    The ONLY thing that fixed this for me was to go back to 2GB based modules, instantly freezes and instant reboots were gone!! I must have missed this before in my initial attempts at switching around various memory kits!

    So, if you are having these issues, and are using 4GB based memory kits, please switch over to 2GB based kits if you can and that should help until they get new BIOSes out!

    There may be added compatibility for 4GB modules in the latest UD5H BIOS, not sure as I'm using UD3H BIOS and have not tested UD5H one yet. Nor have I tested any of the latest Final BIOSes that just came out yet, will test those with 4GB kits tonight
    Mercy, I have the WiFi version of the board on the way and all I have is Samsung 4GB modules that say M379B5273DH0-YK0. I will ask again, anyone with the WiFi board been complaining here?

    I think that thread has poor, scattered advice. It's not "SOLVED" as it claims, and the original post has overkill recommendations.

    How about switching to the other position on the motherboard's BIOS switch? Maybe you'll be able to install F7 with a fresh start there.

    BIOS fix for all Z77 with these modules will be coming, just have to hold on a little longer bud. Sorry you are having issues, I've sent in a report and will update here once I hear back with compatible BIOSes.

    *For anyone that missed my earlier post, please be sure to see my post here, and if my findings apply to you then the issue you are having may only be memory BIOS incompatibility issues (They'll get it sorted, just hang tight)

    lockups every few seconds, to a couple of minutes, can'y flash bios from F5 to any other version, says file too small from bios update.
    cant us another program to o it because it locks up in the bIOS and before even managing to load it in.
    eventually got windows on it after crashing all the way through loading it in.

    tried it on the SSD , quit that after too many lockups, tried on new HDD, have given in now.
    may try again tomorrow or just send the heap of junk back to amazon.
    new everything except keyboard and mouse, and they randomly lock up as well.
    corsair low profile white meory.

    I bought the processor and memory and MOBO cos they got gold awards in the magazine. D'oh.

    PLEASE can someone tell me how to get past the bios file too small in qbios update.

    I will try that again one last time.
    I'm completely gutted - its turned an exciting new pc into a complete nightmare.

    Thanks

    Did you execute the compressed bios file you downloaded to extract the bios file? Had to ask because you referred to yourself as a newbie.

    The bios file should be 8MB

    Initially I had some freezes in Explorer 9 and when my Logitech Momo Usb Steering was attached to the this board I was not even able
    to enter the bios screens.

    But since I installed Bios F7, so far the mb is rock stable, all settings on Auto in bios (except 1394 en audio swithed off) cpu
    i7 3770k running at 4200 mhz.

    There is always the possibility that you have a faulty mb, but I would recommend the following.:

    remove all usb components except the mouse and keyboard.
    use 1 ram stick.
    do a clear cmos, remove the power cable.
    recheck if all cables are connected correctly.

    use the force!

    eventhough I understand your frustration, it might not be the mb but other components or a combination
    or even you psu being responsible for your current problems.

    Thumbs up Re: GZ-Z77X-UD5H Random freezing and shutdowns.

    Well I had no problems with my first build on this board since F7, have since bought 3 more of these motherboards built 3 more pc's. No problems at all using corsair vengeance lp 16gb kit 1600c9 and I7 3770k cpus all clock to 4.6 so I think most rmas will turnout ok and its compatibilty with whatever people are using with the boards

    Well I hope so. I am using Samsung RAM. I have the Wi-Fi version of the board on the brown truck.
