disable system fan SMART control, in the BIOS under PC health, go there and under CPU fan SMART you will see for system fans, just disable.

For the past month I've been exchanging mails with GGTS because of the following:
The GA-Z77X-UD5H doesn't detect my two LSI Megaraid controllers. I have a LSI Megaraid 8204elp (PCI-E x4) and a LSI Megaraid 9260-8i (PCI-E x8) that are not detected by BIOS POST.
I tried all the beta BIOS there is and still are not detected the way they should.
The weird thing is they are only detected when I remove my PCI-E Graphic card. If I remove the PEG card and use the integrated graphic the cards are detected.
My older LSI 8204elp is only detected on first x16 PCI-E slot.
The newer LSI 9260-8i is detected on both the first and second PCI-E slots.
BUT WITHOUT PEG ?!?
The Gigabyte support are trying to help but in the last reply they said they tested with two Adaptec raid controllers... this may be the case they don't have LSI cards to test with...
Any thoughts?
Yea same thing, if they don't have the hardware they cannot test, but here is what I am thinking. The 4x slot is using bandwidth off the PCI-E controller in the CPU, so it might be that there isn't enough bandwidth, you only have 16x lanes. How many lanes does each card use? What happens if you take out the VGA and put it back in after they are detected? Are they detected in windows?

what do you mean? There is a switch on the board if you have a UD3H, UD5H, or Sniper 3.

Older card --> LSI Megaraid 8204elp --> 4x
Newer card --> LSI Megaraid 9260-8i -->8x

I only want to use one of them, not both at the same time. The setup I would like to use is GFX on first x16 slot and 9260-8i on second slot.

Taking out the VGA makes the LSI card detectable by BIOS. Windows is not an issue. its not a driver problem or anything software related.
The raid controllers need to load parallel to BIOS their own boot code, their own card BIOS. Once they load, there is no problem with Windows.

When the VGA is put back in, the Raid cards are again not detected and therefor unusable. Its a pity if Gigabyte doesn't have LSI cards to test this.
Maybe someone from LSI reads this and provides some product samples to them. That could improve mutual compatibility.

you can't use both of them at the same time with your VGA card, only 1 there isn't enough bandwidth. The newer card needs to be in the second PCI-E slot, and the old card can be in either, but you can only use 1 card at a time as there isn't enough bandwidth. You can't run your GPU at 4x in the first slot. Youc an do the math, 16x or 8x, and then 8x and 4x would give you 20X lanes if your main GPU runs at 8x lol. Right? 8X+8X+4X=20X, 16x+8X+4X=28X.

IMO perhaps the Z77X-UD3H is a MUCH better choice for you. As the UD3H has its last slot wired to the PCH for 4x instead of the CPU like the UD5H. The UD5H is wired to the CPu to provide 3-way crossfirex, just like the maximus 5 Formula.

If 3-way crossfire is used, how are they running? 8+4+4 ?
My setup doesn't use the third slot. I just want to use one raid card.
I have two Raid cards because I thought that not being detected was the raid card's fault. And bought another one thinking the motherboard was OK and the older raid faulty.
It wasn't !!!
Both cards are indeed being detected when I try them separately. So the cards are ok. The problem is that I have to take out the PCI-E VGA to make them work.
The older UD5H BIOS never detected the raid cards, with or without VGA. So there is improvement.

The sad story is that the end user, the consumer is being used as guinea pigs, as beta testers. We are buying a product that is not already finished. Its a work in progress...
The good part is that they have a good client support. They are really trying...

Sin, I have the UD5H, and I know there is a switch, but when I attempt to use the backup it says it can not find the mbr and will not boot. Tried to copy my other bios to the backup, and can not get it to work.

What I bolded, so if you put in your GPu and one of the RAID cards, it works? There is no physical way you can use both of them at the same time, and that isn't the boards fault, it is Intel's fault for only providing 16x PCI-E lanes.

Here let me elaborate with a picture from one of my reviews:
481
Yes Crossfire can be run at 8x/4x/4x. But SLi cannot, it requires 8X per slot.

What do you mean it doesn't work? So you switch the switch and you attempt to flash it through qflash and it doesn't work?

Is there a setting necessary for UD5H to recognize a SSD? My backup bios will not find the SSD which has the operating system.

It does not offer the drive when setting up boot priority.
post #2150 of 6656
There's a section called Hard Drive BBS Priorities under BIOS Features screen. Check under there whether SSD is selected. Once you select it there, it should appear as an option in Boot Option Priorities. I had the same thing happen to me.
