I would say its the board and send it back pronto. Are you in your return period with the vendor?

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!

Your BF3 problem is probably not your PC. It's been all over the EA/BF3 forums, the latest server-side patch borked something up; seems to be related to Punkbuster taking screenshots now, every 15-20 seconds or somesuch, causing 1/2 second pauses or stutters. Try playing on a non-Punkbuster enabled server, and you should have a smooth framerate. Not sure is this server-side bug has been fixed or reverted yet, actually going to go play some BF3 now...

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?

Debug code is db

I took it to PC Club and they popped an 4GB stick in it and it got the same error. They also put in a Sandy Bridge with the same result.

Yes it doesn't go into bios... I see the blue UEFI logo screen come up for maybe 3-4 seconds and then it dies with the error code "db"

As explained, I've taken out all sticks except one and moved that one stick around. Plus took it to PC Club and they popped a 4GB stick and another CPU in just to make sure it's the motherboard. So now I'm pretty sure this thing is as dead as Nixon.

so if i throw in a Revo drive at 4x my main PCI-E will run at 8x?

Anyone else have a Gigabyte Z77P-D3 ?
post #2457 of 6656
Hi sorry, I posted here earlier this week about my z77 ud5h board behaving weirdly even after passing some stress tests I've done. Summary of my system: i7 3770k, overclocked to 4.2GHz 1.14 Vcore, 8 GB RAM 1600 MHz, GTX 670 stock settings, Win 7 64 bit, running in RAID configuration with Intel Smart Response (SSD Caching). Tests ran, MemTest+ in DOS overnight with no issues, Aida64 CPU,FPU,Memory,Disks and GPU Tests with no issues.

Here's my problem that I need help with. Cache tests on Aida64 fails randomly (all other tests have no issues). This happens at stock conditions with optimized BIOS defaults as well. I have tried both F9d and F8 BIOS and it behaves the same as far as I can tell.

The OS has been quite stable since the F9d BIOS update but my games still behave strangely sometimes. When I play for extended periods i.e. 2 hours, the sound suddenly gets cut off mid game (its an easy fix wit plug/replug), but almost always, the game crashes a few minutes after. (TF2 in particular).

Other games while not having sound oddities (yet...), just crashes randomly as well. I suspect the Realtek sound format to be the culprit here. I tested my speakers with another system with no troubles. Any else having sound issues? advices, tips please? Thanks for any help!!

I play BF3 all the time, however almost always on my clans server, and have never experienced this issue.

Playing on a non-punkbuster server? Enjoy getting owned by hacks wink.gif

Try uninstalling and reinstalling game. If that doesn't work, reinstall OS. Game issues can be almost anything.

Thanks, Sin. After yanking everything from the box and still seeing the problem I walked away in frustration. When I came back after a few hours the problem was gone. I'm assuming that a few remaining Windows patched got applied. Very weird indeed. I knew it wasn't an ISP issue because another PC on the same ethernet switch didn't have the issue. Thanks again!
