    I also own a 7970 OC made by gigabyte and I flashed the bios from the write protected secondary position to the primary, now bios updating is no longer possible. However, the F72 bios seems to work. Since having BSOD 116 codes with my new Samsung Green 30nm rams, I am running optimized defaults currently with the Hyper X and bios F18.

    All of these questions I ask because I am trouble shooting a BSOD116 that may be related to running Samsung Green 30nm memory in 4x4. It will BSOD, usually at idle, sometimes with load but will pass 15 hours of p95 at max ram and IBT max for 20 loops, aida stress test 12 hours, etc. I have tried the following:
    Try F20c bios.
    Try F20c beta bios.
    Revert back to f18 bios.
    Try stock ram.
    Try very soft timings and speed
    Try very aggressive timings and speed
    Try stock processor
    Stock clock memory
    Overclock memory with stock voltage
    Raise Dram Volt to a variety of settings
    Raise IO and TX dram voltages slightly
    Raise VTT and IMC voltages to 1.0 and .095, 1.1 and 1.095 and 1.2 and 1.195. Respectively.
    Disable all power saving functions C states EIST etc.
    Test with other ram modules like the Hyper X or Patriot that all pass memtest as well. When I buy ram I run memtest on it for atleast 12 to 24 hours.
    Delete/disable the pagefile.
    Restore the pagefile.
    Change the pagefile size.
    Reformat computer.

    System can pass stability tests fine and ram all memtests 24 hours. All the DIMMS show no physical damage (they are very delicate).

    Presently I reformatted the computer, reverted to stock clocks and still got this error so its probably not a pagefile error. Something in my board just is not compatible with this ram.
    Usually the BSOD will occur when the computer is idle.


    Another question: Since reformat my motherboard is displaying 03 code from wake state instead of staying A0. Is this normal? By wake state I mean screen times off. Everything is set to high performance besides monitor time out at 20 minutes, minimum processor state of 20% and USB functions.
    Neither bios is write protected.
    Displaying 03 after resuming from sleep is normal...is that what you meant?

    I tested this version, the big problem for me ,is in strating i can't go in my bios, is frozen but if i start normaly. all usb or sata work normaly in windows. I hope the F8 to stabilize, corrected my problem with usb on MB start and the hdd led too.

    Does anyone know witch bios for the X79-UD7 has the least Vdroop? The F12f and F12e has about 0,04v vdroop.
    So if i had 1,354V idle, it goes down to 1,308V, since this is the numbers Cpu-Z shows. Might have to go back to F11 something. Think it had a little better vdroop controll..

    Using for the most part sins settings from his OC guide for the UD7

    Also another question about this board (GA-Z77X-UD3H):

    The slots 3 and 4 yield higher dual channel performance than the slots 1 and 2 which are recommended for 2 stick operation. Should I use 3 and 4 therefore? I benchmark slightly higher with these on every benchmark, on average, over a series of 10 runs so it is there. I am now attempting to overclock the HyperX black, at 1.6v I am at 2200 MHz 11-11-11-33 1t. Not sure best way to stability test, got about 4 loops into IBT max and fail but I've had things fail IBT max that pass other stuff etc. Gonna run prime overnight 12 hours at 15500 MB I guess.

    Neither of the bios chips are write protected, there just protected by security built in to the motherboard and OS to stop malware writing to them.

    The latest beta for z87x-ud3h (f8h) is good, coming from F7. I used to have some problems with F7 like I can't enter bios and sometimes inside windows my usb devices 'restart' (like getting replugged). These are not happening with latest beta. Also now I have hd res in bios :P Thanks stasio!

    edit: Actually the bios problem still happens.. sometimes I can't enter bios with my G15 keyboard.. the keyboard doesn't even respond to stuff like 'caps lock' until I enter windows. It really pisses me off.

    edit2: Another problem I have, Sleep (not hybrid sleep) is not working on my machine, the display goes black and I can't do anything after that, except pressing the 'restart' button on my case to reboot. I even tried to 'sleep' without my mouse/keyboard plugged in, I set a tool to sleep after 1 minute and I unplugged many devices. Same problem.

    edit3: I was able to make it sleep, but it's kinda a hit & miss thing on this board. Sometimes on wake-up I have to wait 30 seconds until I get a signal to the monitor. Sometimes it works just fine. Sometimes I get stuck and I have to reboot.

    Do any of you with the Z87 UD5H have problems maintaining 100MHz bus speed?
    No matter whether I set Auto or manually set 100, I get 99.77MHz. No matter if F7 or F8 BIOS, same thing.
    I'm thinking it hasn't always been this way, but not really sure when it changed.

    If you have no problems maintaining 100MHZ bus speed, which bios are you using?
    Thanks!

    It's due the Spread spectrum thing they have.. I think Asus motherboards gives the option to disable it as it's totally un-necessary for home users. I'm not sure why Gigabyte is insisting on not giving us the option to disable it. You can try and set your bus to 100.02, this way your cpu+ram will run at stock speed, and you'll see 100 instead of 99.6 inside windows. It's not a solution though, just a workaround.

    Never had this problem with any other Gigabyte boards.....and I'm pretty sure it's a recent thing with this one. I think something, somewhere has changed since the same overclock settings I've been using are now harder to boot with.
    But anyway, I tried setting 100.02 but it didn't want to boot.....I don't know if it's just being cranky today or what.

    Clear cmos, works for me, g1.assassin2 does the same thing.
