Its hard to tell, which ever option you go for you wont make a mistake. Both are great. The ud3 has a little better power regulation and dr.led. make your choice depending on the colour scheme.

zvonexp, are you a Gigabyte rep?

Which motherboards uses the Intel Alpine Ridge controller for USB 3.1 C / Thunderbolt 3/ DP 1.2, not only as a USB 3.1 controller?

Which motherboards have HDMI 2.0 HDCP 2.2?

It's possible to use the Alpine Ridge controller for DP 1.2 to HDMI 2.0 without the MegaChip converter, using the USB-C port.

Hi, I recently purchased a GA-Z170-HD3P and a i5-6600K and am interested in overclocking it.

However, I've run into a few issues: all the manual controls seem to be "locked". The motherboard is identifying the CPU as a K-series chip so it should be overclockable. The only overclocking I seem to be able to do is enable XMP, or use one of the built-in "overclock profiles", but not both and there are various issues even getting this working. For example, the built-in overclock profiles seem to set the memory frequency to 1600, regardless of if I have XMP profiles enabled or not. This is after loading the optimized defaults/factory configurations.

I've tried updating the bios to the beta F3e version and that doesn't change anything for me.

System setup:

CPU: i5-6600K
Motherboard: GA-Z170-HD3P
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4-2666
SSD: Samsung 850 evo 500GB
PSU: Corsair CX600M
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

Any help would be appreciated.
