    The way I look at it, I'll have plenty of time to fiddle/fart around with other peoples' Haswell issues once I get up to speed with my Haswell system. Right now I'm leaning towards an Asus or MSI mobo. I'm PO'd at Gigabytes poor record with NOT delivering stable bioses and keeping owners waiting for way too long with "promised" bios updates starting with P67 systems. I need to carefully check out the official Asus motherboard forums that appear to have active factory tech support. Stasio has been doing a hell of a good job with Gigabyte support, but without someone like Lsdme to provide Gigabyte support I think that other brands will provide the best overall support. Sin0822's posts are superb, but he doesn't post here anywhere near as often as Lsdme used to.

    I'm in no hurry as I probably won't buy my system until late summer or during the holiday shopping season starting around Black Friday/Thanksgiving.
    Yeah, the Home version was $23.20.

    Gigabyte released a bunch more boards than anyone else at once, apparently, so I guess their bios guy/guys are scrambling. But yeah, I'm no where near up to speed to provide anyone much help on Haswell, and Sin mostly hangs at OCN. Every time Gigabyte releases an enthusiast level board Sin starts a post over there for issues/problems and he passes along to Gigabyte whatever he can in the way of feedback for the problems people are having. It's a matter of being stretched too thin; he can only do so much and I would like to see Gigabyte actively enlist some knowledgeable person to hang out over here. But then, there really isn't that many I know of so it's back to square 1.

    From what Sin has told me Gigabyte is making effort to get everything straightened out, but it's NOT just Gigabyte having problems with Haswell, especially with setups like mine with a lot of storage.

Of course in the past I've had all backups absolutely fail so who knows? I know one thing: I will never, ever, buy Acronis again. It has failed me too many times.
    The bios I guess doesn't see Windows as an EFI install, or does and can't find the partition, IDK, but whenever there is a boot problem the C drive won't show up as UEFI in the bios.
    Someone has been relaying my probs to Gigabyte so I'm hoping a fix is forthcoming.....there was speculation about the IRST drivers but I'm using older 12.0 version.............
    FWIW, the Acronis version that Intel provides to clone their SSDs (and only to or from their SSDs) had an update to work with UEFI Windows installations, which worked perfectly for me. Ridiculous that the free version worked and your paid version did not.

    IRST version 12.6... was removed by Intel from their download pages, and I can see why. RAID 0 arrays were unable to survive a Windows BSOD, an OS was unable to boot afterwards. Installed Windows three times using 12.6 with the same result. Changed to 12.5.0.1066 and no more problems. OTOH, 12.6 worked fine with non-RAID volumes, single SSD for the OS, and was quicker to boot than earlier versions.

    Latest version from Intel is 12.5.0.1066 now. ASRock still has 12.6.0.1033 available for download, while ASUS and Gigabyte have 12.0.0.1083, which Intel also has. I don't think I ever used 12.0, so can't comment on it.

    I read somewhere can be set with Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility.
    It's in my sticky thread.

    I still keep 12.5.3 and 12.6.3 in my sticky (12.6.0 pulled).

    12.0 = 12.0.0.1083 if you're responding to my post. I just used "shorthand". lol.
    But like I said, I couldn't even boot with 12.6 on my Z87, had to do a system restore.
    There must be still something hinky with the drivers....I had to move my SSD's to the Marvell ports to be recognized...

    Thanks. I sought out and downloaded the ETU from Intel, based on your recommendation. I tried it out and saw the Adaptive Voltages. But I uninstalled it because I was having troubles with the MB's BIOS after trying to get Turbo Boost to push my rig up to 4.7 GHz.

    I had to go over and over to repair the settings. It seems as if I need to reboot to Windows before any new settings stick. Weird. I can't just make a change, reboot to BIOS, and make the next change.

    I do one change per boot because I was having the BIOS freeze on me if I made too many changes all at once.

    Seems to be OK at 4.7GHz now. So I'll reinstall the Intel. That is one very good piece of software. Thanks for drawing it to our attention.

    I pretty much guessed ivy-e was soldered,intels weak excuse for solder damaging tri gate transistors my arse!!

    Maybe Costa Rica isn't ready yet for production?

    I swear im going to put my fist through my mobo soon!!

    Im not sure the problems im having with getting my system stable when video encoding is to do with my CPU or voltage used, i think it might be the memory causing problems. Im having to use a vcore of 1.310v for 4.7Ghz OC and thats still not enough to make the system stable for video encoding (still BSOD). Before i even noticed that i had a problem with stability and video encoding my system was stable at 4,7Ghz at just 1.260 vcore with OCCT and ADIA64!!! for over 3 hours.

    I have just this moment, changed the multiplier for my memory from x16 (1600mhz) down to x13 (1333mhz) and loosened the timings from 8,8,8,24 to 9,9,9,24 and lowered the vcore from 1.310v back down to 1.260v, and was able to achieve 15 minute in video encoding before the system BSOD!!!, I initially tried 1.260 vcore without altering my memory settings and as soon as i started the video encoding the system BSOD!!... so this would point to the memory.

    What does video encoding stressing out the system more that what OCCT and ADIA64 would/did, as i have said i was able to have much lower vcore when stressing with those 2 programs for 3 and half hours, but then noticed i got a BSOD when i did my first video encoding, and now for 4.7Ghz it would appear i need more that 1.310v where before it happyly passed 3 and half hours with ADIA64 on 1.260 vcore. Just seems ridiculous, what can i use to make sure this memory is up to the task at just running stock speeds, i dont want to OC the memory at all i just want it stable and it would appear atm its the memory causing BSOD with video encoding!??
