The G1 sniper 3 uses a 12 phase PWM, whereas the UP7 uses a quadrupled 8 phase PWM, so it might not fit.

After studying the mb up close it looks like it won't fit. the vertical portion of the top port seems longer on the UP7.

Yeah, the VRM components look like they're a bit different.

got it together, looks like prime at stock gets up to 61c, so not alot of headroom, but I wasn't expecting to OC much with this setup.

Just thought I would add to this thread:
G1 Sniper M3 and Enermax ETS-T40-TA CPU cooler compatibility :

Fits OK but the fan must be blowing from the back to the front when using RAM with large heat sinks. (anything above heatsink-less RAM). This is only on the M version of the board, not sure about the full ATX version.



As you can see from the picture :
The heat sink is very close to the first card (GTX 580). So close that the bracket holding the fan on to the heat sink touches the video board unless you slightly bend it inward. I have around 5mm of clearance between the card and the bracket. If you are using 2 cards on this board and a large heat sink, be careful.

I have no idea. It's probably under advanced cpu core features.

Hello
I've been tweaking this board but I am unable to get the chip to 4.5Ghz stable and the voltage i set will not stick in windows. (I'm not talking about vdrop here)
Any idea?

All I want is x45 turbo, 1.2vcore under load. On idle I want 1600Mhz, 1v like my old ASUS board.

I'm sure I am just setting something wrong here.
Thank you.
