    Default GA-Z68X-ud5-B3 no post with pci card(s) installed

    Mobo GA-Z68X-UD5-B3, CPU 2600k. 16 GB corsair vengance 9-9-9-24, EVGA GTX550Ti, WD HD 1TB caviar black, Pure Power 680W PS, OptiarcDVD, Windows 7

    Bios f7 optimized defaults
    Will boot with PCI UAD card installed. Will not boot with Pro tools HD pci card or adaptec AUA-3020 fire wire/usb pci card. I have tried both pci slots with the fire wire/ usb pci card. The Avid HD core Digidesign can only fit in the lower slot.
    The Avid HDcore pci card is FAB 9410-28574-00 REV F ASY 915028574-00 REV L
    The board will not post with the adaptec AUA 3020 Firewire/USB PCI card P/N 2030800 REV A 0432, or the Avid HDcore PCI card.

    Please help

    Using this motherboard with a Vantech UGT-IS100R SATA II 300 IDE/PATA PCI-E card will not allow me to get into the BIOS. It hangs with a blinking cursor after the Vantec card displays the devices attached to it. The system will boot properly if you don't try to access the system BIOS and the system runs stable with the card installed. Running TouchBIOS works normally in Windows. This happens with F2, F3, and F4 bios. I have tried some additional PCie and PCI SATA expansion cards and with the Intel Raid bios active it seem booting is always handed off the the expansion card instead of what's connected to the motherboard SATA ports. I had this same issue with an older Gigabyte board. I need a few more SATA ports and I don't want to boot from an expansion card and loose the ability to use Smart Response. I can live with the Vantech card but would prefer a different solution. I'm hoping this can be fixed with a bios update so I don't have to look for another motherboard.


    As an update, I have resolved this issue by updating to the F5d BIOS. I can now get to the system BIOS properly. I was also having very long delays trying to boot from a CD/DVD drive which turned out to be the CD/DVD Boot Option (EFI) set to Auto. I set this to disabled and I can now boot from optical drives properly. There seems to be no resolution for using other PCie or PCI SATA expansion cards as they will interfere with the operation of the Intel RAID BIOS. I still wish I had a few more SATA ports but I'll live with this configuration until I find a more flexible solution. Perhaps a port replicator board would work with the onboard Marvell controller...

    Hi,

    CPU AMD|ATH II X3 455 3.3G AM3 RT
    CASE ROSEWILL|CHALLENGER RT
    Motherboard GIGABYTE | GA-78LMT-S2P R
    VGA SAPPHIRE Radeon HD6870
    PSU ANTEC| 520W HCG-520 RTL
    MEMORY 2Gx2|GSKILL F3-10666CL9D-4GBNS
    HD 500G|WD SATAIII
    DVD BRN ASUS | DRW

    I am building a new computer for the first time. I watched videos and read tutorials and it appears the connections are good. All components seem to run fine on first power up. I get stuck at "verifying dmi data." I power down, disconnect sata HDD, and reboot. Windows setup begins but I can't use my ps2 keyboard when asked to hit enter to continue setup. Unplugging keyboard and reinserting, I see the keyboard leds briefly flash.

    What am I missing? I'll be more than happy to provide more info.

    Thanks.

    @bosco40
    What is the board revision(printed in the corner near PCI slot I/O panel side) and BIOS version (F9 in main BIOS screen, main BIOS ves.)?
    Ahat frequency does the memory defalt to?

    Hi!

    Ok i need a little help guys. I'd like to upgrade my CPU so my question is:
    - does the GA-945GCM-S2C motherboard support Intel E5800 CPU?

    Found a list of supported CPUs here, but E5800 is not listed here at all (not even as unsupported).
    Does it mean its NOT supported, so theres no way to use this CPU with this board, or just not tested thus not listed here.

    (btw the funny thing is, there are many FSB>800Mhz CPUs listed as supported, yet the Intel 945GC chipset only supports FSB up to 800Mhz... how come?)

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Gigabyte Support,

    I need help, I would like to know the top 5 major differences between the Dell Optiplex Gx150 and the new Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD7-B3.

    The Gx150 came out in 2001 and the Z68 in 2011 so I know there are vast differences but its for a college report and there asking for simiarlities and differences.
    really appreciate your help.

    Thanks Ruthie

    You are correct, the differences are quite major!

    We can't do your homework for you though, your best bet is to start looking at the specifications/features of each (The Z68X-UD7-B3 is just a motherboard, the GX150 is a complete system, so not sure how you are supposed to compare?)

    2600K
    nVidia GTX 560Ti
    Gigabyte Z68A-D3H-B3 rev. 1 BIOS F10
    8GB(2x4GB) G.Skill Sniper DDR3 1600 1.5v
    500w Antec Earthwatts PSU
    640GB WD HDD



    Hello Gigabyte Tech Support!

    I updated my BIOS to version F10 using QFlash. I think I did everything right:

    Save BIOS file to thumb drive
    Restart computer
    Enter QFlash
    Disable "Keep DMI data"
    Load new BIOS file from thumb drive and wait and then reset
    Load optimized defaults and reboot
    Finally change settings to what they were before


    I am having an issue with the multiplier. It is set at 38 by default for some reason and not 34 like it should be. When I try to change it to 34 it instantly reverts back to 38 and will not let me change it no matter what I try! I have tried enabling and disabling EIST, changing performance modes(standard, turbo, extreme), and clearing the CMOS.

    Clearing the CMOS actually worked for a few minutes until I enabled the XMP profile on my memory and the FSB went from 1333 to 1600 and it automatically bumped the multiplier from 34 to 38 again which put me right where I left off. I can set the multiplier higher just not lower than 38. Seeing as 38 is the limit for Turbo Boost(at stock clock) it seems like the BIOS version F10 has somehow disabled the ability for my 2600K to use this feature. When I view the system specs under load all four cores are peaking at 3.8Ghz and at idle they settle to 1.6Ghz. This means that Intel Speedstep IS working but Turbo Boost is not because all four cores should not be at 3.8Ghz at the same time, only one.


    Help!

    Go back to the older BIOS for now if that is an issue for you, I'm sure they will be notified of the BIOS bug and fix it soon - thanks for your report

    I called Gigabyte and they had a guy test a D3H-B3 and he had the same results as me. However, he told me that it is normal


    I also called Intel and they also told me that if your run RAM at 1600Mhz with a Sandy Bridge CPU that the clock ratio tries to match the RAM in terms of bandwidth. Why doesn't this happen with BIOS version F5 and under then? Nobody has any answers.



    Looks like I'll stick with F5 for now.
