    To begin with, this is my first Gigabyte motherboard, so there is a lot of information to read and search for, so I take it easy.
    (Rome was not built in a day, as they say)

    When I buy something, I think it should work as expected.
    I prefer a BCLK/100.00 because of the simplicity to make a couple 24/7-OC presets
    without using Gigabyte's pre-presets.
    It becomes, as I see it, a little easier to keep track of voltages, temps, clocks and fans.

    With VID Voltage, I mean CPU vcore inside the bios .
    Sorry if I was unclear.
    I have read The Gigabyte Z87/Haswell Overclocking(OC) Guide
    so I used the term "VID" because of a picture there. Attachment 6801

    I had plans to use Offset-voltage with a 45/41-OC in one of my presets. Unfortunately, I think BCLK/99.78 complicates things,
    and with BCLK/100.01 my PC becomes unstable at OC.

    I have tried to return to F2 with QFLASH, but it won´t let me overwrite F3 with an older bios.
    I have however succeeded with a reflash of F3, and my VID/VCore now displays correctly 1.094V. When I enable XMP it raises to 1.181V, and when I disable XMP it goes back to normal 1.094V.
    (I guess the bios was corrupt before, because it showed 1.181V both with and without XMP)


    Does anyone know if there is any “total-newb-step-by-step–guide” for using fpt_DOS - Z87?
    I would like to test F2 again, to see if I can get the BCLK back to manual/100.00.

    Thanks for reading, and any tip/help/clue are most welcome.

    Best regards, Uleman
    I think that the best way to OC is for you to not use Vcore Offset but instead to just increase the Vcore (VID) to 1.2v (For starting, this can be decreased later) Just set the BCLK to whatever makes it say 100MHz in Windows, increase the Multi to 45 and stress test for a while using OCCT or Intel Burn test/Similar Software :) Don't mess with any other voltages or settings yet including XMP (Just leave memory running at 1333MHz until your CPU OC is deemed stable)

    Multiplier 45
    Uncore Freq. Auto
    VCore 1.25v
    'Advanvced Voltage Settings'
    LLC Extreme
    VRIN CP Extreme
    PWM eXm Perf
    BClock Auto /100.00MHz

    As for Vcore changing when Enabling/Disabling XMP profiles, I don't think that it should? As XMP is for RAM timings :S Just try not enabling XMP set Memory timings manually and set RAM voltages to 1.5 or 1.65v (Whichever applies to your memory kit)

    Quite contrary, it keeps system stable. As most OC guides say CPU clock is the KING of OC...so rise CPU clock with CPU multiplier as much as your temperature allows you and enjoy. Anything else is more less insignificant ;)
    check RAM for example,single...double...channel...speed...latenc y...all in +-5% why bother...speed up CPU and be cool

    My sweetspots with static Volts and XMP active were: (F2 bios)

    @ 44/41 (ran these settings for about a week, then I wanted to see if I could up it a notch)

    Vcore:1.235v
    LLC:Turbo
    Vrin:1.85v(with IGPU) 1.8v(without IGPU)
    VRing:1.15v
    C-states, EIST and CPU Thermal monitor enabled.
    rest on default/auto.

    @ 45/41

    Vcore:1.241v
    LLC:Turbo
    Vrin:1.92v(with IGPU) 1.86v(without IGPU)
    Vring:1.165v
    EIST and CPU Thermal monitor enabled.
    C-states and the rest on default/auto.

    AIDA64 gave me coretemps up to 86 degrees/c @ 45/41.
    When I played games, CPU stayed for about 65-67 degrees/c. (coretemps in hwmonitor)

    VID did not change at all when I activated XMP in F2 bios.


    [edit] After a succsessfull reflash from F3---->F2 (Thank you Stasio)

    Manual-->100.00 ...reboot

    activated XMP/MEM-multi... reboot

    BCLK=100.00

    (hmm, Corsair @ 1600MHz with Mem-Multi 16/XMP, raises BCLK to correct 100.00+VCore)

    Is there any beta bios for GA-970A-UD3P?

    That board has only seen a single official BIOS version ever since the board release and no updates for like 9 months.

    Trying to figure out how to solve IOMMU errors in Linux.

    ...and I can't even buy the board yet, lol. But at least the BIOS are moving along.

    Why would UD5H & UD5H-BK have different BIOS???

    ^It's different BIOS ID....ROM's are same, I don't know about functions....(BK is capable for server level with less
    overclocking potential then normal UD5H).

    Edit:
    UD5H.........Support for DDR3 3200 MHz
    UD5H-BK....Support for DDR3 3000 MHz

    Hmm. Don't you think that's strange? I thought the boards were identical except for color and burn in time.....if anyone knows I would appreciate what the difference is before I buy one.

    Hello boondocks,

    Interesting info : Gigabyte Next Generation Intel Motherboards - Legit ReviewsGigabyte Shows Off New Intel 9 Series Motherboards

    So, it appears these are slightly identical, exept endurance test. For the different bios versions maybe the gigabyte team focus more on the UD5H than the UD5H-BK or the BK edition get a more advanced bios due the frequency memory support.

    My Two cents

    Ghostearth.
