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?
What do you call overheating? It's normal for it run up in the 50's. No big deal and nothing is about to burn up. Mine is sitting at 56 right now.

Even with two 140mm intake fans blowing on it my PCH temp in the BIOS is in the 60's.

The mobo kicks all the system fans to max RPM when mobo temp goes over 50C, it's noisy, it sounds like a vacuum cleaner.

Yea, the chipset does get rather warm on these boards. Mine is around 59C while folding 24/7... doesn't make me too comfortable as my old EP45-UD3P chipset never cleared 40C ever. lol

My EP45 rose to the same as the core value, it was about 2-3c offset. That was using Speccy though.
This chipset is heaps cooler! redface.gif

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).
Cheers thumb.gif

OK, its was the PSU .After doing a Benchtable Setup and testing a different PSU I checked the 24 Pin Connector and found a loose pin.

Everythings running fine now. OC to 4GHz with 1.070 Volt atm.

Now to assemble that WC setup again. .... Sigh.

Hey guys, got another question for you, how long does it usually take for the beta bioses to become official? I wouldn't want to void my warranty but the f13 fixes look really attractive. Thanks and have a nice weekend.

That seems strange given the size of the case. One of my UD5H boards is in a HAF 922 and I've never seen PCH temps in the 60's. You are that hot at normal use? What ambient temp?

That doesn't sound right to me. Like I say these chipsets run hotter in general, but when you say "mobo temp" you are referring specifically to the PCH temp? Neither of my UD5H boards ever did that. I mean both rigs are water cooled now but even with air cooling I never had that problem.
You don't have your rig specs filled out so I have no idea what all you are running. Still, doesn't seem right.
