Thanks all.
I'm not sure about the light staying on, but it bothers you, just turn off your PSU's switch or just unplug. It's possible the upgrade in BIOS switched one of your settings and it keeps components powered regardless of being shut down.

As for overclocking your NB past 2800+, it's very possible, but will require an increase in NB voltage and NB-CPU voltage. Using 1.45V my NB and 1.55V for my NB-CPU, I was able to cold boot past 3000mhz, but I wouldn't recommend going past 1.4V for both NB and NB-CPU, unless you know what you're doing. It's best to aim somewhere between 2600-2800 when OCing your NB, anything past that doesn't have much benefits.

Try playing with the power options, do you use sleep state S1 or S3? I'm not familiar with the other options, so it's worth exploring, especially since our boards have a clear CMOS button, making playing around fun and easy.

Got this board today! Only 5 hours since my first boot and I’m already loving the features, esp the "CPU NB Multiplier"! I didn't have that on my Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4P!!! Going to have fun playing with NB Speed overclocking!

I did a lot of research on this upgrade, and came here many times for info from people who owned it, so thanks to all who put out their own personal reviews on it!

Biggest reason for my upgrade was a Quad Fire setup! Stupid "UPS 3 Day Select" though and my 2 additional Sapphire 4870's and 8 Sapphire 5770's (5 ref, 3 non ref) shipped on 2/17 won't be here until 2/22! "Select" how many days after 3 they are delivered more like it!

Going to be doing a lot of benchmarking on these video cards, and this is just the board for it!!!!! Will post 3DMark06 results!

Glad to be part of this club, and again, thanks to the members who helped make my decision on this board easier!!!!!

Lets begin with NB voltage,this has nothing to do with overclocking the NB frequency,it's the voltage supplied to the chipset,so such high voltages are not required,i run mine @1.26v which is more than enough.

It's the cpu and cpu-nb voltages that count when overclocking,and running your CPU-NB at 1.55v is not advised,as this is over the recomended voltage that AMD specify as safe on air cooling,hope this helps.

Will the GD70 at least boot/post into BIOS for update to a BIOS that supports a particular CPU if an unsupported CPU is used on whatever version of bios is shipped with board ?

I ask as i may want to pair this board with a Phenom II X2 555 as i hear since these are guaranteed C3 they are awesome value for money with OCing and potential Core unlocks.

Your cpu has been supported since bios 1.6,if your board's bios is lower than this it should still post,but the cpu may not be recognised properly until you update the bios,and remember not all x2's will unlock to x4's,it's very chip and board dependent.Good luck anyway.

Go to BIOS settings --> Power Management Setup --> Jfp2 Power Led Function --> change it to Power Led

I had the same issue - have no idea why it's like that but it is And there is nothing wrong - it is normal

I realise that the unlock is in no way guaranteed, more interested in the 555 for it being always C3 and the impressive OCing potental it seems to have then the core unlock, as for gaming quad core is still not all that great as for the most part games are still not threaded enough to really take advantage. Also im struggling a bit with budget here due to storage commitments i figure the 555 is defiantly worth looking at.
