i just put up this article on VRMs if anyone is interested:
http://sinhardware.com/index.php/vrm-articles/316-the-ultimate-motherboard-voltage-regulator-guide?showall=&limitstart=

on price its cheaper and gives you features, so sure if you just want to use it as a normal board then sure why not its a decent value.

Nice writeup! Really appreciate that Sin, though it does reinforce that I didn't need to spring for the UD5H over the UD3H.

I have read quite a few of your posts on the subject, really informative. I ask because I can get the UD3H for about $10 more than what I paid for the Extreme4, and I wasn't sure if my OC plans would be okay for the board. I don't plan on changing up my rig for at least 5 years, and I need something that will last and perform well for that time. The build of the UD3H is great but if the VRM issue isn't going to affect me, I'll stick with the faster boot times.

is there any newer bios for the ud3h than f18? I see f19e beta has been on the us gigabyte site for like 7 months with nothing newer or non beta. I didn't find any newer bios when I went to the gigabyte taiwan site either

We probably won't see new BIOS releases until Z87 release.

I'm using for about a week and in order to get stable with my new Tridentx at 2400 cl 9-11-11-31-1T @ 1.62v these voltages for the vtt and imc:

Vtt - 1.15v
Imc - 1.1v


All this on the oc at 4.7GHz and with ~ 1.28v of vcore

Supposing I wanna try to lower some of these two voltages (vtt and imc) until is possible, wich one should I start with?
Thanks for the proper answers smile.gif

they killed support even a lot ago before releasing z87

no they just slow down just like every platform, there are releases just all BETAs and when intel releases huge firmware things they will release final versions. But yes for the most part most of their BIOS engineers have Z87 as a top priority, but if there is a specific issue and i report it, it will still get fixed.

You have to look at it this way, how can they give it the same rate of BISO updates and do the next platform, when all the retailers will stop carrying Z77 stuff in a few months? You should blame Intel for only giving Z77 a year, otherwise like X58 you can get multi year support.

Also there is possibly ANOTHER reason which is good for you, but which i cannot divulge.

Has anyone taken the time to figure out the PWM fan control in bios for the CPU header? All of my other fans are on a controller. I would like a Temperature in Celsius vs. Fan Speed % explaination if possible for the 2.5/C ramp configuration.

BTW, hello Sin and Dexel.. You convinced me and I am now no longer an Asrock owner (Well only in my basement parts box now, I may still get a cheap case with PSU and I3-3225 and get my wife off of my rig). Hopefully you can welcome me to this side of things. The vcores ARE different between the boards regarding CPU-z:thumb:.

Ok so I went down to 0.025v on both the vtt and imc voltages and it doesn't hold well the stress test with linx (the windows and some colors on the desktop were acting strange, crashing and I stopped the linx test)
So I set back the 1.15v for the vtt and kept only the lowered imc (1.075v) and tested again, everything ok
Shall I lower the imc even more?
