    LOL I installed all of those because I won a auction on ebay of 5 Sata dvd drives for 21.00
    Its better than letting them set And a LIGHTSCRIBE dvd is a must have in any computer I own.
    Its about as crazy as me having 7 computers in my office and 5 monitors.
    Between all the computers I have 15 dvd drives!!!! & 12 HD's {:0) & 2 external HD's


    Momma still loves me

    You will love this board !!!!!

    I just got this board last week. I have it all set up, but I'm getting an annoying video problem. During windows install the first time I got major flicker using the DVI port to a 19" LCD monitor. I rebooted and all went fine. Now I get screen flicker along the first few rows of pixels using both DVI and VGA ports. It sometimes goes away after a reboot. I know have the machine hooked up via HDMI to my HDTV and get full screen flicker in windows when waking from S3. To fix I can either reboot, or sometimes just putting to sleep and waking back up will fix it. Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue. I see it was an issue with an earlier GB board with the 780G and seems to be fixed with a BIOS update.

    Thumbs up Re: Anyone have the GA-MA780G-UD3H motherboard?

    Welcome Jon
    Well theres more than one great thing about this is place.
    One of them is the Gigabyte techs are here on the board. And they also have a great support system for customers.
    I am sure you can get this problem resolved. My first thought would be to install a external video card to see if the problems gone. If it still happens then you know its a hardware problem. If it goes away you might have a loose solder joint or something to that effect.
    Welcome to the site and I my self would love to see a picture of your set up.

    Motherboard temperatures are usually in the 29-30 degrees C range when idle and about 35-38 under load. CPU temperatures (Phenom II X4 940) are at 36-38 degrees when idle and 42-44 under load, all on the stock heatsink and fan. The Northbridge chipset runs pretty cool too, somewhere between 37-38 degrees. All temperatures are according to EVEREST except the Northbridge temperature. I used SpeedFan for that. It's quite hot in my room so temperatures would be even lower.

    I didn't have any problems getting the processor recognized as it came with the latest BIOS. Configuring manual timings for my DDR2-1066 RAM was very easy to do as well and I didn't have any problems with that, too.

    The only problem I did have though, is that my 500GB IDE drive was recognized in the BIOS and in Windows XP but it just wouldn't show up in My Computer so I can access it. It was set up as a dynamic drive and it was offline, but unfortunately I couldn't activate it, so, I had to format it. I guess it didn't like the transition from that crappy ASUS board to this new one.
    I have a question? What would you think if I said Speedfan quotes my northbridge or third temp at between 82c and 104c?

    I think it's probably bogus, like an unused port on the monitoring chip.

    My GA-MA78GM-S2H shows 102C for the third temperature.

    bnborg do you think that speedfan works properly on a GA-MA78GM-UD3H , but reads incorrect on a GA-MA78GM-S2H?

    I don't really know, but I think that if you reboot, go into BIOS setup, and then PC Health, and it only shows temperatures for system and CPU, then the third temperature isn't used.

    I don't know either. I will get a thermometer and check into this. That GA-MA780G-UD3H has ultra durable 3 with the 2 OZ copper pcb, that's 2 layers on 12"X12" of pcb, and Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs and the hole board has solid Caps. They claim it will run up to 50˚C cooler. I still never found out the maximum voltage supported in bios for the memory banks. I might be getting one soon.

    I picked up this board couple of weeks ago, along with a AMD Kuma 7750 BE, and Gskill 4gb(2x2gb) 1066. I love the setup, but for some reason, I dont think I am getting the ram set to 1066. I am going into the bios and manually changing the settings that gksill recommends, and the bios says 1066, but when i got into sisoftware sandra it displays as 800. Am I doing something wrong here?

    Another question I have is what settings can you guys recommend so that I can overclock this thing to 3ghz I have a good fan on it right now( didnt even touch the stock hs) its a AC Freezer 64 Pro w AS 5.

    Thanks

    Question Re: Anyone have the GA-MA780G-UD3H motherboard?

    Well the over clocking I might like to know as well.
    My question for you is how does that freezer work?
    I have this thing in the picture and I am betting the stock cooler would work just as well maybe even better. This thing gets hot. About 52C on the cpu.
    Enough to trip the alarms
    Whats yours run at?
    Thanks Mark
