    For the question i had in this post : http://forums.tweaktown.com/303028-post426.html

    The answer that Gigabyte Technical Support gave is that :

    The item "Memory Controller Volt." is the same with CPU-NB VID, but as they said this is "Processor Dependent" and that it cannot be set to values above the default, only minus.

    As per pages 30-31 of "AMD Family 10h Processor Bios & Kernel Developer Guide" the function that is used for controlling the CPU-NB VID is controlled in two ways depending on the regulator interface (parallel/serial) and are computed based on the max attainable value for 10h Processor Family, 1.55V.

    I am quite dissapointed by GB's Tech Support answer. Since the same processor on different board does have the ability of increasing CPU-NB Voltage up to 1.55 as per AMD's Developer Guide, i cannot see any reason to tell to someone that this ability is "Processor Dependent" and not "BIOS Code Dependent".

    I think that this could be easily modified within a BIOS Upgrade by an experienced BIOS programmer.

    I also asked for Windows 7 & Windows Vista Raid Drivers for my board, since the provided in the official board's download page do not include drivers for board's SB600, instead they have SB7xx folder inside. I was redirected to AMD/ATI for drivers....

    Any comment appreciated.

    Thank you

    Hi felix w
    Are you still refering to a GA-MA790X-DS4? Did you upgrade your cpu?
    Here is a RAID driver for Windows 7 64bit and SB600
    Here is the driver you require my friend. I suggest you do a clean install of win7 and select the drivers when prompted to browze. Obviously you need to have integrated perepset in the BIOS the SATA to "RAID"

    Be sure to follow the Vista instructions in your motherboard manual Section 5
    When prompted do not allow windows to search for the best RAID driver browse your media for it. Or point the Windows 7 to it.
    Your manual PDF may take time to download.

    CPU-NB VID can be adjusted through bios on Phenom II's and Athlon II's and AM3 motherboards. I'm not sure on the SB600 though. I have a older AMD Phenom x4 9600 BE & a GA-MA78GM-S2H (SB700). I do adjust the CPU-NB VID in Windows through a program and it works quite well actually. Here is a link to the program ----->

    Hi artdrivers,

    thank you for your fast reply.
    I currently use drivers 2.501.1540.48 from DFI 790FX-M2RS during installation of Win 7. I tried with 2.5.1540.47 provided by Gigabyte for Vista x64 but results were not good.

    The ones you provided are (if i am correct) from AMD Game forums. I am sure that whoever modded them for Win 7 had a good intention and maybe did a good job, but i guess that that's GByte's & Amd's responsibility. And sure, when the product was out Win 7 did not exist, but everyone else provides support for Win7 or at least gives some info...

    As for CPU-NB VID, the option "Memory Controller Volt." does not appear in Bios screens in manual, probably because it was a later added feature for Phenom II. SB600 sure provides this ability, because other boards with SB600 provide this feature (e.g.DFI Lanparty UT 790FX-M2R, Asus) and since they give the option for lowering the values, i wonder what would keep them from giving the option for overvolting a bit..
    Memory Controller Volt. = CPU-NB VID , as per Gigabyte's Technical Support.

    Thank you in advance.

    I can't lower or raise CPU-NB VID voltage with the BIOS on my motherboard due to the Phenom CPU I have. I use PhenomMsrTweaker v1.2 in Windows and it works quite well. It also allows me to raise and lower the cpu multipliers on each core. I just thought you might like to try it.

    Indeed Phenom I had minimal voltage tweaks compared to their successors. I have used K10Stat91 before which does almost the same thing with PhenomMrsTweaker. I guess that K10stat development stopped at some point ant PhenomMrsTweaker is more up-to-date.
    Thank you for your suggestion, artdivers, i really appreciate your help.

    I have tried with CPU-NB VID at "Auto" and it seems that i can reach 2.4GHz NB with the default voltage of 1.175V. Not bad...

    Yeah I like that program (PhenomMrsTweaker) for the voltage tweak alone.

    Hi,

    I am quite new to the overclocking community; however, I have read up on things for about a good week now. Unfortunately, I have been experiencing problems one after the other from a defective video card to now my problem with running my RAM at the rated stock speed. I have 12gb of Corsair Dominator GT which is suppose to run tripple channel at 2000mhz 7-8-7-20 timing.

    Hardware:
    PSU Antec 1200watt
    i7 975 cpu extreme
    12GB Dominator GT 2000mhz
    2 Seagate XT 2Tb
    2 5970 Asus
    Gigabyte x58A-UD7

    Problem: I have simply tried to get 6gb to run at the stock speed, but my system becomes unstable after I pass 1333 RAM Frequency. I can boot up at 2000 mhz but I can't pass memtest for the life of me. Moreover, I can not push my memory pass 12x multiplier or my system does not boot. The XMP profile causes my system to be unbootable as well since the multiplier gets set over 12x. My CPU can be pushed fine as long as I keep Vcore at 1.35 it runs up to 4.2 with no problem, but whenever I try to get my RAM pass 1333 either by increasing bclck or multiplier I run into all sorts of problems.

    Things I have tried: I have tried pushing my base clock down and pushing my multipliers up and also have tried pushing my base clock up and pushing my multipliers down. I have tweaked with voltages bringing my QPI/VTT up to 1.59 (as suggested by a Corsair tech support) but still no stability. I ran memtest on every single module testing 2000mhz and only one failed so that one module needs to be RMA. But, when I put in 3 modules that passed singly at 2000mhz I can't get pass 1333 without failing memtest in tr channel. Corsair tech support says my motherboard can't handle 2000mhz tri channel, but I see on almost every forum guys running there RAM on this motherboard 12gb at 2000mhz. Moreoever, I know that this motherboard can at least support 3 modules at 1600, but I can't even get 1474 or something to be stable. I need help very badly, I do not know if I need to get another motherboard or RMA my ram or <FACE-PALM>because I have been messing things up in the bios. Essentially I do not know what is going on, I have been working on this system to get it stable for 2 weeks now and am going simply crazy. Thank You in advance for your time and help, if you are able.

    Default bios virtualization option not available GA-P35

    I recently intalled new intel E3200 cpu with VT however when I go in
    to bios the option to enable it is missing. According to the manual it should be listed under Advanced BIOS features. Do I need to flash bios?

    MB is GA-P35-DS3L V2.0 AWARD bios 11/05/07 6A790G0TC-00

    Thank you...

    MB CPU Support list lists F9 as BIOS supporting your CPU so you probably should.
    Also F1 BIOS, first release for the MB is dated 2007/06/1, is that what you have?
    Do not use @BIOS, flash with Q-Flash
