Update- z170 Gaming-G1 BIOS f7f seems to work fine with my Corsair 3200 memory and no issues detecting the XMP profile like the F6 BIOS versions. Still testing, but looks like I will no longer have to use F5i.

I had to revert to f5i because f6g beta did not work with the XMP profile. I also tested this board with G.SKILL Ripjaws V 3000 2x8GB ( F4-2666C15D-8GVR ) memory using XMP profile with BIOS f5i. With both memory, I ran Memtest overnight and Prime95 and other tests for many hours of additional testing.

The problem was that when the F6 series was the latest BIOS, they didn't work with XMP. New doesn't always mean better, or even fewer bugs.

Anyone here own the Gigabyte Z170N Gaming 5 (ITX). Looking for reliability and quality of the build and would you recommend.

When I manually set the core ratio and (1-core through 4-core) turbo ratios all to the same value, it seems like speedstep is disabled, as my core clock stays at the max frequency that i set, all the time.
Am i missing the option which disables/enables the speedstep / downclocking when CPU is idle?


Edit: EIST and all the C-states are enabled.

I would like to enable it, as the power savings would be nice. Cheers!


EDIT2:
I got it. It was the windows power management settings. Set to high-performance and it keeps your CPU at 100% clock rating.
When I set it to "Balanced" I noticed my clock was able to drop, but that my Vcore didn't move.
This resulted in the same power usage (well actually 1w less) as running at full clock speed all the time.

I had to change my fixed vcore in the bios to using DVID which adds voltage dynamically as far as I can tell. I'm in the process of running stability tests now.

I should note, that if you use DVID in the bios and set power management to balanced, the Vcore is dropped while the cpu frequency stays maxed. I could see this causing stability issues with overclocks.

I've dropped my power usage by 10w at the wall when idle.

EDIT3:
It seems the DVID options acts like LLC under load. (even with LLC set to normal in the bios)
It forces the vcore to match the VID with the offset you've chosen. This doesn't let the CPU droop under full load like intel's spec calls for.
I'm going to try to set a manual negative DVID to account for the amount of vDroop, but I think this will cause stability issues. I'll report back

EDIT4:
A negative DVID value doesn't let the computer boot, as it's trying to drop the vcore even at lower processor states and usages, which isn't how vDroop normally works.
Looks like i'm stuck at running the processor at full vCore and clockspeed all the time, if I want to allow the processor to droop under full load.
Damn.
I'm using the same mobo and cpu as you, F4e BIOS - curious what HWinfo64 reports your "CPU Package Power" (watts) is using at idle - for me it's ~12.75w. I'm still using the settings I mentioned in post #555 (LLC "standard") and the system is 9 hours no errors with x264 v2.06 rendering test.

Notes: With x45 CPU & uncore, couldn't boot at less than +0.45DVID, increased 0.05 until Prime95 v27.7 (AVX) could run 1344k in place for 5 minutes (110% any real-world test, too damn hot for long tests on air for me). Due to the bug I mentioned in #559, I set all core usage in turbo to x45 and disabled it.

Memory - G.Skill 3000mhz cl15 4x4gb, "enhanced performance" setting in BIOS, XMP and manually input primary timings 14-15-15-35 cr1 @ 3066mhz, tested HCI memtest 1000% coverage. [edit: 1.38v dram, vccio 1.15v, sys.agent 1.15v - possibly stable at less but I'm tired of stress tests]

What version?

I just updated to F7f the latest one on the official website. No issues. Various previos BIOS versions have had issues with XMP memory profiles. The problem gets fixed, then comes back again. Makes you wonder about their quality control system.

I have the GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 and I'm trying to disbale Spread Spectrum in BIOS and I see no options. Even if I manually select 100.00 for the Host Clock I still get wild Bus speed fluctuations. I'm on BIOS version F7G. Anyone else notice this?

Finally got my i5 and straight away, issues came up mad.gif. Threw a 55 memory error, though I was able to finally boot w/ one stick of ram in the 2nd black slot. Updated to F4 from F3 and now all sticks are detected. Only niggle was that it refused to boot up on a hdd, though the ssd booted up perfectly normal (the hdd is from my second system and not intended for this one). i5 tested perfect for about 10 minutes of IBT and w/ a hyper 212, stayed in the 50s at stock. No water yet, as I'm waiting for some final bits for my loop.
