I'll update my specs, forgot to do that, and yes I'm running the UD5H with 3570K and Corsair Dominator Platinum 8GB 1866Mhz, already running my RAM at its native speed, set that in BIOS

Ok, back in BIOS. I moved the Keyboard from a USB3.0 Port to a USB2.0 Port and it worked no problem.

Hey,

it will take a while. With a heavy heart I have to disassemble my new machine frown.gif

Say Goodbye.

I bet man, disassembling a WC setup would take twice the effort than just a simple air cooler. Good luck man.

Sadly, I've decided to RMA my UD5H & go for an Asus . At first it seemed to be working great, but then I started experiencing quirky issues that I've seen others experiencing here & elsewhere. For example, buggy USB 3.0 (and 2.0) ports. I too experienced a random but sudden dropping of my mouse & keyboard (but at least no lockups) which forced me to plug them into 2.0 ports to get them back. So I tried all BIOSs after F7 and discovered that if I have a certain device plugged into any of the USB ports (a Sony PS2 game pad with USB adapter, which I use CONSTANTLY, so leaving it disconnected is not an option) I can no longer boot into BIOS. Also, waking from sleep mode causes reboots with BIOSs after F7. Enough is enough. The board was great when it worked, but these little quirks are just too annoying. Someone here said it had a buggy BIOS. That's almost an understatement.

So, lads, unless someone can talk me out of it, I'm going back to Asus and will getting an P8Z77-V. Or possibly an MSI Z77A-GD65. I'll miss that great Realtek ALC898 sound codec though if I go for the Asus.

I have decided to do an RMA on CPU AND Board (both bought from the same shop), since I can't crosscheck Board/CPU. I can't be normal if I have to provide the values manually. Something is wrong.

I guess you have to do what you think is best for you, but taking a look at your posts I am not sure I completely understand your issue and not sure that you have done some basic troubleshooting to justify rma'ing both board and cpu. My understanding is that you were experiencing freezes at stock settings when stressing system. You ran memtest on you memory and no errors, but increased the memory voltage anyway? Then you updated your bios and at stock settings ran two stress test programs simultaneously (?) and the system froze.

Seems like you had also made some other manual settings changes (i.e., turbo enabled/disabled, manually setting vcore, hyperthreading enabled/diabled, etc.).

Again, I think you should do what you think is right for you, but I am not convinced that if you would have just updated the bios to the latest official version (F8) and loaded optimized settings and ran stress test (i.e., one of them; not two at same time) and see how things looked that maybe a better solution could have been suggested. Good luck with whatever you wind up with.

Hey,

I admit, it seems a bit chaotically. A lot of what I did and tested has been posted to different forums.

0) Read some articles, explained to GF why I NEEDEd an new gaming rig :-)
1) Machine Assembly (without GPU -> Waterblock was still in transit)
2) Bios at F4
3) Flashed to F8 (because of overclock.net and tweaktown forums)
4) Loaded Optimized Defaults, left everything CPU and RAM related on Auto, just changed convenience settings
5) Windows Installed
6) Drivers Installeds
7) Imaging
8) Used GFX for testing (Played some Games) -> Freezes
9) Suspected iGFX Fault
10) UUsed Furmark -> Slow as molasses -> Test ok
11) Waterblock arrived for real GPU -> Assembled
12) Stresstested for GPU -> Furmark fine
13) Stresstested for CPU: Linx/Linpack -> Hard Freeze -> ***?
14) Checked BIOS Settings related to CPU -> Auto
15) Memtestx86+ -> OK
16) Lots of CPU Testing (Stock Settings, Voltage Settings, RAM Voltages to 1.55 just because)
17) Lots of Hard Freezes when testing CPU, Always temp monitoring -> temps mostly between 45 and 65 °C
18) Playing some games, posting in forums and smoking some pot -> everythings fine, people are friendly
19) Tryed other BIOSes (F10, F10x, F9q (most stable for me))
20) Tested Linx and Furmark on my old machine (Two Stresstests simultaneously, CPU and GPU -> no Problem)
21) Used GPU and CPU Benches on new machine -> sometimes ok, sometimes Freezes
22) Talked to online shop where hardware was bought -> told me to send Board and CPU for testing (since I cant crosscheck with different Board and different CPU) -> RMA: Return Materials Authorization
23) Wrote lengthy post
24) Having to explain now to my GF why new gaming rig steals all my time and money :-)

Again: RAM seems ok (Memtest fine). The GPU got its Air Cooler back and was installed in my old machine -> no Problems. Gaming is great! Looking forward to finally use my new watercooled rig!

So, the GPU and RAM is fine. leaves me with CPU or Board Problems. Maybe PSU?

I really like my Gigabyte Board. I wont exchange it for an ASUS. I hope, that my Board or CPU is just defective and I get a new one.


@fasty: You are right. This photo looks a bit like some organic life form. Its looks more industrial in real life. Black and white was a must, because it raised the acceptance level of my GF (she uses mostly Apple devices).

******* FREEZING ISSUES *********
All those having freezing issues PLS try THIS :

Have you got Intel RST drivers installed ???? if yes Uninstall them
Try to install the Windows 7 basic AHCI drivers
Device manager IDE/ATAPI controller -> update driver -> Have disk --> choose the Standard AHCI 1.0 serial ATA controller should be driver version 6.1.7601.17514

Reboot tell me if ur windows loads faster see if the freezing persists.

Just got hold of a freinds machine Asus P8Z77-V premium i couldnt believe how slow bootup was. Wierd issues some bios options missing. Upon checking he had VGA installed in wrong slot (SLi) & DVDRW in wrong sata port. After correcting this everything went smoothe. Just goes to show sometimes we all make mistakes.

I experienced freeze issues today on UD5 experimenting with Intel RST drivers. I think i know what you guys mean. I uninstalled them & everything working as it shud be.

Pls try this & let me know i may be wrong but its worth a try.

What's a good set of 8Gb RAM for the UD5H?

My current RAM crapped out and in all honesty wasn't the best RAM for the board so I want some stuff that will work with the board and not fight it, prefer it blue as well so it matches the heat sinks...
post #3330 of 6656
These look good but no idea if they would work. 8GB modules fairly new prob best to stick with 4GB. If you can buy em from somewhere that accepts returns no hassle then why not.
Also heard Kingston work well with Gigabyte. Gskill are good. The Samsung ULV also great if you only run 2 x 4GB i can hit 2133 no probs with 2 sticks and 1866 with 4 sticks (could be cos im runnin Sandybridge)

16GB Mushkin Enhanced Ridgeback LV #997073 (2x8GB) 1866 (PC3-14900) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM CAS 11-11-11-27 1.35V
