I used newegg. I chose the option where if they do not get my board withing 30 days they charge me but ship my board immediately. A few key notes for newegg. They 1 day shipped my new board via UPS. They paid my return shipping label.

Friday 3pm Phone Call from Newegg. " New board is here, can we use your on file Credit card? Your new board will be 1 day shipped. You have 30 days to get your old board back to us "

Monday 3pm New board comes. Install new board.
Thursday 5pm Old board gets shipping via UPS back to newegg.

Thursday ( Today ) Email from newegg saying RMA was good, they got my defective board. Everything is closed up.

Have you disabled Internal PLL Over-Voltage? This should help the cold boot problems for OCs under 4.5Ghz. Generally you can tell when you need it when you are unable to post with higher OCs.

I just read that you do have it disabled. Hmmmm i dunno , i haven't had many problems with 1305 since i figured out the PLL problem. Much needed smooth sailing right now. I was very very sad with the performance and instability of the UD7, discouraged me greatly to attempt OCing the sabertooth. But things are looking up .

Yup just finished the refund RMA with my UD7, if you start it on a monday or Tuesday it will be finished up by Thursday easily. Now just waiting the 3-5 business days for my 340 dollar refund!

LLC is on Ultra high. Volts should be fine since I managed to get it to do a 200 pass run of LinX

Well what i did was just use all of the recommended settings for the 4.8 OC from this guide,
http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1578110 , i am just running a 4.5 OC but had stability problems when testing with prime95 when i used the recommended settings of everything on auto.

Only things i did different was leave speed-step enabled , Disabled PLL overvoltage, and disabled C states, this has given me very solid testing. Working my way down from 1.4v at 4.5 to find the lowest i can go , currently will test 1.385 tonight. Its nice to see my temps dropping considerably on load each time i drop a lower voltage notch.

My chip needs higher volts than most of the chips i have seen, so i think i will hit the wall around 1.35v for 4.5Ghz , hopefully not though. Once single out the lowest possible voltage for a stable 4.5 gonna play around with 5.0 when i get my rasa kit in a few weeks.

Yes. I took the battery out and updated BIOS. It seems it helped for the time being.

Read the post by silkysean about offset and LLC. I am running 4.6GHz @ 1.336 in AIDA, 1.312 in Prime95... The "additional Turbo volts" option is a key.

Read this:

LLC on REGULAR and Offset @ +0.140 = 1.368v under load (1.088 on idle) PRIME STABLE
LLC on MEDIUM and Offset @ +0.095 = 1.368v under load (1.040 on idle) PRIME STABLE
LLC on HIGH and Offset @ + 0.060 = 1.368v under load (1.000 on idle) PRIME STABLE
LLC on ULTRA HIGH and Offset @ + 0.025 = 1.368v under load (0.982 on idle) - BSOD
LLC on EXTREME and Offset @ - 0.020 = 1.368v under load (INSTANT DEATH)

Here you go. (Template and settings are courtesy of silkysean)

Please pay particular attention to ATB (additional turbo voltage). It helped me to stabilize/increase vcore under Prime95 and in idle. I did some testing and these are my load values with the settings below applied.

In AIDA64 - 1.336 (max)
In Linx it fluctuates - 1.288/1.296/1.304
In Prime95 small FFTs - 1.304 (min) / 1.312 (max)

4.6Ghz - 1.016v idle / 1.336v Max Load (only in AIDA64) - 60 degrees max.

AI Overclock Tuner: Manual
BLCK Freq: 100.00
Turbo Ratio: Enabled (All Cores)
By All Cores: 46
Internal PLL OverVoltage: Enabled
Mem Freq: (AS PER YOUR RAM)
EPU Power Saving: Disabled

Load-Line Calibration: Regular
VRM Freq: Manual Set to 350
Phase Control: Extreme
Duty Contorl: Extreme
CPU Current Capability: 100%
CPU OverVoltage: Offset Mode
CPU Offset: + 0.060
DRAM Voltage: (AS PER YOUR RAM)
VCCSA Voltage: Auto
VCCIO Voltage: Auto
CPU PLL Voltage: Auto
PCH Voltage: Auto
CPU Spread Spectrum: Disabled

Additional Turbo Voltage: +0.012 (start with +0.012, you may want to increase it)
Intel Adaptive Thermal Monitor: Enabled
Intel Virtualization: Disabled
Intel SpeedStep: Enabled

Just tried out the regular LLC, and it's working pretty well for now.

Temps seem to be a bit lower using prime95 for some reason.

I'm running LLC regular and offset 0.060 for 1.296v on load and around 1.080 on idle. Trying 4.4GHz and working my way up again.
