Hi Neo

I am using a 37in Panasonic LCD TV which may have adjustment but as this only happens at the bios screen, if I tailor it for that then everything else would be impacted.

I will try a DVI to HDMI to see if the HDMI is at fault but it cant be anything within Windows which is impacting it. (Or I wouldnt have thought so, although the starting windows screen is half across as well until the log in screen appears)

I will give the onbard a try tonight as well.

The only USBs I have working are my front case ones which is how I have got by but this is not acceptable and for all of the hassle, I might just have bought a better board and paid the extra cash.

I will contact the supplier today also and see where I stand.

Cheers
Sean

They need to roll back BIOS releases for the UD5H. F7 dated May 11-12th is still the best BIOS for Sandy Bridge chips on this thing. I've tried them all. They all have freezing issues once every few days, but F7 freezes the least and can go an entire week sometimes without it happening.

The official F8 currently on the Gigabyte site is pure garbage. If I load up a non-graphic intensive game called League of Legends on F8 BIOS and run into the enemy base, the framerate goes down to like 10 FPS for no reason and I have an Nvidia 570 GTX playing a very low requirements game. This issue hasn't occurred with any other BIOS I've tried, just F8.

With F10a, the thing freezes more than older ones such as F7. I believe F8 and F9 also gave me a slightly less responsive mouse cursor (input lag), so they probably were screwing around with some kind of USB issue on those too.

Please god, just rollback to F7 and go from there, because none of these new changes have done anything to make these boards better.

that special BIOS I gave you roach, did you try it? it might hurt your OC ability, but just see if it causes a freeze with your sound card in.

Haven't tried it yet, was re-trying all of the standard ones again first. I only have mine at 4ghz too. I tried running it stock but the freezing issue is still there on mine, so it's not OC related.

Once in a while, not often I'll get a Windows message about one of the VIA USB 3.0 hub ports. Mostly I use the USB 3.0 off the Intel port and no problems but occasionally I use the rear ones and I may/may not get the message. pita.
@2therock: he's right the UD5 has the VIA hubs, you don't load a driver for those.

^^Thanks you two^^

Sleep is in Windows/Settings/Power options,,,, not BIOS. They are thinking some BIOS do not play well with Win7 Sleep.

Maybe so on Sandy Bridge but on my Ivy Bridge its a different story than you tell. F7 & 8 play very well on mine. F9q ids the best for me though.

Yes please try it, and if there is ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE WHO HAS A PCI DEVICE SUCH AS A Sound card and you have freezing please let me know and I will send you a special BIOS to see if it solves your problem. The BIOS i sent isn't the best for OC, but if it fixes your issue Roach, with your Audigy 2ZS then they can implement the changes into the final BIOS.
Also have you tried another CPu or an older board? Because I had degraded my 2500K and it was causing my issues at stock, but when I oced i had no issue because vcore was manual lol.

Yes F7 prob was one of the better one for Sandy Bridge, as GB did some power optimizations for Ivy Bridge. Tuning one way will give best performance on one CPU, tuning another way or balancing might not give full potential. However they are working on it, and since day 1 this thread has brought the BIOS very far. The Z77X-UP5 TH is based ont he UD5H BIOS and is very strong as well, so early in its release.

When you folks use a PCI device such as a sound card, are you going into device manager and doing a "disable" on the on board device you are replacing? Maybe this will help?

My Agility 4 should be here tomorrow so let me ask, is there anyone here currently using the UD3H board with an Agility 4 SSD with NO ISSUES at all?

I'm thinking I may just throw it into my HTPC and get something else since both Sandforce and Everest 2 are shaky with this board (as reported elsewhere).

Thanks.

Nothing changed in BIOS. I just went into control panel/power options and get to the point of Advanced Power Options and set up individual options. Allow hybrid sleep, don't allow hibernation. Set up your display and HDD's for however you want to manage them. Nothing complicated, really, took about 2 minutes. I have my display go to screen saver in 45 minutes, and the whole system sleeps after an hour of no activity. Only thing I don't like is having to log back in after sleep and I haven't seen a way to change it yet. Maybe it defaults to that since I have the Windows logon setup enabled? IDK. No big deal, though.
