You don't have your rig specs filled out so I have no idea what all you are running. Still, doesn't seem right.

Thank you. It's the 2 temps shown in the BIOS, or TMPIN0/1 in CPUID Hardware Monitor, they're with 1-2 degrees of each other on my UD5H. I have fans set to "silent" in BIOS so they'd be running at minimum (around 700rpm) and after a few minutes one or both temps go over 50C and ALL connected SYS fans kick to max (~1300), that's very noisy and it's strange that they don't ramp up gradually as usual.

I have a Noctua NH-L12, so I connected the 2nd smaller/inner fan, it's not need for the CPU but it blows enough air on the mobo and PCH to keep them under 50. I can't add more fans, the Lian A05N already has 2, front/back, and I've run more power hungry stuff in that case before without problems. The mobo is mounted upside-down in the A05, that probably contributes as heat form CPU, memory and VRMs rises. You can see that Gigabyte made the z77 heasink as huge as possible in all directions to combat overheating.

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.

Ha, F_USB30_2 and F_USB30_3 are not bootable with BIOS F8 but work with F10a. What were the changes in F10a??? Do we really know what the changes are in any of these beta BIOS?????

Im running F9 ATM
On another Note my Chipset runs about 50 c..it seems that is the norm for these chips/boards.....it was running about 60 c
but turned on my side fan..... now it is about 50 c Im wondering what it will be when I start to O/C ??
AP514

I've got that board, safe to say that the latest BIOS is F11. Running it myself, it's actually more stable than F9 but it has no extra features from what I've seen.
Find it here Gigabyte Beta BIOS, i'm not saying nothing can go wrong though so flash at your own risk smile.gif

I'm still running F7, going stick with my "if it ain't broke" mentality. Until they add new features I see no compelling reason to flash again.

Hi guys, I'm considering the UD5H for my new build but I've read a few things that I want to be sure about.

First off, apparently the TRIM function for SSD drives isn't supported by the controllers on this board, is this correct? I've yet to even use an SSD, is the speed difference with TRIM actually noticeable?

I've read that the system 4 fan header is 100% on all the time on the UD3H, does it also apply to the UD5H? If it does, are the rest of the fan headers working PWM?

This board supports TRIM as any other Intel chipset based board. However, there is no TRIM support on Marvell ports IIRC.

Fan headers behave the same way as on UD3H, unfortunately. If you care about proper fan control, get a fan controller...

How to Verify TRIM is Enabled
In the start menu search box, type" cmd";
Right click the cmd program and select Run as Adminstrator; and
In the command line type "fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify".
if DisableDeleteNotify = 0 TRIM is Enabled.
If DisableDeleteNotify = 1 TRIM is Disabled.

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 had all sorts of simular issues with an eSATA box not letting me cold boot, USB ports reloading - as in all of a sudden they would disconnect and then I get an auto play window like I just plugged it in, and some other naggers like NO wireless keyboard entering BIOS..

My formula for success was RMA'ing the board to Gigabyte with a full written report.

I got the board back (It Had F8 on #1 BIOS and F7 on #2) and before connecting anything but the PSU & DVD drive, using the VGA port I booted to Memtest to stroke my RAM = passed.
I then put my 1TB RAID1 HDD's in and did a command prompt to write two passes of Zeros to them. It took 6 hours. = Rules out a bad OS install.
I then put my GPU in and with no other devices I did a clean Win7 Pro x64 install.

To shorten my story I am a happy camper. I have ZERO % of the issues it was sent out with. With F9q my wireless keyboard inters BIOS 99% of the time with the other 1% being caused by my finger timing.

I am happy because I like the dual NIC, the Retro PCI slot and the available ePCI slots. When the board was @ Gigabyte I looked around like a disgruntled consumer and nothing had the layout and spec in a combo like the UD5H for me.

I am now running a VERY stable 4.5 clock. Good Luck

The Marvell controller is what I meant to ask about, sorry about the confusion. Does that mean the 3 other fan headers can do automatic control through PWM/voltage? I plan to buy a real fan controller later on but I wanted to experiment with the boards automatic control in between that time.

I don't recommend even using Marvell ports unless you already filled the remaining Intel 6Gbps and 3Gbps ports.

Fan control on these boards is pretty much bad. You can control fans on CPU and Sys_FAN 1 headers through voltage and PWM. Sys_FAN 2 and 3 support PWM only according to manual.
I never tested SYS_FAN 2 and 3 personally since everytime I decide to get my Intel heatsink out (the only PWM fan that I have is on it), I end up not doing it, so I can't confirm if PWM control even works on these headers.
SYS_FAN 4 as you already know is always 100%.

Hope this helps thumb.gif
