Here's a screen of my x58a-ud3r with a w3670 running a xmp profile in triple channel.

that should answer a few questions :D

Edit: I should note that the stock bios worked fine, unless i went into the overclock screen. it would freeze and i would have to restart :/ After updating to latest bios(fh with @BIOS) I've had zero issues.

I don't believe I set up any sort of dual bios - but the computer has been restarted a few times with no indication of reverting back, so that's good enough for me!!

all I can tell is it's using version FH, so I'm hoping it doesn't become some sort of issue. That being said, it's amazing that intel originally had 6 core processors only to go away from it.

Perhaps I can settle for the xeon w3680 then, as it's only $43

EDIT:

Got the w3680, and overclocked it.


Managed 4.4 ghz at 1.375v,
191 bclk, x23 mult, x19 uncore, x6 ram,
got a wonderful cinebench score of 2106 and 287 (single)
Hasn't crashed or stuttered really on me yet, so i'm keeping it this way ;D

Temps peak around 78 C (66 F ambient) on the corsair H80 with an EF4 vardar in pull

$45 well spent, i'd say. Only thing it can upgrade now is with 3x8gb ECC ram and a 2070 :D

Did you try out that ECC Ram? i couldnt get it to work with stock bios, havent tried again since updating to FH.

Hi everyone,

i was surprised to yet see an active and nice community around this board series. Pretty cool!

I finally assembled some more or less leftover parts to my X58 UD-5 (Rev 1) which had been serving me faithfully until i finally upgraded to a Skylake 6700k.

Now the Westmere X5670 i Ebay´ed a while ago looks alright. But what worries me is the power draw that HWInfo shows during Cinebench. 560 Watts seems a bit much... ?! Is that a somewhat legit figure or does HWInfo mess up there? I am a little worried.

Thanks in advance for any qualified feedback. :)

My system/settings:
Gigabyte X58A-UD5 Rev 1, Bios F7
Xeon X5670 (air cooled by EKL Alpenföhn Atlas)
Corsair AX750 PSU
6x2 GB Corsair XMS CL7 (CR 1)
Zotac GTX 1070 Mini
197x22 @ 1,368 VCore Bios set (apparently turns out as 1,328 V both in CPUZ and HWInfo)
LLC Lvl 1
VTT 1,315
ICH Values: Manually keyed in default values just to be safe
Rest of the Voltages set to AUTO (should i customize them? forgot most of the X58 OC stuff and i miss clunk.co.uk which had a very nice topic on OCing this board back in the day)


See Powers -> CPU MAX (my Coffe Lake CPU doesnt have this tab anymore somehow) in HWInfo ... :eek:

Ok, since there was no qualified Intel to be found on the estimated consumption of this platform during OC i ordered a device to measure myself, so here the results (whole System power consumption):

System Powered Off : 2, 7 Watts

Windows 7 Desktop (6 x 4,33 GHZ) : 148 Watts

Resident Evil II Remake Racoon City Zombie Infestation (GTX 1070 pretty much maxed out) : 240 Watts

Cinebench R15 Multicore (exactly 1000 points Kappa) : 275 Watts

Conclusion: All not that worrysome. Although those 12 year old VRMs are pulling a fine load...

System (sorry no proper export sheet):
Gigabyte X58a-UD5 (Rev1)
Xeon X5670 (@ 197 BCLK x 22, 1,328 VCore)
6x2 GB Corsair XMS 1600 (@ 15xx CL7 CR1)
Alpenföhn Atlas
Zotac GTX 1070 Mini
Samsung 860 EVO 1 TB
WD Velociraptor 300 GB
Corsair AX - 750 Watts PSU
Audiotrak Prodigy HD 2
Cooltek G 3 Case (allows for fan directly behind CPU VRMs)

Bios set voltages:
Loadline-Calibration : Level 1
CPU VCore : 1.36875 V (the actual value appears much lower)
QPI/VTT Voltage : 1,315 V
IOH Core : 1,1 V
ICH I/O : 1,5 V

Godspeed everyone! :)

I assume that wattage is for entire computer? As in monitoring power consumed by computer's PSU?

Hey, been trying to look around with no luck. But I have an X58A-UD7 Rev 1.0 and an X5680 on the latest bios (was bought this way so F9A), it boots and all but whenever I try to change any settings the system just kicks in the "OC fail" protection. Trying to flash to an older bios but the board says the file size is incompatible, tried in windows on windows 7 (64 bit) and the software says it is also incompatible even though I got the flashing tool from the windows 7 64bit section. Was wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of which bios would be best, and how to flash it.

Thanks.

If your memory frequency= BCLK*10(X56** not work over 10)&Uncore=20 try System Memory Multiplier(SPD)=18 or Uncore≠20 at other times.
I managed to find a way to force flash the bios, F7 works just fine with the X5680 now. Although it still complains if you change too much stuff at once, if you change stuff like one or two things at a time it'll allow it. Can see why it's not on the official support list now.

Did you try F8 bios? They changed the bios file size from F7 to F8 and higher, so trying to roll back past F8 will give an error on bios file size, so you have to manually flash it. Since these mobos are way past EOL, you won’t see any official support list updates.

Haven't visited here in ages. Had a house fire over a year ago, so the upgrade to my 2nd X58 was on hold It's the UDR3 2.0--or was..as I think I bricked it while installing the fan on a hyper 212 which was now mated to a new to me x5680. Dropped a long screw on the mb and forgot about it. It powers up, lights on, fans work but no signal to monitor, keyboard, mouse. Tried all the normal diagnostics, reseating everything, just 1 ramstick, no luck, even tried the old CPU. Anyone have any ideas? No si9ng of smoke, or damage to the MB. The circuit area near the CMOS batter is where the screw took up residence...Poop on me for forgetting about it!

Anyhow, there's a few on ebay.. mostly UDR3's, one is Rev 1.0 rather than 2.0 and currently bidding way low. If there's no hope for the one I bricked, should I bid on that one?

My old PC is a P6T, which I built in 2010, then added an x5670 a few years ago, and, of course, newer GPU's..and an SSD boot drive,of course. Handles 3 more HDD's, and a couple 8tb USB3 drives via an add-on USB 3 card. I'm a photographer so have gobs of big HDD's!

I also have a Rzen 1600x PC, which also survived the fire, which makes 3..till I bricked the 2nd X58 box.... While I was "homeless", I built a 2700x PC, which purrs like a baby, but the old X58's do the job....

Hope some of you gurus read this whining treatise, and can offer some advice!!!

I just wanted to drop a note here that on my GA-X58A-UD3R rev 1.0, I was able to install a Xeon 5680 after updating the bios to F8A. It would not work with bios F1.

Thank you! I'll try that! I just checked, as I thought I'd double checked whether I'd bricked the MB by reinstalling the i7 930 that was in it, but no, I'd put a x5670 in it that I'd bought for it... So, I'll give this a go.

Hoping it works, as then, I'll have a 930 to try to sell for $10 or more on ebay, and the 5670, which should be 20-25....

Hello
First time here . I have a Gigabyte Ga-x58a ud3r rev 1 which i would like to upgrade the bios to F6 . F4 and F5 work but only recognise 4 GB of memory , whereas F6 recognises all 4 modules totalling 8GB . The problem is I cannot get past the "starting windows" screen where is hangs . Cannot use safe mode or any other option . Any ideas on how to rectify this problem would be appreciated . F7 and F8 throw up a incorrect file size error .
