    That is true for some boards. In my experience it's usually older or lower end models (P43, P33 etc) that have hidden features.

    Most current boards will still respond to [Ctrl] + [F1] by blinking the screen, but there's no extra settings revealed. I guess Gigabyte have realised it's pretty pointless hiding features and adjustments. Makes sense, as if it were designed to stop the less experienced breaking components then they wouldn't let us set 2V+ Vcores.

    Indeed, the only thing I've found with CTRL+F1 on my UD3P is under "PNP/PCI Configurations" I can change the PCI Latency Timer from the default of 32.

    Well I'm an idiot, I was still using f9b and was getting the issues with the cpu case, system and nb temps dropping out after sleep until the pc was rebooted. I guess all these issues including the low cpu temp was fixed with f9c. Sorry, I'm a tard for thinking I was running f9c. Yay gigabyte and bios geeks! Thanks everyone.

    Hey Dank, I want to ask you did you use Q-Flash in all your bios's from going to f9a f9b and f9c?

    Yeah I use qflash. Qflash with the bios on a usb stick has worked great everytime. I will shuttdown, clr cmos, boot, load optimized, reboot, flash, reboot, load optimized, then set my settings. Sometimes I'm lazy and don't clear the cmos cause it's really overkill. Flashing makes me nervous though but that's probably typical of anyone that has bricked something flashing firmware before.

    Well, I updated to bios f8f. Didn't really help for my booting problem, but I investigated the problem further. Now I had to do the power off / power on cycle from power supply about 10 times until my PC succesfully booted, but this time with default clocks (2.66ghz). I also got a message that said something like "Boot failures happened because of overclocking or voltage settings" during the post sequence after the successful boot. This didn't happen before.

    That is strange, because I can run prime95 without problems for 10 hours (highest core temps according to realtemp and coretemp is about 75 c with my Noctua cooler) with my moderate overclock (3.4ghz) when my pc successfully boots.

    So why does my mainboard refuse to post and says it's because of oc? Is it a problem with the board, bios, or is there something really power consuming going on when my pc boots? Like I said, Prime95 with 100% load on every core goes on without problems for 10 hours. All voltages should be within safe limits (vcore 1.200, dram 1.64, qpi 1.335, ioh core 1.12). I bought the UD5 board and not the cheaper ones because I wanted to be able to safely overclock a little, so I can safely say this sucks.

    New GA-EX58-EXTREME F8g BIOS works for me. (Although I haven't used any of the ones between F8b and F8g.)

    -It's fixed the reboot loop problems I used to have when trying to disable Hyperthreading.

    A few issues though, I still can't seem to get it to boot up to Windows at 20x multiplier with a Bclk of 200 (4GHz). I used to be able to get it to boot at 4GHz (not stable) but can't even get it to do so now...

    I also have 12GB (6x2GB) of 1600MHz Corsair Dominators; they're 2 6GB kits. It keeps locking up at the Windows 7 loading window unless I set it to 1200MHz. Is this an issue that can be resolved through other settings or maybe a future BIOS revision? Or is it a limitation of Intel's memory controller or just the RAM itself?

    Thanks for any help. I can provide more detailed settings and specs if necessary.

    Yeah, unfortunately Gigabyte hasn't been too helpful in the past with more simple questions, doubt they'd be much help with overclocking.
