yea i am with you i hoped for it too, but its okay, it mean it is a pretty cheap board for what it is, I am just glad they left on the OC features unlike the UP4.

Yea i have a much more strict definition of true haha.
Honestly when I first saw the board I thought it was true, until I counted the PWMs on the board and I was like, they can't do that with only 2 PWMs if it was IR3563A, then i took a closer look(b/c the PWm is freaking small, and its a single number difference) and found it was 4+1, i was kind of relived actually because it made sense, i hate when things don't make sense. lol I had never seen a IR3564A, but hey it is nice to see it being used. So far GB has basically used almost all of IRs PWMs, IR3563, IR3570, IR3564, IR3567.

I don't know how you update your bios but I use @Bios. Don't forget to backup your bios using @Bios or your fav method, then you should be OK. Good luck & happy update.
How do I restore the BIOS if it gets corrupted? What's the purpose of manually backing up BIOS?
Is @BIOS better than Q-flash?

Ok I finally got my UD5H board in last night - and up and running - its a very nice looking board - and it worked with no problems -

i had one strange issue with the USB 3.0 when trying to use my printer usb - which is 2.0 - it shut down - then my thumb drives which always worked before - didnt work anymore - i though i killed the port - etc,

as anyone had this happen to them before ? was scary - turned out to be fine - what i believe it was - Windows 8 !!! -

installed Win 8 32 bit - by mistake - i though it was 64 - either way - my printer didnt work - no software for Win 8 - so it gave me problems - and i guess Win 8 is just not ready for this board -

my board is version 1.1 and bios F14 -

since i lost my printer functions - limited to what would work with the 3.0 ports - and put in 32 bit - instead of 64

i just started over - Win 7 64 this time - and everything is back to the way it was - - printer software working - all my thumb drives work in all the 3.0 ports - etc, - front and back -

i dont know if its the board and win 8 not working together or just Win 8 - either way - it was scary - finally got it all together and then it just shut down when plug in the rear 3.0 port with my printer cable - i lost all power etc, -

my board shows Code A0 - so its fine -

just wanted to share this - in case anyone had this happen or is considering Win 8 - the short time i had win 8 - it boots very fast - etc,

but not trilled about it - have to relearn alot of basic stuff - - - maybe in a year or more when its stable with drivers - software etc, - i try 64 bit -

Win 7 still boots fast with my SSD - maybe 5 or so more secs - compared to Win 8 - thats fine with me - as long as it works smile.gif

When I update the BIOS using Q-Flash, do I put all 3 files on the USB (autoexec.bat / Z77D3H.F18 / Efiflash.exe) or just Z77D3H.F18?

I've been using Windows 8 64-bit (CP, RP, final) on my UD5H for some time now and the main issues I have seen are problems with SOME devices on the USB 3.0 VIA ports (no issues for me on the USB 3,0 Intel port, no issues with the USB 2.0 ports).
I am now using BIOS F15p and was having some problems with sudden and unexpected system reboots for no apparent reason until I cleared CMOS.
Oh, and I am also still using MBR. Playing around with a UEFI install of Windows 8, I have not seen any significant difference for me, so I am in no hurry to abandon MBR. I'll probably use UEFI for my next clean install though.

i see - i am not going back to win 8 - i am fine with my 7 64 - no problems - the usb port which it happened on was the top 3.0 right under the NIC - not sure which that one is -

i just went to plug in my printer cable and it went off - like it was shocked or shorted - all power went down - i have to shut off PSU - wait and then it came back on - when i checked all the ports with a thumb drive which worked before - the thumb drive no longer worked with all the 3.0 ports front of rear -

but if i plugged in my external WD drive 2.0 - it worked so i know the ports were working - something was not right - and it was scary - i did not want to take it apart again and send the board back -

when i went back to win 7 - everything is fine now - and those thumb drives which didnt work are working again - i have bios F14 - and am not upgrading unless i run into problems for some reason - hopefully the new bios would be a official stable release by then
