    Tried the latest USB3 driver but still getting lock-ups.

    Decided to run the system for a few days with no USB3 driver as that seems stable. If no problems arise I'll probably try USB3 driver again with bclk 100.1 and/or fitting a graphics card.

    Apart from the possible integr. video graphic bug / conflict, the usb ports are very sensative.

    When my Logitech Momo Steering wheel is connected, I'm NOT able to even enter the Bios screen,
    so whilst updating the Bios I need to remove the Momo completely.

    I hope to get some feedback soon from GB Taiwan.

    Two days ago I changed the motherboard GA-Z77-D3H to a new low-cost MSI Z77A-G43 (I need COM-port support). Everything else devices is the same as it was before.
    Both motherboards have the same logic Z77 so Windows 7 x64 was not been reinstalled (left from the old installation on GA-Z77-D3H), only the driver on Realtek LAN and Audio was added.
    2 days, flight is normal, no freezes! Despite the fact that all the devices is same even installation of Windows 7 x64.

    Before this I had a MSI motherboard, and it is working 24*7. I do not know what prompted me to buy a Gigabyte, I am very upset with the products of this company because all boards ZH77 have freeze bug, even top model GZ-Z77X-UD5H. Now I'm back with the MSI and very happy.

    I feel the same way -- I am willing to give Gigabyte a BIOS update before I ship this back to where I bought it. On the semi-bright side -- I ended up buying a new case/psu/couple hdd trying to troubleshoot. Now I have my old Q6600 box up and running side by side, so i'll have a decent HTPC when this is all said and done.

    I wonder if the board is just sensitive some dram/other components. I'm not getting any lockups with mine.

    I trust a future Bios will solve a lot of the current problems, if you read this forum you will have noticed that ao. Asrock motherboards are also effected.

    so it is not limited to Gigabyte mb only!

    My preference mb are still Gigabyte and obviously with a new chip set and processors being introduced initial
    set up problems / bugs / imcompatible drivers or components, might be inevitable.

    When I install a new mb and of proc. I always do a complete clean install of Windows 7, just to ensure that
    all previous old mb drivers are replaced.

    Hi guys,

    I bought three new computer parts:

    1) Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H motherboard
    2) Intel i7-3770K cpu
    3) G.Skill Sniper Low Voltage Series, 8GB PC3-12800 DDR3 kit (2 x 4GB) ram

    I'm suffering from the same freezing problems:

    -it freezes in the BIOS
    -it freezes on the desktop
    -the computer turns off when I do a MemTest, usually within an hour.

    At first I thought that the RAM was the problem, so I took it back to the shop for testing. They did a MemTest for 5 hours and said that there was no problems. I also borrowed a single stick of RAM from a friend and still got the same freezing issues. So it's not the RAM.

    Anyways, I just flashed the beta BIOS version F8a, loaded Optimal Defaults, and Saved & Rebooted. After doing that I was able to run MemTest for 5 hours without the computer turning off. Also, I have not experienced any freezes on the desktop and in the BIOS so far.

    So guys, I think it's a BIOS issue. I'll post back if I experience any freezes today.

    UPDATE: Just had a random freeze on the desktop. I'm bringing this board back.. too much of a headache!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It seems awfully unlikely to me that the Intel Smart Connect driver, which has to do with resuming from sleep mode, would fix this problem completely, but please do let us know whether you continue to find your system stable just after installing that driver.

    I'm experiencing these same problems with the same common configuration, including the GA-Z77X-UD5H with 3770K and Corsair Vengeance 1600 MHz 9-9-9-24 (crashing both at SPD settings and XMP Profile 1). Notably, though, I'm only finding the system locked up, permanently, within the Windows 7 environment -- never at the boot-up or BIOS stage. I don't get error reporting, or any BSOD -- just a freeze that requires a power-off.

    So far, trying to whittle down the results in this thread so far, it sounds like the remaining hopeful prospects are:

    1. Setting BCLK in BIOS to 100.1; and/or
    2. Disabling the CPU C3/C5 state in BIOS.

    What's the latest? I'm awfully frustrated by this, and found myself RMA-ing my Vertex drives thinking this was an SSD problem until now. I noticed that this problem has been reported on systems that are not SSD-based, too, even though these kinds of lock-ups are typical SSD-related behavior.
