    Because Gigabyte don't want it / I don't know

    I updated to f5e on a brand new ud5 board and things seem fine so far... *knocking on wood* I am burning the board in at 160x21 with

    vcore @ 1.23
    vdimm @ 1.54
    timings manual @ 9-9-9-24 1t
    qpi @ 36x
    mem @ 10x (1600)

    so far so good... I had a previous vista64 install from my other x58 board which I booted off this one and after one reboot all was good. this is only a mild overclock, so after 100 hours or so of burn in I will try 180+ on the base clock..

    I have the GA-EX58-UD5. It came with the F3 BIOS, which allows me to OC my i7 920 to 3.6Ghz stable with rather low temperatures. Not bad at all.

    Out of curiosity, I've tried several of the newer BIOSes posted here. While I certainly like the fixes and tweaks, I have noticed a few glaring issues. When OCing with any BIOS newer than F3, if I leave the vcore voltage on AUTO, it increases the voltage way more than it needs to be. Instead of being at 1.28125v, it's 1.3375v. BIOS F3 with CPU Vcore set to AUTO with the same settings set it to 1.28125v. It also set my QPI/Vtt Voltage exceptionally high with the newer BIOSes. These issues occurred even on the latest F5e BIOS.

    Also, I like having the power saving features set for my CPU. If I'm just chatting online and checking email, with BIOS F3, my CPU's voltage drops to 1.056v. That also helps drop the temperatures, too. With newer BIOSes, the voltage NEVER drops when the power saving features are on. It stays on whatever it was set to in the BIOS. This causes the temperature of the CPU to be 3 to 4 degrees warmer at idle and at least that much more at load.

    Next, with F3, Turbo Boost works correctly. When my CPU isn't doing anything intensive, the multiplier increases to 21 like it is supposed to do. When it's under load, it drops to 20 like it is supposed to do. With any newer BIOS, the multiplier stays at 21 all the time and never drops under load. While some may see that as a benefit (and in certain cases it can be), it can lead to instability as the multiplier won't drop to 20 under load.

    Another odd quirk I noticed with newer BIOSes occurred with EasyTune6. Under the Tuner tab, only Easy and Advanced showed up. Quick Boost was missing completely. With F3, Quick Boost is present.

    I'm not sure if I'm the only one experiencing/noticing these issues. I suspect that I'm not the only one, which means that Gigabyte ought to fix these issues. They aren't what I'd consider small issues by any means. These are issues that can affect stability.

    For now, I am sticking with BIOS F3 (which came with my motherboard) since none of those issues occur on it.

    I'd be happy to answer any questions if you require more information. Thanks for reading this!

    I actually just went back to F3 on the Extreme for the same reason (turbo mode).

    After F3 Bios's they removed the Overspeed protection, which basically completely unlocks the turbo multi.
    I read somewhere that some of the early BIOS's gave the option to turn this on or off. It would be great if we were given the choice. F4m with that switch is what I want

    P.s. Also just noticed that enabling Hpet in Bios F3 is what was preventing my system from resuming from S3 sleep :). That was my biggest problem with F3, so I'm glad it's "sorted".

    Unhappy Re: Gigabyte latest bios

    GA-EX58-DS4 F5D with i7 920
    -it sometimes detects the CPU voltage as being 1.26, sometimes as 1.2(the real one)
    (this was happening in F4 final too)
    -if I change the number of threads in the BIOS, it never reboots after saving the settings, I have to reboot it manually
    this happens for other settings as well
    -the old 1333Mhz memory doesn't get detected as 1333, 1066 instead
    -there's something wrong with the MSR (on pre F5 BIOSes, too), it's not like the one from an DX58SO and reading the multiplier makes the machine reboot (the proprietary Linux distro we're using for an appliance has a kernel which reboots instantly on this machine and it has been traced to the MSR)

    I'd really love to see this machine become as stable as the one with DX58SO from Intel.
