yea stasio always has the latest and greatest! smile.gif

BTW Yesterday I was messing with the Z77-HD4, and it even has the slew rates. I have this PSC kit, not the best, its 2133cas9T2 by default, i have never gotten it over 2400mhz, well i tried slew 5 on the HD4 and first boot at 2600C8T1 i was like damn, that is pretty awesome.

Sin0822: So how exactly is the GA-Z77-HD4 in terms of quality? It looks like a decent candidate for a budget i3 or non-K i5 build, but would it be able to O/C the +4 multipliers that non-K i5 chips are partially unlocked at?

To the untrained eye (i.e. mine) it looks to be an evolution of the GA-Z77-D3SH, but with the addition of a heatsink for the VRMs north of the CPU, removal of the (largely useless) mSATA slot and replacement of the Atheros LAN hardware with a more common Realtek solution. Is that about it?

Also, is there any real difference between the -HD4 and the -HD3 except for the latter model lacking DisplayPort and S/PDIF outputs?

@Sin0822 Slew rate? Is this common amongst all motherboards?

IDk about HD3 to HD4, but I do know that you can overclock and change vcore and you get all the digital PWM stuff for the vcore only.

Z77 DS3H or whatever couldn't even change the vcore, this board can change vcore and it has much better memory topology. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative to the Z77X-D3H, then this would be a pretty good option. I bet it could run a 4.5ghz OC without issue. I will do more investigating into the CPU OC, as the board only has 4 phases for the vcore, but I am sure it is more than enough. GIGABYTE tends to always side with caution with boards that have VRMs not conducive to overclocking. aka. they don't want to get a bunch of RMAs with blown FETs from boards which they don't think can handle it, so they tend not to provide vcore control on boards which haven't proved themselves worthy. I was kind of surprised when they sent me this HD4, I honestly didn't think it had vcore control, but I was surprised. HD4 might be their cheapest board with vcore control.

slew rate was added into the latest betas across almost all GIGABYTE Z77 boards, it will greatly help if you are trying to overclock PSC or Samsung based memory, any setting other than 1 is best for those two types of memory, however before the boards only would set that value to 1(well its a made up setting of some other settings, but 1 is default) so you need to change it.

Hi, I'm in real need for help,
I have also posted this here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1357138/z77x-ud5h-voltage-problems



I have the Wifi version of this board with a Core i7 3770k installed cooled with a Thermaltake frio.
The problem I have is that, even though I set the vcore manually at 1.180 to achieve a 4.1 oc (I'm just warming up) the board sets it to 1.250 after I boot and enter windows. And of course, there's no way to cool down the CPU once I start linx or Prime for a long period.

Why the hell is it doing that? Where is the setting to use MY voltage and not whatever the mobo desires.
Also, if I set the offset to do 0.020 more, instead of rising the vcore to 1.18 (from 1.160) it also sets it to 1.250.
Load line calibration does nothing but raise it more (in any settings)

I have revision 1.1 with F14 bios.
EDIT: Furthermore, I have been playing with the bios and there is no way to set a custom voltage. No matter what I set as VCORE the board boots a 1.250 when I overclock the cpu. What the hell is this?
I have turbo enabled at 41x and the default clock of the cpu at 35x no messing with the BCKL

So.. with deffault all, the motherboard sets the voltage at 1.160 when turbo kicks in
If I set the voltage or offset manually to any value (have never gone past 1.250), the board sets it at 1.250/1.280 under full load, no matter what I set for LLC in any of the LLC settings of the motherboard !! What is wrong with this thing?

Any clues or help? Thank you.

BTW do you have a digital multimeter? you can manually read vcore if you have one.
