    Thx for reply !
    Did you flash your bios with this latest modded? What are the improvements and it is stable?

    Thanks

    Tried the F6e beta for Z87X-UD5H and found it less overclockable, can hit 4.7ghz on my 4770k with a 0.1 volt modifier using the F5 release but on this beta it would lock up even with a 0.2 increase.

    Back to the F5 for the time being.

    GA-Z77X-UD5H BIOS: F16c

    Some of the F15 BIOSes do barely qualify as beta versions; they are more like alpha, experimental or preview versions. It was interesting to run them and I really appreciate that "Stasio" keeps making this software available to us. However, I am not sure it was appropriate for Gigabyte to publish some of them on the official support pages without any comments or guidance …

    I have been running the F15r BIOS and it worked rather well on my configuration so I did not bother to restore the last stable (F14) BIOS.

    Nevertheless, now it is time to stop whining, leave F15 behind, and try out the next step the F16c beta.

    Because of the problems with lacking USB-support at boot time, I would have had to crawl under my desk and try to find a free backside port to upload the BIOS with Q-Flash. So I used @BIOS and did the upgrade from Windows, nice and easy but maybe not the recommended method.

    The following cold boot took rather long time to finish but there were no problems to set up the BIOS.

    At last, the USB support is fully enabled and the keyboard and mouse where working as expected thru the hubs. My USB-stick shows up in the BIOS whether it is connected thru the front ports or a hub.

    I have not noticed any problems with the so-called amnesia problem but it may be too early to draw any conclusions.

    The rather long time to cold boot sustained so I did what one always should do when upgrading the BIOS, I cleared the CMOS, loaded optimized defaults, rebooted and entered the settings I need and now the cold boot runs without any hiccups.

    There may be a difference if you measure carefully but the fast boot options do not make me experience any noticeable change. They seem to work stable and maybe with other configurations than mine there is more improvement in the boot time.

    As far as I can see, after two days, this is a nice and stable enough beta BIOS to evaluate if there is any performance gain to be found or to hunt for some extra GHz from the CPU or the DIMMs.

    I must say that I totally agree to these comments.

    Finally a BIOS with functional USB hubs.

    Now if we could get out of the beta era and get a fast boot we would have a very good board!

    For me the 16c BIOS on the UD5H board seemed to cause problems with S3 sleep and the Windows 8. I have the NVidia GTX670 and the latest WHQL drivers for it. When put into S3 sleep it would be fine but resuming from sleep and the monitor would remain in standby.
    This would repeat each time and yet I flashed the BIOS twice and it flashed fine, I did not restore any profile and I even reset everything to the defaults etc.
    Going back to the 15r and it immediately worked fine with Windows 8 resuming back from S3 sleep and the monitor coming out of standby.

    It would be nice to know what has changed with these beta BIOS's (apart from "Improve system compatibility") and the only remaining issue that I have with either of my Z77 boards is the issue where the USB 3 ports will be quite picky depending on what I plug into which port as to whether it will work or not. USB 3 sticks are more widely supported but USB 3 HD's can cause an issue of working or not, especially when using the front ports.

    I think I have the same problem with S3 state... I must try again.

    Seeing as everyone is so eager to jump on Fast Boot… I have a problem with F16c for Z77X-UD5H rev 1.0: after changing ANY setting in UEFI, it will reset to Fast Boot no matter what. And as my videocard doesn't have hybrid vBIOS, I can't use it as it is now.

    You do not need to have UEFI VGA BIOS... You just need to enable VGA support for fast boot.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but you can't do that. When the boot option is Fast Boot or Ultra Fast Boot, you can't choose what type of OpROM is being used, it defaults to UEFI-compatible and you have to have GOP-enabled videocard. Anyway, I've tried to change settings and it doesn't work: it resets on reboot and I still have only beeps and black screen until Windows is up and running.

    Question. If you enable fast boot you really can't access your bios? If want to access your bios you should clear your cmos. This is my problem with fast boot so i ask this question
