The UD7 was a great looking board but just didn't get the job done. I had heard so many rumors and good things about the M4E board that it wasn't that hard to make the switch
Yes my thoughts exactly!!!! The dual BIOS was such a pain!!! I since solved the problem by flashing both BIOS to FX8 , which has taken care of the random reboots that like you have described perfectly would double and tripple post or even more in my case sometimes!!! I was sooooo furious!

When the triple+ posting was happening it would almost always end up in a BIOS checksum error and main BIOS would revert back to shipping BIOS of F3 and i would loose all my BIOS settings!!! This little problem of the rolling reboot posts and having to reinstall the BIOS without fail added about 5-10 minutes of useless extra nonsense to deal with when i was overclocking! Overclocking being the tedious venture it is i was about ready to jump out a window, it was very discouraging!!!

Yes, i agree the board is great looking, and i wish i didn't run into these problems, people are getting great results with the board and they are A, either lying about not getting the same problems we reported, or B, have just been VERY lucky!

I made the decision of going with this board because its Gigabytes flagship board at the moment and of course didnt foresee the headaches i would have , but man i should have went with ASUS off the bat , the M4E seems AWESOME! I am not clowning on the board because like i said people are getting great results, but it has left a bad taste in my mouth, i wish i was a noob and doing something wrong that i didn't know of but sadly that is not the case!

Yup, I mean granted it is a great board, I just didn't have the best of luck with it.

~I've read about that fix to as far as the bios go but unfortunately I had already gotten rid of the board.

Oh well though, at the end of the day it's what makes you happy so go with what you like best! GL!

I am almost positive i will be going with the M4E when i actually am able to, revised boards need to hurry up and come out!!! Even if i was able to snag a board right now i would! But its a rough search for any p67 boards right now!

That video on the first page was painfully cheesy but im thinking you were going for that. Good job though always good to see everyday people foolin around with high end tech.

The USB suddenly disappearing i get a lot with the gigabyte boards, however i also encounter it with my mouse on the M4E once but it was easier to deal with just pull it out and plug it in again and it will work. The gigabyte if you plug it back in the same port it will sometimes still not work.

Overall i guess every board maker is on a time race to get their bios working stable and everything just work as it should. The single thing i dont like on the M4E is that 2400 on the memory just flat out dont work at all, doesnt matter the timing or the ram use it will simply not boot.

Best to remove it for now till they work it out, also the little sli incident i hope when all my gtx580s arrived it will work otherwise ill be sitting on a expensive board and gcs that dont do anything......

Just a question, will M4E fit in my FT01? I know it says "extended ATX" but it's not really extended atx...

Well i will have a similar setup to James as well, just a coincidence.

For those who have a Logitech G15 keyboard and/or G5 mouse, there is a known problem with the latest Logitech drivers and ALL P67 boards. Logitech are working on it.

My Logitech G15 was also ''disappearing'', so was my mouse sometimes, until I uninstalled all softwares and drivers for my G15, and then installed an older driver and softare revision. Now I don't have any ''disappearing''...
