z77X-UD5H so mine might be different with the vcore settings, but I don't think so. Maybe someone with the UD3H can chime in to correct me if I am wrong. I wish I could afford to have all the boards to test things on, but I cannot.
It looks like you have two different speed ram kits. You'll have to set them manually if you want them to run the same. One will either have to be overclocked or underclocked, I think... You have one running at 1333 and one running at 1600. You might be able to get the 1333 running at 1600 but you will have to play with the timings.
You have two problems right now, Processor and Ram. Lets focus on one, for now, and changing the processor around might affect ram so lets get the processor ironed out.

hi poly,

so i just set it to normal and the dvid to +.09, however, the vcore in cpuz is at 1.32, way higher than what my hsf can handle at the moment. any suggestions on how to make it lower?

Didn't get a chance to see your original issue, but while reading reviews on newegg I did remember seeing someone have an issue with their Vertex 4.

Here it is, not sure if it has anything to do with your issues
"SATA III 6Gb/s did not work with my OCZ Vertex4 SSD out of the box. Blue screen at end of Win7 Pro install every time. Moved to 3 Gb/s SATA II port and was able to install Win7, update drivers/BIOS, then move to SATA III port."
