Look what Gigabyte does to aspiring overclockers! lachen.gif

Seriously, you have a good undervolter! 1.15v for 3.5 is very good! But, you should at least run 4Ghz. You can run it undervolted at 1.28v (inside windows) for sure. Since you have good undervolter, probably for a bit less too.

I'm using SLI config. Even 4.0Ghz won't be enough I believe. Why should I run at least 4.0Ghz? Isn't 3.5 enough biggrin.gif

Yeah, they just discourage people to overclock on their boards with their incompetence lol

Actually, its not funny at all to be honest man. Its kinda sad and you should feel sorry for a company that is in the business for years and they still can't manufacture a decent board...

Nope, IMO 4Ghz is very slow. that's because i am used to at least 4.8GHz. Never ran the chip at stock. In SLI your CPU will be the bottleneck even at 4.0Ghz to be honest. It depends on the title of course but if you play Crysis 3 for example, your CPU will definitely be the bottleneck.

You cannot get a deal with your retail store?

Wauw, isn't there anything you can do? I mean, its a bad board and utterly useless... they HAVE to reason with you. Isn't there some complaint you can file in order for them to resolve your problem then?

If you look at my memory you will see my issue. It is only running at DDR3-1337 and not at DDR3-2400.
I have tried to go in and adjust this is BIOS, but it will not let me. I have also tried with Gigabyte's Easy Tune APP. Is there a better way?

I know that my processor may be limiting me a bit and plan to upgrade it in the near future to a FX-8350.



I also have an ASRock 970 Performance Fatlity edition motherboard as well and could return to using it as the DDR3-2400 was working in it with out any issues, but figured upgrading to 990fx would be better.

In the BIOS there should be an option to load XMP profile. Look better, i can't believe there isn't any.

There's nothing inherently wrong with MB. It's well built, has spare BIOS and relatively rich with options (for the time it came out) but my old ga-890fxa-UD5 v 2,1 beats it in available options. Only real problem are relatively poor BIOS options and inaccurate (when overclocked) sensors. Otherwise, with some TLC and added fans to NB and VRM, my FX 6350 is running comfortably at over 4.8 GHz 24/7 pretty loaded most of the time. I can comfortably leave it to simmer some HD video compiling whole night with 90% load without a hitch. Had this 6350 up to 5GHz but 1.520v is not best thing for a Vishera. It may run for a day or two but than it may start throwing tantrum third day even on idle.
