I always wonder why a person would put a new BIOS up for grabs and not list a change log.

Chalk another one for the "db error" brigade...

Core i7 Ivy Bridge 3770k
GSkill Ripjaw 1600/8GB sticks
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Palit 9600GT (yes it's old)

Ok, just got my new mobo, cpu, ram and cooler last night... built it up, popped it in my Antec case. Powers on, fans spin, no beeps, error codes cycle, graphics card info comes up (512MB video ram), blue-ish BIOS logo screen comes up... stays for approx 3-4 seconds giving me hope, then shuts off.

Hitting del/escape/end/etc doesn't alter the boot sequence at all... keyboard lights up.

The boot doesn't get far enough for me to see the bios version. Mobo/box says rev 1.0

Troubleshooting steps
  • Flipped the bios switch - same deal
  • Took the mobo out of the case and popped it on cardboard - no bueno
  • Put graphics card into different slots - no dice
  • Took out graphics card, plugged video straight into dvi ... - same problem
  • Tried different keyboards/mice - groundhog day
  • Took out all extra ram sticks.. leaving one stick, changed slots - same
  • Tried different graphics card - same
  • Bios short reset by taking out battery, holding bios clear button, shorting the jumper... etc etc etc.. leaving battery/power out overnight, sacrificing baby unicorns
    same deal
  • Reseated cpu/cooler - I think you get the picture now

So before I commit seppuku with a KFC spork.... figured I swallow my pride and ask here. I've gone through the thread and saw that techiegeek had the same problem. Any other suggestions?

I'm well within the NewEgg RMA period, so I've got no problem returning it if need be.

Thanks Everyone!

UPDATE

The one thing I haven't tried is popping an older Sandy Bridge into the mobo (because I don't have one). Looking at the supported CPU list, Ivy Bridge is supported at Bios F6 (April 26th 2012) and after. Since the BIOS logo comes up and it appears to be loading for a few seconds, might the bios be pre-F6 ?

My thought is that the bios is loading in the system info.. starts querying the CPU, gets back some weird info and then basically says, "*** are you, I'm outta here"

I'm going to head over to the nearest PC Club and see the techs can pop a Sandy Bridge into the mobo for kicks.

This isn't entirely accurate. My UD5H shipped with BIOS F4 and recognized my 3570k without any issues. If anything, see if maybe your PC Club has a standard 4GB stick of DDR3 that you can pop in to try and boot with? If your board was shipped with an older BIOS maybe it doesn't like that 8GB GSKILL stick.

Also, no debug codes on the motherboard?

F9e BIOS fixes profiles loading from USB. Not sure what else. I still get wierd IGP voltage reading.

Ive noticed tooo less Vcore can cause hangs in bios or windows. Best to use higher volts at 1st then slowly bring it down. Wanted to know if I should ENABLE EIST & C1E or just C1E on it's own? im trying to stabalise 5GHz

You guys are the only ones who seem to know these boards and this chipset in and out...

I NEED YOUR HELP!

Z77X-U3DH
3770 Not overclocked (3.9Ghz)
Win7 64 bit.

With a 560ti was getting up to 140 fps in BF3. The problem is network latency. Ping in game was 500+. Troubleshooting steps...

- Local network is fine, no congestion.
- ping to a particular website on this rig is 400ms+, ping to same website with a system on the same switch 20-40ms; put the z77 system on the same port as the other system, no change.
- Installed a Dlink NIC. Same problem.
- Pulled the new NIC and GPU, reset CMOS, load optimal settings, no change.
- System arrived with F7 BIOS, I flashed to F11, No help.
- Running latest Atheros driver from Gigabyte site.
- Set adapter to 100M/Full duplex in windows, LED is green meaning 100Mbps.

All Win7 updates applied. I've cleared CMOS at least twice and loaded optimal settings.

Does anyone know of a Linux LiveCD that supports this board well enough to be another troubleshooting step to eliminate/confirm Windows/driver issue?

I'm at a loss here. Thanks for any assistance!

Did all that. Reset router and cable modem. That wouldn't account for why another system on the same switch isn't having latency problems.

Dude i don't even understand what is going on, is the board refusing to go into the BIOS at all? If so check with 1 stick of memory, if not then try the backup BIOS, if that doesn't work then RMA it. You probably will have to RMA it, it sounds like the board might be DOA.

Yea dude, don't worry, all BIOSes even BIOS F1 or E20 or 01 fully supports Ivy Bridge. lol. How can a Z77 board not fully support an Ivy bridge CPU, i mean Z77 boards are made for ivy bridge not sandy bridge.

You can try rapid start technology, or disconnect some of your peripherals if you have many, each peripheral you connect has to be initialized on a cold boot.

I think that perhaps your ISP slowed down your connection or something, you have tried everything. I don't understand why people always think it is the board. Maybe there is a registry error in Windows, did you try a fresh installation? Did you try an older intel NIC driver?

So you are saying if you hook up another NIC that you have the same issue? Then the issue would be your ISP or perhaps the cable is messed up or somthing.
