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

Sounds like a bad cpu as you had already indicated. Only one way to find out. Swap in another cpu and test. If it still fails, you can always ship cpu back.

You are misinformed but believe what you want.

Hi Everyone,
I have two small UD5h issues. I feel lucky after reading some of the stories in this thread. Trying to search this thread for help is a disaster.
MB: UD5h - F5 firmware
CPU: 3750k
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 4x4gb - 1600mhz 1.5v
PSU: Seasonic 760
1) 1600mhz ram is showing up as 1333mhz. If I turn on XMP "profile 1" to get 1600mhz the computer refuses to boot asks me to go back to bios. Ram is working fine, shows as 16gb and 1.5v.
2) During a cold boot or restart the computer will reset itself in the middle and boot again.
I'm hesitant to update the bios to the popular F6 without asking here first.
Thanks

F5! Update your firmware either to the latest official firmware or jump on the latest beta.

Lots of updates in so few days make me think that either the board was released prematurely or there could be a hardware issue that Gigabyte is trying to patch by tweaking the bios in a way to lessen its impact on most users. I mean, a manufacturer that releases updates is good, a manufacturer that releases updates every other day, though way better than one who does not care about its customers, is struggling with an immature product, IMBO.
I was wondering if the lack of capacitors under the cpu slot, unique of Gigabyte's design, could have something to do with the freezing problems so "many" seem to experience. What would happen in any other board that has such caps if they were to be taken away?
I want to stress that I am not implying that the UD5 is a badly engineered board. I have no idea what those capacitors are for, nor if they are needed on boards with other chipsets. But I' pretty sure somebody on this forum does and perhaps she/he will care to reassure potential buyers like me (I am running a GB board since 2002 and it never let me down - I love their quality).
I don't know, maybe these are the risks of buying a product in Intel's tick phase. Besides I had a look at the 'errata' for the Ivy Bridge processor and got scared of how many bugs are there.

This has already been addressed in this thread. Take 2 min and do a search and you will find the discussion. Final conclusion was just mudslinging by competitors. But you probably already knew that.

Give to give a heads up, F10a is a total fail bios.

I can boot at 4.5Ghz at the same settings with bios F9e and all the previous ones but i can't with this one. As soon as I reverted back to F9e, it booted up at the exact same settings.

Welp, upgraded the bios from f5 to f8 and now X.M.P profiles work.

No issues here pretty painless now time to overclock. rolleyes.gif

listen guys BETA BIOSes aren't meant for everyone, they are just test BIOSes tossed out there for users to try and test out. many of them implement odd little tweaks and such sometimes to test problems and other things. Ali Man with F10A, please enable Cpu PLl over-voltage. F9E doesn't have this option i don't think.

The CPU PLL Overvolt option came in the F9D and also the F9e, I'm running F9e as we speak and hence I compared it to F10a.

Ever since I upgraded from bios F7 (which I shouldn't have), problems have started arising and now even if I revert back to F7, the problem is still there.
If I restart my PC, it would actually shutdown and then turn on after a few seconds and boot into windows. Now if I wanted to Shutdown my PC, I would press the dam shutdown button and not restart. And guess what? this also happens when I turn it to sleep. So I click the sleep button from windows, it goes into sleep, then turns on and then goes off. And this happens every freakin single time and I'm like ***?

Now after going through all bioses, the beta ones and the ones on the website, nothing seems to work. This is surely giga's fault, I wish I never got this board in the first place. I was sold upon it's specs, but personal experience speaks otherwise.

I surely am misinformed but the last pages of the thread doesn't seem to do justice to what these gigabyte boards really are or people say they are. I mean most of the reviews put it high up there among the best at this price point but if you take a look here, there are a lot of complaints coming with every new version of the bios, it kind of worries me. My question is, am i set with this board ( ud3h) for overclocking a 3770 to 4.6 or should i look somewhere else?

The purchase is planned for Monday so please if you could expand a little i'd be grateful.

i find F10a very good bios,much better than any F9
from your post,it sounds like it was user related problems rather than board or bios,or maybe faulty board
and i just love such things like "i wish i never got board in first place" - if you think other manufacturers have less problems,you are very mistaken,im working for one of the biggest EU retailers and most problems is user related,this applies also to Asus,MSI,ASRock - any
keep in mind,that this is 2012,not 2008,where only few manufacturers making memory,video cards,etc etc,and after every release every board (including video,sound - all) needs time to find problems,this is just impossible to do in factory,otherwise we will be waiting new parts appear in market only every 5 years
not happy with board - RMA it,and if after you still be unhappy - back it to your retailer and chose another

Hi all:

I confirm that the solution to freeze the system in MB GA-Z77 D3H is:
1. optimized BIOS values​​.
2. BCKL to 100.10 MHz
3. VCore --> 1.1 v in i5 3450 (imagine that this voltage is valid for all i5 and 7 right?)

I have 3 days without freezing, suspending the machine for hours, activating it from the suspension, leaving it unattended for hours and playing and giving power to the Max Payne 3.

Other partners involved, that this is going?

I am your wait!

I haven't been getting any love from any of the recent beta BIOS, and always return to F8 final. I'm starting to think more and more it involves the crossfire setup with the 6850's, as sooner or later I will see a bluescreen with one of the AMD drivers listed. This just hit me this morning, and I haven't tried disconnecting the crossfire bridge yet. Other than that absolutely no problems so I'm happy with F8.


Anyway I thought I'd ask again if anyone running Samsung 830 SSD's in RAID, any problems, setup, etc. About to fire up my other UD5H pretty soon and I intend to run the 2 128GB 830's in RAID. It's been absolutely years since I've set up RAID, guess I'll need to RTM to get started off. Now where is that thing...... wink.gif
