What do you think would be a good range idle/load temps for the chipset on the Gigabyte Z77 mobos?
Here is the deal, the Z77 PCH runs 0.6W hotter than the Z68 PCH 6.7w versus 6.1w, it accounts for the PCH's higher temperature. Now does it matter? No. Why? Because PCH temperature really doesn't impact the performance. It just runs on the warm side. You can replace the paste sure, I doubt if you decreased the temperature that it would actually help something, as the chipset is running within spec.

Found some more benchmark references to 2600 mhz ram and they seem in line with mine so i guess its ok. I have indeed pluged the SATA power cable into the motherboard.
For some reason the mem can do 2600 CL10 but cant do CL8 2133
, that is 8-11-11-24 it just freezes or does not boot at all :S any insight into why ? ( iv tried allot of voltage combinations :S ) btw i have 2 x 4gb pluged into the right slots if there is any question there
chipset temps , i have 55 in idle and a max of 70 when stressing with a 60 average under regular load ( gaming , rendering etc .. )
another question which iv either not understood the answer for or hasn't been answered in this topic is ,, for OC purposes ( disregarding power draw ) how should the 3D phase setting be set to ? got mine on auto but iv seen peeps having it on eXP performance and also the voltage response setting .
What would they be set to for stability at higher clocks ?
Also for Sin0822 , could you provide with a good 3770K 4.7ghz bios OC profile for UD5H ?
Sometimes some memory like samsungs don't do tight cas latencies.
Yea ill give you a profile.

This was just after a successful overclock to 4.5ghz 13 hour prime run, (temps never went about 76C) I set PLL to 1.7v, cpu to -.010, and RAM to Profile 1. 300 and 200 on the power CPU turbo settings.
I have the H100 and the light for the speed isnt coming up just the light on the guy icon on the bottom right.
You aren't boot looping, i think something is dead.

Is there a possibility that the problem comes from the hard drivers or the dual boot I have set up? There is also onboard a card reader that is recognized during the boot, but I have disabled it in the boot order. Should I try to remove one by one the hard drives? or the devices from the usb?
Try to ask stasio for a UD3H BIOS for your board, it would be more updated and might not have these issues.

the debug codes go like this when it turns on:
15 - Pre-memory North-Bridge initialization is started
36 - CPU PEU initialization
4F - Reserved
60 - DXE Core is started
then it dies, and loops again, sometimes it even tried the backup bios and it still doesnt work. I Think my board just died on me.... or CPU... and it just had a great overclocking experience with this board and was ready to start installing games...
ends at code 60,that isn't normal. Something could be hurt.
Check your memory, what memory runs at 1.3v with XMP profile? You could have killed the CPU's IMC, pr perhaps the system is in shock.
Try to check your cooler, do you have the stock Intel cooler, can you try replacing the cooler.
Also check your PSU. Unplug your GPU and remove it from the board and plug into the iGPU.
