So what does everyone think about the UD5? is it as bad as the reviews say on newegg? should I take the chance of buying it or choose something else? are any owners here having the board die only after a few months,or having the bios get stuck in a boot loop or been denied an rma I heard that gigabyte did not even put serial numbers on the board and are denieing people there warranties these boards are so bad

waltcujo,

I have had a 990FXA-UD5 rev 1 (no LLC) motherboard since last summer, only had some short term problems with the BIOS available then, has been running good since last November, only a bit of an issue with that version's voltage droop on processor, since worked around OK. Figured out how to run it nicely due to reading this forum from the 1st page. The tips & advice from the excellent experienced overclockers here is most helpful.
I think I would have bought the 990FXA-UD3 motherboard if I had read this forum first, though.
Also, I have had very good experience for many years with quality control from Gigabyte's motherboards, this one is my 4th one I have owned.

have a great day,

The only problem I ever really heard about the UD5's was the Vdroop/boost but as noted LLC new boards have LLC so its a moot issue.

I would look at this page. Unless your specific needs require somthing the UD5 has the UD3 is cheaper and a very stable board.

I have UD5, even it doesn't have LLC, My board is able to make my X6 perfectly stable at 4.1Ghz at 1.456v on Load. Yes I have to put 1.525v in BIOS and there is 0.069v but it doesn't make me feel bad because I let the CnQ remain enabled. Not a single issue with thisboard till yet.

How you get ram stable? if i use high fsb then i cant get stable memory, but with lower fsb and same timing and mhz is memory stable. What voltage i must increase?

Edit : wrong thread sorry


I was about to buy the UDH5 for a build I am planning this weekend, then they come out with UP5 with thunderbolt ports.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128559


1) will I ever use thunderbolt?
2) Will I be able to buy an expansion card to place on the UD5H or does it need a chip on the mainboard?

lutsar,

As I mentioned in my last post, I read this entire forum for tips & tricks to optimize my UD5 motherboard's performance. Start at page 1 for help so you can get yours to perform how you like it. Make sure you keep your CPU cool!

Overclocking my stable but I need to know how the program can be as high FSB stable with no memory of anything after the same stable with lower FSB and the same memories timinguna MHz and is stable.
post #3380 of 12377
4ghz 14x286fsb 9-9-9-27 1587mhz memory not stable
4ghz 14x286 9-9-9-27 1125mhz memory is stable
cpu stock speed 9-9-9-27 1600mhz memory is stable

Why my 4ghz memory is not stable and cpu stock speed same timing and stuff is?
