    thx LSDme, I'll spread the word if I see someone with the same issue.

    I sold the board cheaply. It's fine if you don't OC past 4,5 Ghz, so it's just fine for most users. It's still a very nice board, and also the prettiest board I ever did see =)

    My new board is not as pretty but it's voltage is just rock solid. 1,50V is 1,50V, under ANY circumstances! But I even applied MORE LLC then just for keeping it @ the set voltage, it now overvolts ONLY under extremely heavy load (so, ONLY with Lynx, not even with Prime95). This allowed for a slightly lower VCore to be set. It's kind of a reverse vdroop. Gigabyte could really learn from this LLC implementation, it's really excellent.

    Anytime, always happy to help!

    4.5Ghz? Ahhhhhhhhhhhh! You should have asked for help, I could run mine at 5.3 all day, and it only stops there because that's the limit of the CPU's I have. Sorry it didn't work for you this time around though, be sure to come hit us up next time you are thinking about a Gigabyte board, and especially if you have problems be sure to let us know so we can try to help!

    It's funny how everyone complains so much about vdrop/vdroop, this is Intel's crazy idea anyway I hear ya though, but I just set what I need to get the voltage I want, always works fine for me

    Post back anytime, you know we're always willing to try and help!

    I did overclock it to 5.0 Ghz and even manage a LynX run, but the problem with the UD7-board I had was that the VCore was flying around all over the place. And not in the good way, so not higher when more load and less when less load, but the other way around - vdroop. So not good for the processor and not good for the stability of the overclock. That 5.0 Ghz run was pretty lucky and only worked because of very low ambient temperatures. It was not stable in long prime95-runs.

    I never checked my vdrop, I never noticed any problem with the 12V line not delivering what it should.

    It is in no way a problem of the processor, it's a problem of LLC not working as it should at high voltages. But like I said, up to 1,44V it does work (not as well as on my new board but good enough for solid stability). So for most people that is enough, they can still overclock quite a bit. It's not enough for me tho, and I thought the UD7 would be the kind of board that would serve me well, like other UD3-series boards did in the past.

    I now have the SAME processor running at 5015 after only a couple of hours worth of overclocking, and the voltage is behaving as it should. Also, no more cold boot-problems, those were pretty annoying too.

    GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 - F11j

    Just thought I'd pass on some feedback on this BIOS - have just upgraded from an old Core2Quad Q6600 to an i5 2500K on the above board.

    I have been having some difficulties getting my G.Skill RipjawsX 8GB 2133MHz, F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL to run at 2133Mhz - the board only wanted to run it at 1600, and would persistently revert back to the "safe" BIOS setting of 1600Mhz if I selected either Profile 1 or 2 of the XMP. I tried increasing the DRAM voltage to 1.6, which didn't help.

    This new BIOS, however, happily runs my RAM at 2133Mhz under XMP profile 2, which is great news. Hats off to whoever carried out that particular tweak! It's still not available on the Gigabyte website, reckon they should get it up there ASAP.

    The only problem I still have is that I can't run the RAM in dual channel configuration - the board goes into a persistent boot loop. Unfortunately my cooler (an Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro rev 2) obstructs access to slot 4 so I can't try it in dual channel using slots 2 & 4 - if anyone has any other suggestions to try then they would be much appreciated...

    Thanks

    Thanks for sharing the BIOS!

    Have you considered turning your cooler around so you can try using 2+4 memory slots, or is that not possible? If it's not ideal but still possible, how about doing it just for a few days for testing? This way you can verify if you can run 2133 by using slots 2+4, then if you can you can consider a different cooler that doesn't obstruct your memory slots.

    Default Ga-z68x-ud3p-b3

    My board is the GA-Z68X-UD3P-B3 and it has not the integrated GPU output.My question is, if it is possible to ebale in bios menu the integrated Graphics option? ( I want to use 2600k integrated GPU with proper software as internal video renderer)

    I could be wrong here but I belive you can only "Enable iGPU" if you have a external built in display port of some sort, I.E vga, HDMI, DVI port.

    My board has not external dispaly (VGA/HDMI/DVI )port and thats the reason thay i have not in bios the option to Enable iGPU.
    My question is if there is a way to MOD the bios so i can have this option active in bios menu.
    Without the Enable iGPU bios option, i cant install Lucidlogix VIRTU so i can use after the 2600k integrated GPU with proper software as internal video renderer.

    It might be possible, but only by the actual BIOS team, I don't think any of us regular mortal users would be able to do that kind of a mod.

    Sorry, I'm sure if it was possible for end users to do that someone would have already done the mod.
