    Please, please, please submit your issues to Gigabyte using this site here GIGABYTE

    All you need to do is enter your email address to "log in" so that you can submit issues. Also, please feel free to point them to this thread, and share your experience, and also point them to the OCN thread that I linked early in this thread. It all shows evidence of the exact same problems reported by multiple users all running different systems. I tested every imaginable combination so far all with the same results. The UEFI BIOS is faulty and there is nothing else to say. Every day I seem to discover more and more problems.

    Heard back from Gigabyte on the issue of not being able to run SATA and SAS RAID at the same time...this one is a piece of work but see the responses below yourself, first Gigabyte's, then mine.

    As for the UEFI and Raid bios they are separate and cannot be controlled within the system bios but off the separate raid bios. Unfortunately how Intel design the board are different from other manufactures. Do note this is an Workstation/Desktop board as it will not offer the full capabilities of an true workstation board.

Why was this not considered when it was clearly known that the C606 chipset is intended to provide RAID functionality on both the SATA (using RSTe RAID option ROM) and SAS (using SCU RAID option ROM) ports?

    The amount of problems and oversights with this board is making me seriously question the design and quality control of your motherboards, and consequently my investment in this board.
    Bah!

    Thanks man, I hope that they get resolved in a timely manner too. I did really try hard to prove the point that there are issues, and I have done it diligently at that so I hope that this is enough to bring about some fixes.

    Received another update from Gigabyte today, they are still looking into this matter. Right now I have 4-5 different open issues with them in regards to this board, none have been closed yet. :(

    Stasio provided a new F4s BIOS to test in hope to fix the throttling problem. Unfortunately it did not work and nothing is fixed still

    Test were done using a 44x multiplier with all of the power saving features disabled and the power/current options set to maximum 1200W/300A.

    First, no load at 4.4GHz...


    Next, load applied, first 30 seconds of executing the test at 4.4GHz and the throttling is already happening...


    After several executions and the throttling is still happening...


    As you can see no change to the throttling behavior at all

    One more problem identified with the UEFI BIOS F4s. Switching from RSTe to IRST in the UEFI BIOS causes the POST to hang. When it hangs it is impossible to get back into the UEFI BIOS and the system does not start booting or anything. It just hangs. The only way to fix it from here is to do a full CMOS CLEAR. After a full CMOS CLEAR it is possible to get back into the UEFI BIOS, however, setting RAID to IRST again causes the same problem.

    So it's been approximately a month already since I reported the throttling issues and there is still no resolution to the problem. This is really taking excessively long and I do not understand why the issue is so complex to resolve. Maybe this is an inherent engineering flaw on the board? I am not understanding why the firmware is so difficult to fix...it's not like Gigabyte does not have access to all version of chips to use for troubleshooting the problem.

    When is this going to be resolved?
