Z77X-UD3H Review and OC Testing (Circuit Analysis, LN2 runs, Efficiency Comparison) - Page 2

post #11 of 36
I REALLY like the UD3H and the depth of your review is awesome. But can you tell me does UD3H or UD5H support UASP / SuperSpeed USB 3.0?
Cause this site http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1882/13/ did some review and ASUS Deluxe is just jaw dropping fast. The biggest diff near an additional (180MB/s Seq. read) FASTER than UD5H. If just within 30MB/s that's fine, just data discrepancy, but this is ridiculous. Is it possible for you to do some test? Cause this much diff is giving me second thoughts.

SATA 6Gbps Performance is also slower than ASUS, whyyy?

there used to be a turbo on the Z68 GB boards for USB 3.0 which would take a lane from the GPU's PCI-E lanes and redirect it to the USB 3.0 controller thus heavily increasing its speed. I have both the UD3H and the UD5H, i would think the UD3H has faster USB 3.0 than the UD5H.

SuperSpeed is a certification given to certain controllers that meet USB's top standards, and both the UD3H and the UD5H meet that. I am not sure if they have the UASP protocol.

Do you use USB 3.0 that much?

The SATA6G shouldn't be slower unless they tested marvell instead of Intel. The BIOS also makes a huge difference, so I will test both of those for you.

Great review. I am currently considering this board vs the msi z77-gd55. I wanted to stay with Gigabyte because this P45 board im using now is great. I think my mind is now made to stay with gigabyte. How important would you say is the 2oz copper difference between this and the D3H and is it worth the extra $15? I am aiming for a 4.2 - 4.6 OC on a 3570k.

it depends on how much $15 is worth to you. Both boards can do the same OC. But the $15 also buys you the 8-pin power supply connector, which isn't a big deal since the M3 only has a 4-pin and I took the CPU to 6.3ghz easily. But if you want top OC scores under LN2 like >6.5ghz you might want the UD3H. But if you want to use the user profiles, i do not have a D3H, so you would have to get profiles from another user if you wanted to just load up an OC profile and OC. I however can also guide you through the process.

Hi Sin,

Thanks for your in depth review. +rep

I think this is the motherboard that I will use for my next build. It is a very good value board. One quick question regarding the system fan control on the MB. I was looking to get an Asus Z77 MB, because they have FanXpert on it and I plan to use PWM fans for my case so it can stay quiet during idle or low CPU/GPU usage.

Does this board have something similar to FanXpert?

um easytune6 can control smart fan control through windows. In the BIOS there is settings to change the Smart controls for two sets of fans. First is the CPU fan can be set at its own SMART fan settings, and then all the system fans are on a second setting, which will set the speeds for all those fans.

Hey, why don't the bundled fan programs read core temps? What is the point of CPU temp (TCase) being used to control fans? I've found that sensor goes way off at high OC's.

Core temperatures..

SpeedFan can read everything but it's hard to learn, and it seems like it only controls a maximum of three headers.

However I must add, use at your OWN risk. All you have to do is basically load in one of these profiles and you have the easiest OC ever!
To use a profile you will need to open it take the file without extension inside the .RAR and place it on a thumb-drive formatted in FAT32 and then go into your BIOS and load profile from the USB drive.
THis is a .RAR with all the UD3H profiles, it contains a bunch of profiles each in their own .RAR
UD3H: http://www.mediafire.com/?mm21ct5dn650b6h
The vcore is set a bit higher just to make sure the system boots, users can always go decrease the vcore.
First you have the 45G&1600mhz this is a 4.5ghz OC with 1600mhz XMP profile loaded. I think the Vcore is around 1.3v and you can always lower it.
Next there is the 45GwithDVID which is a 4.5ghz OC with DVID and power savings enabled, i think vcore is together at max 1.3v, you can always lower the vcore
Next there is the CPUOC and thus is just made for high CPU oc without memory OC done to it.
Next you have CPUOCwinXP which is same as the one above, but designed for the system to deal with Windows XP, so HDD/SSD is in IDE mode and the xHCI is set to auto instead of smart auto.
Next you have LN2 profile, which is designed for LN2 cooling, it doesn't' have a high OC, but it does have stock BCLK higher than 100 and all power savings maxed out.
Next you have memoryfreq which is the timings loosened for high memory frequency, it is set for cas11, if you want cas12 you will need to change tWL to 9 or 10, i forget. I used this memory profile to take my DDR3 2000mhz cas 9 to 2700 and then i tighten the 3rd timings first and then move onto the other timings.
Upgrade from Z68 to Z77? Sure you would be upgrading, but by how much and how many gains is up to you(they aren't that big from sandy to ivy). You probably wont notice a difference in terms of speed in windows. IMO keep your current rig and you will be fine.

Hi, SIN . are the profile files compatible for my i5 3570K?
I've just bought z77x-ud3h & i5 3570K, feeling so weird that the voltage value showing on CPU-Z is 1.440v (AIDA64 Stability Test) when OC 3570K @4.5G in all auto BIOS set.(I've just check the stock voltage of my 3570k, it's 1.185v damn.... )
What is the exact procedures to find the suitable voltage for my CPU?

BTW: sorry about my freshman quest....
