can you re-flash the BIOS?

I am going to try re-flashing it today. One more thing, should I stop worrying about oc'ing with the turbo ratio and just use the cpu clock ratio. The idea of only needing the oc when required intrigued me through the use of turbo mode.
post #14 of 19
yes the turbo ratio is not really how most people OC the GB boards, because there are two ways. The easiest thing to do is set Real Time Ratio Change in OS to enabled, and it will disable turbo and the rest of the settings. Then set the Cpu ratio.

I'm sorry to be blunt here, but you have not got a clue what you are talking about. This is the 3rd time I've seen you post bad or negligent advice with respect to this motherboard.

Real Time Ratio Change is so that you can change the cpu multiplier in your operating system, ie, from your desktop using a program such as EasyTune. Go look at your manual, it's on page 39.

Turbo ratio change IS how most people are overclocking, or so I have read. It's how I'm doing it for sure, and I am stable at 4.8.

The cpu is designed to work with turbo, it also allows the cpu to downclock at idle or very low load, saving power and wear. Why would you not want to take advantage of this? I suppose if I imagine hard enough I can come up with a scenario.....nope, I was wrong.

I'm also curious why you care which box the mobo comes in? Mine says version 1.3 right on the label sticker.

dude, listen this is a forums, i have helped over 100 people personally OC their gigabyte LGA1155 boards. i wrote the OC guide, and i have been thanked over probably 1000 times publicly or privatly.

Enabling Real time ratio change in OS disabled the turbo ratios as well as the TDC and TDp requirements, it makes it a lot easier than just going and disabling every single one.

You sir have no freaking clue what you are talking about and who you are talking to. GIGABYTE implements turbo mode two ways on sandy bridge. Either by setting those 4 turbo ratios, or by disabling those and setting the CPu Ratio, in affect both ways affect the CPU ratios. I wrote the book on gigabyte sandy bridge overclocking. Don't come in here and tell me not to post stuff. If people don't want my help then i wouldn't get 1-3 PMs a day asking for my advice.

This isn't HardOCP, don't act like a 12 year old. And don't tell people not to post stuff, there is no point in a forum. i see that you contribute nothing other than to attack me, so i have a feeling either you got banned from one of these fourms and you have grudge against me b/c of who I am, or you just have bad attitude, neither of which are welcomed.

Poeple dont' take advantage of the downclocking, because it lower effciency on light load applications, which are teh majority of applications. Download the Intel Turbo monitor tool and it will show you how fast your CPu is running, it takes an odd amount of load to push the turbo ratios to their max.

Also downclocking is a result of EIST and C1E and teh C3/C6 states, they lower the voltage when the CPu is downclocked, with many CPUs this causes an issue as the boards picking a voltage for different speeds on the fly, above 4.5-4.8ghz it usually doesn't work well. Then you need to get into the realm of setting the offset voltage for full load, that isn't somthing a new overclocker can do.

it is hard to set up a nice OC that works with downclocking properly, most overclockers bypass it all together, and don't want their systems running slower at idle.

Now the power consumption at idle versus load is HUGEEEEEEEEE. So you might only pull 60watts idle at 4.5ghz all the time, but then you can pull 150W load. With the downclocking it would be more like 30-40watts idle and 150 load.


keto you have rev 1.3, your has a red box then, that UD3H rev 1.3 is new, and it has PCi-E 3.0 switches, and probably a slightly different electrical hardware somewhere else, and that is why what i recommend doesn't work for you. I have the same board and revision as the OP.

Go look in the official Gigabyte 67/68 thread to see what I've contributed in the past week, since I received and have been working on this mobo. I'm new here (actually, I'm not, but I was inactive and apparently my name was dropped at some point), but I'm not new to overclocking or tweaking or testing. I've written hardware reviews for 2 sites that you know the names of, though that's fairly ancient history now. Some of my findings don't coincide with yours. I'll stop posting about it. Feel free to have the last word.

I'm not 12, and I'm not banned anywhere.

I feel like if the turbo boost wasnt useful, Gigabyte wouldn't have put it in there. Being an engineer, it makes perfect sense to me. They are making more and more things that turn the power on only when it is needed and not just there all of the time wasting unneeded resources.

well turbo is part of how it works now, every board has it, you can't not have it in a BIOS. i am just saying there are other ways to OC and lower the ratio without using those 4 turbo multipliers. In affect setting just the CPu ratio is automatically updating those 4 cores to that speed, those 4 individual slots are for if you want each core to have a different max turbo multiplier, like at stock.
