try booting with a higher temperature with higher memory divider and then drop down with temperature. Maybe try higher vcore to help that.

Question,

Why is it harder to enter the UEFI bios when I've overclocked the CPU?

I was using 1.25 VCore for a 4.5Ghz (no turbo boost) OC the other day... pretty much ok with everything except Adobe Premiere encoding... but man, it took me like 10 mins to get in the UEFI when i was troubleshooting it...

Naah, I literally broke one of the stand offs of my keyboard... j/k it broke because of BF3

Anyway, is there a special reset to default settings key combo on power up? Like in my old mobo, where I just keep pressing the power button on start up to revert to the optimized defaults...

After an exhausting bout trying to get my M4E motherboard to work, fresh back from RMA too, I decided to go ahead and purchase the UP5 TH. Looking forward to putting it through its paces. Currently have a p45-ud3p board and a q9550 that I use as my backup and its been one of the best boards I have ever used.I have two Gigabyte boards, AMD platforms, that have never had issues since they were built 3 years ago roughly. I hope the UP5 can hold up to the reliability I have come to expect from Gigabyte. There is a lot of useful information in this thread and I just want to give my thanks. It made my decision to purchase the UP5 board much easier.
The only concern I have at the moment, is from a review on newegg that mentioned something about power supply compatibility, which baffles me. Some of the ones listed are actually good power supplies. I would assume any PSU would work as long as it is compliant with current ATX standards. Does anyone know anything regarding this issue or is the guy talking out his arse?

A few people have reported the AX860i to have stability issues, Google it.

Although I have one on my UP5 TH with no issues.. Seems to be limited to a few people.

yea, i mean it differs on other things too you know, but certain times certain stand by rails might be out of spec or too far off for some things to work./ Ussually you see this on crappy Odin PSUs, but honestly my M5E would give power surge error every boot with my AX1200, plugged it into another system and there was no surge. .some boards are just sensitive.

might be related but, some odd thing... with the old Odin Pro 1200W, when I enter UEFI, my mouse would not be working...always until I replug it. With me now using the Coolermaster M2 850W, everytime I enter UEFI, the mouse is working...every single time. Odd. Anyway, yes, the Odin now won't work with the UP5 when i upgraded to GTX680...with an older GTX295... it would only boot from cold... or if I drain the psu's capacitors / mb capacitors... oh well.
