GIGABYTE Z77X Owners/Discussion/Information/Support Thread and Club (UD5H, UD3H, D3H, and ALL) - Page 39

Ofc I install my systems with crossfire setup! The technology is centuries old ( atleast a decade:P) , if gigabyte were to release a motherboard
unsupportive of crossfire @ yr2012 ... And required a bios update to function, I`ve picked the wrong card, haha:)

When I install a mid-high end motherboard with a brand new chipset, I expect it to function with 10 year old technology out-of-the-box
as advertised... Maybe I am mister crazypants, who knows:D

The stranger part is not being able to boot at all with other than the integrated gfx controllers, that was more concerning.

I think the Evo has the same dimensions as the Hyper 212 Plus, just hoping someone here has used one of those heatsinks with the UD5H and can let me know.
Hmm, checked ivymaxwell's photos, looks like he's using the 212+ and it's a real tight fit.

I'm using the Hyper 212+ and have it pointed up. It blocks one of the RAM slots for the height of my GSKILL Ripjaws F3-17000CL9D-8GBXM. If I buy another set one won't fit unless I turn the fan horizontal which IMO would be less than ideal since my case (P280) has fans/grill in the top.

that isn't the amp, you gotta look at the actual chip it is separate from the ALC898 codec, its made by TI. It is a DRV632 and there are two of them. Hardware secrets hahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahaha. I am sorry but you made me laugh.

Here is the datasheet to the amp:
http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/drv632.pdf
there are two of them used, one for back panel and for for front panel header. it says 600ohm

ALC898 you can't advertise a amp just with it alone.


Yea, ALC898 is DAC, could find any info on the amp itself, so I assumed ..... well anyway I am pretty much noobish in whole audio thing redface.gif, want to get first decent pair of headphones smile.gif, but can't allow nice amp yet. So this helps. Thanks for that!

And, happy to know that I made you laugh biggrin.gif.

Found them on PCB: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

EDIT: After reading your preview more carefully, I see that you covered it in detail...

#7. This is where the audio output gets even better than other XF-I packages, two of these TI DRV632 which each not only improve the sound output but also are amplifiers and provide head phone amps built into the board. NO LONGER ONLY ON G1!!!! The UD5H now has some cool decked out audio as well.

I think there may be something wrong with the F6 UD5h BIOS dated 4/26/2012. My system occasionally freezes out of the blue and have to hit reset, this is while running stock settings. Never had this happen while running any previous BIOS on this board. Anyone else had something like this happen on F6 UD5H BIOS? (I'm running a 2500k)

It passes 20 runs of IBT and memtest at 4.5ghz, yet I get occasional system freezes out of nowhere while just browsing the web at stock settings after updating to F6.

I have a very similar setup so I will report if anything odd happens. How often is this happening? Is everything updated to absolutely the latest drivers (not necessarily the ones on the install disk)?
I did have a couple of instances of Internet Explorer 9 64-bit app hanging, but it was only ever on one web site (tweaktown!), so I suspected it might be a bug with IE9 rather than flakey hardware. It recovered and didn't hang the machine completely.

hi im using z77x 3dh and a i5 2500k. f7 bios stock cooler stock default.

there is a too much of difference of my cpu idle temp in bios(around 42~46)/easytune vs hwmonitor .
i don;t know which one to follow before i proceed to get an noctua cooler and oc the cpu.

pls advise which one is the correct reading or any other tips will be gladly appreciated.

thank you

I found that Easytune reported my CPU temperature well below room temperature - So I don't believe it at all!
Other people have noted that there are different versions of Easytune around, although I used the one suggested for Series 7 chipsets on the Gigabyte page for the motherboard.
I am finding HWMonitor reporting perfectly believable temperatures, although the version I have got seems to have a lot of other issues!

yes there is a major difference between easytune and realtemp, IMO use RealTemp. But hey 90C is okay.

I'm just building this system, and have yet to do any overclocking, but I also am having problems with freezing and BSOD's. I'm trying to track down the problem. Memtest seemed fine after one pass. I'm also using F6 final. r0ach, which BIOS version were you using previously?

both of you are using 2500K right?

Can you guys tell me what BDOS says? what stop code does it give?

Also you might want to try flashing back to BIOS F6I for now.
