    Default General Info

    Purchased a ga ep45-ud3r rev 1.2 with Bios f11
    When in the Bios you where able to go into an more advance Bios setting by hitting CTRL +F1
    I didn't notice any changes am I missing something?
    I looked in the MIT/Standard/Advanced/IP/PMS/
    Did they include the advance setting with out hitting the ctrl+f1 with the rev 1.2?

    I'm very happy with my new system even though I had a hard time getting it up and running. My biggest issue was with the Video card... 4870 Dark night from Asus. I purchased tp650 Antec PS and used only 1 pci 6 plug power cable into the video card. The card takes 2 6 pin and I did use 2 6 pin, but they were from the same cable. I solved this issue by running a separate 6 pin cable to the video card.

    I have never been able to see any "hidden" settings on my EP45-UD3P or P55-UD4P by pushing ctl+f1 but there may be some voltages or something.

    It says right here in my new manual for my mobo. "if you don not find the settings you want in the main menu or submenu, press ctl + f1 to access more advanced options" That's in my manual. Does not say what it "unlocks"

    Actually I just tried it and found that doing this added two features to "advanced BIOS features" one is "limit CPUID" feature. I think you can turn off cores with it. I don't know what the other one was. I counted 13 then with ctl + f1 there was 15.

    In the UD3 series, using [Ctrl] + [F1] also reveals more advanced IRQ settings and PCI latency control.

    There are no advanced over clocking features revealed using that key combo as everything is already visible and adjustable. Gigabyte have learned their lesson, than hiding OC features is a pretty stupid thing to do.
