Well that is good.

Maybe it is/was just one guy in the factory being sloppy. biggrin.gif Or maybe they corrected it. My pic is from early September from a Newegg order placed on 8/30

This is when they were first released so it wasn't that. I got my board as part of the initial brand new just released mobo stock people were buying up...

Why do people insist on making excuses for companies or pretending mistakes don't happen. The tarnish/fingerprint isn't even a huge deal, but the attempts to dismiss it are annoyingly fanboyish... rolleyes.gif

That is a minor problem and only aesthetic (but I am with you CasualCat) I have bought it from a German distributor, the mobo smelled strong, as a new mobo.

Now that I have taken care of the ram module wire thing. The computer works very well and it overclocks really good (minus the hdds problems).

For me the real problem is the alpha like BIOS, in other forums I have a lot of people asking me for help with non POST and/or endless reset loop gigabyte x99 boards (right know one with a gaming 5), and this is driving me crazy, because even if you go to all the gigabyte region sites the last BIOS for all are dated: 18/9/2014 and even Betas seriously!!.

Now I have helped to go through the problems (9 in other forum and another one right now) and help other people with their mobos so they can enjoy their product, and last I checked I wasn't getting anything from gigabyte except a "bad" mobo lol

How should know any average user the existence of newer beta BIOS in tweak town forums, that without counting my fellow spanish and dutch that don't understand English very well.

And today They have updated all the mobos except my model : Gaming 7 (basically exactly the same as the G1 model), well let's say that with all the problems with the hard drives and their partitions that I have, I feel insulted due the lack of bios support, and even more seeing that my mobo is the only one not updated.

And here we have Stasio and Sin trying to help, but in spanish and dutch forums there is no even one representative to be seen, Where are they?

Curiously gigabyte spain had the annual dinner-meet with representatives of webs, shops and distributors to present their X99 MOBOS and NUCs.

I think I found the culprit to the random instability I was having on the Gigabyte X99 Gaming G1. I was having the same random problems after I put my system back together with the Asus Rampage V Extreme motherboard. Then today, all of a sudden, the system wouldn't boot anymore. I removed four sets of memory sticks and the system booted just fine. I replaced the four remaining stick in there with the sticks I took out and the system refused to boot. I traced the problem down to one bad memory stick by trying those four 1 at a time. The memory stick must have been on the verge of completely failing and then today did actually completely fail. It's a frustrating experience. It would have been impossible for me to tell which one was bad since when it was working, it would run stress tests fine. It was only at random times that the system would shut off. Stress test or no stress test.

Well, anyway, I'm going to keep the Rampage V Extreme. It allows for much higher memory speeds with the four DDR4 sticks I have in there. I think I'm going to stick with 16GB of memory. I never really needed 32GB anyway. The board runs DDR4 3000 just fine... so far.

[DOUBLE POSTRANT]

Pulling what's left of my hair out over my x99 giga board and 5820k. Nothing seems to change anything anymore. Load up Easytune and click on any of the default options and nothing seems to result in any changes to the ACTUAL frequency of my CPU.

Load up XTU and change any slide bar to ANYTHING and bam, nothing actually changes the frequencies of my chip.

Tried Bios F9e beta's through f8 stable, and NOTHING seems to change anything.

I did not have this problem last week. Tried reinstalling everything from scratch, (Easytune, BIOS, XTU, Intel chipset management.) Below is a picture of my MB trolling me. Note how there is no correlation whatsover between XTU sliders and result, CPU-Z or otherwise.





Furthermore, if I plug in my WD My Book 3TB usb 3.0 drive into any rear usb port I can't get into BIOS (just black screens after post). Also if I turn on my Aune T1 USB DAC BEFORE I log into windows I get ridiculous and damaging random static pops in my speakers. Turning it on after I log in has no problems.

Now the Aune T1 is not a very common usb device so I can understand that Gigabyte is not exactly flogging their programmers to fix that problem, but my WD My Book is THE MOST common usb 3.0 storage drive on planet earth (sell it at Costco FFS) so why is this device killing my MB's functionality??

Where is the "Turn off Troll" button on this cursed MB??!?!?!?!!? I've been a Gigabyte purist for years, but man this MB was put out by their JV squad for sure.

First calm down a bit, its not like you just contracted ebola lol j/k

First of all:
Did you install Intel ME? Its a driver you can find it here:

First you need to install this hotfix to Intel Intel's ME driver: http://download.gigabyte.asia/FileList/Driver/mb_driver_me-hotfix_64_x99.zip

Then install the driver: http://download.gigabyte.asia/FileList/Driver/mb_driver_intel_me_x99.zip

Then try this program, its GIGABYTE Tweak Launcher:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/j3s8erasursabs2/GTL+2.1+B14.0930.1.rar

However you should OC through BIOS and if you want to make in windows changes I prefer gigabyte tweak launcher.
