Why did you buy your Gigabyte P67 board? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
bought mine these reasons:
1. I needed the sli/cfx option along with the space for a reg pci expansion... all the other boards cover or dont include the pci slot with a video card that takes up 2 slots.
2. reviewers said it was one of the best overclocking boards period!.
3. color scheme.
4. OCing without the dull turbo mode... CONSTANT OC BABY!

I bought mine because it was recommended by someone here, and i LIKE THE x58-ud3r very much.

I ended up returning it. The main reason I first went with gigabyte is the rock solid voltage regulation. I notice on my asus boards that the vcore bounces all over the place under load. This is the main thing I miss about the UD4.

You can have stable settings, but if the vcore dips too low you get a bsod.

yea I was that person, I am sorry it didn't work out for you, the funny thing is that the next day after your bought/returned it a new better BIOS was released that woudl have solved your problems. I knwo that checksum error thing is scary, I understand, i hope they fix that, even tho its not a big deal becuase the backup works perfect, it is a pain. There is a way to flash the backup to a newer BIOS so when that happens it reloads the new BIOS.

Well hey your example goes to show that not all chips are created equal tho. I hope you are liking the 2600K, even though i don't think you shoudl have upgraded, but hey you are like me we gotta have the new.

Hi everybody! It appears there's a new beta bios out for the gigabyte boards. Check it out! I'll be giving this F6C bios a try later today.

According to this post at xstremesystems, it fixes the AHCI/RAID issue and they were able to update the bios via Q-Flash on the UD5.
