It booted into Windows, but Windows wouldn't show the array no matter what I did. It appeared in the utilities. The utilities found it just fine, but Windows and Computer would not.

Maybe I'm due for a reformat... I have been running this installation for a while, and I'd love to clean up some of these installations of applications that Windows 8 won't let uninstall (horribly annoying bug, btw)
You know what you do, contact NoG for a RAID card thumb.gif

A raid card? rather than the onboard motherboard variety? you have those lying about? tongue.gif

@DaClownie
Are the Marvell utilities/drivers required for RAID on the Marvell ports?
I've never run RAID on those ports, just on the Intel ports. Never loaded any Marvell drivers, although I do have those ports populated.
As far as non-RAID use mine work fine as long as I leave them at the end of the BBS priority.

I'm not sure that it's required, but when I got into windows and noticed the array I had built in the Marvell utility was not showing in Computer, I figured I'd install their utility. The utility found the array, but it wouldn't show in Windows still. I think I'm just going to go the reformat route. Like I stated before, Windows 8 is becoming a bit cluttered due to the applications that are not uninstalling due to compatibility. Time to clean up.

Reformatted. I now have a Raid 0 array in Windows. That solution was much easier than all the ridiculous battling I've done over the last few days. biggrin.gif

Hey guys, I'm thinking about getting another 7970 but I have a bit of a conundrum and was hoping for some help.

I have a reference Sapphire 7970 and replaced the cooler with an Accelero Xtreme aftermarket cooler. This effectively makes my card a 3 slot monster with insane cooling/noise level barring water cooling. My problem is that if I added another card to the second PCIE3.0 slot it would sit flush against my old card and it would be sucking up all that heat and recycling it and making it, obviously, hotter than it should be.

My question is, for anyone who can answer, if I drop my old 7970 like so will it block off the bottom row of connectors?



I'd like to think have that extra slot between cards would allow for better temperatures rather than ramming them right next to each other. Especially since neither would be reference cards. Obviously I can check a bit more thoroughly when I get home but was hoping someone else might have some prior experience or expertise to share on the matter thumb.gif.

I don't think it would completely block the connectors, just make them harder to get too. I'd pug in the connectors first, then drop in the 2nd graphics card. Purely speculation on my part.

Got a Z77-UD5H under phase 24/7..



Absolutely rock solid when running under the cold, had zero issues with it.

During my lunch break I dropped the GPU to the second slot and the connectors were fine. The Accelero Xtreme fan has a gap between the heatsink/fans and the motherboard, thank goodness biggrin.gif. Now I just need to decide which 7970 to get.

hi guys, some help please

z77x ud3h here, f18

so i wanted to format my pc with win 8 and put in with gpt partition, in order to put gpt you need to boot the dvd uefi

but i have no uefi options at all for boot

everything is default, but oc stuff

maybe f18 has a bug or changed menus, added features, but i remember in older bios i always had uefi boot options for every one of my units

also i feel my boot is too slow, i know raid 0 add a little time, but still mobo takes too much from start to load windows, like 8 sec, 10 secs, very annoying

my asus laptop with ssd takes much less time to boot, with a crap pentium b980 vs my 3570k

The PWM control for systems fans in the BIOS, does it only work with PWM fans or will it control 3pin fans as well?

I plugged a 4pin PWM fan into the System Fan 2 header and set PWm slope to 0.75/ C and it spins steadily at 914RPM. It spins at the same speed when I set it to 2.5/ C.

Which temperature does it operate off of, CPU temp?

Hey guys, so I'm having a small issue and have run out of troubleshooting ideas. I'm running a Z77x-UD5h with an i5-3570k, and I've been getting periodic BSOD's at unpredictable intervals, and have been unable to get them to repeat based on either load conditions or the programs running. Currently I'm running a fresh install of Windows 7 X64 Professional using the latest drivers from Gigabytes website, running with the XMP profile and optimized defaults in the BIOS for every other setting.

GA-Z77x-UD5H
i5-3570k
Seasonic 860w Platinum PSU
EVGA GTX 480
Corsair Neutron GTX 240gb (boot)
WD Caviar Black 1TB (Data)
Corsair CML8GX3M2A1600C9 Ram

I've been getting Stop Codes 1a and C2 which both imply a memory related issue, but I've run Memtest from Hiren's boot CD on each dimm in all four sockets for 7 passes with no errors. This has been happening since I built the system about 9 months ago, and the only hardware change has been moving from a mechanical HDD to an SSD. So I'm wondering if this may be a voltage regulation issue with my motherboard, or an issue with the CPU memory controller. I've already gotten the okay from Intel to RMA the CPU, but I'd hate to do that unless I know with reasonable certainty that that's the source of the problem.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or help.
