I'am amazed that no one mentioned it but the Bios F9D has issues with coming back from the sleep mode. I gotta press the power button each time as it doesn't wake up with the mouse. This is a first from all the previous bioses that I've ran.

Hey guys. I have tried a search for my question, but I couldnt seem to find anything. I have a concern with the height and location of the heatsink that covers the chipset on the UD5H. I read a review of this board that stated the pcb of the video card made firm contact with the heatsink when installed in the PCIx16 slot, and this also caused the card to not go down in the slot all the way. I noticed the design of the chipset heatsink has a higher set of fins where the video card goes across it while researching this board, but I didnt realize the video card would lay right on it. I dont have to go into why this would be bad, as I am sure its pretty easy to figure out. This will be my first build, and I think I can finally get the last few parts to finish it and the mobo is one of the last parts I need to get, as it has been the most studied. I found it hard to believe that a company that makes mobos would not take into account the placement of the video card, and have it make direct contact with any of the heatsinks.

If anybody has any experience with this, please let me know. I have also read alot of posts and reviews of problems with this board, so that makes me a little worried as well. Thanks.

I have Gigabyte 580GTX installed on my UD5H, and the card is right on the heat sink, with practically zero clearance, but it latched in securely and easily; it wasn't a problem. There is no danger of shorting out, or anything worrisome like that, as there are no components or copper lands right on the edge of the graphics card, that could touch the mobo heat sink.

Edit: I just wanted to add, I wouldn't hesitate to buy this motherboard again, overall I'm well-pleased with it, for its features, performance and stability. Like any new cutting-edge, complex product, some people are always going to have compatibility issues, and they are usually the same ones that make the most noise on the Internet. My last board was also a Gigabyte, a GA-EP45-UD3R, and it was the best I'd ever owned up to then. I used it regularly for over 4 years. Unbelievably, when I first got it, it didn't like my floppy drive that much, and would regularly corrupt floppy discs, very annoying, considering I only used it to install RAID drivers or boot to run MEMTEST. Admittedly, it wasn't all that often, but those were times when I really needed the floppy drive to just work. A BIOS update fixed it, and that was that, no more problems. Just pointing out, Gigabyte does a good job of ironing out even minor issues affecting a small number of users (i.e. who uses floppies any more?), which is the main reason I went with them again.

The card I am planning on using is the EVGA GTX 570(2.5 GB model). I have been going through this thread trying to find something out about this issue. I noticed the Sniper board has the first card slot higher, but the case of the card would probably still make contact with the heatsink. I might be making more out of this than need be, but I am trying to think of everything. I just cant understand why the heatsink is not the same height all the way across. I figure whatever is under the taller part needs a little more heat dissapation, but I would rather the PCB of the card not hit the heatsink.

Just wanted to add that I tossed my UD5H based rig together last night and my ASUS GTX570 DCUII fits into the top PCIe slot without any issues.

My board shipped with BIOS F4 and based on this thread I immediately flash to F9d. Had keyboard (Ducky 9008)/mouse (Logi G400) plugged into the red USB ports and didn't have any issues navigating around the BIOS. Plugged my W7 64 thumbdrive into one of the blue USB ports under the Intel NIC and installed Windows in like 10-15 mins. The only installation quirk I ran into was my G400 not working in Windows immediately after a fresh install. Was super confused about why it would work in the BIOS but not Windows. I plugged my old G500 in and after installing motherboard/chipset drivers my G400 worked again.

Will work on overclocking this beast tomorrow. biggrin.gif

Upping the Vcore doesn't seem to help so is it a IMC voltage issue?

did you increase the LLC? Increase the vcore some more? How you ever OCed before?

What CPU do you have? If you have Sandy Bridge you have to disable PLL overvoltage in order for sleep to work.
I don't use sleep, so I have no idea if it works for me or not tongue.gif.

what if you press a key on the keyboard?

So his issue is that he has to press the power button instead of the mouse to turn his computer on from sleep?

I got an Ivy Bridge setup, just upgraded my specs.

May it be mouse or keyboard, both don't work.

Just checked sleep with F9d, and it works perfectly fine. I have my mouse and keyboard plugged to USB 2.0 ports (red)... Also make sure that you loaded optimized defaults after flashing new bios.
