I made the upgrade to the latest version of Firmware ... F9c. date (2018/01/10)

Now what was already bad! it got worse! my God! Is Gigabyte using trainees to try to solve it? because it is what it seems!

What board do you have?  On page 8 you say your have a z270x-Gaming K7 and your profile shows a Gaming 7? 

I hope you are using the correct BIOS for the model and revision of your board.  Even though your memory is not on the QVL ...  Have you tried setting the memory timings 16-18-18-36 and 1.35v manually?

Sorry, my motherboard is Z270x-Gaming 7.

What I tried was ...
- Update Bios
- Disable XMP
- Use only one memory module (it gets a little more stable, but not ideal)

"*setting the memory timings 16-18-18-36 and 1.35v manually?" (I do not quite understand how to do this.)

Reduce ram speed to max 2400 and see if that works better!

Motherboards with AMD processors / PC doesnt boot with RAM in Dual Channel
« Last post by Thapterefor on February 17, 2018, 05:20:37 pm »
Hey Guys,
I'm having a Problem with my RAM where I can only get my PC to boot with one stick or with both ram sticks in different Channels, if I do that the ram is in Single Channel Mode according to CPU-z and 8GB are being recognized but only 3,95GB are usable. If however, I put both sticks in one of the two Channels, the PC doesn't even Boots, the Fans are spinning, but the Mainboard doesn't light up, no display output, nothing. I tested both Ram sticks on their own and they were working fine, just not together as it seems. I tried Updating my Bios to the newest version (F22b) but that didn't help either. Mine Mainboard also tells me I should use DDR4_1 & DDR4_2 which are on different channels but if I do that I just get to use 3,95GB as stated earlier. At this point I'm not sure what to do in running the PC with just one Stick build in because that seems to have better performance than when I install both, I'm currently not able to test other ram or my ram on another Mainboard since mine is the only DDR4 comfortable one in the House. I'm hoping you guys might find something I was missing. I also Have my COU and Ram on Stock speeds rn and am running Win 64bit.

DDR4_4 & DDR4_1: Booting - Only 3,95GB usable

DDR4_4 & DDR4_2: Not working

DDR4_4 & DDR4_3: Booting - Only 3,95GB usable

DDR4_3 & DDR4_1: Not working

DDR4_3 & DDR4_2: Not working

DDR4_2 & DDR4_1: Booting - Only 3,95GB usable

 

Mainboard: Gigabyte Ga-AX370 Gaming K5

CPU: Ryzen 6 1600X

Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x 4GB DDR4 (3000MHz)

GPU: Nvidea Geforce GTX 970

Bios F8 fixed my problem :) :)

Yep PC stays shut down when i shut it down now even when XMP is on. :)

Havent tried restarting from windows yet because it cant be good for hard drives if it still does that quick shutdown and then reboot thing.

The simple answer is no, you cannot use the BIOS for one motherboard on a different model with the same chipset.

This is because of the different components used on each different motherboard and the way that the BIOS has been configured to work with the basic chipset and other hardware.

If you try to flash the BIOS with a different model's BIOS it will usually fail and give a warning that the BIOS is the incorrect version.

Rather than flashing the BIOS have you tried to run the 3Tb+ unlock utility?
You can download it from here: https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3-rev-10#support-dl and I would try this rather than attempting to flash the BIOS.

All hardware on the P67/Z68  boards are specific, based on AWARD BIOS (CPU and PWM controller,etc..).
So,to implement UEFI BIOS was been big ordeal.
Second limitation is BIOS chip size .

may we know why this double standards with same size of bios and same chip set.

pardon (for words double standards)

Thanks
Parminder Singh

PS:- why i'm here because system need uefi bios according tech guy and i don't want to build new PC if my old PC can support my requirements but for i need 4TB of drive with UEFI(as per tech guy)

Greetings,
Good questions, simple answer. 

While hardware can always be a mitigating factor, the decision was likely due to which board was selling better or was anticipated to have more longevity.


so, i like to know if i can install same to my board z68x-ud7-b3 or not?

Thank you

Motherboards with Intel processors / Re: Spectre vulnerability - BIOS update
« Last post by shadowsports on February 16, 2018, 02:28:58 pm »
There are no firm release dates.  This has been an ongoing discussion here.  The fixes will come from intel, AMD and Microsoft and will be cumulative, taking as I predicted, several months to be tested and deployed.  No single manufacturer has a solution (regardless of what they might claim) and being first to that finish line doesn't mean you win.  Earlier this week more exploits were identified.  Be patient.  The vulnerabilities have been present for ages, long before your devils canyon or broadwell chip was produced.  There is nothing you can do. 

I see this is your first post, so welcome to the forums.   :)

Motherboards with Intel processors / Re: Z370 AORUS Gaming K3, FAN speed..
« Last post by shadowsports on February 16, 2018, 02:19:28 pm »
Hand off occurs during transition between POST and OS loader.  This could cause changes to fan RPM.  If its working correctly in the OS, I wouldn't worry about it.

Motherboards with Intel processors / Spectre vulnerability - BIOS update
« Last post by JohnnyB691 on February 15, 2018, 07:49:26 am »
Do you know when an actual Bios update will be released for my Gigabyte motherboard (GA-Z97X-Gaming 3 (rev. 1.1) ), in order to address the Spectre vulnerability?

Currently this issue is not addressed with the current Bios version (F7), also the below tool will show you the actual results:
