Hi i m going 2 buy an i7 3770k Ivy bridge processor and am confused which motherboard to select out of these 3: Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H AsUS p8z77-V LX and Asrock z77 Extreme 4. in terms of features, performance and longevity. my budget is Rs 13000 (Indian currency). Thanks.

Asrock has analog vrm, that Asus model is ok, but has less value. I'd opt for the ud3h, and if possible the up4 (it shouldn't cost much more). rolleyes.gif

I would be interested in knowing what the fixes were if anyone has that information.
Also, what RAM have you used for this board that is rock solid. Not a big over-clocker, just want rock solid reliability and fast performance for GPGPU development (Nvidia KEPLER) with lots of RAM. Thanks.

Anyone else have opinions on this board? I am about to pull the trigger...

Let me list you all known problems with UD5H, and let you decide on yourself.

Audio doesn't work in Linux (no idea why, but desoldering resistors helps according to some).
I experience DPC spikes, but some don't. Still investigating this problem.
Almost all Z77 boards from Gigabyte, including this, have very limited fan control options.

Otherwise it's a very solid board.

You may consider UP4 as an alternative if you want to.

^ UP4 has less power phase, no heatpipe, no wifi, no esata, & no Debug LED / CMOS reset , but Thunderbolt & ultra durable 5

As a side note for UD3H, I realized if I decrease V_Core at 4.5GHz to 1.25V instead of 1.26V then sometimes it refuses to turn on the USB 3.0 ports on the bottom right which results in my wifi adapter not working.

Also fan control is "bad" on Gigabyte boards but still better than OEM... you just can't compare it to Asus. I noticed the fan control doesn't detect whether it's a voltage fan or PWM if you set it to Auto which means it runs at 100% always. The solution is to just set it to Voltage /PWM manually. AFAIK Gigabyte (non 3D) BIOS is still better than Asrock/MSI in terms of having fan ramp up instead of percentages.

Actually UP4 and UD5H have the same amount of "true" PWM Phase count, they all have 6 Phase IR3567 PWM, UD5H have doubler so it has 12 after the doubling.:



Also UP4's IR 3550 Mosfets runs a lot cooler(also much higher quality, rated 60A) than UD5H's so no heatpipe is not really a con.

Quick question, I havn't been in the Ivy overclock scene at all, and am looking to get a 3770k and overclock it as high as possible. I used a UD5H before on a 2600k build and it did great, although I had some sleep problems. Im just wondering if overclocking is all im really after (Ill run a gtx 660 or 670 with Lucid), which board is the suggestion one to be looking at? Don't really want to spend more than UD5H, and will be getting a Corsair H100 most likely in order to keep it all cool.
Thanks!

So can the SYS_fan header 2 and 3 be controlled with software or not?

So much wrong information in this thread. I know cpu fan and sys fan header 1 only can be controlled, but the other fan headers don't give fine-tune control.
