What is PCH temp and what is the normal range of temperatures to expect there?
post #2092 of 6656
I think those Gigabyte motherboards have really high pch temperatures... Mine vary from 55 to 65... (UD5h)

I guess that's the reason why the fan4 is always at 100%. It helps to cool down some degrees of the pch. Right now the cpu is cooler component compared with pch and motherbard. At least in my case.

I think Asus boards have better (cooler) pch temperatures...

Lol blue light certainly does not cause cancer. Yes, blue light has higher energy than red light but its only when you get into ultra violet rays that you even have to consider it's energy. Basically no visible light is going to cause cancer. More so, if anything blue light is better for you than red light because blue light is calming whereas red light induces a sense of being rushed and sometimes stress.

never update your BIOS unless it is needed, and it isn't. I bet it shipped with F7 correct? That is the new BIOS all boards should ship with.

its fine, under 80C is fine. It runs hotter than the Z68 PCH, because of the USb 3.0 controller. It doesn't affect performance either.

I've just run into a USB issue with my UD5H. I bought a USB 3.0 external drive and have found that one of the front USB 3.0 ports on my case doesn't recognize the external HDD properly. The first time I plugged the drive into that port Windows told me that the device is capable of operating faster, and then I was able to copy a file to it successfully at USB 2.0 speed. Every additional time I've tried to connect it to that port Windows reports that the drive must be formatted before being used. The drive works fine at USB 3.0 speed on my other front port and the back ports. I have ruled out the case ports and cables, it's gotta be the internal bracket that came with my Gigabyte board or the motherboard header. I'm using the F_USB30_2 header, I plugged the bracket which comes with the board into that header and then the USB 3.0 cables from my case are going into the two ports on that bracket. Because the drive works properly on other ports I'm assuming it's not a driver issue. My next troubleshooting step is probably to try plugging into a different internal USB header. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing my problem?

that would be the logical option, I have used the front panel and my external USB 3.0 thingy, it seems to work okay. If you reinstall drivers what happens? IMo just use the other port.

Yeah I can use the other port, but I'd like to track down this problem and solve it if possible. Now that I think about it I may not have ruled out the case ports and cables. What I did was swap the case's cables between the two ports on the bracket and the same front port still didn't work. I guess that rules out the bracket? That might rule out the header too. Going to try a different header.

try a different header, if the same issue persists it could be the cable, it would also be the header on the board. USB 3.0 is extremely finiky, that is one reason thunderbolt is being added, as USB 3.0 has major limitations with cables. For instance even angling the connector 90 degrees for USb 3.0 requires a certified connector, because of the signaling issues, that is also why the controllers and the ports have to be so close to the PCH or the controller being used, and why the hubs are places so close to the ports, they do much than just divide up the USB 3.0, they also help amplify the signal, that is why the native ports are always those closest to the PCH.

Also BTW, with Windows 8 the GB Z77 boards should get that USb over SCSI protocol upgrade boost, as it is built into W8.

LOL according to the articles he's read, blue light is great - during the day. At night, it disrupts the sleep cycle and causes all kinds of other health issues. So I guess the underlying cause here is lack of sleep, but is apparently directly related to the blue spectrum.
