You guys wouldn't happen to know if F7 works better for Ivy Bridge?

 

I had a hell of a time getting my OC stable on the latest F8, but it's the only one I have tried so far.

I'm on F8d and it's all good ..you have dual bios- use it (keep F7 on one chip and try F8 on the other )

F6/F7/F8d/F8 I can't tell the difference between them. :shrug:

lol

F7 changed stock BCLK back to 100.1 F8 added in another thing to fix up idle BSOD issue for others who weren't bclk affected.

you guys are saying F8 isn't as good as F7 for your sandy bridge, why?

It made my OC not stable and it sounds like Roach didn't like the "responsiveness and how the mouse feels."

I've seen a few posts saying they couldn't get the same stable OC after switching BIOs, which is plausible. I'm too lazy to read change logs.... hahaha drool.gif

I just updated to F8 with my 2600k. On my previous BIOS (F6) my dads computer reset its BIOS on its own... really weird. After that it didn't want to overclock at all. I would set a multiplier ratio, and no matter what I set it wouldn't go above 38. So I flashed F8, and same problem. It won't overclock anymore. So I put everything on default, and Turbo doesn't work. So I turned on C1E and C3 and all of those settings, left everything else on auto, and it auto clocks to 3.8 GHz durring idle and load. Really strang. Before the BIOS reset itself everything seemed to be fine. Did something "bad" happen? Hopefully someone can help because the amount of issues in this board are starting to make me regret buying it.

Just tried F7 as per other Sandy owners advice, and overclocking works fine. Im still really confused as to why this would be. So many strange issues with this board it blows my mind

So, I finally had enough of my UD5H and finally went through with returning the board for a refund. I discovered that when the board was stable, I actually had the memory in single channel mode with the only configuration of modules that worked being the two closest slots to the CPU. I didn't buy the board to be a beta tester for things that should have been tested before release to make sure it works properly and especially with everything it is designed to be compatible with. It's obvious all the Z77 platform motherboards were rushed out to meet demand for Ivy Bridge, despite the fact that Ivy Bridge CPUs were not even available when Z77 was released.

The UD5H wasn't even my first choice, because of the placement of the PCI slot; A 2 slot video card placed in CFX or SLI would cover the PCI slot which I still needed. I would have bought the Asus P8Z77 V Pro, but it would have put me over my parts budget and I still wanted features that cheaper boards didn't offer. I was originally planning to buy an I5 3570K, but I managed to get my I7 2600K new for $255 on Ebay.

In the end, it's really my own fault for not listening to myself after saying I would wait and see how the new Z77 boards turn out. Now I really will be watching and waiting until something better comes along. My Q6600 has served me well for almost 5 years; I know I can wait a bit longer.
