    Golden Chip I agree. I just got mine to 5GHz finally (after taking 1 hour of boot loops) 1.488v required (way too much for my taste as well) but temps stay bellow 80 with prime which is amazing.
    Anyway I'm sick of boot loops every morning to decided to buy new motherboard. Friend very much recommended asrock so I've ordered a Asrock extreme6 motherboard. Will see how it goes but this gigabyte issues I'm experiencing are over. I'm really now totally off gigabyte and never buying it again. Used to be big fan (got 11 motherboards in last 5 years) but with this z68 series I'm giving up. Too much issues, constant boot loops, no over clocking resets anymore as they used to be, just boot loops all the time.

    boot loops are usually down to memory settings,or not flashing both chips with the same bios version,i think its alt and f12 at gigabyte splash screen on z68

    But system runs stable for 24 hours, why would boot loop occur after shutting it down? I've checked what you've wrote Memory voltage/Speeds are ok bios is flashed same on both bioses. But problem:
    Once boot loop starts and some times i boot into backup bios I can see my CPU "base" voltage is 1.2.something while on Primary bios base is 1.36.something how is that possible? that could defiantly be the cause for my boot loops since CPU doesn't get the power required for 4.7GHz.

    you've flash both chips using alt and f12? press them fast and repeatedly at the splash screen

    I cant think of what else it can be

    I have yes but before I started overclocking, should I flash them now once I have overclocked CPU?

    I know this is gigabyte forum and all. But I wanted to share my experience.

    Just got my new ASRock Z77-Extreme6 and I have to say ... It is AMAZING!
    Bios is much faster (my Z68XP-UD4) lagged, settings are cool, there are few stuff missing as gigabyte have but I love it.

    I was able to OC my CPU to 5GHz at 1.38 vcore stable now 6 hours prime testing with TOP temps at 77C (much less then before)
    I'm really impressed and happy. Hope this board runs for long time.

    As i said before gigabyte let me down on last motherboard. Not saying I won't try it again in future but for now I'm new ASRock fan.

    Jaka, this is the same CPU (2700K) that needed 1.488v for 5GHz with the Z68XP-UD4, right? Now it only needs 1.38v for 5GHz (with the ASRock board)?

    Yes, same one. I don't know maybe my previous board didn't provide enough stable voltage or something but now when i set fixed voltage of 1.38v on 5GHz OC its stable. Temps are rocket high though so had to drop to 4.7GHz.

    Thank you, that's explain why I couldn't get my 2700K past 4.5Ghz. I also have the Z68XP-UD4 board. Hitting 4.5Ghz was just a matter of setting the multiplier to 45. Any attempt to go higher failed, system would boot but unstable. Time to get a new board and give this one to my son :) He's 10 years old and he already has a 2600K, ******* lol

    Jaka, you may also want to look at getting a better power supply, "Some 750W" won't cut it long term running the CPU that hard with GTX670's in SLI and three HDD's...

    Vin
    Main Rig
    OS = Win8.1
    CPU = i7-980X @ 4.17Ghz 144x29 cooled by custom Loop
    Mem = 12GB 2000Mhz corsair Dominator GT at 2010Mhz @ 9-10-9-27-2T
    MB = Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 v1.0 with F6 Bios - Dead Board
    MB = EVGA X58 Classified3 e770
    GPU = 2x Sapphire r9 290x in xfire
    HD = 2x Toshiba 120GB Raid 0 (580MB Read/140MB Write)
    Storage = 2TB WD Black
    PSU = EVGA SuperNOVA 1300w
    Case = Cooler Master HAF-X 945

    HTPC / Home Server
    OS = Win7 64Bit running XBMC HTPC Front end with Windows Server 2011 Virtual Machine with 8GB ram assigned for homer server with exchange
    CPU = AMD 1090T
    Mem = 16GB 1600Mhz Kingston RED Limited Edition running at 1600Mhz
    MB = Gigabyte 790FXTA-UD5
    GPU- EVGA GT210
    HD = too many to count, but about 5TB of storage all together including backup
    PSU = Corsair TX750
    Case = Too embarrassed to mention.
