Z77 board for 3770K ? - Page 2

post #11 of 48
The Gigabyte Z77 UP4 is pretty good and just barely under $200.
The MSI Mpower is around the same price and good, as well. It has no voltage offset option though.

Terrible MOSFETs.

Yep. Really the only disadvantage of Gigabyte boards is limited fan control.
Yeah, I've definitely noticed that on mine. No real other problems, though.

Terrible mosfets, and no excuse to buy it now since there are about 4 boards for the same price that are better (the USA prices).

I thought G1 Sniper 3 has full control over all headers, doesn't it?

Easytune fan control never seemed to work very well for me, and I just ended up getting lazy and using a manual controller. It also has no voltage based fan control, and it didn't do 100% speed on my Antec 620 pump for some reason. I just ended up giving up on the fan control. I think speedfan is compatible if you are using PWM fans, though.

Did you try setting these settings in the SpeedFan?



Because G1 Sniper 3's manual lists that non CPU headers support full voltage control, but not PWM thinking.gif.

I was using the CPU header to control one of the fans. I didn't know the other ones had voltage control; speedfan didn't work with the CPU header.
I never seem to be able to get speedfan to work properly.
post #16 of 48
Speedfan doesn't work at all unless you set these settings (software controlled, and don't forget remember it checkmark). If you ever try, let me know. It'll be interesting to know whether G1 Sniper 3 really supports full control, or not.

And I got mine at 5.1GHz and waiting for the impending doom of MOSFETs exploding, though I did add a couple of 40mm fans on the MOSFETs to slightly help with the issue of them being awful, you can actually keep your fingers on them now while running Prime. But they are still awful.

The UD5H is an excellent choice which seems to fit the bill - my brother has one and he loves it.

Read the reviews on it, Gigabyte offers more for less, and still quality components.

HARDOCP

The GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H is a damn fine motherboard and overclocker for its price point. You can buy the non-WiFi version for about $182 and pick up the WiFi enabled model for $210 both with Free Prime Shipping. It is fairly feature rich but does make some concessions in terms of IO upgrades you will find on more expensive boards. If you are looking to make a screaming overclocked gaming system, and go "old school" in terms of BIOS tweaking, it is worthy of your short list.

AnandTech

For offering so many features on a Z77 motherboard for $180, I would like to give the Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H an AnandTech Editors' Choice Bronze Award. It represents good value in a motherboard market that is blurring the lines between mid-range and high-end products.

What do you mean the MOSFETs are poor?

They are outdated technology, overheat a lot when your CPU runs in high VCore and generally don't do too well under those conditions if stressed for a long period of time (Prime).

You can only find D-PAK MOSFETs on supercheap (60-80€?) motherboards and then the Extreme 4...
