Latest BIOS is fine, that was only a few isolated incidents and on older BIOSes. They may have even been set-up?

You'll be fine, OC away, keep your VRM's cool though! thumb.gif

i have the X79-UD7, its been a pleasure to use, no issues what so ever. ive OC'd my 3930K up to 4.7GHz with ease and it runs stable with no problems.

dont be afraid to overclock on this board, just makesure you have alot of airflow over the PWM heatsink. Having over 1200CFM moving through my case is really usefull with this board, especialy because of the rather small heatsinks.

I do have a friend who's UD7 blew a power choke after an OC to 4.6 but i have made the same overcock on mine with the same setings with no problems.

Best board i have ever had by far.

Hi, found a special price over this board for around 300€ ( around 400$), but I'm quite torn atm. This one seems a great card for a long term build that would allow to go through 2,3, and 4-way SLI. Even if I'm not in the hurry to build it, I know this board is in EOL, and have great specs. Would it be overkill to buy it even if I'm not a mad overclocker ?

The long-term goal with this board is to have it fully watercooled (CPU/MB/GPU) as the XL-ATX form factor will impose a case allowing enough watercooling space.
