    No, it is just hwmonitor. Hwinfo64 shows everything fine along with most of the other programs. The vcore and temps show the same and it's just easier to make a screen grab with hwmonitor.

    3) Turbo Bost parameters is set x44 (for 1,2,3 and 4 active cores). In F20 on Z170X Gaming 7 turbo boost do not work correctly and all cores go up to the higher multiplier. ie. if you set x44, x42, x42, x42 all cores go up to x44 at the same time (you can test this with a benchmark like the one provided by CPU-Z). This is partially fixed (works only for some multiplier value) on some other Gigabyte mb. I hope that this will be fixed on Z170X Gaming 7, too.

    EDIT: Load Line Calibration (LLC) is set to Normal.
    Thanks for the specifics. Much appreciated.

    I'm away from my computer this week, but I'll give it a try on the weekend.

    Hi all. I think I'm in trouble now after upgrading my GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0) motherboard bios from F7 to the latest F20.

    Before the update, I had RAID enabled for SATA mode (even though I had no raid volumes except Intel's SSD caching). However, after the upgrade, my system would not boot. This was expected because I always know to go in and change the SATA mode in fresh bios from AHCI to RAID. This time, RAID IS NOT AN OPTION anymore. Now all I see is AHCI and Intel RTS Premium. When I changed it to Intel, it still would not boot to OS. Does anyone know what's going on and or if there is another option I should look for in this new bios to get it to work?

    Nw that I look at past posts on this latest bios, I get the feeling that I should start looking for a strategy to revert to older bios... (

    I hope someone here can help you. I have no raid experience myself but I have gone through the bios and noticed an EZ RAID option and only have achi and intel rst premium options. I'm pretty sure that intel rst is just an intel rapid storage mode. To be clear the ez raid function is not bundled with those options. Have you tried that or know what it does? When I select that it tells me I need to have a raid setup and it will require a reboot. I couldn't go beyond that since I don't have a raid setup but maybe that will help you. If you have any doubts with it please don't use it. I would hate to hear it erased your data or something.

    Can we have some info on this latest release please?
    I would like to help with testing, but am not sure what differences in behaviour I should be looking for.

    Thanks for your feedback. I did try the EZ Raid but its just a utility to set up a new raid configuration from BIOS. However, I did figure out what the issue is and was able to log in fine) It turns out that you do need to enable "Intel RSt Premium" now instead of Raid but you need to DISABLE the "Aggressive LPM support" option right under it since it defaults to Enabled. I don't know whats its for but it was prevent me from booting into OS.

    Joking aside, thanks for the belated reply.

    As to the reason I asked? No, no, no offense whatsoever? I gave 350bucks so I could do one thing. Just one thing :)
    Press the 'CPU Upgrade' button and OC my i7 6900k. Except what do you know, there is no i7 6900k listed at all! And never mind Gigabyte's saying it is "supported" with F22. Other mobos, of said same range, -do- offer this.

    Sad puppy. Sincerely hoping this gets fixed.
    Pride, honour and purity.

    Edit:

    Found the answer. Must edit intel NIC MAC address. Did that. One thing I'm confused about, is that stasio says go into Q-FLASH by holding END and flash from there but the FPT process recommendation is to just boot from the stick and let it flash with the fpt.exe.

    Those of you that rolled back your BIOS from F20, which method did you use?



    Original:

    Damn it. Upgraded the Gaming 7 from F7 to F20 because I thought official BIOS that were posted on the website for this motherboard would be SAFE for this motherboard, but then I find this thread.

    Damn it Gigabyte, you make it hard to love you sometimes.


    Either the search is failing me too or nobody posted instructions on how to get back to F7/F8, but do you guys know if its possible?
