Yay! Thank you sooo much. I love you guys. I went ahead and installed all the new memory sticks and followed your instructions to the letter. Its now working beautifully. Thank you! thumb.gif

I have a GA-X58A-UD5 rev 1 and I just upgraded my processor from i7 920 to an x5650 and am having some problems overclocking it. My BIOS was originally F1 so I had to update it for the processor to be recognized. At first I tried the 2 latest versions from Gigabyte (F8A and F7J) but any time I changed anything in the settings from auto it wouldn't even boot to the BIOS.

I then tried F6 which let me change most settings and I was able to get BCLK up to 180. To get any further I think I need to lower the uncore multiplier to lower the voltage required on Vtt. When I try to change it from the default of x20, boot fails and I have to clear CMOS to get back into the BIOS.

My RAM multiplier is set to 8x so I tried to set the uncore to 16x. I have also tried 19x to keep it as close to what boots as I could but neither worked. From what I have read, the minimum is 1.5x RAM multiplier so I think I should be able to go down to 12x but nothing seems to work other than 20x.

I don't remember if it was this site but I saw some posts saying the UD7 had this problem and it was fixed with a BIOS update. I have also seen some people with the UD5 rev 2 board that have been able to change the multiplier successfully but haven't seen anything about people getting it to work on the rev 1.

Anyone else having this problem? Is it a problem with the BIOS? Is there a version that doesn't have this problem?

Try the x58 club.
Have you tried reset the BIOS to optimized default first and then set the BCLK to 180?

I wasn't sure which thread would be better, I'll post it to that one too.

Last time I cleared it I only changed BCLK, vcore and QPI voltage. Everything else was still at the stock setting and it still wouldn't work with any other multiplier. I'll reset it and try again with only changing that multiplier.

I reset to optimized defaults and changed the memory multiplier to 8x (default was 10x) and the uncore multiplier to 16x (default was 20x) and it failed to boot. I changed the memory multiplier just so I could leave the uncore at 2x memory.

I had the same problem lowering memory multiplier but leaving uncore at 20 solved my issues although it is limiting my oc at 4.5 if you find an answer to this problum I would be interested in knowing thanks.

Just out of curiosity, have you stress test your CPU at stock and mentest??

I'm on a UD7 R2 [pretty darn similar] and everything works at advertised - multipliers etc

I think it is something to do with the Xeons and having 2 qpi lanes I never had this problem before I got it with my 920 on the same bios. And I have not memtestd yet but I have passed 20 runs of ibt at very high at my current settings if i lower uncore instant no boot memory error on debug led

If you have the right BIOS it's should just work. Are you on the last BIOS or the last Beta BIOS (cant check stuff right now)?
