PainKiller89 Hi Guys. What is the latest bios version for the motherboard? I am also having an issue with a clean install of windows 10. When I do a clean install of windows 10 boot times are almost up to a minute. Any ideas?

I recently wanted to do a clean install of windows 10 1803 build. For some weird reason When doing a clean install, the boot time is almost to a minute. When doing the install I disabled CSM in the BIOS and changed UEFI mode to other OS instead of windows UEFI and boot time is just too slow. With my previous windows, 10 backed up image which the boot time is less than 10 seconds. Any ideas? I am running z77 with i7 3770k 16Gb of ram. Please help

CoreyL4 Does 2400mhz ram not work with z77?

[email protected] BUMP.. I talked to a friend and it turns out that I don't need to do anything and leave it as it is. Image Tearing MIGHT be related to video card drivers. I may consider a new different monitor since my monitor is made for movies and it has 4ms. Perhaps I'll have a difference if I had a different one. The upgrade plans will have to be on hold. May try Ryzen someday.

[email protected] I ran this overclocked by auto settings and I never messed with voltages. Here is my CPUID.
Did I do anything wrong? I need honest answers. I also googled information on what other people's CPUID looks like and this came up


(Why are his volts different than mine?) Including the multiplier, it shows 16-63? Why isn't it the same as the others? Is it because I am not tweaking voltages? Can someone help me out here and educate me on this part so I can understand what's going on?

I have image tearing now in most games but rarely on a few. I had to enable VSYNC and it works fine but sometimes I still catch image tearing when if it's on. So i tried the route via Nvidia Control Panel. Maybe I have a bad video card? Bad DVI or I need a new monitor? A lot of questions need to be answered. I still think it's probably because I have a powerful video card that is slightly bottlenecking my CPU. However, I saw this video.

He has a 1440hz monitor. I am baffled. However, that would LOWER more FPS. I'm just baffled how he runs just fine. Something is wrong. Maybe it's my SSD? I am using 1504 bios update not the newest one because what everyone says is that don't fix what is broken. I never had motherboard problems. I like 1080p but always wanted to go 1440hz but I rather not because I know there will be fps drops.


These are my current specs at the moment
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060-6GB SSC version-
Hydro Series™ H100i v2 Extreme (replaced and installed on Mar 5, 2018)
SSD: Samsung 830 256GB -
HDD: WD Black 1TB (2010) -
HDD: WD Blue 500GB (2010) -
RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 C9 4x4GB
BENQ 1920X1080
EVGA 860 BQ Power Supply

These are my idle temps. My load temps never go over 45c or 54c and that's it.

[email protected] I know this is pointless but I have been running this PC for more than 6 years and this motherboard has been running solid very well. However, I noticed the bios has never been updated at all. From experience, I have learned that if your system runs great and there are no problems you don't need to update bios? Is it really that recommended or should I leave it alone? I don't wanna brick my motherboard anyway. If I were to update my bios what kind of stabilization does it do? Another question, what is that bios button behind the motherboard IO shield. Is it a flashback button? Educate me my PC friends!

7ha7a5ian Good Evening,

Is anyone having issues running a 3770K in 4k? Rise of the Tomb Raider shows GPU and CPU usage is all over the place in spots and that's normally signs of bottleneck.

Thanks, 7ha7as1an

Current Rig:
i7 3770K @ 4.8 GHz - 1.45V
Asus Sabertooth Z77
16 GB GDDR3 @ 1800MHz
2 EVGA GTX 1080 Hybrids in SLi
Corsair AX850 PSU

I'm having an issue with 1) my PC crashing (to a worthless Blue Screen that only says hardware error) and 2) my WiFi getting extremely slow after the PC crashes (speedtest runs at 2.5 Mbps when it normally runs at 50Mbps).  It's a chicken and egg dilemma:  is the WiFi partially crashing causing my PC to crash or is it my PC crashing causing my WiFi to crash.  My PC does not have WiFi capability (but my phone and my wife's laptop do) and is connected via Ethernet to my wireless router.  When I check the HDDs for SMART issues, it says my drives are all OK, as is the Samsung SSD (according to Samsung Magician)

My system:
  • Windows 10 Home x64
  • Sabertooth Z77
  • i7-3770K @4.2 MHz
  • 16GB RAM (@XMP1)
  • Samsung 840 EVO (250GB) SSD - boot drive
  • 1x WD Black 2TB HDD (My Documents)
  • 2x HGST 4TB HDD (data storage)
  • 1x Samsung 1TB HDD (data storage)

Any ideas how to troubleshoot this?  And, why would my PC crashing take down my WiFi (since it is not connected via WiFi) OR why would my WiFi crashing cause my PC to Blue Screen?



Sounds like a bad NIC in your PC that slowly loses it's mind and blasts the router with packets leading to the slowdown.

So: 1. Does your Wifi still slow without your PC connected via ethernet to the router? If yes, diagnose router.

2. Is this random, or possibly connected to network traffic load? i.e. does this happen if you are streaming video, downloading a game, etc. May want to check your ethernet wire ends, could be a bad connection.

3. The ever cliche "drivers". Maybe the NIC installed Windows drivers. Check those.

4. Possible "phantom" adaptors in the control panel. Saw that once, weird.

5. Dont do any troubleshooting, go buy or order a PCIe gig NIC and a new ethernet cable(or one you know is good.) Install and connect.

6. If that doesnt solve the issue, it is likely a router issue. Ethernet side is slowly dying and eventually bringing the router down.
