I have 2 UD5H boards and no problems. I ran both 2600k & 3770k on one board and overclocked both x45 stable. The other board is running 3770k overclocked, x45 stable 24/7.

Regarding mSATA & the EZ Smart Response:

Someone mentioned that the max size for the mSAT is 64Gb.
I would like to add that I read that when the mSATA slot is us ed SATAII port 5 is non-useable. To me that meant that the mSATA shares that channel. If that channel can then be used with a larger drive than 64Gb then the mSATA zhould b able to be larger than that also.

I would like to clarify:
On pg. 80 of my manual it states that the max cache size is 64Gb & anything beyond that is still available for storage. So one would be able to add say a 120Gb mSATA.

Does this mean programs can also be added & ran from the remaining SSD drive section?

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.

cool story bro....lol,good luck

I'm close to returning it as well, because I can't use my Focusrite Saffire Pro 14 firewire audio interface with it. When it is connected, system freezes at ramdom; rock solid when it's not. I have been using the audio interface with other motherboards (Z68) and never had a problem.

What would you guys suggest as a better Z77 motherboard for replacement?

Good luck on your next purchase. I knew you were trying to resolve some issues you were having and sometimes it's just best to punt and start again. Only you know where that point is. But to be fair, there are many (including myself) you have not experienced the issues you were having and are happy with all the features the board has to offer. Again, best of luck and if you get a chance stop by and let us know what you have decided to get in its place and how things worked out.

There seems to be a new USB3 Driver recently released from Intel, Version 1.0.5.235.
Bearing in mind that many people have suffered USB3 related issues on the GB Z77 boards, I wonder if anyone has tried this driver yet?

I also saw (somewhere) a new Intel INF driver set 9.3.0.1020, apparently intended for Intel boards but people have managed to extract and manually load updated drivers via Device Manager.

(Just scratchin' around for ideas that might help people still experiencing bugs.... Apologies if these have been mentioned here already - this is getting to be a bit of a mega-thread and I might have missed it.)

This may be obvious but is it normal for the BIOS to freeze, I know its a slightly unstable OC when this happens but its really annoying not being able to change any settings because it freezes, I have to clear the cmos all the time. Just making sure this is normal as I dont remember this happened on my P45 boards.

Vcore too low?

Mine locked when I went the wrong way once. It would load into the bios & as soo...n as the vcore would drop & it would freeze... I sometimes like to do odd-ball tests so I rather enjoy the dual bios.

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

I haven't gotten any idle, screech of death BSODs with the newest F7 dated May 11-12th on my 2500k and UD5H. I did get them once every few days with F8a though.

After I updated to the newest F8 that just came out below, I immediately noticed my mouse responsiveness was negatively affected: http://www.mediafire.com/?3w2p56gwb7y3qbm

I use a G9x plugged into the USB 2.0 port on the back of the case.

If there's anyone on earth that would notice such a thing, it's me. I even have a thread on how to configure your PC for the most optimal Windows 7 mouse response on this site:

Yes, that's way too damn high. You should be able to do 1866mhz at cas9 with stock volts. My 30nm Samsung passes all stability tests at:
1600mhz 7-8-7-24 1.45v
2133mhz 11-11-11-28 1.45v

Might be stable at lower volts, but that's the only ones I've tested thoroughly so far. I run mine at those 1600mhz timings btw.
