I am convinced that the bios is overvolting the NB/ HT/ cpu and not reporting the correct voltage and temperature values

Question for you guys, I have a 970-UD3 and want some better ram for Benching. Trying to crack the 15 second mark on super pi 1M. I'm running a 960t be at 4.3ghz.
Can I use the magical Samsung green 30nm sticks or should I get something else?

The samsung ram is amazing, especially for the price, but overclocks are never guaranteed. If you want guaranteed high speeds mhz, you'd have to get something rated at those high speeds, which can get pretty expensive.

Q: When should I update my BIOS?
A: It is recommended you update your BIOS only to support something that normally wouldn't be supported, or to fix a bug/problem with the current BIOS.

If it ain't broke don't fix it.

My thoughts normally, but I have noticed my LLC when set on extreme is a full 0.1v higher than the set clock (1.375v ) under load. Is it supposed to get that much leeway? When it is on regular it is only about +.025 v. From reading the descriptions of the newer Bios it doesn't seem to add any features that would affect that though.

That is how extreme and regular LLC work. Too bad we don't have more LLC options like high and stuff.

Hello, I currently have a BIOS issue with my motherboard.

I have the GA-970A-D3, Rev 1.1, and I believe I originally had the the F6 BIOS. After issues with a few applications running at about 1/9th the speed that they should, I tried to flash to F11, which I think is the latest one (feel free to correct me if I am wrong about anything in any of my posts)

Now here's where I think I dun goofed. Being the silly uninformed person that I am, I actually tried to do it via @BIOS.
And although it appeared to have worked initially, my motherboard does not seem to be able to load my OS anymore. It tries to, but something is stopping it midway through.

I'm not sure what the problem is, so I wondered if anyone here would be able to help?
