    Well i don't care about accessing bios for now and i'm pretty sure to get a working 100 bus it will do the same anyway so its either have 99.77 bus or a non accessible bios. I'll just wait for new beta and give that a go.

    stasio, sorry to bother you again before you contact to Gigabyte.
    I've just tried to use MMTools to replace U1B's "x1x4Switch" module with the one from U1A. Now I'm able to use PCIEX1 with my USB3.0 card. Fast Boot issue is also solved with this modification. Maybe you could report to them about this.

    Trying to update My GA-X79-UP4 to F4b..
    Hi after my F3x debacle, I wish to try F4b.
    Hopefully its compatible with my Intel Smart ResponseTechnology setup, like F3u and prior.
    <o:p></o:p>
    But there is no way I can install this version.

    • Q-Flas in Bios F3u (and also in F3x) is outdated;
    • @Bios version 2.28-B12.0723.1 is outdated (Run as Administrator, Iget the error right after selecting the F4b file);
    • And Efiflash (version V0.36 date 08-07-2012) is outdated?? <o:p></o:p>

    So I’m out of options…
    How to install this Bios?<o:p></o:p>

    @NLW: Just curious, why are you so determined to flash with @BIOS or QFlash? I don't think I ever used those on my X79-UD5....

    F3 and F4b are both missing tRC in Advanced Timings section.

    F3 and F4b would not apply my changes to Command Rate, selecting 2T persists through a reboot, but is not actually set.

    F3 and F4b are missing VRM Phase Control.

    F4b is no longer able to automatically control CPU fan by voltage. If voltage is explicitly set, it works, but a setting of Auto results in full speed.

    This is all I found in my short time testing. For me missing tRC and inability to set CR are showstoppers, so as I said, I am back to F3u mod for now.

    Seems GA-X79-UP4 F4b is borked in quite a few ways and is not advised to update to it.

    Edit: I would suggest The GA-X79-UP4 BIOS F3u mod with The GbE v1.5 update.

    I always Update the Bios with Q-Flash.<o:p></o:p>Easy and never had any problems with it.

    Until Version F3x. I had to use @Bios. (With my fingers crossed ;).
    And yesterday, I did make a USB bootable for Efiflash (a journeyin itself).
    Because Q-Flash and @Bios where outdated.
    That’s Why..

    NLW: Flashing tools are not the best choice. Simply because you got an OS and tons of other software to potentially interfere, not to mention potential system instability.

    Just use the flasher in your BIOS setup....but I guess you might not even know that flasher exists?

    You should ALWAYS use q-flash to update the bios except for when Gigabyte updates q-flash then you need to flash with @bios. IF and when you go to flash with @bios please make sure you download the latest version from here @BIOS (X79) v.2.23 B12.0217.1 for x79 users. Gigabyte site might list a out dated version.

    I have never used Q-flash, only @BIOS with no problems. I am a little confused what the problems are with the current @BIOS. During a phone conversation with a GB tech about bios flashing I was told to use @BIOS. I specifically mentioned the reported problems with it and was told as long as the bios file is downloaded in advance instead of using the auto download feature it is the recommended and superior method. Asked what method the tech uses on his personal machines the answer was @BIOS.

    Why is GB recommending a program with so many negative reports when they themselves support and include an alternative? Especially when they have to end up dealing with the returned bricked MB's and or the resulting bad publicity?
