Update, I looked on Corsair forums and found out that the front panel is a USB hub so apparently drivers can affect it. I thought I had all the right USB drivers but I knew for sure I had the intel 3.0 driver so I plugged the front panel into USB30_1 internal header and now both front ports seem to work fine. I guess the lower two USB 3.0 headers (VIA?) need their own driver and not the Intel driver from the Gigabyte website? I only need the one header one so I'm all set for now.
I found the driver for the VIA VL810 hubs on VIA's website but I'm not gonna install it since I don't need them right now.
hey so can I ask why you just don't use the GB ports? So it isn't the motherboard or the GB bracket, it is your case's I/O?

I have tried the BCLK "fix"
I have tried raising my VTT to 1.10 as i have 16gb Samsung green ram and setting my Ram voltage to 1.55.
I installed the latest BIOS F9C as Gigabyte support suggested me to do last night.
I have read people saying that uninstalling the USB 3.0 drivers helped with freezes so i will try that if the system has the screech of death lockup again.
If it bluescreened at least i may have an idea as to what to troubleshoot, but there are no entries in Event viewer.
Does anyone else get random freezes while gaming or have any suggestions i could try guys?
Try what Yor_ said.

I need to know if the issues are fixable with a bios update or not. Currently on F8 still get random issue. VTT bug???
You are no help unless you can lit your system specs, all of them. I mean are you using a Z77MX-D3H or a UD5h? What CPU? What memory?

I wanted the best, but just as I heard on Computex 2012 about these newer Z77 mobo's, I felt sad. Any comments?
No the OC would be the same
I can tell you from experience that the OC should be no different. VRMs already are overkill. Perhaps VRm might be more efficient or cooler.

It seems the new vrm has less cpu phases but uses these new mosfets DrMos like, they'll probably oc the same
I like the new look of the UP boards but they will surely cost much more.
