    Using Qflash 2.09...tried everything we can think of.
    Flashed all previous updates with 0 probs.
    Guess we need to wait for next update )<:

    Don't use qflash. Make a dos bootable USB drive or floppy and use flashspi.exe

    Thank you!!
    Got it finally to work.....Trying to get the memory above 1200 now.
    12 GB's installed.

Now I have running with XMP Profile1. I assume this is the problem? ur saying LSD? I will turn it off tonight and see how it does.
    btw
    these last couple Bios revisions sure seemed to have greatly minimized the double/triple false starts, but still when the house is cold, I get double/triple starts, if house is kinda warm (afternoon) I usually start first try.

    oh right now running:
    GA-EX58-UD3R - F5 bios
    (F6A was terrible, could not even post at any of my stable overclocks, my normal OC is 200 BCLK, and with F6A even 160BCLK was unstable)

    Please do not expect BIOS Settings from "X" BIOS to work in "Z" BIOS, many unsaid changes are made in each BIOS revision and you may need more or less of any number of given settings to get stability. Sure you can use your old settings as a good starting point, but really you need to expect to have to tweak things a bit to find stability between any BIOS version.

    Yes, sure there may be times when old settings work in a new BIOS and are stable, but without tweaking things you never know then if you could actually use less voltages or better timings, ect. So just get used to when you flash finding stability again, dont go back to old BIOS's because new ones do not work with old settings. Thats just silly

    are u saying that double/triple false starts when overclocked are from XMP profiles?

    ok if so then what aspect?

    1. The fact that XMP plays with Voltages? (if so I know that, and set all manually, so that would not apply to me?

    2. Or are u actually saying the XMP profile actually sets some timings incorrectly, that do no like booting when cold?

    if it's #1, I would say all someone needs to do is set XMP Profile1, and then go back and set all Voltages and Timings correctly/manually?
    all though I have always done that and still get false starts (I see what stock clocks and AUTO voltage sets, and I set that all manually except VTT, VCORE and QPI PLL)

    if it's #2, well hard to believe as I am at stock RAM SPEED (1600Mhz) at 4.2Ghz CPU Speed. I would hope they could set stock ram speed timings correctly.

    anyway if u could clarify please?
    if it is indeed votlages, I know what u mean, many a time I would set my voltages and Bclk, and then set XMP Profile1, and have to go back and reset all those settings again, as XMP changed them!

    Thanks
    Stock/Auto values for voltages and timings you see in the BIOS and or in Easytune are not always what is actually being applied.

    Many things need to be set to run Ram at 1600Mhz, QPI/Vtt would need adjusted as the XMP profile amount may not be enough or too much for your CPU or QPI and Uncore Speed. You must also set your Uncore Freq to 2x ram multi or 2x Ram Multi +1

    I am not sure where you noticed me commenting on XMP because I have said it a few times, if you did comment this on one of your posts that I had mentioned these things on I will get a reply to you there as well.

    I suggest setting All things manually, especially at 1600Mhz ram speed and even more so at 4.2Ghz CPU Speed regardless of ram speed as the board will way overvolt things if you do not. XMP I feel should only be used by those who may not know enough to setup things themselevs, or can not ask for help from a knowledgable source.

    Auto Settings with XMP may use incorrect QPI/Vtt voltages as these voltages are a "Per CPU" type of thing, improper Uncore multi's, and can actually be way off depending on the Blck set. You have to keep in mind all CPU's are different and CPU "A" may need 1.3V QPI/Vtt for any given setting and CPU "B" may need 1.45 for that same given set of settings.

    About double/triple starts. There is Several ways this happens, one is good and expected/norm. One is not and all things would be set back to defaults, the other is just BIOS related bugs Gigabyte has not yet worked out for all models of X58.

    1. (Expected/Norm)

    When you make any given changes in the MIT Section where the board needs to power down to apply the changes a double or triple boot is normal and your settings will be applied after the final restart. Those changes can be anything ranging from voltages, multi's and or timings.

    2. (Incorrect Settings Applied)

    If you apply incorrect ram settings, not enough voltages, or improper Multi's (To any of the 3 available Multi's that matter) the board will then attempt to load these settings and fail. Upon doing so a double or triple start will happen as it tries to apply them, when it fails upon the last try it will load defaults and a warning will be given in the MIT Section of the BIOS. All settings will remain and appear as you set them in the BIOS, but they will not be in use and optimized defaults will actually be what is loaded and in use.

    3. (Gigabyte BIOS Issues)

    Gigabyte is still working on BIOS's for all the X58 models as some have a double/triple start at anything above a certain Blck, some at anything under a certain CAS Setting... This is no matter how stable any of the given settings are. This double/triple reboot happens normally on cold bootups or after a full power down and restart and all settings of your overclock WILL be applied as expected. Thus this is the False double/triple bootup

    If you do need help with things, or would like to see my suggested settings please feel free to make a new thread and I will get you my suggestions of where to start

    Hi, I was out of this forum like 1 month or so some users said that
    they dont have OC tripple boot issues anymore with F7b so does
    this means that the OC issues are solved on that bios ? thanks in

    I'm using the bios F6h for X58 extreme, and I couldn't update my bios to any other versions (F7a, F7c), it kept saying the image is invalid.

    You got to use FlashSPI!!

    For sure!!

    Stasio you should add that note back on the MAIN post about Qflash issues until the are fully resolved
