Interesting.

Thanks for clearing that up. Now I'm not scared to go for that higher end stuff in the future.

As long as you select DDR2 you are good to go. This model does not support DDR3

As long as your ram will do it, the board can handle it. I have OC'ed my 1066's to 1155.

I have revision 1.1. Weird that link doesn't show the revision numbers for the UD3P?

I believe it's because all revisions for the UD3P are compatible with the exception of revision 1.6 which is highlighted.

There is a typo however, that has a link to the F11 bios which is for the UD3R, not the UD3P

BTW - Later is not always better. The F9 or F10b are generally considered the best and if you have to RMA for any reason, be sure to use an official bios from the Gigabyte d/load page and flash before return.

Its just super weird cause the board actually works (POSTs fine, boots into OS fine), its just that voltage to the CPU that is wacky.

I'll know for sure though if the board is bad when I swap out this board for my p35.

I'll probably end up going to i7 pretty soon though and picking up a x58-ud5. I heard that the x58a boards are coming out soon though. Not sure what the difference is. Havent been keeping up with everything lately
Indeed, I've found this (at least my mobo) to be very different from anything else I've used. Each board seems very different by comparison, so it demands you work to find what's best for your set-up and is sometimes surprising in how well it actually performs imo.

I'm looking at an i7 too, but for different reasons. If you are a benching.high Octane man, just bear in mind there have been some individuals who have gone i7 and come back (even sold their i7's ) because they found them 'boring' to use in contrast to this set-up.

Depending on what you're after, keeping this rig even if you 'upgrade' may be an idea. Always good to have a back-up anyway. Downtime sux hey...

Yeah, I've noticed that typo too. So F10f have some problems or something?
