Oh cool, didn't think of that solution, but probably easier than taping on cellophane, haha! Thanks!

Hey guys,

I just upgraded to a Sniper G1. Sniper 3 board and for my RAM seems to be stuck at 1333MHz. I've enabled XMP and nothing has changed. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Edit: I was able to get my RAM to run at 2400MHz after I reflashed the bios. Weird.

Edit2: For some reason my GPU's are detected as running at x16 x16 PCIE 2.0 mode. Does anyone know why this is? This board has a PLX chip.

I've noticed that if I boot via UEFI I can't boot into Windows 8. But if I boot via p0 option, it works fine. This normal behavior for my board?

Did you install Windows 8 in the UEFI mode? UEFI works fine on these boards.

Yes installed windows 8 under UEFI. Ill have to investigate further
Also, is there much difference between the 2 modes besides boot time?

With MBR, the boot loader is hidden at the start of the drive, outside of the partitions. There's a limit of four "primary" partitions. There's some sort of 2TB size limit.

With UEFI, the partitioning scheme is called "GPT". The UEFI BIOS searches for a FAT32 formatted partition at boot. That's where it gets the boot loaders. The error you see probably means that the partition simply isn't there and it can't find the boot loader.

When installing Windows 8, if it finds empty room on the drive, it will create a whole bunch of strange partitions on an UEFI machine. It's perhaps important to delete all partitions on the drive so that the installation program works right.

Here's a screenshot of my first drive:



There's actually another hidden partition called "MSR" that Disk Management isn't showing.

Compare that with your drive. MBR can have one single partition on the drive and nothing else.

To convert a drive between MBR and GPT, there's an option in the right-click menu for the drive (on the left side where it says "Disk 0"). That option is grayed out until you delete all partitions on the drive.

Hello all smile.gif

I purchased a Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H with Intel i5 3570k processor and the problem is that my graphics card ( Sapphire 7950 ) only works with gen 2. With gen 3 is only black screen. So it works only in pci-e 2.0 x16 and not 3.0 x16
I tried all BIOSes for the motherboard but it doesnt work.

Please help me.
post #6308 of 6656
Weird, it should work in a PCI-Express 3 slot, they are backwards compatible.

I have 2 7970s and my bios is set up for Gen3, no issues on bios versions F16 through F20. Might be a bad setting or your motherboard or PCI slot are bad. Do you have the bios settings for the GPU (forgot what they are off the top of my head) set up for the PCIE slots and not the onboard GPU? There's a setting that should be auto or set up for PEG1 (for 1st slot, PEG2 for 2nd slot). You might want to try those.

EDIT: Also, what connection are you using? When I have a DP monitor plugged in, only that one will turn on and the DVI and HDMI ports won't display anything, and the on-board ports are blank as well in that case. If you can try different ports on the card if you have the cables/adapters to do so.

The card works if I put it to the x8 slot. So 3.0 x8 works but if I put it to the x16 slot it works only with gen 2 so 2.0 x16

I have tried all settings but no luck and I use DVI cable.

I saw in the forums that lots of people have the same problem.

http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-1714412/problem-gigabyte-z87x-ud3h-pci-slot.html

Here is one.

The solution should be:

Gigabyte
Hit DEL key to enter BIOS. Under BIOS Features, go to PCI ROM Priority, change from 'EFI compatible' to Legacy. Also under Init Display First make sure this is set for PCIe Slot1, save and then exit.

But I ask myself why works all fine with 2500K and it is also PCI ROM Priority set to EFI compatible not Legacy.

I have 2500K installed now and the card works normal in x16 slot but 2.0 pcie because of the cpu.

2500k has no PCI-E 3.0, so that's why it then automatically can only try 2.0 x16. So whatever the bug is, it then avoids it because of that. That would be my explanation why there's only a problem with the 3570k.

That UEFI talk, if you don't know what that's about, that's a new style of BIOS. It wants a different style of BIOS modules from the expansion cards. The one for the graphics card is called UEFI GOP. There might be a graphics card vBIOS update that introduces that for your 7950.

The UEFI BIOS can also use the old style BIOS with the expansion cards. It does that through that "Legacy" mode it has.

What happens if you make sure that Legacy will be tried first for the graphics card? Does 3.0 x16 work like that or do you again have to manually force 2.0?

You could perhaps try to flash an UEFI GOP update for your graphics card, but I'm skeptical about that idea. I bet it does not work. Also, if the card does not work with UEFI GOP, it'll be a headache trying to flash the old BIOS back onto it (works through using the integrated graphics to get to the Windows desktop).

I'd contact Gigabyte technical support and explain the problem. If they forward the problem to the actual BIOS programmers and stuff, they might have a solution and give you a changed beta where it works.
