Gigabyte UD4 manual voltage overvolting

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Alright, so here's the question (not about stability, but about getting an option to stay in place):

On the Gigabyte UD4, I can set my voltage to what I need it to be at my 44x multiplier (1.32v) and everything works. However, I am trying to set up everything with the power saving settings enabled.

What I did was I went into the voltage setting parameters after booting up with a 34x multiplier, and on the left-hand side the voltage reads "1.26v". So I set the voltage setting to the right to "normal" (which keeps it at the left-hand voltage), and the overvolting parameter below I set to "0.08v".

This worked on the first bootup. I would get 1.26v when my multiplier wasn't going up to 44x, and I'd get my desired voltage at 44x when that kicked in.

THE PROBLEM: However, upon rebooting, the left-hand side voltage automatically changes itself based on my current multiplier. It goes up to "1.355v" (on the right hand side "normal" keeps it at whatever the left-hand side says). I can't manually change the left-hand side. So my overvolting option then takes me up to 1.4v approximately.

Now, when I set the voltage manually to "1.26v", I cannot use the overvolting option. So that's also an unfortunate thing (if I could manually set it to 1.26, and use the overvolting option, I'd be happy).

Any opinions on what to do? I don't want to have to boot up, set my multi to 34x, save and exit and boot up, go back in, set my voltage to normal (since my left-hand side voltage would be back to 1.26), and then finally boot into Windows every time.

I realize this is a long/complicated question which pertains specifically to the Gigabyte boards. Maybe I'll PM someone who might know.

if you don't use the incremental addition of voltage and just set a voltage the EIST and C1E will reduce the voltage when idle.

I have those both on, but when I set my voltage to what I want it at (the desired voltage to keep my overclock stable), it's constantly at that voltage setting 24/7 on bootup (while EIST/C1E downclocks me, I stick at the same voltage).

There doesn't appear to be any other setting other than "NORMAL" which sets it to the BIOS preset (which is defined based on whatever the multi is on bootup, meaning it goes too high and I can't get it lower), "AUTO" which I cannot control at all (so any OC is unstable), or whatever amount I set (which cannot budge down no matter what).

auto wont make your OC stable at 4.5 or even 4.7ghz give it a try. And idk what the problem is my voltage drops when C1E, EIST, and C3,c6 states are enabled while OCing.

Ugh this is weird.

Now it's reading 1.30v (as I have set it for 4.2GHz), and that's when idle. When stressed, it goes down to 1.24v

Sense, this is making none!
