Well im gonna test it maybe it was just the overclocking failure that reseted in someways the bios. If not it just a defective mobo and il send it rma.


Uh well gigabyte with some pressure told me they would contact some kind of support. But i explained both problem and cant edit the ticket or post before they reply. Since there only 1 bug with a new one

RMA won't fix the problem.

I have verified that I have the same issue. The board will boot with high multis (24 or 25 even) from the BIOS. You can get into Windows and everything. But, when you try to restart or (shutdown and then boot) the only way to get back is a CMOS reset. mad.gif

So, it looks like the only way to overclock this board a lot is to use BCLK. It seems to be stable with 225 BCLK but your mileage may vary.

The Stilt said Gigabyte has removed parts that were on the 1.0 version of the board. It seems that this behavior is related to that. Or, the company is just trying to keep people from getting easy, non-BCLK, high overclocks so the board won't cut into sales of higher-end boards so much.

Regardless, I will still recommend this board over that AsRock "Fatality" because at least it doesn't blow up.

Try enabling apm, and stick to overclocking on 200fsb
your vrms might be cooking too its a 4+1 mobo?

This board gives me an ulcer. This should be the go-to board for budget minded enthusiasts.

I've spent dozens of hours trouble shooting not to mention assisting their BIOS team. They quickly stopped responding to me, and I was very thorough and polite.

The only am3+ gigabyte board I have confidence in is their 78lmt-usb3. It's a mATX and technically weak but legendary in my experience in performance for what its specs are.

970Boards are only good for stock or up to 4.2GHZ without overvots

Enabling APM for cpu may solve his crashing plorbem
I had a ud3 990 and 970 d3p and with 4300 if you set the bios to 4.7ghz or higher it will not boot
it will not run 23.5x mulitpier, but if you use software in windows it will run

970 is only stable on 200 fsb and if i get up to about 205 it will suddenly crash given that you don't even overclock cpu frquencies

I'm typing this from my UD3P at 225 BCLK and 4.7 GHz.

no sudden crashes?
I only know that d3p gets crashes when fsb gets past 205

What revision is the board and what CPU model?
