    Default Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD4 Sleep Issue (Loses overclock settings when woken up)

    Hi all, I'm new here and saw that there are quite a few knowledgeable people here...was hoping someone could help me figure out a problem I've been having. My Z68XP-UD4 motherboard loses it's overclock settings after I wake it up from sleep mode. Well actually, it's just the frequency that changes....from 4.5GHz to 3.5GHz, but the voltage actually increases from 1.305v to 1.33v.

    Any ideas on how to fix this? Your help would be greatly appreciated!

    Yes, I'm using the latest bios (F2). QPI/VTT voltage are set to auto; easytune6 shows that it is at 1.05v. Also, I already have Internal CPU PLL voltage disabled.

    I don't believe they've sorted out all the S3 sleep issues yet for these boards, and I think it's Intel that needs to fix it mainly.

    However, since you are not using CPU PLL Overvoltage, I think it should be ok for you as that's the main issue. Since you're not using it, are you 100% tested stable, what did you test with and for how long?

    Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure if I'm 100% stable, but i did make it through 10 passes of Intel Burn Test as well as 2 hours of prime95 without any issue at 4.5GHz 1.305v with LLC Level 5 enabled. (In Easytune6, it shows the voltage as 1.320v under 100% load).

    Are you using the newest version of Prime95? If you are not sure you can get the latest here

    I think you should also run a few other tests, like multiple instances of HCI memtest and maybe OCCT just to be sure your settings are indeed stable.

    Yep I am using the latest prime95, I also tried memtest86 to make sure it's not a RAM issue. How about I reduce the multiplier to 38 but keep the voltage the same (1.305v) -- that will pretty much be guaranteed to be stable, right? If I am able to reproduce the sleep issue under these new OC settings, would that throw out the possibility of this issue being related to the stability of the overclock settings?

    ya that would be a good way to test, then if the issue still is there it's probably just a BIOS bug that they still need to work out.
