    Default X58A-UD9 an Overclocking nightmare

    Good day lads

    I had been using an EVGA classified for more than a year and it was a good motherboard, I was able to take my Core i7 980x to 4.54x on water with a little work.

    I've decided to give the UD9 a try since it is being sold where I live for a price less than the Asus R3E and the EVGA classified.

    And to be honest with you, I have never felt such a remorse on my spent money more than the money I've wasted on this junk !

    I'm not able to boot with a bclk higher than 156MHz what ever I do, with my old EVGA I could boot at 208 MHz with no issue, with the UD9 just crank the Bclk 1 MHz higher than 156MHz and it will go into infiniet reboot cycle where the motherboard will boot for 1 sec. then tuns off then on then off and so on !!!

    The only way to stop it is to unplug my PSU, do a CMOS clear and then the secondary BIOS will flash the primary BIOS.

    My Gear :

    Ci7 980X
    GA-X58A-UD9
    OCZ DDR3 2000 CL9 3x2GB
    Gigabyte GTX480 tri SLI
    Silverston 1500w PSU

    P.S. motherboard is being cooled by an EK water block, CPU is cooled by a swiftech XT block.

    What bios are you using? Have you update the bios at all? Please grab a bios template from my sig and fill in your current bios settings. You say you are unable to boot past 156 blck but are you stable at 156 blck.. Try running some stablity test like LinX or Prime95 at 156 bclk to make sure the system is even stable at that bclk before tring to push it further.

    LOL, I've posted @ Xtremesystems about this and you also replyed there.

    Any way, I've tried F3, F4, F5i. F5L and all gave me the same issue, but I found out that if I turned of HT I was able to boot and stabilize @ 160 MHz, I have not tried to push more because it is too late where I live and should try tomorrow.

    Let's see, I was able to boot with Bclk 166 if I turn off HT !!!

    Bclk of 167MHz and I get the following issue, please refer to the you tube clip below :
