GIGABYTE Z77X Owners/Discussion/Information/Support Thread and Club (UD5H, UD3H, D3H, and ALL) - Page 31

post #301 of 6656
I just got all my new toys in the mail today. I've been thumbing through the manual for my UD5H while at work and noticed there is a power port for "chipset heatsink LED's". Are there LED's in the headsinks? I haven't seen any mention of this until I saw it in the manual so naturally i'm intrigued. Can anyone clarify this for me.

Don't have any of those installed. I turned off all the C states and turbo modes/etc and have 17DPC while idle now. I still think it should be able to go lower. Also, for some reason after flashing to F6i, my USB stick is no longer recognized in the bios so I can't upgrade the bios again, have to figure out what setting is messing things up.

There are no LEDs, but on some boards there is a small connector labeled HP Power, it provides like a 12v output, but IDk why it is there, there are no LEDs. perhaps it was something they originally planned and forgot to remove? I am not sure.

did you load optimized defaults after you flashed? Also you should try re-flashing the BIOS.

Admittedly, I'm green as grass about OC'ing, but I'm reading as much as I can, as fast as I can.
Does anyone know if this combination will work out of the box (with the appropriate bios update applied), or not? - UDH5, i7-2600K, DDR3-1600 MHz
Will the memory work with some tweaking or should I lower my expectations to 1333 MHz?
Again, thanks so much to everyone participating in this support thread and club. Good Stuff!

I'm running some old Samsung memory (MV-3V4G3D/US) at 2133, 1.5v. Got some G Skill Trident 2400 on the way....

Hi guys

I seem to be having a strange issue with my new z77x-d3h board where it will just randomly on a reboot inform me of a boot failure. I have not overclocked anything, everything is on auto voltage the only thing i changed was the memory to the xmp profile so it ran at its full 1600mhz speed. I am going to run memtest just to rule out any issue with my memory which is 8gb corsair arctic white low profile. The strange thing is when the message appears i click to go into the bios and i dont change anything and press f10 and then it will boot into windows fine even though it has the same settings it told me produced a boot failure.

Any ideas to why this might be? CPU temps are idle at 25c, motherboard temps 30c and PCH showing 48c so i dont think anything is overheating. The CPU vcore is auto like everything else with all the downclocking etc on enabled

Hope someone can help

Cheers

Liam

Had to use @bios to flash from F6i to F6 in Windows. Now my USB stick is recognized in the bios again. Seems like F6i wasn't too good of a bios.

I have been experiencing the same thing. I have my 2600k running @ 5050MHz (101.0 x 50), ran P95 for 12 hours stable, then on my next reboot I got a 'boot failure'... clearly if i can run P95 blend for 12 hours I shouldn't be getting a boot failure.

Unfortunately, like you, I do not have a solution to this issue. We'll have to wait for a new bios update perhaps..

Hi Liam,
I too had the boot error. With me it would happen every 2nd restart in windows.
Flashing the latest BIOS from TT help. No problem with the BIOS (F7) yet.

Regards.

Yes Liam, that was the issue every 2nd restart and it should be fixed by latest BIOS update.

It only occurs with 2600K, and they fixed it.

Michael when it says boot failure what exactly does it say? What is your current speed? Can you try flashing to the latest BIOS which came out today, it is F6.

Just updated to BIOS F6; still can't see my USB stick from QFlash; I don't know what I am doing wrong.
Apart from that, F6 looks OK so far with my 2500K
