Motherboards with AMD processors / Re: 870A-UD3 v3.1 needs a Win-10 BIOS.
« Last post by Kenshiro on May 18, 2018, 09:06:49 am »
So my 870A-UD3 v3.1 with an AMD-Phenom II X6 1090T has been running rock solid for several years, but needs a Win-10 BIOS to ever hope to upgrade to an AM3+ processor. 

I don't see a BIOS update for Win10 (I'm running an Enterprise Win10 with creators update).

Anyone seen a BIOS for this board and Win10 that will enable AM3+ CPUs?
Pete

You never got an answer on this, so let me quickly jump in, but you probably have your problem already sorted out.
 
AM3 cpu's can be used in AM3+ socket, but not the other way around. You want to use a AM3+ cpu on a AM3 motherboard, that unfortunately is not possible.
No BIOS update will enable that...

I run the same cpu as you, with Win 10 installed. If all you want is install Win 10 go ahead, you won't have all the proper drivers, since your mobo only has support until Win 8.  If you have a SSD a a system drive, just replace the AMD controller with the Windows Controller (AHCI), under Device Manager (http://forums.crucial.com/t5/Crucial-SSDs/Replacing-Manufacturer-AHCI-drivers-with-standard-Microsoft-SATA/ta-p/176373).

I fully understand you, I've been running the 1090T for 7 years now and it's running perfectly smooth still.
If I were you, I would wait still 1-2 years, then Zen 3 (7nm) will be out.  I will wait 2 more years to upgrade my rig.

Just received new identical board. All is good now.

My suggestion? tos 7 and go 10 ... far superior OS!
..
but do a fresh install after upgrade from 7 (which is important)
get free WinaeroTweaker to customise the scene but that's it.

Seriously, 7 looks like a lab Δ job compared to 10

(otherwise keep reinstalling 7 :)

The plan was to install Win 10 from the beginning, and I did, with the old graphics card. But the freezes were present in Win 10, too. Therefore I installed win 7 again to try sort out all the issues, which I successfully did.
The new 1060 works like a charm.

The solution for the random freezes :
I replaced in Device Manager under the IDE / ATA / ATAPI section,  AMD's Ahci driver with Microsoft's.
No more freezes on my Samsung evo 860 :)
Next step is Win 10.

Motherboards with AMD processors / X470 bios version f4g not working 100%
« Last post by gasolin on May 16, 2018, 02:49:30 pm »
Aorus X470 gaming 7 wifi on f4g bios has no working cpu fan header, meaning they don't change speed when i stresstest and i have no Precision Boost Overdrive.

Going back to f4e my cpu cooler now change speed if i stresstest but still no Precision Boost Overdrive.

Why do i not have precision boost overdrive?

Why did gigabyte release a not 100% working bios?

System is not a possibility unfortunately.
The only option that I have on the bios, is TBT USB3.1 Force Power that was introduced in F20x series. Ironically, on or off, TBT doesn't show up on device manager nor the Thunderbolt software...
I also think that this is related of me not having any more fast charging on my Google Pixel like I used too.

Greetings,
Sounds like you have made reasonable attempts to troubleshoot and resolve your problem.  Is system restore a possibility or has it been too long?  If I recall, the device also appears in BIOS.  If you have upgraded the BIOS, be sure to check for its presence there as well.

I would contact gigabyte support.  Thunderbolt hardware has been finnicky since its release.  Sporadic detection, working then it doesn't.  I would suggest making a back up of your system in case you need to revert back to the point where you are now in further troubleshooting steps.  This way you can try to completely uninstall and re-install the device.

Motherboards with Intel processors / Re: questions about M2 NVMe

As you can see on my signature, my SSD as not face any slowdown. SSD Samsung utility says that the ssd is in PCIex 4x link and from benchmarks there's no slowdown even when the 2 nvidias are working.

I have a H170-D3HP since a couple of years. When I bought it, everything regarded Thunderbolt was working. I followed everything that was to do, installed the drivers and then successfully installed the firmware. The port appeared on the device manager, on system devices and (if I recall) also under universal serial bus controllers. Also in the settings of the Thunderbird Software, in the Details, service version, controller driver version and networking driver version would appear just fine.
At some point, I don't quite remember when, but Thunderbolt device vanished from device manager. Also on the Thunderbolt software details, service driver, controller driver and networking driver no more display a version, but instead it shows Unknown !!! I tried to update Thunderbolt drivers (even tried the original drivers for this mobo and other different drivers) but the same on the details. I think that a firmware update is the cause and it probably happened when I first flash the F20x series!!
I already dweled the forums and the internet and from what I see, this is something that is common to at least all the x170 series mobo from Gigabyte. Something wrong must happened...

Any ideas how to fix this?? Maybe only new firmware version, right??

Just wanted to say that this was finally solved.
How ?
Re-installing Win7 and all has been recognized. However, I have another issue now...

I used a new SSD for this, Samsung Evo 860, and I realized that after installation, I'm having random freezes.
The freezing lasts for 2-3 minutes, mouse can move, but nothing else opens.
Not sure why this is happening, my previous SSD "OCZ Agility 3 120GB" never had this kind of behaviour.
I did use another Sata 3 cable, which I bought from Amazon (ProductPlus), could this be the reason ?
I've attached the old cable again and see how it performs, if it keeps happening, I will have to replace the SSD drive.

Cheers,
Ken
