Very informative thread, and great review at start, Sin. I'm planning a new build soon, still dithering about components although beginning to lean towards Ivy Bridge chip.

Which ASUS board were you contemplating?
I think the reason is because ASUS is charging way too much. Also GB has extremely high build quality on their main line(UD3H, D3H, UD5H) which competes with ROG quality. That is one thing GB does extremely well, some motherboard makers will build boards with cheaper parts and the same features, but after a few years the durablity will start to show. GB's Ultra durable thing really is a legit thing. GB's OC and Voltage reg this round is also extremely strong even in the cheap boards like the D3H. I think the D3H is excellent for BCLK OC, some boards are better tuned because they are more basic.

I don't know if they're problems, I just saw heat going up to like 75C and wasn't comfortable with it. I'll consider reseating. When I'm playing a fairly demanding game the temps don't really go over 60C so I feel like it's not that bad. My goal was 4GHz and if I can get that at around 60C under normal use then I figure I'm not doing that bad.
Hey man, i would remount, but anyways if you are happy with it then that is great!! GOod work man, everyone has to start from somewhere. Also you are aware that you can get a new CPU if you break yours from OC right? Intel has a $20-25 no questions OC warranty now.

I'm satisfied with what I've got but cooler is always better, I don't want to do it now but I'll keep reseating in mind for the future. I have overclocked in the past but things were far more simple back then, all I had to do before was raise my fsb by a few mhz and no worry about voltages or anything else. So I'm kind of a beginner all over again. I'm not going to push the CPU hard so I don't think I'll get the insurance.

i get same issue , 4x 4gb ripjaws , nothing works except single channel mode in slots 1and 3 . nothing can be put in 2 or 4 slot , anyone else have a thought on this ? is bios not auto detecting and setting up dual channel ? can it be forced ?

UPDAtED 5/16/12

just a follow up to my original mem problem ( channel B slots worked , channel A did not, code 15 with constant beeping ) . so i popped out cpu and behold a funny looking pin in upper right area , got rma for board ( refund ) and ordered another ,. TODAY i got new board , just popped in the board and cpu , stuck mem in all four slots and bingo , it boots, no codes .

it is my belief that the spring tension in one of the socket's pins was inadequate ( the portion that handles mem ). i had inspected the socket thoroughly before i put my cpu in and did not see the wimpy looking pin i saw when i removed it . i can only assume the cpu pressure showed the culprit .

i still love this board , even with a little setback of having to run memory in only channel b for a week now ...

Redownloading, and re-extracting worked. Very odd.

I'll post tomorrow after I'm able to get all the drivers installed and use it a bit. For now I've had other things to do.

Also, I only have a 3770. I have no plans to overclock (guess I'm on the wrong forum lol).

Hey guys, I got my UD3H a while ago now but haven't had time to build yet.

I just thought I'd ask what drivers from the website or from the driver disk I need to install to get up an running well. (I'm mainly concerned about the chipset and sata drivers as I haven't dealt with SSDs before and this will be my first build with one).

Is the driver disk that came with the board enough to get me started or should I just download and install all the drivers from the Gigabyte website?

Cheers for any help you guys can provide.

2oz PCB also isn't something normally done. I know ROG boards do have this, but the rest of the mainstream asus lineup might not, it is expensive b/c of price of copper, but it also allows you to not heatsink some MOSFETs like on the UD3H.

why is the ud5 mosfets on the top portion of the board sinked and the ud3 not?

I thought it was to save money.

You'll want to Install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers from here LINK. That the newest one.

Then from the Gigabyte driver page LINK you'll want to download and install the following:

Realtek Function Driver
Intel Management Engine Interface
Intel INF Installation
Intel LAN Driver
Intel USB 3.0 Driver

**You can skip the Atheros LAN driver if you don't plan on using it. the top LAN port on the motherboard is the Intel one and is better from what I hear.

Skip Intel Rapid Storage Tech because you already got that from the Intel website

Skip Marvell stuff unless you plan on using the Marvell Sata ports. You want to use the Intel Sata ports because they're better.

Skip Intel VGA Driver unless you plan on using the Integrated graphics.

Edit: Oh and if you want to use all the creative audio software it can only be found on the driver CD that came with the board

I just wanted to comment that you don't need the f6flpy "diskette" files from this page, I only downloaded the STOR one and that was all I needed. They tell you on the page to get both but it's not required unless maybe you're trying to make a floppy disk. This had me confused so if I can help clear it up for someone else that'd be cool.

I've been going between these two stress testing guides, usually I've read to go for 12 hours. I'm planning to do 12 hours of Prime95 large FFT tonight. I already ran Intel Burntest successfully.
