I never noticed it changing anything else on my Gigabyte boards either, but they didn't have the helpful list so I might have missed something.

It's a programmable setting in XMP, not everything uses it - AFAIK.

Given that you're using 8-8-8-24, you're probably not at 2200-3000+mhz to be stressing the IMC and for some systems to require it, so~

Well I am waiting on my last parts to be delivered to start building my PC. In anticipation I started downloading all the drivers from Gigabytes site and I have a question.

I will be using windows 8 and there is one driver I don't understand the Intel SATA Preinstall driver
(For AHCI / RAID Mode)
Note: Windows setup to read from USB thumb drive.

When am I to install that and will it effect me being able to enable ACHI mode for my ssd?

You only need that to install Windows XP or if for some stupid reason Win 7/8/8.1 displays errors related to SATA during installation.

Oh ok thanks. Ok I have one more question about the USB 3.0 drivers I extracted the zip file and there were 3 folders in it. Each has a MSuSetup.exe and a setup.msu with the setup.msu file being much bigger. I have no idea which to install first cause it says to install the hotfixes after the main driver.
post #1675 of 1852
Just install Windows 8.1 straight away. You don't need hotfixes or any USB 3.0 drivers for it. Otherwise, run just setup ones in each folder.

Well, it's been running fine for the last day and a half with the memory set to its BIOS default of 1333Mhz. I've just entered the proper settings for the memory manually, and hoping it will run it at its advertised speed....

I have the OC series of this board (Z87X-OC) and have problems with hard drive booting. Half of the time my only hard drive wouldn't boot into GRUB (I have Xubuntu installed). It wouldn't detect any bootable device, and I have to reboot in order for the hard drive to be detectable again and boot properly. When I shut down from Linux, and reboot, the missing hard drive problem comes back.

Setting SATA mode to IDE or AHCI doesn't seem to make a difference. Is this a problem with some board revisions?

I had a similar problem, possibly, with my first UD5H. When my SSD's were connected to the Intel SATA ports, the OS drive would get "lost" from time to time.
The fix for that board was plugging the drives into the Marvel ports instead.
My second UD5H has not had that problem.

I'll try that when I get to installing some other hardware on the computer. This problem has been another curve ball in with a Linux installation that I'm also having to deal with.

Posted this in the GBT Z87 overclocking guide, but thought I'd put it here in case it's of use to anyone else.

I've had fun and games running an 8gb kit of Teamgroup Vulcan 2400Mhz CL10 memory. It produced random shut-downs and crashes in memtest on the UD4H board when running at its specified settings. I checked the RAM on a Z77X-UP4, which ran it without any problem. I've eventually got it running on the Z87X-UD4H by upping the CPU system agent voltage by 0.021v and the CPU I/O analog and digital voltages by 0.02v. Slightly disappointed that it took that much tweaking to get some RAM running at its proper spec, but there we go. Would be interested to hear if anyone else has had similar experiences.
