For Z77X-D3H use latest F7 or F7h BIOS.

Hi. I have a question that I was hoping someone here could answer. I was planning to buy the UD5H motherboard and I wanted to use Gskill Ripjaws X 1600MHz RAM. I'm not sure yet whether I'm buying a Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge CPU. I've read that this board does not support ram at 1600MHz unless you're using an ivy bridge CPU. Is this correct? I don't understand why this would be the case but I'd like to know more before I commit to buying. Thanks.

I have my corsair arctic white 1600mhz ram running at 1600mhz mate using the xmp profile with no problem on my i5 2500k so it will be fine biggrin.gif

I am having a few issues setting a manual vcore on this z77x-d3h board would someone be able to help me out? I have set it to 1.25v in the bios with the cpu speed set to 4ghz and disabled turbo boost and all the downclocking utilities in the bios but when i am on my desktop the voltage according to core temp still keeps going up to 1.35 all the time. The processor is no longer downclocking as it did before but the voltage still seems to be changing a lot. Have a missed a setting somewhere? I have my ram on the xmp profile which has 1.35v programmed to it according to the bios but i left the voltage to auto and i think that is also running higher than it should at 1.5v!

Im going mad, this is my 1st intel chip so i am learning slowly biggrin.gif

Hope someone can point me in the right direction

cheers guys

Liam

That's great to hear. I've been told that the manual for this board specifically states that you need the IB CPU for 1600 to work. I wonder why they would put that in the manual if it's not even true...

I just checked and the RAM I want does support XMP, I guess that's good. I only just learned what XMP is 2 minutes ago.

it means that only ive bridge CPU's officially support ddr3-1600, which is true, whereas sandy bridge CPU's only officially support ddr3-1333. It doesnt mean that you can't use ddr3-1600 with sandy bridge, it just means that anything over 1333 is technically an overclocked speed. As far as the new Z77 motherboards are concerned, you can overclock your RAM up to ddr3-2133 with a sandy bridge CPU, and ddr3-2600 + with an ivy bridge cpu.

In short:

SB + Z68 = max overclocked RAM multiplier of 21.33 (21.33 times 100MHz BCLK gives ddr3-2133)
SB + Z77 = max overclocked RAM multiplier of 21.33 (21.33 times 100MHz BCLK gives ddr3-2133)
IB +Z77 = depending on which MoBo you have, max overclocked RAM multiplier of 26.00 - 32.00 (times 100MHz BCLK gives ddr3-2600 all the way up to ddr3-3200)

SB memory controller only "officially" supports up to ddr3-1333, but you can go higher
IB memory controller only "officially" supports up to ddr3-1600, but you can go higher

Sandy Bridge natively supports up to 1333Mhz RAM. Everything above is OC. That's about it, and you should be fine with G.Skill memory after change couple of things in UEFI.

I got UD5H too, love it thumb.gif. Now, I need to survive until Sunday for 3570K...
