And also, from the bios list, how can you tell which ones are final release and which ones are beta bios? thanks again.

There is no need to load intermediate versions of the BIOS - Just load the one you need.
Usually the beta versions of BIOS have a final letter suffix (e.g. F8a), whereas a final released version has no such suffix (e.g. F8)
Having said that, the "configuration control" isn't always perfect. Sometimes "final" versions get leaked and withdrawn later if a problem is found with them. It's not even unknown for a "final" version to get replaced with another (slightly different) "final" version with the same number a while later (e.g. Z77X-UD5H version F6). I design electronics for aircraft myself - I'd get in big trouble for doing that kinda thing biggrin.gif

A question I had what plugs into HW_PWR? I was just looking at the manual and says it is for chipset LED?

I never plugged anything into it, but not sure exactly what I am missing and where to plug it in from? It looks like it is 2 pins? I don't recall having that on my last mobo.

Thanks

Looking at my manual, if you mean HP_PWR I think it's for people who have LED lights on their CPU heatsink fan.

I'm fairly sure that it was intended to power LEDs on the heatsink which Gigabyte later decided not to fit to this motherboard model.
It could be used to power anything that needs 12 volts DC at fairly low power, for example some case lightning.

IMO flash directly to the latest beta BIOS for your board, goto tweaktown forums, download the BIOS ROM file. Format a flash drive in FAT32, and load just hte BIOS file onto the flash drive. Go into the advanced mode in the BIOS and press F8, QFLASH will come up and select the BIOS and follow the instructions.

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: after you flash hit "reboot", then go back into advanced mode in the BIOS and goto the last page, and select "load optimized defaults", then save and exit, and go back into the BIOS and set whatever you want.

I have no idea why they left it on there, if you are a modder, you can prob use it for your own LEDs.

reposting this because it was skipped:
Sin0822 I have a few questions
How will a GA-Z68X-UD7-B3 do with memory Overclocking with a 3770K I see better memory yields people are getting do you need a z77 board for this ?
Gigabyte's site for GA-Z68X-UD7-B3 says under "Overview" it has a nice looking logo with PCIE 3. Yet under "Specifications" there is no 3.0 mentioned, so what is the truth ?
Also if I have z68 paired with a 3770K rather than z77 what am I missing out on ?

I currently have 2133 ram that I can't stabilize at high CPU clocks with my 2700K. I also have two water cooled 7970's I might plan to do 7990 and 7970 in the future.

Hey Sin0822,
You heard any update about including a BIOS switch for the PLL OV enable/disable, have you? Hope GB don't forget that for us Sandy Bridge users!
