Since my board keeps putting up error codes 15 and 19, should i just RMA it for a new one that hopefully works?

Is there any way to auto-apply the fan profile from EasyTune at Windows startup ? At the moment I have to manually launch EasyTune and to apply my fan profile manually which is quite a hassle. And the BIOS fan options are worthless for me.

I think it's bugged, mine doesn't remember settings either. I hope they sort it out. I used EasyTune 6 on my X58X-UD7 for years to set my Fan Speed without issues.

Atm i'm thinking about putting the Fan Speed reducer in, and cap them at 1200 RPM since the Noctua NF-A14 Fans are still silent at that speed. And leave the settings at Silent in the Bios.

Has anyone got the HD bios working on these boards yet?
It won't let me use it, even tried downloading some uefi bios for my evga cards thinking that might be it but still no go :'(
The new bios menu is horrible, hoping HD makes it usable at least.
If not I'll just keep hitting F2 everytime to bring back something less cluttered and usable.
All though the amount of little things on this board like text that doesn't fit in boxes and typos etc it's no wonder gigabyte boards always lack in stability compared to asus :/
If they can't even get the text on screen right god knows what they've stuffed up internally...
Sick to death of having to disconnect my mouse every time the system shuts down unexpectedly as well...

Have you tried running the board outside of the case? Like sitting on a piece of cardboard or something to rule out case shorts?
It's not sounding good if it's dying that early in the post :'(

This is the 2nd board I've had with a debug led and the first one I had (an msi board) was DOA.
Made it to BIOS once, then died with some random code that didn't really mean anything usefull lol.
I think alot of the time they give you false hope that it is still a good board because you can see it's doing something, when if you didn't have the debug led you would of just sent the board back as DOA already tongue.gif

edit: Please excuse the double post, I tried to edit my first post and it reposted the whole thing as a new post.... go figure :/
I've reported it for deletion thumb.gif

BTW you can chose whether you want Classic Mode to come up first or if you want Windows mode to come up first. You can also choose what page in Windows Mode you want, all these settings are under the "setup tab" in windows mode. To get FULL HD mode and it isn't then just try to use the iGPU and your monitor. But beware you also need to use something that can provide full HD capability, HDMI works best with a 1080P monitor.

Here is another thing, what are you talking about the text in the screen? You are talking about that underline being really too close to the text?????? THAT IS actually how it is designed, I had complained about this since I first saw it as I thought it was a design flaw, however Iw as told that the designers of the BIOS ACTUALLY wanted it this way, but I will report that other users find it ugly as well, sometimes these guys have bad taste and other times they have very good taste.

Where are the typos???

Please if you can report specifically then I can try and report it to people who can actually fix it.

Yea its just diable switches for each slot. You can always run two GPUs off diferent types of controllers, the last slot and the first 3 are run by the PCh and CPU respectivly. I am not sure how that relates to two different GPUs.

You aren't using the board's video outputs instead of the GPU's are you? In any case can you try the last slot and see if that is the issue? Also the side of the PCI-E disable switches which turns off the ports is listed as ON, lol. So try them in the different position and see if it is better.

Yea something is wrong man frown.gif if you did what i told you and you are getting this error then something is dead. THe fact that it goes to 15 from 19 means the PCH is fine, but the board isn't initializing the CPU or memory for some reason could be the board or something else. I had seen that exact thing happen, but just a clear CMOS fixed it because it was incorrect settings/bad OC. You did try the dual BIOS selector with dual BIOS mode enabled, right?

This is a known issue they are working on it right now.

YOu guys can also try speedfan, but I haven't tried it yet.

IMO why is so bad with the BIOS settings? I mean you are basically doing the same thing in windows except you don't have to run easytune.

Also make sure to calibrate the fans with easytune or it wont properly work.

In the BIOS you can only set linear ramps with different angle. Even the lowest PWM multiplier is needlessly aggressive for my AIO water cooler. My profile in EasyTune instead is fixed to the minimum fan speed till 50 degress celsius and the maximum fan speed is at 70% not 100%. That gives me a much more pleasant acoustic profile.

The version of Speedfan I downloaded from the site didn't work but maybe a beta version does, haven't tried yet.


Overclocking the 4770k is also a strange experience. The CPU runs perfectly fine at 4.2Ghz with 1.2v (haven't tried lower yet) in AIDA, pi, IBT, etc but I can't get 4.3Ghz stable, not even with 1.3v (temperatures are not a problem). I am using a minimum of changes in the BIOS so far (essentially CPU frequency and CPU voltage). I guess one of the other voltage settings might be of help. Maybe somebody has an idea?

Never been able to get SpeedFan to work, it;s way to complicated.

As i said, ill put the Noctua Reducer in so they can't go higher than 1200 RPM. No extra software needed at all then.

Okay so no speedfan, how about setting silent profile in the BIOS then is that too much?

Yes some CPUs really, really, really, really suck....... You can try straight up OC though, disable turbo(just the first turbo setting) and disable power saving features(everything under hyperthreading), set 2.0v on the FIVR, 1.3v on the CPU vcore, and set LLC to extreme, set vring to 1.15v. See how high you can get in windows(you will need to use OC Touch or GTL and B10 BIOS to do this best), also make sure your BIOS is up to date, INtel can make microcode improvements for the CPUs and improve their OC through BIOS updates, that is if they are holding back.

I will make a bigger deal about this. But BTW, have either of you tried this? Click preferences in EasyTUne and there is a setting to apply settings from easytune on reboot, check that box as yes, see if that changes anything.

Yeah, way too much unfortunately. Due to water it really only needs a minimum fan speed for a pretty long time even overclocked. I think have seen Speedfan running with a Z87 Gigabyte board somewhere. Have to check that out. Speedfan looks frightening first but when you find the 3 really important settings then it's pretty straightforward. On my current ASUS Z68 board there is a custom fan curve option in the BIOS, that's the best solution since it's applied automatically even before Windows. If it weren't for the golden colors, I would have gotten a ASUS board again, I hink, lol.

Thanks for the tips. I will try that out tomorrow (my Z87 test setup is at work). I tried the F5i beta BIOS but that didn't seem to make any difference compared to F4. I also hope that the uncore frequency setting will be fixed soon since it's not possible to go over 3900Mhz with 100 bus clock.

Already tried it. It doesn't seem to do anything. The launch time of AppCenter and Easytune are also quite annoying. After I am on my Windows desktop, I have to wait another 5 - 10 seconds until the AppCenter appears in the tray icon area. Then I have to click it to be able to launch EasyTune. Then it takes another 3-5 seconds until Easytune launches. That's on a fresh Windows 7 Pro installation. Actually, starting the AppCenter takes about the same time as booting Windows, really.
