The board i have in my rig right now was among the best, king of LGA 775s and i waited years to buy it, in the end i bought it just for 150$ so why not with this one.
Surely you didn't buy it new at that price. I have found that motherboard makers tend not to greatly reduce the prices of their boards in specific price ranges, i.e. their $250 board won't ever be sold less than $2--, their $150 board never less than $1--.

@supershanks
I'm still in search of RAM for this board, it has mainly been a lack of funds at this particular time.
Honestly, I have not been applying myself to my i7 project but, I just finished payments on my Nissan and some extra loot will help get some RAM in my long over due rig.

Your living review is awesome. You defiantly put some time and work into it. Congrats!

Apologies guys, somehow I can't get my mail notification working.

Yep did'nt get there.
A pretty miserable 215 was best I could get , was hoping the extra multi on the I7-930 might help but looking at the voltage I had to use I can't see it getting much past 4.4Ghz :lol:I7-930 4.2Ghz


@r2tbone I'm using G-skill ripjaw 2000Mhz on both my P55 and the UD7. Very decent ram at what was a decent £ when i got it. needs 1.60v at stock, so has that 0.5v leeway which might ber uesful. Having said that it runs better in P55 but that's really down to the better quality memory controller on the 32nm LGA1156 chips.

I'm just waiting on PayPal so I can order my RAM. I dropped off an old ASUS 939 board with a couple CPUs on eBay and I am waiting the guy for feedback.
I hate eBay but, I was tired of looking at my i7 setup sit there all sad with no will to play games or be the bad ass it could be. I could go dual core now but, I would rather have the tri-core. Either way, compliments again on your living review and I hope to have more input on my UD7 soon.

I see that the manual says the the mobo supports 6 sticks of ram at 1.5V but I see reviews such as Shanks with RAM running at 1.6-1.65V. I would like to pull the trigger on this purchase tonight but, I'm still undecided on which to go with. I welcome any and all suggestions from anyone here.

What exactly do you need to know?

I'm running 3 sticks of Corsair XMS3, pretty mainstream ram, nothing high end at 1600mhz / 1.64V, 6 sticks at 1.64 should be no problem. (put the 3 sticks in, booted without hassle, had bios version f4 when I first booted it, I did notice that the board/bios put the ram on 1000mhz though)

Just did some backtracking, to see what your problem is/was. Uhm, Gigabyte released another bios version recently (f6) with added memory compatibility, so you could try upgrading the bios. Borrow or steal some ram somewhere so you can boot Qflash and flash the thing?

Oh and btw, did you put the ram in the white slots? I read it doesn't POST when you don't put it in the white ones.
