Just ordered the UD5H along with an Ivy Bridge 3570. Can't wait to see it!

I have a Noctua NH-L12 heatsink, so it would be difficult to install/remove an mSata from that location.

Its hardwired to one of the SATA 3Gb/s ports (if you use mSATA, you cannot use that SATA port or the other way around).

Its useful in one of the following situations:
1) Test bench (no need to bother with cables).
2) No space left for SSD in the case .

mSATA SSDs are quite expensive now, and I would not bother using one unless there are some space problems.

I've changed to BIOS F10a, Gigabyte must have changed their structs... TweakLauncher is not finding all the values where it expects them to be, so it displays garbage in some of its text fields. I'm expecting a new BIOS or a new TweakLauncher.

Hi guys,

I want to buy a Z77 board and at my location I am limited to choose from a few motherboards.
2 of these are the Z77x-D3H and the Z77x-UD3H.
I already bought the Core i7 3770K. I am planing to O/C it at the future.

So, will the Z77x-D3H be enough for overclock? (how much can I reach with air or watercooling?)
It has only a 4pin power connector. Will it be enough?

As for the UD3H, is 19euros more expensive than D3H. I really don't need the eSata ports. I only consider buying because it has 8pin power connector.


So which should I buy? Does the 8pin worth the difference?

I plan to use mine either as a dedicated cache drive or as a gaming drive (or both, if I get a nice big one). If I get a 120GB or even 64GB I can put a 32GB cache on there (I plan to buy 16GB more RAM) and then the rest can be used for my games. The only advantage I can think of is that you won't have to use cabling but maybe there are others.

I thin the 8-pin and the other OC features like the dual BIOS switch and POST code, and vread points might help. Otherwise it is your decision. I think the UD3H has a more friendly BIOS structure, like OCp limits set higher.

Yea i think the final BIOS will be different.

It was only when I increased the vcore in slight amounts I got the error.

List all of your equipment. Identify which ones were purchased new and which, if any, were transferred over from your previous computer.

Have you tried using the iGPU?

Which ram? The Kingston HyperX I assume. I haven't tried to OC it yet. The rig that ram is on is in the process of being modded so it doesn't have much up time lately.
As far as the G Skill Trident 2400 on the other machine, it benches pretty good with the Profile 1 setting, but I've been absolutely unable to OC it at all. I tried some of the Samsung Green ram and the fastest I could get was the x20 multi I think. Good ram for the money but the board isn't very friendly to it in terms of OC.

Yes. The RAM is the one thing I'm most concerned about now since I heard Gigabyte motherboards have a history of being the most finicky of all motherboards when it comes to ram compatibility. Since I'd like to OC to at least 4.0 Ghz eventually, perhaps I'd best go with the Corsair Vengeance 2400 MHz 8GB kit (CMZ8GX3M2A2133C11R) instead of the Kingston. Anyone using these modules with this board? Success stories? Failures?

The UD3H is actually the UD5H and the UD5H is the UD3H.

It's like ASUS using their V-Pro series mobo to break WC's and not their ROG ones. Giga has made this situation a lol-fest.
