In IBT you need to run 8 threads it will BSOD like Prime trust me I thought i had 4.2GHz at 1.28v will it was BSOD on 8 threads

It all depends what you need, I decided to go for ASUS because.
1) Asus board is less picky with the memory than Gigabyte
2) Asus PCIx1 slot is not compromised by the huge cooling as on Gigabyte and I needed it for long wi-fi n card
3) Users reported Gigabyte taking long time to boot (30s before POST appears)
4) Users with Asus reported better temps & OC than Gigabyte
5) Have positive experiences with Asus in past, not that much with Gigabyte

and, obviously the most important reason - Black PCB
I just couldn't visualize blue PCB in my all black case

The only thing which Gigabyte has and ASUS doesn't - which I wish it did - is 10 SATA ports as I have 8 drives so can't have eSATA now but hey, can't have it all, can I

Now as for the PCIe lanes - both boards have X58 with similar SATAIII & USB 3 solutions so any problems will be the same on both.
However you have 36 PCI-e lanes, so 2x SLI in 16x still leaves 1 4x lanc - 2GB/s - plenty for a day to day use if you ask me.
On my system I have GTX 295 + GTX 260 physx - both in 16x mode + 2 SSD's on the Marvell SATAIII and although I haven't done any extensive tests, I don't have any problems with bandwith (and I have tried moving some stuff through SATA III while playing Batman).

You certainly can touch the limits but only when trying to use all graphics lane, connect 2 fast SATA II or SATA III drives to Marvell and using it all on max (seq read/write) at the same time - but not in a typical day to day use so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

All in all, all depends what you need, I picked ASUS and very happy about it.

Ok in 7 hour from now i will try! Im to office now, i can't. So if i try to get vcore to 1.3? And wich other settings i must use?

If it fails, go back into BIOS and increase it again one notch, then retest. Repeat this until you are stable.

I hope this helps.
Yes i know, thanks. I willt ry to increase core voltage: for sure i know that 1.56 to 4 ghz is too high cause my processore freenze with 81°; but dont know the limit of my QPI/dram. IS perhaps this a dram voltage (my is 1.65v max).

Anyone else who has had a terrible experience with the 0703 bios? Anyways if anyone knows how to downgrade from 0703 to 0402, please leave a note.

Bios 0402 for me:
4.2 GHz HT Off stable @ 1.272v
4.2 GHz HT On stable @ 1.294v
4.4 GHz HT Off stable @ 1.348v

Bios 0703 for me:
4.2 GHz HT off stable @ 1.28v
4.2 GHz HT On unstable @ every volt
4.4 GHz HT Off unstable @ every volt

I might have to do a few more test to verify these numbers, but this is my status at the moment.

Not me, actually I'm quite pleased with 0703, previously got 0604 and couldn't get 3.8 with HT, SS stable on < 1.27 Vcore, now it works...

So far, I'm pleased with 0703. I bumped up from 0506. I didn't really notice any more or less stability though.. seemed to be the same for me.

PPL using IBT Use 8 threads if you got HT on

Theres a good chance its not going to pass, Auto on the threads never puts full load on the Cpu most is like 50%

Even better, stop using IBT and use Linx, and run with 5200mb memory selected for 20 passes.

Soemtimes you have to run it a few times with max memory and stop it to get enough memory freed up to be able to select 5200mb
