Tried that too, but it's still not working. I actually made it to the desktop and was able to launch AOD. BSOD'd almost right away. 0x000001e which I think is a cpu code. Gonna stick with F6c for now since I have no issues with it at the moment. thumb.gif

It wasn't the PSU. Its clearly the mobo just not willing to start anymore. Going to have to go through a long painful RMA process.

Yep, i'm back to F6c too. F6e doesn't overclock as well and gives random BSOD and reboots. I'm really surprised Gigabyte chose to release F6e officially but not F6c......they got that one backwards.

Erm, with boards as fickle as these, yes you do need to apply an update when it comes out.

If these boards had zero issues and every function worked properly then i'd agree with you but every board seems to be borked in a different (fundamental) way.

Right now we're beta testers and every bios needs tested.

Thanx for your time smile.gif
I have managed a 4.4ghz on the Thuban.Ran the benchies ok , also played Dirt 3 & Forged Alliance without a trip for hours. Couldn't get it higher and stable though. I guess if i turned Mem & NB down it may do it but the performance hit is too good to give away with 3ghz nb and 1600 Mem. It's a happy camper at 4.2 ghz. Yesty the weather was cool and rain , ambient temp around 16C. At 4.2 & 1.55v (high , i know but ends up around 1.45 to 1.5ish with vdroop) it idled at 23C & load was 37C (gotta love a dirty great big chunk of copper for cooling). I see quite a variation in vdroop but aparently it is all ok according to Gigabyte (i read somehere)

I didnt say 'with these boards' i said it as a blanket statement to his 'im a few updates behind' in that a BIOS isnt like Windows and can suffer from NOT being updated. My DFI 790FX has the shipped BIOS and has been working fine for over 3.5 years 24/7. Which is what quantifies my claim of "you dont need to update simply cause there is one there".

If you're going to make blanket statements in threads for specific boards (which are having problems driven by poor bios) then your statement will be out of context and that will make it wrong.

Revision question - I'm considering either a UD3 or a UD5. From what I have seen the 1.2 is the latest revision for the UD3, Can't find anything on the UD5 - does anyone know what revision I should be looking for with the UD5?
