Thread: Z68xp-ud5

    Default Z68xp-ud5

    UPDATE: It 'Blue Screens/Crashes' as soon as I start Prime95, other than that it runs great-

    I built my brothers' pc with the Z68XP-UD5

    On my rig, I manually configure the CPU Voltage, DRAM Voltage & Timings, I never use EasyTune 6-

    He is semi-noob though, & really isn't interested in learning the BIOS, but he likes the 'ease' of the Gigabyte QuickBoost feature-

    I currently have his BIOS set at 'Default'-

    The problem is 'most', if not all settings are on 'AUTO', and it appears that the voltages fluctuate and are inconsistent when checked wih TouchBios, CPU-Z, & HWMonitor-

    Question: Are the CPU/DRAM Voltages 'safe' when using QuickBoost at both the 'Default' & 'Optimal' BIOS settings?

    Thanks! -al

    Also, is it best to just load the BIOS at 'Default' for best 'performance' when installing the OS for the first time?

    He has the 2600K, 16GB Corsair Vengeance, and the Z68XP-UD5

    It crash when OCed with Prime95 or at stock defaults too?
    There's no way to tell if Optimized settings are "safe" untill you post what they results with.
    It's realy not that difficult to learn OC with BIOS with Sandy Bridge, only a few settings ever need to be touched.
