Here is an odd question for the UP7 owners.

On the motherboard, there are 2 2x4 ATX 12V connectors instead of the typical 1 2x4 ATX 12V connector.

Do I need to populate both of them from my PSU or just one?

My SeaSonic 1000W Platinum I PSU has both a 4P/8P EPS12V/ATX12V cable and an EPS12V 8P cable, so I could plug both in, but I'm just not 100% sure I should. Given this is the first time I've encountered this, I want to make sure before I risk frying over a grand worth of CPU/Mobo/PSU/Memory.

It's for extreme overclocks. I'd probably use one for light to mid overclocks. Maybe the both for crazy/insano oc's. One must be used, but using the pair is optional. Hope this helps. It just a feature, not a must do.

It doesn't really matter, you can plug in both, or just one and it really won't make a difference for a day-to-day rig.  I've got both plugged in right now, but one would more than suffice.  The only time I really need both is when I'm using LN2.

XF-I should install on windows 8, but only the driver fromt he site, make sure you use the drop down menu and fin the windows 8 driver. Also first you need to install the realtek audio driver.

i just install it yesterday, and work fine biggrin.gif
idk what did wrong before

im going to buy the
G1. assassin 2

its a goad board for windows 8?
since i saw gigabyte website theres still few drivers for this mobo (windows 8 64 bit)
anyone who actually has it can tell me how this mobo truly works in 24/7 gaming rig?
- Between my z77x-ud5 and G1. assassin 2, wich its "better" , sounds like dumb question, different sockets, right, but as board the G1. assassin 2, its solid rock like the z77x-ud5h?
i mean, my actual board z77x-ud5h its ultra durable 4, and the G1. assassin 2 its only ultra durable 2?
wich one its better?
(despite the fact that the G1. assassin 2 has truly creative hardware onboard)

Ok, I didn't know if it would not boot with only one, etc.

What about for non LN2 overclocking? Say 5GHz on a 3770K? Think that would need the second one?

There are just so few people with this board, hard to find the answers.

hi guys. i have 2 questions very important. the choice of ram can implicate a better overclock with lower cpu voltage? Can you tell me a perfect model of ram for my ud5h + 3770k?

One would be enough.

I currently have the bottom one populated.

Hey everyone, I just wanna ask a question. I'm getting a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H and a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler but I've heard that the CPU cooler blocks some of the ram ports. Is this true?
post #4079 of 6656
If that's the case, just use some low profile dimms.

Hey guys,

Quick question guys. I have the UD3H motherboard. When I try to populate all the ram slots, it results into a boot loop. Tried different tests on it and found out that ram slots 2 and 4 does not work. Is it maybe because of a bent pin in the cpu socket? Actually, its two bent pins.

Yeah, it sucks I bent the pins on the cpu socket. frown.gif

Cheers!
