I shall check them out and dwood, thanks for the info mate thumb.gif laser is what I assumed as it looks really smooth and clean, but did not want to pretend I knew tongue.gif nice work. wink.gif

may seem a silly question but did (anyone that has one) the G1S3 packaging have any sort of plastic wrap, tape or seals of any sort? I ask mine from the egg has nothing what so ever and the mobo is just sitting in the box. Just wondering if they have perhaps sent me a return or some such.

bear in mind this will be my first "ground up" build. so no clue as to how mobo's are packaged, I seen an asrock board zip tied to the foam form is the only thing I have to go by.

I really like the green accents on this mobo, its not as, how shall I say this? not as florescent as it seems in some pics i've seen. happy camper thus far smile.gif

Had this board for the past month and a half and loving it so far. I have my 3770K overclocked to 4.5GHz. Temps are a bit high but that's understandable with Ivy Bridge.. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif



I also have the M3 that is coupled with an i5-2500K. biggrin.gif

I haven't tried any of Gigabyte's P67 or Z68 boards but I did have a H67 (which I sold a few weeks ago) and currently have a H61. Most of my P67 or Z68 boards were from Asus primarily but also have tried ECS, Sapphire, EVGA, and MSI. Asus is still the only one with a UEFI that isn't laggy or has a better layout than the rest. Although Gigabyte is certainly catching up, they still need to fix the mouse lag on either my Z77, X79, and H61 boards.

questions about this mobo and software install.

for some reason I cannot install the lucid virtu mvp software, says its no onboard or some such , ideas? perhaps something I have missed in the bios?

Xpress Recovery2 , I have no idea how this got onto my ssd but it is obviously taking up a :LARGE amount of real estate that I would rather it not. matter of fact I don't think I even want it on my system period. how on earth do I get rid of it? it also shows up in the boot sequence after the mobo bios splash screen says something to the effect of " to recover with xpress recovery2 press any button..... "

I use acronis true image home and have no use for this xpress and all the space its taking. if I had to guess its between 25 and 40 GIG its hogged up.

and the killer nic, I for the life of me can't get it to work , switch over to lan2 and intel and it works straight away. I wanted to take advantage of the traffic shaping features of the killer lan .. but no frown.gif

thanks guys smile.gif please bear in mind this is my very first build. yes a noob tongue.gif

Sorry I don't know the answer to your other questions but as for the Killer NIC, are you using the latest driver from Gigabyte's website? I take it you don't get any internet connection when the cable is plugged in that port?

Note: If the driver on the Gigabyte website isn't working, then try this one: http://www.station-drivers.com/telechargement/atheros/bigfoot/atheros_bigfoot_6.1.0.403-allos(www.station-drivers.com).exe

To install MVP you need to go into the BIOS set INIT Display First to iGPU, and then enable the iGPU, and plug your display into the iGPU. You can also remove your dGPU and then plug into the board, which is the easiest. Then you need to go into windows, install Intel HD graphics driver and then install virtu MVP.

THen you can go into the BIOS or reinstall your dGPU, and then just enable the iGPU too. You can mess around with it.

It says that with xpressrecovery b/c your driver DVD is still in your DVD drive!! LOL.

thanks you guys , repped. smile.gif

I will try that driver simpletech. the odd thing was , and still not fig this out yet , but when trying the killer nic my network on the pc did not show up. change to intel and it was there and worked straight away.

sin0822, when u speak of the simplest way , you mean physically remove both my discrete gpus? and connect monitor to the mobo? then install the intel hd graphics driver and once its installed to install MVP? and the intel hd graphics drivers are on the driver dvd?


LOL as well with you on the driver dvd being still in drive lol DOH redface.gif
the confusing part is the size (space) taken up on the ssd. its 25 to 40 gig taken, and it is the only thing I can think of that would do that, but... I don't recall installing xpress recovery2, *scratches head . I do not see it in add/remove programs. this space being taken up has me perplexed. when I read about xpress recovery2 it says it places the saved file at the end of the drive it is backing up. so again, perplexing.

on a new note. is there a place to d/l the profiles of others for this mobo? I ask that as I read you can save and or load profiles from a hard drive as well, as well, regarding cpu and mem timings?

(my first ever build) as I don't know jack about any of it. and the easytune6 from what I can make of it overclocks everything. I'd like a stable OC of the cpu , no oc on memory , only for it to run at rated speeds (2400) and gpu to be left alone.

appreciate the help, this has been quite the learning experience for me, there are SO many variables to consider.

sometimes windows will take up a lot of space after a clean install on the main drive, especially if that is the only drive and it is small. I have no idea why it does that.

but yea easiest way to force the board to use the iGPU is to remove the dGPU.
