    It seems Gigabyte mb:s are not really suitable for overclocking. I downgraded my EX58-UD5 to official bios v F7 and I can now boot ok with default clocks, but the mb refuses to boot with overclocked settings unless I do power off / on cycle for 5-10 times.

    After I finally get successful boot everything works fine, but the very annoying power cycling mess definetily was not what I thought I'd get for my 250 euros when I bought the mb. Next time I'll spend my money to more reliable brands.

    can anyone say total inexperienced noob?

    my EX58-UD3R (which is inferior to a UD5) overclocks to 4.5Ghz with ease, just not a voltages that I am comfortable with for 24/7
    I run at 4.2Ghz on an i7 920 (C0) that is stable and happy now at 1.475volts and that is fine (for now)...every bios version all pretty much the same

    your statement:
    "It seems Gigabyte mb:s are not really suitable for overclocking" shows your inexperience at overclocking, even if you think ur experienced, ur obviously not.

    btw this is not a overclocking troubles thread, its a bios thread (I know I should not have posted either, but couldn't help myself...sorry Stasio won't happen again)
    now for something helpful for limons:
    go to
    Core i7/X58 Overclocking Thread - XtremeSystems Forums
    and
    Overclocking with Gigabyte x58 Mobos - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net
    and
    Gigabyte X-58 Overclocking Guide - Overclockers Forums
    and
    Gigabyte EX58-UD5 Motherboard Review & Overclocking - Page 1 - Introduction
    and ask for help here, lots of overclockers can help
    you've obviously got some reading to do

    if u do not research and learn about overclocking first any brand will give you troubles with overclocking

    I have my bios all setup manually for stock settings.
    When I want to overclock it (my 920) I drop the dram multi from 10 to 6 and change the bclk to 160-166 and I have it power off once (which is normal) then it loads into windows, everything stable.
    Thing is, you should be locking your pcie bus to 100, you should be setting all your voltages to normal (not auto) if you want to do a basic overclock. (and adjust the dram to stay at its rated speed. otherwise you will run into instability problems if you think that you can oc in the bios while leaving eveything on auto. My board is the EX58-UD5 too btw.
    Theyre perfectly fine for overclocking, if you know what to configure.

    and nicely said shane.

    sorry yes, off topic. I wont post ot again either.

    Thank you for the tips, but I wouldn't consider myself a total noob. I guess my mb is defective then, because as I wrote in my earlier post, all my voltages are in the safe range, my dram multiplier is set so that the memory is at 1448mhz (g.skill 1600mhz ddr3), so that can't be the problem. I have nothing on auto, I have manually adjusted all voltages so they are in the safe range. And I used to be able to run prime95 blend for 10 hours straight overclocked.

    For some reason, my pc just doesn't boot properly (requires about 10 power cycles from the power supply) anymore if I have even the slightest overclock applied (with bios f8f it didn't boot properly even with default clocks, but I flashed F7 and now it seems to boot ok with default clocks). None of the links you provided help me with that problem. This leads me to conclusion that the board I paid 250+ euros for is not as high quality as Gigabyte claims.

    And the reason I posted this into bios thread is because I assumed the bios version I used had something to do with these problems, maybe my mb incorrectly thinks something is wrong and doesn't boot as a safety measure or something.

    Nah, doesnt sound bios related to me.
    Im on F6 and have no issues like you describe.
    You'd be better to start a thread about your problems then to post here about them.

    what are you talking about? I can boot my UD5 on air to 4400 mhz, just don't like the temps so i am going with water.

    Gigabyte boards are just outstanding, and the fact that they are less expensive than ASUS makes them just that much better.

    You are doing something wrong, period, or your chip is terrible. If you post some specs anyone would be happy to get you going to some nice speeds.

    I have the UD5 and I am now running the F8f BIOS (upgraded from the F7). At my previous BIOS version I was running a stable OC: BCLK 200, CPU MULTI x20, SPD x8, Uncore x17, RAM timings at 8-8-824-1 (OCZ 6GB Platinum 1600), with 100 passes of LinX w/ ALL memory (max temp 73*C), but after upgrading I can no longer pass more than 10 or 12 passes of LinX without getting a x50, x124, or stop on errors from LinX.

    I've also tried uping the voltage on the QPI/VTT, QPI PLL, CPU PLL and/or RAM a tad, but I do not know if that will solve the issue.

    I was running at 4.2GZ, b/c I had turbo on constantly. I am running tests to see if Turbo off will help any. I also would like to run my speed at 1600mhz with the stated 7-7-7-24-1 timings, but I don't know if it is going to be possible or not. If I run MemTest for 2 hours with the settings and it passes does that qualify it as memory stable?

    I seem to have the biggest issue with getting memory stable, I wish there was some type of general guideline for setting it and/or OC'ing it.

    When I was on the F7 BIOS I found out my highest BCLK was 211, but I have no clue now how to achieve that, because I keep hearing a x20 multi for the CPU is not stable, but yet it seems that is the only one I can get stable.

    What is considered the best version BIOS for OC'ing? Is it a UD5 or Extreme BIOS?

    GA-EP45T-UD3P - F8b
    GA-EP45-UD3R - F10f
    GA-EP45-UD3P - F10e


    Info: AHCI ROM 1.20E
    Info: ALT + F12 - flash backup BIOS
    Info: "Backup BIOS image to HDD" now standard [Disabled]
    Info: Q-Flash update to ver.2.13

    This is done with the key combination "Alt + F12" after the BIOS beep made ...
