[Build Log] Danger Den Torture Rack and 3xGTX 580 Lightning Extreme Sabertooth+M4E - Page 5

post #41 of 105
I cannot get to 4.8GHz without my temps breaching 80c. 4.8GHz was my goal but I have cheap cooling.

1.4V is pretty safe from what I'm hearing...the dudes who are running 1.6-1.8 are scary.

I'm adding a 2nd Blade Master to my Hyper 212+ for a little push and pull. Let's see how that does for my temps. Might be able to boost PLL and VTT and more vCore to get this to 4.8GHz.

The board itself was 219 bucks on tiger direct.
Ended up costing 240 something with 2 day shipping.

Over all i am very happy with this board, it is not giving me close to the amount of problems i had with the UD7 and that was a 340 dollar board. I bought the UD7 for the 16x, 16x bandwidth is had on PCI slot, although now that i think of it im never gonna run SLI and always stick with the single card set up. My 580 is more than enough for what i do. Just extremely glad i no longer am running the UD7 i hate that board so much.

Gonna update my progress with the testing i did last night, ran a 5 hour prime run at x44 multi , which was 4532.6 Mhz. My chip is extremely average, definitely gonna make the switch from the H70 to a rasa 360 kit.

Anyways pics of EUFI and Prime screen incoming in a bit once i finish my oatmeal!
Pics will be on the first page with the rest of my screens.

What didn't you like about the UD7? I have a UD4 on the way so I am kind of curious.

Well , the p67 UD7.... hmmm where to begin....this is pre B3 revision , so i cant speak towards the board now, maybe some of the kinks worked out.

The problems were extremely annoying, for instance, i would have OCs that tested stable in prime for hours on end, i would shut my computer down then get an "error has occurred due to overclocking" this happened on a weekly basis or any time i turned off my pc. Eventually this got too annoying so i just reverted to stock and used the easy tune 6 OC program that came with the board, it allowed you to change the clock from stock to 4.1 in windows if real time bios change was enabled. This too gave me problems , it was hit or miss whether i had to go into the bios and toggle the real time bios setting in order for the real time bios change to work in windows EVEN if it was enabled already in BIOS itself.

Hmmm more? Yup , any time i manipulated certain settings in BIOS , CPU PLL comes to mind either enabling or disabling upon saving i would go into a rolling reboot where all of my OC setting would be set to stock. OCing this board was a nightmare simply becuase settings being saved was such a massive issue. The rolling reboots made me want to pull my hair out.


Just an overall extremely bad experience with the board. It was sad that i reverted to using the noob OC program in windows as apposed to using the settings i wanted. Definitely felt like i was not getting my moneys worth. It is now sitting in a box in my room with neweggs pre-paid shipping label, which will go out tomorrow so i can get my $300+ refund!

Still unsure whether that money is gonna go towards water cool set up or the difference money to step up to the gtx 590 , hmmmm decisions decisions he he

That was MY experience with the board, although some people have had great success with it, i was not one of them. Went Asus and i am never looking back to gigabyte again .
