    Does Gigabyte intend to release a UEFI BIOS for Z68AP-D3 rev 1.0? I see rev 2.0 had one released in June.

    Right the sniper 2 bios that u did 4 months ago U1A had no voltage control.
    u release this and still no voltage control what the hell is going on.
    this is a complete joke. this board is going back not fit for purpose.

    When, a new update bios? I use X58AUD5Rev2MOD_8_19_12.f3

    Is there any other difference between official BIOS and mod, except:
    IRST 11.5.0.1582
    Realtek 2.48
    Jmicron 1.07.28
    Marvell Bios Version 1.0.0.1033 / Firmware 2.2.0.1125
    ? May be new functions or something else?

    thank you !!!

    There should be no difference from the modified F3 bios vs the offical bios except for the roms that were updated.

    Default UEFI bios on GA-z68xp-ud3p (u1e) problems with DVID

    Apologies if this isn't the right place, but it looks to be where feedback is noticed by gigabyte for the recent UEFI bios updates on z68 boards.

    There appears to be an issue with DVID adjustment, otherwise known as offset voltage, for the cpu core voltage on the z68xp-ud3p (rev 1.0) using UEFI bios u1e. Using DVID appears to cause boot instability regardless of the size of the DVID adjustment in bios u1e. This is in comparison to the old award bios for the motherboard (version F6 in my case), where DVID adjustments effect stability as expected (only causing instability once voltage is too low).

    I spent my evening yesterday trying to narrow it down, here's what i found, i hope it proves useful.

    Firstly my setup with bios F6, that has been without freezes, BSODs or any errors for 9 months solid. The CPU is a 2500k at 42x100, cpu core voltage set to Normal and DVID set to -0.060v. All other voltages are left on auto. CPU features disabled are Turbo Mode, and C3/C6 states (C3/C6 with DVID reduce idle voltage far too low), whilst C1 and EIST are enabled for power savings. In bios F6 the DVID can actually be lowered to -0.080v and prove stable in p95 and IBT(AVX-enabled), but i prefer to bump DVID a couple of notches higher to -0.060v to be certain of reliability.

    Using the new uefi bios u1e and the exact same CPU settings i had some strange results, as follows:

    core voltage auto = POSTs and stable in OS.
    core voltage manually set to 1.32v = POSTs and stable in OS.
    core voltage normal, DVID 0.000v = POSTs and stable in OS.
    core voltage normal, DVID -0.020v = POSTs but bios menu freezes consistently, OS bootloader freezes also, required battery pull to enter bios.
    core voltage normal, DVID -0.030v = POSTs but bios menu freezes consistently, OS bootloader freezes also, required battery pull to enter bios.
    core voltage normal, DVID -0.040v = POSTs but bios menu freezes consistently, OS bootloader freezes also, required battery pull to enter bios.
    core voltage normal, DVID -0.050v = multiple bios POST failure then auto CMOS recovery, OS instability (see note 1).
    core voltage normal, DVID -0.060v = POSTs but bios menu freezes consistently, OS bootloader freezes also, required battery pull to enter bios.

    So it's perfectly stable with auto or sufficient manual voltage, or normal voltage and no DVID adjustment. The DVID adjustment results were reproducible almost every time, with only the -0.050v setting occasionally passing the bios POST and also the OS bootloader after a weird sequence as follows: The bios would fail to post twice, rebooting each time, and then on the third boot would pass post and show a half drawn bios menu, then reboot a fourth time and pass post to a working bios menu that asks if you want to reset to optimized defaults. If you decline to reset to default and instead keep current settings, all subsequent hot or cold boots would now work without any reboot cycles at the chosen DVID of -0.050v, also allowing bios entry with DEL and the OS bootloader to run successfully.

    All the other DVID steps would stop at a blinking cursor if you entered bios with DEL, or if left alone would POST then freeze on the OS bootloader. The only way to re-enter and reset the bios in those cases was to pull the CMOS battery.

    Bear in mind this same system with the F6 award bios is perfectly stable at BIOS POST, OS bootloader, and at OS loaded across the whole range of DVID adjustments from -0.010 to -0.080v. Something is very wrong with DVID on the u1e UEFI bios for the z68xp-ud3p. I hope someone from gigabyte can take a look at it.

    Currently with u1e the only overclocking options are auto vcore which is a bit excessive in terms of heat and power (nominal 1.36v for 4.2GHz), or manual vcore which disables EIST and pushes up idle power, not to mention lacks any LLC currently, meaning vcore has to be set quite high also.

    If anyone has any insight or tips, or someone from gigabyte notices this information, thank you.

    note 1:

    With the -0.050v DVID value that could reach the OS the system initially appeared stable, but would sometimes freeze (no BSOD or soft reboot, just a hard lock up), although very rarely. Typically it would happen less than once a day. Eventually i discovered a way to reproduce the OS freeze consistently using Chrome and HTML5 video playback. Using this i discovered windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8 would freeze with the -0.050v DVID adjustment, but wouldn't freeze using auto and manual vcore, or normal vcore and 0.000 DVID. Stranger still, Windows 7 without SP1 refused to freeze, even when using -0.050v DVID value. My guess is chrome uses AVX extensions for HTML5 video and that's why Win7 without SP1 was immune to it.

    note 2:

    To rule out memory issues I ran all the tests above with my normal 1600Mhz memory clock as well as at a lower 1333MHz, with no difference in results. I also ran Memtest overnight to make sure it wasn't a memory issue. All bios features were set to the same values in F6 and u1e.

    New to the TT forums... You guys have done a great job with this thread!

    On the contrary, Gigabyte has done a terrible job with the support of the Z68 series (especially UD5/UD7). It's been almost half a year since the Ivy Bridge launch, and they still can't fully support those processors at their high end models!!!
    They should have to respect a little bit more their customers... Just like other companies do.

    Sorry for the tension, but I'm really disappointed by their support. Really.

    It's a general issue of the 6x chipsets and ivy-oc, not limited to gigabyte. I'm not happy about it and not defending it in any way, but at least GBT do give us bios updates. I agree communication/information could have been better, and feel your dissapointment, esp. being prommissed next gen cpu support. I'm afraid it's going to be a fact we just have to live with.

    I have a G1 Assassin.2 motherboard and have some trouble with it at start up. Each time it starts the fans will spin up and down a few times before it actually boots through to the bios. This is the behaviour seen when overclovking sttings are pushed too far and the system tries to find a stable state to boot. My system is running at Optimized Defaults though....

    Any way I tried a few of the newer BIOSes.

    F11:
    No mouse (Logitech G9X or G700) in BIOS
    30seconds - 2 minutes of spin up/down before BIOS screen.
    Sli working (2 x GTX 670)

    F12D:
    Mouse in BIOS, yay!
    30seconds - 2 minutes of spin up/down before BIOS screen.
    SLi working

    F12D:
    Mouse in BIOS, yay!
    only 1 -2 spinups before bios screen, much better
    SLi NOT working - second card is not seen in OS although fans are spinning :(
    Intel 3930k
    ASUS P9X79 LE
    16GB (4x4GB) 2133mhz Patriot PXD38G2133C11K
    2 x Sapphire 7970 Dual-X OC
    Silverstone 1000Watt Strider
