I just built my second build and this is my first post on this site. Here is my build:
Intel i7 950
GA-X58A-UD5 Rev1
Prolimatech Megahalems (2x46cfm fans)
Corsair Domanators 1600 C8 3x2GB
EVGA GTX 295 Co-Op
OCZ Vertex 2 100gb (2x50gb RAID0)
Corsair 700D Case
Corsair 750TX PSU

I easily overclocked to 4.2 easily. I know ill get flac for this but I had everything on auto except for vcore in Bios its 1.368.. I ran 21x200 (4.2Ghz)
for Linx 2 hours, P95 small 2 hours, and P95 blend for almost 9 hours. I know I'm stable enough here. Im using 8-8-8-24-2t at 1600. But as im typing Im testing 7-8-7-24-1t 1600 and its 40min stable Linx so far and counting. I was only hoping for 4.2 which I already reached. But I think I can go further. I really wanna know what the max voltages are I can't find much info, or I'm looking in the wrong places.

I wanna play and push this to the max to learn its limits. I bought overclocking insurance from Microcenter for extra $20 so I might as well push it. what should I do. Im lost when it comes to the pll and other volltages cause when I change anyother volltage im not stable. With auto Im stable though for hours.

Side note I was pretty upset when I found out I had rev1 I bought it few days ago I thought rev1 was long gone. So I went in the store bought the board then installed everything and found out last night I had rev1 didn't think to check if it was rev1 or rev2 cause I thought only rev2 was in stores now. Is there a big difference between the 12 - 16 phase power of rev1 and rev2 ?

recap: two questions - What should I try next on my OC and is there a big difference between 12 and 16 phase power (I don't even know what it is) ?

[QUOTE=koji;11440445]I had it with F6x, upgraded to F7x same story there, it's gone since F8c on my Corsair Sandforce 1200 F120. Not that it really matters a lot though, just annoying to see an error code pop while booting.

Good luck with finding impressions or update details on those beta biosses, your best bet is just trying them yourself. There are too many being released and hardly anyone is posting impressions on them, or even trying them, my advise is not upgrading your bios if you don't need to, if it wasn't for that silly SSD I would still be rocking F6x. If it works, it works.


And yes the F6X is a ROCK and i will keep it until there is something will reduce the voltage and keep it stable is F6 doing with me at least

Thanks for your always helping A+

Welcome to OCN and the Giga X58-UD* thread. Just a quick note, your CPU-Z validation should have your OCN name on it. When you go to Validate there is a spot to change your name.

I think auto is fine for very minor or small overclocks but once you start getting close to a 1 Ghz on your chip the auto is really starting to overvolt everything.
Most of the volts you can leave on auto but the important ones like Vcore and QPI/VTT need to be set.
I recommend setting as many volts as you can manually.

As far as your Rev1.0, you have more Phase VRM's which means it can handle the load and heat more effectively, so some say the Rev1 is better then Rev2.

Here is a little guide on voltages http://www.evga.com/forumsarchive/tm.asp?m=100494809

After playing with the voltages it seems that I have to use 1.47 to 1.5 QTT to run stable at my 4.2 (200x21) this seems high but it is stable. Is this way to high already or can it get pushed harder ?

back to Rev1 vs Rev2 I have UD5 so I thought Rev1 was lower with 12 and Rev2 has 16 ?

Hi all,

Just ordered a new PC from iBuyPower with GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD5, 12 GB memory and a whole bunch of goodies. The delivery is expected in 7-10 days. Meanwhile, I have downloaded the motherboard manual and am reading it from cover to cover, wallowing in anticipation

I plan to add two 2 TB drives (to ICH10R controller .. these are 3 GB/s drives) and configure tham as RAID1 (mirror). This would be my first time with RAIDS of any sort.

I have 2 questions:

1. If, for some reason, my BIOS gets hosed and I have to revert to the backup BIOS with default settings, how will get back to the way I was with my RAID1? Pages 87-94 of the mobo manual describes setting up the RAID for the first time .. which results in loss of all data on the disks. How do I get back to my RAID1 configuration if/when I have to re-configure the BIOS?

2. If one of my drives fails, and I replace it with a new drive, how do I get my RAID1 configuration back? Would it be enough to plug it in ans restart the system (and the RAID would get built automatically)?

Is there any documentation on issues related to RAID maintainance for the ICH10R and other controllers on the motherboard?

Thanks
Aloke

That is high for VTT.

As far as the difference you can see it on the first page right below the pics.

Never mind about Q 2. above. Page 114 of the manual describes rebuiling the RAID after installing a new disk.

I am still puzzled about Q 1. How will get back to the data on the RAID volume if I lose my BIOS settings and have to re-enter the settings in the BIOS (or restore the BIOS)?

Thread Starter 
Ok NoGuru he is talking about the UD5 rev 1.0 vs rev 2.0 where the UD5 gained phases going to rev 2.0, yes rev 2.0 UD5 has 16 phases as does the rev 2.0 UD7, they are the same board including trace placements and everything. Voltage read points are the same its kinda scary. Listen There is not that much difference between the rev 1.0 and 2 and if you look on the first page of this thread, i made a little diagram pointing out the differences. There is also a gulftown mod needed for rev 1.0 x58a board and the rev 2.0 should already have it done.


Anyways, Alokep RAID1 means that if the raid array is broken in any way all of your data will still be on one drive that can be accessed as a single drive. So if bios corrupts,(which is almost never does) then RAID array should be just fine, but if its not you re-build just like the other option.

UNOE: you need to post all of your settings, and manually overclock, you really need to learn how to do that before the board over volts everything. Look at the first page for info, as well as the spreadsheet fromt he big red link shows many other people's settings for OC, take a look and post your setting like they do.
