The ULTIMATE Sandy Bridge OC Guide + P67A-UD7 Performance Review - Page 4

post #31 of 713

ok you have to use @BIOS, i just responded to your thread over at TT.

here is the deal with F6X and F6E, F6X is after F6E, F6E fixes S3 sleep state, and F6X adds CPU PLL OverVoltage, use F6X. I bet that official release BIOS will be out tomorrow or very soon, as you need to keep in mind that these are all BETA bioses, even the ones on Gigabyte's website. THe Most Stable are those with no letters after the number, like for the UD7 F3 and F5.

F6X was released before becuase they wanted to get CPU PLL Overvoltage option out there before official release. BIOS F6 shoudl have CPu PLL OVervoltage.

Man I'm getting frustrated with this board. Thanks for the reply didn't even see it was you over there. Updated with @bios all was well. Rebooted, entered on the same settings I was using. 45x100

Wouldn't boot OC error. Then it says I have a check sum error with the bios and it installs F3 from the backup. Thank God it had the backup I guess.


So now I'm at 4ghz just wondering wth. Can't say this build has gone very smooth. Cant blame it all on the board. But the board likes to reboot a couple times sometimes. Then it won't power my keyboard so when I hit delete it doesn't take me to the bios.


I know its brand new and all but its been a headache. Seriously considering returning it for the pro but I have a couple weeks so I will wait to see if some kinks get worked out. I may just leave the beta bios's alone as I haven't had much luck.

Not sure what was the deal with that checksum error. It didn't happen until I got the OC error.

Sin fantastic review...

I was going to get the Asus p8 deluxe. But after reading what you was saying about the asus features messing things up, i may reconsider.

I take it these UD7 boards have none of the features asus have so therefore everything on gigabyte works great?

Will Asus fix this or shall i just go with Gigabyte?

What are the pros and cons of both of them?

One last thing, i have seen in the review basically ram doesnt speak out as much so a strong kit is not really needed?

Many thanks!

Thanks for the BIOS information, Sin. I'll try F6x unless they come out with something else shortly. I have been wondering. Where are the latest Beta BIOS's "officially" posted other than Gigabyte's site which doesn't have the latest. It is nice someone is maintaining them on these forums but I am wondering if there is another official link where they are posted or where do you get them. I used to have a link from Germany for an older Gigabyte board but it does not exist anymore. Thanks.

Sin I can say nothing but what has been said before, EXCELLENT REVIEW.

I ordered my 2600k which should be here on Tue. I am about to pull the trigger on a UD5. The only question I have left is how much of a performance hit will not having the NF200 be? I like you have the GTX 570, 1 atm but was considering picking up a second.

So I reflashed booted up at 4.2. But I'm leaving so I had to shut it down. No error this time though.

OK lights out, do me a favor, and use BIOS F5, you don't need CPU PLL, if you aren't hitting more than 4.8ghz then do not use F6X, use F4. Do you have an AIM? or MSN messenger account, PM me and I can maybe put you into contact with someone who has your board and has great sucess with it. PM me and I can help you out furthur.

Tweaktown forums are official Gigabyte USA support and they have all the BIOSes up there. Official first release BIOS will come soon.

Well I wouldn't say that much, NF200 is more for 3 way SLI, SLi at 8x,8x is no problem, it works fine. Go for the UD5 its a solid board. Make sure to use latest BIOS on teh UD5, I was talking to a GIgabyte guy last night, he had them fix up a lot of things recently when he went OCing the board.

You got the game you wanna give me or a benchmark program, I am really not a gamer, so I don't jut have all these games. HAWX had a benhmark program,COD4 I had for some reason, and since they gave me these cards, man that game looks sick. I spent money on 3dmark11 haha and SLI doesn't work with it, so that was a bummer. I get higher scores with single GPU on 11.

Oh and the BIOS blowing up, its beta man, you are almost a Beta tester, and tomorrow is first day of official release, don't worry. I have had many earlier BIOSes do the same thing, same thing happened with X58 before release. Just wait for a new BIOS or Use F5 or F3 whatever your originial BIOS is becuase those are very stable.
