No LLC? I didn't know that there were UD3 boards that didn't have it but i guess its the Rev 1.0 or 1.1 boards? no bios updates to implement that? I have a UD3 Rev3... and it has LLC.. and was great for OC'ing.. it's too bad that some of the other rev's have this limitation..i guess that's why they made "revisions" in the first place, eh!

I also i have found it to be slightly unstable at 4.6ghz it will show occasional errors in intel burn test. If i lower it to 4.5ghz load voltage drops to 1.39 and errors still appear....
well, a drop is expected under load.. that's the whole reason for LLC in the first place.. to account for this.. but .1v is very high.. dropping .01 to .03 of a volt is the norm when pushing the chip.. vdroop is THE one thing that the Gigabyte mobo's are known for.. I have a UD3 as well..no longer my main board.. it's still great and can achieve great oc's..but it's a Rev3 with latest UEFI bios...and has LLC

I had the same question before I got my Sabertooth cuz it was basically the ONLY board that listed such a LOW max supported ram frequency...but that's just it, "supported" is the key word there.. basically it's the max that ANY configuration can get on an AMD "FX" chip..but that doesn't mean it can't go higher.. no prob to do 2000, 2133 and 2400.. as long as you have the ram to do it.. I have tried 6 different pairs of dimms and all but one set could do 2400 with the DOCP profile for it.. and the one set i have now can do 2505MHz with a slight bus increase.. it is true that AMD's IMC (memory controller) is definitely not the greatest and can be "finicky" and not perform nearly as well as Intel but with the right tweaking, a lot is still possible. and with many oc's, its the memory that can be the bottleneck or the wall that many hit if they only have low dimm's that do just 1333/1600..
