Just a suggestion, but you could try the Gigabyte UK forum. They are usually pretty helpful there and you may find what you are looking for.

if anyone needs older bios, send me a message.

I have f5, f6c. f6e, f6k, f6f, f7.

Just downloaded F7, will see how it goes. I have been using f5 for awhile now, has worked the best for me. Will see if F7 does anything special.

¿What does "Add VRM MOS protection" exactly implies?

Running F7 on my UD3..... Seems to be working fine.

From my testing it seems to limit the max amount of voltage you can put before it restarts the PC. So if your overclocking this is something you dont want since I can only get 4.5ghz out of my chip with this bios compared to 5ghz with f6c

In overclocked state, when current requirement of CPU becomes so high that it reaches close or exceeds to the max limit what VRM can provide, then VRM's temp becomes extreme high because it reaches the max operational limit. This situation can blow up the whole VRM. To save VRMs from this type of heat damage, there is a command needs to be executed by BIOS that CPU frequency and voltage must throttle down to the safest value so that stress on VRMs may be reduced. I believe this is VRM Mos Protection. But I don't know why they implemented this again because our Bios had already a feature named 'Hardware Thermal Protection' which also seems to save components from heat damage.

Thank you for that information.
On that note tho, after I went from F6 to F7 it lowered the amount of voltage given to my RAM, even tho it was setted to 1.500v it only gave 1.485, I had to manually increased 0.15 to make my system stable.

Mine is the same way had to bump it up some to be at 1.5v. F5 BIOS did the same thing also.

This new BIOS has been RUBBISH for me, I can't do any OC that I did before, OC that was stable for 3 days till I updated the BIOS. I'm going back to F6.
