i just miss on some features in Asus mobos for some price range,and GB giving me much more for that,also board build quality iz amazing
all problems can be solved releasing bios updates,thats what GB doing,last Asus bios for my old P8P67 was probably 6 months ago
F10a is very good bios,at least for me
if you delay,you can also delay until lets say some Z87 release or Z98 or something wink.gif
just get UD3 or UD5 and be happy


Thanks for the reply, i just got scared at all the problems in the last few pages, i'm a wuss tongue.gif I'll get the ud3 since you're probably right. As a side note, is the onbord sound worse than what realtek has to offer? never had a via board. If you could answer that i'd be gratefull. THanks again.

i cant talk about UD3,since i have UD5 - sound on UD5 is really good,but i still prefer add on sound card (i have good ears lol)
so probably owners of UD3 can give you some feedback about sound on UD3
i dont think you should worry about board itself - GB as it seems really working hard on bios'es,sometimes i see 2 bios updates per week,which is nice to see that they care of they customers
worst what can happen is that you get board DOA - then again you only miss few days for replacing,but there is very slim chance
in all my pc experience during 22 years i received bad parts only 3 times (ram,video card,hard drive),none of it was motherboard,and then again all those DOA parts can be just because of transporting,as some delivery companies dont care to much about parcels (i worked for DHL,so i know how it works hehe)
just pull the trigger and get UD3,you will be pleased with it
there are same problems with other brands as well - Asus,MSI,ASrock - we just talking here about GB boards,there a lot of forums about other boards as well,so they all equal in that case

My problem i guess is not even UD5 but cpu,as i had same problem with Asus P8P67 Pro..cant run 16gb ram,only 8Gb frown.gif
Will wait what Sin gonna say,maybe there is still slim chance to find what causing this problem,as im really happy with 2600K

I know me and a few guys do LN2 with the UD5H all the time, we have been doing it since before release to make sure it works well. You can try like 5.5ghz perhaps with a SS.

Hi Everyone,

I have two small UD5h issues. I feel lucky after reading some of the stories in this thread. Trying to search this thread for help is a disaster.

MB: UD5h - F5 firmware
CPU: 3750k
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 4x4gb - 1600mhz 1.5v
PSU: Seasonic 760

1) 1600mhz ram is showing up as 1333mhz. If I turn on XMP "profile 1" to get 1600mhz the computer refuses to boot asks me to go back to bios. Ram is working fine, shows as 16gb and 1.5v.

2) During a cold boot or restart the computer will reset itself in the middle and boot again.

I'm hesitant to update the bios to the popular F6 without asking here first.

Thanks

Hey,i can talk only from my experience - update bios to the latest without any hesitation,i started using this board with F4 and so far for me best bioses were F8 (official) and now F10a
And i am using 2600K and ram working at 1600 if i can believe what cpuz says

Honestly, people come on here for help and to be heard/complain. A lot of times, imho, it's user error/inexperience. Every brand of mobo that has a thread on OCN will show the close to the same/similar complaints and also compliments. Just know, you are not getting an accurate idea of how hardware preforms by reading these threads. It's broad at best.

I bought a UD5H the day it came out. I'm 29 and I've been building comps all my life. Literally since the 386 days. And I can say this is the best board I've had to date, period. Don't be scared to buy a good product because some have problems, whether it's an Asus or Gigabyte. Every massed produced product deals with the same issues, as they can't control what happens once it leaves their hands, and sometimes defective units are shipped. Nothing is perfect, but this board is damn good. If a product had to be perfect and problem free for us to own it, we would own nothing.

Definitely the best motherboard for the enthusiast/geek in my opinion.

I was hesitant at first to purchase the motherboard because of the quantity of posts relating to it.

But after reading the posts you quickly realize the problems are either addressed in bios updates, specific to certain hardware combinations or are minor.

You can obviously save yourself some grief by staying away from component combinations that are giving people trouble.

I think it's easy to blow issues out of proportion when reading these forums.

All motherboards have issues.

Well I admit that it's somewhat subjective and anedoctical (like "it always rains when I forget the umbrella!"), but I too am under the impression that Gigabyte is struggling with their bios (talking about UD5). Lots of updates in so few days make me think that either the board was released prematurely or there could be a hardware issue that Gigabyte is trying to patch by tweaking the bios in a way to lessen its impact on most users. I mean, a manufacturer that releases updates is good, a manufacturer that releases updates every other day, though way better than one who does not care about its customers, is struggling with an immature product, IMBO.

I was wondering if the lack of capacitors under the cpu slot, unique of Gigabyte's design, could have something to do with the freezing problems so "many" seem to experience. What would happen in any other board that has such caps if they were to be taken away?

I want to stress that I am not implying that the UD5 is a badly engineered board. I have no idea what those capacitors are for, nor if they are needed on boards with other chipsets. But I' pretty sure somebody on this forum does and perhaps she/he will care to reassure potential buyers like me (I am running a GB board since 2002 and it never let me down - I love their quality).

I don't know, maybe these are the risks of buying a product in Intel's tick phase. Besides I had a look at the 'errata' for the Ivy Bridge processor and got scared of how many bugs are there.
