    I'd call NewEgg and see if they can tell you what revision they're shipping out.

    Hey congrats on the GA-EP45-UD3P v1.6
    I've got the same board.

    Hope you don't plan on running the Windows Experience Index on it (it won't be able to complete the test) or putting it to sleep (it won't wake back up). Sorry for the sarcasm but it's really ticking me off that there is such a long delay (infinite? who knows?) for Gigabyte to address these fundamental flaws with such a popular motherboard.

    If you have to use sarcasm and then immediately appologise, why bother with the sarcasm in the first place?

    Do you think posting that will get your issues fixed?

    Neither of these issues is major. If someone wants to buy a great over clocking board and doesn't care about S3 or WEI then there's no problem.

    If someone bases their purchasing decision on having to be able to see a set of useless numbers that mean nine tenths of twelve fifths of sod all, then don't get the rev.1.6 until the same BIOS fix has been applied as it has to the P55, or use the standard MS Drivers in IDE mode, not Marix Storage Manager and not AHCI mode.

    S3 is a problem with almost all motherboard manufacturers. Any statements that "gigabyte have the most complaints" etc is crap. Don't base conclusions on how many S3 issues appearing on the first page of a Google search are on Gigabyte boards.

    Any chance you an stop posting your whining in other peoples threads? You have your own thread here if you want to continue harping on about it. People have better things to do than listen to a stuck record, like actually using their PC and not crying about no WEI and S3.

    There's nothing wrong with getting a rev 1.6 board.

    I'm not whining, I think the issue related to the OP's question.

    I guess S3 isn't important unless you care about throwing away $30-50 per month in extra electric bills for leaving your computer on 24/7.

    I guess WEI isn't important unless you want to compare you super-fast-whiz-bang-mega-overclocked computer with that lame HP or Gateway that your buddy just bought from the big box store that scores a 7.5 -- it's ok, just tell your friend -- ``hey I know your box gets a 7.5 but trust me, if I could run that test, I bet you I'd win``

    Show me a bog standard HP or Gateway PC that'll score 7.5 and I'll show you a HP or Gateway with a SSD installed as standard. Wait... there's no way on earth they'd bundle a SSD with one of their mainstream systems.... seeing as mechanical drives are limited to about 5.9, you're example's invalid. Over all WEI score is what ever component tests the lowest.

    Nobody in their right mind would seriously use WEI to compare systems, it's so vague and non detailed, let alone someone capable of building a "super-fast whiz bang OC PC".

    The alternatives to leaving the PC on are called Hibernate and the sometimes forgotten shutdown facility.

    Your post was an opportunity for you to whine, which you grabbed readily.

    Being helpful and on topic would have been to say "S3 and WEI are bugged for SOME on this board, think before you buy if these are important to you."
