I've had nothing but awesome with Gigabyte boards and nothing but problems with ASUS boards, including one board that had an IC literally fall off on its own accord. (Back before I knew how to open a computer, computer stopped working, used mothers laptop to work out how, opened it, saw IC half hanging off the MB)

Then there's the fact that at least 3 ASUS motherboards I've had have lost their IDE controller, 2 of which it stopped the entire motherboard even though they had SATA as well.

Thanks Will, my noob ocing skillz aren't that bad after all

Seems like AMD overdrive fools around in the background making my oc revert to 2.8GHz when I try to run 3dmark06.

So after uninstalling it holds the oc.

OCing from the BIOS really is the best way for me.....now to learn how to tweak other stuff to see if I can hit 3.7-3.8GHz stable

Never heard of Overdrive doing that. Sure its not Cool'n'Quite?

Noob OC'ing? Dont think so, you have very good results.

Well initially that was the problem in the early stages but all of that is turned off. I dunno what it was but when I uninstall AMD Overdrive I now can keep my oc when firing up 3dmark06.

I have ACC disabled in the BIOS.

I also think whatever anti-virus is installed hinders your potential to oc.

Initially had Kaspersky Anti-virus installed but now I have NOD32 which uses ALOT less resources.

Then again vista ultimate 64bit possibly may not be the best OS to use for ocing....

Gigabyte board are quite similar with Asus board, difference is Asus boards are less aggresive in o'cing to better maintain stability. While Gigabyte board o'c more aggresively at the expense of BIOS stability (need to reset CMOS more often) when o'c fails. At least thats what me & my friends experienced.

How big is the difference between MA790X-UD4 and MA790X-UD4P?
