When you boot into windows it runs at your monitors native resolution, so this then bypasses your monitors scaling because the input is the correct resolution for your screen. Your bios however does not run at your native resolution so the scaling from your monitors built in chip takes over. Check the menus on your monitor itself and see if there is a scaling setting, you will probably want to make sure you set it to full screen and then reboot and check what happens...

Please re-read my post... it has nothin to do with the monitor.

Thanks.

I would suggest using Gigabytes SIV software to adjust the pump RPM. That's what i use for my pump and fans

Yeah, you're right, I should have looked at the software from Gigabyte first. SIV calibrated the pump RPM at around 1300 for idle temps, which is perfect as far as I'm concerned. I'm using a SMP35X with a Reserator V2 to cool the GPU/CPU. Now that the pump is running at 1300, I can't hear anything, which is what I was trying to achieve.

I am new to building a PC and about to order everything for my next build. Just need some help regarding the compatibility of the Noctua NH-D15 with a UD5 TH in a Fractal R5 case.

This is my full build: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/s6c8KZ

Will the D15 have enough clearance with that memory and PCIE slots?

Also is the PWM compatible with the UD5 TH?

Thanks!

Not trying to be funny but you could have Googled your questions and got your answers.

That said, the PWM fans that come with the Noctua NH-D15 are definitely compatible with the UD5 TH. It just a matter of how you set them up in the BIOS or Gigabytes SIV Software.

BTW here a video on the NH-D15 that should answer some of your questions.... Noctua NH-D15 Silent Tower Heatsink With that, you may want to stay away from tall RAM modules such at Corsair's Dominator Platinum RAM. These might be too tall.

Good luck.

Hey guys, I've had the Z170X-Gaming 7 and a i7 6700k for a few weeks now and was wondering if it was possible to set my vcore range from 0.89v to 1.2v. At the moment my CPU (on auto) operates at 0.888v (800Mhz) and can go as high as 1.4v at 100% load (4200Mhz) which i think is overkill (screenshot).

Admittedly I've never looked long enough to see it spike to 1.4v but I occassionally see it hit 1.3v+ in HWMonitor. I've tried setting the vcore to 1.2v but it loses it's adaptive setting and my CPU just sticks at 4.2Ghz (it's stock turbo frequency). At 1.2v my system idles at 29°C and climbs to 50°C when being stress tested. I don't have a problem with these temps but I thought it would be useful to make the voltage adaptive again as I'm not overclocking the CPU.

Hello Goombles,

You would have to set an offset voltage in order to have the multiplier and Vcore scale with the CPU load.

The setup would be similar to below except you wouldn't change the multiplier.

Here are my BIOS screen shots if you need a reference. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The problem is when I set the vcore to normal it still wants to give the CPU all of the voltage it's requesting (my vcore matches the vid). I tried setting a DVID amount the same as yours but my PC doesn't boot. I find this to be really weird because my pc will pass stress tests on 1.2 vcore. I'm on the F6 bios and my LLC, C-states and EIST are on auto.

Edit: I got the EIST to work by changing the minimum power setting in windows.

Man, I really want to like the Gaming 6/7 Z170's, but I keep hearing inane problems...not problems that should be happening on $180-$220 motherboards. And not just from reviewers, but users, too.

Hard|OCP on the Gaming 6 showed some really crappy RAM overclocking and high MOSFET temperatures, not to mention out of the box instability.

KitGuru on the Gaming 7 showed sizeable Vdroop even with LLC on the highest possible setting (High): set at 1.40V, Prime95 yields 1.37V.

eTeknix showed sad performance on the Intel i219V NIC: other i219V implementations were very consistent, within 1-2%, but the Gaming 7 lagged 33% behind.

Finally, there is a big problems thread on Gigabyte's UK forums with the Gaming 7's audio with Creative Core3D or whatever.

In this motherboard, I was looking for great overclocking on CPU & DDR4, great onboard audio (at least not worse than average!), and great fan control. Is Z170 just not Gigabyte's cup of tea?

Ye I would probably avoid Gigabyte right now. I've built a few systems over the years but the Gaming 7 just pisses me off. For some reason my Sata1 port gives terrible write speeds so I can't use it. The system holds quite a lot of power when it's completely shut down, enough to potentially damage my usb sticks if I leave them in overnight. The Creative audio sucks, it has problems with the amplification creating white noise at all volume levels and the amount of amplification is simply way too much on the lowest setting. The PCI/RAM sockets are also terrible... I have to take my whole motherboard out just to remove my graphics card because my card (gigabyte 970) is flush with the release mechanism. The PCI/RAM sockets were great on my UD3R so I don't know why they changed it to an inferior lock/release system. Motherboards look really flashy these days but the manufacturers have made terrible design choices over the years and it will never ever get mentioned in hardware reviews.

And that's what's so frustrating. Half the Gaming 7 reviews are spotless, winning awards. The other half show glaring flaws and major slip-ups by Gigabyte. Either there is terrible quality control or there were some real duds sent out to just reviewers.

Looks great on paper...TI Burr-Brown DACs, full I/O slot covers, RGB LEDs....yet the basics got abandoned: overheating MOSFETs, iffy NICs, worse than 2010 stock audio, suspicious quality control, and--are you kidding me--board layout issues?

How...long....has...this....company....been....making....motherboards?

The RMA & technical support is, IMO, bar none. I'm still giddy about how smooth their corporate support system is. But, if the actual boards are not that great....why bother?

Damn it, Gigabyte.
