With your board, u can count under 1.5V for about 4.8 - 4.9Ghz 24/7 and maybe about 5.0Ghz for benchmarking. Vishera is better and more forgiving for overclocking then buldozer.

Thanks for the reply, I didn't expect so much, I'll try in a few weeks when I'll got more time.

Hi fellow overclockers. I read much about problems with Rev. 3.0 boards. Espacialy 970A - UD3 boardand problems with overclocking, that users cant disable APM ( they changed the name in HCP or something like that ). Im looking in to buy UD5, so does anyone have the Rev 3.0 to share experience ??
post #4424 of 12382
The only "problem" is the AMP (HCP?) , or lack of it . Without that on my Rev 3.0 Im unable to do anything with the CPU from the BIOS aside from disabling dynamic throttling , cool &quiet ,etc. With the RAM I can put it in an "extreme" mode, but all that does is lock the ram timing to the factory specs instead of relaxing them automatically.

The board and BIOS its self is nice and fortunately with my current setup I don't NEED to OC ...but it is ver frustrating that I can not until another BIOS is released.

Side note: You can via Overdrive, however I do not prefer this and It only allows for multiplier OC and generic voltage tweaks.

Summary: The board is awesome, the current BIOS has handicapped it!
post #4425 of 12382
Do u have UD 3 or UD5 ? Maybe UD5 and UD7 does not have that handicappe !
post #4426 of 12382
I have the UD3 , Revision 3.0
post #4427 of 12382
Did u contact Gigabyte, will there be BIOS relase wich will fix this ?
post #4428 of 12382
Someone mentioned a few pages back about contacting them. During lunch today I went to the website but in my laziness did not see an email address, only a phone number so I have not contacted them.

I really hope a release that actually utilizes the functionality of the board will be coming out. I have no idea what the timeline would be though.

I've been talking to tech support about rev 3.0 ud3 problems and they are looking into it now. Now we wait.

hey guys i just purchased this mobo and started ocing with my current build

the weird problem i have is when i put my ram in in 2x2 in slots 1 and 2 (out of 4) it detects the ram which is 4gb total, but in cpuz it says only single channel.

so i take out the ram put it in slots 3 and 4 and it still says single channel in cpuz but still detects 4gb ram total

so i put it in slots 1 and 3 and voila it says dual channel in cpuz and total of 4gbs

is it suppose to work like that? or am i missing something?
