i think i am leaning on the G skill sniper - at 1600 - timing 9 at 1.5 volts - its on the list to work with my board - 16 gig kit -

what do you think of this one ? anyone using it - and with the same board ? UD5H -

i have it in my cart at amazon and its out of stock now - the board that is - Ram i have to get from newegg -

i7 from amazon -


i like the low profile ram kits in general - all those tall Rams - may look like - Whow - but i can see more problems with clearance in general - today i am going with watercooling - Antec 920
but who knows later - if that dosnt work out - and i have to go to a larger heat sink - dont want my Ram to be in the way -

so what do you guys think of this Ram ?

OK guys....I recently got a 77x-ud5h and paired it with a 3770k processor. It has been a long time since I built a PC(AMD PII 955) so I am in need of help. It seems my chip does not downclock at all and in fact runs all the time at 3.7-3.8ghz. I was under the impression that it would downclock to 1.6ghz. Also I am trying to figure out what I need to do for overclocking. This BIOS is overwhelming at first. I am not worried about overclocking my Samsung ram just yet. I first want to start with the processor. Any help would be appreciated.

If you have the default optimized settings loaded and installed windows it should be idling at 1.6ghz C1E and Speedstep enabled. Is your CPU running something in the background while you are checking?

Nevermind....I found that I have my power management set to performance:D

My next feat is figuring out how to overclock this bad boy and the get up the nerve to delid my 3770K.tongue.gif

I finally pulled the trigger on the UD5H - its on back order -

i7 3770k and 16 gig sniper Ram kit 1600 - at 9 timings -

i hope this all works together -

Did you turn on speedstep (EIST) and C1,C1E?

Also need to be balanced power setting in Windows.

The Z77X-UD5H has Windows 8 support so if you have any issues you can email Gigabyte

bold added by me.

I have my power setting set to performance (never turn anything off/put to sleep) and my cpu downclocks perfectly using offset.

i hope i dont have to use there support - good luck trying to understand what they say on the phone -

i have a hard time when someone cant speak english well and talks low -

dont mean anything by that - just hard to understand -

i hope it goes smooth - emailing would takes weeks - going back and forth

last time i emailed them - i got a email back fast but never tried to help me - - just said - update bios -


really - thats the answer to everything ?? i like to talk to someone to ask questions - and i did - just couldnt understand his accent -

i hope next time around i wont need support - !!!
