I cannot change the memory speed, would an upgrade from the F3 bios help this.

Update: I loaded the F5p bios and was able to load the XMP profile for my memory. Gigabyte really doesn't make it easy to do this. The 1st 3 times I set the XMP it failed. Even though the Voltage said 1.25v I had to manually change it in advanced voltage settings to get it to stick.

I think this RAM goes nicely with the Gaming 7. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The latest UEFI for gaming 5, F4 as of now from Oct 16 2015, has significant changes. Probably for their other boards too if not already, CPU vcore & VID is no longer oddly far above what the UEFI displays for vcore, load power consumption is over 10w less, temps are 10c less, idle power is over 1.5w less. I went from 1.296v for 4.5 GHz with "normal" vcore, LLC off. To 1.236v for the same speed, all settings the same. Previously on the F4c UEFI going below 1.296v, if the system manged to post, would be unstable, 1.26v caused a lock up & bsod 2 seconds after starting prime95, now its at 1.236v just as stable as it was 1.296v prior just much cooler.

But the crap fan control is still the same, i have it on the lowest setting & my CPU fan still goes to max 2000 RPM when the temp gets around 65c, loud as ever & you cant control it unlike my previous Asus Z77, still waiting for that to get addressed..also FCLK is missing from this UEFI & is locked at 800 MHz, previously the option was there for 400, 800 & 1 GHz, i thought it's spec was 1 GHz, why remove it & lock us at 800 MHz..

Did you try using the SIV in the app center? You can set profiles there.

No i hardly looked at app center, i just installed the minimal amount required for @Bios functionability as i dont like excess programs & controlling what is/should be UEFI stuff from the OS, but ill look at that closer now thank you.

I am with you on that but since there is no fan control in these bios' there is no choice. You are correct, compared to Asus the Bios' are very limited.

Yeah my RAID doubled itself, now it is shown as the regular Partition which I can access and as a unformated partition and the Killer NIC is not working at all anymore, will revert back as well I think.

EDIT got my Killer NIC back, for some reason it was deactivated in devicemanager after the flash...

Not a good sign for Gigabyte's QA when the bios they decide to take out of beta is less stable than their beta driver frown.gif
