""We have seen that the CPU power saving features in the BIOS can cause the PSU to emit the noise. Try disabling these features to see if there is any improvement. C1E and EIST (Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology) are two examples of power saving settings, but your motherboard manufacturer should be able to tell you specifically which features your board supports.

We have also seen that some graphics card drivers can contribute to the sound as well. If the problems seem to get worse when loading a 3D application, try booting your system up into safe mode to see if you can still hear the sound. If the sound goes away, then your problem may be software related. We have found that enabling “vsync” in your graphics drivers options can eliminate the sound."""

What's up guys! Just got done with my first build and I have an ASUS Sabertooth Z77.

Any guides as to how I should setup my BIOS and then after I install windows, any updates?


This is what it looks like so far:

I'd give a go on Blatsz32's advice, use an alternate method for updating your bios.
BTW, why did you update in the first place? I mean were there any problems with the version you had?
@Defected87 I do get some coil whine while games are loading, but not under load when the game actually starts.
Are you positive it's coming from the card and not the assist fans?
The assist fans make a terrible squeaky noise when on high rpm.
Have you maybe set a profile for them to increase speed when temps arise?

I dont have the fans so it cannot be that. Is there a speaker installed on the motherboard which is making the noise? I wouldn't have thought so as there's a series of LED's in leiu of the traditional "beeps".

Hi,
Thanks for the advice but it hasn't solved the problem. It is coming from the PCI-E area but not the graphics cards. Is there the possibility of any VRMs which power the PCIE slot that are blown?

I made a seperate thread so if anyone wants to read further into the matter please do so here;

Hey guys, I just completed my build a few days ago and am having some overclocking issues. I can run at 4.2 no problem, and temps are excellent. It's when I try to get to 4.4 or 4.5 that I have issues. I can't seem to get it stable no matter what voltage I run to it, I can get it to run prime, even ran it 8 hrs without a crash at one point, shut down prime and launched a game, crashed 3 times within an hour. Now when I say crash I mean the software crashes, the game shuts off like a light and dumps me at the desktop idling, no warning, no lag, no error messages, nothing, just idling at desktop. I have had it at 4.4 with 1.35v, and it runs prime fine, also runs prime fine with 4.4 @ 1.275, but games will still fail. So it doesn't seem voltage related to me. Any insight or advice would be greatly appreciated. Let me give you some basic info to start things off, I have been running these settings; PLL overvoltage enabled, Asus multi core enhancement disabled, spread spectrum disabled, have tried multiple turbo ratio(always synchronized), using an offset voltage along with various LLC settings, manually set ddr timings, manually set memory frequency. I believe that is all I have messed with.

You may be interested to look at GURU3D, Ithar87:

Overclocking with Ivy Bridge processors

It may be talking about the Sabertooth Z77 and i7 3770K but you are being pointed in the right direction. hope this helps.


As for you apolloroad, check for those needed asus updates here below - just type in Sabertooth Z77.
For Sabertooth Z77 updates

Good luck - I see you are living in a blue world.

Just got my Sabertooth a couple of weeks ago and upgraded to a 3570K yesterday!
Just wanted to say hello after having a quick read of this thread and also ask a couple of minor questions smile.gif
1. What sort of idle temps are people getting on thermal radar points? because a couple of mine seem to me to be a little high, especially the USB 3.0 which right now is sitting at 49C
2. has anyone done any testing on mounting the Assist fans in different directions? for instance I'm wondering if having the face fan blowing air in under the thermal armor means I should have the I/O fan sucking air out instead of also blowing air in.
I have configured all my fans to run at speeds that are aurally comfortable but by no means silent, however they seem to be generally lower than the standard settings except on my case intake fans which are basically silent anyway.
Edit: I only found out today why they give us a second, spare I/O Assist fan mount cover. I don't really understand why if a 40mm fan will fit there they only supply a 35mm. I guess its easier to have both fans the same size?
Does anyone have any leads on where to get a good quality 40mm fan? I would assume that being slightly bigger it could move more air with less noise. I did find several on ebay that would work but most of them were very low powered and slow speed and the one high speed model I could find was very expensive.
Thanks y'all

Here's a pic om my temps - my system has been on today for a good 12 hours and actually it's today that I installed AI Suite II. Been keeping an eye on the temps since I manually adjusted my front and top 200mm fans - my temps are these. They've been stable for 5-6 hours.
372

I've also been looking into getting the 40mm fan that way I'll have a spare when I need it.

The strange thing is when I do speedtest (speedtest.net) its quite fast (100mbps down/80mbps up). but when I actually put it to use with softwares that require fast internet connections, the speed never exceeds 2mbps download (this is after testing it on multiple softwares...etc including something as simple as watching youtube video on my browser -- very very slow speed). I have another older computer connected the same way and no issues with internet speed whatsoever. I have updated the Lan driver already and still no help. I thot there maybe something wrong with the Lan card built into this motherboard, so I went out to get a new Lan card, still the same issue. I have now spent about a week on this and still no improvement.
Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I've read people here complain about the Network iControl software that comes with the AI Suite II - blaming it for such issues - I personally will not mess with my connection by using it. Even before I read the bad reviews about it I was never really considering installing the Network iControl software.

It must be that you are overvolting.

Try out these settings
Asus multi core enhancement: enabled
Turbo ratio: manual
Multi:45
Vcore: Offset -0.005 to +0.010
vPLL: 1.675 to 1.725
LLC: High
Cpu current capability : 140%
Speedstep, C1E : enabled

What does Network iControl do?  By the way, I noticed that ASUS came out with an update on 6/21/12. 

 

Also, can you install AI Sute II WITHOUT installing Network iControl?

You can do a custom and install just only the modules you want...you don't have to install everything

I tried your recommended settings and got instant bsod upon starting prime. Increased offset to .030 and it ran prime(didn't have much time to test), then launched Arkham City benchmark test and got instant freeze like I was before. Voltage seems to have no impact, high or low.
