A PWM fan can be controlled by either pwm or voltage. It seems like Sys_Fan1 is using voltage control while 2/3 is using pwm.

My cougar fan exhibit high pitch whine when placed in Sys_fan2, but when inserted into Sys_fan1 the noise is gone. So i'm deducting sys_fan1 is using voltage control.

In speedfan PWM2 label, that setting controls all Sys_fan1/2/3 at the same time with different types of controls I guess.

Found solid evidence SYS_Fan1 does not use PWM control with physical hardware.

I just used a Rosewill Model RCW-FPS-401 12" PWM Splitter
Voltage is powered by a molex while only the PWM signal (blue cable) is sent from the motherboard along with a green tachometer.

Hooked up two PWM fan using it to SYS_Fan2. I was able to control the speed in speedfan.
Tried it on SYS_Fan1. Zero fan control. They spun at full 12Volt and max RPM.

Now if i plug my PWM fan directly into SYS_Fan1 without using the splitter I was then able to control speed again but via voltage.

You can also verify that Sys_fan1 header uses voltage control by connecting a PWM fan to it and setting speed of PWM2 to 0% in Speedfan. If header outputs PWM control then fan will continue to run at minimum speed, if it uses voltage control then fan will stop because voltage goes to zero. Try this with headers 1 and 2 and you will see that they behave differently.

Put back pins in right position, carefully place CPU in socket, mount new cooler (do not tight to much)....and voila thumb.gif, mobo work like charm now. biggrin.gif

Btw,
as per your pic with 2 RAM sticks installed, you are not running dual channel.
Incredible. Just incredible.

First off, this is yet another moment when I am so grateful for good samaritans who offer useful advice here. And generally, it's great to have this forum with such knowledgeable people involved, who are civil.

This issue was both irritating and debilitating, making me lose usage of my computer that I built for professional video editing, after recently upgrading just the case to an Antec Nine Hundred (giving up on PWM control for all its faults on this board, opting instead for "fan overkill" using all of the Antec tri-speed fans firing at their lowest speed, rather than trying to get fewer/smaller fans spin up and down using PWM, which is a nightmare on this board).

When re-attaching the Hyper 212 CPU cooler, I screwed each of the four corners in tightly -- not excessively, but not lightly. I RMA'ed the board after exhaustive diagnosis, finding it totally bizarre that the farthest two slots worked great, but not the closest two. (That would make sense if it was a channel issue, but it wasn't.) Gigabyte technicians were equally puzzled, after recommending a few BIOS tweaks (e.g., higher DRAM voltages), and claimed -- perhaps incompetently -- that they'd never, ever heard of this problem.

I just installed the replacement motherboard -- not fun -- and examined the old one's CPU pins.

BAM. One of them was bent.

The new motherboard works great, back in form.

I suppose that this problem would have been resolved anyway because of the replacement, without me knowing the reason; but I certainly screwed down the cooler more lightly this time, because of stasio's advice -- and I recommend you do, too!

Thanks again, stasio. And boo on Cooler Master for not emphasizing this installation issue enough.

Glad it got worked out. Gotta be honest tho, I've never bent a pin installing a heatsink. True the coolermaster is sh** to mount, but I'm surprised tightening it good and hard bent a pin. Something to watch I guess.

^^ Yea,glad that's work. thumb.gif
Another advice is to keep memory (video card) contacts always clean (I using soft school rubber).

Good! thumb.gif
I have two UD5H boards, and one of the reasons for that is because the first board came with bent cpu pins! Newegg refused RMA but Gigabyte replaced the socket with no questions. My guess is when the cpu socket cover was inserted it was done so badly and that is when the pins were bent. Only a guess, though.
While waiting for RMA I bought another one. This is when they first came out, and I was dying for an upgrade and had a little spare cash.
post #4218 of 6656
Is the UD5H any better for over clocking than the UD3H? I'm looking to be able to push my 3770k to around 5ghz; will either of these boards be able to do that or do I need a better board?

Either should do fine. VRM on UD5H should stay cooler though.

I got the GA Z77X-UD3H and I am having some bizarre issues with either it or my ASUS 680GTX DCU2.

Integrated graphics work - HDMI and DVI.
My 680GTX in the x16 PCI-E slot I get nothing, No Signal Detected. - HDMI and DVI
But here's the kicker.. My old 560 Ti works just fine in the x16 PCI-E slot on this board, automatically detects and everything, currently using it to post here!

I thought the 680GTX might be DOA, BUT it works perfectly fine in my brothers AMD setup.... this is what has really got me stumped.

I am absolutely at wits end with this and I wonder if anyone has experienced anything similar?

EDIT: I should also mention that I had initially had a 700W PSU with 30A 12V rails.. I have also tried a 700W PSU with 57A 12V rails to no aval.
