    Default Gigabyte Z87X-OC and it's issues.

    Hey all,

    I got this board since the release now, but it hasn't been as smooth as with all my previous Gigabyte boards.

    I'm currently stuck with the following issues:

    - CPU Fans sometimes stuck at 100% after cold boot.
    - F3/F4 some USB devices disappear when transfering files to them when used in a USB 3.0 Port.
    - F5 fixes the above, but causes the Videocard to go spastic. (Black Screen and then Framerate is borked untill Flashed back to F4)

    Today i also replaced my Creative X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro with the new Creative SoundBlaster ZxR and when i started the PC it said the Main BIOS was corrupted and was restored with F3 from the Backup BIOS.

    So i went and try something out.

    1) Start PC with ZxR.
    BIOS Fine
    2) Shut down PC.
    3) Remove ZxR.
    4) Start PC.
    BIOS Fine
    5) Shut down PC.
    6) Install ZxR.
    7) Start PC.
    BIOS Corrupt.
    7) Remove ZxR.
    8) Start PC.
    BIOS Fine.
    9) Install ZxR.
    10) Start PC.
    BIOS Corrupt.

    Now the ZxR is currently installed and is working as expected, BIOS stays fine aswell. It seems it only happens when a new device is being detected. I still got my old X-Fi card and will try tomorrow if the corruption is releated to the ZxR, since it's working fine i doubt it.
    It's not the first time i ran into a BIOS Corruption with this board.

    I'm running the latest Firmware and Drivers of all devices.

    Are there more people with issues with this board?

    Just tried the old X-Fi card which booted fine. When i put the ZxR back in it also booted fine.

    So dunno really, perhaps it was related to poorly flashed Bios? Last time i flashed to F4 i used @BIOS. When it corrupted earlier today and was restored with F3 i decided to flash to F4 with QFlash instead.

    The other 3 issues i listed are still valid tho.

    Also the Videocard issue with Bios F5 can be compared with the TDR issue, except i'm not getting the warning from Windows that the Driver has stopped responding. Another guy over at Overlock.net has the same issue with F5 and he also uses an NVIDIA card. He tried older drivers but the problem was still there.

    Both times it happend in Gaming sessions. The screen went black then came back and the framerate was below 15. Rebooting (even cold boot) didn't fix the problem, it's like something locked up. The card did go in 3D Mode and had full clocks, but the framerate was still below 15.

    The only way i could fix it both times was flashing back to F4. And F4 doesn't suffer from this problem with the same Drivers.

    (It first happend with F5q and the second time with F5)

    IGPU has been disabled since day one. PCI-E setting has been set to Gen3 and Auto. Currently in F4 it's set to Gen3 which works flawless. It happend at both settings if i remember right.

    I'm also wondering why the Renesas USB 3.0 Drivers have been removed from the Gigabyte site.

    I been told that in one of the F5 betas something had been changed with the PCI-E speeds.

    So i'm guessing that's why my card goes limp after a while.
