    Default GA-Z87X-UD3H - Issues with F6(any) bios

    Per this post, going to make a profile for this - http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...tml#post460711

    Specs are

    Motherboard: GA-Z87X-UD3H
    CPU: i7-4770K (stock speeds)
    RAM: 2x Corsiar PC3 4GB @ stock 800mhz
    GFX: 2x EVGA GTX680 in SLI @ stock, not OC editions or anything.
    HDD: 2x Corsair M4 128GB in stripe on Intel Controller.
    Case: Dell XPS 730X
    PS: Dell 1KW (From XPS 730X)

    When running the F5 bios, I am 100% stable, but only with 2 sticks of RAM, fair enough, RAM may not be 100% compatible with Haswell. However when I run just the 2 sticks of ram and not 4 and upgrade to any F6 beta bios, I am experiencing issues once I am using the system for awhile, especially in 3D stuff like Battlefield 3, what will happen is, the system is fine, then suddenly the system/video/sound will start to freeze for 5 seconds at a time, then go back, then repeat constantly for about 30 seconds before it hard-locks. I've noticed while this happens the "System Interrupt" (DPC) process starts using 10% CPU usage, which it usually sits at 1% as far as I can tell.

    Anyone else seeing this issue or have any recommendations.

    The only difference in the system is F5 to F6 bios.

    are you setting up the ram timings/speed/dram voltage manually? and with 16gb you'll need more cpu imc voltage(not sure what its labelled as on haswell)

    even switching bios's will mean reviewing/tweaking your bios/oc settings to suit,esp the memory and cpu imc voltage

    Using XMP profile 1 right now and only using 2 sticks at the moment.

    It is basically this one. CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9

    But I am a little less concerned about the RAM issue as the DPC issue with the System Interrupt. I've gone 2 weeks without an issue, no BSOD or lock up, and on the F6 bios's they all hard-lock the System Interrupt process as stated above. So obviously there has to be something weird in those BIOS, no? I'm not overclocking anything.

    So,did XMP set timing 1600....9-9-9-24 @ 1.50V?
    As wazza ask for 4 sticks you will need to set timing manually @ 1.52-1.54V(don't use XMP) and
    System Agent: +0.10v
    CPU IO Analog: +0.10v
    CPU IO Digital: +0.10v

    Btw,
    maybe more about your UD3H you will found here:

    Quick question, I think there is a typo in the Memory QVL

    http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList...-z87x-ud3h.pdf

    Under 1866mhz lists the first 2 items. -

    CMZ16GX3M4X1866C9R - is here - Vengeance®

    CMD16GX3M4X1866C9 - doesn't exist anywhere, I think they meant "CMZ" not "CMD" and that would mean it is just the non-red one, and color is black.

    Would that seem accurate, a typo on the second item?

    I am just thinking of changing the memory to see what happens.. strongly considering this - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB &#40;4 x 4GB&#41; 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 &#40;PC3 12800&#41; Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9Q-16GBXL - Newegg.com

    It's on the list for the UD3H board.

    Thoughts?

    I suppose it could be 2x8gb, any disadvantage in speed of using 2x8gb instead of 4x4GB?
