Review of GIGABYTE's 2nd Gen. X79 Workstation MB: X79S-UP5 - Page 17

post #161 of 367
I did use the Lynx from the link, provided by dejanh in the post 145 - it is the same link as in latest post from dejanh.

I will double check just in case, although i'm pretty sure.
The OS is the fresh install of Windows 7 64 bit with all the updates.

In the AVX test you should not be throttling until somewhere around 130 GFLOPS performance, which usually occurs somewhere around 190w reported power.

You can follow this procedure to manually update LinX if necessary: http://www.overclock.net/t/1334037/attention-linpack-linx-ibt-etc-users-update-your-math-kernel-library-binaries

So Gigabyte sent me a new BIOS (F4t with customer code JZ - not sure what that means) that supposedly removes the power limits, well, so I am assuming anyway since they did not say much except for "try this BIOS". Unfortunately it is also throttling as you can see here.



Please test the BIOS from here and reply with your results. This fixes nothing for me. mad.gif

As expected redface.gif I've already let them know that it did not work. I've also recorded a video of me overclocking in case that they need "live" proof since they are being so difficult.

I really wonder what they will say now.

Hello guys.

I'm new here and i'm not into extreme OC. A complete novice on the matter.

I have this board on order and expecting delivery by Wednesday.

I also have in my hands the 3930K.

My system is all about Photo & Video editing. Not overclocking.
The main reason i chose this board was the SAS ports, although i will only connect regular sata discs on it.
I'd rather have stability than crazy fast oc-ing.


So, my question is this.

Should i change my order and go with the UD-5 instead? Or in normal use i will not see those issues you are referring to?

(i've read all your posts and i;m truly sorry that you did not get what you opted for)

Thanks in advance guys!

you will be okay with the UP5 then, the issues they are describing here with the throttling is about their CPUs down-clocking from like 4.4ghz+ down to stock speeds.

That issue can be caused just by the chipset itself, i mean it is a server chipset and the PCH controls a lot. C606 isn't the same as the normal X79 PCH that is usually provided on x79 boards.

I do not believe that if you leave everything at stock, and I mean everything at stock, that you will see this issue. Should you ever choose to upgrade to a 3970X or something that has higher TDP that may come in the future you may actually start to see problems with the chip not being able to keep the high turbo multiplier at load. What may apply more to you however is the RAID problems and the memory compatibility.

Keep in mind that on this board you cannot boot at the same time from RSTe RAID and SAS RAID. Only one can be used at a time. Same goes for Marvell RAID in combination with RSTe RAID or with SAS RAID. The board does not have enough shadow memory to be able to load two RAID option ROMs at the same time redface.gif

Finally, memory compatibility with all 8 banks used is spotty at best. XMP profile will never set the correct VTT voltage if using all 8 banks so you will need to set it manually if you want to be sure you do not have problems.

Overall, the firmware on the board is really buggy, but the board is solidly built. If Gigabyte sorts out the firmware issues the board can be the best LGA2011 board out pretty much. Whether they will do this or not remains to be seen.

Bollocks rolleyes.gif C'mon man, even you know that's a big load of crap. In fact, the chip will throttle even at stock, given enough voltage. I have proven this here, on Tweaktown, and to Gigabyte directly already.

Now the latest update from me is that Gigabyte has now gone full circle back again and is asking me the same questions that I have discussed with them a million times. They wanted me to repeat my test at 4.4GHz with 1.224V to match their exact test and to tell them if I am throttling. Again, of course I am throttling. Here is the proof, one more time...I have also sent them this screenshot and asked "what's the point of this repetitive testing when the outcome is the same every time"...

They still have not provided any tangible fix.

Thank you guys, i really appreciate it.

Without us getting away from this thread, what would a good alternative to this board will be for a solid built?

I 've always been an Asus guy, but my latest board the Sabertooth X58 has giving me nothing but trouble. I 've just send the second X58 i got back with numerous issues. I don't want to go throught all that again.

As for the memory part, i have kept my Corsair Dominator's 24GB Kit (6X4 @1600) and planning to buy two more to make the quad channel, or i will leave only 4 banks if i see problems and opt for new ones. We' ll see.


Thank you for your input. Sin, your review is what sell me this board and made the order a week ago.... (At the time i did not read all the pages though... redface.gif )

Followed the guide - same result.
Probably, I'm missing something - no matter what I do, I can get only about 87 GFLOPS. At 1.428V the CPU is consuming about 179W
