After setting the "Initial Display Output" to IGFX instead of PCIe 1, I get no signal whatsoever from the integrated graphics. I know it works because it was working earlier today using BIOS F6h. So perhaps I have just done something wrong and a reflash will help.

    UPDATE: Yeah OK, never mind. I reflashed F6 again and loaded optimized defaults on the first boot and voila, the integrated graphics options are back. That is really weird! Fan speeds look right as well. Thanks for helping me out. Feel a bit embarrassed as my problems seem to have been solved so simply.

    BTW I thought when you used QFlash to update the BIOS, it would update both the main and the backup BIOS? (And thus they would always be the same version). Is there something special I have to do to flash the backup BIOS or are both BIOSes flashed together?
    IMPORTANT
    Use at your own risk:

    Backup BIOS reflash:
    ALT+F12 - AWARD BIOS
    ALT+F10 - UEFI BIOS

    (First page of this thread)

    Personally I use a stable BIOS that I know works Always ...then atl+f10 ...and I don't touch the backup BIOS again ...never...like...never ever. But that's just me

    ADD: I forgot to mention to put your igfx at "Enable" not just "Auto" if you want it really enabled. When I want to use Virtu MVP, I use the PEG and set the "Initial Dislpay Output "at PEG I have to put the igfx at "Enable" not just "Auto" to use Lucid Virtu MVP because otherwise its not working and the igfx don't appear in Device Manager.

    Excuse the novice question, as I haven't received my board yet.

    I presume 'Loading Optimized Settings' resets all settings back to factory default. Is there a way to first save BIOS settings (that you deem stable already) w/c can load back after flashing a new bios FW?

    Can you pls explain a bit more what you mean?

    EDIT: so you install the new FW into backup too. Don't you test first the newly loaded FW into the main before overwriting your backup?

    Yes,you can save any setting,before you flash BIOS......to USB flash drive formated to FAT32.

    Backup BIOS reflash:
    ALT+F12 - AWARD BIOS
    ALT+F10 - UEFI BIOS

    This is relevant for boards without BIOS switch.
    As GB boards has 2 BIOS chip,you can flash only 1 in time.

    Thanks stasio, as always!

    Can you please confirm if this would be the procedure for GB boards w/ DUAL BIOS (like what I plan to get -z87x-ud3h):
    1. Flash new FW to the main bios, Load optimize settings, restart PC, then test.
    2. If ok, turn off PC, move bios switch to backup BIOS.
    3. Power on, then flash new FW to the backup bios, then power off.
    4. Move switch back to main, then power on.

    Is this correct?

    Actually, in my BIOS... using it in "Advanced mode" not "3D mode" ...in the "Save and Exit" tab there is a "save profile" "load profile".
    As Stasio, mentioned, you can save it on a USB Pen drive or in the BIOS itself. Hope I got it right for your board

    In the past it has been strictly advised not to load a profile from a different version bios as some settings may not be compatible or could harm settings in the different bios version.

    Not sure if that has change with z87 or not but still not something I not recommend.

    Yep...my bad...I forgot to mention: "only for the same bios version"


    P.S. On a personal note ...I will not use it at all since it takes about 5 min. to reconfigure BIOS after loading Optimize settings.
    It may be useful I guess ...somehow...because otherwise it will not be there

    I have all my main settings saved on my phone as pic of bios screen. (voltage settings....RAM..timing..etc) Its true when using or loading a profile from a diff version bios sometimes don't work so its better to manually tap em in. Its good that Z87 comes with Dual bios disable switch which Z77 don't
