    Hello, first time posting... I have the same issue with my UD4P and the double start boot issue! I am running Bios version F2 and I am not sure I will overclock until they get this fixed in a Bios update! Not sure if I need to overclock anyway!
    Lsdmeasap, have you liked your board so far? Also do you have a how to section for the OC you did on your system?

    Thanks, Munch

    I found the F6c BIOS did not do the double/triple boot, and I don't think the F4 and F5 do either but I cannot remember as I have tested so many Beta's and normal BIOS's this past two weeks.

    I like this board, it is very nice! I do NOT like the new Heatsinks though, over the NB and Mosfets compared to the old P45 style ones. I like the color, but not the thickness of the heatsink themselves. They are SO thick they hold heat and build up heat way to easy. The P45 type and P35 type has those Very thin "fins" or "Blades" that allow heat to be released into the airflow MUCH Better!

    Other then that, LOVE the board

    Nope, no guide for X58 overclocking yet. I can link you to a few write up's at other sites though if you need some info. Check these out for some tips and info >>>

    Lsdmeasap, Would you recommend I update bios to newest version? Are you saying the F6c bios will fix my double boot issue? Also will my Raid array be a problem? I am more then a little concerned about screwing my system up!!

    Thanks for the reply, Munch

    F6c fixed it for me but I did not use it much so dont take that comment as a absolute, and do keep in mind your settings also must be stable.

    They are working on this, and S3 issues so you can wait if you like. I have been testing F7x beta's this week without luck as well, so they continue to try and get it sorted out.

    No, as long as you are careful and pay attention when you flash you will be fine. I use RAID Myself and have flashed probably 20 times this week.

    You just HAVE TO be sure after you flash, you go in and load optimized defaults, save and apply and reboot BACK TO THE BIOS and set your RAID Settings again, then reboot BACK to the BIOS and then go into advanced BIOS page and into Hard Disk Boot Priority and move your array back to the top of the list.

    Do it in that order and you will be fine, but as you know backup's are always great to have as anything can go wrong.

    Please do read my guide if you are unsure about anything flash related >>

    If you are that concerned you can always do all of that with your disks unplugged and then connect them back once you have things setup correctly. But you would not be able to arrange boot order until they are plugged in, but you can be sure RAID is re-enabled and such. If you do that, BE SURE you mark which drives are plugged into which ports as they will HAVE TO go back in the exact same ones.

    I leave mine plugged in and just do as I said above, the triple boot to BIOS before windows to get all things set properly. DO NOT Leave your PC or look away while it is rebooting because if you miss it and windows starts to load before you enable RAID again your array will be corrupted

    Triple boot issues are fixed in the F6f and I think F6h BIOS as long as you have stable settings. Here they are, please do not use Qflash, there is issues right now with it >>

    So use DOS to flash your BIOS or @BIOS
