And it bsod'd when the windows logo started to appear. Thus meaning that it rebooted and wanted to do a system repair, (keyboard wouldn't work to select anything else) which of course failed. Tried to run memtest but again, I couldn't select to boot from cd or the USB-thingy. mad.gif
I've tried 1 stick only. No change there. So I ended up going to town to fetch a 4GB stick of Apacer 1333MHz 9cl. Seems to be working fine now (the keyboard works even), BUT everytime I reboot it says something about it had to reset to default settings, because the overclock was unstable. I find that funny because I run at stock settings now.. kookoo.gif

Should I try to download the F2 BIOS again? Maybe it's corrupt somehow..
btw The RAM that I have are not on the compatibility list for this board. But that doesn't explain why it kinda worked before..

(For the 1st time ever I will have to apologize for any spelling errors and/or my english redface.gif)

I had the issue where it took me back to default, fixed with F5B bios, please PM me for it

This has probably been discussed before but i'm just not gona go through 50ish pages tongue.gif Response will be gladly apreciated

Sounds a bit high on idle. Have you tried pushing down the heatsink? I have around 45C. Goes up to about 60 under load.

Well, I don't think it will fit in the PCI-EX1 slot. Northbridge heatsink seems to be in the way. But I suppose you can put it one of the other PCI-EX slot. smile.gif

why dont you just do the mod?

BTW yea the VRm heatsink gets very hot, i think its because of the chip-set being there as well adding a lot of heat. Its not connected by heatpipe, instead through direct contact.

I'd do the mod once I know Gigabyte won't be doing anything to fix it. Time to bring out some sub zero cooling. Screen shots will be up later.

On another note, six days since I opened a support ticket on GGTS, still no reply.
post #578 of 12377
All I got back from GGTS was a one liner that "its supposed to be that way"

Well I've explained that because of the issue, my CPU is not stable. This is a problem with the motherboard and if it isn't fixed I will be getting a complete refund on the motherboard.
post #580 of 12377
ok well i did the mod and now i can report, scope shots are coming soon.

Anyways So when you do the mod, you set a resistor either at
0K(standard)(Vcore droop on, CPUNB droop off)
25K(Vcore droop on, CPUNB droop off)
75K(Vcore droop off, CPUNB droop off)
100K(Vcore droop off, CPUNB droop off)

That explains why at stock the CPUNB voltage rises under load.

Anyways so when i do the mod, i set lets say 1.40v and the automatically it sets (75mv higher) 1.475v on boot, and then 1.50v under load.

That offset is controlled by the FB/COMP voltage feedback error loop or through the BIOS, which is what they control through the BIOS and how LLC is controlled on Intel systems. So they can control LLC through that.

Anyways so that is how it is with my mod done.

if someone wants to know how to do it for the UD5 let me know. 1 more thing, this mod is excellent for subzero OC!!!
