    this is a complete joke. this board is going back not fit for purpose.
    Has voltage control for me, works perfectly.

    Not true at all, Asus, ASRock and others fully supported at release of Ivy Bridge. Gigabyte trailed terribly.

    How high are you trying to overclock? I am stable at 4.2Ghz with the 2600K. Was running at 4.5Ghz stable.

    My voltages being locked so cant get this 3770k to what it fully should go. wanting to know how to unlock them so it should work as intended.

    What voltage are you using at the moment? Because in your previous post you said differently. How high you wanting to go to with the overclock?

    It is running 1.140 bios and shows that in bios no matter what i put in. its fully locked so limited to what it can go stable.
    and in my previous post i said i can put 1.3 volts in and still on reboot shows stock volts no change. even tried 1.35 still the same.
    cant even get 4ghz stable but put cpu in other motherboard of my friends goes up to 4.7ghz. like i said very limited for well over 5 months with no voltage thats crap.
    and u dont expect that from a 300.00 motherboard.

    The problem was that Intel didn't give some companies the CPU microcode to fully support Ivy Bridge. Sapphire and EVGA are perfect examples as their P67 and Z68 boards have zero support for IB (except for Sapphire which has slowly begun adding BIOS updates). Some MSI boards don't have any support either, the same with Asus.

    Even when they do support it that doesn't mean it's going to be "stable". Some Asus users are having issues with IB and P67/Z68 (BSOD, random crashing, missing BIOS options, etc.). I think at this point it's best to get a H77/B75/Z75/Z77 if you want true support for Ivy Bridge - even more so if you plan on overclocking.

    Didn't do anything special, yes it just works. Changes in CPU-Z when I change it in the bios.

    Backing up dazboot's findings - once again the Sniper 2 on a 2600k does not have working voltage controls or any load line calibration. Possibly this issue only now affects Sandybridge processors. Either way this is completely ridiculous. A while back a representative from Gigabyte promised us that the Sniper 2 would be one of the first in line for the whole UEFI update with an estimated date passed many months ago now for it's release. It now seems Gigabyte is focusing mainly on this years boards and totally forgetting the fact that many of us purchased premium boards such as the Sniper 2 under the stated pretence of full Ivy Bridge support and a UEFI bios. The message this puts out to me is that they are neither happy to honour their commitments nor to correctly support their products after only one generation of succession.
