Also, do I need to download all the drivers listed? Do I need Intel Management Interface, INF Installation, SATA preinstalled driver, or the VGA driver? I don't think I'll need Intel RST or SRT b/c I want my SSD to be fast and not cache the HDD.

latest is here

and you only need this
audio
lan
intel usb
via usb
intel inf chipset
intel mei
intel iata (ahci raid)

if you use intel igpu, then those drivers


long time without posting because i had almost 3 months far from my pc

so far my ud3h has been nice

but.............again those usb devils

those next to the ps2 port, sometimes work, but not always, it can´t even give power to my x360 pad (the pad is fine, it is the usb port damaged or something)

I find @Bios easier to update and backup my bios because I can do the whole operation while in windows. Give it a try, you won't have to do the update again, but you could install @Bios and take a look at the options it presents to you. You can update from a file on the Gigabyte server, update from a file on your hard drive/SSD, back up your bios incase you have a problem.

I used to use Qflash and others back in the day, but as always, one should use the procedure they feel most comfortable with. Congrats on a successful upgrade and I will look into the F18 bios when my mobo arrives tomorrow. Are you going to use the Virtu capabilities of your motherboard ?

If Windows freezes, or BSODs while @Bios flashing... well you don't want that to happen. At least these boards have dual-BIOS, but still.

I disabled iGPU b/c I don't need virtu.

Yes there is always the possibility of a hitch in the OS. Lets face it..the old adage that bios flashing should not be done by the faint of heart..is alive and well. I personally don't flash from a web server now a days, had an ISP glitch once and had to reflash from my just saved bios file. All went well, downloaded from Gigabyte site and did it that way. I did have an old trusty bios flash proggy on my flash drive that could have been used just in case, but didn't have to use it. My ole granpa told me once..you should always keep a spare around son..you can trust me on that one, get you out of a bind someday it will.

Had something very similar happen yesterday. USB boot option seemed to permanently disappear after (probably wrongly) modifying boot option, boot order, boot mode, or some mismatched combination of them, after I had moved the installed system drive SATA cable from SATA port 1 to SATA port 0. I could not recover the USB boot option no matter what I tried, including restoring default mobo settings. Fix was to clear the CMOS. I don't know whether it was necessary but I used the "surefire" method, i.e, unplug power cord, take out battery from mobo battery port, short connectors inside mobo battery port while holding down the clear CMOS button located in the corner of the UD5H mobo]. I did unsuccessfully try all the USB ports that previously were able to boot from that USB Windows installer disk, however, I suspect now I didn't try the rear red USB2 ports, so maybe they would have worked before the CMOS clear. I have no idea. Anyway, CMOS clear, followed by restoring default mobo settings, fixed the mysterious disappearance of the USB boot option in my case. If someday I manage to master the mysterious UD5H fan controls I'll be even happier.

Choosing Windows MBR on that menu does work though. SATA mode is set to AHCI in the bios like I believe it should be.
I don't even know what a UEFI partition is, but I guess I better start looking into it. What I don't understand is everything was working just great until I plugged a new HDD into port 1, I didn't change anything about the SSD.
I found someone with a problem similar to mine, he managed to fix it, I'll have to see if I can repeat his method. He repaired the Windows installation with a Windows installation disc. http://forum.overclock3d.net/showthread.php?t=38841
I just checked things out with Gparted, I didn't really know what to look for but things seemed fine. Then I tried setting BIOS first boot device to "Windows Boot Manager" which did not work before, it worked!

If you are talking about ebombsor's statement then he was updating a D3H.

yes thanks -

i have a question maybe someone can give me some info on the UD5H board -

i want to add new fans to my antec 920 cooler -

i found a nice fan - coolermaster Xtraflo model - high static pressure rating and its 4 pin for PWM control -

the amps it draws are 0.45 - max 0.7

power watts is - 5.4 watts - max 8.4 watts


i would be adding two fans in push pull and both would be connected to the cooler and then in the CPU header -


would the board - CPU header handle the amp and power of both fans ?

still cheaper than getting all pwm fans. I still think the best way to go is get a fan controller with pwm functionality (as well as voltage) as then this device could follow along from build to build.

I like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811995075
Actually, that Sunbeam fan controller you linked to has NO PWM capability. In fact I haven't seen a single fan controller on the market that truly supports PWM speed control, which is a bizarre omission.
