Gigabyte UD4 or UD5? Which is better for my setup? - Page 5

post #41 of 71
gigabyte has told me over and over again, that the ud5 and the ud7 are for extreme ocers, like those pushing for 5.5+ghz, and the UD4 is for under that, but the thing is that the UD4 can do high OCes too, but i think the UD5 and UD7 handle subzero much more smoothly.

Its a B3 and I get terrible loops, the bios is laggy, ram sucks with it, etc.
Jiggabyte needs to step it up on their bios. the f3 beta is better, but f2 is simply trash

More that its for people who want more features.
Motherboards dont make any difference for overclocking on 1155 since its all chip limits (boards make a difference but not for max clocks)

I have not experienced your problems on the UD4 with either F2 or F3 bios? I can run stable at 5.2Ghz and 1.48V.

It is a stable board series. You just got a lemon.

You will notice no difference on x16/x16, x16/x8, or x8/x8. Even with the best cards in existence.

I did have bad boot loop issues with the f2 bios, but things are improving with every bios update.
Lemon hardware does happen though.

Dont think its a lemon.
The boards are just meh.

I can do 5.5ghz all day with it, just has a bunch of negatives to it. I suppose I got spoiled while I ran my rampage3 =/

Won't your processor crap out sooner running an overclock of like 5ghz even with proper cooling? That's the only reason I don't think i'd go nearly that high. I'd probably just do a moderate overclock so I have some reliability in the mix.

If you can afford then get the ud5 but if you want to save money then get the ud4, the ud5 features are nice but think whether you will actually use them, like boards with 12 usb ports and I have never used more then 4 at any given time.
