for the keyboard problem, wait until you have picture on the screen then press delete.

Try a newer BIOS like F6X should be good if you aren't using it already.

My bios always resets back to F3 at stock clocks from F7A after a "failed overclock." I tried saving the CMOS with F11 when I had the F7A BIOS but when it resets back to F3 the saves aren't there anymore and I have reflash the bios again and reset all the options. Is there a way to prevent this from happening or to just load my F7A bios settings instantly?

still cannot flash bios from f3 with newest @bios, i might try qflash.

stress testing with prime95 blend right now.

Yesterday there was an error 2.5 hours in. I raised the Vcore .05 and set memory to standard, then there was an error 56 minutes in. I just raised Vcore and additional .05 and raised vtt up .05. My memory is running at stock timings, but I am not sure what could be causing the error. It runs Intel Burn Test fine. It ran SuperPi 32m without error. I want it to be stable because I would like to try Folding.

*Edit*

Just gave an error again:

Worker #4
Fatal Error: Rounding was .5, expected less than .4

2 hours 6 minutes

I do not know what I need to switch to get this stable, any opinions?

Hey guys, I have some questions about voltage readings...

Right now I am stress testing at x46, 1.35V, LLC2. From the beginning, no matter what my voltage setting, load or idle, CPU-Z has reported 1.056V. Is there a way to fix this?

HWMonitor shows CPU VCORE val-1.06, min-1.06, max-1.37 and CPU val-1.39, min-1.37, and max-1.39. What is the different between the CPU VCORE and CPU readings?

BIOS F6X
Turbo - Disabled
C1E - Disabled
EIST - Disabled
C3/C6 States - Disabled
CPU Thermal Monitor - Disabled
PLL - Enabled

Thank you!

Well, that's what Jonesey I7 posted on tweaktown:

Straight from the horses mouth....... "Gigabyte will supply no more support for the p67 motherboards as they are under official recall" In other words, enjoy the bios you have now and live with it until we release new boards.
If that's so then we really are in limbo.

I've experienced similar things, using F6x. Generally a bad overclock (though once it was simply after saving BIOS settings) will cause it to cycle 4-6 times and then it finally posts. I'd say this has happened about 5 times, and half the time it ends up reflashing the F3 bios.

The most recent time it happened, I left the computer running Prime95 with Windows 7 power saving settings on (blah), the computer went to sleep, and when I tried waking it, it again started rebooting repeatedly. This time the only way to stop it was to power it off.

I had work so I just left it off, I'll see what happens when I get back

Btw:

You need to use CPU-Z 1.56.3

NO you will continue to receive BIOS updates, jonesy was wrong, i showed GB right after he posted it and they posted to make sure people know they are NOT stopping BIOS support.

That is a fantastic guide you've posted, as a soon-to-be owner I will find it invaluable when all of my items arrive!

I do have one question in the meantime. I've been searching all over and simply cannot find a consensus: if I want to do a triple-monitor Eyefinity setup using 2500k CPU and dual 6950s (either unlocked or overclocked up near 6970s), will I hit a bottleneck using a x8/x8 board like the Asus Sabertooth p67 versus this Gigabyte UD7 with its N200-enabled x16/x16?

It's 'just' $100 difference, but for my uses I only see two differences: the Sabertooth looks cooler (I'm a sucker for the heatsink shield thingy) and costs a lot less, but is limited to x8/x8.

I swear I've read Toms forums, and [H], and this, and a bunch of other places and I just can't find a straight answer. Most of what I see are people hypothesizing like "It's a very slight difference, a few %....unless you use triple monitor setups" and then there's no further details about the performance hit with super-high resolutions at x8/x8.
