Have tried some more OCing last night.
Was running my CPU at 4.5GHz and started off at 1.3Vcore which was fine.
Then turned it down to 1.28 V which seemed to do okay too.
And finally lowered it to 1.275 V with LLC set to 'high'.
Put it through an IBT test initially then thought I'd run a Prime95 blend test.
I started it at 11 last night and when I checked before work at 7 this morning my highest temps so far were: 66 - 70 - 71 - 68
The test is still running and will check the temps again when I get home.

Are these values (Vcore, temps etc) looking normal?

Still adjusting the fan and pump curves on my h220, but my hottest core hits 71c running at 4.3 GHz on a 1.188 Vcore. 27c ambient...damn third floor living.

Can anyone provide a link for specifications on the iTE8728F Super I/0 on the UD5H?

Argh the BIOS just froze on me again! I thought that the Blend test would've been good enough to test the stability of the overclock...

How long did you run it for? I find a hour is normally enough to test for basic stability, which is fine for normal web browsing and basic tasks, although you can still get crashes occasionally. To ensure a greater degree of stability I just play a few demanding games for several hours and adjust my overclock accordingly if it crashes, maybe a bit of folding here and there to really stress it wink.gif I've never done the traditional stability testing where you leave prime95 running for 12+ hours.

I had the blend test going overnight as well as throughout the next working day, so it went on for around 20ish hours haha.
I also did a slightly shorter IBT run yesterday just to check temps and all. They were a little higher than what I got with the Blend test, but nothing too bad.
By the way is there some sort of 'Official' Gigabyte Z77 overclocking guide like there is one for the Asrock Z77 motherboard? I've been looking but can't find any...

I still haven't even read that guide yet, I should really get around to doing it tongue.gif I don't think I'll be going any higher than 4.4GHz though, I don't want the voltage over 1.30V wink.gif

My 3570k is at 4.4GHz at 1.200 Vcore, this was stable for 4 hours on a custom P95 run, I could most likely lower the Vcore, but it's rock solid at this voltage and my temps are great. 90% of available memory, Max FFT 4096, Min FFT 128, did not run the FFT's in place. So it's kind of like an extreme blend test.

Hi all,

Just about to build my first rig and have been worried about the boot time for the UD3H. I have seen the AsRock Extreme4 boot up in 4.8ish seconds, versus the 10.8ish seconds for the UD3H. I want to get the UD3H for its build quality, but it will kill me every time I boot up to lose those 6 seconds. I have read that there was a new bios update that significantly upped boot time, and whereas AsRock and Asus have special modes that allow for ultrafast ~5 second boot times, I haven't seen one yet for the UD3H. Please tell me there is one, I need to allay my final qualms and pick up this beauty now and return my Extreme4!

EDIT: Will be pairing this with a Samsung 840 Pro 256 GB SSD for OS and some other programs only.

(Note, first time builder here, did a solid google search and couldn't find any answers, and the 550+ pages tell me I'm in the right place smile.gif )
