GIGABYTE Z77X Owners/Discussion/Information/Support Thread and Club (UD5H, UD3H, D3H, and ALL) - Page 341

post #3401 of 6656
Back from a 2 month trip away from my UD5H. Now running BIOS F12, and installed the Windows 8 64-bit drivers that are now on the Gigabyte site. Optimized defaults, mem profile 1, BCLK & C3/C6 left on auto. Essentially everything except mem profile on default. No problems sleeping, no crashes or freezes. I also set the Intel HD 4000 graphics memory to 512 (on an earlier bios & driver this used to cause freezes - now no problems). I don't know if the improved stability is due to the bios, the drivers, the OS updates, or some combination, but this is looking very good at stock.

The only issue that I still haven't completely worked out is some trouble recognizing a USB 3,0 stick (I have had to pull it out & plug it back in each time, then it worked fine - same things an all of the USB 3.0 ports but only for my Corsair 3.0 drive). But the flash drive failed yesterday and I had to RMA it, so the problem might have been the drive all along. We'll see.

So, basically, I'm a very happy camper at this point.

One question, is there any advantage to setting the internal memory size higher than the default 64MB? I would think so, but I haven't seen anything specific about this.

TIA

So I've gotten a relatively stable OC at 4.5 Ghz with my 3570k, but after 1:30-3 hours of P95 core # 2 faults out. Any help getting this rock solid would be appreciated. Below are the only settings I've changed, related to the frequency and power settings.

Cpu Ratio: 45
Turbo Power limit: 300
Core Current Limit: 200
LLC: Turbo
PLL: 1.6000
Vcore: 1.24 (same results at 1.25 and 1.26)

I'm not sure if I should try for a turbo overclock instead, and mess with the whole offset thing. This is my first real attempt on Ivy or with a z77 board. I can game on it at 4.5Ghz just fine, but it bugs me that I get a hardware fault in p95, it's just not acceptable. Maybe I'll try more voltage tonight when I get home from work, but my temps are already at the limit of where I'm comfortable...this Hyper 612 really isn't as strong of a performer as I'd hoped. Seeing some people pull off better temps with the 212.

Just play around with it till you get it so that your fans aren't driving you crazy. Make sure you hit the "set" button when you are done to test it out. You can also try using Speedfan too, but I don't know how well that works with this board. I used it on my old ASUS Socket 939 and it worked great. Or get a fan controller smile.gif

Does ET6 change the fan profile permanently in BIOS? It seems that any fan parameters you set persist only as long as the ET6 application is running... and ET6 doesn't run in Linux.

I'm really surprised that nobody here noticed that the BIOS triggers an alarm at 50C mobo temp causing all SYS fans to go on max rpm! 50C is not that high, and proper behavior is for the fans to ramp up gradually. Fix it Gig-o-myte!

Try 1.27v or more, this should fix it smile.gif

You can either increase the temp at which the bios will alarm or disable altogether. The bios does not control you fans; that is done by ET6 and ET6 has to be running for it to do that. You can set ET6 to start when windows starts so you don't have to start it every time you start your computer. In ET6, you can create a profile to adjust your case fans based on system temperature. If you feel they are going to max too easily, adjust the profile accordingly.

say for normal use with no oc (to run with xeon e3-1245v2) should i go with the ud3h or pay more for the ud5h?

Depends if you need the extra features.. But in reality the UD3H (or D3H) will do the same especially if running stock.

Apps like ET6 and Speedfan are great for testing but otherwise dangerous. These apps can crash and allow your pc to overheat and self-destruct. But BIOS does not crash and will continue to regulate the fans even if the OS itself crashes. I run Linux 95% of the time, so I cannot use these applets even if they were reliable. And frankly I wrote better apps than ET6 in high school.

The good thing in this case, is that the 50-degree cutoff is just a false alarm. This mobo is fine at 50C and (as you suggested) we can simply disable the BIOS' fan control, and run fans at fixed rpm around 30% to 50%. On my setup, at 50C all case fans kick to 100% making a lot of unnecessary noise, then stop just as suddenly 2 minutes later after mobo temp has dropped 3-4 degrees. I hope G fixes this bug, system fans should ramp up gradually.

Gigabyte has the best harware reliability but is still behind in BIOS. e.g. AMD chipsets include very advanced fan controller but so far Gigabyte is unable to implement/integrate it.
