Gigabyte GA-AX370-Gaming K7 Discussion - Page 115

post #1141 of 1550
I was rather disappointed too with k7 and generally with gigabyte on am4, bios takes too much time to release and problems are many and various (with bclk, xmp, rom Lost, dead board, clear cmos...). I will perhaps change for msi like an b350, the bios are good and often updated (and cost less)

Maybe you should just keep your system stock and run within default parameters. wink.gif

I am agree with you, but in this case i would not have needed to buy a k7 or a k5 at 260€ and i should buy a b350 at 110€. wink.gif

I had none of those problems, bclk works fine when setting pci-e gen properly, xmp works for me no problem but I prefer manual for tighter timmings, rom lost still not seen that (I know many people have had this problem though), dead card don't know what does it mean (maybe dead motherboard? Didn't happen to me yet either, but there's an easy fix disconnecting psu, taking off the battery and then pressing power button near the dimm slots for a minute or so, at least from what I've readed, this should not happen though and Gigabyte should adress it ASAP), clear CMOS works fine for me when I've needed to do it because I messed with bios settings.

I do agree BIOS updates takes too long with Gigabyte, and lacks many features other boards bioses have, and I don't like their vrm heatsinks (a heatpipe would have been pretty handy), except for that, I love this motherboard pretty much.

Getting the most out of your purchase is the best thing to do in your case. BIOS updates, you might be wishing too much for them to release a new one given that AMD said the new AGESA will come out this month.

And hey, BIOS Updates do not really mean getting something better off them. rolleyes.gif

F3 for me is the most perfect BIOS they have released. I see where you both are coming from, but every other board out there got something bad you know. thumb.gif

I have pre-ordered the k5 at 190€, i will resent my k7 to the reseller.
More options/features on other brand compared to gigabyte is a plus.
I have ga-p55-ud4p since 7 years, i am very satisfying with this board, it's for this i choose it.

More options? Maybe true for the Taichi, CH6 and the Titanium.
Will you need those options? I don't think so.
