    Thanks. There are still some other issues that they need to work out, but nothing of the magnitude that the throttling presented. I'm very happy that the throttling problem was fixed.

    Man I wish I found this thread a few days ago before my 15 day return policy ended. This is terrible. I installed the new bios and all was well on the windows side, however I also run Mountain Lion and it completely hosed my Mountain Lion install. Everything would freeze once the desktop loaded. Sometimes the desktop would not load at all. Once I flashed back to F3 all was well again...accept throttling, and when the time comes apparently 8 sticks of ram will be an issue too, damn. Not sure what was done to this new bios. But I hope whatever they took out or broke, they fix for the final version, for my sake anyway. Or anyone else using this Board as a base for there hackintosh. I would be stuck with the crippled F3 bios. Since I mainly built this rig as a hackintosh with windows for gaming only. That blows, I hope it gets sorted out.

    Kind of hard for me to go to Gigabyte with this one...

    @dejanh, did gigabyte tell you what they messed with by chance?

    Hey, sorry for the late reply. No, Gigabyte did not tell me what has changed or is causing the memory problems. In my experience though all of the kits that I have tested experienced memory corruption when using 8 DIMMs on this board with all BIOS releases to date, beta or official. I know that they have tried to improve memory support in the latest BIOS that were released (including F4v) but it seems that some timings got severely messed up since the problem with corruption has gotten worse in the newer BIOS. In all, there does not seem to be any solution to any of this right now but Gigabyte is aware of it, that much I know. I am hoping a fix will be available shortly since I now have $350 of my memory sitting in boxes. I cannot use any of it unless I want to seriously mess up my system.

    There is an even DEEPER issue with this board.
    I know most people don't run their computer continuously for over 24 hours.
    Try it. I think u will find that once you shut it down, you will NOT BE ABLE TO RESTART IT.
    (not lights on the motherboard at all).
    IT'S TAKEN ME MANY MANY HOURS OF TESTING TO FIND THE PROBLEM.

    I've had to fix it for a customer.

    I'd like anyone who tests it, as i've described, let me know their results.

    I'll tell you now, that over the many years i've been fixing computers, have made me less and less a Gigabyte fan.
    (have replaced more of their motherboards than any other).
    I've become an ASUS man a loooooooooooooooooooong time ago.

Is there any known way to reliably test the strength of the IMC on these boards? In the X58 world I could push the Uncore to gauge just how strong the IMC is on the chips. Here it seems that I have no such ability.

    Edit: I found one more important bug that should be easy to fix.

    The highest tRC value in the UEFI BIOS that can be manually set for memory is 32, however most of the time higher values than this are needed (all of the recent memory that I used that exceeds 1600MHz runs best with tRC 33 and higher, with my 2133MHz kit requiring tRC 38). We should have the flexibility to set this much higher manually, as high as 75-80 or more. Current limit of 32 is a major problem for running 8 banks of high-speed memory.

    I'm having major stability issues even without overclocking. I'm having constant lockups etc. I put in a support request they got back to me they said they didn't see a problem. The voltage going to the 3rd and 4th pci express slot on my board isn't correct. It's causing the intel server nic to not reset on reboots. I stripped out everything and still get unknown usb device and also no usb device can be installed on the back ports because they are all not seen correctly.

    Machine wont post. Screen doesn't come up all parts are brand new just out of the box. I don't know which BIOS rev it is because the system wont post. Is the board bad or the firmware cant even check the firmware because it wont post. Can I get a board that is functioning?

    Try with only 1 stick of RAM,be sure your video card is in PCIEx16_1 slot.
    Did you connect ATX_12_2x4?
    Are your Apple cinema Display compatible with your video card?
    Any other PSU then OCZ?
    Disconnect all hard/optical drivers,just to boot in BIOS.
