post #3731 of 12377
I have the UD5 - what's the 'c' for in F6? I went f5 to f9 but if I can clock higher for next to no effort I might as well. Downloading the f6 I found on gigabyte site now.

edit: UD3 oops, won;t be flashing that sucker.

AFAIK there is no difference between the rev 1.1 and the rev 1.2. 'cept for the fact that comes with newer BIOS.

UEFI.

Bah, I'm old school and I prefer the normal BIOS.
post #3735 of 12377
I wonder how long until they release the UD5 and UD7 with UEFI

Im also concidering in buying a new board if gigabyte makes a new amd board.

1.48 to 1.42 vdroop is really really good. Most motherboards with LLC don't even get close to that, and they have the positive voltage spike, which can be just as bad. Just manually add more voltage so your voltage is where you want it under heavy load, that is standard practice when running under water. Just make sure you aren't burning up your VRM with heat.

im not that happy with it. on idle voltages, or under load without a drop, is still do have a voltage of 1,47. its not a stable voltage on 1,42V, so i cant just turn it up. the effective voltage at 1,51 volts wil be i believe somewhere in the vicinity of 1,44/1,45 volts, with spikes to its normal voltage of 1,5V.
does anybody know how far i can turn my 8150 up to with a voltage of 1,45V? because thats how far i can get without blowing my cpu up (if 1,51V is a safe voltage. i hope it can do higher, but i havent researched that yet)

I'm also not happy with turning my busspeed up, because my vengeance memory wont allow overclocking -_- i hate that memory but it looks so good. i can only play with my cpu voltage and my cpu multiplier. or are there other voltages that i need to worry about? i have lost the art of overclocking a bit... i didnt go as deep with this cpu as i did with my athlon 2 x4 640.

Investigating the windows 8 upgrade and I find from the upgrade program that:
Quote:
"Secure boot requires firmware that supports UEFI v2.3.1 Errata B and has the Microsoft Windows Certification Authority in the UEFI signature database"

1) This is referring to the order and space in which windows components are loaded, correct?

2) Is secure boot worth it?

3) Do any BIOS'es for these boards have this UEFI 2.3.1b version??
