    Exclamation Problem with Gigabyte Z87x-D3H and i7 4770 non-k -> can not set 3,9GHz on all turbo cores! Please help

    Hey guys, i think intel or gigabyte locked the possibility to change the turbo to 3,9ghz on all cores! i can set it to x39, but nothing happens when i run prime.. it is still in cpu-Z or speccy on 3,7ghz on all cores.. Please help me, can i do anything to unlock this? or can somebody send or make me a mod bios with this feature enabled! I think the Intel microcode is the problem... because xeon cpu's are locked too, i just thought the i7 is not turbo locked, but i was wrong -.- ^^

    I tried the F8d mod bios, but it did not solve the turbo problem^^ still 3,7ghz on all cores.

    My system:
    Mainbaord: Gigabyte Z87x-D3H Rev. 1.1 (C2 Stepping) with latest F8 BIOS
    CPU: Intel i7 4770
    RAM: G.Skill 8gb ddr3-2400
    GPU: Gigabyte gtx 660ti oc


    Best regards,

    3.9GHz is the turbo frequency for dual core loads only. Check out this page for more info: Intel® Core™ i7 Desktop Processor — Intel® Turbo Boost Technology frequency table

    yes i know, but for instance on asrock boards it should be possible to run x39 or for instance with the xeon e3 1230 v3 x37 on all turbo cores with "multicore enhancement"

    is there no way to get this on my board? i think it is just a intel microcode and bios problem, maybe someone can mod the F8 bios with this things to make x39 multicore turbo enabled on all cores.

    Try this F8-mod1.

    Should enable x39 max turbo for non K-series.

    but i dont understand, why the i7 has 0,75-0,76v idle voltage on EVERY bios. this is 0,06v more than for instance xeon e3-1230-v3.

    and one problem with your f8-mod1 rom: if i change voltage to offset for instance, it does not accept the settings and is still:

    idle: 0,75v-0,76v

    non-avx prime 26.6: 1,18v
    avx prime and fma3 prime: 1,24v (is this not little bit too high? xeon e3-1230-v3 had 1,18v @ 3,5ghz all cores)

    and if i want to set the cores to default clock in bios, it is still x39 on all cores^^ this is not really a problem, but i just want to tell you!^^


    and one other problem that gigabyte did not solve until now..
    the usb keyboard is often not reacting in the bios post screen, so i cant join the bios and have to restart. its just a 50/50 chance that the keyboard works^^ with the F8d bios the keyboard worked a little bit better!
    maybe you can make a ultimate good working bios with no bugs? xD ^^

    best regards :)

    You are comparing two different processors:

    E3-1230 v3, 3.3 - 3.7GHz, 80W Max TDP, no graphics.

    i7-4770, 3.4 - 3.9GHz, 84W Max TDP, includes 4600 HD graphics.

    The difference in voltage is 6/100 Volt, which is not much, but still these processors are not identical.

    I'm sorry to say (this is not about the modification done in this thread), but I just don't understand how people can live with these boards with their seemingly endless BIOS problems. This can be almost anything, like simple, basic things, like the keyboard working in the BIOS, mentioned in this thread. I read about these BIOS issues all the time in this forum. After seeing these issues and the endless beta BIOS versions that might fix one issue and introduce two more, could I buy one of these boards? No way.

    hey parsec. you are 100% right... but these are little bugs and the board works fine so far. maybe stasio or someone else can solve the problem with this bios.. i think gigabyte isn't possible to. xD ( last bios update more than 2 months ago)

    one other problem i had two times (don't know if the motherboard is the problem): i was on desktop and the pc peeper startet on and did not end. it was like a tüüüüüüüüüüüüüü...... didnt end. one single sound exactly the same sound all the time. pc worked still fine so far. only a restart or shutdown helped to stop the annoying sound xD. does anybody know what this could be? everything is installed correctly. (this happened under official gigabyte f8 bios)

    wish u all nice day and hope for replys! :)

    * EDIT:
    I tried to set a offset voltage but with the f8 mod1 bios it does not take my settings. still like on auto^^

    * EDIT2:
    on some programs / games my pc shows errors like in league of legends "League of legends has to be stopped working" with f8 mod1 bios

    The board alway uses auto settings and x39 multiplier. would be nice if you could make it possible to solve this things in the posts above?

    Greets, rudl92^^

    EDIT:
    with official F8 bios by gigabyte, x37 on all turbo cores, auto settings: idle 0,76v / stress test: 1,12-1,13v / avx/FMA3 stress test: 1,8v

    with mod 1 bios F8: idle 0,76 / stress test: 1,18v / avx/FMA3 stress test: 1,24v (VERY high i think)

    So i think it would be better if the mod1 bios takes the standard voltage settings, because 1,24v is very high vor x39 all cores..
