    What VCCSA (System Agent Voltage) are you using? You may need to bump it up a bit to 1.20 - 1.22 V

    I tried various combinations to no avail. 1.25 vccsa and 1.2 vccio. With even voltages of all the way up to 1.35v on the dram despite it is rated 1.2, but no matter what voltages it would always be unstable.

    However, against all odds I seem to have stumbled upon something that works. I set the XMP profile, left everything on auto (voltages, timings, mem boot mode) and set memory enhancement mode to performance, early boot fclk 1ghz, and believe it or not it's been booting consistently with this setting (as opposed to normal, or even enhance stability!). Where it was previously giving me non-posts, overclock failed and boot loops...

    I'm still waiting for more loops of memtest to finish however. I will update once I have more info. I rebooted a few times in between tests (both soft reboots and cold starts) to see if it was just "luck", but it's been consistently booting as well as passing the point where it would previously fail memtest early on.

    Successfully passed 2 single loops now, which take around 2:45hrs, Hoping for the best, since I've just more or less wasted a whole weekend tinkering with this crap.

    However what I can conclude from this is that XMP doesn't quite work as it should still on F6, because memory enhancement "normal" is less stable than "enhance performance", for me which is just really strange and doesn't make a lot of sense.

    Interesting find, you'd think that "enhance performance" would tighten the timings and make the system less stable or able to boot.

    Smile Re: GIGABYTE Latest Beta BIOS

    Hello all ,
    Im in need of a little help please , i was messing about in my main bios with my ram settings and selected the enhanced performance the hit f10 to save , however the pc wouldn't boot and gave error code 55,after two more times my backup bios has kicked in as it was version f5 so this is how i know it's the backup , so i flashed this to f7 and all is good , but now i'm using the backup bios all the time and need to reflash the main with the backup bios .

    I can see on the first page here it say to hit Backup BIOS reflash: ALT+F12 - AWARD BIOS ALT+F10 - UEFI BIOS . but i'm scared that it may flash the main to the backup and i need the backup to main which is the other way around , im scared that i would end up flashing the bad bios (main) to the bios im using which is that backup .

    cheers for any help with this



    Im using the gaming 7 skylake motherboard




    PS i've just read a post that says the board will automatically re-flash the main bios from the backup on it next boot ,, can anyone confirm this is how it works when the board is in dual bios mode ....... thanks.



    PPS quick update after looking at the manual, the board does indeed copy the backup to the main bios so when i thought i was in the back up bios i wasn't, it was the main bios that had been copied from the backup hence the f5 version ,,,,,,,,,,,,, confusing at first but not now :) so alls good again . i was use to my old board that had the same switch but you could select which bios u wanted ,as with this board you cant your in the main bios all the time and the backup is automatically flashed to the main in the event of such problems i had ,,, i'm sure this is how it works , so maybe this will help someone out one day ....

    Does anyone know if the GA-Z97X-UD5H - F11b BIOS fixes an issue where the board reboots after waking from sleep?

    Has anyone tried the f11b on the GA-Z97X-UD5H? How stable is it?

    Sorry for my ignorance, but is it possible to revert to the released BIOS if I need to after installing the F11b BIOS?

    Not sure what all it fixes, but it's been working great for me personally. I actually updated the bios even further with the latest modules using UBU and have had no issues yet.

    You might wanna try enabling 'Power Loading' in the bios to see if it resolves the reboot after wake from sleep issue.

    GA-Z97X-SOC Force - F9b BIOS is giving me boot loops as soon as I change BIOS settings away from optimized defaults, on a Core i7-5775C.

    The loop occurs just as Windows attempts to start, which results in some attempts of the boot triggering Windows Automatic Repair to engage (during which the system will also soft-reset, continuing the boot loop).

    Additional problem: Reverting BIOS back to F8 using motherboard QFlash does not fix the boot loops.

    Probably wrong setting applied.
    Clear_CMOS maybe help.
    So far with many users no problem.

    CLR_CMOS button used, then updated to F9b again. The boot loops continue. Even loading optimized defaults after changing BIOS settings does not solve the boot loops, so then CLR_CMOS must be used again to hard-reset BIOS settings to default.

    I ran a CHKDSK on my Windows installation (C:\) and everything appears to be OK. Notably, I also tried booting Windows 10 media creation tool from USB, and I triggered the same reset at the beginning of its boot.

    In all cases (both in BIOS F9b and after reverting to F8) I am able to slowly change minor BIOS settings like changing fan speed and enabling XMP for my RAM, but it takes 1-2 extra boot loop attempts for the boot to be successful. Other overclocking features do not appear to boot with much chance of success. Before taking the steps to change BIOS to F9b, I had a fully overclocked setup with CPU at 4.2GHz and various voltage setting changes.

    Ok, I'll give the power loading a try. If that doesn't. Work, I'll try the beta BIOS. thanks.
