    I downloaded F9p from a link found on the current tread.
    If I remember well: Computertechnik JZelectronic

    For flashing Bios I used as always Q-flash.

    Is DES working for you and at what Bios?

    I've seen it on EP45-DS3P and on most, if not all P45 DFI boards. I doubt that the UD voltage regulator IC is inferior to DS one. I also mean some extreme 4+, sth like 4.5-4.6ghz frequencies Also Quads benefit lot from it (reduced vCore).

    Different boards = different voltage control chips. Plus the more voltages that can be hard wired, the cheaper the board will be over all because rather than be controlled by an IC that voltage section can be replaced with simpler resistors and capacitors.

    Notice that the voltage measuring point guide on Extreme systems neglects to mention a easuring point for CPU Ref2, it just says that it's set at default and remains stable.

    Gigabyte, like a lot of other manufacturers need a way to differentiate premium products from mainstream ones. Although the UD3 boards are excellent OCers, probably way better than Gigabyte intended, they are classed as mainstream. To add premium board features would in their view, undermine their Xtreme product, leaving then the only major difference to be twin 16x PCIe.

    Also for every xtreme OC on Xtreme Systems that uses an altered CPU Ref2 there are acouple that leave it stock. I would go as far as to say that in most cases, rather strangely, the UD3P is actually a better clocker than the P45 Extreme and most of the Gigabyte PX48's too, even without ths option.

    I have some serious problems with the GA-EX58-Extreme - F9r bios. I have an ibtel ssd m25-m 160gb in slot 0 , my raid-10 setup is from 2-6, in the gigabyte sata slots sits my backup HDD + DVD-RW. But my raid gives errors after upgrading to F9r bios: my hdd says SMARRT command failed (statsus = degraded). I have made even a new raid array, tested it, but still same errror. Is there a solution for my problem?

    Updated bios folowing instructions from this site :), and HDD's are 1 month old (4x 150gb velociraptors)

    Did the BIOS update come with an upgraded AHCI ROM? It may be a compatibility problem caused by the latest AHCI version. I believe the previous AHCI was 1.07 and the current one used in most newer Gigabyte BIOS is AHCI 1.20E.

    The reason your array is flagged as degraded is due to this suspected SMART error. If any drive reports SMART errors then the RAID BIOS will warn you by declaring the array degraded.

    If the AHCI ROM has not changed, or even if it has it is still worth checking the SMART status of your drives. I use CrystalDiskmark. It's detailed enough to offer enough info to analyse and also simplifies the SMART readouts for a more user friendly "Good" , "Alert", "Warning" or "Failure". If all SMART entries are colour coded blue then the drive is fine. Age of the drive doesn't mean much as unfortunately a drive can fail at any time. I've had several DoA Samsung F1, and a WD 2000JS that failed after three weeks with a motor problem (indicated by the abnormal SMART values for "Spin Up Time" and "Spin Retry Count".

    Velociraptors are pretty durable drives and use good quality components. However a lot of failures of these drives and the regular Raptors has been down to temperature. Even though they are 2.%" drives with basically a massive heatsink surrounding them to bring the size up to 3.5", they still require active cooling. At least 1 120mm fan per 3-4 drives blowing cold air from the front of the case over their entire length would be wise.

    If SMART values check out OK, I recommend you flash back to your previous BIOS version and check if the error occurs, then see if the error is repeatable (if the error is not present on the older BIOS) by re-flashing to F9r.

    Beta Bios F3k for the GA-X58A-UD7 seems to have sped up certain processes for my setup but the drive read time for IDE & AHCi still seems to be an issue first opening a drive, takes forever reading root content. I do have 11 drives so maybe thats it. I have no idea.

    The last bios I used F9P was also ANCHI bios v1.20E, will test my disk with that program, and report back :)

    An Update on the bios mentioned in my quote above. I didn't notice it at first but the Bios is only recognizing 4 gig of ram out of 6gb. In windows 7 it still registers 6gb but states only 4gb is attainable.

    I went back to release bios F2

    who is using DVID? noticed sometimes DVID is not applied correctly? I have vcore set on normal + DVID +0.0500, everything is ok, but sometimes when rebooting and checking with CPU-Z I see the DVID is not applied and makes my OC unstable.
