[OFFICIAL] Gigabyte G1. Sniper 5/M5/B5 Owners Thread/Club - Page 4

post #31 of 1890
Have this board for 2 days now and I already feel I'm not going to be friends with it. So many crashes, the temperature the 4770k get under water is nuts! I've seen 93 degrees c @ 1.3V. Bios interface is crap, standard overclocking features are utter useless. I used eztune to see what the board can do. Did 4.8 stable, so I dove into the bios, goal is 4.6Ghz and I just can't get it stable. And when it's stable it feels laggy as hell.

I agree somewhat. I go back to the classic bios as the windows mode is just too flashy. I think the problem with the crashing is that Haswell CPU's, like 70% wont go above 4.2Ghz. Mine is completely stable at 4.2Ghz, but anything above doesn't work. Temperatures, again, just Haswell running too hot.

Hoping more BIOS revisions fix some stability issues and some bugs. The latest BIOS was released before the motherboard even was.

Have just checked the bios of ASUS and MSI, both are WAY better, easier and more straight forward.

4.2 ?! i saw NaviBlue managed to get 4.6Ghz with 1.275v i guess

Air. Phanteks TC12DX. It's not stable above 4.2 at all. It seems to be a weird anomaly game. It's completely stable at 1.165v @ 4.2, but the second I go to 1.170V it crashes. I would think adding a little more voltage would make it more stable, but that's not the case. I just came from a Phenom II X6 and I had that thing +1Ghz in a few minutes, stable as ever. Intel is new to me.

I really think the thickness of the board makes the cooler not sit right on the CPU. No matter what I do, I can't get temps lower than 90C on any cooler, with any paste.

NOW if one thinks it can compete with external sound cards like STX or others...then it's wrong

can it compete with an X-FI Titanium ?

Read my post above. It currently can't even compete with onboard audio from 1998.

Although I can get 4.6ghz stable (for the most part), I still crash when I leave the pc on overnight, I don't really know what's going on...but if I can't sort this out in the next 10 days, I'm going to be returning this board and going with something else. For a 399.99, it's been an alright board.

Likely more so the CPU itself. Read the information on how badly the Haswells are overclocking, and that most never make it above 4.2Ghz because of unsafe voltages and temperatures.

But you have crash with stock ? or only when you have a overclock ?
