Hmm, I guess i'll be waiting for a little bit then.

there actually is a UEFI for your Z68X-UD3H wink.gif you want to try it? It looks just like the UEFI, but only advanced mode. It is a 32MBit UEFI opposed to the 64MBit on the X79 and Z77 boards, however you have to use a DOS program to flash the BIOS over.

VCore control was just added, i can get that BIOS for you if you want.

Yeah I've noticed it on Gigabytes forum and I guess It went live as a regular download on their website. But how do you flash if your on 64bit windows?

You can not flash it from Windows, flashefi program needs to be run from DOS. Make a DOS bootable usb stick and copy everything from bios package there.

I am considering flashing this update to my board, are there any current drawbacks? I would like to keep my overclock... wrote all my settings down already because I know when upgrading, everything gets reverted to stock.

God I feel like this thread is ancient history but by the time I get enough money together to build the setup I want it's EOL! LOL... anyway I was wondering if anyone out there is still rockin' a Z68XP-UD4 with the UEFI u1l beta bios.

I haven't broken much of anything important on my rig lately and I'm just ITCHING to fry something but I've got too much important stuff and and too much time invested to have to start back from a brick even with everything backed up an all it's at least a day long process at best.

My GA-Z68XP-UD4 is rocking the F6 BIOS which is the only one I see on the official Giga site for my board. Is/has there been a newer BIOS compatible with my board that's stable and maybe has the newer Intel option ROM with it?

In case my sig is not showing up (it should be) my quick stats are:

GA-Z68XP-UD4 rev. 1.3
Core i7-2600K stable @ 4.3GHz
4x4 ADATA 4GB 1600MHz Gaming Series DDR3 Dimms
ADATA SX900 256GB SSD system drive + important apps
ADATA SX900 256GB SSD games and frequently used data
Seagate 7200RPM HDD 1TB with Crucial M4 SSD as IRST Cache
EVGA GeForce GTX 570 HD 2.5GB x2 SLI
Coolermaster Silentpro 1000W Bronze PSU

I just finished building a system on a ga-z68xp-ud4 v1.0 board. Stay on the f6 bios. Do not go to the uefi. I was on U1L.

For me I had weeks of messing with a randomly unstable, boot looping pc. It is totally stable with the last official release. Non beta biod ftw!

There is no LLC in uefi for this board.

I5 2500k, 4.4ghz. 1.26v at load. 71C max core temp after 12h prime95 blend run.
