Actually that thread is not real helpful. rolleyes.gif

Or maybe this feature just isn't working, cause it doesn't do any of the things in that thread or the one linked in it.

Well all i can say is you need a flash drive formatted to fat32, put the bios file on in, plug it in, enter BIOS, press F8 to bring up Qflash, and navigate to the file. If that isn't working maybe try using a different USB port or even a different flash drive if you can. This process worked flawless for me so idk.

I checked the timings displayed in BIOS for all three settings with timings set to auto. Every number was identical. Unless the value displayed in BIOS is not correct, I still have no idea what this setting does.

All I want to know is why SpeedFan is reading temps wrong and not controlling fans either. Then I'm set.

edit:
X79 was just recently added.. these boards may take awhile.

I wonder if the 2nd has different timings, I actually didn't check the timings. The speed was the same for both profiles.

Thank you for the confirmation! I am leaning heavily towards this MB. I also like the PRO and Deluxe Asus boards (especially the Fan control software), but am scared by the terrible customer service I'm hearing about.

Can you comment on how good the fan control software is on the Gigabyte UD5?

To barkeater: the VirtuMVP software essentially uses your discrete GPU and the CPU's on-chip GPU together to supposedly improve on standard VSync. If you hate tearing (which I do), you'll typically turn on VSync in a game, which then limits the entire game/render pipeline to 60Hz (for a typical LCD).

VirtualVsync allows the game/render pipeline to run as fast as it can, but somehow makes sure only fully rendered frames get sent to the monitor (eliminating tearing, but allowing higher than 60fps game processing).

HyperFormance goes a step further. It lets the game run as fast as it can, but tracks rendering times and drops rendering altogether for frames the software thinks won't be rendered. So you could potentially get the game processing hundreds of frames per second of game info, while only 60fps go completely through the rendering stages and end up on the monitor.

The whole point of it all is to get input and run the game as fast as possible while only rendering what you will see every 1/60th of a second (or 1/120th if you have a 120Hz monitor). It doesn't actually render more fps, but is supposed to make the game more responsive to user input/muliplayer updates.

At any rate, I have a 27" monitor with 2560x1440 resolution and I 'have' to connect it to my discrete card. iMode is where you connect to the onboard connectors, dMode is where you connect to the discrete connectors. I needed confirmation that dMode would work with this board so I could make sure I could use the features with my monitor.

Thanks again for the info!

Can you also comment on whether the VirtuMVP makes your games feel more 'responsive' as the software is intended to do? And how good is the fan control software?

Thanks for this, it fixed my mouse not working in the UEFI, haven't checked to see if I can use the "unlocked" BIOS on my 6950 yet but if it works I'll be sure to report back!
