Graphic cards / Re: Warranty and water block?!
« Last post by BoNfiRe on November 26, 2020, 09:42:09 am »
Thanks for that info. And yeah, I have a hard line custom loop all with EK and XSPC components. I've the same components since my pre order of my 1600X with no leaks since 2017 and various upgrades. I know things are unlikely to fail, but they do, and want to be covered as a 3080 is blinkin expensive.
What to do first.  Determine if the "update" is for the App Center itself, or for one of the installed Apps.

This might be difficult since the downloadable version on the support portal for your board as of today is:


You'll have to reconcile the Apps since that varies based on what you have installed. 

If it really bothers you, you can uninstall, restart (important step) and reinstall.  See if that helps. 

I've been using the same version of the App Center on my Z97 rig for almost 3 yrs.  I turned off auto update.  Works perfectly.

Just curious, what happens with the warranty if I got a 3080 and put a water block on it?

Basic warranty info can be found here:

Note, if the card failed due to a leaky water block or some other "modification", it could put your warranty in questions.  There would need to be evidence of this and a failure would have to be a direct result of a modification for a product not to be covered. 

Here's an example.  You can put a tow hitch on your car.  If your exceed the tongue weight of the hitch or the towing capacity of your engine and the frame bends or the engine blows up, your warranty might be questioned.

I know how how feel.  I put a Corsair H80i V2 on my CPU.  Its above a video card I paid nearly $800 for.  If it leaks, my motherboard or card could die.  I have 2, they work great.  The performance is worth the risk to me. 

If you are going to put anything water in your case, make sure its good quality and from a reputable manufacturer.     

Motherboards with AMD processors / APP Center keeps telling me there's an update?

APP Center  ( B20.0803.1 )  keeps telling me there's an update and the icon on the right in the taskbar shows a small red mark to signify this. But I cannot see what needs updating as there is no more information in the tabs called Gigabyte Apps, or Windows Settings? ........... do we just have to guess or just ignore all this?

All other GIGABYTE products / Question on Thunderbolt Titan Ridge 2.0 PCI-E card
« Last post by Sirrunalot on November 23, 2020, 02:59:57 pm »
Hey guys, I am considering buying the abovementioned card. I noticed that the card has two PCI-E power connectors. Do I have to connect them for all functionalities of the card? If not, for what functionalities do I need the connectors? I saw a Youtubevideo on the Alpine Ridge Thunderbolt Gigabyte card which also has both the PCI-E power connectors; in the video, a hard disk is attached and a data transfer via thunderbolt is shown without the PCI-E power connectors connected.
X99 Motherboards / Re: Can't disable CSM / Gigabyte X99-UD4

X99 - A oldie but goodie.

Your card and a boot drive formatted GPT should support UEFI / Secure boot and should allow you to disable CSM.

Pay attention to these BIOS options:

Windows 8 Features

Allows you to select the operating system to be installed. (Default: Other OS) & CSM Support
Enables or disables UEFI CSM (Compatibility Support Module) to support a legacy PC boot process.

Enabled Enables UEFI CSM. (Default)
Disabled Disables UEFI CSM and supports UEFI BIOS boot process only.

This item is configurable only when Windows 8 Features is set to Windows 8

Boot Order > Select Windows Boot Manager (if available)


Might you have something else installed that requires legacy boot support?

X99 Motherboards / Can't disable CSM / Gigabyte X99-UD4
« Last post by Geicher on November 23, 2020, 08:29:48 am »
Hello everybody,

I recently upgraded to a new RTX 3070 and noticed a few more beeping sounds at the startup of the system. After a quick search, I learned this is probably due to CSM in the BIOS.
This turned out to be true, so I made sure I have Windows 10 in GPT and disabled CSM in the BIOS.
However, after saving settings, the system will do a cold reboot and set the setting back to "Enabled".

I thought, maybe the BIOS on my card doesn't support UEFI-GOP for some reason, but I couldn't disable CSM on my old 1070 as well.

Can you help me with this?

Rest of my system:
Gigabyte X99-UD4
4 x 4 GB DDR4 2133 MHz
PNY RTX 3070
Win 10 64 Bit

Hi, is there any chance someone could brake down for me the flat 8pin pcie power connector? I found layout of normal 8pin pcie connector but planing put water block on but this adapter is just hanging out. I could do cable myself if I would know the connection pins order. Any help would be appreciated.

Not clear what you want to do.  The card has 2 8-Pin connectors.  If your PSU has 8 pin use that, otherwise 6+2.

Custom?  Careful you don't short out your card.

Graphic cards / Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1650 OC 4G rev 2.0 - Quite Noisy

Hi Folks,
I have a new GPU and it is quite noisy, I have the Aorus OC software and it is set to the default settings. Is there a way of reducing the noise other than replacing the GPU fan?
