My UD3H is bios F17. Would it be worth it to update to F18? Only change was "update CPU microcode" according to the Gigabyte website. Not sure if that's important.

If it works for you, no reason to upgrade.

I personally try all new versions, including beta ones. And you can always downgrade, so there is no risk of being stuck with an inferior version.

Dual bios also minimizes the risk of failures, so try it yourself.

On the UD5 board -

how does the dual bios work - in the event system crashes - does it automatically switch over to the back up bios and then restores the main bios ?


Do you have to use the bios switch or does it do it automatically ?


i my computer would be in a area where it would be hard to reach and open up to do that - so was hoping it works automatically -

- Marvell Preinstall Driver
- Marvell SATA Controller Driver
- Marvell Storage Utility
Do I need these last 2 if I just want normal operations and not take advantage of any of the extra features?
Also, I haven't installed BT drivers but I already have the following older version in device manager
BT Radios
- Generic BT Adapter
- Microsoft BT enumerator
Network adapters
BT Device (Personal Area Network)
BT Device (RFCOMM protocol TDI)
Should I go ahead and uninstall these before I install the new one?
You don't need any of those preinstall drivers, and definitely don't install the Marvell drivers. Windows has drivers that will handle SATA drives better than the clunky Marvell ones.
I'm running SATA III drives on the Intel and Marvell headers with no "extra" drivers installed. Basically I install the chipset drivers, USB 3.0, LAN drivers, Intel MEI and whatever drivers you need for various devices. Won't hurt to install Intel IRST but sounds like you won't need it.

For bluetooth I know nothing about it.

I think it does because one time when I booted I got a message saying "BIOS corrupted, switching to backup" or something along those lines. That said, after rebooting and going into the BIOS again I was back in the primary BIOS except it had reset to defaults.

(sorry for double post, missed this one)

The switch is there in case you have problems with one bios you can easily switch over to the other one. Sometimes when one gets corrupted, the board will use the other bios, but it's not a sure thing. You can shut down, throw the switch then restart.
Often people find that having both bios with the same version (once you get everything running like you want it) to be more trouble free.
To flash the back up bios same as the main bios hit Alt + F10 while booting. (manual switch must be on main bios)
To flash the main bios from the backup bios hit Ctrl + F10 while booting. (manual switch must be on second/backup bios)

It's not so much as there is a "main" and "backup" bios, as that there are two separate bios and the board may try to use the whichever bios the switch is not set for in case of corruption of the current bios.
The position the switch is in makes no difference other than to select whichever bios you prefer to use.

Hope that makes sense, still on first cuppa coffee. wink.gif

Hey guys, quick question. I had a z77x ud3h board and I have been experiencing boot loops from a cold start and also waking the computer up from sleep. I've flashed to the latest bios from the gigabyte website but it still seems to suffer the same problem. My specs are bellow and any help would be fantastic

yeah it makes sense - i was just wondering - because in my case - my computer will be under my desk once i get it up and running - i wont be able to easily open it up to do anything once its in place

i just want to use it - so if it would do it automactilly if in the event i play around with OC and it fails - i am not looking to open the case and do anything - i am hoping it will fix itself - and boot from the good bios -

i will leave them as they are - and just save a profile of what ever OC i end up with - if it does reset to stock defaults - i can just go back in and pick the profile which worked or start over i guess -

by default - it would be switched to the Main bios ? for example - if i wanted to update the bios to latest version at some point - how would it know which one it is updating - ? i would have to make sure the switch is on Main before updating ?

and then just leave the backup bios alone - is that correct - i am trying to understand better before i get this board and put it together -

i know this has be answered before - and i cant seem to find it now - i read somewhere here - if i just wanted a safe simple easy OC of 4.2 - do i need to adjust volts etc, manually or just leave everything on Auto - and just change to 42 -

i seen the video doing it to 4.5 etc. but if i can run it at 4.2 with no increase in volts etc, - to keep heat down and temps - that my be a good start for me - i really dont care to run benchmarks etc, just a little bump is fine for me - its going to be 24/7 everyday computer - my concern is my Room is very hot - i say about 80 to 85 F - -

summer is better because i use the AC - unless 4.5 gives me good temps idle and load etc, - i wont mind

thanks -

I never did anything and just installed Win 7 64 and it did all the drivers etc, - i had a ton of windows update - but in the end - it was ACHI in the bios - and in windows etc, i didnt pick anything other than just put the disk in and let it install as always

i am new to SSD also - and i am not going to stress myself with all the little adjustments or watch about reading and writing to it - i will use it as i always use my computer and when its done - hopefully over 5 years - most likely do a new computer by then anyway -


i mean i watch out about doing anything if i can - but not going to feel scared to use it because its going to wear out or something - its fast enough - not to notice any difference anyway - at least i hope

i guess i will find out - besides not to defrag it - i really dont know what else i can do - i have the OCZ vertex 4 - i figure its advanced enough to take care of itself - smile.gif

Boot loops on these boards usually only happen with unstable OCs. I see your CPU is overclocked, so try to see if the same thing happens on stock.
