Maybe someone here can help me. I'm having an issue where when my video card(s) are under load a high pitched electrical noise can be heard and I've confirmed that it is the motherboard. I was hoping to try playing with the PCI-E voltage in the BIOS to see if I could get it to go away but I can't seem to find that option (I Had it on my GA-X58-UD5....) in these new BIOS (I'm running F9 btw)
Before everyone goes off on telling me to test my video cards yada yada yada... I've used 3 different motherboards, 5 different video cards, 5 different power supplies, and even different cables where possible. The only combination(s) that produced the noise were the ones using this motherboard and sadly after receiving an advanced replacement from Gigabyte, the replacement does the same thing but 5x worse and also has static on the audio out channel x_x
My specs are as follows (If you need the rest let me know I only mentioned what I thought was relevant)
CPU: i7 3770s
GPU: AMD HD 7850
PSU: Corsair AX650
Power Draw Under Load: 129-138W (Running just F@H) measured by my UPS
Any help is greatly appreciated as this noise is DRIVING ME INSANE!

I have the EXACT same problem, I can't figure it out for the life of me. And it's so random. I can go days without it happening only for it to bombard me all day.

The Gigabyte Customer Support guy seemed to swear up and down it was the 680's in SLI, but that wasn't the problem because I let a friend bum one until he got a new card, due to his 6970 crapping out. And with one card, I get that weird static noise. Drives me frickin' insane.

Hello All..

I have been looking at this mobo for a few weeks now because of the color scheme and it would allow me to go tri sli.

My current Intel board has been rock solid so in reality i have no reason to switch but i am an enthusiasts so i am constantly looking to improve where i can.

Current Hardware -

CPU - 3770K

GPU - Evga 670 FTWX2

Here is how i have it set up and as you can see there is a lot of green so i would like my mobo to match better with this color scheme. I know i don't need another video card but i would like to do it just to do it.

Few questions -

If i go tri sli the cards will run at X16,X16.X8 ?

How solid is this board in terms of quality and performance ?

I read some where the max ram speed is 1600MHz ?

Yes TriFire runs at 16X16X8 . I put a soundcard in the 4th slot to force 8X8X8.
I run my ram at 2200 Mhz.
Quality is good , you get a solid feeling taking it out the box . I found it more stable than my old Asus Z77 V Pro , getting to 5Ghz now from 4.7 on the Asus.

For reference 3dMark with above setup

It is true you can 2 way sli at 16x. Once you go to a third card of any type it drops to 3way or 4way X8 though. That happens with any board though, This is one of the few z77 boards I've seen though that does 2way x16. As long as you don't add a third card you can keep it at x16. From everything I've read though even the most powerful cards (hd7970,gtx690) on the market currently won't flood a x8 connection though so all should be good.thumb.gif

The problem is i should have went X79 to begin with lol.

I was away from the game for over a year so i just jumped backed in to the latest out which was Z77.

From what i have seen a X79 set up is much better tailored for tri sli or better.

Are you using the DP? Cause that is the only one that supports that resolution.

Hey Guys,
Finished my build today however I noticed a strange problem...I can't shut my computer down through windows. If I try to shut it down, it goes through all the motions of shutting down, monitors will go to standby and all....however the case and all the computer components stay on. Has anyone encountered this or does anyone have any ideas? I've searched for a little bit but haven't found anything. Any help is greatly appreciated!

-Thanks
