Yep. I keep my boards on high performance, and they downclock/downvolt just fine. I also leave all the bios features like EIST, etc on Auto. I actually get better SSD speeds on the Auto settings than either enabled or disabled. This is for X45 clock. Higher clocks take some tweaking here and there for stability on my boards.

i may give it a shot at my 4.5 OC , i think is was fine then , the problem i have it getting it to work with 4.7 OC , i think i even tried 4.6 , dont remeber if it worked or not ,

i think 4.6 was fine even with my 4.5 vcore

it was when i went to 4.7 , had to raise Vcore etc, to get stable and its fine when just fixed there

But VL811+ is better, it has SuperSpeed Certification: http://www.techpowerup.com/178138/VIA-Labs-VL811+-USB-3.0-Hub-Controller-Obtains-USB-IF-Certification.html

not many controllers have this cert let alone hubs.

thats good to know , i was not sure if can update it or not , wasnt sure which i had , now i know its the 811 since i have the 1.1 version UD5H

on the website it shows it but dosnt say that its stable or official release , so not sure if its safe to update or not ?

Ah, OK, both my boards are revision 1.0. Thanks!

I just finished building my new system with a gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H, intel i5 3570k and a hyper 212 evo heatsink and it seems like the first two DIMM slots are defective.. if I put ram in those two, the pc won't boot up.. seems to get stuck at A0 error code. But if I put ram in the 2 slots closest to the cpu, it boots up fine. So far I've tried two brands of ram, corsair vengeance and gskill ripjaws.. neither one work in the first two slots.. is this a known problem? Should I exchange the mobo with amazon?

You may want to unmount the cpu and carefully check for bent pins as this has been reported to be the problem for a previous poster.

I assume you are aware that you are supposed to use the outer most slot from the cpu with the second slot from the cpu when using two sticks of ram for dual channel mode (you can alternately use the third from the cpu and the first).

Thanks for the reply Barkeater. Yes I first tried slot 1 and 3 and the pc wouldn't boot at all. I tried one stick in all the slots and eventaully figured out the first two slots cause the pc not to boot up. Tried one stick in all the slots and also tried another brand of ram with the same result. Currently forced to use slot 3 and 4, so I don't have dual channel. I'll try looking at the cpu pins to see if any are bent but I was extremely careful mounting it

From what i know that AO is fine,, its not a error and should be at AO when you fully boot , i though the same thing when i got my board UD5 and from Gigabyte nothing is wrong , suppose to be AO

double check to make sure , i could be wrong , mines says AO , and my first board was also AO , gigabyte FM2 board first time

now with UD5

I had this problem (and am deeply indebted to having received this advice) -- the bent CPU pins usually is caused by heat sinks failing to give reasonable guidance on how tight you can screw them down. (Didn't used to be a problem with twist-lock mounts, but now that most coolers are screwed in, with mandatory back-plates, over-tightening is an epidemic problem.)

Holy crap, that could totally be it. I screwed down my hyper 212 evo really tight

Hmmmm.. I was told to tighten the spring loaded screws on a Hyper 212 evo until they stopped
