    I finally got the drives to talk to the board after some trial and error. Apparently, you can't feed them in at the same time. One has to be recognized first. Then the other. Most likely because one was standard IDE, it forcefully took Channel 0 which pushed the SATA drives to the channels below it. Now to solve the popping and clicking from audio.

    It seems to be stable for now, but I don't recommend this board to anyone.

    The only board I've ever owned that passed a DPC test was an AMD board from ASRock. The last few boards I've had were Gigabyte/Intel and each time I had to disable the CPU EIST function to get decent numbers.

    So how does this board look for DPC with EIST, C1E, and C3/C6 disabled? No problems with DPC here ever with any Gigabyte boards, P35, P45, X58, P67, Z68, X79

    Latency issues can be caused by many number of things - drivers, programs, BIOS itself, and hardware including mice/KB, CD/DVD/HDD, LAN cards, USB Cards, graphic cards, ect.

    Here's the setup I'm using now X79-UD3, no problems with it, same as all other Gigabyte boards I've tested that on. To be honest, in the past some older BIOSes gave me issues on a few boards, but they always fixed it with BIOS updates.

    This is what it looks like after turning off EIST:

    GA-G41MT-S2PT does not like DVD-ROM drives-6q6as-png


    Before turning off EIST, the chart were just under to 15000. Now its a constant flat yellow. But no pops or clicks so far.

    Please test a clean install, with NO drivers. Or, if you can't easily do that, test in safe mode, this way you can see if it's caused by software or drivers

    I'll try safe mode. The install is fairly clean.

    Safe mode will be good to test! And just so you know I meant clean as in zero programs and zero drivers installed when I mentioned clean install test.

    Did you install drivers for the board off the motherboard CD? If so, did you use express install or do it manually?

    I recently bought one of these boards from ebay, the issue i have is that one of my two monitors will not come out of standby with the onboard graphics and my tv (1080p 60hz) does not detect an input but will display if i select the vga channel even if it is greyed out, the other issue is whenever i try to boot up with a disc in my dvd drive the system shuts off If i try loading software once xp has booted it shuts off also.

    I tried every sata channel and sata power lead (9 in total 750W psu) with the same result, i swapped the motherboard with an old athlon 64 one from my loft/attic and everything works and detects as it should with no shutdowns.

    Have you suffered any shut down issues with your board? I was using an e5800 and 8gb crucial vengeance ram, the psu is a brand new antec high current gamer with 40amps on quad 12v rails (also tried generic 350W unit), the board has been sent back but the seller is saying nothing is wrong.
