Hey to all you Z77X owners!

I'm looking to buy one myself but i'm trying to get clarified on a possible issue.
Quote:
Gigabyte further warns that all three of the board’s x1 slots are disabled whenever a PCIe x4 (or larger) card is installed in the bottom slot, since only four of the chipset’s eight lanes are available for expansion.

(http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/z77-express-ivy-bridge-benchmark,3254-18.html)

Does anyone know if the UD3H also behaves like this?

Thread Starter 
the UD5H doesn't behave like that, but the UD3H does.

The UD5H gets its PCi-E lanes for the 4x slot from the CPu not the PCH.

I format my drive today and put W8 Enterprise Eval on my PC to see what is to come in 2 months in terms of experience with the OS and install; without any settings changes in the BIOS or disabling Superfetch, the PC seems to be 100% stable. There have been no crashes, no freezes, no instabilities. It has been going since about 11am, give or take about 30m for drivers installation restarts and other tests I performed.

As of BIOS F15 I also haven't seen any VIA USB 3 dropouts whatsoever. Granted, they went away almost fully when I moved the hubs and usb 2 devices to the usb 2 ports but this is more than that. I performed USB switch ups both with the PC off as well as on, trying the hubs in USB 3 ports and swapping the keyboard and my 2 USB 3 drives around. 100% of the time before now these change ups would result in a VIA USB 3 dropout of something plugged in. Now? Nada issues.

The Intel USB 3 port (under the LAN) now activates early enough to be able to go into the BIOS reliably. Before, there was a 50/50 chance that it was not active until some time after the BIOS logo went away which meant I would miss getting into the BIOS. Because of this, I resorted to pluging it into one of the VIA USB 3 ports instead. Doing this meant that if I had to use a USB flash drive or did any kind of OS boot or install, I'd have to manually switch to the Intel port (since the VIA USB 3 port requires drivers after boot). The Intel port still doesn't power up the keyboard fully as the VIA USB 3 port initially where the LCD lights up, but there is keyboard function which is all I need to get into the BIOS. Leaving it in the Intel port means that I can also easily install my OS or run pre-boot items without swapping ports.

I can say that today I have more faith and respect in GB than I did even a month ago, way more. If the board remains stable and trouble free for the long haul, they may have a(nother) loyal customer on their hands and I might finally be able to say I've replaced Abit as my number 1 board builder.

So I just bought me a GA-Z77X-UD3H and just have a big problem with it right now. When I am running it on my antec 300 with the i5-3570k cpu. The problem I am having is that when it is on sometimes it will turn off on it own. And I am also just installing Windows on it and for some reason after a while there will be a red line on the left side of the screen and it will stay there for a while then the computer will restart out of nowhere. I don't know what the exactly problem is.

Sorry for bothering you once again smile.gifWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
It's about your theme / skins. I've just downloaded the files but I can't make them work together
Actually I've installed Rainmeter several times, adding the taboo_Vision folders inside the program's directory but There's something I miss cause' it won't work doh.gif
Can you tell me which version of the Rainmeter did you use (default location, x64 yes or no)?
And if there is any other tip to get all the taboo_Vision skins work on my desktop ninja.gif
