Yes, if your LLC only allows for the option to go to level 2, you have an older BIOS. You should update to the newer B3 F4a from here : http://ggts.gigabyte.eu/FileList/1069247/p67aud73.f4a

Once you download it, save it to a ubs flash drive (this is the easiest unless you know how to create a boot disk with .iso but then I dont think you would ask for help w/ this).

Ok so once you save the file to your usb flash drive, reboot, open BIOS by pushing del during startup.

Now you need to flash (Qflash) your BIOS with the new firmware. I think the shortcut is F8. It has a list of them on the bottom of the BIOS screen.

Once you do that, it asks you where to load the file from, if you have your usb flash drive pugged in, it probably shows as a HDD. Press enter to open the directory.

Once you open the usb drive you should see the file in there. Select the file and push enter. A progress bar will pop up and it should be done in just a matter of a few seconds. Once finished, it will say hit ESC to restart / quit (cant remember).

Once you do that you can restart.

After you restart go back into BIOS by pushing del key (same as before). Select Load Optimized Defaults and push Enter. Save and exit BIOS. It will restart again... After that you should be good.

Now load all your BIOS settings again.

Hope that helps, let me know if you have any questions

Hello guys. I have a question for you : is F3 bios better then stock F2 that comes with B3?
I'm asking cause max I can push from my cpu atm is x48 multi, and x49/x50 simply won't boot past the initial giga screen.
Also I had 1.32v on vcore with LLC2, which gave me 1.356 under load ( at least if I am to believe ET6 and HWmonitor), which passex LinuX 25 loops with easy, but crashed on idle with x0124. So I've uped the voltage to 1.344 in idle -> same error. Uped vtt to 1.07 -> same error. ATM looking at 1.356 idle... which fluctiates between 1.356 and 1.344 after a while, and goes to 1.378 under load. Just in case that will fail is there any other ideas that you may suggest to stabilize my system. If I can't get to 5ghz, I would love to stay at 4.8ghz 24/7 stable lol

I'm currently using the f3 bios & I've stabilized my system at 4.8 ghz with prime95 blend 12 hour run.
I think you need to raise your LLC for more stable voltage so it won't drop much.

Well so far it seems that my last attempt cured my idle bsod issue aand I still get the same ( at least based on HW and other software) voltage under load as before, w00t. Hopefully LLC2 on F2 bios don't throw the voltages too far from what HWmonitor,cpuz, and ET6 show. I would love to stay under 1.4v in all times.

Now... Before I go and experiment with F3 bios or whatever the beta bios you guys will reccomend. Is pushing QPI/VTT up to 1.1 realy worth it? And does PLL overvolt option improves the OC multiplier potential? If it does -> is it safe to stay with this feature on for 24/7 use ?

Man, it's people like you that make the world a better place. I would have been straining my brain to figure out why i couldn't go over 4.5GHZ, but your witty sarcasms reminded me that CPU SPread Spectrum has always been bad lol!

I'm BSODing after half an hour on prime blend @5.0ghz. I'm thinking of raising the LLC. Is level 10 safe? Also does changing the QTT voltage make any difference?

Guys, i need your opinion i have a little problem mayb? I cant get my computer stable with default ddr3 voltage which is 1.5v these same modules were in my amd setup they r rated cl9 1T 1.5v 1333mhz and i had to use auto voltage (pumps the voltage if needed) on the memory on my m4n98td evo board or else i ended up having hardware fatal error in prime95 blend test under 10mins and now these modules are in my sabertooth p67 mb and i have to give them 1.55 to not doing the same thing so i am asking is this a safe thing? or could there be some other trick?

Edit: Seems like im still getting prime hardware error even with 1.55 dram voltage

Edit: Ok, ive been strugglin' what the hell is wrong with my setup pumped to 1.6v no problems anymore problem solved.
