CPU and Memory Upgrades - Guide and Discussion 15 Feb 2019 05:13 #46

Hello Igor!

The processor is I5-6400T
The motherboard is MDH11HI with F5 bios.



90482B38-D243-43BE-94F1-6E3D41B80DAB.jpeg




If I see this list well:
download.gigabyte.eu/FileList/QVL/embedded_qvl_mdq17ai_cpu_v1.0.pdf
Unfortunately, I7-7700T is not supported.
But it is also true that there is another bios version, F12
b2b.gigabyte.com/Embedded-Computing/MDH11HI-rev-10#support-dl-bios

Please report the results here.

Thanks, Tamás, HG6PTZ

Yes, Bios F5 is not supported I7-7700T
Eric wrote that Bios v.6 already supports.
I think Bios v.12 can also work with CPU I7-770T
Replacing the CPU provides much more than replacing HDD. This is especially important when using multiple monitors with resolutions up to 4k.
I think the SDM of 1TB will not increase the speed of the MB1.
SD - 256 - 512 mb is already a lot for him.
For backup, it is better to use an additional disk, and not to make it on the main SDD.
I will inform about the replacement of the CPU

Hello - no it is not compatible. You cannot use a NGFF drive. It is only for the PCIe slot but, as I have stated, that slot is not accessible. Follow the type and procedure in the UMA. It gets you the fastest possible drive for the SATA slot.

Be careful when reading uninformed replies. If you get the impression you can upgrade BIOS from F5 to F12 you are mistaken. Please do not risk damage to your MB1.

It is possible to upgrade to F6 if you must replace the CPU with a i7-7700T but there is almost no advantage over the safe route of going to the 6700T with the existing BIOS. This is with the HI mobo. SI mobo already had upgraded BIOS and can take the 7700T CPU.

Hallo Erik!

Only one problem. 6700T In Russia, not for sale. NO STOCK
And the I7-7700T is available in large quantities in Moscow.
Is F6 BIOS compatible with 7700T?

If you mean upgrade the BIOS, answer is already given. If you mean upgrade the motherboard, you cannot do that. In any case, as I have said so many times, there is not enough advantage to BIOS upgrading to go to the trouble. My final word on this: if you have F5 BIOS it is worth upgrading** to i7-6700T CPU. If you have F6 or later BIOS, you can upgrade to i7-7700T CPU. For SSD, see the UMA. For RAM, more is better.

**worth upgrading is defined as when CPU usage is too high during your activity with the MB1. This will be the case if you have multiple monitors and/or CPU intensive software (CW Skimmer, JTDX etc). CPU high usage results in 'scratchy' receive audio, PTT delay, etc. If you have none of this, the expense of the upgrades is not worthwhile.

Thanks Erik for your help!
The problem was in a bad CPU 7700T.
I replaced the CPU from the seller.
The installation of the I7 7700 processor is complete. This is victory! The processor works with BIOS F6. This is now and I can confirm.
Did this upgrade help solve some performance problems - we'll see. I will report after a long testing.

Hi Igor!

could you share the F6 biost?
on the gigabyte side, F9 or more is available.

Hi Tamas!
I already had version F6 installed after buying the device in Expert Electronics.
I thought that I need to update the BIOS further. But it was a mistaken opinion. Version F6 perfectly supports modern processors.
Therefore, I do not have F6 file.
I think it is right for you to contact Roman in Expert Electronics.This will guarantee that you will receive the correct file for your version of the motherboard.

There appear now to be several MB1 owners who want to upgrade from the i5-6400T CPU but cannot action the UMA instruction for the i7-6700T because of a lack of availability of this processor.

1 I would advocate a thorough online search as your first choice. Quite often used i7-6700T CPUs can be found on eBay. Usually, these are actually not really used but have come out of unsold computers and hence are perfect. I bought mine this way, saving over 100 euro on the list price.

2 Nevertheless, the 6700T is becoming more scarce and hence the choice becomes the freely available i7-7700T. This necessitates a BIOS upgrade from F5 to F6. The F6 BIOS and instructions for the process of upgrading are at www.dropbox.com/s/9iclfjn36zsw4n7/BIOS.zip?dl=0

3 Several MB1 upgrades have now been done to F6. My given warning was the same as this one: you do it at your own risk. Whilst my instructions are proven to work, I accept no responsibility for any failure. Having read the instructions, if you feel ill-at-ease at the prospect of making the upgrade, do not do it.

Hi Erik!

thank you very much for the description.
I understand the warnings, the process is not simple, but can be done.

Hi, all!

I am successfully upgradeed the BIOS F5 to F6 version.

The Samsung PM981 NVMe SSD has also come in, it works and is fast.

B3A0177D-76DD-433C-B715-6DFD67FFA6A9.jpeg


the memory and the cpu update will be tomorrow, I7-7700T, this can be obtained.
the bios update was fast and easy as described.

in the ssd exchange, I used clonezilla usb pendrive and saved the image to nas and then I was back from there.
the whole process took about 1 hour
