Huh. Was looking at some posts on TT about installing Corsair Force GT SSD and having it default to GPT. I realized mine did the same thing when I installed it, never got around to changing it, actually forgot about it. Anyone else had this behaviour? I know what the fix is is, just don't want to reinstall Windows right now. Just curious how many had the BIOS default to GPT with an SSD? I think that was back on the original F4 BIOS.
Getting ready to fire up my 2nd UD5H again in my new build pretty soon, I think I'm going RAID with my 2 Samsung 830 SSD's. Anyone had any problems with RAID and SSD's? After all these years I have never set up RAID on one of my machines, though I did it on a work pc years and years ago that was running a Paradox database (pita).

@Blast, he went through Gigabyte. I did the same thing with one of my boards, it has had bent cpu pins. It was about a 11 day turnaround for me AFTER they got the board and back to my door on the E coast.

Hey there, i'm interested in buying the Gigabyte z77x ud3h and this place seems to be the best to ask some questions.

After reading some of the latest replies it seems most of the people have problems with the bios, is it really that bothersome; are there any other problems i should be aware of before buying?

Secondly how is the VIA VT2021 codec compared to the Realtek we're all used to? I have never heard a VIA VT2021 codec so i'd be grateful if you could pitch in with an opinion. Hope i finally decide on what to buy, thanks and have a nice weekend.

Hello all,been following this great thread and finally decided to join
And straight to the problem..
I have ZZ77-UD5 and 2600K (full specs should be visible below)
Now,all my problems started with another board,so not sure its UD5 problem,but maybe i can find fault
Before i had Asus P8P67 Pro,have some problems with it and after 3 RMA's decided to sell it and went for GB UD5
Before that,i cleaned my pc from dust (like every few months) and after putting back all parts pc didnt started (Asus mobo)
After looking for error code it showed me that this is memory,so i did typical procedures - one ram stick testing with mem test,all ram OK and passed test.
Then after few rebuilds i find,that if i put all 4 sticks ram,pc wont boot,and finally i find,that one ram slot not working,i tried all configurations..I thought it was mobo problem and ordered UD5
After rebuilding my pc with UD5 same happen again,only now it was different memory slot..Then i started thinking maybe its my cpu memory controller went bust?
Atm i have 2x4Gb in dual channel,not 4x4Gb..
Tried all bioses,atm im using F10a (which is great BTW)
Any suggestions would be extremely appreciated
If you need me to do some rebuilding or some kinda configuration changes - just tell me what to do
Thanks in advance

If the problem is following the cpu it may well be the cpu. Other things could maybe be bent cpu socket pin, dust or something in the ram slots. Have you tried each stick of ram at a time individually to see if there's a problem with just one? Have you verified that it's always the same ram slot that fails with any stick of ram?I would try one stick at a time but if all test good then inspect the ram slot that always fails. It might work back to the cpu but just may be a unlucky coincidence.

as i write already - yes,i did that
thing is,its the same problem with both Asus and Gigabyte boards,just different slots on each
not much chance i guess that 2 mobos fail?
will do last rebuild and try adding every part and start,will see how that goes
ram is OK, tested in working slots on both boards
cpu pin bent on 2 boards - doubt,dust - doubt..
cant wait what Sin suggests

i doubt there are lot of complains,most of them is user related,and considering those boards (UD5 especially) have lots of bios tweaks,not every user know what he is doing
other than that,its cracking boards and i personally now will buy GB boards (i was Asus man for many years)
i just miss on some features in Asus mobos for some price range,and GB giving me much more for that,also board build quality iz amazing
all problems can be solved releasing bios updates,thats what GB doing,last Asus bios for my old P8P67 was probably 6 months ago
F10a is very good bios,at least for me
if you delay,you can also delay until lets say some Z87 release or Z98 or something wink.gif
just get UD3 or UD5 and be happy
