LOL, I have posted for one of these in some of the private sections and you are the first one to notice biggrin.gif
I think I should try it at least. Looks like AMD can be really fun frozen, and I can afford to get more chips. I will still have an Intel setup but won't do much until Ivy.

So i just ordered a ud5 biggrin.gif know about the voltage before hand. Any good high speed memory play well with it? Any suggestions would be nice, im pretty much just swaping sig rig motherboard out, and hooking up my other 470.

Anyone use SuperTalent Speed series (Elpida Hypers) with these boards?

awesome UD7!!!!!!!!!
post #686 of 12377
Hey guys, just installed a UD7. Im having a issue with the cpu voltage. I set it to 1.3 in the bios and i save the settings ans restart. Then i see that the cpu is getting 1.36 volts via pc health status. Its like a reverse vdroop. Anyone having the same issue?

So persay its set so you set the min volts you want your mb to handle say 1.475 then you overclock so it scales the volts with the load higher the load the higher the voltage?
post #688 of 12377
I set the vcore to 1.3 volts but the motherboard gives it 1.36. Maybe the voltage sensors are broken.

You're getting Vboost at idle. Try applying load (Prime 95 or similar) and see what the voltage does then.

Dear people,

I'm currently in the progress of reviewing the UD7 for XSReviews.co.uk.

My findings are very similar to most of yours:

- unlockable CPU's that don't work well;
- high vdroop / vdrop (this could be due to chip design for Bulldozer?);
- freezes on restart (the RAID screen would hang if I would try any buttons for BIOS / boot options etc., or sometimes at random)

First, I'd like to propose a fix to the Windows 64-bit RAID installation issues you guys have been having. There's a simple fix to this:
- Obtain a Windows installation disk with ONLY 64-bit versions (regardless of type, Home or Ultimate, as long as it's 64-bit).
--> If there are only 64-bit versions available for install, Windows Setup will load the 64-bit platform automatically and will not give the weird "unsigned drivers" issue when trying to load the 64-bit RAID driver from the Gigabyte support disk (or any correct version that you obtained, for that matter)
This method worked fine for me.

Second, I'm also looking at the unlock issues. I'm using a Phenom II X2 555 that easily unlocks to X4 B55 at 3.80GHz (one of the cores has issues >3.85GHz).
Any X3 setup (be it core 1,2,3 or 1,2,4 activated) works splendid overclocked under load. Unlocking the CPU to X4 on stock speed instantly freezes the rig when running stress tests (like Prime95, LinX). This is an issue that needs attention.

Thirdly, I'm well aware of the random freezes at POST / BOOT. This especially happens when RAID is activated and is plain annoying as you need time your button pushing very well in order not to freeze the system.
This supposedly gets fixed by the F4b BIOS. I have updated but not tested thoroughly yet.

Fourth, my findings on vdroop / vdrop:
Quote:
F4b (X3 3.8GHz, DDR3-1600) (vCPU 1.45) (vRAM 1.65)
Idle:
vCPU 1.488 // 1472
vRAM 1.632

Load (Prime95 Blend):
vCPU 1.440
vRAM 1.632

Load (Prime95 heat/pcons):
vCPU 1.424 // 1.440
vRAM 1.632

Load (Prime95 small FFT's):
vCPU 1.424
vRAM 1.648

I'm currently in a mail exchange with one of the UK Gigabyte tech support people. He/she is also forwarding these issues to the engineers.

For cross-reference, here is the Xtreme Systems thread on the Gigabyte 990FX-series:

People report similar problems and try to come up with fixes.
