anyone have super weird cpu-z readings? I just got this board and started offset overclocking, on my previous z77-mpower I was stable 4.5ghz at 75-80c (1.28v), I might of overvolted this chip a little on this board because my cpu-z readings were sitting at 1.08 (DVID set up to .3) so I set the DVID at .1 something and checked the core temp reading and it said 1.209v at 80c... So i'm a little freaked out about my chip and wondering why my voltage is so off (thermal paste and heatsink are fine)

Whats the bios like on the gigabyte z77 ? I have a gigabye z68 and the non-UFI?? bios is super basic. You can't enter numbers for voltages, only single scroll up/down through the list, very slow.

Also there was no saving of profiles, just the save and quit.

But I'd consider them again for a z87 for an i5-4670k over the summer

what is a safe temp for the Z77x-ud3h vrm? what is max safe 24/7 vrm temp that won't shorten the life of the board considerably?

how about the pch temp?

I like it a lot more than the asrock, biostar, or msi bios' i've used. You can enter in numbers. Most mice don't seem to work for me very well though in the bios (mice that work in other motherboard bios'). I could care less about how a bios look though, they are all pretty straightforward and easy to figure out... and I always prefer the 2d bios instead of the fancy 3d one.

MSI is said to have the 'best' bios but personally I didn't like it as much as the gigabyte bios. It's such a non-issue to me though, i dont care about this high end z77 bios or the msi bios i had on some pentium 4 10 year old computer that i dont even know what the chipset is to or my biostar am3 board.

around 120-140*C. Max 24/7 is somewhere around there as well, maybe 100*C at the lowest. I never got anywhere close to even 70*C even with some rather extreme voltages, what are you doing that you are worrying about VRM temps?

Not sure on exact PCH temp, you can google this all very easily, but max is like 90*C+ and PCH tends to run 'hot' all the time, so the 50-60*C you see for your PCH temp all the time is more than okay and is expected.

CPU-Z is a terrible way to monitor voltage, it just gives a quick snapshot. Use hwinfo instead. 1.2v is stock voltage for some chips (as stock voltage varies chip to chip). You have voltage read-outs, you can always whip out the DMM. cpu-z is always way off anyways, probably more so on your mpower than your gigabyte board.

Hi folks,

Just ordered myself a GA-Z77X-UD5H... Which BIOS version should I use? The one that comes with it? Or another one from the web (links please) smile.gif Cheers!

The latest beta BIOS on Gigabyte's website is F15q. The latest full release is F14. If your board comes with anything pre-F14, you might want to consider updating to at least that release.

would you recomend the F15q over the F14?

I don't use that model, so I couldn't say for certain. Hopefully an UD5H owner will pipe in with his/her experiences.

The latest beta bios for Gigabyte boards are always posted by Stasio over at the TweakTown Gigabyte forum. He also posts the latest drivers, monitoring, and overclocking programs making it truly a one stop shop for anything Gigabyte related. thumb.gif
http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte/

The latest for the UD5H is F15r and I would recommend it over the F15q. If you are going to overclock, especially RAM, I would go with F15r for sure. If you just want the latest official stable release run F14.

So is 1.2v about normal for 4.5ghz on these boards?
