I'll have to play with it some more - strange problem.
When you flash the bios, it even erases those saved profiles, from what I've experienced on Gigabyte and ASUS.
I guess Gigabyte still haven't over come their memory OC'ing issues in their mobo's, I guess apart from the UD7 in their Z77 and OC-Force in their Z87 platforms, its pretty much still the same. My UD5H in its earliest Ivy release days couldn't OC my 2133Mhz rated Ripjaws-Z above 2200Mhz, no matter what I set in the bios, apart from the traditional BCLK.
Fall of 2012, sold that and got a MVF, that made me take my sticks till 2400Mhz (talking about memory multipliers) and the rest BCLK all the way till 2580Mhz.
Currently my 4770K and ASUS Deluxe are running the same sticks at 2800Mhz with a little bump in memory voltage and loose timings.
So it was obvious that I finally came to conclude that memory OC'ing matters really a lot on the IMC of the CPU and the memory sticks itself, the rest is a good mobo and an experienced OC'ers game and that's it.
