Use a 300WM for that...Of course, I prefer skeet, but I cant think of a good way to launch a G1.Assassin2 from the high house to blast it out of the sky! -smile-

    OT: I have to admit that some of the shows are pretty cool, and that even though I've been out of the military for 20 years, I've done a lot of the same stuff that mythbusters have. "You know, have have this body armor sitting around that no one's claimed for 2 years... let's see what it stops?!" -grin- It's also how I destroy all of the old hard drives I've got! -Over here we are having an issue of the absence of logic: about 40% of the population have never been trained in the use of firearms... so people think the movies are real. ...and our politicians, like most, don't let the facts get in the way: in 2011 out of 213,000,000 people we had >350 people killed with civilian copies of military firearms [that means semiautomatic for the US]; We should pass laws that are ineffective because it makes people somehow feel good? Oh boy. Part of out problem is that we have one group of conservatives that include a number of people that don't help out cause, and then we've got a bunch of socialist [who don't want to admit that's what they really are] that also aren't helping anything. Leaving the level headed middle of the road types to not be able to get anything done. Bother.

    On Topic:

    I got a message from this thread about a Z77-UP5 by arrow0309 and that the RAM he had did not over clock in the board.

    I recently picked up a ~$500 set of "CORSAIR DOMINATOR GT 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 15000) Desktop Memory Model CMT32GX3M4X1866C9."

    Now, these are supposed to be 4 matched sticks for a quad memory configuration. The timings for SPD use were perfectly normal. At XMP profile wasn't outrageous either, in fact it was the same as the 16GB set from Crucial that I pulled out.

    Ran MemTest86+ 4.20 for 2 passed at 1866MHz... TONS of errors... Ran it at SPD speeds, STILL got errors... Basically, for whatever reason, the board did not like that RAM. Given that it didn't run properly at 1333MHz, I have to figure it was less about the motherboard and more about the RAM.

    I sent it back and got "Crucial Ballistix Tactical 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT4K8G3D1608ET3LX0," (for half the price) and at ANY speed it seems to work without an issue. The XMP profile only goes to 1600MHz, so if you want to do 1866MHz, you need to test... but it runs at 1600Mhz and 1.35v. The second XMP profile are the sames timings at 1.5v. I ran a 48 burn-in test using MemTest86+ 4.20, and didn't have a single issue at 1.35v and 1600MHz. I was able to clock it at 1866MHz and 1.5v, and it worked perfectly fine. I would probably use the DIMM fans on the RAM if it's that important to have it at 1866Mhz. However, I really don't see huge performance increases unless the CPU is running at 4+ GHZ, so I leave it at 1600MHz.

    I have a BIOS problem with my GA-Q77M-D2H board.
    According to Intel, the RAID option ROM part of the Gigabyte BIOS is reporting the wrong feature set and therefore it's not possible to perform array expansion through Intel RST.

    Do you have any info on how (with what "configuration") the RAID option ROM is integrated into Gigabyte BIOSes?
    I have tried both F1 and F2 versions of the Q77M BIOS but no luck. Are there any other versions I can try that may do different things with the RAID option ROM?

    ^In your board BIOS F2 is included:

    Yes, this is the RAID BIOS version I see when booting. But according to Intel Support the interesting factor is how this BIOS has been "customized" to report what features it supports. Apparently my F2 BIOS doesn't report that RAID supports capacity expansion, contrary to what is supported by the Q77 chipset on the board...

    Do you have any information on the customization or configuration of the RAID BIOS?
    Or from what source you are getting it when building your BIOSes?
    Could the RAID BIOS for Q77M have been mixed up with another chipset that doesn't support the same features?

    Thanks :-)

    Why can't I enable some RAID function?
    Due to the limitation of PC structure, the capacity of shadow memory is fixed. If the shadow memory is not enough, some of the RAID controllers will be inactive.

    This doesn't sound like the issue I'm having.

    Do you have any info on the questions I asked in my previous post? :

    Or from what source you are getting it when building your BIOSes?
    Could the RAID BIOS for Q77M have been mixed up with another chipset that doesn't support the same features?

    When a U1c is released, one of you guys test it first, ok? ;)
    Well, this is just fantastic. So my main BIOS got corrupted while booting. The board switches to the backup BIOS, which is the faulty UEFI BIOS, that was obviously not reflashed while the board was RMA'ed. Interestingly I now get a UEFI boot screen, but instead of booting the board tries to reflash the main BIOS and crashes/resets when it gets to 5%.

    Long story short - board is now out of order again.

    I don't think I'm going to RMA it a second time. Shipping it was fairly expensive and I was without it for 3-4 weeks. I'm just gonna cut my losses and get another board, which will almost certainly not be a Gigabyte, contrary to what I have earlier said.

    Gutted.
