GIGABYTE Z77X Owners/Discussion/Information/Support Thread and Club (UD5H, UD3H, D3H, and ALL) - Page 34

post #331 of 6656
Okay, so the Gigabyte manual is just being cautious and saying 1600MHz not officially supported, as opposed to saying it's impossible. That's good to know. I haven't seen the manual personally, I probably should have downloaded it and had a look, maybe it's clearer than the second hand info I read. I'll probably buy the UD5H board and likely a 3570k but I wanted to see if I still had the option of using a 2500k on this with 1600MHz RAM. I've been using a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P since 2008 and been really pleased with it. My friends keep telling me to only buy Asus but I'm not listening. Thanks for all the info, guys.

Hi matey i have not actually done that, i will have to have a look and see what settings it has for it. I think its set on normal which is the middle one if i looked at the right thing before. It states the higher the LLC highest being extreme that will keep it closest to what is set in the bios underload

I didint reliaze that SB only supported upto 1333mhz memory and using an xmp profile of 1600mhz would actually be overclocking smile.gif

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

Make sure the stick is configured as a fat32 drive.

Also, I have had this problem on several motherboards of all makes. Just use other usb ports and one of them will work.

I think Core Temp (like Real Temp) reports the VID. This is the voltage that the CPU requests from the motherboard based on the frequency and load that is is currently under. It is not the actual voltage that the motherboard is supplying to the CPU.

To read the actual Vcore, you need to use one of the many hardware monitoring programs like HWiNFO64 or HWMonitor (or use a voltmeter if your board has the probe points available).

CPU-z should also report Vcore, but it sometimes reports Vtt on some Gigabyte boards. The latest beta version (64 or 32 bit) may have fixed the issue, but I haven't tried it yet.

Thanks for that tip, Electroneng.
Actually, I had read about formatting to FAT32.
When I just flashed to the "new" F6, I did a few things that made it work :
(1) I put the USB stick into one of the USB3 ports instead of a USB2 port
(2) I entered the BIOS setup first to "let the BIOS see the USB drive" in the list of drives, saved the settings and rebooted
(3) Now entered QFlash, and voila, the USB drive has appeared on its list.

Thanks for this mate, i have hwinfo and hwmonitor so i'll check them out as cpu-z only ever really seems to give a vcore of 1.088 or something around that mark which cant be the correct vcore

Hey guys,

Just ordered my Z77 UD5H. I have a quick question on the PCI 3.0 lanes. Is the bandwidth deteremined per slot? As in #1 = 16x #2 = 8x #3 = 4x or is it determined on which ones are populated? My question is can I put my dual 680s in PCI Lanes 3.0 lanes 3&4 and still get x8/x8 ?

Thanks!

I ordered this board yesterday. How is the audio everyone? I was going to go with ASUS but decided they were not worth the extra money this time around.

Best audio I've ever heard from a motherboard. Better than my previous Gigabyte Z68 board.
I'm using it to play .FLAC files through HiFi system, and it sounds good to me.
