    Default ma770-ud3 F6 bios will fry processor!

    I just downloaded and installed the F6 bios for the ma770-ud3 and installed it, rebooted and saw my processor was at a blistering 50C, and that voltage was at 1.450 volts! I thought this was a bug like the F5 bios, so I booted into windows and checked with CPUZ and yup, voltage was 1.450 volts, and then my CPU temperature warning beep came on I went back to the F5 bios, which while it reports my CPU at 1.450 volts in bios, in windows it reports it as 1.344 volts with CPUZ and CPU temps were back down to 27C This was with my Phenom II 955 processor Gigabyte contact me at Aticston@hotmail.com if you want more specifics

    Did you load defaults after updating the BIOS?

    Yes I did, I reset CMOS before starting up after new bios

    Voltage is indeed 1.450 volts, Easytune 6 and CPUZ both report it

    I thought it was a bug like with the F5 or F6A bios where it would show 1.450 volts in it, but it was actually 1.344 volts, but F6 version indeed made my CPU at 1.450 volts

    Worst was I couldn't undervolt it from 1.450 without causing my computer to hard lock and require a CMOS reset
