    Can you look for Revision.......bottom left side of board.
    Has been similar case arround 2-3 years ago.
    If is Rev.0.1 or 0.2 ,you have probably installed 2 x 64 Mbit flash BIOS chips on board,
    which support only 8MB BIOS size.

    Also switch to Backup BIOS (with switch) and see if is same BIOS F1g.

    It is Rev 2.0, and backup bios has same F1g.

    Ok ,you can try this:
    stay with switch in Backup BIOS, other switch (SB) set to "Single BIOS".
    Rename BIOS F5a to bios.bin......use FPT-Win64- Z87 to flash
    in Windows OS or FPT_DOS- Z87 to flash in DOS with
    bootable USB.
    Place "bios.bin" in same folder and try to flash.

    Edit:
    If somehow cann't flash, try with FPT-Win32/64- Z97 in Windows mode.

    Question Re: Welcome to GIGABYTE Technical Support!

    Hello Mr.Tweek, Stasio and all others

    I have a new gigabyte Z170X gaming 7 (rev 1.0) and a 6700 non k that i whant to overclock, i have a water cooling kit on order.
    I have Win 10 Pro 64 bits in french
    I have not overclocked the cpu yet
    I tried with regular 2133 ram and it's ok, but a gskill overclockable f4-3000c15d-16gtz doesn't work, it keeps rebooting

    i read a lot and got a bit mixt up.

    I think i make a booboo updating to F20D even if I have a Skylark (it must also have updated the CPU code to non overcklable version ? )

    the board bios is updated to f20d, and it works fine with my used hyunday 2133 cas 15 ram, but not with my new gskill f4-3000c15d-16gtz 2*8 gig 3000 cas 15, that's why i updated to the newest bios i could fine. But it keeps rebooting. I returned it to newegg.ca and there are sending me a new kit.

    I've read some more and downloaded UBU 1.65 and added the f20d BIOS file, but I don't understand how to use it. Do I just update (or downgrade ) the cpu code to 74 (using option 7) so that a unlock bios (like ver F7A) will work ? DO I modify something else ?

    So please what should I do now ?
    · Use UBU (to install version 74) ?
    · Usde UBU to modify something else ?
    · Downgrade to BIOS F7A (with FTP DOS ?) once I have cpu code 74 ?
    · Will that BIOS work with overclocked ram ?
    · der8auer says to stay below 2800Mhz for the Ram in his GIGABYTE Z170 Non-K Overclocking Guide

    o But that date from january second, but no newer BIOS then F7A will overclock non K cpu on Gigabyte z170X gaming 7 ?

    Merci d’avance

    Exclamation Re: Welcome to GIGABYTE Technical Support!

    Thanks Stasio but...

    I downloaded the bios file 8o modified and renamed it

    I downloaded the efiflash 062 modified

    I used Rufus 2.11 to make a boot usb

    I flashed from DOS on a reboot and the new bios worked correctly at stock speed. I tested it a day

    When I tried to overclock my 6700 non K cpu following Der8auer gigabyte non k overclocking guide to cpu ration 34, bclk 133, ram at 2128mhz,voltage line calibration at high and cpu core voltage at 1.325 and saved that to the cmos, the computer tok a long time to reboot and used the backup bios GRRRR

    So now I have F7 BIOS, I looked on the web for info, but not much on how the dual bios from the z170x gaming 7 rev 1.0 works.

    What do I do now ???

    thanks in advance for your help

    Arrow Re: Welcome to GIGABYTE Technical Support!

    OK I was able to boot aFTER UNPLUGING THE POWER.

    I got bios f8o back.

    I'm trying to overclock , but more gradually.
    It does not seem to work to well.

    I'm using 1.325 v is it too much or not enough ?

    I'M using my hyunday regular RAm that I run at 2126 by changing the ratio.


    Intel microcode info tells me that I have cpu microcode 74, it is the last overclok version I think. So I don't need to use UBUI to get to 74 ? Is there another utility to know my current microcode version ?
