    Default Darkje's GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 build.

    Hi everyone,

    I got this board few weeks ago, and in the process of setting things up I made some observations I would like to discuss and also some questions came up, that I plan to ask along the way.

    First the hardware used:
    - Z68X-UD3H-B3(rev 1.3), bios F11j
    - I5-2500K, cooled by scythe mugen2 rev.b with 1500rpm pwm-fan on cpufan header.
    - 8G(2x4G) Corsair Vengeance LP CML8GX3M2A1600C9W,Low profile/Low voltage, DDR1600/C9-1.35v. Slots 1&2.
    - Seasonic M12D SS850-EM , 850W Semi-Modular PSU with 80A at 12V.
    - 2x EVGA GeForce GTX285-1GB in SLi, 4x 6pin power and bridge connected.[PCIEX_16 and PCIEX_8]
    - Hauppauge HVR2200 PCIE 1x tv-tuner card.[PCIEX1_3]
    - Intel controller in raid mode.
    - 2x WD 500G blacks in raid0 on intel port 0-1.
    - 1x WD 1000G black on intel port 2.
    - 1x OCZ Vertex2 (32nm) on intel port 3.
    - 1x Optiarc DVDRW on intel port 4.
    - 1x Samsung 500G on marvell port 0.
    - 24" LCD monitor @ Geforce 0, lower HDMI port.
    - 17" LCD monitor @ Geforce 0, upper HDMI port.
    - 19" LCD TV @ intel/onboard HDMI.
    - 4ch analoge speakers, cambridge dtt set.
    - internal spdif header connected to Geforce 0.
    - front usb connected.
    - front ac97 connected.
    - front cardreader (usb) connected.
    - rear 4x usb bracket.
    - ms media keyboard, ms comfort mouse. usb, wired.

    I installed it my usual way:
    - Load bios defaults, save and exit.
    Enter bios and set:
    - memory to xmp1, enhance cpu=n
    - disable boot logo
    - disable orom splash
    - enable intel raid
    - disable com
    - enable hpet 64
    - set fan slope to 2.50
    - set fan control to pwm
    - save and exit
    Enter bios and save this profile as my defaults.

    - boot w7(raid0)
    - ready an usbstick with w7sp1 image
    - remove the current partion from the ssd
    - secure erase the ssd
    - partition and quick format ssd

    switch off pc and disconnect the power to all harddisks, other than the one installing to.
    - boot with the usbstick, f12 to select it to boot from.
    - install windows7 as normal and when done reboot.
    - let w7 settle for a few minutes
    - disable system restore and remove any backups
    - uac off
    - remove hybernation file, w. admin cmdprompt 'powercfg -h off'
    - run wei
    - reboot

    now it's time to get rid of any unknown devices, so install some drivers:
    - install from mobo cd:
    INF Update Utility Version:9.2.0.1021 reboot
    Etron USB driver Version:1.00.0000.0104
    Intel(R) Management Engine Software Version:7.0.0.1118
    Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Vista X64 / Win7 X64 Version:8.15.10.2418 reboot
    Realtek 8111/8168 LAN Driver for gigabit(Windows 7) Version:7.046.0531.2011

    - run windows update
    install critical updates, reboot
    install critical updates, reboot
    install critical updates
    check for more updates
    install critical updates, reboot
    install critical updates

    - install nvidia driver 295.51, enable SLi

    - switch off and reconnect power to other the harddisks.
    power-on and enter bios to set boot sequence.
    start windows, detects hdd's, needs reboot.
    use diskmanager to get the drive letters arranged like I was used to, reboot.
    - install av
    - install acronis
    - install office
    - install firefox
    - run windows update again, reboot
    - create baseline image with acronis

    after that I installed some more drivers:
    - iRST 10.8 and updated intel media drivers (8.15.10.2559)
    and to conclude the setup, some other minor software I had to install.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------


    So far so good, but now come the issues I bumped in to:
    - nic, no driver for it in standard w7 install, meaning you have to have access to the mobocd or other pc+internet+usbstick to get lan going.
    - bootloops, sometimes the system reboots several times before actually starting, clicking from the casespeaker, spinning and stopping fans. https://www.google.com/search?q=z68+bootloops
    - boot beep often not heared.
    - sometimes 'waiting for ME ready' - reboot. https://www.google.com/search?q=waiting+for+me+ready
    - when coldbooting w7 with sli enabled sometimes desktop appears in low res, both geforces have a code 43. restaring again solves it, but it is anoying. It seems somehow this is caused by the network drivers, for me it's just intermittend, no mater what driver it sometimes happens. https://www.google.com/search?q=cold+boot+code+43+sli
    - audio analogue out, in quad speaker config the black output is not tied to rear, had to put the black plug in orange hole. No audio out rear panel - Gigabyte GA-Z68-UD3H-B3 - Sound-Cards - CPU-Components
    - audio no sound to tv over onboard hdmi, no playback device for intel display audio controller. https://www.google.com/search?q=z68+no+audio+over+hdmi . I know the tv and wiring are okay, because I can get it going when connected to the geforce0 with the spdif cable. When connected to the onboard hdmi, viewing the edid of the tv with entech/moninfo it does expose it's speaker capabilities, so I don't understand why no playback device appears in the playback device list. I've tried several intel display audio drivers, but to no avial. Could it be some drm issue, ie. hdcp not okay with the tv or adding the audio packets?
    - multiloadline does very little and mainly just overvolts way over the set level, vcore not steady at any level. I tested this with a set vcore of 1.25v, all powersavings off and fixed speed of 33x100, trying all levels and monitoring the vcore with bios and software(I know, inaccurate, but usually it does indicate) while doing some linx rounds. At level 10 it overvolted the 1.25v setting to 1.45v with even higher spikes. In the pictures it seems like levels 4-5 are most steady, but as soon as frequency goes higher this changes to more spikey. Photo Album - Imgur notice the deviation from the set 1.25v and how I had to change the scale up in level 9&10 pics.

    I'll update and expand wherever it's needed, but for now I feel this should be enough for the start-post.

    Ofcourse, I googled ... it seems on many of those issues I'm not alone, but still I'd like to attempt fixing where possible. So if anyone knows about these issues and if it is even possible to adress them, please let me know.

    I'm at bios F11j, so yes I think that is the latest beta, the board came with F10 installed, I flashed it to see if that would cure anything. I did load optimized defaults before flashing, used qflash+usb, powered down, clr-cmos, powerup, load optimized defs, and then use alt f12. And ofcourse I did all the testing again. The only difference I noticed was that the bidirectional prochot item was no longer there in F11j.

    I'll try expicitly disabling cpu pll overvoltage, I think it's at auto now.

    The odd thing is it will reboot fine 9 out of 10 times, but then the loop, or waiting for ME, or in windows both vga cards have code 43. I have not yet found a sure way to recreate any of those on demand, so it's kind of hard to track what's happening.

    Also I'd really like to get audio to my TV over the onboard hdmi, but somehow I can't seem to get it working.

    While I seem to strugle with some minor issue's I can't quite pinpoint, other stuff is going well. For example a basic oc on all turbo's to 45x with vcore at auto and eist/c1e enabled is fine. I've also managed 51x w. 2cores and 1.4v vCore+MLL=L5. So at that front it seems to be working fine. Even the aging gtx285's love the cpu @ 4.7 giving me 24k vantage score. http://imgur.com/tv3rm

    I've been looking around and in several places it was sugested that using earlier realtek lan drivers helped to solve the problem, so I used the ones from the mobo cd and it seems fine most of the time. Then for no particular reason at all the next morning when I switch on (from standby) it happens, or after complete power cycles it sometimes happens too. It's not that bad to have to reboot, but it should not happen in my book.

    On the hdmi, there is no hdmi device other thanthe 2 realtek ones in the playback-devices panel. I do have the intel display audio device in the device manager, showing as location 3 (internal hd audio bus) but not in the playback devices, only location 2 devices show there, from the realtek onboard.

    Here is a screenshot, showing devicemanager/sound (v&g) controllers, the properties of the intel diplay audio being on location 3, and the playback devices, not showing any location3 device. I did check for hidden and disabled playback devices, but it's not there either. Also visible is the intel display panel, with the acer tv connected, and entech-moninfo showing that the TV-edid is indeed exposing it has 2 speakers.

    No I never use sleep/hibernate, it's on 14h a day, then I shutdown to standby(ie. not using switch on back) and reboot next morning. And then some reboots inbetween when I change stuff ofcourse.

    Yeah I was expecting something similar in my playback-device list, but despite the audio driver for it being installed, no device shows up. I know the tv is working, because when I connect it through my vga card it does work. Mine predate the build-in hdmi but I do have the cable connected to the internal spdif header of the board and get it from the realtek then. I also tried with the tv being the main and only screen connected and the bios set to make the onboard the primary display, as sugested in some forums, but no audio from it.

    Why do you have Intel graphics drivers installed?

    As for audio over HDMI, you need to make sure you have 1.4 cables, and you may need to connect your spdif cable from the cards to the motherboard (Sorry, I'm not an audio buff so that's probably incorrect but sounds right to me). And it looks like you don't have a HDMI audio driver installed, sorry I'm an ATI user so not sure how it should look for Nvidia but for ATI HDMI audio there is a specific driver installed that shows up in audio tab like shown above. You may need to reinstall the Nvidia drivers, and choose advanced/custom and see if there is a HDMI audio Driver. Also right click on a blank area within the audio devices window, and choose show hidden/disabled devices, then if HDMI does not appear you'll need to reinstall the Nvidia drivers and try custom to be sure HDMI audio is not deselected.

    I found this EVGA/Nvidia FAQ about HDMI audio, maybe it will help you get going in the right direction?
    FAQ ID # 58741 - How Do I Enable or Disable HDMI Audio in Windows If I Am Using an HDMI Connection Between My Nvidia Video Card or Motherboard and My Monitor?

    And you may or may not need to install the Microsoft UUA driver first, not sure, hopefully someone with a bit more audio experience will chime in on this for you
    Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) High Definition Audio class driver available for Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and Window 2000

    This might also be of consequence, since you installed onboard graphics drivers I guess this might be similar as he's using a X68 too
    You have to set your iGPU as primary in the bios then windows automatically loads the hdmi audio driver when you next login
    No audio over HDMI (Intel HD Graphics 3000 - i5-2600k's GPU) - Windows 7 Forums

    Avoid using the motherboard/case reset button, it's still finicky and can cause the startup issues you mention. You did get your backup BIOS flashed to match the main correct? Just checking

    And slots 2 + 4 are sometimes more stable, so if you do have memory issues be sure to switch this up and test again.
