Ok, I really can't tell if it's the chip that sucks or these God forsaken bios from Gigabyte I have to work with. It takes 1.3v for 4.5ghz. Haven't even thought about trying for 5ghz, as these bios really are terrible. I set voltage and it reads as three different numbers in the bios alone!!

FWIW

Just today replaced my gigabyte UD4 after they pissed me off with the new BIOS that didn't work in AHCI mode. Microcenter got the Biostar TP67XE in, and I exchanged mine for it (and pocketed a nice bit of cash too).

It is a very very nice board, and the BIOS is light years ahead of the GB BIOS.

Yea, I'm debating on sending this one back and getting an asus, or just waiting it out a couple weeks as my water loop won't be back together for that long anyway, and let Gigabyte catch up in the bios game. Seems like these boards need about .1v more than the Asus boards for the same overclocks atm. I bet they'll get it right though. Don't know what I want to do right now. Takes 1.51v for 5ghz, and I can't run prime as my temps hit 72c real quick.... even though I know it's not near the max temps, I don't want to risk degradation, and will just wait for my loop back. PLUS my "replacement" chip will be here Monday, gonna see if it's any better of an oc'r.

I have Gigabyte's P67A-UD7 (upgraded from my P55A-UD7).

The flagship Gigabyte boards are STELLAR. In my experience, the bios tweaking requires a bit more fine-tuning to achieve stability; that said, a stable Gigabyte overclock is rock-steady. Researching the component selection, engineering choices, and even the single pipe aluminum VRM/chipset/nf200 (though irritatingly impeding the x1 pci-e slot) paints a picture of exemplary development & advancement delivered in a solitary generation of progress.

Detailed P67A-UD7 write-up - > Very informative read on the Gigabyte series of P67 boards (link follows to off-site location, courtesy xtremesystems.org)

Regarding the club, after a very frustrating night of very meticulous adjustment, I've managed to accomplish with 1.49 volts dialed into the bios a brilliantly solid 4.9+100.2 bclock. It's so reliable with 1830 MHz RAM i'm paranoid to jinx myself so early in my 2600K experience. Definitely gonna tread carefully before pushing further. Props to those of ya'll who've eclipsed the standard & earned a position in this club, though! thumb.gif
