    The bug that was introduced between F4m and F4 and persists in F5a, is also present in F5b. The bug is: at any bclk around 170 or higher with reboots you get a blank screen, computer runs and does nothing. Most, not just me, get the same issue. Have to shutdown computer and hit reset key to get into windows. I wrote GB, and they said OCing is not gauranteed, but would pass info along.

    Any chance of bios testers actually testing these with Oced settings?

    Or do I need to quit buying GB boards if I am interested in OCing?

    Do you think it is possible at all to add LLC into a P45 BIOS that does not have it already (I ask about my Board P45-DS4P)?

    Stasio and I been talking and he told me I should ask you. I think it would not be possible right due to each board needing specific LLC programming per the boards circuits and such right?

    I even wonder if these bios-programmers even know that they screwed up somewhere between f4m and f4 or/and read this forum?
    and If GB don't support overclocking they shouldn't allow the settings to be changed...so imho .... BS!!!
    Also imho I feel that they must get their acts together...this hurts their -future- business... at this moment I am happy with my UD5 but my next MoBo will probably be an Asus again.

    finally : is S3 sleep/awake repaired or STILL broken?

    The more users who send in reports the more they will be aware of issues >>>
    http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/ServiceCenter.aspx

    The dont support overclocking as a "Help me overclock/why is my board not working" type of don't support. Meaning if you cannot overclock and be stable that is your issue as the board will function 100% stable at stock settings that it was designed to run at. Too many hardware variables for them to support users who overclock with any official support capacity

    You will get the same NON Support from Asus with overclocking, and likely have the same issues with a Brand new Chipset

    I did write them with the specific issue. And many people that I know of that have tried bios F4, F5a have the same problem, and I included that in my email. At any overclock above 3.8 on F4, F5a or F5b, it will run fine after you first change it from bios. However when you reboot, you get a blank screen, no post, but computer just keeps running. Shut down and hit reset button, then up and running at same overclock 4.2 or whatever. Every time I reboot, have to do a hard shutdown, hit reset, then boots up fine at overclock settings. Or if enter bios again, and hit save, nothing happens, bios screen disappears, no post....again shutdown, reset, boot.

    It is a bug, nothing but a bug, has nothing to do with unstable overclock settings. If it exists on 9 people that I know of that have tried it, no doubt the bug would occur if at least a few tested the bios at 4ghz.

    If Gigabyte bioses do not support overclocking because they are not tested in ANY overclocked system, then they should fully state that NO ONE should buy this board if they have the intent to OC. It is misleading to have reviewers OC a board, call it an EXTREME board, and then state, we dont support OCing and we dont test bioses on OCed systems. It is such an obvious bug, I could probably fix it myself if I could see the source code of F4 side by side with F4m.

    If it were just my system, I would figure out what is different, but others are getting the EXACT same bug. And I can eliminate the bug by changing back to bios F4m, which I am now at seems permanently stuck with.

    +1.

    Just wanted to say I experience exactly the same thing rge is describing.
    F5a/F4: No reboot avove 180bclk
    F4m/F4J: I can reboot at 200+bclk

    So I'd definitely agree with the BIOS bug theory, since the Board is clearly capable...
