I didn't say I have no issues. I just said I don't have your issue, there are BIOS issues. I just don't get the throttling thing.

Ill report it again.

I've contacted Gigabyte directly and after a week of making my issues clear to them, they have come back saying that they cannot reproduce the problem, and suggested as Sin0822 did that MOSFET or CPU temps are the issue. Unless the MOSFETs can magically run 100C over ambient temps with a 60CFM fan sitting directly over them, temperature is not the issue.
I have a much older, supposedly more primitive and less capable, GA-X58A-UD5 2.0 that has been running virtually 24/7 for the better part of 18 months with CPU and VRM temps at least 20C higher than the hottest I've ever encountered on this X79-UP5, with the CPU pulling more current, at a higher voltage, than what the UP5 throttles at.
I have tried every official and beta BIOS available (up to and including F4n), with every conceivable combination of settings, and have not been able to get around these issues. I have quite literally spent over 100 hours at this point tweaking, testing, flashing, reflashing, etc, attempting to get around this.
From what I have seen so far, half of the people on OCN with this board, none of whom are OCing novices, are unable to get any significant OC out of it without experiencing severe throttling. Of the other two, one experienced throttling at a moderate OC, and only Sin0822 seems to have no issues.
Something is seriously wrong here.

Would it help if I got you some temperature numbers? I have a DT301 that I can hook up to measure the VRM temperatures and I can also possibly use to approximately measure the CPU temperature (at least the IHS temp) so that we can eliminate temperature out of the equation? I did not normally use my DT301 on the CPU but I'm sure I can figure out somewhere to stick the probe to get some decent results. At least for VRM it should be possible.

I can say though that the VRM heatsink, when touched is not even lukewarm, heck it is not even warm at all rolleyes.gif. The CPU itself is peaking out at an average temp of 60C when being stress tested in a 27C room. There is also a direct fan blowing over the VRM in my case as well, just as in Blameless' case.

I'll just throw this in here as well since I already sent it as a message anyway...

This issue is not a fluke. This is a defect, and I am 99.99% certain that I know what is the defect too since I had a similar scenario with Rampage 2 Extreme back in the time Nehalem first came out. At least the symptoms are basically exactly the same. At that time I worked direct with Asus to get the BIOS fixed because they botched the TDP limiters and turbo implementaton (both features) which was causing the board to throttle back as soon as the low TDP limits were reached. I would bet again that now Gigabyte has made a serious mistake in implementing the TDP limiters in the BIOS. In fact, it could be as simple as the settings in the BIOS for thermal limits simply not having any effect, but I have no way of actually checking that. The fact that I see a number changing in the UI does not mean that it is actually having any effect.

In this case though it gets worse. I have no explanation what so ever for the board simply defaulting to running stuck at 3.2GHz irrespective of the multiplier simply when I disable turbo and all power saving features. In actuality the opposite should happen, the board should allow me to tweak fully without interference once all of these features are turned off.

And then there is the memory and the fact that the board is officially rated for 2133MHz yet using all slots filled up just bombs out if the speed is set at 2133MHz. I would not say that it is the IMC on the chip since removing 4 sticks runs just fine at 2133MHz without having to do a single voltage adjustment in the BIOS in regards to DRAM, IMC, or VTT voltage.

I have the latest driver installed, version 8.1.10.1300 (or from that package), however, I did hear that in order for ME to function correctly with Windows 8 it is required to update ME firmware to version 8 or higher (in this case the most recent stable would be 8.1.10.1286). How can I tell which version is installed on this board? I am not sure that it has any bearing on this, but I'm entertaining the thought you put forward...

If you have the firmware files still downloaded, navigate to Tools\System Tools\MEInfo\Windows64\

Then open up a command prompt from that folder and type MEInfoWin64. It will list the ME driver and firmware that you have currently.

Well, I'll be home in about 2.5-3 hours so I should be able to check it then. I'm not holding my breath though, but let's see. I do know that Asus issued an ME FW update for their X79 boards to prep them for Windows 8 so that's where I got the information...I just remembered.

Sorry for three posts in a row, but I don't want to post in the same post to avoid confusion. I have done some more extensive testing now and I am convinced that the TDP limiter of some sort is kicking in causing the processor do downclock. How did I determine that? Read on and keep in mind all tests were done with the chip clocked to 4.4GHz, all throttling and power control set to disabled in the BIOS, all C-states disabled in the BIOS as well.

First I ran Cinebench, and the clock does not flinch at all. It stays solid at 4.4GHz for the whole run and the results correspond to it (~12.5pts at 4.4GHz). This is consistent with Cinebench load which is not that high even though usage is at 100%.

Next I ran LinX and set the memory to use to approximately ~5GB in one test or at full 32GB in the second test and then monitor the load. While the memory is filling up the clock is solid at 4.4GHz. As soon as the memory is all loaded and high computational load kicks in, the throttling starts. The time before the throttling kicks in exactly corresponds to the second when the LinX process changes from loading data into memory to performing calculations.

Ok, at this point things are really pointing towards a TDP limitation of some sort, but I decided to test further so I decided to do an even more controlled test.

I loaded up Prime95 and limited the number of threads to 4. No throttling as you can see below.


Then I decided to set the number of threads to 8. Throttling starts, but it is not quite so aggressive yet as you can see below.


Finally, I decided to go all out with 12 threads. Not only is the throttling kicking in majorly, but it is pretty much constantly throttling the chip as you can see below and very aggressively too.


For the record, I have seen this behavior before...a long time ago when the first Nehalem chips came out. Asus botched their implementation of the Turbo feature and TDP limits. That is why this tool came out http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/archive/index.php/t-225450.html after I and a few others worked with Asus to get the issue resolved (initially in that case I was also convinced that there was no problem and that everything worked "as designed"). In that case things were a bit better because even though the chip would throttle when using Turbo and exceeding TDP threshold at least fixed multipliers worked with Turbo disabled and were unaffected by the TDP limit. In this case we do not have any recourse. In fact, fixed multipliers without Turbo enabled do not even work on this board at all. The board always just defaults to running the chip at 3.2GHz if Turbo is disabled which is so plain-as-day majorly broken it is almost comical (@Sin0822 - This is something very specific that you can bring forward to Gigabyte as it may be quicker to fix than the other issue).

For some more reading see the following thread on XS Asus P6T / Rampage II Extreme: no "CPU VR Current Override" ???

Eventually, in that case Asus added a fix for the TDP limit issue in BIOS 1104 and everything was resolved. No more throttling at all.

I really hope that this is useful information to bring forward. This should be an easy problem to fix, and for that matter even reproduce. Fire up latest CPU-Z then just grab a Version 1.0 GA-X79S-UP5-WIFI board, plop in an i7 3930K SROKY, crank the multiplier to 44x, then boot Windows 7 (or Windows 8) and run 64-bit version of Prime95 Blend with all cores/threads used (in this case 12), then watch the board throttle. It will do it like clockwork. The other one is even easier. Disable all turbo and power management features, then set the multiplier to 44x and watch the CPU load up at measly 3.2GHz as though no adjustments to the clock speed were made.

Edit: I just finished testing UEFI BIOS F4b as well since that one was reported as "working" in this thread, and the results were exactly the same. Throttling all the way.

As I've mentioned before, I'm also fairly convinced it's a TDP/current limiter issue.

Gigabyte got back to me again today and they now suspect it's an issue with my CPU...yet I've been able to test the chip in an ASUS board, with no such issues.

Actually, I could not get any MEI driver to install (not the one's on Gigabyte's site, nor the newest from Intel) correctly until I found an old one on the Windows Update Catalog for the older C200 chipset...which I thought was really odd. Any other driver I used would produce an error 10 - device failed to start. I figured it was some incompatibility with Server 2008 R2.

However, I've never encountered a system that actually needed such a driver to be overclocked, or for much of anything else I do really.
