First you should probably read the manual. But:
Use Qflash to update the bios. You will need a FAT32 formatted flash drive with the bios you want to load copied to the drive. You can either hit "end" while booting or "delete" and go into the bios and select Qflash from there. If you don't already know, the bios usually defaults to the graphical version, you can hit F1 once it loads if you'd rather switch over to the more conventional bios.
Maybe someone can link you to a tutorial on overclocking, or just search.

I finally put the UD5H inside a case (Lian LI A05N) and the PCH is overheating at idle. System fans run at minimum RPM (750) then a few minutes later PCH goes over 50C and both SYS fans go max 1300rpm. It needs a fan over the z77, holding a fan over it for a few seconds makes temp drop below 50 and fans slow down. Outside the case PCH & mobo temps were in the 30s. I don't like this. The case is still open, no side or top panels installed yet. Any ides?

USB Problem Solved

For the benefil of anyone who followed my usb problems earlier in this thread and for those who may also be experiencing usb dopouts or freezes, I solved my problem. I waited to make absolutely certain that the problem was solved before posting this. Just a quick recap; I have a Z77X D3H. I expect my problem and the solution may apply to any of the Gigabyte z77 boards. I was experiencing dropouts and even freezes of my mouse and keyboard, not to mention anything else plugged into the rear usb ports. It would sometimes freeze my mouse, keyboard or both leaving me to look at the screen without any solution. Occasionally the dropout would only last a second or even a few seconds then it would come back online. I would unplug and re-plug devices when this happened and it still would not recognize the device.

Now for the solution. I have done extensive trouble shooting listed in earlier posts. All the logical things or so I thought. I paired things down to only my mouse and keyboard and still no luck. Finally, just before I was ready to toss the motherboard for a replacement I bought a new mouse as the right button on my Logitech MX518 was getting sticky. Changing the mouse solved all my problems. Since my keyboard and other devices were also acting up I logically blamed this all on the rear usb ports. As it turns out, if one device is malfunctioning in any of the rear usb ports it effects them all. I cannot speak to the circuit design but it would seem as if they are all on the same hub or in some way connected electronically. I had tried every conceivable combination of ports while using the problem mouse without ever realizing that a defective mouse could cause a keyboard or other device to freeze. Now I know that all those ports are linked in some way and a malfunction in any usb device can effect anything plugged into the rear ports.

Hope this helps someone else with strange usb problems.

i had tons of usb problems too on ud3h, with latest drivers, latest bios, good config in bios, changing ports, etc, makes no sense

i had those 1sec freezes too on the mouse (ikari steelseries), sometimes devices auto disconnected or behaved weird

i don´t know but latest usb via, intel drivers, + new bios seems to have fixed the problem, maybe it was a problem with the usb ports hardware, who knows, but it was an annoying as hell

Only USB3 is at issue here. As per manual, F_USB30_1 is the only Intel usb3 on the board. All other internal and external usb3 are VIA. I've booted a flash drive off the usb3 in the back (VIA) but I haven't yet tried F_USB30_2 and F_USB30_3 at the bottom of the mobo. It would be strange if these are not bootable whereas the ones in the back are.

I finally connected the VIA mobo headers F_USB30_2 and F_USB30_3 on my UD5H and with default BIOS settings they are not bootable! But the ones in the back (also VIA) are bootable, that's bizzare. What do we need to change in BIOS to make them bootable? There are settings about "xHCI mode" but I've no idea what the manual is trying to say.

Ok just ran into a random issue. Sometimes when windows boots it hangs at the desktop. It only happens like 1 out of every 10 boots. But still annoying. Any ideas?

I think you answered your question. Temps are fine with board outside case; temps bad with board inside case. You need more airflow (more or new fans) or a new case. It's a simple airflow issue with the case and fans.

I had this same issue, added two 140mm side intake fans, problem solved.



Just getting started on this site, not much system building or OC experience since the Core 2 days. Here's a shot of my 3570k UD5H build.
