Gigabyte Z77X-UP4 bios acting strangely....

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone... new here posting-wise, but plenty of useful reading done on here already smile.gif

I'm having a strange problem - unless I'm missing something obvious... I flashed to the F11a bios recently, and spent the last couple of days messing with RAM settings, which I was able to do without a problem. Then this morning I tried overclocking the CPU (i5-3570k) for the first time. (I simply used the settings from here - http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte/50348-gigabyte-z77x-up4-th-z77x-up5-th-overclock-settings-guide.html - i.e. 45 ratio, 100 BCLK, a couple of voltage tweaks, and my own RAM settings. The bios seemed to accept these, restarted fine, booted to windows fine, but CPUZ still showed the multiplier at 38 and clock at 3.8Ghz. So I restarted and went back into the BIOS, which showed the CPU running at 38 multi, but the settings were where I left them (ie 45 multi, etc). Changing these seemed to have no effect. I also reset the BIOS and booted up with the defaults, and then re-booted and changed settings again, and still get the same result: settings are as I enter them, but they have no effect on what the CPU is actually doing. The bizarre thing is that meanwhile the RAM is always running at my custom settings (2133, 9-10-10-26), even though the BIOS settings have reverted to auto.

Anyone know what's going on? I'm completely puzzled! redface.gif

What is the speed when you run intel burn test? Also voltage should be listed.

Ran Prime95 small FFT's and it remained at 38 multi/3.8GHz. Voltage was as per the tweaktown guide, ie "normal" vcore and "+0.01" for dynamic vcore...

The current status in the BIOS also stayed at 3.8, regardless...

Ive seen this on my new gigabyte bios where i tried overclocking and it stayed at my stock settings, I re flashed the bios and reset defaults, rebooted overclocked and then it was fine, did you try all that yet.

No hadn't thought of that. Will give it a go a little later and let you know - thanks!

Just tried that and it's sorted the prob - thanks! +Rep smile.gif

Great news I don't think it's you like I said I've had the same issues with my last board and my new gigabyte z87

It must be a common issue as ive experienced this on both my UP4's and UD5H. I simply reflash the bios and all is good. thumb.gif
