The revision of the board will matter. I think I had a rev.1 and it could play stable all day with my 8350 at 5ghz. I had to put a small 80mm fan over the VRM heatsink though, those suckers got HOT

Many people claim that they can get a stable 5ghz, not that I don't believe them, but they have never shown proof either when asked.

I believe a more realistic figure is 4.4-4.7ghz.

But I am no OC'n wizard.

Sure, but no game is ever going to come remotely close to what just a standard IBT bench will do. I guess i should say it was "stable enough"
post #10846 of 12377
yes maybe my experiense was with 4ghz overclock without avx high i made stable @ 1.168v but with avx high i got my overclock stable @ 1.2v

Nice work DampMonkey thumb.gif

Like I said, not many are willing to show proof. But you obvisiouly are happy enough, and you sure should be, to show off your great work.

This does get me wondering if my rev1.0 would be better for putting my 8350 on or just keep it on my rev4.0

the one i ordered is a rev 4 . it has the heatsink pipe added..is that version bad for 8350?

I would not say "Bad", it is as good as any other board around for a similar price.

It is just that it seems when Gigabyte done their first release, rev1.0, it was a great board for the price. Now it is not such a stand out product, maybe it was to push more sales for the UD5 and UD7.

i can only get 4.4 stable.

if i put it 4.5+ it will boot and everything looks fine.. even can run prime95 for hours with no issues..

but if you run hwinfo64 you will notice that instead of 4.5+ you are only at 3.7 because the board is throttling the cpu, due to over TDP.
