    Question 3770k with z68 limited overclock

    I have a z68x-ud4-b3 motherboard and I'm now running U1C with a 3770k CPU. As a lot of you know there is no vcore control when using ivy and z68. Is there a newer bios out that lets me control vcore? I can get 4.2Ghz out of the CPU but I want more, is voltage control coming?
    I am after any info on the current state of this issue, are Gigabyte working on it?
    Is there a Gigabyte rep that I can speak to about this issue?

    I had a 2600k that I needed to be replace and to now find I have this issue is a bit of a kick in the balls. I would have been better to get a new 2600k.
    While the 3770k performs @ 4.3 like a 2600k @4.8 I am after a higher clock to get the most out of this new cpu.
    Any help please?

    The vcore can't be changed from Auto. In fact the whole list of voltages cant be changed from Auto...

    I believe there are other people with this issue. I need to know if Gigabyte are working on this tho. The whole point of getting the 3770k was that I wouldn't need a new mobo. Other wise I would have gone with 2011..

    have you emailed gigabyte directly? usually takes 2-3 days for a reply

    only other way would be to buy a cheap z77 ud3h board and sell your old?

    Gigabyte have been emailed. Buying a z77 really isn't an option, I was happy to split the cost of selling a 2600k and buying a 3770k for what should be a 10% cpu improvement. But when you start buying motherboards that 10% gain isn't worth it. As it stands i'm out of pocket and have no gains due to poor support of Ivy Brige cpus on Gigabytes z68 boards.

    See what Gigabyte has to say.
    In the mean time, check with local consumer protection agencies and find out what rights you have.
    Collect information from the Gigabyte website and print hard copies of marketing information and technical specifications for your hardware.
    Don't open a formal consumer protection claim just yet.....wait to see what Gigabyte's response is.

    Keep in mind that RMA discussion problems are prohibited in the forum.
    You are free to post questions in your thread, but keep things polite.
    This is primarily a user to user forum and we are here to help you in any way we can.
    I am not employed by Gigabyte or Tweaktown and I will do what I can to help you.

    **edit**
    It's up to you to negotiate a reasonable solution directly with Gigabyte.
    PM me if you have any questions that you think might be better off in private.
