GIGABYTE Z77X Owners/Discussion/Information/Support Thread and Club (UD5H, UD3H, D3H, and ALL) - Page 355

Well, After like 2 hours of screwing with it I finally got my Z77X-UD3H to accept the new F17, quite a number of things that I was experiencing were fixed for me, I'll itemize them below.

1.) BIOS Splash Screen: Previously with F11 bios, and F8 before that (that it shipped with originally), I never could enter bios by hitting the DEL key, it just did not work, bios would continue booting as if I'd never pressed it. I always had to hit F9 for system info, then mash the DEL button furiously imedetely after clicking the "OK" button, to get into bios. NOW With F17, DEL works on the Splash Screen and BIOS comes up.

2.) Ram: My ram I'm trying to use in my Z77-UD3H is 8gb (2 x 4 GB) Kingston Hyper-X DDR3-1600 1.65v ram. (I know this system is supposed to use 1.5v ram). In the past before today, with F8 bios and F11 bios, the XMP Profile would not work. If I selected XMP for 1600mhz memory and saved and exited bios, system would attempt to boot, then power off, then come up saying OverClocking Failed. NOW With F17, I selected XMP, rebooted, and it's running windows and everything is awesome.

The only other thing I noticed different is while in BIOS, I saw something about "Improve Legacy Benchmarking." to improve results with Legacy Benchmarking Programs. I'm not sure why we'd concern ourselves with that, but I have it on anyway. Sometimes I like running older benchmarks like 3dmark 2003 just to see how my systems do with older games, should I ever want to play them.

So far, F17 seems awesome! thumb.gif

Tweaking all those hundred or so memory settings is tiresome and annoying... I just set it to XMP @ 1600mhz memory and go and enjoy it, not sure what timings it runs but it gets 20k MB/sec in Sandra, that's more than enough for everything I do (3d games), so... it's fine.

Hey guys, I'd figure I would post this in here. I just received my ud3h and one of the capacitors near the cpu vrm broke off the two pins that are still currently sticking up from the board. Any suggestions? Should I find the same cap and re-solder it to the board or should I go the RMA route? Thanks.

Unfortunately, RMA.
Keep in mind that if you rework it yourself, you will invalidate any warranty.

If you broke the cap, you shouldn't be RMAing... you should be contacting Gigabyte about doign a repair that would keep your warranty intact. By RMAing on a product that you damaged you are increasing the costs for all of us honest customers.

Thanks.

Sorry, yes, if you broke the cap, I agree, RMA is not appropriate.

I wouldn't worry about disabling it,it's only Intels turbo boost.When it downclocks to 1600 it's just a power saving feature because it doesn't need max.
I only update my bios through the bios.

If you want to disable it you need to go into the bios and cpu features and disable turbo boost.

well, second day on the F17 bios on my Z77X-UD3H, and while it was great all last night playing games, today I wake up and doing simple tasks like browsing youtube, making an html page in ms office and trying to download a new game via STEAM the system is constantly crashing with bluescreens and nothing will run right. And yes I've loaded system defaults in bios after the update, and set all the settings back to how they were with the previous F11 bios. I guess it's back to F11 for me later today... I have another system project I'm working on first. But I just thought I'd write in.. F17 on UD3H, unstable with the Core-i5 3450S (Ivy Bridge). I had no stability problems for a month on F11 btw, that was the only system / hardware change: the new bios update.

EDIT: Are these motherboards some how designed to prevent us from flashing to an older bios version? I've downloaded this F11 bios image like 5 times and used two different flash drives and a USB hard drive, and it keeps coming up as "Invalid Image" when trying to use Q-Flash in bios. Does anyone have any idea what gives?
