This was a pain in the FACE to install!

z77x udh3 (

Silly me tried to install both my videocards (2xhd6950) and all my ram ,
and the usb controller for the antec 920 watercooling.

Tried getting this to enter bios with my optoma hd67 pj, no dice.
Tried with my lg tv, nope.
Tried with my 6 yr old monitor ...

Long story short: removing both vidcards , removing the usb controller for the watercooling and 2 ramsticks
and using the VGA igp and my 6 yr old monitor.. We gotz b00t and bios:D

Got pretty cheeky and tried installing both my hd6950s after a fresh win7 install... did not even post.
installing 1x hd6950 and drivers in windows, then installing the second hd6950 , success:D

Then the RAM and USB controller for my watercooling.


Nothing made sense, this is my 24th pc-build and the most confusing to date.

If people get the a6 debug error on the motherboard (the led in the lower right corner)

Remove your vidcard and use the igp, set up the bios and load optimized defaults, install windows and then install vidcard.

Tomorrow I`ll try Oc`ing my 2500k, hoping for 5ghz , guessing the antec 920 will land on 4.6-7 in my room.

Good luck on installing ppl:) hope u have less issues than I did

And btw , USB boot is not selectable in bios for some reason.

I see around that a lot of people are having trouble getting Qflash to see their USB sticks. Easiest solution for me was to install the extra USB 3.0 ports included with the UD5H in an empty 5.25" bay and use them instead.
I have it plugged into the first USB 3.0 header, I think.

interesting I haven't had issues with USB stick in FAT32, it worked fine everytime, but I did have one USB stick and it stopped being seen, but it turns out the stick was messed up anyways.

roxxphatcox- lol you really install your systems with Crossfire already setup? Did you update the BIOS to the latest?

Some of these boards have been at the stores for months already, as they were shipped very early on, and they have very early BIOSes, if you buy a board you should flash the BIOS to F6 for the UD5H and I think F8 for the UD3H.

Thanks!

if i remember correctly..you getting 16 lines via CPU (all PCI-E are 3.0 when running IB) third slot is PCI
so ;
The 16X slots all can be PCI-E 3.0, they are physically 16x, 8x, and 4x.
if you running CF/SLI you need to populate #1 and #2 slot for 8x8x PCI-E 3.0 (equivalent of PCI-E 2.0@16x) for SB you will get 8x8x PCI-E 2.0

wow this is pretty cool ;

listen we can do one better than just take screen shots, if you goto the last menu where it says save profile, you can save your profile to a USB thumb drive, and send it to me and I can try it on my system!!! I can fix anything if I see anything that is bad and I can send ti back to you and you can just load it up! It is a new feature implemented with Z77 and BIOS F6I, i tested and you can transfer from one board to another as long as they are both Z77X-UD5H. But you should also do the screen shots as it is easier and other people can chime in
I didn't know about this thumb.gif

one question ..can i save my bios settings and view from mem stick ?

You can save to mem stick, but the file is a coded file, you cannot view it from a computer, it can only be read on a board of the same make and model, and i think any BIOS later than F6I. Yea it is prety cool feature they finally added! Really cool stuff, I already tried it an it works well between boards. Yea it is pretty cool huh?
