    The UD3 series will lock the PCIe frequency to 100MHz when it's set to auto. Setting 100MHz isn't strictly needed, so you haven't damaged anything that way.

    Also note that regardless of a card having a PCIe power connector or not, it will still draw its first 75W of power from the physical slot itself.

    Any guess as to the cause is currently just that, a guess.

    Put it back together and cleared DMI with new flash . Switched to Peg primary and shut down before DMI screen. No luck ;(

    Looks like ill be ordering a new motherboard over the next two days. What's the last resort trick? OC the **** out of the PCI-express or something? lol. Now sould I get the same board, try to send it to gigabyte (bought 14 months ago) or buy a diff board?

    Thanks all for your interest and help & Merry Christmas!

    Motherboards assembled with barebones systems carry a 3 years Warranty
    RMA

    You have plenty of time to get your board fixed.

    I want to cry. I just bought a UD3P and set it up after paying for overnight shipping.

    Guess what. SAME EXACT PROBLEM.

    I've changed the PSU, I've changed the MOBO, I've changed the graphics card.

    WTF!

    Please someone have some insight.... (Oh and I tried DMI thing with new board)

    ---

    EDIT : LMAO i was so upset with all the failures i was having that I forgot to plug the monitor in after deleting the DMI (mind you I still had to clear DMI in order to boot from PCI - express so i was already feeling like it was another lost cause).

    SOOO my pci-express card has a picture! YAYYYY. Too bad my dvd rom died somewhere in the last week.

    Would it be bad to leave same install of Vista as I installed on UD3r?

    The differences are small enough not to bother with a reinstall. Be happy with your new board. :)

    There's still the CPU, have you tried or can you try another?
    Maybe pushing it to 3.8GHz with auto settings, as I understand you have done from 1st post, was not the right thing to do.
    Was 1.3v Vcore CPU-Z reading or in BIOS?

    Final question :D What voltages should I change besides vcore to max stability? I've determined I can get 3.8Ghz stable with 1.3625 Volts but as for MCH Core, Terminal Volts etc. I forgot what to set them at since I swapped boards.

    I did fix all the voltages as recommended to prevent overvolting. Thanks much everyone for all of your help.

    I don't understand, it's working now?
    Some voltages should not be left auto, see this post.
    Post your full settings using the template in this post or the one after and we'll be able to comment.
