Does the BIOS give you LLC options? Usually Gigabyte does best with Medium LLC. Actually I think you should make sure you have the latest BIOS first. BIOS update download page for UD5 rev. 1.x:
no there is no LLC option at rev. 1.x unfortunately
I was able to reach 4350 mhz, but on bios the Vcore 1.52 , then for some reason on windows that's 1.44v , but according to CPU z most of the time is just 1.40v from time to time reached 1.44 but not more than that.
Yes I agreed that this mobo is not the best.
Cooling system for the CPU is ThermalRight TRUE 120+ 120 cooler (70 cfm air flow)... as I only have 2 (90 mm) coolers inside the case I removed the left door
