    Did you ever get this corrected and get flashed? Looks to me like you should download the file again as it may have been corrupted. You are just selecting the BIOS file correct (The file ending with .F6i)?

    Apart from Q-flash issue (I' haven't tried yet, but thx for the heads up Gerri), this one seems really good :)

    Stable with same settings as F4m @ 200x19 -200x20 -200x21

    p.s. Still hoping for the TDP on/off switch in BIOS though. Sucks always going back to "old" F3 (just changing RAM timings is a pain...).

    Edit: Same problem with F6i as F6f here:
    TDP On/Off switch I have asked about, and they said this >>>

    The engineers did originally have a TDP setting on X58 that users could adjust themselves minimum, medium and max TDP, but what is the use of setting a minimum??? So, they got rid of it
    Why do you need it enabled anyway? Just wondering, as you could just use EIST and C1E

    my cold start issues are overclocked (high volts):
    4.2Ghz, 200Bclk, 1.475v Vcore, 1.48v VTT
    (stock clocks/volts it always cold starts fine)

    btw
    P95 overnight stable at 4.2Ghz

    if I drop down 1 notch in VTT P95 gets a BSOD in under 30 min
    tried it a dozen different times
    same thing with Vcore 1 notch lower, and P95 gets BSOD in less than 1 hour
    every time.

    Actually with my chip VTT voltage is much more important than Vcore. 4.0 Ghz needs only 1.3v Vcore, but 1.4VTT (same deal, if I lower VTT 1 notch and get BSOD in under 30min, lower vcore crashes in about 1 hour)

    every chip is different, mines just needs more voltage than most. Same deal if set everything else to auto, or try and turn 1 or all other voltages up by .1v or even .5v. Played with every other voltage I have, only seem to need to set VCORE and VTT to get 4.2 stable. Running ram at 1600Mhz as well, and only need 1.5v DIMM (or AUTO which also sets 1.5dimm)

    yah I don't like having to set vtt that high, but anything less is just unstable
    oh well, if the i7 fries, maybe my next one won't need such high voltages....lol

    temps aren't bad though (for such high voltages) my Coolermaster V10 keeps chip under 80c, even after running P95 all night...

    actually it could be the X58 UD3R
    This guy needs 1.5v VTT to get anything around or over 4.2Ghz
    http://forums.vr-zone.com/overclocki...dget-oc-3.html
    (PM'd that guy, he is in same vote, needs around 1.5Vcore and 1.5VTT to get 4.2Ghz stable...same mobo and chip)

    (oh well I am testing the results of long term/high VTT voltage for the rest of u guys...lol)
    been running those volts OR HIGHER (1.5v Vcore and 1.5v VTT) 24/7 for over 1.5 months now....i7 920 seems to love it...or at least hasn't died yet...lol
    (always low vdimm though at 1.5v)

    yes
    I will always use Q-flash







    I have the bios file is corrupted even though I have downloaded many times


    Please send the file F6i in my e-mail ( brugola.x@alice.it )

    Thank's Gerri

    Thanks a lot for asking about that LSD :). I use EIST and C1E anyway ^^...

    I would have to say I need the TDP limit so I can run lower voltages (=less heat) whilst giving me exactly the same performance as "no TDP limit" on all my (currently max 4 threaded) apps. This (less heat) also allows me to keep HT on, in case I do need more than 4 threads (multitasking, new app, ...)

    -No TDP-> 20/21x200 (4.2ghz) needs 1.44v (1.49 BIOS)
    With TDP-> 20/21x200 (4.2Ghz) needs 1.36v (1.41 Bios)

    -No TDP-> 20/21x195 (4.1ghz) needs 1.36v (1.41 BIOS)
    With TDP-> 20/21x195 (4.1Ghz) needs 1.31v (1.36 Bios)


    With the TDP limit, I only need enough voltage for the 20x multi (or slighlty more), because 21x multi will disengage once 3/4 threads are loaded 100%...

    - @ 20x195 with different amount of threads loaded in Prime 95:
    1 to 3 threads = 21x195 in Cpu-z
    4 Threads = 20/20.5/21 x195 in Cpu-z (fluctuates between those 3 multis)
    5 to 8 Threads = 20x195 in Cpu-z

    -@ 20x200, 1 to 3 threads loaded give the 21x multi, but 4 threads and above give a constant x20.

    -@ 20x175, 1 to 8 threads loaded give x21 multi because still below TDP limit.


    If you can get your hands on a BIOS with the TDP limit, you might like the results for 24/7 use with a slightly higher OC... I wish they'd kept that "minimum, medium and max TDP" feature :(

    Ahh ya, you are right some do need more then others. Sounds like you have tested it all pretty well as you should have.

    I have been told (By Gigabyte, not Intel) that 1.4-1.5 QPI/Vtt is perfectly safe so you should have nothing to worry about running it if you have to. Some chips even do require 1.45+ to do 200-201+ Blck, so you must just have gotten one similar to that. GIGABYTE does not officially recommend those settings of course, and they were only passed along to me on a personal Basis Per a question I had asked.

    PM sent for F6i, how do you like it? I see you got it flashed, anythign fixed in it like S3 overclocked or Triple boot issues?

    Hmm, so would you like me to pass along a link to this post and see if they would possibly think about adding it back into the BIOS's or possibly make you a newer then F3 BIOS with the options available?

    No promises on what may come of it, but I can pass it along and see if you like.

    New AHCI BIOS is coming for all boards I believe, they just have to work out the bugs. They can't just add it in and call it a day, soemthings need adjusted/changed or some issues arrise in certain situations.

    .
    Wow, that would really be great man :D. I understand you can't guarantee anything, but the effort is really appreciated.

    The way I see it, this is a Win/Win situation for Gigabyte and it's customers.
    Giving the Gigabyte board extra functionality, and giving the User more control...
