New GA-P67A-UD7-B3 - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
Just an update...

I have increased Vcore in the BIOS from 1.460v (24 hour P95 stable on old board) to 1.480v for my new board. 1.475v crashed after 5.5 hours P95 blend. For now I will keep it on 1.480v and I may test P95 again when a new BIOS is out. I am using F2. There is an F3c beta that I could try but I think I will wait for the next version unless someone tells me F3c is a major improvement.

I am surprised my new board requires so much more Vcore because I thought it was mostly the CPU and not the boards that were important for overclocking i7. I assumed Vcore would be about the same--maybe not in the BIOS but as recorded by software. With 1.480v in BIOS and LLC1 I get 1.464v on idle and 1.428v on load. Old board was 1.452v on idle and 1.416v on load.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2009/12...817/7aud73.zip that is f3c straight from tweaktown. http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...beta-bios.html

I ended up using Easytune to determine my vcore while on Prime

I couldn't resist and based on what Falkentyne said above I have installed BIOS F3c so I'll see how that goes. The BIOS is listed as F3c JZ. Does anyone know what JZ stands for. Thanks.

Thanks for your comments bratas. I am using LLC1 and with BIOS F3c the vcore is reading the same under load and at idle as with BIOS F2. Did you notice something different on yours with F3c or how do you mean it helped. I see you are using the UD5 while I have the UD7.

That sounds like good progress. Thanks. I was worried my vcore is getting too high so the new BIOS may help.
