Well my first point would be its not a X79 workstation motherboard we are working with, not exactly an apples to apples comparison. My second point would be the heat is so intense our boards are warping, how do you propose we raise the thermal limits in the software and avoid that from happening? You can't take something that can't take the heat now and add more to it, that is just asking for more problems.

If you want to believe that this will be fixed by a BIOS update you go ahead and wait for it. It was supposed to be released 2 months ago... I assure you Gigabyte knows this issue isn't a software fix, that is why the BIOS fix isn't released and its why they are avoiding the issue like the plague. If you want to fix the throttling the proper way put adequate cooling on the VRM's or risk premature board failure.

The guys in the link are saying the VRM sink isn't even lukewarm. Mine is the exact opposite. It is stupidly, retardedly, burns you finger instantly if you are dumb enough to touch it HOT.

Yup, last thing I remember was it was going trough verification, guess it failed.

I just wanted to show you the thread and I think the guys does an excellent job and they got it fixed. I don't want to kick the can down the road and hence I hope Gigabyte will fix this soon? But either way my vrm is not getting so hot I have only a quadcore. Currently I'm happy with my mainboard. I would appreciate a bios update though?

hi guys.

i have the ud5 and running 32 gig of ram

the dims i have are rated at 1866 but they only seem to be running at 1333



does anyone know how to change it that i can run it at the speed they are ment to pls?

i have done a small overclock but it seems to crash after a while BUT that also might be because i got cool and quiet on in the bios.

To get your memory running at rated speeds Do the following in BIOS:

Disable DRAM EOCP
Set memory multiplier to manual, x9.33
Enter the DRAM configurations menu and set the latencies to the factory standard on the RAM sticker/packaging
Make sure your system voltage control is set to manual
Manually set the DRAM voltage to the factory specs, most likely 1.5V
F10, save and exit.

If it doesn't post, go back into BIOS, make sure your changes are still there and bump the CPU/NB Voltage up one notch, then save, exit and reboot... that should do it for you.

As far as the minor overclock crashing your system that wouldn't be because of Cool n Quiet being on. When you try to get your ram set, check and write down all of your bios settings that aren't manual and post them here... If it isn't something fairly obvious there's a chance you have a hardware issue and I'm sure between all of us here we'll be able to help you troubleshoot it.

1) Use Spare Video card screws to just secure the heatsink better.

2) Add a fan to the VRM. I don't like this option because it fails both aesthetically and acoustically.

3) Put it under water. I don't love this, as the cost would end up, with fittings and the like, to be about $150. Also, the only WB I can find is the clear acrylic top, which does not go with my theme (black WC parts).

4) Replace the board with a UD5.


I think I will go with option 1 sometime soon. The real question is do I put the VRM under water or do I buy a UD5?

I have the UD5 Rev 1.1 and it's been a great performer for me. The troubles I thought I might have had brewing turned out not to be a motherboard temp problem, but rather a chassis fan wire going bad. For some reason that was causing the off readings in HWinfo I mentioned in a post earlier this morning (or perhaps yesterday?). Replaced the bad chassis fan, gave everything a thorough once over, air cleaned the whole tower, and watched everything like a hawk as I put it through a 15 iteration IBT run and a 2 hour run of prime95 without any flag raising readings or smells, lol.

In the long run, if you have either a 6 or 8 core (especially the 8 cores) and want to do some decent OCs (15% or above) you're probably going to be better served with just upgrading to the UD5 or the ASUS Sabertooth R2.0... they're definitely better boards at about the same price, and given the way Gigabyte has handled this for most of the people here with UD3s... personally, I'm with them and won't give another dime to Gigabyte.

Also, use rigbuilder ( http://www.overclock.net/lists/component/manage/type/RIG ) and enter what all you have in your tower, then place your rig into your signature so it's easier for people here to know what you're working with and be able to give you better advice, faster.

I am leaning this way. It seems ridiculous to watercool your VRM when only trying to do a modest overclock. I purchased this MB because of the looks. I'll admit it. My system is a work of art (will add pics soon). I spent a great deal of time on cable management and sleeving. I didn't do a "world class" job, but I did the best job I can do. Honestly, if I could get a black acetal top WB for the VRM I would buy it today, just because I could make it look good.

I would return the board today, if it weren't for the fact that an accident (involving a substance that is legal in my state) caused me to remove a PCIe video card (it was in the wrong slot) without releasing the clip, resulting in... well, you can guess. Ended up cutting all the header pins off and super-gluing the plastic part back on to cover the mistake.

I am thinking of buying a UD5 because:

1) Similar drivers, so less likelihood of a reinstall.

2) I can go over the blue with a black marker, I guess. Or mask it and paint just the blue white.

3) Similar layout for cables (not in the mood to recrimp and resleeve).

4) I have (personally) never had issues with GB. My board just won't OC like I want it too. If the UD5 works well, then why not go with it?

Thanks! I am a lurker by nature, as when I talk, I ramble and don't say much.

Well I'd say get to emailing them about it but I think you will find their "support" lacking. As Hellsrage said, It must not have passed validation. Its over 2 months overdue.

I THINK my north bridge runs about the same as my CPU. They throttle at 63C. There are aftermarket NB coolers that might help. Some are heat pipe towers and some have fans.
