A quick round of testing the iGPU feature..and my personal findings..


1. In the OSD of my HP 2711x monitor set the source to auto switching to detect either DVI or HDMI. This is also default setting.

2. Powered down the machine

3. Cleared the CMOS

4. Leaving my Discrete card in PCIe slot 1 and removed the dvi cable from card and monitor.

5. Connected a known to work HDMI cable to monitor and HDMI out on back of board I/O.

6. Power on system and have NO Display signal to monitor..HMMMM

7. Power down again.

8. REMOVED Discrete Card from PCIe slot 1 and Cleared CMOS Again.

9. With HDMI still hooked to back of Motherboard I/O and Inputted to Monitor Turned on system again.

10. Now have Signal and am typing this currently on HDMI out of I/O and Input to Monitor.

So from this test you can see that iGPU will not work with a discrete card in slot 1 and only HDMI hooked up..

Once card removed from slot 1, I have signal now and bios 1504 has been set to default by clearing the cmos. This test is of course on a properly functioning board and does not pertain to others who have had no success with iGPU.. An Added note my monitor by default is auto detect source input..

For those of you with no discrete card and still not receiving a signal with HDMI, Look into your Monitor settings ,,somehow test your cable if you can, If you believe none of this is at fault and YOU believe you have properly installed your CPU and Your Socket is without any bent pins and your ram is Seated Properly and your PSU is working properly..Its time to start thinking of RMA.. this is just my 2cents.gif

All the reading i have done today about iGPU not working on Sabertooth z77 with Ivy bridge flavor cpu
and unable to set multi above 35 in bios and various ram issues ..have all resulted in RMA of board and or CPU.. TBH if i had these kind of issues right out of the box i would not hesitate to RMA immediately.

. I've found that when I leave the offset + on auto i'm getting 1.44v...I'm going to try and leave it on auto and go for a 4.7 OC will post back later and tell you all how it goes.

I cant use auto at all in higher multi's.. the V sky rockets quickly to a unmanageable supply. i7 3770k .. I did alot of testing to find +.035 and multi 45 LLC to ultra high is stable and 12hr prime no problem..

This is truly an awesome motherboard runs perfectly especially after flashing from 0801 to 1504 for some reason it wouldn't remember my boot order after the computer had been turned off (restarting or resetting didn't do anything only shutdown made the boot order change on version 0801)

i do not regret buying this board and flashing was a breeze can only recommend this highly :-D

to use a discreet Graphics card with the iGPU you'll have to enable the "multimonitor" function in the bios. This will only enble the discreet to run as a secondary not a main.

Mikers as far as your issue is concerned, I'm under the impression that an RMA or an exchange at your retailer ( if thats a viable option) is in need. If you've tried to change the resolution and it still does what you say its def a mobo issue.

Contact Asus if need be and see if there are some settings that perhaps we the community and yourself have missed as far as onboard vid......but I am in agreement with Hanover, if my board did what you described or anything other have desribed with mem/pci slots, you bet your bottom dollar that i'd be hoping in my car and driving back to Micro-Center. I had to do it 4 times with a Gigabyte 990fxa-UD7..not to mention the other 2 exchanges I made them do because I had them test it at the store..yes folks a total of 6 exchanges before I got a good board. I'll never by gigabyte again, not even a 512 USB stick

Hanover, the blessig of the 3770k is the lower voltage you are able to use to get a 4.5 overclock. I have to use 0.050 ( 1.25). I'm hoping to save up to get a 3770k and perhaps another sabertooth:). heck I hae the one wiht the broken pins, contacted Asus and they said it would cost me 130 to fix.

Not sure if that was a button i pressed or a server issue. I've also ran this setting at 102. Bclk and didn't get any probs

The game closing out is a sign of an unstable overclock, BF3 is a good test if it is not stable your game will crash or freeze.

I passed 12 hours of prime and thought I was stable then BF3 freezes and crashes......

Im finaly stable at 4.5 can push it further with my water cooling but im happy with this result for now.

Asus Z77 Sabertooth Fails to Boot. Boot_Device_LED & Keyboard not resonding (Solved)

I've been working on trying to get my PC to boot into Windows for the past 2 hours. Yesterday it was working finre and the last thing I did was watch Puss in Boots in 3D with my neice.

The symptions are:
Boot_Device_LED stays on Red; Keyboard does not respond when hitting "Del" to enter Bios. The system eventually boots into Windows by itself after 7 mins or so.

I've tried:
Clear CMOS.
Remove battery.
Reseat RAM and press Mem OK button.
Reseat GPUs.
Remove Crossfire bridge and attempt to boot up on one GPU.
Check SATA connections on SSD and attempt to boot on different cables and M/B connectors.
Attempt to boot on another SSD.
Tried another Keyboard.
Re-flash to an earlier BIOS using Asus Bios Flashback Utility after renaming bios file to Z77ST.CAP.
Tried calling the company I bought it from, only to find out they were closed as I was going to ask for technical help.

Solution:
So after hours of swearing in this humid weather and heat I thought I'd pull only connect critical peripherals. Last night I decided to charge my HTC via USB and connected it to the back of my PC (USB ports). After I removed that the computer finally booted up.

What a relief and also what a waste of time especially since my mobile connected via usb was to blame.

If you want the PC to boot then the mobile device has to be on, not in standby or switched off. I'll raise this with Asus so hopefully a bios update will fix this.
