I will. And if I run into any trouble this thread is the first place I'll run to.

Thanks for all the help guys! this thread really is great! handed over the amazing build to my dad and he is photoshopping and editing in lightroom at a million miles an hour now. RAID 0 Samsung 830's with a 2600k at 4.5 will do that to u i guess smile.gif. thanks for all the help everyone!

I have already said like 10 times. I get random freezes with UD5H + 2500k that don't occur while stress testing. It will pass 20 runs of IBT and Prime at 4.5ghz, then just random out of nowhere, the system will freeze once or twice a day. I set the system to stock speed and load BIOS defaults and it still happens. That's all there is to say about BIOS settings.

Like I previously mentioned, the system normally runs with a DPC latency of 4:

499

Then out of nowhere, once an hour or something, I get some 2400DPC spike as outlined in the post below, so there are clearly some problems with 2500k and this board right now. I never had any DPC spikes on my Asus i5-760 build, and all of the components from it were used on this except CPU + motherboard.

BTW IBT isn't as strong as Prime95 is for SB/IB You can IBT for 50 loops and then try prime95 and get done within the first 10minutes.

Now don't set anything after you load optimized defaults, run everything at stock, even memory and test again. If you still have issues and your PSU isn't messed up, then RMA the board.

I'm not going to say it's "impossible" for there to be a PSU issue, but it's highly unlikely when I transplanted this PSU from an i5-760 build that worked flawlessly gaming for hours 1 day before putting it in this UD5H. The freeze also occurs at random, sometimes at load, sometimes while just browsing the web. It doesn't occur while doing 20 runs of IBT so it seems even less likely to be a PSU issue.

@R0ach

Not sure if this has been suggested already or if you have already tried it but have you tried pulling the soundcard out.? As you point out there is little chance that it's at fault but it occured to me that there might be an issue with the way it's interacting with the motherboard over PCI..!?
Your problem does sound very much like an issue that I had with my P67A-B3 board when I first built it up.. Unfortunately I can't for the life of me remember what the cause was in the end but it was something daft like a soundcard or having to disable one of the motherboard features to stop them interfering with each other across the PCI bus.. I know we all forget about interrupts and whatnot these days but they can still cause the odd issue..

As I said just a suggestion, hopefully I'm not repeating advice already tried or given...

Yes, with Qflash. very quick and easy. Just load the BIOS onto a usb stick, reboot and hit "end" and it will bring up the Qflash setup where you can select the BIOS you want to load.

Just wanted to thank Sin for his great review of the UD5H, your review was no small part in my buying this board. For me it's working really well right now with the F6L beta bios & 2600k. I have a 3770k and an H100 on the way. So anyway the Zalman liquid cooler that you have/had did not work well for me but I won't hold that against you. wink.gif This 2600k always wanted lots of voltage and always ran hot.
Already spent too much to go custom cooling so I'm hoping the H100 will help keep the IB Monster under control.

Other thing is I wanted to point out to those that don't know that the Gigabyte Tweaktown forum is a great place to pick up the latest beta BIOS's, up to date drivers, etc as Stasio does an excellent job of staying almost up-to-the-hour on updates including Gigabyte only utilities, Intel drivers, stress testing programs, monitoring utils, etc.

i picked up a GA-Z77X-UD5H when they was giving away antec kuhler h2o 620 with it for free last week and so far so good

with my 2500k i am at 4.7ghz (1.4v in bios 1.36v in cpuz underload) temps in the 60's i can get it stable at 4.8ghz at 1.450 just seems abit high tho maybe have to check the other power options maybe?

nice motherboard this far better then my Z68A-G43 which could only do 4.4ghz and would make a terrible whining sound when c-sate was enabled

Think i will go for the GA-Z77X-D3H , my first choice was Asrock Z77 extreme4 , but its a brand ive never used before ( msi / gigabyte / asus used before )

bit of a hard choice , both are good motherboards
post #460 of 6656
Have had no freezes so far with F6L BIOS and 2500k+UD5h, not sure if I'm just lucky so far though. Also, am I hallucinating or did the option to enable XMP ram profiles disappear in the BIOS.
