Anyone on this? My board from Newegg says F7 BIOS but gigabyte updates showed beta updates. Has anyone used their beta bios before? My 1st gigabyte board and usually I just flash to the latest bios, but beta? Anyway this thing does run absolutely awesome on the F& ver. I guess when I'm done stress testing I'll have to make sure I don't get the usb problem...

I bought this board 2 weeks ago and its great. Just a fyi to anyone that plans to play COD4 with the onboard sound you will most likely get random crashes from it. Next time I wont forget to order a soundcard from newegg

I received this board Monday to use with my E8400 and flashed to F8b because I thought that F7 didn't support the Wolfsdale processors. It runs great and stable, but I'm having one major problem: I can't seem to change the FSB. The BIOS says it is changed but at the POST screen and in Windows (CPU-Z), it always says 333 MHz no matter what. I can change just about anything else (memory timing, multipliers, voltages), except I can't seem to disable speed-stepping either.

This morning I flashed to F8f and no difference.

Even the EasyTune Pro tool seems unable to change the FSB by even 1 MHz.

Are you using F7 with an E8400 -- and all is OK?

Try F8b BIOS. That's what I'm using now and everything's fine. Weird part is, you should be able to disable SpeedStep.

Try jumping the CMOS to see if that helps. Touch the two pins near the South Bridge heatsink and CMOS battery with a screw driver for 5 seconds.

F7 BIOS should support the Wolfdale E8400 from what I remember.

Yeah, my board came with f7 and it supported the E8400 out of box. F8b added the option to do half multis like 8.5 though.

What are your settings for 3.2GHz with 400x8?

It's been a long couple o' days but seem to be stable now with bastardized memory timings.

Thanks for responding about the bios, looks like no real benefit for me...

I got the E6550 because the cache and FSB seemed attractive but with the GSkill it's been tricky. Of course me being unwilling to kick up the V is what the slowdown was.

I had to set Vcore to 1.35 in the bios to get 1.30 in hwm (while running prime95 mixed test) but that seems to be stable with 460FSB with +0.1V and +0.1V MCH. with my mult stuck at 7X (thanx intel) I'm getting 3.22GHz stable, ran overnight and another 3hrs this afternoon in a 90F room cores got up to 58C, thank you AC freezer7.

Gskill F2-6400CL5D-2GBNQ ran 9 passes memtest86 then errored so kicked the V up to 2.1 in the bios. hwm showing 2.05 in hwm with prime on 3 hrs. I'm happy with that as I can hold the heat sinks and they are not hot (nice test, eh?) Took forever to get past errors, by default board set high V and 1080 speed. I locked memory at 1:1 and things stabilized but I wanted to run 2V only, had to go to 2.1 to get past errors. GSkill USA rep said warranty on OC is ok if you don't overheat them in another forum.

The big change happened when I went from 5-5-5-15 to 4-4-4-12 and a 2T cmd rate. previously at 1080 memtest showed apx 150MB/s improvement over 920 but when I kept it at 920 and tightened timings memtest showed a 650MB/s improvement! (btw this is 800ddr) and it looks like I could tighten timings a bit more at this speed but I am having a hard time following along. This other forum was all based on an asus board and sub-timings don't cross directly over to the gigabyte bios at all.

I wanted to maybe try to get 3.4GHz on air but had trouble over 460FSB could be mem or? maybe I'm still a bit low on the Vcore? Also I'm swapping case fans for silent low flow due to noise restrictions (will be in a recording studio) So I might have to back off anyway to keep the heat down.

Any experience with these GSkills? I noticed they went from $45 back up to $90 at newegg in the last 2 weeks...
