Thread: GA-Z77X-UD5H bios boot failure only overnight




  1. #1

    Default [solved] GA-Z77X-UD5H bios boot failure only overnight

    system is stable can run for days + gaming + whatnot;
    new quality PSU as fixing attempt;
    tried tons of settings in bios: oc off, more ram voltage, etc. etc.
    tried switching off psu overnight;
    rebooting never fails, booting after only a couple hours never fails either;
    only after about 6 hours+ i get those bios resets first time starting - i hate it;

    any ideas?

    Welcome to the club. I've been plagued with this problem since first using this board. Mine doesn't happen every time I cold start. It seems to come and go. I may not see it for a week and then it will happen every day for a few days. I continue to try different things, it goes away, I think I cured it and it cmes back. PITA.
    I've tried every BIOS version including betas, since F4 which came on the board. I thought it was a USB issue and spent countless hours messing with that. I've also spent many hours on the internet looking for ideas and trying anything that was suggested. Nothing fixes it.
    Sorry I'm not helping you, but thought you would like to know you're not alone. Perhaps someone will post something here that will help us both.

    tried with latest final unmodded bios?

    found issues with all beta's regarding saving and applying bios settings,could be linked to that,no issues at all with final bios's

    I tried the latest F14 final, same thing. I've had no applying or saving problems with the beta's. My only issue with this board has been this cold boot issue.

    cold boot issues are usually memory or cpu imc setting/voltage related

    maybe try one or two clicks more dram v and cpu/vtt voltage

    could also be down to running a sb chip on z77 board,i can leave this pc unplugged or days and boot it up straight away

    EDIT: looking at the ops amount of ram I would look at ram settings tbh

    It could be voltage, but I'm almost certain I have have increased both dram v and cpu v in my past attempts trying to remedy this. I'll give it a go the next time it fails to properly boot.
    It's interesting that the OP and I have nearly the identical problem, but the only common factor is the motherboard itself. Our specs are very different. It could be that both of our motherboards have the same defect. I'd RMA this board if it wasn't such a PITA and the fact that it does run very good once it boots.

    Thanks for the replies guys, i'll follow the RAM angle next time, current test topic is running off the iGPU.

    Having fully outfitted ram was the reason i went down the road of beta and modded bioses in the first place.. and random crashes after sleep (which seem to be fixed by shutting down aida64 first).
    I need the ram for VMs, so stepping down to 16gb is not really a pleasing thought.

    I've also tried unmodded F16 without success.

    Testing in 6hr+ intervals is so... efficient..

    max safe cpu/vtt voltage is 1.2v so you can test anywhere from stock 1.05v upwards

    dram voltage can be 1.5v-1.65v

    I wish I could offer some help other than suggest further RAM tweaking. Both my Z77x UD5H boards run very smoothly for quite a while-although my wife's is starting to get that annoying "surge on USB" message popping up again.
    As for repairs.....both my Z77x UD5H boards have been to Gigabyte for repairs, although unrelated to your problems. Turnaround time delivered back to me was 11-14 days once Gigabyte had the boards so it's something to keep in mind.

    I hope you guys get it straightened out, as I think that when running right, the UD5H series are great boards.

    What about the deal with IMC having to be within 0.005v of VTT? Found this information in several ivybridge oc guides.
    By default they're like 0.060 apart.

    boondocks: may i ask what kind of repairs.. i mean you don't really repair motherboards, do you?
