Summer doesn't matter, it's also summer here in Slovenia about 32°C and my NB reaches 45°C max @ idle. Yours is way too high.

I'm still on the F3 bios, which gives some massive vdroop. Under full load w/ Linx or OCCT, I'm seeing 1.51 Vcore. I'm a little disappointed that I can't seem to reach 1800 Mhz mem. Although my ram will handle 1.9V (Super Talent recommends no more than 1.85V for daily usage on these sticks), it gets a little unstable around 1780 Mhz @ 6-6-6-17 even with 1.85 V. Hyper's are awesome, I'm pretty sure I could reach 2000 Mhz if I loosened the timings a bit.

Still playing with it to see what I can eek out of the ram. But I can say this 1090 isn't scoring as well as my 965 did w/ a slightly lower ram oc of 1744 Mhz. I lost nearly 120 MB/s in the Winsat mem score. Not sure as to why, it should be pushing more at the same timings (but higher freq) than the 965 could. Odd. :/

Thanks.

One more thing though.
Should I use the SB950 or the Marvell chip?

I'll be using 3 SSDs and no Raid at all.

I couldnt get a stable overclock with f3, flashed to f4 running 4.0 with 1860 memory timings at 9-9-9-241t running stability tests as we speak
meh bsod as im typing blah im gonna try 10-10-10-24-1t and this is the gskill value ram at 1.6 volts.

Nice overclock btw.
Wtb better memory lol

Thanks! Try giving them 1.7-1.75V. Try everything else first, and then if you absolutely have to, then loosen the timings.

You might be able to find some of these Super Talent Project X's, or Speed series. They do come up for sale, very infrequently, but they do. I have dibs on the only set of Project X's I know of that may come up for sale soon (gonna need 8GB for 8 cores of BD under full load to prevent bottlenecking the cpu, I'm sure). But I can tell you, they don't go for cheap.

If anything, expect to pay anywhere from $200-280 for 4GB...which was a bit more than they went for new (on the top end figure). You nearly have to kill someone to get them to relinquish any ram w/ Elpida Hyper's IC's. Unless they recently invested in a Sandy Bridge, where they can't make use of them.

You can find them (Hypers) in a few different EOL models. Like older Kingston Hyper X's, Corsair Dom. GT's, Mushkin Redlines, a few models of A-data, and as mentioned earlier...2 models from STT. It's pretty easy to spot Hyper equipped sticks. They are still the only sticks you'll see rated at really low timings over 2000 Mhz. Eg: mine are rated at 7-7-7-21 @ 2000 Mhz.

If you ask Gigabyte tech like I did then they will give you the latest beta bios for this board and that is F3c.
I have had this version of the bios for over a week but you will not notice anything different.
There is no vdroop on the UD3 board, it is v boost and is by design.

I believe it reaches that temps because the NB heatsink doesn't get any airflow due to Noctua cpu fan being to high and separate from the motherboard. Will try to check temp with another tool also. Dunno where in the bios or some temp monitoring software i read that same temps that you have... but the temp in the heat sink seems above 10 to 15 degrees above that.

@Bloodcore
Didn't read ya! XD
My beloved UD3 doesnt have a marvell controller so i use the integrated in the SB950. Sorry i can't help you with that.
