Maybe Realtek drivers for Windows do the trick?
BTW I have the first revision of the board that has blue caps and space between dimms. It may be fixed in the new one with purple caps and no space. Also I have F14 UEFI running...

what's all this blue/purple/space and no space ..mambo jambo ..am i missing something ? biggrin.gif

From what I've read so far, the first Gigabyte mobos that were sent to reviewers (and probably the first batch that hit the stores) had blue capped capacitors. The latest ones have purple capped capacitors. This is no big deal, could only mean that Gigabyte has changed supplier, or rating (to an equivalent one) or the cap manufacturer has changed the ink :-).
The other thing that seems different (IF I got i right?) is the spacing between memory sockets (I don't remember which one has more spacing between the middle two) that makes me think of a redrawing of the PCB. This could matter since layouts usually do not redraw themselves.

Could it be the revision 1.1 has hit the stores in stealth mode (that is, disguised as version 1.0)?
That would be good news (for new buyers, that is biggrin.gif )

Any word from Gigabyte, Sin?

I just got off the phone with Gigabyte to ask about the revision differences before I purchase. They stated that the only difference is that the board is shipped with the latest bios.

Mine has the purple caps and came with the f7 bios, i rightway updated to the f14. Didnt notice the space on the memory slots, will have to check that later.


BTW, I noticed some thing wierd on mine, so i did set my vcore on bios to 1,320v. Ok, on windows, cpuz and HWinNFO64 shows the vcore @ 1,308v. Now, when i ran a strees test, like IBT, on full load, doesn't matter if is standart or maximun, the vcore drops to 1,284 and goes back to 1,296v.
Is that alright?

Yep, that's vdroop right there.
It's nothing bad if your system is stable like that. If you want to overclock without changing multipliers when idle, you disable turbo and c-states and enable llc (load line calibration setting, prevents the vcore to drop under load, to a certain extent). You can find that setting in the 3d power section. Just set it to 'turbo' and you should be golden.

Random question - does anyone know if the zalman CNPS12X will allow the G.Skill Turbulence II fans to fit on the GA-Z77X-D3H?

yea it should be fine:


The capacitors themselves are the same spec just different supplier. There is no rev 1.1. The UP5 would be the next step in the 5 series progression with regards to PCB routing and such, perhaps that is why I was able to do higher BCLK than I could with any other board. There has to be an actual change in part spec or placement for there to be a revision change. I can't give any official statement as I don't work for them, you would have to ask them about that.

Sin, is that a 7990 right there? tongue.gif

What's your best bclk yet?

actually NVM i am ot sure it will fit on the D3H i just noticed that is some older GB board.

My top BCLK is the WR for LGA1155 116.95mhz.

But then, i could do the same stable OC with lower vcore if was not the vdrop?
