erm anybody can enlighten me,

new to i5 2500k and win7, which power option in window do we select if we want to oc the cpu?
notice a huge difference in idle temp when i picked between power saving and performance.

my old knowledge with q9400 is about disabling all the power saving option in bios and vista.

Thank you in advance

just got this board up and running yesterday on my new (and first) rig.

everything seems to be working fine, I'm on F4 bios, I have read that some people are having problems with the newer BIOS, should I update?

I have yet to attempt an OC.

I loaded up all the VirtuMVP crap, immediately noticed it increased my input lag, tried launching HL2 deathmatch using steam client, never saw any icon in game of whether it was working or not, saw no difference except increased input lag, then promptly uninstalled all the crap and disabled built in iGPU.

I have no idea how on earth they can claim this system is going to "increase responsiveness" and "lower input lag", when they are using MULTIPLE GPUs to frame buffer instead of a single one PLUS virtualization at the same time. There's really no way on earth it could do anything except increase input lag.

You have to set power plan to "High perfomance" when overclocking a 2500k on the UD5h, otherwise the PC will go into hibernate and become unstable and crash shortly after resuming from hibernate. At least an until an option is added to the bios for turning off PLL Overvoltage when overclocking.

Is the F8a beta bios working OK for the GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboard?

Hi, new here, UD5H and 2600k on the official F7 BIOS. I'm having the triple reboot issue when trying to wake up from sleep. It only happens every few times or so, otherwise it wakes up lightning quick. I'm not overclocking, just the optimized default CPU settings and stock RAM settings on XMP "Profile 1". F7 flash solved the intermittent cold triple-boot problem for me, an issue that persisted on the F6 BIOS. I see that others have had this sleep issue when overclocking, but I'm still running on stock settings here. I put a support ticket in with Gigabyte, but I just assume it's a BIOS/Sandy Bridge kink and I'll have to wait it out. Anyone else have the same problem and/or solutions?

Great thread and forum here, you guys have helped me out a lot.

that is what I set it to high performance and then go into advanced options and set hard drive and sleep to never.

I never like my PC going to sleep, and systems to be stable so far.

If you arent having any problems there is no reason to update. Enjoy thumb.gif

^ This.

I've always wondered the same. Why have BIOS settings with random options like, normal, turbo, extreme and not explain them. I generally test and tweak until I find the right recipe of setting. But it would be nice if Gigabyte started giving more information on these setting. Same goes for BIOS updates. A more detailed change log would be very welcomed and appreciated.

I know sometimes more information isn't always good. But the setting are arbitrary if one doesn't know what they do.

Btw, Sin, you are the man. Thanks for all your help in the community.

From a HardOCP review of the Z68X-UD7-B3:

The Performance Enhance setting configures optimization settings for the CPU's internal memory controller

How accurate that information is, I can't say.
