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.

It says something like "there has been a boot failure: 1. load optimized defaults and boot, 2. load optimized defaults and reboot, 3. enter bios"

im currently running at 5050 MHz, 101 BCLK and 50x multi

yeah i just updated and so far so good... we'll see how it holds up.

Apart from that, F6 looks OK so far with my 2500K

I was really not too impressed with this motherboard at first, after I flashed to "F6", things are starting to look good. The motherboard didn't even properly down clock my 2500k with any BIOS before this one with all motherboard defaults loaded. Now it clocks down to 1600 mhz instead of bouncing up and down between 3300-3400 at idle. My Steelseries Sensei mouse also felt "off" with every BIOS before this, now it feels mostly identical to my previous board (Asus 55i Sabertooth w/ i5-760). This motherboard was clearly not capable of supporting Sandy Bridge CPU's whatsoever with the BIOS it shipped with. Hopefully things will be smooth from here on out.

There's a few things I can't figure out still. This board has a VIA and Intel, integrated USB3 controller, yet I don't see any way to disable the VIA one in the BIOS? If i just want to run a bare bones system with lowest DPC possible, what other stuff can I disable besides the following?:

Marvel Sata 3 controller x 2
Atheros LAN
Integrated Sound
Integrated GPU
HPET

I also found a firmware update for the integrated VIA USB3, haven't installed yet:

VL810 Superspeed USB Hub Controller Firmware 0.95 – Released Mar 23, 2012
FW – Windows Utility that upgrades the firmware used by the VL810 Superspeed USB Hub Controller. (32-bit / 64-bit Compatible)

Change log for VL810 firmwares.

Thread Starter 
you have a UD5H or UD3H?

on the UD5H the VIA isn't a controller it is a hub, it turns 1 USb 3.0 port into 4, on the UD3H it is a controller and the board uses one to provide 4 ports on the back of the UD3H, that is why 4 of the USb 3.0 ports wont work in windows without drivers, only 2 that are Intel will. If you have the UD5H i would disable the Atheros if you don't use it. Probably turn on some power saving features. I think UD5H has 1394A you can disable that too, idk why they still put that on motherboards. Also the audio on the UD5H has two line drivers, but you can't mess with them.

It's not commonly used by most consumers, but it's still the interface of choice for portable multichannel audio interfaces. Just to give you an idea of how many there are, go here or here.

I have an RME Fireface 800 that I use with my for recording and mastering. Having firewire on both my P67 UD7* and my laptop allows me to use the Fireface at home or at another location with ease. If I didn't need that portability, I would probably invest in a PCIe setup since it would be more flexible/expandable.

Until recently Firewire was able to achieve better latencies, bandwidth, and CPU usage than USB2. Some new interfaces have been able to achieve low enough latencies on USB2 to allow many I/O channels, but there aren't very many. Maybe USB3 has improved a lot in those areas, but I haven't seen any compatible interfaces yet.

*NOTE: The P67 UD7 has a TI 1394 controller which is usually preferred over VIA controllers. Some VIA controllers have had major compatibility problems with some audio interfaces. It's unfortunate that the VIA chips are much more common when integrated onto motherboards, but PCIe 1394 cards with TI controllers are available if necessary.

My UD5h, F6 BIOS, DPC results after disabling Atheros LAN, integrated GPU, integrated sound, Marvell Sata controllers, and HPET with all other settings on default:

567

This DPC number for F6 BIOS is improved over F6i, but then after a while, I started noticing huge spikes. I'm currently trying to track down the cause of these spikes then will post what it is. I believe it's most likely BIOS related and needs a fix because I have a fresh Windows install with nothing exotic on my system (570gtx, Audigy 2ZS, Steelseries Sensei Mouse, OCZ Agilty SATA2, Samsung SATA2 HD, both on Intel SATA2 ports).

Also, right after I flashed to F6 while still having all bios settings on default, I clicked on a youtube video and the system froze while watching a video without flash even installed on Chromium browser (Chromium not Chrome). I've never had a crash like this before on my Asus 55i Sabertooth + i5-760 install and this Gigabyte build uses all the same parts except motherboard and CPU, so I think it might be a BIOS problem that caused that crash too.

THis is a bit off topic, but i Just ordered an msi 580 for my 3570k and ud5h, and the day after i get it in the mail it gets discontinued! I found this out cause i went online to order another and they are not available. ***? So now newegg wants to charge a $60 restocking fee, even though the card hasnt even been used? Ridiculous...anyone know a way around this? Could i return it as defective? Feel free to delete this if you feel it shouldnt be in here...which it probably shouldnt...sorry.

Have you tried LatencyMon? It will show exactly which process is causing the DPC spikes.

When I first built my main rig (P67A-UD7), I had really inconsistent DPC latency problems. Sometimes it was smooth sailing and other times it would be max red bars non-stop. I finally found out that it was my BD drive that was causing problems. If there was no disk in the drive, then the DPC latencies shot through the roof. It turns out that there was some sort of incompatibility between that drive and the Intel SATA 6Gb/s ports. I moved the drive to one of the SATA 3Gb/s ports and the problem went away completely. Maybe the drive needs a firmware update, but I haven't bothered looking.

If you have an optical drive on one of the SATA 6Gb/s ports try moving it to a 3 Gb/s port. Also try plugging USB devices into different ports to see if the problem goes away. I've also seen some people recommend disabling C3/C6 in BIOS.

Have you looked in our Marketplace? You might find a good deal there on a used 580 to match yours.

Here's the results of my DPC spike investigation. Test was done solely while browsing web pages on desktop with F6 BIOS. I had no DPC spike issues with my previous i5-760 build and I used all the same parts from it for this UD5h + 2500k, just changed the motherboard and CPU.

1st Analysis with Xperf (Windows Performance Analysis Tools):

DPC CPU Usage Summary Table:
291

Interrupt CPU Usage Summary Table

2nd Analysis with LatencyMon:

Hardware
Gigabyte Z77 UD5H w/ 2500k CPU
MSI 570 GTX Reference card
Audigy 2 ZS PCI sound card
Steelseries Sensei mouse @ 1000hz plugged into USB 2.0 port on back of case (with Steelseries Engine software installed)
Logitech K120 Keyboard plugged into USB 2.0 port on back of case

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

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

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.

Hi guys thanks alot for the feedback really appreciate it, dont know if i mentioned its a i5 2500k im using on my board, i have checked the gigabyte site but i can only see bios F6 on there? is that still the latest for the z77x-d3h model? As for the error message itself when it comes up normally on a 2nd restart like you mention the speed its showing the cpu as is 3.5ghz. I have not overclocked it but i guess it must be from the core boost perhaps which is enabled i believe?

I am going to look at overclocking my 2500k soon would it be best to disable the core boost do you think? I was thinking of leaving the intel speed step things enabled so it downclocks at idle is that ok do you think?

Thanks again guys

Liam
